Tossing your company’s hat in the social media arena is extremely popular right now, and you might even feel pressured to “not be the last on your block” doing it, but failing to chart your course before you begin can doom your efforts.

Take a minute to check out Catherine’s post and avoid the temptation of the deadly social media sins.

Max Speed

If the Pole Position Marketing team had a muse—and it does—it would be Max Speed. We love Max’s occasionally off-color, usually amusing and always pointed “Maxisms.” (Maybe “Maxims” would be a better word.) Max gives voice to some of the things we think but, bound by professional decorum, aren’t permitted to say. At least, not out loud.
