Since Todd And‘s list of the Power 150 marketing blogs went up on Advertising Age last week, refocused as the AdAge Power150, I’ve seen a steady stream of visitors from a link to here on that list.
I wanted to say ‘welcome’ if you’ve arrived here for the first time via that list.
I imagine you’re here just to check out who is Neville Hobson and should you spend any time here again. As I don’t write a great deal exclusively about advertising or marketing, that would be a reasonable thought.
So why should you visit again or subscribe to the content here in your RSS reader?
Let’s start with how I describe this site:
The place at the intersection of business, communication and technology. Sometimes, it’s a collision.
That’s more of a philosophy, actually.
What may interest you are two topics I write about frequently – social media and virtual communities and the profound changes happening in organizations. Those big topics touch advertising, marketing, PR… indeed, every organizational communication function.
I also write a great deal about technology, especially how it impacts people and organizations.
And I co-present a twice-weekly business podcast, For Immediate Release, that is all about that intersection of online communication, business and technology. That podcast is all about community – why not listen to an episode?
It’s not just the content I write, though. That’s purely one side of a conversation. It’s also the comments people like you leave as their contributed points of view on a given topic.
There have been some vibrant and passionate discussions here – take a look at the links to ‘Current conversations’ and ’10 most commented posts’ in the sidebar to your right to get an idea.
If you want to know a bit more about me, I do have an About page. (I’m a Brit, by the way, based in the UK.) And if you’d like to get in touch, there’s contact info here as well.
In any event, I hope you find something here that interests you.
Let me know if you do. Or if you don’t.
I have indeed found you via the Ad Age 150, funnily enough for a piece I was doing about the power of social influencers. Really like the blog and particularly the discussion about Facebook. I’ll check out the podcast when I have a mo.
I think it’s interesting that we no longer just talk about media and marketing without talking about technology and communications – maybe Ad Age is a bit of an old fashioned name!
