A few weeks back we heard the news that Stahmanns closed their candy store. We were pretty disappointed that we have to find a new place for our Thanksgiving Pecan Pie, but everyone should know that this great Southern New Mexico business isn't going away.

The estate that has been growing pecans in the Mesilla Valley since the 1930s is still growing strong and plans to be here for generations to come.

Would you pay an actor to go to Las Cruces Chamber of Commerce events and pretend to be you? 

Then why would you pay someone to pretend to be you on Facebook.

When I talk to friends about what I do, they frequently ask "when are businesses going to stop cramming their sales messages down our throats." 

I think the essence is, will there ever be a social network that's about being fun and social, not just another place for the used car salesmen of marketing to make us feel awkward. 

I agree with the essence of the message. While I try to help people understand how social media is used for marketing purposes, I focus my message on the importance of being genuine, social and building relationships. That means most of you shouldn't ... Continue Reading
