Embracing Social Media

Social media has been core to our company from the beginning. When I say the beginning, I truly mean the beginning. I have been engaging in social media before it was called “social media” and before the word “blog” came into our nomenclature. Here’s a little history. SCOTTEVEST was the first clothing brand formed on the internet as a direct to consumer channel. Check out the earliest version of my website here. Since we were the first, we had to figure out how to reach out to these people that could potentially be interested in my brand. It was simple, reach out to where they are. They are on the internet. Before Facebook existed I did this through blogs, forums, boards, or anywhere people were talking about gadgets online. I would engage on all of these gadget boards with the intent of contacting as many people as possible. Having the ability to engage instantly with these gadgeteers turned a big light bulb on. It taught me to embrace this medium of talking directly to these people, which is now generally referred to as social media. Then came along Dave Ciccone with Mobility Today.

Prologue…and so it begins

I have intended to write a book about this topic for some time now, but have just never gotten around to it. To ensure that I accomplish this goal of mine, I have decided to create this blog, which will house a series of articles that I write, that will one day be the basis of my book, “FU: In My Own Words. I invite you to come along with me on this ride. I will share past successes and failures, random thoughts, and insight into how I run my company and my personal life. And I truly want feedback as it relates to this process. Tell me your thoughts – positive and negative. I will read any and all responses. So without anymore delay, let’s start the conversation.... read more
