SPOS #627 - The Domain Name Game With Bill Sweetman

Welcome to episode #627 of Six Pixels of Separation

Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation - Episode #627 - Host: Mitch Joel. A strong brand and corporate name is critical to demonstrating your uniqueness in the marketplace. The competitive forces are at play. Many people believe that all of the good names are already taken. The problem, of course, is that even if you can secure a strong and original brand identity, getting the right domain name can be costly, time consuming and extremely frustrating. Thankfully, there are smart people like Bill Sweetman who love the domain game. I've been fortunate to know Bill for over a decade. He's a former digital agency professional (who was in the space almost twenty years ago), before switching to his true passion: domain names. His company is called, Name Ninja. He is focused solely on helping individuals and brands get the domain names that are best for them. He is a very successful and respected domain name industry business leader with extensive experience in the domain aftermarket (or secondary market) of premium domain names, including domain pricing, distribution, and sales. A self-confessed domain name fanatic, Bill registered his very first domain in 1994 (which he later sold) and has been perfecting his "Domain Karate" moves ever since. If you've ever wondered how the domain business has become so wild and hard to navigate, you do not want to miss this. Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #626 - Daniel Pink Puts The Science Into Timing

Welcome to episode #626 of Six Pixels of Separation

Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation - Episode #626 - Host: Mitch Joel. It's hard not to be a fan of the work that Daniel Pink does. He is the author of six provocative books (Free Agent Nation, The Adventures of Johnny Bunko, A Whole New Mind, Drive, To Sell Is Human and his newest, When - The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing). His books have won multiple awards and have been translated into 37 languages. That's just the beginning of how his thinking has permeated into the work culture. He's usually spotting trends and ways to think differently about how we live and work, long before it becomes a household name or a growing trend. From television shows to magazine articles, Dan works tirelessly to figure out how to make his own life more efficient, and - in doing so - he shares his findings with all of us. When is a brilliant, compelling and fun book to read. Think about when you do your work. How do you choose when to do it? Gut? Instinct? When someone books you in a meeting? These are terrible ways to make your days as efficient as possible, according to Dan. It turns out that when you do stuff is as powerful as what you do. Don't believe me? Listen in. Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #623 - Unsafe Thinking With Jonah Sachs

Welcome to episode #623 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast

Here it is: Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast - Episode #623 - Host: Mitch Joel. It was the early 2000s and viral marketing was just getting started. That's when Jonah Sachs rose to prominence. He created some of the world's first viral videos. His agency, Free Range Studios, created campaigns, like Amnesty International's awareness-raising video on blood diamonds (which was seen by 20 million people). Later Jonah helped to create The Story of Stuff, which was viewed by over 60 million people and marked a turning point in the fight to educate people about the environmental and social impact of consumer goods. Jonah went onto to create other viral campaigns for Greenpeace, Human Rights Campaigns and the ACLU, as well as consumer brands like Microsoft and Patagonia. Fast Company named him one of today's 50 most influential social innovators. In 2012, Jonah released his first book, Winning the Story Wars. Most recently, he published his sophomore effort, Unsafe Thinking - How to Be Nimble and Bold When You Need it Most. So, how safe is your brand thinking? Enjoy the conversation...
