Pam Moore (@PamMktgNut) is founder and CEO of Marketing Nutz. She has 15+ years of experience helping everyone from entrepreneurs to fortune 500 organizations build winning brands and integrated platforms that sustain business.

Personally, I've had the pleasure of conversing with Pam on more than a fair share of occasions through Twitter. Her friendly approach and personable nature made it easy to start a conversation. Perhaps what has impressed me more is her ability to accept what she hasn't mastered. Shortly after we recorded her episode, I found her utilizing social media to find a greater understanding of Snapchat.

The reality is we aren't all-knowing - as much as many "social" folks - seem to think they can be. Pam gets that! Enjoy the conversation.

This Week On Why I Social, Pam and I talk about:

  • Omni-channel versus multi-channel
  • Writing a book with a co-author
  • Starting a company

Alissa Trumbull is a freelance writer and graphic designer. Throughout her career, she's held a variety of unique and interesting roles including teacher, HR director and sales manager.

My own interactions with Alissa prior to a few months ago have all been through Twitter where she excels and is actively involved with many projects including #foodiechat. 

As a personal bonus for me I must note that this podcast was recorded just two weeks after I visited Chicago (and saw Alissa face-to-face). After the mention of "Social Road Trip" in two of the most recent episodes, it's appropriate I turned one of my own recent road trips into a guest appearance. In honor of that trip, this week's "Five Favorites" are Chicago themed!

This Week On Why I Social, Alissa and I talk about:

  • Working behind the scenes at a beauty pageant
  • Chicago style pizza (don’t act surprised)
  • Being a storyteller when building relationships

Aaron Kilby is Director of Marketing and Business Development at Artisan Colour. He’s also the creator of #Mediachat - one of the most popular and longest running Twitterchats on-going. At the time we recorded, he was getting ready to host Randi Zuckerberg, the sister of Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg.

It’s important to note (since we talked about so many great things we never got around to it) that Aaron is well-known for his love of bacon. His experience in the graphic design industry, however, is often not discussed and it was a true joy to learn about where his passion for the industry came from in this episode.

This Week On Why I Social, Aaron and I talk about:

  • The story behind #mediachat (enter #pantschat)
  • Getting into graphic design
  • The power of fonts

Get To Know Aaron
