Mark Traphagen - Socially Correct!

You've been on the Internet for a while.  You can search and find stuff.  You know what boo-lee-un does, but you can't spell it. What you can't explain, you can fake.
When the boss asked if you had a "MySpaceBook website portal social network thingie", you smiled and said "Of course!"  When they mentioned Google+ you nodded, "I'm aware."  You showed them how to send a text message and became an instant 'guru'.  But when their 11 year old asked you what "WTF" meant,  and you replied "We're The Future", your fate was sealed.
Congratulations. You've done it. You've been promoted to Social Media Marketing Director. You're going to need to circle +Mark Traphagen

Who Is Mark Traphagen?

There are many social media folks out there. Mark is one of them. He's not going to boast much more than that. He's not going to tell you he's 'the best' or 'the most knowledgeable'.  He's more likely to say 'I know what I know' or nothing at all. He's unassuming, very helpful, and socially correct. Once you start following him, you'll understand the importance of that.

What Mark Does 

Mark is Director of Digital Outreach for Virante Inc..  According to the page "Mark helps businesses build strategies to increase brand influence and attract natural links and social signals. He has a special reputation as an expert on Google+ and Google Authorship."  That would be an understatement. If I were to SEO bomb this page in an effort to garner some of his Googleness authority, he would know it. But he probably wouldn't say anything as long as it wasn't done maliciously. Read his stuff. You'll see what I mean. 

When You Would Need Mark

You should start reading his stuff today. That way when the boss walks in and says "Why ain't we selling anything?', you can put something for him in plain-speak. That's the way Mark does it.  He doesn't call it a 'method of illumination requiring energized matter to be effectively utilized'.  He just calls it a lightbulb.

Where You Can Find Mark 

Just roll your mouse over the image on the bottom of the page.  The links are there.  Not all of them. You're going to have to follow some links and do some research. He's in a bunch of places.  My job is to point you in the right direction. It's up to you to continue the journey. 

How Mark Can Help You

You would have to discuss that with Mark. They offer a wide range of services involving social campaigns. 

Why You Should Believe Mark

Ok. Pay attention on this one. It's important.  Mark is 'socially correct'. That means his answers, responses and posts include accountability.  He includes his own personae in that accountability.  He knows the days he's the windshield.  He accepts the days when he's the bug.  Take a week or two and read his stuff, I'm sure you'll see what I mean.
