JS: The Jets had me do celebrity interviews and they also had me there as a celebrity guest as a Playboy model, as an SI Columnist. They got a very good response to me and liked how I interacted with the fans. So this year they thought I would be a great face for the Jets utilizing an idea that the Philadelphia Eagles use – a totally in-house media production center and something other than random dudes in the box above. So they gave me a shot and and I’ve had an absolute blast so far this season. The work is Jets’ property and will be Jets’ web material but I am hoping SNY and CBS picks up some of it as well. I’ve done some interviews for SNY and anything that they picked up would be awesome.

The Blogs are overflowing with “how to” lessons on “taming the beast,” we call Social Media Marketing. You don’t have to look very hard to find blog posts that promise great results from a one-hour daily commitment in Social Media. Is this not possible? I suppose it is; depending on a number of unique variables that begin with having a realistic set of goals and expectations. What works well for some may not work as well for others. So, don’t be disappointed if what you read somewhere was not the panacea you hoped it might be. Your situation may require an entirely different approach.
There is much to consider before you commit to throwing some alternative media onto your web space. Do you need professional help, er, I mean help from a profession media producer, of course!? Editing media in accordance to the performance of your site, your server and your software’s capabilities can be a task and a half for someone who is not properly trained in doing so.
