Twitter and the Brands that Dominate


Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, in my admittedly humble opinion, have always been the social media platforms that I get the most mileage out of. And out of all the ones I would probably deem “most useful” in a customer service type capacity, I would have to probably dub Twitter the winner. Apparently other businesses agree with me.   There are quite a few big brands that have...

Novel Idea- Pick Up The Phone And Call Your Twitter Followers


This is a guest post courtesy of my buddy and biz associate, who is one of the most sincere and genuine folks I’ve had the pleasure of making friends with via social media.  Of course he’s the polar opposite of moi, because he actually LIKES talking to folks on the phone and meeting people on the realz. hehe Not to say I hate meeting new people, I am just the type who tends to get a...

To Do… or Not To Do… Getting Social with a Marketing Agency


Social media is here to stay folks. The platforms may change, processes may change, but it’s definitely not going anywhere. Unless of course we experience a sudden worldwide blackout, REVOLUTION style. (Tell me you get the reference!) But I digress. Some people, unfortunately for them, still tend to look at social media as a waste of time, or as merely a toy for young people. Some...

Simple Social Media Marketing for Your Small Business


This is a guest post courtesy of Ken on social media marketing for your business. Social media is one of the primary ways I market my own small biz and it’s how I got started originally.  My first handful of clients came from forums, and then the rest trickled in from Twitter.

Stop Diluting Your Brand And Up Your Twitter Power


This is a guest post by a dear member ‘o my tribe and BGB contributor Kazia. Please note, while I myself have multiple Twitter accounts I can’t argue with her logic! I find the bulk of my tweeting and activity is on my BGB account, and very little action happens on the other two! So read, learn, and implement grasshoppers… some good shite here. Oh and be sure to make her feel...

Social Networking, Tobri and Ants- Social Media Gets Graphic


We’ve seen them all come and we’ve seen them all go. There were different gimmicks, different features, different ways of trying to reel in the public and get as many people as possible to sign up for an account. We’ve watched their birth, their tentative climb towards success, the eventual plateau in popularity, and finally the natural death that comes to claim everything in this world. No, I’m...

A Day of Recognition- Top #FollowFriday Tweeps and Why


OK, so I’m not a huge fan of #FollowFriday these days, because most folks just lump a huge tweet full of people together and say #FF with no specific reason on why you should follow those people, or have auto-tweets set up that recommend the same Tweeps every Friday. However I do participate here and there and try to thank the folks who recommend me. That said, I decided to write a post today on...


Cori (that's me!) is a wildly hire-able freelance writer as well as the creative brains and dubious brawn behind this blog you're reading right now, My Name is Cori, & Salt, Light, and Faith. Oh and you might also call her an author. Visit C.B. Stone Books for more.

Have a question? Need a quote? Feel free to reach out via my contact page, and I'll reply as soon as possible. You can also check out my new website at MyNameisCori.com for information on content retainers and portfolio links.

The best compliment that I can pay Cori is to simply say that “she gets it”.

She works extremely hard to capture the written “voice” that will define your business. Cori intuitively knows how to deliver your message in a voice that is both creative and effective. As a newly-minted small business owner, I rely heavily on both her counsel and her expertise. And on top of all of that, she’s hilarious!
