Experimental Geo-Marketing using Golf Balls
In February, 2015 Twitter announced it had reached a deal with Google to make its tweets more searchable online. If you’re looking to expand the ‘social signals’ that Google count in their ranking algorithms, consider this innovative approach by long time colleague Steve Bennet who has had 48 Titleist golf balls marked “If Found, tweet course/hole to @professorVC“.

I hope it inspires you to go and play golf and think about combining geo, Twitter and social into your online optimization campaigns.
