U.S. Is World's Biggest Source Of Spam (Those annoying emails are coming from right here)

While many, many, MANY people still blame Nigeria for scams and spam, isolating Nigeria as the main source of spam is trying to solve spam based only upon reputation and not on fact.  Take a look at this post for Consumer Affairs:

I have been in some form of marketing and advertising all my life and did not let all that get in my way of grabbing hold of Social Media Marketing and doing it as if it were a traditional marketing/advertising channel. Not so easy. Many of my comrades-in-arms cannot make the leap from formal channel advertising to informal.


But it is here, Social Media Marketing and it is here as a major player in many companies, be it B2C or B2B, be a player of a…

Low Ball Pricing? Don’t Go There!

It is a common strategy for small businesses is to undercut the competition by charging lower prices. Especially true for new businesses, those looking to expand quickly or those who see sales deteration and loss. Don’t do it!


Think about it. If every graphic artist charges $100 an hour, you figure you'll gobble up the business by charging $50 an hour. Don’t do it!


Charging low prices or "low-balling," as it is commonly known is a terrible business strategy…

Retweet: Branding A Socially Responsible Signature File

In his book "The Complete Idiot's Guide To Growing Your Business With Google", I was happy to see that our own Dave Taylor included a section on "The Importance of Signatures"  (pp 204-205).


In that section, Dave mentions that "A good signature block contains your name, contact e-mail address, website address, phone number, and a one- or…

You Have To Help Us Find Your Need...

One of the oddest things about the beautiful human mind is that it can trick us out of getting what we need. And we can come up with an endless number of reasons why we haven't addressed a need but, the troublesome thing about "needs" is that they don't go away - on their own, that is.

Recently, I've been having some terrific conversations with some of the most intelligent men and women I've ever met.

Yet, there seems to be this common thread among many of them: many…

How Do You Score Your Social Media?

So how do the “pros” score their social media efforts?


Today's top marketers are starting factor social interactions into their lead scoring. Why? Because that is where the action is! These conversations often can indicate buying signals and   behavior and allow marketers to bring leads to a sale or the sales department faster, and beating out the competition that is using traditional lead scoring or dare I say no lead scoring at all.

However, across all Ning sites, the easiest way to locate your personal page is to click on your name in the uppermost right hand side of the site.  


For example, when I want to access my profile page for a status update, I…

While it's not generally discussed that much in social media circles, a coaching relationship is a BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP.
What that means is that both the coach and the coached have traditional business principles and practices which they must honor in order to get the most out of the coaching.
The coach AND the coached MUST consider the impact of punctuality.  While being late or missing a meeting ONCE IN AWHILE is tolerable, a recurring pattern of lateness and/or…
