    [Blog] Email Marketing Tips
    know that you have a different state of mental rhythms when thinking about your inbox than when you think about blogs you read. Inboxes Don’t Replace Blogs or Social Networks. You can’t replace that, and it just doesn’t happen on your blog. But again, this doesn’t replace your main site or blog. Now, I’m doing something a bit differently. I’m also using a popup box to invite people to get the blog sent to the inbox. These are two completely different processes at present. I don’t mix my newsletter with my blog.

    [Blog] Customer Experience Should Have Texture
    Social media can be a texture, a tweet to say thank you for your recommendation, a blog post to help the research, a podcast to help people understand more about the life you wish to influence. Customer experience is such a vital part to the purchasing, and most importantly re-purchasing process. Experience is the sum of many parts and I like to see it as textured or at least to attempt to create a textured experience. If you think of plain cotton material - I like to see that as the core principles on which all customer service stands:- honesty, transparency, simplicity and politeness.

    Without a forced break from email, text messages, Facebook and an endless stream of online news and blogs, I am an information addict. One AP reporter disconnects for two days and lived to tell her story. …. “I readily admit that I am powerless. Spending a few days without mobile service in an age where smartphones have become like limbs for many, I found immense value in disconnecting from our always-on, always-connected world.”.

    [Blog] The iPad Stimulus Plan
    David Rothman writing on James Fallows' blog says we need an iPad stimulus plan. Fallows: "In this essay, (Rothman) proposes ways that radically speeded-up adoption of the iPad-style devices could serve economic-stimulus and social-equality needs at the same time." It's a lengthy essay, but compelling in that Rothman sees the iPad as a way to help media and education in one fell swoop. It would be great to see tablets become a pivotal way we retrain the workforce. #. Permalink. Leave a comment »

    Jackson blogs at on public relations, social media and communications at  Proper Propaganda , which allows him to indulge a strange love of Communist art. Guest post by Jackson Wightman. ROI (a.k.a. return on investment) is important. But it’s oft-derided in digital circles. If you invest $1,000 dollars in shares of a firm, you need to know what that $1,000 is doing for you. If it is not doing anything positive, you’ll move it somewhere else. The same goes for investments of time and effort. That’s a pretty good, if obvious, question. Also reasonable. Quite the contrary actually.

In their forward to the “Muses” section, the editors point to a chapter on the blogosphere, noting that “bloggers post as a way to think with and through ideas; as a nexus for collaborative thinking; as a vehicle for sharing resources; and, when outraged by shoddy practices or a pundit’s opinion, readers (and blogs) become tacit support groups not bounded by geography or places of employment.”
