    [Blog] Ideas Require Application
    ” You might reply, “I’ll blog about it.” 'I find that people come up with ideas all the time, mint them, and then post them out there for people to consider. Take my idea of the new cities of the web. It’s interesting to consider. For instance, if you’re selling insurance or lawn care products, what will you do with this information? That’s what I’m working on today, such as it were. Because the idea alone isn’t fully useful, is it? Ideas Require Application. ” That wouldn’t get us from Boston to London. And then what?

    Gail makes an  excellent point on UXBooth  (a blog you should be reading). You can spend a lot of time creating new features for your community, or you can refine the features your members use a lot.    Doing the latter will usually have the biggest impact.    This is also true for non-tech elements. You can spend a lot of time creating new types of content, building up new relationships with members or creating new events, or you can spend that time improving the content, relationships and events you do have.  Your time is precious.

    The Power of Listening is a post from: Convince and Convert Blog: Social Media Strategy and Social Media Consulting. He’d kill us if he had the chance. This ominous phrase lies at the center of the plot in Francis Ford Coppola’s brilliant 1974 thriller “The Conversation”. The film tells a story about listening. Gene Hackman plays Harry Caul – a surveillance expert with a unique ability to record private conversations. He’s a clever investigator and he’s skilled at manipulating (the hilariously analog) 70s-era surveillance technology. But he doesn’t really listen.

    [Blog] My Favourite Things.
    I often get asked what is my favourite blog, favourite podcast, favourite Engaging Brand interview.and I believe the answer can only be. The next blog I read, the next podcast I listen to.the next book I read, the next guest which is on The Engaging Brand. Because for me.the best thing that I will do is still to come, the best thing I is what I am going to do or create tomorrow. Because if I have learned from the past then my future must be better! The fact that all I will do, will be even better than what I have done.is why I just love the future! Marketing

    [Blog] Take the 7 Link Challenge Today #7links
    post on someone else’s blog that you wish you’d written. You might like to add a few explanations to different links – for example to talk a little about why you enjoyed writing a post or what you like about the post on another blog that you link to or why you regret the post you regret. The main aim of doing this challenge is to create a list post that highlights some of the posts in your archives to new readers (a sneeze page ), that links out to another blog and that hopefully is a little fun (and not too much work) to do. Your most helpful post.

    [Blog] The 5 Elements of Authoritative Content
    The same thing applies to mainstream blogs like ChrisBrogan , SethGodin , ZenHabits , LateralAction , and so on. These blogs are not authoritative because they have hit the mainstream, no. Blogs, in most cases, are read because of the fresh perspective the authors bring to their chosen niches. Blogging would have been a joke if not for this key factor. It is the totality of your knowledge base as a writer, and the unique insight gained as a result of learning about a concept, that makes blogs worth reading. business development blog. of MADphilips.

    [Blog] Seth Godin Contradicts His Marketing Advice
    Seth Godin gives free marketing advice every day on his blog. I’ve subscribed to his blog for about two years and soak up his insights like water on bread. Some of his articles stick out in my head more than others but, when he writes something that completely contradicts something he wrote in the past, I get very frustrated. Case in point… Seth’s latest article is titled Alienating the 2% and he argues companies should ignore, not engage, their small percentage of critics. And you’ll probably hear a lot more from the unhappy 2% than from the delighted 98.

    [Blog] Implementing Enterprise 2.0 at a Healthcare Organization Pt 2: Change Management
    They received quite a few basic questions such as the difference between a blog and a tweet.

The contents of this case study are based on a series of conversations and interviews that took place in July and July 2011, and conducted with an IT professional who leads the Enterprise 2.0 project at a mid-size healthcare organization. A push also came from the bottom and middle.
