    [Blog] A Double Dose of #measurePR
    And if I were you, I’d subscribe to both Small Business Labs (Steve’s blog) and the  Twitalyzer blog , they’re chockfull of good stuff. You’ve probably been wondering where the #measurePR Twitter chat recaps are. Well, once WTHashtag went down, all of us who moderate chats on a regular basis were scratching our heads a little… ‘cos where were we supposed to get the chat transcripts from? recently started using RowFeeder and, fortunately, had set up a search for #measurepr there. So that’s where I pulled these transcripts from.

    [Blog] 10 Great Resources to be Reading Over the Holidays
    We have even included it in a list of great resources for sourcing blog content. Another blog that every marketer should be reading over the holidays (and during business-as-usual) is the Hubspot blog. The Moz blog is a little more technical, but highly informative. Though the core discussions of the blog are primarily search-based, you can expect to find a lot of information about social as well. Although Avinash Kaushik’s blog is not updated on a daily basis, there is plenty of content (relaying information at a very high level) that marketers can use.

    [Blog] You’ve got a bird in your hand. Now what?
    Which is why I’ve always enjoyed and respected Becky Carroll and her blog Customers Rock. … Do you value what you already have? Like the old idiom goes…a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. I’d argue, when the bird is a customer, the ratio is even greater. For years, at the risk of preaching, I have been banging on the idea that we spend way too much time and energy chasing after potential customers and way too little time and energy romancing (and creating a love affair ) our current customers. I’ve pushed on the idea that our math is all backwards.

    [Blog] Why would you want to enchant someone?
    As you know, I talk about creating love affairs with your customers a lot here on the blog. Guy Kawasaki’s enchanting new book. Why do I think it’s so critical? Let’s look at how people behave when they’re in the bloom of a new love. They find the other person intoxicating — they crave more. They can’t help themselves. They talk about their new love all the time. To everyone and anyone who will listen. They are very forgiving of missteps or mistakes. Now translate that back to a customer, donor, employee, volunteer, boss or vendor. Potato, potato.
