    [Comments] Influenster: Green VoxBox Review
    Respond to Mentions: Mentions are Twitter’s equivalent of comments.  Give me a shout in the comments below to let me know how you plan to use these to get your tweets noticed. Twitter is a game changer for new blogs.  By far, it is the easiest and cheapest way to get readers to your blog. However, effectively using twitter to get noticed is more art than science.  When I started, I made some embarrassing goofs. Such as: retweeting my own posts, posting my blog links 10-15 times a day, not retweeting other people’s stuff, and other knucklehead moves. Here’s mine.

    [Comments] What Is Agile Marketing?
    Let us know in the comments. To understand “agile marketing,” you must first understand the whole agile methodology. Introduced first for software development, this method focuses on using new work cadences, sometimes known as “sprints,” to prepare for an unpredictable workflow. The traditional method is known as the “waterfall” method, or put simply, taking on each task as it comes, even if it’s piled on top of something you’re already working on. Bear in mind: The word “agile” is often used to describe situations where agile marketing isn’t used at all. How Does It Work? Sprint Review.

I’m sure you’ve heard it before, but I have to say that there’s still something nostalgic about getting a new issue of my favorite magazine sent to me in the mail, and having the ability to actually flip through its crisp pages as I scan from page to page. Why is this the trend I’m seeing with print magazines? Maybe.

    Whether you realize it or not, every tweet, comment and “Like” is being scrutinized and scored for your social influential power. Companies like Klout and Kred are developing complex algorithms that attempt to standardize social influence and evaluate your social muscle to develop strategic business insights for influencer strategies. However, social scores should be taken with a grain of salt, as these algorithms are yet to capture the full picture. Mark is a globally-recognized educator, speaker, business consultant, and author.

    When looking at conversations just on Twitter itself, that number skyrockets to 94% of comments being negative. If you believe the trends, the speculations, and the odd lack of true hype surrounding the Twitter IPO, you’ll probably be asking yourself if this is going to be more like Facebook or more like Zynga. If it’s like the former, than it will only plummet at the start and eventually rebound. If it’s like Zynga, it may never recover despite their recent gains. Those are the questions that are circulating the day before the IPO. Will investors bite?
