Weekly Matchbook – 5 Items to Ignite Your BusinessPosted: January 28, 2012 | |
Everyone needs some good advice every once in a while, or a nudge to get them going again. Perhaps some proverbial fire under a stagnant situation. Here’s my periodical nudge, called the “Weekly Matchbook“.
After seeing some of John Jantsch’s and Christopher S. Penn’s content marketing, I’ve decided to post a weekly shortlist of business tools and/or articles I have found helpful and believe to be of particular interest to you in your business endeavors. All items posted here are recent discoveries from the past week. However, I might sprinkle in some timeless pieces every now and again if I feel they are too good to pass up.
INSTRUCTIONS: Use the Matchbook to spark ideas; a small set of kindling that can provide some heat when you need it.
Here’s this week’s Matchbook:
Ideas #1 and #5 are particularly good. #2 is also worth mentioning.
A somewhat poetic anthem on marketing by Simon Sinek. Strategy is dripping through it.
A nice shortlist of CRM tools that do things others don’t. Currently trying out Nimble.
4. Bufferapp.com – by Buffer
Excellent social media tool. Here’s how you use it: add social media posts (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) to Buffer. Buffer then posts for you throughout the day at times when you will receive the most click-throughs. No scheduling required.
There are so many of these musings out on the web, that it’s best not to ignore the chance they might be right (i.e. Chris Brogan’s Google+ for Business). Read this article with a strategic mindset. Read it logically.
