Webgrrl's insight:

Lumi Inkodye is the world's only light-sensitive textile dye. Inkodye can be brushed, dipped, rolled, stamped, stencilled, screen printed, and more! Works on most natural fibres such as cotton, rayon, linen, wool, silk, and even leather, wood and unglazed ceramics. Dilute with water for varying colour intensity from vibrant to pastel tones.

RGB vs. CMYK: The Digital Print Debate | Artdictive Habits : Sustainable Lifestyle | Scoop.it

RGB comes in many flavors including Adobe RGB and sRGB. Adobe RGB is a larger color space than sRGB, containing more colors and more highly saturated colors.

Are you a 'business card bomber'? Seven Networking mistakes to avoid

Are you a 'business card bomber'? Seven Networking mistakes to avoid | Artdictive Habits : Sustainable Lifestyle | Scoop.it

Unfortunately these types can be found at just about every networking event: over-eager networkers who thrust their business card at you and launch into a monologue about their company.

Business coach Melanie Miller calls it "biz card bombing" and it's her biggest networking gripe.

Webgrrl's insight:

"There is zero connection, they ask no questions and have little to no interest in anyone else's business," she says.
A better way to get your message across is to establish a more meaningful connection with a small number of people at the event, says Miller.


"A great lesson I learned years ago was to take no more than three business cards to an event," she says.
"Seek out the three people you most would like to form a relationship with and to follow up after the event. It worked well for me."

There is a difference: Affiliate Marketing vs. Referral Marketing

There is a difference: Affiliate Marketing vs. Referral Marketing | Artdictive Habits : Sustainable Lifestyle | Scoop.it

Looking at the words ‘affiliate’ and ‘referral’, one would assume that these two forms of marketing are practically similar, but there are striking differences. 

Webgrrl's insight:

this excerpt /summary from another article explains it well. 

 

In a referral program, your brand ambassadors are typically your customers. They are already fans of your product, they are educated about the features, and they can speak with first hand experiences. Affiliates on the other hand, tend to be motivated financially and lack first-hand experience with the product. Affiliates are primarily self-interested. (via http://snip.ly/bljW)

The algorithm is based on the quality of a pin, the quality of a pin’s source (blog or website), and rating of a pin (assigned by Pinterest). Each factor is given weight based on the number of people who link to the pin or the direct source. This means you’ll need to do things a little differently in order for your pins to get exposure and produce results.
