Read Small Message, Big Impact to Get Your Message Out in a Big Way: Stories & Elevator Pitches

Read Small Message, Big Impact to Get Your Message Out in a Big Way: Stories & Elevator Pitches | Business Information | Scoop.it
Wanna know a secret?  I’m a marketing expert and my elevator pitch STINKS.  Come to think of it, I don’t really have a good elevator pitch.

 

What a great article about Elevator Pitches -- how they don't work and how to rethink them -- and how to actually start sharing a story.

 

There are lots of good tips here and I love how the author shares his own struggles with this. The article is also reviewing a new book out on this topic. But the author of this post gives such good tips that I was happy to curate it. I'll probably even buy the book :)

 

Now dump that elevator pitch, get the insights and tips here, and start engaging people about your business in meaningful ways. You will gain more business!

Startup Success: Is Hard Work Enough?

Startup Success: Is Hard Work Enough? | Business Information | Scoop.it

A good friend of mine has long argued that startups can succeed through vision and hard work. Because I only partially agree with his position, we have had more than one heated argument on the subject. It is my belief that hard work and a great idea are required ingredients for success, but that those two elements alone are not enough for a startup to become a success.

 

Imagine a great Amazonian rainforest. As your mind floats along the banks of a surging river in this rainforest, pause for a moment and take in the strength and beauty of the mightiest of the trees that you can see in front of you. Reaching above all of the other plants and collecting a shower of precious sunlight, this tree is over 100 feet tall, with sinewy roots reaching deep into the rich forest soil. Beautiful isn’t it?

 

Did this tree get to be the the giant that it is because of hard work? Not hardly.

Merge multiple RSS feeds into one with Dlvr.it

Merge multiple RSS feeds into one with Dlvr.it | Business Information | Scoop.it
If you have followed my career for a while, you probably know that this blog is not the only place where I share my articles. I also write for Examiner.com and Digital Journal.


You also probably know that I like to make things as easy as possible for my readers. As such, they can access all my content from a central spot: Feedburner.


How did I do it?
1) I merged all my RSS feeds into one with Dlvr.it. This great service automatically posts articles to Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Tumblr. It also tracks performance and provides relevant stats, such as audience, followers, clicks, and popular posts
2) Dlvr.it allowed me to create a central RSS feed whose link I added to Feedburner.


In this short tutorial, I will show you how to aggregate all your feeds in a few easy steps.

I am adding this to my seminar resources. Having another set of tools for my teachers to create their PIE Infographics is important.  Creating visual representations of learning is such a powerful learning for teachers and is a skill they can transfer to their classroom and for students to create in the classroom.
