Networking Guide for Bloggers: Setting Your Goals and Rules (Part 2)

Networking Guide for Bloggers: Setting Your Goals and Rules (Part 2) | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

For me, there are two things that should be considered as the starting point of a well thought out networking strategy. The headline of this post gives a good hint on what I’m talking about, so let me just say it upfront: start by setting your goals and understanding the basic rules.


Quick note:

Rules For Business Success

Rules For Business Success | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

GoDaddy founder and CEO Bob Parsons has 16 rules for success in business and life in general. If he sells GoDaddy to private equity firms for $2 billion, that’ll make him a billionaire or close to it.

 

Does that give his “business rules” more weight? Maybe.

 

On the other hand, the guy made a creepy videotape of himself killing an elephant and hungry villagers ripping the flesh off it while wearing GoDaddy hats.

 

Does that mean you shouldn’t learn from him? Who knows?

 

What I do know is the guy’s got a big success under his belt and that’s worth something. Personally, I would learn as much as you can from accomplished executives and follow the advice that resonates with you...

The 10 Questions Every Content Creator Must Ask

The 10 Questions Every Content Creator Must Ask | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

There are some things you must get out of every interview.


There is no doubt that you want to get a great quote, pull out an amazing insight or get the person you're covering to say something that they have never said before (I smell exclusive!), but none of that matters if you make a mistake when it comes to the raw facts about who you are featuring. Over the course of my career, I've had the pleasure of being on both sides of the content creation fence: some days I am the person conducting the interview, and on other days, I am the subject matter. I've had countless instances where my name is spelled wrong, my title is wrong, the company I work for is not written correctly or they explain my role inaccurately. In fact, there have been multiple instances where multiple inaccuracies were present. Yes, the old adage, "the only bad press is an obituary," still very much rings true, but all credibility is lost if you don't get the basics right.

The Unwritten Rules of Social Media

The Unwritten Rules of Social Media | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

When you sign on to any social media site, you agree to their terms and conditions, but you should keep two important things in mind: one, you should do your best to adhere to these rules, and two, you should never expect that others will do so. As a member of any online community, and a representative of your brand (either your business or your personal brand) your primary responsibility is to look out for yourself and make sure that you are always cognizant of the rules, both written, and unwritten.

8 Essential Business Rules For Those Who Don't Believe In Rules

8 Essential Business Rules For Those Who Don't Believe In Rules | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

I don’t read a lot of business books. (Actually, I never read them.) But I do read the lists of the best-selling business books. Those lists give you a lot of insight into the current trendy areas for leadership and strategy. That’s a good reason to run in the opposite direction. Fast.


These best-sellers all have jazzy titles like “What Would Lincoln Do” and “The Kindergarten Test: If A Five Year Old Can’t Understand Your Plan, Start Over.”

 

I made all those up, but you get the point. At Conduit, our 7-year-old Israeli startup, we don’t necessarily do things by the book.

 

We offer publishers mobile apps and web apps; social media connectors; toolbars and notification alerts--all designed to give publishers an ongoing presence in the digital lives of their users. Right now, publishers are reaching more than 250 million individual users through our products...

The Rules of Smarter Engagement - Brian Solis

The Rules of Smarter Engagement - Brian Solis | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

To celebrate the release of my new book, The End of Business as Usual, I recently hosted a discussion on behalf of Vocus on how businesses should rethink a marketing-driven social media approach by not just engaging, but activating a market-driven strategy defined by smarter, more meaningful engagement.

 

More than 1,000 people attended the event and while I tried to answer every question, many were left unaddressed because of time constraints. This post tackles some of the recurring questions we received on Twitter.

 

Q1: Whenever I hear about strategies, or when I present myself, I always get the feeling that Lewis Carroll said it best: “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?” “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat...

Important Lessons I’ve Learned As A Leader

Important Lessons I’ve Learned As A Leader | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it
These 12 lessons have helped me grow as a leader and help other aspiring leaders. Leadership is about people and passion. You matter!

 

Many of us have heard the advice from the likes of John Maxwell, Steve Jobs, Stephen Covey, and others. However, sometimes for the rising or aspiring leader it’s practical advice that really makes an impact. We all have times when we miss obvious things we should do as leaders. When faced with difficult situations, there will be an “a-ha” moment when we’re reminded of a simple, yet valuable leadership traits we didn’t exhibit...
