Every so often when I’m tweeting or emailing, I’ll think: Should I really be writing so much?
I tend to get carried away. And for the times that I do, it sure would be nice to know if all this extra typing is hurting or helping my cause. I want to stand out on social media, but I want to do it in the right way.
Curious, I dug around and found some answers for the ideal lengths of tweets and titles and everything in between. Many of these could have been answered with “it depends,” but where’s the fun in that?
Solid research exists to show the value of writing, tweeting, and posting at certain lengths. We can learn a lot from scientific social media guidelines like these. Here’s the best of what I found.
At Stryde, we strive to connect with all facets of our digital marketing community. Accordingly, we’ve compiled a list of who we consider to be the Top 50 Content Marketing experts.

Most job seekers are very familiar with job related search engines such as Monster or Indeed or, among intel professionals, sites such as USAJobs. One of the most effective and efficient websites for finding a job, however, is LinkedIn, and it is surprising how many job hunters fail to take advantage of its powerful tools for searching and applying for intel related jobs.
This list is purely subjective, on one hand. On the other hand, I really do think that these are the best free business apps because I’ve looked at other lists and they all come with usual suspects, like Evernote, Dropbox or Skype. How very enlightening. NOT. So here is my version.
I hearby declare Bitrix24 the best free business app that you probably don’t know about. In fact, Bitrix24 is 35+ business tools inside a single platform – CRM, project management, employee management, call center, virtual office, cloud call center, document management, invoicing, email marketing and much more. There are three things that Bitrix24 does exceptionally well. First is CRM and client management. Second, collaboration, planning and project management. Third, human resources information system. One review called Bitrix24 ‘business management platform and I think that’s the best description for it. Or you can think of Bitrix24 as Salesforce+Skype+Dropbox+Basecamp in one. Totally free for 12 users. Available for iOS, Android, Web, Unix, Linux, Windows and MacOS.
Qwirl is a bit difficult to explain, if you never tried it. Essentially, it turns any business document into an interactive webpage. Think of Qwirl as free quotes and proposal software. Or a way to create beautiful presentations for your clients. Or reports for investors. That’s Qwirl. Founded by ex-Googlers, this service has all the chances to become the next Prezi.
3. Wave Accounting
I wish every service would have pricing page like WaveApps. The service is absolutely and totally free (and it’s a very powerful accounting platform). It’s especially great at scanning receipts, which is done by simply using your mobile phone camera once you install the app called Receipts by Wave. Unlike Expensify which handles only expenses, as the name implies, Wave Accounting can be used as a payroll and invoicing solution.
Bizagi is a free business process modeler solution used by more than 500,000 users worldwide.

Granted not very many smaller businesses think about processes, standards and procedures, but if you are ready to grow, definitely give Bizagi a try.
When I go to Disneyland, I race to the famous rides first: Splash Mountain, Matterhorn Bobsleds, and Indiana Jones. They're the biggest and best. But there are many attractions I miss in my sprint for the headliners.

Feldman is a "creative thinker," one of the key entrepreneurial strengths identified by significant new research into entrepreneurship. Over five years, Gallup, the global research and consulting firm, studied more than 4,000 founders to understand the talents that foster business creation and growth, and determined the 10 most significant. The organization then created an online assessment tool to measure those talents in individuals. The tool is the latest iteration of Gallup's very popular StrengthsFinder methodology, introduced by Marcus Buckingham and Donald O. Clifton in their 2001 best-selling book, Now, Discover Your Strengths.
