Jessica Nickel's insight:

These are former students of mine. We all complain about the inactivity of today's youth, but this publishing company they have formed aims to promote literacy in urban neighborhoods. They need to raise $700 dollars so they can exhibit their work at the First  Queens Book Festival. Please help.

If you've always wanted to create a mobile app but didn't know where to start, Launch This Year can help you finally get started. The website is like an interactive workbook and toolkit that takes you from idea to launching your app in the App Store.

Ok. I really love this article and this idea. The problem that many people have, including myself, is that they don't know where to start or what steps to follow to develop an idea that they have. This site takes care of that problem by walking the user through a series of helpful steps in developing their idea. Will it code the app for you?

10 Essential Self-Marketing Skills For Freelancers
Jessica Nickel's insight:

These skills seem really obvious at first, but are important to know for precisely that reason. It is so easy to overlook the obvious in favor of pursuing trends, but this article cuts through trendiness and provides solid information about how freelance writers can engage their audience through important self-marketing techniques. As someone who has done freelance work and non-profit work, I find that it is so easy to get caught up in the doing of the work that we forget that, in order for the work to actually develop into a business, we must be our own best friends and agents.

Tips on How to Integrate Social Media into a WordPress Site - WPHub

Tips on How to Integrate Social Media into a WordPress Site - WPHub | Social Techno Media | Scoop.it
Social media has gotten to a point where it is an essential part of your overall marketing and SEO plan for your WordPress website. Read these must do tips.
Jessica Nickel's insight:

This article comes from a really excellent website. I am not a web designer, but I am a busy entreprenuer, QA Engineer, teacher, and student who manages several websites and social media profiles. I found that this article not only tells you what you can do to improve your social media, but also HOW you can do it. There are many informative links to follow to get exactly what you need to get the job done. For independent beginning wordpress users like myself, these techniques are extremely helpful. I would recommend other articles on this site for even advanced users, and I am sure that I will be scooping from this page often!

Social Media: New Tools For Business Growth | Business 2 Community

Social Media: New Tools For Business Growth | Business 2 Community | Social Techno Media | Scoop.it
Since the industrial age, businesses have learnt to acquire tools that bring mechanical advantage and help achieve more with less effort. Now, the digital age
Jessica Nickel's insight:

A great, informative artile from an equally informative website, this article lays out in detail the top social media tools for growing a business through various means. I like how the author succinctly describes each tool, what it is used for, and how it will benefit your business. I also think that the author does a great job in paring down the resources by bringing a good mix of well known as well as lesser-known tools to the table. Over all, I have discovered that, in order to be the most successful online, it is important for freelancers, entrepreneurs, and social media pros to have total control of as many of the media sites as possible. Image control is critical, and these tools will help anyone do a fine job of managing and cultivating their virtual presence in the business world.

23 things I learnt about blogging in 2012 | Social Techno Media | Scoop.it
With CycleLove approaching its first birthday (and no doubt some teething pains and temper tantrums imminent), it seemed like a sensible time to recap on lessons learned over the course of this year.
Jessica Nickel's insight:

I think it is always interesting to see what people have gained from their experiences starting, growing, and promoting their business in and through social media. I appreciate people who share their difficulties and successes so that we can all take these valuable lessons and apply them to our experience!
