Disrupting From Within: Lessons in Business Innovation

Disrupting From Within: Lessons in Business Innovation | Web Side Story | Scoop.it

As Chief MagClouder I know first hand that starting a new business inside an existing, well-established, large and profitable company can be just as challenging as launching an enterprise all on your own. Especially if your idea is a disruptive one – and one that requires time to grow before it adds a noticeable boost to your company’s overall bottom line.

 

In Innovator’s Dilemma, author and leading business thinker Clayton Christensen is spot on with his observation: Traditional companies are wary of pursuing new products and services that will initially have smaller target markets with unproven business models.

 

Why invest in something new that will result in a smaller return (at least initially) when you can continue cultivating larger and much better-understood markets based on your existing business proposition?

The answers vary, but the one that strikes a chord with us is simply this: If you don’t disrupt your own business, someone else will.

Seth's Blog: You don't have to pander

Seth's Blog: You don't have to pander | Web Side Story | Scoop.it

Merely giving the people what they want is a shortcut to banality, mediocrity and invisibility. The agency that gives its clients exactly what they think they want never deserves to win Agency of the Year, and worse, is rarely seen as the leader in the field, the trusted advisor that is smart enough to know what the client ought to want instead. They certainly can't charge more or hire better team members.

Tools for Following, Unfollowing and Managing Lists on Twitter

Tools for Following, Unfollowing and Managing Lists on Twitter | Web Side Story | Scoop.it

It’s been a while since SocialTimes did a round-up of the various tools that helped users manage their Twitter accounts by finding who to follow, following new people, unfollowing many people at once and organizing groups of users they follow into lists.

Since our last round-up, Twitter has restricted use of its API significantly, causing several tools to shut down. No longer functional areUntweeps, Just Unfollow, Twit Cleaner, Who Follows Whom and Tweet Effect. Tweeter Karma is still functional but has had to remove its bulk unfollow tools.

5 Rules of Social Media Optimization (SMO)

5 Rules of Social Media Optimization (SMO) | Web Side Story | Scoop.it

For years now, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for websites has been honed into a fine art with entire companies devoting considerable effort to defining best practices and touting the value of SEO for raising a site's performance on organic search listings.  While I believe in the power of SEO, there is a new offering we have started providing to clients which we call Social Media Optimization (SMO).  The concept behind SMO is simple: implement changes to optimize a site so that it is more easily linked to, more highly visible in social media searches on custom search engines (such as Technorati), and more frequently included in relevant posts on blogs, podcasts and vlogs.  Here are 5 rules we use to help guide our thinking with conducting an SMO for a client's website

A Toronto-based media website Newsana is opening public beta testing today; it is a social platform for news junkies that curates the highest quality content possible, as voted on by its users.

 

From "FAQ" page:

"Newsana is an community of passionate people who are dedicated to finding and discussing quality news and ideas from around the world. Our members share and vote on their favourite stories which determines the Top 5 Essential Stories of the day from a variety of topics.

 

It’s not new to have a community based on finding and sharing news, but only Newsana creates a community for quality minds to share quality content.


This is done by:

- Filtering out the noise. We provide members with an easy guide to the Top 5 Essential Stories per topic, not a shotgun blast of information that’s impossible to keep up with.

- Higher standards. We don’t have an open door policy; our members must apply and show they are passionate about making the Internet a better place.

 

By focusing our activity on finding Top 5 Essential Stories in any given topic, we’re bringing much-needed context, and smart conversation, to the often chaotic online news landscape.

 

In order to maintain that quality and make sure our community standards are upheld, we require that everyone who pitches a story is a Newsana member..."

November's focus for Soical Biz is IMAGES (following the focus on Pinterest in October). There are some really helpful free tools available to help any entrepreneur, image-challenged or not, make an impact at image hungry social sites e.g. Pinterest, Facebook and Google+. There's no doubt images draw attention and drive visibility and traffic.

Le compte twitter n’appartient ni au salarié, ni à son employeur, puisqu’il est la propriété de Twitter. Selon les conditions générales d’utilisation du service Twitter, le tweet  appartient à l’utilisateur du compte à partir duquel il a été posté.

Le fait qu’un tweet ou message ait été émis par le salarié sur son lieu de travail et pendant ses horaires de travail ne sont pas des critères  suffisants pour considérer qu’ils relèveraient automatiquement de la vie professionnelle du salarié.
