LinkedIn Groups

June 20, 2008

I don't know how many of you use LinkedIn, but they have groups you can join. I have not yet figured out a use for the groups other than you can contact other members of the group easily. There are now 5 telecom groups (that I know of):

  1. CrossConnects: Telecom Sales Professionals Group
  2. Telecom Agents
  3. Telecom Business Daily
  4. Telecommunications Professionals Network
  5. iTelco

All have the same members MOL. My guess is that so many folks are still trying to figure out how to monetize LI and Facebook.

More Communications Apps

June 27, 2008

BlitzTime takes social networks one step further. One of the downsides to connecting with people on LinkedIn is that you can't easily communicate with them. With BlitzTime you set up a profile, including education, interests, etc., then log in, join an event, or start one of your own - thus able to have a conference call with people you might want to meet.

More Conference calling apps are popping up.

Why Twitter

July 16, 2008

Duct Tape Marketing has a post about the business use for Twitter. I can see why Twitter would work for a conference like it did for SXSW: great way to update attendees; remind people about keynotes and sessions starting; let people comment about what was cool and where they are going (dinner anyone?); etc. (Read article about it here). And that is a good use for Twitter, but what other business uses are there?

August 6, 2008

I dabble in Twitter. I find it very challenging to plow through my various inboxes, blogs, clients, LinkedIn, and to find time to Twit as well. It's just too much noise. (So is doing anything by Committee.

Yammering about Tweet

September 9, 2008

I don't get the whole Twitter thing. Maybe its the folks I am connected to. Most just puke all day. By puke, I mean they just spray out stuff that is usually inconsequential.

Invitations Noise

September 25, 2008

I don't know how many of you are on LinkedIn or Facebook but it has been a strange couple of weeks. Before I left for IT Expo West, I was getting duplicate invites from several people that I did not know. The unusual part was the duplicates. So I replied to each invite asking for information about what list my email address was on.

Deep Dive on Blogging

November 3, 2008

On Wed. night, I am moderating a discussion at the American Marketing Association - Tampa Bay Chapter (New Media SIG) on the Deep Dive into Blogging. 

In a Biz Journal article, the author notes, "It is a new world for business. Embrace the opportunities. Open your mind to a new way of connecting. It is a great way to prosper in any economy."

I say that in today's business world, you have to be connecting with your customers and prospects - even your employees, vendors, and prospective employees.
