Ok so the dust settles on some crazy posts that were rattling in my head this week and then poof, you have to wake up and keep going. Yesterday consisted of a killer pitch for a very large SEO project in which the client said afterward that they had never received such a detailed proposal before, and yet… that’s the way all of my proposals are. I was taught well.
That’s all good, but I have more important things for you at the moment, and that’s a list of valuable social media links, posts and sites that will help you do what you do, better. So let’s get to it.
1) I don’t know who turned me onto this but I love the simplicity of Plancast
2) I’ve been talking about Yourversion for awhile now, it’s essentially your version of the news, posts and stories that interest you. I know, not that big a deal right? Well just check out how the information is presented to you.
3) I came across this post of 35 Great Social Media Infographics and I like it for 2 reasons. 1 is that the visuals are great but 2, the posts behind the visual representation are just as good.
4) You will absolutely dig this. Make a thank you movie
5) If you have not seen or heard about this yet, it’s pretty cool. It’s essentially a social media policy tool. You can build an internal social media policy in 12 easy questions. It’s a good start.
6) Jeremiah Owyang, from the Altimeter Group put out a nice report on 18 Use Cases for Social CRM that’s worth a read for those of you playing in the social CRM space. If you don’t play in the space, you need to read this anyway, because it impacts the way you’re going to deal with your prospects and clients, especially the enterprise ones on the whys and what fors of Social CRM.
7) Amplicate collects similar opinions in one place; making them more likely to be found by people and companies. Kinda fun.
8. When I tweeted about this my tweet essentially said that my faith in the coolness and greatness of UGC has been restored. Watch this one year walk/beard grow time lapse and smile when it’s done.
9) This little site/tool certainly has potential. Convert PSD’s to WordPress with Divine, though I have yet to play around with it. Let me know if you do.
10) There are so many great sound bites in this article in the New York Times about branding and the “me” economy. Just an absolute great read.
