Weekend Reading: My fav’s from this week: 8/20/10

Posted by Heather Villa, CMA, MBA, MSM on August 20, 2010 in: Weekend Reading

Do It Right the First Time & Do It With Class – When you don’t give something the proper effort, often the results are not satisfactory. Then you find yourself in the position that you have to do it again. Not doing a task “right the first time” often creates more work.

Having a strategy doesn’t make you social – How do you avoid a social media backlash and better connect with your customers? If you are proactively monitoring your online reputation, and proactively reaching out to customers that have issues, you’ll all but remove any chance of a backlash.

Marketing Checklist: 7 Ways To Prove You Rule – Listed are 7 ways you can offer up the proof needed to close the loop on nearly any sale. From Pedigree to Social Proof this will have you well on your way to being a master of any sale.

Back to School Renewal – As our kids are heading back to school, we finally have time again for ourselves.  Stacey offers some great ideas on how to make the most of the extra time and recharge our Mommy batteries.

When Live is Like a Russian Roulette – Vered offers an  interesting comparison between Russian Roulette and life. The happiest of all are those who manage to focus not on the past (those tend to be depressed and full of regrets) or on the future (those tend to be worried and stressed) but on the present.

Hand Painting Art – Take the time to click on this one.  Totally amazing and worth a few minutes of your day. 🙂

Watching TV: Simple Pleasure or Banal Waste of Time? – A very thought provoking article. I’m not giving up TV myself, but I may be re-evaluating my reason for watching.

Who Told You THAT Was a Good Keyword? – Finding keywords is easy. Finding the right keywords, organizing them into optimizable groups, and determining where and how they get optimized into the site is another story all together.

As always, you can see more of my favorites on HeatherVilla StumbleUpon.

Have a super, wonderful weekend!
