Hi there, I worked for a Fortune 500 years ago. I left in 2005 and they had a wonderful volunteering programme in DFW area, even back then. I have a relative who works in another Fortune 500 company and she used to volunteer in schools and herself and her colleagues just loved it. They really got behind the volunteering and the company itself. I've seen it in action and you're right - it does work. HR in all organisations would be advised to look at this as a method of engaging with employees. Good article - and thanks for sharing on bizsugar.com (That's where I found you!). Take care, Denise"
Hi Steve, I loved this article. It is there in black and white what help us entrepreneurs on a daily basis. As a marketing & copywriting professional who helps others, you are so right when you say that help is all around. And sometimes you just need a friendly ear from a fellow entrepreneur who shares your fears and excitements. Entrepreneurial networking groups are great for that support. Take care, Denise "
I love your points that you've made Allison. I have a blog and when I put effort and time into it, then it reaps its own rewards. Sometimes you can give away as much information as you know but the reader, with all the will in the world, just can't do it themselves. Reading your blog can give them the confidence to call you up and give you the job/project. Thanks for your insights. Take care, Denise "
Hi Amanda, What really useful tips you have. I've thought about copying or scraping but that's as much as I've done. Thought about it. I'm going to now re-look at doing something about it. Thanks for these tips. Something that all of us bloggers should be aware of. You've given me the kick start that I need. Take care, Denise "
Hi there, Great post. I can't help thinking that you are covering the subject of marketing rather than just focusing on your customers. But then again, the two are so entwined, aren't they? Indeed customers are where marketing should start - understanding who your customers are, how they buy and how can you influence them to purchase with you rather than your competitors. Once you know this, the communication element becomes easier. Getting good at marketing, in it's entirety, is the single best way to grow a business. Thanks for your article. Take care Denise"
I've been reading quite a lot of articles recently Jenny and I can honestly say that the manners which you describe are in short supply. My grandmother and mum will always say that it costs nothing to be nice. A simple thank you, or a little thought like you say in your third point - these cost nothing. And while I sometimes disagree with someone and even if I think they are an idiot, I will never say it. It's better to be the bigger person really for all concerned. I don't know why people are hurtful in the comments they leave on SM sites. Thanks for the lovely reminder. Take care, Denise "
Good explanation of the importance of breakeven analysis. I partcularly like your second last paragraph as that will help new businesses to identify what needs to be included when they began to do a breakeven analysis. Thanks for sharing on Bizsugar.com Take care, Denise "
Hi Andreea, What a great article. Full of information for a newbie to Pinterest like myself. It’s always good to know the fine print but so few take the time to read it so great that you did. I nearly panicked when I read your point about getting permission re photos. I saw a beautiful pair of Valentino shoes and that was my first pin. But I don’t think Valentino will come after me so panic over! I’m heading over to Pinterest to follow you now. Thanks for putting your article on bizsugar.com as that’s how I found you! Take care, Denise "
Hi there, A great article about how to go about blogging and why you should blog. One thing that I would like to say is that blogging takes time - it takes time to write, so a content plan or schedule should be created. It's not an easy answer to getting more traffic to your site. Another point I'd add to your article is the cultural differences on commenting between different nations. In the US, a lot of people will read and comment; while in Europe, people will read but are less likely to comment. It is changing but it often leads to frustration for new bloggers. They can't understand why there is little commenting when they've spent so much time researching, writing and editing a blog. And I saw this on bizsugar.com which is a great site to expand your blog readership! Take care, Denise "
