I’d Rather Be Lucky Than Good – Todd Youngblood's "SPE" Blog"Hi Todd, I don't think you should beat yourself up too much about not thinking up this valuable advice yourself. Stumbling upon things is another phrase for experience. That's worth way more to me than a big idea. I sincerely doubt it was luck unless you believe in this definition: When opportunity and hard work collide. Nice post. "
A Time-Zone Converter: An Essential Global Business Tool"Hi Yoni, You can tell from my business name I have clients all over the world. An online time zone converter is an essential tool for my business. It’s especially useful for pesky countries like Australia where some of the country has daylight savings, some of it doesn’t, and none of the states start and end the program on the same date. I like the World Clock Meeting Planner, too. http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/meeting.html Reply "
Does Blogging Quantity Decrease Quality?"Hi Pat, As a fellow blogger, I understand your dilemma. However, I can't help thinking that everything old is new again. Writing a blog is a lot like being a newspaper columnist from the age when everyone read at least one daily newspaper, in print. Even the best columnist struggled to put a column out every day. One thing was certain, they had to meet deadline interesting or not. The real question here is what do you want from your blog? Is it there to build authority and make you a recognized resource? Or, are you blogging as part of your sales and lead generation cycle? The reason I ask is that if you're simply building authority, I think it's probably better to slip a deadline than regularly produce uninspiring work. If your goal is of a commercial nature, you'd better stick to that schedule. Also, how many readers do you have? The huge bloggers like Problogger's Darren Rowse have so many readers he would lose authority if he didn't have a strict schedule. That's when discipline is really a vital factor to blogging. I have two suggestions. The old daily columnists had tricks to help them make deadline. I took a page out of their book and developed a BRIEF format for times when I'm having difficulty getting my post out. My BRIEF posts are little nuggets of information in 200 words or less. I can whip one up pretty quickly. The other thing to do is to consider guest posts. The top guys do it all the time. My last piece of advice is to consider the criticism you received from your reader a gift. While it's nice to get compliments, we learn best from constructive advice on what needs to change. Keep at it!"
Two Rules For Using Sales Metrics Effectively"Hi Anthony, I love this sentence in your post, "There shouldn’t ever be a sales call made without an intended outcome that moves you towards a deal." So many sales managers get hung up on the wrong metric and force people to make calls. As a result, sales people are meeting for the sake of meeting even when they know there's no point to it. That, in turn, feeds the fire against salesmen in general. Nice post. Sarah"
