Lyceum commented on the following stories on BizSugar
Hi Cindy: I am glad to hear that! :) I have been using it as my personalized site for myself and my business, e.g. links to articles I have written, video clips by small business people, and some "lighter note" stuff. I have redirected my Martin.Lindeskog.name site to the Posterous page. I will create a new site / blog as my virtual business card with contact information, blog posts on social media and other things that I am working with. It will be a hub for international small business owners, solo entrepreneurs and sole traders (sole proprietorship). I will give moral and practical support to business minded individuals. The site will be located at www.EgoSoleTrader.com. I will continue to use my Posterous page. It is nice to see many of my business contacts that have started another site with a bit different type of content. You often get a more personal side of the business contact this way. What kind of content do you share on Posterous, Cindy? Do you have any tips and suggestions for Bill? :)"
Cindy: Thanks for your input. I agree with your thoughts on this issue. My home base has been my EGO blog since 2002. Posterous has been great in order to test out a new type of blogging / lifestreaming. Next year I will create a new site that will evolve over time so it could become my main hub for my business activities. I will ask you for some suggestions on the copy and text material, describing my services, my unique value proposition, about page / kudos / mentions / resources, etc."
Anita: Do you think Ohio got a good position at #11? I am bit surprised that New Hampshire ended up (down?) at #33. I have ordered Who's Your City by Richard Florida. This report and the book will be good material for my decision of the future location in the land of opportunity. I am interested to hear from other bisSugar members, giving me suggestions and tips on places for a small business entrepreneur like me! :)"
Cindy, This is smart tip on how to get material for your blog! I will study the incoming search results a bit more in the future. Do you have plenty of image searches to your blog? I have seen an increased amount of this type of search from Google, Yahoo and Bing."
Cindy: Have you seen any "cross-cultural blunders" at LeWeb like last year?! ;) I have the following books on my X-mas list: Who's Your City?: How the Creative Economy Is Making Where to Live the Most Important Decision of Your Life (0465018092) by Richard Florida. The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles (0446691437) by Steven Pressfield. Immigrant, Inc. (0470455713) by Robert Smith. Meditation in a New York Minute: Super Calm for the Super Busy (1591794293) by Mark Thornton."
David, I think you have a very sound approach to social media. I will show this post to an advertising agency that I have been discussing social media with. They are interested in the new media and how to add it to the marketing mix. They want to introduce the idea of conversational marketing to some of their clients. By the way: I will send you an email regarding your last paragraph! ;)"
Tibor Shanto's post piqued my interest with a post title that grabbed my attention due to my interest in the Pareto principle (80/20 rule) and Kaizen (continuous improvement)! ;) I think that the story tells a great way of testing sales people and see if they are reading sales literature and interesting books. I must say that I have been influenced by Tim Sanders's "lovecat" idea in his book, "Love Is The Killer App." In the "Knowledge" section, he is talking about the importance of reading books and you will find a "80/20 book" example."
