Insight on Business with Michael Libbie is in re-run status for the next two days. I get to enjoy the hospitality of TSA as I fly to Orlando to do a couple of seminars for the National Tractor Parts Dealer Association on marketing/advertising/branding and listening to consumers. I'll miss you!
However, you can catch loads of information here at Webcast One LIVE all day...everyday.
First off a BIG, "I'm Sorry!" - Yesterday for the first time in months and months we had a major technical issue so we were not able to do our show or a number of others. Our T-1(Internet Line) went down...just...BANG and we were not able to get it back for one or two shows. I am sorry...truly...to our viewers and to my guests from yesterday. We had a rockin' look at how "Humans Have Exited HR". We'll reschedule and do this again...
Don't want to keep you out of the loop...I'll be Tweeting about "Customer Service" as I make my way south. If you would like to follow I'll be @MichaelLibbie and yep, we'll name names...the good, bad and excellent customer service experiences. (Wonder if I'll get groped for some testicular disease?)
Some stories we're following right now:
Ever wonder how "The Media" uses Twitter? - I did. I decided to keep my search based in Iowa and found some interesting things... Here is my story about "Talking To Yourself?" a look at how some "media types" use Twitter. Enjoy and feel free to comment.
Advertisers are looking for you in your...GROUP - With so many people engaged in social networking marketers are directing their eyes on your group. Here is our friend Kristina Knight from BizReports on the topic.
I've been watching some "Help Wanted" ads over the past several weeks - It's too early to tell but I'm seeing the same companies with the same postings week after week...after week. Are they NOT finding the right people? Are they advertising crappy jobs? OR...are they trolling in their own industry hoping somebody might jump ship? Not sure...but with so many excellent people out there looking it's really...odd. What do you think??
I had a conversation with a friend yesterday about Dwolla the online account where you can make financial transactions for $.25 each rather than 2 - 5 percent of the transfer value. He's a smart, savy guy...and wondered "out loud" if they will catch on beyond...Iowa. They have and once business catches wind of how much they can SAVE on...say...a wholesale order of product of $10,000 they just might take their orders to the Web. What do you think???
