Issue 6, Volume 6
In June of this year I asked you to help me define the future of Words People Read by answering five questions about e-newsletters.
The overwhelming response was two fold:
You have found value in this newsletter (I am so glad!)
You want articles that offer value and instruction that you can put into place immediately.
Fifty-five of you took the time to share comments about the specifics of what you are looking for and so going forward I will take those comments as my instruction for what I'll look for and share with you in each edition.
Thank you again for taking the time to answer the questions and read this newsletter. Your loyalty means a lot!
A Social Media Tool
Here is a new one that I have just started using this month. Check out my page.
Now create your own. About Me.
This is a social site that allows you to create a splash page about you, your career, your company, your products and services with the added benefits of links back to your website and all of your other social media locations. It is free, it is easy and it is one more place on the Internet with information about you! Cool stuff.
Google +1: Valuable or Just one More Site?
Have you signed up for Google + one yet?
I like to think that Google offers valuable products but so far I am struggling to see the value. You can connect with people that are famous and see what they are saying but I can do that on Twitter too.
So what do you think? Is Google +1 of value or just a distracter?
By the way - I just checked - you can't add it to your Hoot Suite
stream so that just nixed it for me!
