Amazon, Epinions, and Yelp were pioneers of the user feedback and rating movement. A recent “Review Boom” lead to dozens of new feedback platforms, rating scales, and opinion forums. Consumers can’t determine the best source for reliable content, let alone understand how the different rating systems work. To become a trusted-source of information you must know where your voice will be heard. If you leave a review where nobody will see it, does anyone care…Continue

“With an individual liability strategy, the risks can be significant”
Unless you live in the deep wilderness, you’ve noticed that the wireless world is upon us in every facet of our lives. Wireless devices have clearly become the standard mode of communication for both personal and business purposes, as is evidenced by a trip downtown, a trip to the airport, or a trip through your own home.

It is a constant challenge for Twitters users to live in a 140-character world. The elements of a successful tweet are a clear message, audience engagement, and influence expansion. All this must be accomplished in 140-characters or less.

Networking! Everybody's doing it, right? Dashing hither and yon, trying to touch as many other networkers as possible in as short a time as possible. Thrusting business cards into every available hand. Spending 2.4 minutes on each person, while looking around for the next, better opportunity. Rushing around, determined to talk to every single person in the room -- even it's over 100 -- in two hours! Sorry, can't talk to you; I know you, and there are strangers I haven't met…Continue

So you’re checking your inbox and there it is, that old familiar line from someone you may have recently met or conversed with briefly: I’d like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn. The standard message LinkedIn offers its users to contact possible connections, this expression of disinterest has become truly ubiquitous. Yet, if you resort to this option when you want to connect to someone, what you may be saying to the recipient is: “Hey, here’s the effort I’m…Continue

If you're paying your web designer/developer for technical support, you're paying for nothing.

Has your website company actually explained to you in detail what comprises the technical…Continue
