When I was a kid and would sit in front of the TV for hours, then complain that there was nothing on, my mother would always say “Go read something.” Great advice!
Here are a few suggestions for the weekend…
The Secret to Feeding Your Family With A Blog, Problogger
How Evernote Works For Moms, Business, and Everything in Between, Evernote
The Fred Wilson School of Blogging, A VC Fred Wilson
A Comprehensive Post on SEO, Problogger
A Tool to Help Business Owners Struggling With Social Media, You’re The Boss, The New York Times
Social Media ROI: Managing and Measuring Social Media Efforts in Your Organization, Olivier Blanchard
I literally just got this book and have started it. The premise seems very interesting, that there are ways to begin to measure the return that social media gives your company.
If you’ve read it, what did you think–the reviews are a bit mixed. I got it on Kindle for $9.99. It’s also on iBooks, yet for some strange reason, it’s literally twice as much. When I’ve read it all, I will offer a much more comprehensive review, as this is an important topic for most business owners, right now.
Have a great weekend everyone!
