Now comes microblogging!!
It's fascinating to see the Internet evolving and how ideas get adopted by the business community for profit or efficiency reasons.

We've already seen the blog concept used to promote companies in every way possible. As we've said in previous articles, blogs can be used as a document management system to promote your company, yourself and to add quality content to your website.

Now we are seeing the phenomenon of microblogging at sites such as Twitter and Jaiku (recently acquired by Google).

Microblogging is just that; tiny blog postings or "tweets" of 100-140 characters. People are using them to quickly jot down thoughts and links to more major items (including their blog!).

Any value for business in microblogging? Who knows? The thing is, lots of people are using them and where people congregate, there is usually money to be made!

What's the fuss about blogs...

Welcome to the October newsletter!

  • Building without surprises
  • If you've every undertaken a building project you'll know there is nothing worse than when you find out you're going to have to pay extra for an 'unexpected development'.

    Located in central Edinburgh and with a core team of tradesmen that have been with them for years, they are just the people to look after your refurb, renovation, extension or new build.

  • Free tips from a marketing master
  • We've recently come across Drayton Bird, the marketing expert who talks simply and practically about how to use marketing successfully.

    And he should know - with 40 years in the business, working with all sorts of companies around the world, he's got a fantastic track record, is a successful author on the subject and was hailed by the legendary David Ogilvy as "knowing more about direct marketing than anyone else in the world."

    In fact his "Commonsense Direct Marketing" - out in 13 languages - has now been the best seller on the subject for 25 years.

    Best of all though, is that you can be emailed 71 of his marketing tips (one every 3-4 days) absolutely free. These are easy-to-read and easy-to-apply tips and views. You will almost certainly see something that has direct relevance to what you do or what you would like to do.

    Soon the tips are going to be incorporated in a new book, so get them and enjoy them free while you still can.
