Using Twitter to Generate Leads

​Twitter is a top social media platform for marketers. From interacting with customers, to pushing your original content, to generating leads and everything in between, there are many benefits to using Twitter for your business. While having a Twitter profile to interact with current customers and clients and to network with connections is important, there is a lot of potential for Twitter to help grow your business as well.  Lead generation is a huge component of this.

Life or Death Software Development

When people hear the term software developer, they probably don’t think of a career that involves individuals holding people’s lives in their hands.  The reality is though that for some who are writing software, it could mean life or death.  Consider things like autonomous software for Tesla –mess that up and it could mean death. Drug to drug interaction checking –this can also cause death.  There is definitely a difference in writing software for video games vs writing software that flies airplanes. We are going to hope that that is one that absolutely needs to be right.

Social Media Marketing Starts with the Website

We can all agree that a strong social media game plan and presence is important. In order to be effective in marketing your business on social media, however, you have to have a strong landing base. This starts with your company’s website.  How much time, energy, and money did you invest into your website?  Do you have a mobile friendly website? How is the user experience for visitors to your site?

Work Work Work - Life Balance

The work - life balance is a dilemma that plagues everyone in the working world.  It’s the concept of properly prioritizing between "work" (your career) and your "life" (health, leisure, family time, etc).  As a consultant, you are putting in about three times the amount of work vs life.  Why is this? You don’t have one job. You have multiple jobs and clients at once. There are multiple projects you are working on and only one life to balance against it.

How to Properly Ask for a LinkedIn Recommendation

LinkedIn recommendations are like the Yelp reviews of individuals. If you are a business professional, a LinkedIn recommendation is an important aspect of marketing yourself. Employers consult LinkedIn to determine if someone is going to be a good fit in an organization. So, how do you go about receiving influential and effective recommendations?  Some may come organically, but just like with a business, not everyone is going to leave a review. If you’ve had a great experience you want to showcase, or if there is someone who has really seen you excel at a certain task, take the time to ask for a LinkedIn recommendation.

The Value of the Retrospective Meeting

​The retrospective meeting is one that everyone thinks they want, but often times people don’t actually do.  It’s extremely important though, after you do something big, to pull everyone back together and ask, “What worked well? What needs improvement? What should we never do again?” The difficult part to having a retrospective meeting is doing it in a way that really stresses that the point of the meeting is to grow and improve and not to blame.
