LeadFerret Launches a Directory of MySQL Experts

Many computer programs, including web-based programs like blogs, photo galleries and content management systems need to be able to store and retrieve data. Programs that want the database software to handle the low-level work of managing data simply use that language to send it instructions. To make it easy for other programs to access data through them, most database software supports a computer language called “SQL” (usually pronounced as “sequel”). SQL was specially designed for such a purpose. There are many databases that support the use of SQL to access their data, among them MySQL and PostgreSQL. In other words, MySQL is just the brand of one database software, one of many. While it may be one of many, though, MySQL is the world’s second most widely used open-source relational database management system.

This directory contains contact information for the individuals within, including email addresses, social media links and more. Using this directory as a starting point for a marketing campaign can help one avoid targeting people who do not have the skills one is looking for.

Unix Experts Directory Published by LeadFerret

When the topic of laughable computer errors in movies comes up, most tech savvy people will quickly bring up the scene in Jurassic Park where Lex Murphy finds a computer displaying the interface. She exclaims “It’s a UNIX system! I know this!” and proceeds to restart the building’s access control system, locking the laboratory’s doors. Lex is actually using a program called fsn. Unix is a stable, multi-user, multi-tasking operating system for servers, desktops, laptops, and smartphones. Both Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android are variations of the basic Unix operating system. This means that almost a fifth of the earth’s adult population has a Unix box in their pocket. The most common version of Unix (bearing certification) is Apple’s OS X, while Linux is the most popular non-certified workalike.

To put it simply, Unix is everywhere. The ability to understand such a useful and pervasive OS is not only useful, but downright necessary in some industries. Unfortunately, it’s not always possible to know, based on a person’s title or what company they work for, if a person is familiar with Unix, let alone if they have expertise in it. Thankfully, LeadFerret, the newly funded free b2b data site, regularly compiles and publishes targeted directories of business professionals who excel at specific programs and operating systems. These directories contain contact information for the individuals within, including email addresses, social media links and more. Today, LeadFerret published their latest of these types of highly targeted directories, one of professionals who have been identified as Unix experts. This directory would be an excellent starting point for a marketing campaign that either targets Unix expertise specifically, or tech savvy professionals in general.

LeadFerret Released Microsoft PowerPoint Experts Directory

Today, according to Microsoft.com, PowerPoint has close to a 95% market share and is installed in more than one billion computers. PowerPoint remains one of the most useful tools any one can use to inform, entertain and persuade other people. But when used improperly, either by someone who lacks the basic skills or by someone who doesn’t know how to effectively use it based on the desired end result, it can trigger mass frustration and fatigue in whatever environment it’s being used in. The skills needed to create good PowerPoint presentations—strong design, appropriate branding, concise content, well-placed visuals, and proofread copy—are the same skills that make or break a digital marketing campaign.

LeadFerret Releases a Directory of Copywriting Experts

“Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?” A poorly written advertisement or marketing piece can be a death knell for that campaign. From merely making something overly complicated to rendering something unintelligible, poorly written copy is one of the biggest mistakes a campaign can make. While being able to string sentences together coherently may seem like a basic business skill, there’s a reason “effective communicator” appears on basically every job posting. From taking a complex concept and rendering it understandable to the layman to organizing the flow of an idea to capturing a concept in a verbally interesting manner to merely preventing grammatical errors, the skills of good copy writer are ones not typically held by the average person.

Not every company is in the position to employ people who do nothing but edit copy. For this reason, outside of industries that pedal the written word, those who hold the skill typically fall under another job title. Thus, it can be difficult to properly target people who excel at copywriting, because up until now the skillset was not one accessible to people running marketing campaigns, unless they limited themselves to specific titles. LeadFerret, the free b2b data site, has combed through their directory of over seventeen million records and compiled a directory of the professionals who consider themselves to be experts when it comes to copywriting. LeadFerret users will be able to make the most of this directory, by having access to the most valuable prospects, with complete information, including email addresses, social media links and more, making it easier to develop targeted, accurate marketing campaigns.
