1 Thing to Know About Everything at Work

This post contains the single most important thing you need to know (IMHO) about each element of the working world. Here goes:

Arguments. Trying to win every argument is a good way to lose all your friends.

Brainstorming. Even with best intentions, most brainstorming produces only a dull drizzle.

Branding. Brand emerges from the customer’s experience; all branding can do is stick a label it.

Business Books. Most business books consist of 10 pages of content and 190 pages of filler. Mostly, case studies.

Career. If you lack a mental picture of your dream job, there’s zero chance you’ll ever find it.

Commitments. Your reputation is based not on how many commitments you keep but on how few commitments you don’t.

Corporate Culture. Once a company experiences great success, its culture will resist change, even when it absolutely must adapt to survive.

Co-workers. Co-workers enjoy gossip but they respect discretion.

Customers. A single loyal customer is worth a hundred hot sales leads.

LeadFerret Launches Directory of Contacts at Web 2.0 Companies

Back in the mid aughts, Web 2.0 was the “next big thing.” Viewed as both an empty buzz word and the direction the entire internet was heading, Web 2.0. Even now, twenty years after its inception, pinpointing an exact definition is difficult at best. And, in a manner of speaking, that was the point. Web 2.0 continues to represent a paradigm shift in how the internet is used, from how people interact socially to how they do business. The synergy of these two concepts is easier to grasp when one looks at the directory of contacts at Web 2.0 companies that LeadFerret has compiled. Using the social media data provided for many of the Web 2.0 contacts within LeadFerret’s directory demonstrates just how pervasive Web 2.0 is. Using Web 2.0 level methods to market to Web 2.0 companies validates the entire system. It would practically be foolish not to make the most of this directory, which grants access to the most valuable Web 2.0 prospects, with complete information, including email addresses, those ever important social media links and more, making it easier to properly market to the Web 2.0 companies one finds most relevant.
