Eco-innovation: The Next Business Megatrend Corporate sustainability is gathering momentum in North America. Companies like Walmart and GE are indisputably proving the business case for efficiency with an environmental slant, and unprecedented numbers of corporations are jumping on the eco-efficiency bandwagon. Although it is still early days, indicators are that this trend could become a megatrend, influencing not only our economy, but our perspective on how companies should behave. As eco-efficiency gathers steam, however, we are seeing signs of another trend on the horizon. Eco-innovation is, by definition, an application of innovation to sustainable development. The two might be considered as evolutionary stages of corporate sustainability. You might also view the two as linear vs. lateral thinking. Finally, you might look at eco-efficiency as a template for savings, and eco-innovation as a route to strong brand growth. Two cases for eco-innovation Domtar is North America's largest supplier of uncoated paper. The result?

I Will Never Hire a “Social Media Expert,” and Neither Should You  I WILL NEVER HIRE A "SOCIAL MEDIA EXPERT," AND NEITHER SHOULD YOU2 years ago I was going to call this article “All “Social Media Experts” need to go die in a fire,” but I figured I should be nicer than that. But my title stands. No business in the world should want a “Social Media Expert” on their team. Being an expert in Social Media is like being an expert at taking the bread out of the refrigerator. Social Media is just another facet of marketing and customer service. bunny ©jimbenton.com We’re making the same mistakes that we made during the dotcom era, where everyone thought that just adding the term .com to your corporate logo made you instantly credible. Ready for the ultimate kicker? “It’s not about building a website anymore! Will you please shut up before you make me vomit on your shoes? It’s About Transparency. It’s About Relevance. It’s About Brevity. Finally, it’s about knowing your customer, and making sure your customer thinks of you first. Social media is not “cool.”

L'ACFCI enquête sur le développement durable au sein des PME/PMI A l'occasion des 8e rencontres nationales environnement et développement durable des CCI, l'ACFCI a présenté les résultats d'une enquête consacrée aux motivations, attentes et avis des PME/PMI déjà engagées dans une démarche développement durable. Le développement durable (DD) ou la responsabilité sociétale de l'entreprise (RSE) interpelle les sociétés. Si les très grandes entreprises commencent à bien l'intégré, les PME/PMI restent dubitatives sur l'intérêt de ce type de démarche. L'Assemblée des Chambres Françaises de Commerce et d'Industrie (ACFCI) a donc voulu savoir ce qu'en pensaient les chefs d'entreprises qui s'y sont engagés et le regard qu'ils portaient sur la démarche. Pour cela, elle a mené une enquête auprès d'une centaine de dirigeants ou de responsables QHSE de PME/PMI ayant engagé une démarche RSE/DD depuis plus de six mois. Cependant, 85 % des interrogés ont reconnu rencontrer des freins ou des difficultés dans la mise en oeuvre de la démarche.

How to Record Vocals in your Home or Project Studio by Rich the TweakMeister part 1 part 2 part 3 The Bell rings again. The Tweak briskly enters the classroom armed with coffee and his box of manuals. Some don't wait a second before shouting out newbie questions Tweak sighs, looks around the class and mutters, "Too many new tweaks here". Tweak slams down the coffee cup. Alright, I'll let you dudes stay, but none of those "What's the best compressor for Fruity Loops" OK? Overview: It seems easy; you just get some lines of words into an audio track and tweak it down. Part I: The Recording Process The most common mistake is recording vocals too loud or too soft. The main goal to recording a solid vocal is to get all of the performance. One solution to this madness is to use a compressor in the chain after the preamp. The other solution is to record at such a low level the highest peak will never break through the roof. Tweak smiles. Microphone sensitivity The more dynamic (louder) the vocalist, the less sensitive the mic needs to be. OK, Mr.

Lessons in Link Building: Diversify Your Portfolio | The Results People If you’ve arrived here via organic search looking for stock tips – you’re definitely in the wrong place. That’s some relevancy algorithm you’ve got there, Mr. Gekko. Regardless, there are several similarities between the grinds of link building and the monotony of day trading that quickly “jump” to mind. Neither are ever easy when done well. I’m well aware that last bullet is in bad taste… so apologies right out of the window gate. Gurus, Ninjas and Warlocks, Oh My! Including the word “Lesson” in the title of this post may seem a little pretentious. People sometimes refer to the 1990s as the “Wild West” of search marketing – but I’d like to suggest the stagecoach hasn’t even left Tombstone yet. Creativity is Crucial Not to be confused with creative (although content-based link building is the best kind, IMHO) creativity in this case refers to one’s ability to see link opportunities where most (specifically your client’s competition) cannot. If it seems lazy or low-quality, it is.

How to Get an Influencer's Attention » Techipedia | Tamar Weinbe Influence is everywhere, but it’s up to you to spot it. As information flow is infinite, many find that it is of utmost importance to capture the attention of the select few who serve as influencers — these are the people who can actually stop their followers in their tracks to help spread your message. Perhaps this might serve as the start of a real relationship. I contacted a number of influencers to see what grabs their attention. Craig Newmark Craig Newmark is the San Francisco-based founder of the nearly 15-year-old extremely successful classifieds site Craigslist. For me, it’s just asking, via email, Twitter, or Facebook. Seth Godin Seth Godin is the bestselling author of numerous books, including his latest, Linchpin. PR people shouldn’t try to get my attention.Readers with something to say should email me.Marketers should make great products that loyal readers or long-time friends or trusted colleagues choose to tell me about!

C'est pas mon idée ! La prochaine évolution industrielle How Can I Set Up a Home Recording Studio on the Cheap? also, keep in mind that not everyone needs an audio interface. if you are only recording one track at a time or are recording more than one track but are fine with mixing it as you record you can use a much cheaper and oodles simpler analog mixing board/mixer. i struggled for over a year with a USB audio interface box i bought for home recording and it was ALWAYS a hassle - either really high latency, dropped sections, or it would take 15-20 minutes of fiddling with system prefs and settings in software to get it to work right. i finally went to my local music store and picked up a behringer analog mixer for $49 which has 8-Inputs (2 mic, 2 stereo, 1 stereo tape/CD), builtin EQ, effects send/receive, and the mic jacks have phantom power and the line inputs work great for electric instruments, a headphone out and I use an RCA-to-mini-1/8th-stereo plug to connect directly into the mic jack on my mac mini. It's simple, always works, and has real knobs and buttons.

How to Charge for Social Media Services Know your value! I've been through it myself. For New Social Media Managers starting out in the industry it can be difficult to work out how to price your services. OK, the industry isn't as established as SEO yet, but how much are companies willing to pay for Search Engine Optimisation? But the tables are turning in 2012... Now is the time for Social Media Agencies and Freelance SM Managers. 1. Simply by offering nicely packed services in "Basic", "Standard" and "Premium" Packages makes it easy for the less decisive client but the main advantage is that you keep your service fixed to a particular set of activities. 2. This is a favourite of the businesses that are brand new to Social Media. 3. A great proportion of clients want bespoke services. Once you have the right info, you can knock their socks off with a killer proposal and really build some value into it. 4. Ok, so what is a "Bolt On"?
