Looking back at our fresh starts & modest changes Fresh Starts & Modest Changes Earlier this month I began a short series of posts and podcasts called "Fresh Starts & Modest Changes." It was meant as an antidote to the pressure that many of us feel to upend our lives with poorly thought-out new year's resolutions. The idea was to get you thinking less about the unlikelihood of success in mounting sudden, ginormous change, and more to suggest some subtle adjustments for making life just a bit more pleasant, productive, and your own. Tweaking as you go, instead of trying to treat your mind like some kind of a microwavable corn dog. We're getting to the end of the month now, so I wanted to wrap up with a few thoughts on the value of small changes, but I'd also love to hear about any of your own fresh starts and modest changes -- particularly hoping you'll share the ways you've had the best success keeping on track with the adjustments you've chosen to make.

3 easy ways to clean up your Twitter account If you use Twitter, you probably love it.

Look Out, Twitter Might Put Your Account "On Notice" Today, by all accounts, managing the massive number of users Twitter has seen flocking to the service has been a challenge for the company's relatively small (but growing) support team. As you can imagine, the number of requests to eliminate spam, stop abusive behavior, or reopen locked out accounts is likely tremendous, and that's not even getting into the challenge of getting one's account verified, a rare privilege for a select few non-celebrities. Practically the only time you see the service's support team pop up is if an account is disabled. It's possible a new process is being put in place to provide a warning to users who have stepped out of line, putting them "on notice".

Look for the label "Google Apps highlights" and subscribe to the series. - Ed. The Google Apps team has had another productive couple of weeks. WalesOnline - News - Wales News - Company told to take down knockers advert A SAUCY advert for a hardware company has been taken down following a complaint from a member of the public. For the past two months, Tricketts Ltd in Merthyr Tydfil has displayed a poster which boldly stated: “We sell big knockers”, accompanied by a photograph of a topless woman with strategically placed door knockers. But the company has been forced to remove the offending poster after a complaint was upheld by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA). Owner John Coles, 43, who has run the company for 18 years, has vowed to contest the decision after saying he was “flabbergasted” by the ruling. “I drove past a similar one a while ago and decided it would be a good idea for us; it’s a really eye-catching poster,” he said. “Since then we have had so many people come in, even councillors, telling us they think it’s really humorous and we have even had letters from people who think it’s a good idea.

Lessons Learned from 21 Case Studies in Conversion Rate Optimization Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO) is the newest darling of Internet Marketers, after all what good is traffic if it doesn’t convert. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending how you look at it), unlike Pay Per click (PPC) marketing, CRO isn’t a game of how much money you can throw. In fact, this field requires as much creativity, as it requires monetary investment. That’s what makes conversion rate optimization a fair arena. Your well-funded, bigger competitors can of course beat you at generating more traffic but they can’t beat you at the conversion rate game (unless you allow them to). Every website has unique conversion goals, so the approach to conversion rate optimization is unique for every website.

Don't Look for Hints of Buzz Demise After Wave's Closure During last fall's debut of Google Wave, which seemed to be a launch of a complicated solution in search of a problem, I was immediately struck by the overwhelming nature of the platform, which inundated me with update after update and parallel conversations all vying for my attention. Not unsurprisingly, I stepped back from the product, as many people did - hoping it would improve in simplicity and utility over time, eventually becoming a product I could use for collaboration and real-time messaging. But that day never came. Like many products, much of Wave ended up being all about itself - as people first were attracted to its novelty, and later, many threads were all about how to best utilize it, with tips and tricks. It was there because it could be, not because it should be.

The five questions small businesses need to ask about social media marketing I’d like to start with an excerpt from a a recent Gregg Morris post. This is an email from one of his associates, expressing frustration at an inability to convince small businesses to engage in social media marketing: Social networking is making zero inroads into any of the businesses (SMBs) we have visited and interest in “mining” those networks is similarly zero. It’s not that they are rejected as future possibilities, but rather that SMBs haven’t time for it, since they sense the costs far exceed the benefits … The facts are the facts – SMBs are still the same as they always were: overworked, scratching for dollars, but now fighting even harder for market share. They are competing not just with local competition but also with online, distant suppliers and, of course, big box retailers.To the point: Joe average – architect, restaurant owner, retail store – are not stupid, nor are they unaware of the need to handle their customers better. 3) Are my customers using the social web?

Facebook, YouTube, Skype, ‘Mad Men’ Style Because it’s Friday; Brazilian ad agency Moma has created the above ’60s style ads for web services Facebook, YouTube and Skype. Part of the “Everything Ages Fast” campaign for Maximidia Seminars, the ads are visually stunning and the copy is eerily evocative (“Skype, The fabulous voice system able to put your family together”). Or maybe that’s just the quirky Portuguese to English translation?
