Think through your company’s marketing plan

Have you heard?  Best Buy has printers on sale this week.  General Mills was named one of the Best Companies for Multicultural Women.  You can hear Conversations with Al McFarlane on Tuesdays at 9am.  How do I know? Somebody told somebody and somehow the information found its way through to me… it’s called Marketing, and it can be the primary difference between success and failure in business.  Because effective marketing has such a critical impact on a company’s bottom line, marketing is everyone’s responsibility.  Owners and employees alike, who want to keep the doors open and the income flowing in, can contribute by paying attention to what people see and hear and understand about their organization.

It is evident that the end of the world is fast approaching.” 

Almost three thousand years later, that world hasn’t changed, corruption still abounds, but the world hasn’t ended, either.  Everyone makes mistakes; everyone has moments of less than stellar judgment.


Flex your (political) muscles

November is only six short months away, so the 2012 campaign for the White House is moving full-speed ahead.  Because we live in the miracle of this fantastically dizzying digital age with news and information at our fingertips and coming at us from infinite sources; and because more than 274 million Americans are connected to the Internet, you probably won’t be surprised that we have converged upon the Internet for any and all tidbits surrounding the presidential candidates since the beginning of the year.  Even though Mitt Romney is the presumed Republican nominee, I think it’s fascinating to see which candidates attracted the most visitors to their sites.  Don’t you?  Aw, come on, aren’t you a little curious?
