Get Comments, Share Charts and Diagrams via Google Drawings

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

Google Drawings is a quick way to share charts and diagrams with your work team so they can provide instantaneous feedback.  Google again makes working collaboratively a snap! This sure is going to save me time and energy having to print out copies of the charts and diagrams for everyone to review in a meeting.

Three Simple Ways to Green your Marketing Business

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

Three simple ways to green your marketing business: (c/o a BBB seminar I attended today on D.I.Y. Business Greening by Eco-audit.ca). The seminar was packed full of ideas, tips and strategies. Like other Marketers, I am guilty of printing materials out all the time.

1) office recycling in place

2) Print double-sided

3) Reduce document margins

If you’ve got some money to spend, start using Ecofont, it saves you ink http://www.ecofont.com/en.

Microsoft Ignite Event: Client to Cloud

Thursday, April 8th, 2010

Just finished up some work last week at the Client to Cloud Microsoft Energize IT Event. There was a great turnout.

It’s amazing how long the cloud technology has been out for but it is only until now it is starting to get some attention.

I love the way they describe it, from client to cloud 🙂

Big Brands today that sold something else when they first started

Monday, April 5th, 2010

It’s always so inspiring to read the journeys of how businesses got to where they are today, especially the big names.

Who would have thought that Tiffany’s original core business was silverware.

Who would have thought that Nokia started out with the opening of a pulp mill.

These brands still remain at the top of our minds even though they had a rough start thanks to Marketing.

Happy Reading!
