Giving Thanks If YouWant To Connect Online...

Hello there,

Have you noticed how websites - and online business profiles - are evolving? What used to be static digital brochures is becoming more alive. What was stiff with corporate formality is taking on personality and becoming conversational.

What's fascinating about this evolution is that it acknowledges customers and their needs. It reshapes the expertise a business offers in terms relevant to customers. It's about customers and how we can help them - not as one monolithic corporation, but rather as an organization made up of talented indivuals looking to connect with the people who come across us online. 

When we acknowledge that it's people we are looking to help, we give them thanks - as well as those we've already helped. When we give thanks - as a wise friend recently shared from Dr. Oz - we not only express gratitude, but we also feel better. 

So, by focusing your business online presence on how you can help others, you will reap the benefits of feeling better! You'll also have something else to be grateful for.

What do you think?

I hope you enjoy the resources below. Let me know which you find most helpful.

Intriguing Marketing Resources

I found lots of LinkedIn wisdom in this article from HubSpot titled The Ultimate Cheat Sheet for Mastering LinkedIn. It details 35 tricks for making the most of personal as well as business LinkedIn profiles.

Mark Johnson FAIA, whom I met at Coverings 2012, has put together another compelling presentation on SlideShare. It's titled Pinterest Your Resume and includes ideas for using Pinterest as a business resource.

While you're absorbing Mark's ideas, think how his SlideShare presentation matches up with 10 SlideShare Strategies that Will Boost Your Content’s Value.

Finally, in honor of Thanksgiving, I share with you my very favorite Thanksgiving story from Art Buchwald. Titled "A Turkey Dinner with French Dressing," it has special meaning because my mother is French...

Your Turn!

How are you giving thanks? How is it helping you to connect with customers?

Thanks for reading. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Best,

Christine
