What online tools have helped you in marketing? Bonus if they're free

Just curious what you guys have found useful to use? and why?I tend to use a lot of Google tools, analytic, trends, ad words, to monitor our SEO progressSEMrush was nice to do a competitor analysis but they just offer a quick trial. Slideshare has been nice with making it easy for everyone to see power point presentations. plus, it's free. submitted by dazdnconfzd to marketing

If Moz.com is the "bible of SEO"... What's the bible of Facebook?

Hi there,What are the best Facebook Marketing/Advertising resources you know about? I'm originally from the SEO/SEA world, so I know where to look for SEO-related information. But where do I get detailed literature/blog posts/articles about Facebook Marketing?Most of the stuff I've read I don't really trust. It's either from a shady blog or completely outdated.What I'm looking for is the more technical parts of it all: how to structure a FB Ad account, best practices for ad copy, targeting, analytics, case studies and so on. I'd really appreciate your help guys and gals :)Edit: here. this is the kind of stuff I'd like to learn submitted by whiskyncoke to socialmedia

Education

Degree name (spelled out), major - School Name, City, State (date - rarely)

Certification

Name of certification, certifying entity, date (usually)

Formatting your resume in such a manner ensures readability by the parsing software, that's the software that recognizes what it's been told to look for (as in above example) and grabs the content underneath those words, and then pastes them into the applicant tracking system - that's the company's record for you, essentially.

When the recruiter goes to sort through the data - everyone's resume contents, but only the stuff that go…

The machine, which dispenses cupcakes for $3.75-a-pop, is stocked with fresh cupcakes regularly until 2 a.m. and restocked again at 9 a.m., which is convenient for anyone struck with a confection craving after one too many Buds at Subway Inn. The ATMs have already made a splash at Sprinkles locations in Chicago, Dallas, Atlanta and Beverly Hills, where the ATM was born. "In L.A., our biggest fan base is from UCLA or USC," Vineet Chaplot, Sprinkless VP of International Operations, told us. "There are massive lines until 2 a.m. Its a good pick-me-up during finals."

Chaplot also noted that customers like the ATM, which offers cupcakes at the same price as the ones in-store, because they can avoid waiting at the cash register inside the bakery, which may appeal to legions of line-wary New Yorkers. And it seemed to be a hit when we stopped by this morning, with as many as 10 people gawking at the machine by 11 a.m.

The left turn is the key here. Zaharie Ahmad Shah was a very experienced senior captain with 18,000 hours of flight time.
We old pilots were drilled to know what is the closest airport of safe harbor while in cruise.
Airports behind us, airports abeam us, and airports ahead of us.
They’re always in our head. Always.
If something happens, you don’t want to be thinking about what are you going to do–you already know what you are going to do.

When I saw that left turn with a direct heading, I instinctively knew he was heading for an airport.
He was taking a direct route to Palau Langkawi, a 13,000-foot airstrip with an approach over water and no obstacles.
The captain did not turn back to Kuala Lampur because he knew he had 8,000-foot ridges to cross.
He knew the terrain was friendlier toward Langkawi, which also was closer.

On teaching people a lesson

On teaching people a lessonYou’re actually not teaching them a lesson, because the people who most need to learn a lesson haven’t, and won’t. What you’re actually doing is diverting yourself from your path as well as ruining your day in a quixotic quest for fairness, fairness you’re unlikely to find.
Sure, you can shut someone down, excoriate them, sue them or refuse to let them win, but odds are they’re just going to go…View On WordPress

Is your place too small for a compost bin? Try Sprout Bin.

via Grand St. Sprout, unlike other compost bins, wasn’t designed with large-scale composting in mind. Rather, we envision it being used to collect scraps in the kitchen, the living room as a pot, and harvest the potential trash output that comes out of a modern lifestyle.

Sprout, unlike other compost bins, wasn’t designed with large-scale composting in mind. Rather, we envision it being used to collect scraps in the kitchen, the living room as a pot, and harvest the potential trash output that comes out of a modern lifestyle. We see it being used in an apartment, a house, a dorm. Not a farm.

The Five Stages of Change you go through...

When two psychologists, Carlo DiClemente and James O. Prochaska, studied people who were trying to quit smoking, they discovered five stages that can be used to assess a person’s readiness to make change. Their ideas about the stages of change have been applied to people who are creating a variety of changes in their lives, whether they are looking to establish new behavior or extinguish old habits.

1. Precontemplation – If you’re precontemplative, you won’t recognize any need to change. Other people may express concerns, but you’ll deny that a problem exists. Unless someone raises your awareness of the problem, you likely won’t choose to do anything differently. For example, a doctor hoping to get a precontemplative person to consider developing an exercise routine could provide education about the health risks associated with inactivity. Explaining the potential consequences of staying the same could help move a person into the next stage.

2. Contemplation – When you’re in stage two, …
