PictureThank A Soldier This Weekend...
From All of US at C8 Consulting
 “While only one day of the year is dedicated solely to honoring our veterans,  Americans must never forget the sacrifices that many of our
fellow countrymen
have made to defend our country and protect our freedoms.”
~Randy Neugebauer
Here's to a Happy & Safe Memorial Day Weekend!


"Enlarge Your Vision of What is Possible" ~ Orin
What is your mountain to climb?  Budget? Time? Staff? Knowledge... The road to greater opportunity begins with a first step...outside of the box.. and embracing a new culture while acknowledging the traditional business models

Recently, a client wanted to know the proper use of #hashtags on Twitter.  Here is a quick reminder from #Target Marketing on the five (5) top rules to follow.  Thought it was worth sharing. 

Came across this nifty little app during cocktails with friends...  Save time, money and an exploding wallet or purse!  Easy to upload  http://keyringapp.com/ and easier to use.  Plus it is more than just a storage device for your loyalty and points cards.  You also get exclusive coupons, discounts and the ability to link to your debit/credit card.  Faster check out too! 

Need CPR to save your Social Media Programs?  Here's one idea to get people talking, sharing and posting.  Use Facebook to highlight your associates, employees and perhaps even vendors/suppliers.  Here are some ideas:

1. Photo albums of your employees in their youth and today - sure to get a reaction!
2. Adorable Pets Album - who can resist that cuddly iguana or lop earred bunny?
3. Music Beats - pics of your employees and what they like to listen to
4. Book Review - show book covers of suggested favorites - and allow comments

Be creative, innovative and different!  Let the unique qualities of your firm and your employees shine.  You'll be surprised what kind of buzz it will create.

Thanks Social Media Examiner and Bryden McGrath for that reminder!
