Teux Deux: Planning for greatness

Teux Deux task list managerGood marketing takes planning. And good planning takes knowing all the different tasks you need to do and then systematically getting them done.

For most of us, this involves creating a to-do list. I used to write my to-do lists on a napkin which was great until someone accidentally used it to clean up a soda spill.

MarketingCharts Help with Internet Research

hitwise-2009-september-print-media-websitesIf you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know that we use a lot of statistics and facts to present compelling cases for all manner of arguments regarding Internet marketing.

Of course, we don’t make that data up. No, we use sources such as eMarketer, MarketingProfs and other research entities that compile information that allow us to draw conclusions and provide our two cents on various topics on advertising and marketing across channels but especially online.

Unless you’re a subscriber to these services, however, you may not have access to all the information they hold. Information that can help you when planning your own marketing campaigns or campaigns for clients.

A great resource that we’ve found – which is available to everyone – is MarketingCharts, charts and data for marketers in Web and Excel formats.

MIT’s Pattie Maes Talks ‘Sixth Sense’

SixthSenseWe only need four syllables to describe the technology demonstrated by Pattie Maes, associate professor in MIT’s Program in Media Arts and Sciences, at last week’s TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) conference: IN-CRED-I-BLE!

Maes introduced a yet-unnamed product that, since its demo last week, has created a lot of buzz in the tech world for its far-reaching capabilities.

This wearable device, which Maes refers to as a “sixth sense,” contains a projector that paves the way for profound interaction with our environment. When we saw it, we immediately thought “Minority Report.” You remember the futuristic Tom Cruise/Colin Farrell sci-fi thriller where they never touched the computer, but rather manipulated the screens by simply moving their fingers in the air. Well, it’s here – and it’s beyond exciting!

(We can’t even do this invention justice in our description of it, so be sure to watch the video after the jump.)

More Global Internet Statistics Coming Your Way

StatCounter recently (march 3rd, 2009) launched a new “GlobalStats” site, making all of their aggregated internet usage stats available for public consumption. This is not the first of its kind, but StatCounter’s contribution is a good one.

Statistics on internet usage consistently rate among the highest read posts on HiringTheInternet and are often searched for.  We like ’em too.  The more services provide thiskind of information, the better we’ll be able to accurately assess the use of the Internet.

The interface is clean and easy to use, and they’ll let you download a CSV (you can open this in MS Excel or Apple Numbers) with raw numbers. Continue reading ‘More Global Internet Statistics Coming Your Way’

‘Coupon’ Codes Can Lead to Conversions

No matter what some might say to the contrary, we’re soooo not cheap. We’re, uh, frugal. Yeah, that’s it – frugal; thrifty; economical, even.

OK, so perhaps we think two-ply tissue is for wimps, and when the dish detergent runs out we fill the bottle with water and shake it until extra suds squirt out the top. That doesn’t make us cheap; it makes us sensible – and, if we might add, environmentally friendly. Not like we feel the need to explain ourselves. We don’t. We just wish someone would get off our case already… Dad!

[Breeeeath. Count to 10.]
