Top Links And Tweets For The Week of August 7, 2010
Every week I post a digest of very fine links and tweets. Here are the best links I found in past week:
- How To Create A Killer Social Media Strategy : From big companies to freelancers everybody in on Social Media. In this article Alyson Shontell shares five tips for effectively applying social media for business. First and the best is: It is better to be extensive in fewer social networks than to spread yourself thin.

- Why Startup Founders Should Stop Reading Business Books : “The problem is that the premise of all of them – whether true or false – is irrelevant to you as a startup founder”, says Rob Walling, a Micropreneur. I think this is applicable not just for starups but for all business owners in general. So what’s the remedy? “..Look for resources that provide actionable take-aways to improve your business and that focus on topics that are specifically relevant to your situation. You want laser-focused, just-in-time learning.” (If don’t know what “Micropreneur” means, go find out in his site).
- Day 1 – Take a Tour of Getting Results the Agile Way : We got too much to do and not enough time. Can we really achieve what we set to? J.D. Meier posts series of posts for getting results the agile way. Key step: “Monday Vision, Daily Outcomes, and Friday Reflection.”
- YouTube – President Obama Explains Healthcare.gov : How often do you see a politician reach out to common public to explain their policy? Despite disagreeing with President Obama on his policies, his use of social media to reach common man should be applauded.

- Suppandi: There are two rules for success: 1.) Don’t tell all you know.
