Hey You! Government Contractor Guy!

Posted by Scott May 25, 2010

Uncle Sam wants you! 
(To be found)

How does the government find vendors? GSA schedule? Maybe sometimes, but the government and all its agencies mostly rely on Google! It saves a lot of time. They can always Google a term like: “IT Support GSA Schedule” or “Defense Contractors on the XYZ Schedule.”  Using schedules is a headache, and the government always needs to find multiple qualified vendors for their contracts and bidding process.

Proof Positive: Social Media Increases Sales

Posted by Scott May 19, 2010

The following is an excerpt from a guest column on Talent Zoo by .

Dell’s ran a couple of social media studies. One claimed that over an 18-month period, Dell’s sales increased by $1 million. However, Bad Bob belittled this claim for various reasons, the main one being that Dell did not set a benchmark prior to measuring sales. While many believe Dell’s claim, it shows direct correlation between offering discounts on Twitter and increased sales, yet it’s not an ideal study. I decided to use it as an example of success, pending investigation. Call it a desirable outcome, a goal, or an example of social media’s capabilities.

Should CEOs Be Fluent in Social Media?

Posted by Scott April 26, 2010

Mashable recently talked with Forrester Research CEO George Colony about whether or not company CEO's should be versed in social media:

Why are there so few top executives on Twitter and social media in general? What are some of the major fears and issues that are preventing that kind of adoption?: There are really three factors there: one is age.
