Twitter Link Roundup #357 – Terrific Reads for Small Business, Entrepreneurs, Marketers, and Designers!

Cabin fever is a phenomenon known to any of us who have suffered through cold, unreasonably long winters.

How Marketers Can Change Agency Culture

In 2016 Avi Dan a NY based Agency search consultant wrote an article in Forbes titled Why Aren’t Women Starting Their Own Ad Agencies? The thrust of his discussion acknowledged the increase in women at the top of the big Madison Avenue agencies and celebrates the transformation: “This development is long overdue. For decades, Madison Avenue didn’t just restrict women to the back of the bus, it actually didn’t even allow women on the bus”. He continues with his hypotheses on women missing oppo...

Is Safe? Find Out In Our Review is a tool that was created to help people quickly delete accounts that they may have accumulated over time. If you’re a regular user of the internet there’s a good chance that you have at least a few existing accounts you don’t use anymore. This is pretty normal. It’s the online equivalent of all that random junk that people cram into their basements. While this might not seem like a big deal at first, it has the potential to turn into a major problem later on. Having a lot of accounts...

If an Alligator Infringes a Beaver Mark, Will a Cowboy?

You might recall that several months ago, we blogged about an intriguing trademark infringement battle between Buc-ee’s and Choke Canyon. In June 2018, the Texan rivals competing in the over-sized gas station market–a real niche, to be sure–went to trial, with Buc-ee’s arguing that Choke Canyon’s alligator logo infringed Buc-ee’s beaver mark: Incredibly, the Texan jury found in favor of Buc-ee’s. The jury also found that Choke Canyon’s alligator mark diluted (a/k/a “blurred”) the distinctivenes...

Most marketers laugh when they hear this question because they don’t have a high degree of confidence. In fact, according to my company’s research, 66% of marketing executives believe their brand message is lost by the time it reaches the front lines.

Blame Chadha

With the President on the brink of declaring a national emergency, let us briefly review how we got here. In the National Emergencies Act of 1976, Congress provided that such a declaration could be rendered null and void by a joint resolution of Congress. Subsequently, the statute was amended to say that such a resolution must be signed by the President or enacted after a congressional override. That makes a BIG difference. If the original standard were in place, there is a good chance that the ...

Mastering the medium

We know what it sounds like when you’re great at AM radio, classical music or even reality TV. We can imagine the tone and content you’ll need to be really good at being on Broadway. Jack Dorsey has made it clear that Elon Musk has mastered Twitter. He wrote, “I like how [he] uses Twitter. He’s focused on solving existential problems and sharing his thinking openly. I respect that a lot, and all the ups and downs that come with it.” Before you decide to master a medium, it’s worth considering th...
