There are many articles I read on a daily basis for both work and pleasure. Below are some of the most recent ones I’ve read in the last week, along with some commentary about each article.
“Stop arguing about who owns digital. It doesn’t matter in the long run.” – Boagworld
I work in a very traditionally structured organization, where for several years the website design was owned by marketing, and the hosting/tech was owned by IT. I’d say it’s now 97-ish% owned by marketing. This post from Boagworld does a good job of addressing this issue.
“Attracting and Retaining Good Digital Staff” – MediaTemple
Another post from Boag, but over at MediaTemple. People who work in Digital are a different breed, aren’t we? Here’s some tips on how to make sure we’re satisfied and productive.
“Why Building Your Personal Brand Can be as Simple as Saying ‘Yes’” – Proposify [PODCAST]
I’m still on this personal branding kick while I start building up my blog, focusing on email marketing. So, I’ve been reading a lot on personal branding and what I can do moving forward.
“Can we talk about gender diversity at email conferences?” – Only Influencers
A great article about an important topic. I know an incredible amount of women marketers. In fact, the majority of people on our marketing team at GreatAmerica are women. So, where is the same proportion of representation at conferences? I didn’t necessarily notice this at Dreamforce the last two years, but I’ll be keeping my eyes open on Diversity in the future!
“Diversity: The Discussion” – Only Influencers
A follow-up discussion on the aforementioned link.
