It was a busy and short week for me, after spending a few days in Northern California celebrating family birthdays with lots of delicious food, wine and a stay at the historic Claremont Hotel in the Oakland Hills above Berkeley. But never fear, I kept up with with my explorations on the web, reading and experimenting with new software.
Here are 5 things I’ve been checking out this past week:
1. You already probably know I like books. When this list on Conde Nast Traveler popped up in my inbox, I was hooked: 22 Ambassadors Recommend the One Book to Read Before Visiting Their Country.
2. My dear friend and colleague Dr. Ellen Britt and I kicked off our Inner Fire program this week. Ellen gave a super presentation on the Anatomy of the Unconscious (or don’t forget to breathe) and reminded me to restart using the Simple Habit app to do short breathing meditations to calm my mind before going to sleep. I use the free version of the app which has plenty of meditation options for me.
3. I’m an AppSumo junkie and have been looking at purchasing Publbox. I took the plunge this morning. It’s a social media management tool. I spent 5 minutes setting up my social profiles and then did a couple of test posts on Twitter and scheduled one for my Facebook page. Super easy! And I like easy. I’ll spend more time with it this weekend. If you’re already using Publbox, let me know what you think, OK?
4. For marketers, this article on the Sumo blog has some excellent examples of email subject lines with a real-world case study and how to implement them for your own emails marketing.
5. I wouldn’t be a very good marketer if I didn’t remind you about the free virtual summit, Rock Your Online Visibility that begins on Monday, June 10. I don’t participate in many summits anymore, but I couldn’t say “no” when it’s on the precise topic I work on with my clients every day! (This event is over.)
