Friday Favourites – 2nd August, 2013

Helen and George TubbOn a Friday I try to post my favourites from the week – links to cool content and tools that I’ve found or had recommended to me.

As today, 2nd August 2013, is my parents 38th Wedding Anniversary (that’s my Mom Helen and and my late Dad George pictured to the right, taken on their 30th Wedding Anniversary!) I thought it fitting to theme this week’s favourites around cool tools that enable you to build and cultivate relationships!

  • Glide – Video texting. Send your friends messages that can be viewed now or later. The Glide App is in beta for both Android and iOS. I’ve been using this for the past week and it’s effectively the video equivalent of SMS. Well worth checking out!
  • Branch – Bring together a group of people to have a public discussion on Twitter.
  • AnyMeeting – Free (Ad Supported) Web Conferencing software for up to 200 attendees.

Do you have any cool content or tools to share with me? Why not e-mail me, Tweet me, or share with me on Google+ and I if I feature them in my blog you can be sure to give you credit!

Have a great weekend! Smile

Webinar – Finding customers by Networking – Thur 28th April, 2011

Max with Building BlocksA heads-up that I’ll be running a Webinar in conjunction with Big Chris Martin and the folks at GFI Max entitled “Finding Customers by Networking”. It takes place on Thursday, April 28th at 4pm GMT (that’s 12pm EDT).

When I’m asked about how I grew my own IT business, the first thing I talk about is networking – that includes face-to-face business networking meetings, Social Networking on-line, and all the steps in between.

The free webinar is aimed at smaller IT companies who are looking to grow and over one hour, Chris and I will share with you some of the ideas, tips and techniques you can use for enabling business networking to deliver profitable clients.

We’ll cover:-

  • Why business networking works
  • Finding networking meetings (in both the UK and USA)
  • Tips for attending business networking meetings – including preparing for meetings, tips for “working the room” and how to effectively follow-up afterwards
  • Using Social Networking
  • General Tips
  • We’ll also be having a question and answer session

Registration is quick and free – just visit the “Finding Customers by Networking” page and sign-up!

Spaces for hecklers are strictly limited, so you’ll need to register fast! Smile

UPDATE:- If you join us at the webinar, then you can also expect a free copy of Chris Martin’s latest White paper “How to do Break/Fix well” as an attendee. Make sure to get yourself registered!
