ReBlog from Neurosciencemarketing.com http://www.neurosciencemarketing.com/blog/articles/helping-others-makes-you-hot.htm Helping Others Makes You Hot! Posted by Roger Dooley under Neuromarketing , Neuroscience Research Altruism in humans is difficult to explain with traditional models of behavior, which have focused on competition between individuals for mates, scarce resources, etc. Its undeniable, though, that being willing to help unrelated individuals is a common (though not universal) trait. In past Neuromarketing posts Taxes Arent Painful and The Joy of Giving vs. the Pain of Buying , I wrote about fMRI studies that showed how altruistic behavior activated the brains reward centers. Now, theres new research that suggests altruistic behavior makes... Read More


More Twitter Tips for Newbie's

I just love Guy Kawasaki, Check out his latest blog with more useful Twitter tips! http://blog.guykawasaki.com/2008/11/looking-for-m-1.html Tip 1: Follow the smores (social media whores*). They are the folks with large number of followers and seem to be the opinion leaders (and perhaps even heros) of Twitter. You can get a good idea of who they are by viewing Twitterati.alltop , TwitterCounter , and Egos.alltop . There are three reasons to follow them: first, many have scripts that will auto follow you; second, you might learn something from watching what they tweet about; third, when people look at your profile to see who you follow, you want to appear that you have a clue.

Kevin Houchin teaches TEC friends and members how to utilize WordPress.

By: Viveka Sunday November 9, 2008 comments Tags: Social Media

You gotta love Synchronicity!!! So I was emailing my LinkedIn buddy, uberpreneur Braun Minchner , and we were both talking about how we like these blogsites that look and act like websites. And as incredibly talented and adept as we both are, neither of us really knows how to create them. Later that day I hooked up, via twitter, with the Facebook Doyen, Mari Smith - who has a fantabulous blogsite (www.marismith.com) And I once again got blogsite envy. And then I found an email in my spam filter from another uberpreneur, Kevin Houchin (Esq.) Just so happens he is a WordPress expert. What is WordPress you might ask? (Well, I did) Its a blogging application that allows you to create - you guessed it - website like blogsites. Ah, but it doesnt end there. Several hours later... Read More

The Hook-Up - Taking the work out of networking http://e-marketingpartner.com/clients/ATrain/Oct08/B-Sides/articles.html#the-hook-up Don't be That Guy How to avoid over-compensating for your small network The guy who walks into the room, makes a b-line to the bar, chugs his first beer, and has seven more drinks in the next hour. Or the guy who gushes about his recent yacht purchase, his booming stock portfolio and his ever-growing relationship with the mayor. Or what about the lady who seems to think that airing her dirty laundry is a good icebreaker. Let's face it: no one wants to be that guy. Networking shouldn't be about trash-talking your co-workers, it's not a beer chugging contest and it's not a place to brag about your financial status. It's a place to meet... Read More

New to Twitter

By: Viveka Tuesday November 4, 2008 comments Tags: Social Media, LinkedIn and Twitter

So while I might have a really great understanding of linkedIn, I am a Twitter Newbie. But unlike LI, which can sometimes feel a little cold (who wants an "IDK"?!?), I've found most Tweeple to be really awesome and helpful. (So much so that I actually find myself using the word "Tweeple") It's not that I'm forgoing linkedIn, it's a fab business tool.... but I do find myself logging into Twitter more. ... Read More
