Don’t be scared of the maths in this post. I want to share one of the reasons I enjoyed studied probability at university. It’s an infuriating, beautiful, brilliant subject with myriad applications to search marketing. It’s also (mainly) based in common sense if you are prepared to try to get past the maths. Don’t be scared of the terminology – I’m going to explain things from scratch. And then I’m going to try to apply it to some practical advice.

Trust does not need to involve belief in the good character, vices, or morals of the other party. Persons engaged in a criminal activity usually trust each other to some extent. Also, trust does not need to include an action that you and the other party are mutually engaged in.

Best Internet Marketing Posts of 2008: Social Media, SEO, and More ...
Today is my birthday, and I decided to give you all a gift that few of you have been highly anticipating for a few months now. My most popular post on this site — probably by far — was last year’s Best Internet Marketing Posts of 2007 compilation. I spent about 3 days (and nights) on it (without sleep) and I was quite happy with the turnout. This year, I began starting to write this compilation in the first week of December.

Like last year, I’ve grouped them into different categories ... market research, surveys and trends

Poll: Teens expect access to social networks at work « Online ...
A new survey conducted by Junior Achievement and Deloitte finds that teens fully expect to access social networking sites on-the-job. Will they get a rude awakening, or will this be the status quo by the time they enter the workforce?

I’ve been an advocate of social media guidelines , and those who haven’t may be after reading the results of this poll. I’ve ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

We are entering an era where corporate social responsibility (CSR) is of central concern to executives of almost every enterprise. With the publication of ISO 26000, a standard for CSR based on the UN Global Compact, executives now have a reliable blueprint for action.

I think their reputation is really a window into the company that they work for. Unless you've done a lot of research into a specific company, the only thing you can base your opinion on is how their employees act. posted 1 month ago As a primary "face" to the customer the behavior and character of a salesperson is the embodiment of what the company stands for.
