¿Qué es dirigir?


Publicado por Leonardo Gargiulo

De España me traje un libro de Damián Frontera, llamado “El Arte de dirigir empresas” El estímulo incesante, donde cuenta la historia de su carrera profesional en un empresa que en sus comienzos fue una empresa familiar de Chacinados y que luego pasó a manos de una multinacional norteamericana y en otro momento a una multinacional alemana, hasta ser adquiridos finalmente por Campofrío. Realmente atrapante y muy interesante la historia.
Pero rescato como para compartir y reflexionar en decálogo que el propone de ¿qué es dirigir?.

Si tuvieramos que definir la palabra Dirigir diríamos que es hacer todo lo necesario para alcanzar los objetivos con la colaboración de otras personas. La clave en esto es ser eficaz haciendo hacer a otras personas. Sigue leyendo

SXSW Gets Seat-Level Check-Ins With SitBy.Us


Thousands upon thousands of people will be in Austin, Texas next month for the South By Southwest Interactive festival – and several different services will be competing to show you where you can find your friends at the big event. Only one app, though, is focused on displaying your location down to the level of where you are sitting!

SitBy.Us is a web and mobile web application that lets you peruse the SXSW panel, keynote and party schedules, check in to rooms and locations, identify where in the big crowded rooms and parties you are sitting. Then it lets you see which of your friends from Twitter are there too and where. The service is a little unstable right now, but it looks like the kind of thing that’s going to get slammed in Austin.

The 5 Most Interesting Things About Google’s ReMail Acquisition


Email startup ReMail announced this afternoon that it’s been acquired by Google and there’s a pretty interesting story behind this cool technology that could inspire future developments in Gmail.

The news was announced by ReMail CEO Gabor Cselle on his blog today (we learned about it first via CenterNetworks). Gabor was a former Gmail intern and was YCombinator funded. There are even more interesting elements to this story than that, though.

ReMail the app has already been discontinued from the iTunes App Store, but here are some ways it could impact Gmail in the future anyway. Cselle will now become a product manager on Gmail. The core feature of ReMail was full-text search of all the emails in your Gmail or other online inbox, even when you were offline. That wasn’t the only cool thing about ReMail, though. Sigue leyendo

“Text me, don’t call me.” Sounds familiar?


Mobile phone subscribers per 100 inhabitants 1...

Have you ever come across people that you’ve tried calling and emailing for hours but failed to receive any response from them? However, when you text them, they almost immediately reply.

To be honest, I’m not that big on texting; with an average of about 300 plus texts per month. This number is miniscule compared to my 19 year old sister who averages about 1,000 plus texts per month. Compared to her fellow friends, she is not unusual at all.

According to Nielsen Mobile, in the first quarter of 2009, the average U.S teenager made and received an average of 191 phone calls and sent and received 2,899 text messages every month. By the third quarter, the number of texts jumped to a whopping 3,146 messages per month. This is equivalent to more than 10 text messages per hour.

At the beginning of 2007, these numbers were only 255 phone calls and 435 text messages. Preteens on the other hand, receive about 1,146 texts every month. Sigue leyendo

“La publicidad dejará de ser un gasto para ser una inversión”

El club de creativos (c de c) convocó a los mayores anunciantes de España –Coca Cola, Mercedes-Benz, Caja Madrid, Cepsa, Repsol, Sony Music, Loterías y Apuestas del Estado… – para reflexionar sobre la innovación en el campo de la comunicación comercial y la utilización de nuevos soportes para lograr mejores resultados.

El argentigo Rodrigo Figueroa Reyes, invitado del II Día A, nos habló del advertainment, la comunicación entendida como entretenimiento.En una situación de cambios en la comunicación como la que estamos viviendo actualmente, se escogió, el valor de las marcas, como tema de debate después de que la asociación Promarca, donde se reúnen algunos de los principales anunciantes españoles, lanzase hace unos meses una campaña en la que reivindicaba dicho valor.

 Cómo aplicar el email márketing efectivamente

El email márketing puede ser una herramienta altamente efectiva a la hora de conseguir ventas, y tráfico. Por mucho tiempo, el email márketing fue despreciado por las empresas “serias” de promoción online. Pero la realidad es que, bien empleado, es una manera muy efectiva de lograr más visitas y más ventas.

Lo primero es la lista de destinatarios. No caiga con esas bases de datos compradas. El hacer esto, supone la negación misma de la finalidad última del email márketing, que es fidelizar a los usuarios, entre otras cosas.

Top analyst tweeters (coming soon)

The next table of analyst tweeters will be published very soon. If you were not included in the previous list and believe you should be mentioned please let me know.

Note – all calculations will be done via TweetLevel on Friday 18th February. Even though this tool is dynamic, I will only be able to report a static list on this blog.

Algorithm and Methodology

tmp9CD FollowingTwitter lists the number of people each user follows. The tendency for most celebrities is to only follow a few individuals. The more people that someone follows, there is an increased likelihood of them actively participating in conversations with the community instead of simply broadcasting to it. Following ranges were determined (i.e. more than 20, more than 30, etc.) and each range was assigned a number (0 to 30) that was used as part of the algorithm. Note: Twitter opened its API to TweetLevel so that data could be sourced easily and quickly to benefit the user. Sigue leyendo

Reuters Reporter Assaulted While Investigating Apple’s Top-Secret China Suppliers

The pressure to keep secrets while working for Apple‘s supply chain partners in China is so intense that one worker killed himself last year, reportedly over a missing iPhone prototype.

So it’s not surprising — but still appalling — that a Reuters reporter was recently assaulted by security guards on a road outside a factory in China, just for taking photos.

Reuters buried the account halfway through an excellent, lengthy feature on the subject of secrecy within Apple’s Asian supply chain:

Tipped by a worker outside the Longhua complex that a nearby Foxconn plant was manufacturing parts for Apple too, our correspondent hopped in a taxi for a visit to the facility in Guanlan, which makes products for a range of companies.

As he stood on the public road taking photos of the front gate and security checkpoint, a guard shouted. The reporter continued snapping photos before jumping into a waiting taxi. The guard blocked the vehicle and ordered the driver to stop, threatening to strip him of his taxi license.

The correspondent got out and insisted he was within his rights as he was on the main road. The guard grabbed his arm. A second guard ran over, and with a crowd of Foxconn workers watching, they tried dragging him into the factory.

The reporter asked to be let go. When that didn’t happen, he jerked himself free and started walking off. The older guard kicked him in the leg, while the second threatened to hit him again if he moved. A few minutes later, a Foxconn security car came along but the reporter refused to board it. He called the police instead. Sigue leyendo

No more big events


by Seth Godin

Here are things that you can now avoid:

  • The annual review
  • The annual sales conference
  • The big product launch
  • The grand opening of a new branch
  • Drop dead one-shot negotiation events

The reasons? Well, they don’t work. They don’t work because big events leave little room for iteration, for trial and error, for earning rapport. And the biggest reason: frequent cheap communication is easier than ever, and if you use it, you’ll discover that the process creates far more gains than events ever can.

Six @ Six: 6 Questions to Ask Before Engaging in a Social Media Platform


The top six social media tips to know before you leave the office.

As social media use continues to grow – particularly throughout the business world – it can be difficult for companies to identify where best to focus their limited resources. After all, there are hundreds of social networking sites around today, and few companies have the bandwidth to properly engage on all of them.

With over 80% of Americans involved on at least one social networking site, the importance of corporate social media engagement cannot be understated. When correctly utilized, social media provides unparalleled opportunities for reaching new audiences, strengthening relationships with current customers and supporters, and building goodwill should you ever need to draw on it during a crisis.

Before diving into social media, every company needs to carefully outline its goals and consider which platforms are best for achieving their desired results. This week’s Six @ Six outlines six of the most important questions each company needs to ask when considering a social media presence. If you have additional suggestions, let me know on Twitter @DallasLawrence. Sigue leyendo

LinkedIn


If you are an active or passive job seeker, there is no better way to cut through the clutter and get yourself noticed than LinkedIn. Nowadays, most recruiters and companies are increasingly using sites like LinkedIn to identify talent. Given my experience looking for candidates, here are some key characteristics of a LinkedIn user that grab my attention when I make my daily picks:
1. Make your LinkedIn profile 100% complete
• Include all companies, education, and awards. These are the key items on which we recruiters search.• References are very important. The more we know about you the better.• The more robust your profile, the higher you will be in the Google search rankings.• The more information a recruiter has upfront, the more efficient the search process.• Update your LinkedIn profile here
2. Use a profile picture that you use on multiple sites
• A picture helps to create and reinforce your online brand• It will help a recruiter identify you on the interview day at “Starbucks”• Add a profile picture here Sigue leyendo
