  1. Thanks for reminding me, Rob. That I need to do this myself. Great stuff here.

      Glad that I was a reminder. Of course, with all the links you get SEO points as well. I have seen a number of folks clicking on one or more of the posts.


  2. Interesting that SWOT analysis was the most popular. Would have thought that many of the other posts would have attracted more attention. For instance the one about companies marketing mistakes – or – the one questioning if marketing is art or science.

    Happy New Year!

    I enjoyed your 2010 popular posts. Particularly the 20 reasons to issue a press release. Many of my clients feel they don’t have news worthy of a release and your post is a nice reminder, especially in this age of social media that there are many reasons to share company news.

      Thanks for reading. I enjoyed putting together the post about press releases. Many of the sages of Social Media say that press releases are dead. I totally disagree with that premise. Used properly press releases and social media work hand in hand.
