    #8 Thanks for your input, @Harvey Lloyd. I try to write informative posts to give guidance people who can't afford to pay for my services. Inexperienced small business people will often put money into things that are completely unnecessary. Likewise, they will also waste their man hours doing things they feel should be productive, but really produce nothing (such as spamming people and cold calling). I want my clients to get the most bang for their buck, but marketing miracles rarely happen. Branding and lead generation are processes that takes time to develop and produce results. Having a plan of action put together in the form of a marketing communications plan is a great way to start. That keeps you from wasting effort on meaningless, random tasks and if presented correctly, would also give you a timeline to work with. It is worth paying for that if you have the discipline and man hours available to implement it.

    If you (or any other business owner) can't spend money on marketing, or if you are intimidated by the monumental task ahead of you, then at least take the time to learn how to help yourself. It is your business, after all. The other thing you have to consider is that if you continually focus your business efforts on performing day to day activities which are technical in nature rather than growth focused, you will not be able to expand your business. The most fun part of owning a business, for me at least, is seeing how I can make it grow. I have a compelling need to create and develop something much larger than what is in front of me. That means paying people to do things that are an ineffective use of my time. At some point you will need to take that leap. Think of Tom Sawyer painting Aunt Polly's fence. Tom was a business person at heart.

    Wanted to offer some feedback from one small business Renee. Your post is communicated from inside a sphere you work in everyday. I am looking out from a different sphere into one that appears quite complicated, almost mystical. Not because it is, rather because of my vantage point.

    Small business struggles as resources are limited. A typical small business would balance an asset purchase that would enhance production or customer service against a fee for service marketing plan. Maybe not a good decision process but is typical of a small business leader.

    Small business gets bombarded with the marketing efforts as you have described. Just getting a business license enters you into the spam, junk mail and other spheres of influence of your checkbook. Typically the process has a numbing effect. More importantly, it is hard to distinguish the good from the bad. Maybe this is what the spammers are counting on.

    Having been in construction settings where the customer wanted to start now, but we couldn't finalize plans, the open-ended check book terrified them. But without finalized guidelines, there was no way to establish a cost. I get this same sensation when we discuss marketing. It seems to have an open checkbook feel. Not sure how one would close this off for their customer.

    @Renée 🐝 Cormier, I knew parrots are very smart but I had no idea how much the up-keep is. I could never do it! Kudos to you. I had a parrot talking to me when I took a trip to our humane shelter this summer. The parrot was even repeating a few things I said. So cool but not for me!

    My daughter had guinea pig and it's name was Skittles, she named her. Skittles was like a loving kitty cat. I would go in to check on Skittles because my daughter was 13 at the time and I could not trust her to take care of her pet like an adult would. One day I walked in and Skittles hadn't eaten or drank her food in 2 days. I felt her and she was very cold too. I tried to feed her with my hands and a dropper, it didn't work. I took her to the Vet the next day. I had her in a box and I was used to bringing my dog to the Vet, not a guinea pig! All of a sudden I heard, "Skittles, you can come back." I felt almost embarrassed and looked around to see if anyone was chuckling. Skittles??? That was the only humorous part of the trip. Once I brought her in, they said she had pneumonia and was bleeding internally. I had her put to sleep. Again, I never imagined I would bring a Guinea pig to the vet and then have her put to sleep. I never imagined I would cry. I cried like a baby! So yes, we can get attached to pets we would not have dreamed of. She loved being held and would always climb on your lap and look into your eyes. She wasn't a biter, just sweet.

    Thanks for sharing, this is good information for others to know! Your parrots are beautiful by the way.

    That's a whole lotta love n feathers dear Renee! And heartwarming too! I have spent time with parrots up close and they are an engaging bunch. I fed em some guavas and berries a few times when in their company. They pick up words and phrases fast and imitate recklessly! ;) In India, they are used (caged mode) by street fortune tellers to pick up Parrot-Cards (a la Tarot Cards).

    #9 If I could only keep one bird, it would be the smallest one, for the exact reasons you mention. The bigger birds are more destructive, require a lot more handling and attention and are much messier. I do love them all, however. They have their own little personalities and they are quite loving. It's funny, though. If your dog bit you, you would give it away or put it down. Bird owners are much more tolerant. If you fail to read your bird's body language, you will get bitten, so we tend to blame ourselves.

    I can understand your attraction with parrots, Renée, as I have a cockatiel who has featured in a couple of my buzzes. But she's small, manageable, loves her head to be scratched, doesn't bite, stays close to her cage (most of the time) and loves our Queensland warm weather (so no expensive rooms and heaters). We also stay in touch with the breeder, her Auntie Maureen, from whom we originally got her, and she goes back to see her Auntie Maureen for regular visits when we go away. But she can be very messy, even more so when she's laid eggs, and she makes a lot of noise when she wants attention. Don't think I could handle the biting, larger mess, louder noise, and general maintenance of a larger bird, never mind four! Geez, Renée, your mother must have taken you to see a lot of pirate movies when you were young?

    The issue of who "won" the debate is a red herring of the highest magnitude. The fact is that Trump demonstrated for the umpteenth time that he iss the paragdigm megalomaniac by insisting that he, and he ALONE can fix what's wrong with this nation's economy and political structure. Without providing even the barest outline of how he plans to do it. Every time he was asked for even a hint of his plans, he responded with "Well, Hillary hasn't done it in 30 years, so it's time for a change." Or with, "Well, something has to be done, and I am the only one who can do it." Even more chilling was his threat to "put Hillary Clinton in jail". Our policial system has survived all these years because of the accepted principle of peaceful transition of power, and refraining from jailing losing candidates and political enemies. To overtly move away from that principle not only shows Trump does not understand the underpinnings of US democracy, but also that he is an authoritarian who could easily morph into a dictator, and a true and present danger to this republic. I hold no book for any of the current crop of Wahsington politicians (except for Bernie Sanders, who gets it), but to my mind the highest order of priority at this point is to keep Trump out of office.

    Part 1
    #9 "... before being retracted & deleted from the public domain, American voters overwhelmingly in poll after poll, voted that Trump Won The 2nd Presidential Debate." sez Albert Gibel

    JV> Well, Sort of ... but not really.

    There's already been credible analysis on the issue - and I hope you'll check it out. In the meantime, here's a thumbnail response from Vox (http://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2016/9/27/13072668/debate-trump-clinton-polls):

    "The key difference is the kind of poll the candidates are citing. Trump is going on unscientific online polls, which don’t have any controls to make sure they are actually representative of American voters. Clinton’s claim relies on more rigorous scientific polls — those like CNN’s — that apply controls to try to be representative of US voters.

    The difference between unscientific and scientific polls

    The polls that Trump is relying on let anyone vote with absolutely zero checks. If you’re online at the time and find the poll, you can vote. You don’t have to live in America or be a US citizen. And you can vote multiple times — by reopening a browser tab, going behind an internet proxy, or logging on to a different account.
    John Vaughan
    11/10/2016 #11 John Vaughan
    Part 2
    #9 "... before being retracted & deleted from the public domain, American voters overwhelmingly in poll after poll, voted that Trump Won The 2nd Presidential Debate." sez @Albert Gibel

    This can lead to some very skewed results. For example, if an active online community — like r/The_Donald, the Reddit community that supports Trump — gets a bunch of people to vote on a poll (as they did), this can lead to Trump supporters overwhelming the results with a higher percent of Trump supporters than would otherwise be present in a typical sample of American voters. With such a skewed sample, it’s impossible to take the results seriously — it turns into a contest over which online community is most enthusiastic about winning unscientific polls, not how US voters feel about who won the debate.

    This is how Trump came ahead in a few online polls, including those at Drudge Report, Time magazine, and CNBC."

    I suppose one can dispute this analysis, but it makes sense to me.

    Perhaps more telling is the tsunami of rejection coming from an otherwise-highly-disciplined Republican party leadership. In response, Mr Trump - in true Trumpian fashion - doubles down on resentment. It's over, Albert. The only real question is how we - as a nation - deal with the reality of it. It's sorta the heart of Mr Rather's warning in his article.

    #2 I'm all about teaching and sharing, @Sara Jacobovici. I always tell people to create educational content. If people find you a good resource, those who can afford to pay you, will. Those who can't afford to pay you we be helped, and what's wrong with that?

    #2 Yes, I agree. I'm looking forward to seeing the new BeBee. This post did better on LinkedIn where there are many PR people in relevant groups. The hives on beBee are not always the most productive way to get your content noticed (not that LI is always so great). Those with low membership don't give you much reach. Having said that, I enjoy posting my content on beBee. It's always nice to interact with so many intelligent people. LI doesn't seem to inspire a lot of that kind of interaction.

    #1 I agree, @Renée 🐝 Cormier, that your and Veronica's piece is nicely complementary to mine and the comments attached there by other industry pros.
    ( https://www.bebee.com/producer/@friedman-phil/writing-effective-press-releases )

    I also agree that there are a number of other necessary facets to marketing communications, other than simply broadcasting press releases to various media outlets. For whether a press release is picked up depends on many things other than just its newsworthiness. For example, competing demands by advertisers, the assumed interests of competitors who happen to be advertisers, the amount of space available in the publication, the relationship between the marketing communications person and the media editors involved, even what side of the bed the editor got up on that morning.

    And your piece offers very solid advice for going to the market direct -- which in this digital age is a lot easier than it used to be. Once beBee implements fully the needed tools for topic filtering and otherwise properly managing hives, it will be great to gather pieces such as yours and mine and post them to a topic-specific hive, sort of like doing an anthology, don't you think? Cheers!

    @Phil Friedman I think this is a nice complement to your recent post about how to structure a media release. Sometimes even the most newsworthy releases get ignored by the media. Here are some creative alternatives to help you get your message out without using the media!

    The reason there are do many obstacles for innovative, out of the box thinkers, is because of the fear of the unknown factor. The unfamiliar means innovation in workability. Its cheaper and easier to repeat familiar tasks even though you know the unfamiliar innovative concept is beneficial. Yet: who will take responsibility for the workings of s new idea, knowing there may be ineffeciencies or repeatitions?
    You need to be in top management to acceot an innovative idea..
    Unless the company is really unusual.

    If the news actually told you the truth - their pay masters would fire them before the end of broadcast, edition, or next station break. 'News' is a bought and paid whore for the masters they serve - and it has never been anything more.

    I think educating people about the filter bubbles on google, bing, and other search engines is even more important, because that feeds into the whole social algorithm ecosystem too. As a start, it's easier to get someone to use a different search engine than to get them to change to a different social site where people don't know anybody.
