“The unemployment rate for college graduates in April was a mere 3.9 percent, compared with 7.5 percent for the work force as a whole, according to a Labor Department report released Friday. Even when the jobless rate for college graduates was at its very worst in this business cycle, in November 2010, it was still just 5.1 percent. That is close to the jobless rate the rest of the work force experiences when the economy is good. Among all segments of workers sorted by educational attainment, college graduates are the only group that has more people employed today than when the recession started.”

Real excited for the full album May 21st. You can listen to their “Get Lucky” single here.
First, create so much value (efficiency, time-savings, cost-savings, happiness, whatever) that there’s no need to “compute” it. Make the so-called pay-back period less than a month. Change someone’s workflow so drastically for the better that they can’t live without it whether it’s saving money or not. Improve your customers’ marketing campaigns so obviously and drastically that they don’t need a spreadsheet to understand its value.
Second, price according to willingness and ability to pay rather than as a direct function of so-called “value.” The software development department has a budget for tools and different companies have different ways of arguing internally for expanding that budget — you have to match those constraints regardless of “value delivered.” The marketing department might be willing to pay for services but not for tools.”

On September 27th, Twitter forced If This Then That to quit cross posting Twitter tweets to other social networks. Basically reducing IFTTT’s efficacy in the social space by half. Here’s how to work around this problem and still get your tweets shared to other networks.
Twitter creates an exploitable RSS feed from your handle’s posts that can be fed via IFTTT to different areas around the web.
Step 1) Finding your Twitter RSS feed
The exact url for your Twitter RSS feed looks like this:
Simply replace the “[YourUsername]” portion of the link with your username on Twitter.
Step 2) Creating a new IFTTT task
Get into your IFTTT account (or create one) and create a new task.
- Select the RSS orange icon and plug in your new Twitter RSS feed url (created in step 1)
- Select the network of choice to publish your tweets to (in my case LinkedIn)
- Set up the status update with the elements of “Title” and “EntryUrl” as shown below
You should be good to go from there. At this point this is an interesting work-around to let Twitter know they can’t shut our publishing dreams down!
Let me know if this worked for you.
