    Direct marketing is outbound, measured and designed to pay for itself. So, the catalog you get in the mail, or the Fuller Brush man. The idea was to buy stamps (or some other form of contacting people) and make enough money on average to buy more stamps. Before the internet, direct marketing was on a steady growth path. The science of testing and improving offers and the industrialization of systems that lowered costs meant that more and more organizations were using direct marketing to solicit donations, get votes and sell products and services. One of the key elements that allows direct…

    There is only one northern white male rhinoceros left on the planet. Its home is 200km north of Nairobi in Kenya, at Ol Pejeta Conservancy. Joining Sudan, the male, are two female northern white rhinos. Together, they are three of the last five remaining northern white rhinos in the world.The subspecies are on the verge of extinction, suffering greatly since poaching surged in the 1960s. According to The Guardian, a rhino's horn can sell at prices upward of $75,000 per kilo (2.2 US pounds), leaving them under great threat.

    Direct marketing is outbound, measured and designed to pay for itself. So, the catalog you get in the mail, or the Fuller Brush man. The idea was to buy stamps (or some other form of contacting people) and make enough money on average to buy more stamps. Before the internet, direct marketing was on a steady growth path.

  • The panic tax

    Seth Godin
    30 Mar 2015 | 1:56 am
    Systems under severe stress degrade. While individuals might do extraordinary work while pumped with adrenalin (lifting a car, running through a burning building), panic can decrease the efficacy of a system by 30% or more--often completely destroying it. Compare the typical throughput of a highway during rush hour (when it's filled with seasoned commuters) to a similar road when people are fleeing a natural disaster.... in the first case, the cars naturally keep a safe distance, drivers are sufficiently alert, everyone gets home. In the other, there's a complete standstill. Or consider how…
  • Self talk

    Seth Godin
    29 Mar 2015 | 2:28 am
    There's no more important criticism than self criticism. There's no amount of external validation that can undo the constant drone of internal criticism. And negative self talk is hungry for external corroboration. One little voice in the ether that agrees with your internal critic is enough to put you in a tailspin. The remedy for negative self talk, then, is not the search for unanimous praise from the outside world. It's a hopeless journey, and one that destroys the work, because you will water it down in fear of that outside critic that amplifies your internal one. The remedy is accurate…
  • 'Pick yourself' and taking responsibility

    Seth Godin
    28 Mar 2015 | 2:15 am
    Perhaps you've decided that the idea of Pick Yourself is sort of a new-age mantra, a promise that everyone is entitled to what they want, right now. What a shortcut it seems to be. A false promise, holding out that illusion that we can get what we want if we just raise our hand. Pick yourself, you win... It's precisely the opposite. If you want to be responsible for making music, make music. If you want to be responsible for writing, speaking, making change happen, go do that. Waiting to get picked is a form of hiding, not realism. No, it’s not always possible for everyone to…
  • Hypergrowth

    Seth Godin
    27 Mar 2015 | 2:53 am
    Fast growth comes from overwhelming the smallest possible audience with a product or service that so delights that they insist that their friends and colleagues use it. And hypergrowth is a version of the same thing, except those friends and colleagues quickly become even bigger fans, and tell even more people. Often, we get sidetracked when we forget about "smallest possible." If you make the audience you're initially serving too big, you will dilute the very thing you set out to make, avoid critical mass, and compromise the magic of what you're building. You'll make average stuff for…

    If you’re anything like me, you love words. You love prose, you love language, you love how a perfectly-constructed sentence can say so much more than just letters put in order. If you’re unlike me, however, you love to use lots of words, and write mountains of prose. I know it’s hard not to get carried away, telling everyone everything you’ve ever wanted to say about a subject.

The purpose of this minichapter is to explain how to do all this when you’re employed by a large business. Ironically, many entrepreneurs envy the employees of major companies—they think that these lucky souls have humongous financial resources, large sales forces, fully equipped labs, scalable factories, and established brands, plus medical and dental…

The pictures, which show the mystery port, a headphone jack/speakers, and the camera, originated on microblogging site Sina Weibo and were shared by Italian site HDBlog. Case manufacturers and other accessory makers often create dummy models of upcoming Apple devices to get an early start on…
  • Leaked Images Provide First Look at Purported Rear Shell of 'iPhone 6c'

    30 Mar 2015 | 8:21 am
    Chinese parts supplier Future Supplier (via Nowhereelse.fr) has posted leaked images of what it believes could be the rear shell for the so-called "iPhone 6c." The rear housing looks similar to the plastic iPhone 5c, with two notable differences being a pill-shaped LED flash cutout and two rows of speaker grilles on the bottom of the smartphone. The size of the rear shell indicates that the device's screen size could fall within the 4-inch range. The pill-shaped LED flash design and two rows of speaker grilles are also found on the iPhone 5s, indicating that the iPhone 6c could have the same…

    Yesterday, I had the pleasure to sit down with my friends Darren Rowse and Brian Clark. The last time the three of us sat quietly was in 2008 or 2009 when we launched the Third Tribe group (ah, memories). I joked that I wanted to bring that back and we could call it Sixth Tribe. You know, Third Tribe 2.0. Alas. Content Will Never Be King The conversation was brief, fun, and sprinkled with some melancholy about the fact that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Darren is thriving with his Problogger events and his Digital Photography School. Brian is running Copyblogger Media,…
  • Content Marketing as a Food Truck: Rethinking Content Marketing In A World of Splintered Attention

    Chris Brogan
    25 Mar 2015 | 6:05 am
    With well over a billion users, Facebook must easily rank as most people’s “where I see interesting stories and click” tool of choice. Sure, us nerds might point to Feedly or Flipboard, but that’s not “most people.” That’s the enlightened. Some of us get our favorite sites to our inbox. But that’s more rare than not. What seems most true, however, is that hardly anyone stops by someone’s actual blog any more (or say “site” in case you bristle at the word “blog.”) If people aren’t visiting blogs directly any…

  • How a $200 Chromebook Earned my Company $28,000 in Ten Days

    Chris Brogan
    21 Mar 2015 | 8:08 am
    This is the Acer Chromebook 11 CB3-111-C670. It’s about the size of a Macbook Air, kinda. It runs the Google Chrome OS, which means it’s pretty much like a browser-only deal. All the apps you use are web-based. And this device helped me make $28,000 in ten days. Could a Chromebook Make You More Money? I suspect you already know the real answer to how this worked. This Chromebook isn’t the most powerful computer in the universe. If you have a lot of tabs open, it doesn’t work well. So, I don’t have many tabs open.

    I can count on one hand the number of times that something I’ve tried to sell has been well-received by the people I serve. You know how some kids are a late bloomer? That’s me with most of the things I sell. People buy them years later sometimes. But this time, I really struck gold. How We Write Our Sales Letter Sequence I learned a lot while putting together the now-defunct webinar version of Online Course Maker. (Let me reiterate: the WEBINAR VERSION IS GONE). First, I learned that there’s such a thing as too much information for a format. I tried to cram way too much…

    Jerod Morris
    31 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    The Early Bird Price for Authority Rainmaker ends today, so I had a message planned for today making one final case for why you should join us in Denver, Colorado this May. But then I read what Raubi wrote on Friday about how much last year’s event accelerated her career. The quick version: She came to Denver questioning why she was even in the room; she left prepared to take a leap of faith and bet on herself. So she did. Now she runs her own company. She got clarity, so she got moving. (By the way, we didn’t ask Raubi to write about her experience. She wanted to share her…
  • A Quick-Start Guide to Measuring Your Content Marketing Efforts

    Mike King
    31 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    Simply put, if you’re not measuring, you’re not marketing. In fact, if you’re whipping up blog posts and infographics without business objectives, you’re basically partaking in a very expensive version of arts and crafts. Your job as a content marketer is to show your boss the money — not traffic, not links — mon-naay. Let’s talk about how to get started effectively measuring your content marketing efforts. Measurement separates digital marketing from traditional advertising As a native Philadelphian (I live in Brooklyn now), I know a little too much…

    Someone in this room is going to change everything because they cared. Seth Godin and his round-framed glasses stared back at a room filled with ambitious entrepreneurs-in-training, and I looked around wondering who would be the next person to “change everything.” That’s how my experience at Copyblogger’s Authority event in 2014 began — looking into the audience like I wasn’t part of the audience. Still not seeing myself as someone who could take a chance and grow my own business. But that’s not how I ended my experience. By the conclusion of the…

In this one, they talk about the “how.” As many of you know by now, it has been almost two weeks since Copyblogger Media launched an on-demand audio network called Rainmaker.FM.

  • AT&T brings gigabit Internet to Apple's home town, charges steep premium over cities where Google Fiber's available

    31 Mar 2015 | 6:48 am
    AT&T promised to bring gigabit broadband to Silicon Valley, and more than seven months later it has finally delivered. The carrier recently announced U-Verse with GigaPower is now available in parts of Cupertino, California—albeit for a steep price premium compared to the cost of the GigaPower service in cities with gigabit Internet competition.  GigaPower arrives ahead of Google Fiber, which is available in eight markets across the U.S., but has not yet come to the heart of America’s tech industry. Cupertino is best known as Apple’s home base, but it’s also just down the road…
  • First look: Todoist for iOS gets smarter and better-looking with new, free features

    31 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    Some people get a thrill from checking items off a hand-written to-do list. Others prefer to manage their lives with feature-packed digital calendars. I am both, and when I discovered Todoist earlier this year, it seemed like the best of both worlds: the ease of managing tasks in a centralized app combined with the simple pleasure of marking tasks off when you finish them. Now Todoist is even better with a facelift that delivers a new look and even more helpful new features. The popular task management app on Tuesday rolled out a brand new version for iOS that sets the stage for a dramatic,…
  • Wallet no more: How the tech behind Apple Pay can change our lives

    31 Mar 2015 | 3:33 am
    Despite the fact that it is, at least so far, a U.S-only affair, I think it’s fair to say that Apple Pay has become a rousing success. With dozens of partner banks, thousands of merchants, and millions of credit card enrolled in the program, the folks from Cupertino seem to have pulled off a feat that has, so far, eluded every last one of their competitors: Creating a digital wallet that is as easy to use and widely accepted as the traditional payment methods it replaces—and much more secure at that. Look beyond payments, however, and the interlocking puzzle of hardware and software that…

Today, though, I want to celebrate those scratches. Those scratches are the signs your iPod, your iPhone, your Mac is yours. They show it has lived—with you.

    It’s just like that for your product, too: people rely on our products to work. Bugs erode trust, which in turn loses customers. So when we began updating Foundation, a responsive CSS framework, we wanted to ensure everything worked. Thoroughly.

Toward the end of 2014, a Google spokesperson hinted that the mobile user experience would become a ranking factor2.

  • DIY Light Modifier You Can Do With Savage Translum Material

    Tristan Robitaille
    31 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    The thing studio product photographers hate the most is when undesirable reflections show up in their images. There are many ways to control these and I’ve got one that you can easily build at home. It’s a DIY project using the Savage Translum material. What you’ll be creating is a rollable sheet of Translum with a hole in the middle for your camera lens. That will enable you to set it between the object you’re photographing and the camera which will eliminate the big direct reflections you get by using a softbox pointed straight on the subject. What is Savage Translum material?
  • The Importance of Capturing Gesture and Emotion in Street Photography

    James Maher
    30 Mar 2015 | 11:00 am
    Sometimes an expression can cut you like a knife. One of the most fascinating things about street photography is that it can be so hard to pinpoint the reasons why one photograph works and another does not. A good street photograph can be sharp or it can be blurry; it can be in contrasty light or in soft and even light; it can be an energetic scene with layers of people or it can be a quiet shot with nobody in it. It gets further complicated when you start to think about the ideas, moods, and feelings that your images suggest. Despite this lack of certainty, I believe there are two…

    Weddings have changed drastically in the past few years. Couples want more from a wedding these days, they don’t want the traditional, normal photography anymore. They frequently ask for documentary or candid wedding photography because it captures the emotions of not only the couple, but also the guests enjoying themselves without lining them up in front of the camera. But, candid photography is so much more than just pointing your camera at people and shooting away to glory. You, as a photographer, need to know and understand the finer nuances involved in candid wedding photography;…

    Original Image One of the great things about the adjustment tools is that you can add color to the affect. Heck it could be the only setting you applied to that tool. I rely heavily on Photoshop’s color picker/eyedropper to help me choose colors since I have been known to have some color issues. But if you use a track pad or tablet device such as a Wacom Intous in Lightroom and you click on the color swatch to choose a color… as soon as you move your mouse out of the color palette, and try to sample a color in the image… the cursor changes to a regular one and you…

  • Review: The BrydgeAir Keyboard Turns Your iPad Air 2 Into a Mini MacBook

    After we published our review of the ClamCase Pro keyboard for the iPad Air 2, some of our readers suggested that we take a look at other iPad keyboards available on the market. We decided to take MacRumors readers up on that suggestion, and over the next few weeks, we'll be looking at several keyboards designed for Apple's newest tablet, the iPad Air 2. We're kicking things off with a review of the BrydgeAir keyboard, which is able to work with both the original iPad Air and the iPad Air 2. Much like the ClamCase Pro we previously looked at, the all-aluminum BrydgeAir is designed to turn the…

    With just under a month until the April 24 launch date of the Apple Watch, internationally renowned Nanoblock artist Christopher Tan has re-created the Apple Watch in block form in anticipation of the wearable's release next month. As Tan notes, the sculpture is a 2.6x scale model of the 42mm Apple Watch created from over 800 pieces of Nanoblock, which is a popular building block product in Japan, akin to LEGO. Tan says he's "been a long-time Apple fan" and is "eagerly anticipating the Apple Watch." Tan has been creating Apple-related Nanoblock structures for a while now, last year debuting a…
  • FDA Taking 'Almost Hands-Off Approach' to Regulating Apple Watch and Similar Wearables

    As Apple and other companies create products capable of providing more and more detailed health-related information, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has decided to give the companies creating these devices breathing room to manufacture the devices free, for the most part, from the scrutiny of the agency (via Bloomberg Business). The FDA's associate director for digital health, Bakul Patel, noted that while the agency will be more lenient on devices aimed at simply improving the lifestyle of its customers, more health-invasive features, like a glucose monitor app on the Apple Watch, will…

    After talking with Tim Cook onstage at the March 9 "Spring Forward" media event, model Christy Turlington Burns has kept a weekly blog on Apple's official website with updates on her preparations for the London Marathon next month. In this week's post, Burns mentions in passing that the Watch will not only learn a user's stride after a few exercises when paired with an iPhone, after a while the Watch will be able to act independently in tracking fitness-related stats without needing to be tethered to an iPhone at all (via MacObserver). Burns shows off the ease of exchanging Apple Watch bands…
