From these interactions over a mere several hours, I discovered two main differences between WEB and the normal boys club startup events that have unfortunately become customary.Although I certainly didn t have a chance to meet every attendee, the ones I spoke with – and overheard speaking with one another — were driven by similar traits as other entrepreneurs: passion and hunger.They never started with how revolutionary or ground-breaking the company is, its impact on the industry, the amount of funding raised, or who the biggest customers were.For example, a woman I spoke with before the event told me she had created her company Cocosine, which offers frozen food products focused on healthy, responsibly-sourced ingredients as part of kids dining options at school cafeterias, because she was fed up no pun intended with what children were being served at school.In my experience with networking, male founders of early-stage startups will rarely reveal their challenges it s all good because, in their eyes, it s a sign of weakness.The protectiveness may break down eventually, but it initially costs time and energy on both sides.The women I met, however, were candid and unapologetic about the issues they re facing and were receptive to giving and getting advice.Of our five largest clients, three have either female CEOs or VPs leading the charge at their organization.We understand the existing community to support female entrepreneurs is growing, but as consultants and leaders, we have to do a better job of using our knowledge to help women continue to make their mark in the startup world.
Yet another couple of high-ranking employees at the beleaguered social media company are reportedly spreading their wings and flying away — this time, it s Jana Messerschmidt, the head of business development, and Nathan Hubbard, head of media and commerce.Still, Messerschmidt and Hubbard s decisions constitute the most significant personnel news to emerge since four Twitter VPs left the company back in January.Messerschmidt, whose six-year tenure at Twitter made her one of the few remaining executives who could recall the pre-IPO time period at the firm, has played a key role in developing Twitter s partnerships with major names like IBM, Salesforce, and Google.And as for Hubbard, who was the CEO of Ticketmaster before he joined Dorsey s team, sources say that the tech veteran is looking to start a company of his own.1 A tweetstorm on why I joined Twitter, why I love Twitter, and why I've decided to leave Twitter next month:— Nathan Hubbard @NathanCHubbard May 26, 2016In a series of tweets, Hubbard explained the thought process behind his departure, tweeting, There are no words to express the gratitude I feel to the human beings I got to connect with at Twitter, colleagues present and past.While it is unclear as to what Twitter s long-term plans are for the newly vacated positions, for the time being, Messerschmidt and Hubbard s positions will be rolled into the responsibilities of Ali Jafari, who currently heads revenue in business development.
The same concept of agile mapping applies to digital marketing; however, many marketing agencies still operate with a firm timeline of goals and deliverables that are established at the very beginning of a program, and lack the practice of adapt and reposition based on changing client needs and competitive environments.According to, an agile approach to marketing values:Responding to change over following a planRapid iterations over Big-Bang campaignsTesting and data over opinions and conventionsNumerous small experiments over a few large betsIndividuals and interactions over target marketsCollaboration over silos and hierarchyBy implementing an agile approach, marketing teams and agencies are able to improve speed to deliver on high-impact results and gain adaptability based on results of these shorter sprints.What we found were three undeniable benefits for our clients: 1 – Better ResultsWhen we re constantly testing short-term sprints, the ability to understand the way in which our audience responds is achieved at a much faster rate.2 – Smaller Wins Along the Road to a Greater ObjectiveWe work directly with marketing professionals at many levels: VPs of Marketing, CMOs, Marketing Managers, Content Managers; all of which have a responsibility to keep stakeholders updated on progress and their marketing budgets return on investment.This can be particularly challenging for larger, more long-term objectives where an end deliverable or result is months away from fruition.3 – Ability to Change Course QuicklyWhen client s first sign an agreement with an agency, there is some discovery completed to determine what the best mix of services and approaches will be to help the client reach their goals.
Our very first guest was Funnelholic author and Topo co-founder Craig Rosenberg.Next we had Mike Weinberg, incredible writer, speaker, author, followed by Conrad Bayer, CEO & Founder of Tellwise.Recent Guests: Jim Keenan; Joanne Black; Aaron Ross; Josiane Feigon, Meagen Eisenberg, and Trish Bertuzzi.We cover a wide range of topics, with a focus on sales development and inside sales priorities heading into and throughout the year.I can tell you as a business owner and I get to talk to a lot of VP of Sales; it is time to feel the terror as many VPs of Sales say, feel the terror at the end of the month, end of the quarter.I started really looking into this a few years ago not only in the field of selling but really in virtually all of the major fields and domains out there whether medicine, music and it boils down to the mind, what s between the ears – that cognitive skill development.

It seems the wheels of 123-Reg's clown vehicle have fallen off once again, with its site currently out of action and customers reporting a lack of email access.One reader got in touch to say: "Over the past month or so the email service offered by 123.reg has been up and down and very poor for this small company I have been trying to support, 123.reg twitter is awash with complaints with email problems but no explanation has been offered?is this an email server upgrade gone wrong?"After problems with them deleting servers back in April it would appear something is very wrong at 123?It'd be good if someone at the register could get an answer."123-Reg customers is not exactly a stranger to periodic service outages.
The constant barrage of attacks severely affected the firm s efforts to mitigate the impact of the cyberattackThe labour day weekend in the US signifies the honouring of the American labour movement and is celebrated annually as a public holiday on the first Monday of September.However, it appears the holiday is not observed among hackers as evidenced by the massive DDoS attack mounted on Linode, one of the top global providers of virtual private servers VPS between 3 September and 5 September.Just hours after the DDoS attack was launched, Linode engineers, who were scrambling to fix the issue, began notifying their clients of the firm "experiencing a catastrophic DDoS attack which is being spread across hundreds of different IP addresses in rapid succession, making mitigation extremely difficult".Throughout the next day, Linode servers were bombarded with attacks, with engineers periodically reporting about the Atlanta server "stabilising" only to later report that the attacks had "returned and are significantly impacting connectivity".The constant barrage of attacks severely affected the firm's efforts to mitigate the impact of the cyberattack.
In Part 3 of VB Live s mobile data series, marketing VPs break down how to go beyond value prop and design to amp up engagement, reduce churn, and bring lost sheep back into the fold.Long-term value comes down to a single question: How do we structure the experience for the best results after acquisition?First and foremost you need to establish an engagement goal, because a download — that s not enough.It can be tricky for properties like Expedia, which have both a major website experience as well as an app.But there can be big ways to make the app more compelling, he explains, from leveraging the unique features that a mobile device brings to your users, such as location awareness or social awareness, to incentivizing people to keep engaging with your app by offering accelerated loyalty rewards, discounts, and deals that are only available in the mobile app, versus other spaces on the mobile web.And that s what we ve found over time — by having a very good experience and incentivizing it, your best customers tend to migrate to the app and they stay stickier, longer.

A hacked email from Clinton campaign chair John Podesta s email reveals that as well as the usual sampling of politicians, Hillary was considering tech businesspeople like Tim Cook and Bill Gates for the other spot on her ticket.Cook was on a list of 39 potential candidates, the first cut of potential VPs.The list was sent in an email from Podesta to Clinton on March 17th.DON T MISS: Samsung allegedly tried to bribe a man to keep his exploding Note 7 a secretThe list was split into groups, featuring politicians you ve probably heard of — Tim Kaine, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders !and outsiders, like Cook, Michael Bloomberg and both Bill and Melinda Gates.
Many Facebook users can expect to see more graphic content appearing on their feeds over the next few months.While the social network isn t about to allow images of violence and nudity, it will consider them if they re significant or important to the public interest.In a blog post by two of the company s VPs – Joel Kaplan and Justin Osofsky – Facebook announced it intends to allow more newsworthy images and stories that may violate its terms of service, but without posing safety risks or showing graphic images to minors and others who do not want to see them.The company said it would achieve this by working with its community and partners.The move comes after Facebook endured a barrage of criticism last month for removing the iconic Napalm Girl photo.A Norwegian writer included the image in a post called seven photographs that changed the history of warfare, which resulted in Facebook removing the post and suspending Tom Egeland's account.
Jane, a director of marketing at a SaaS company, eagerly opens the email attachment.She is charged with designing and implementing a content strategy that will grow the startup s user base, and she s relieved to have this first draft—delivered on time—from Dan, a freelance writer she hired to develop blog posts and white papers.Other colleagues promised contributions but haven t had time to follow through.Except, Jane notices with a sinking feeling, Dan quotes her company s competitor and fundamentally misunderstands company positioning.Jane Needs a Managing EditorJane, like many overworked directors and VPs of marketing, is responsible for developing call sheets, kill sheets, landing pages, slide decks, conference presentations and a comprehensive marketing strategy that includes the miracle of free traffic attracted by a steady outflow of valuable content.
The majority of these activists take a go big or go home approach.Brianna Murphy of Trillium Asset Management, Natasha Lamb of Arjuna Capital, and Jesse Cohn of Elliott Management have all seen success with this strategy.Management and boards aren t usually considered activists, but when it comes to fighting for diversity in boards and leadership, many can actually learn from activist strategies.According to the 2016 Women in the Workplace Report, promotion rates for women are far behind those of men, and the disparity is largest at the first step up to manager.For every 100 women promoted, 130 men are promoted.According to recent data from S Global Market Intelligence, about 20 Fortune 500 companies currently have no women on their boards.According to the 2016 Women in the Workplace Report, only 6 percent of VPs, 4 percent of SVPs, and 3 percent of C-Suite positions are held by women of color.
Yesterday I ve seen a forum thread that points to some guys who made millions of Facebook likes and views in matter of 5-6 hours screenshot taken a bit late .You will get the complete spoon-fed method and source code with a live counter that s going to count the real number of votes.I replicated this method like 12 hours ago, after a sleepless night and I m releasing it right after I got up.There s one more day before elections are over, so try to squeeze the more you can out of this method.They took of in matter of hours 5-6 hours for 300k likes and 10M views .You will need Facebook page, a domain with hosting, 0, a Windows/Mac PC or a VPS , a free streaming PC application and browser streaming plugin to stream the voting counter – works only with PC/Mac .
On November 30, public cloud infrastructure provider Amazon Web Services AWS introduced Amazon Lightsail, a service that gives you quick access to a virtual private server VPS .At first glance, the product launch appeared to be an attack on smaller companies that offer low-cost VPS, such as Bluehost, DigitalOcean and Linode.But if you take the service for a spin, it becomes clear that Lightsail is a rethinking of AWS setup process and basic tools.When you go there, AWS shows you a user interface that s very different from the norm.There are bright orange buttons, a Quick Assist drawer on the right that explains what you re looking at, and sometimes even blue boxes that pop up and show you what to click on next.The presentation looks like something a startup would show a new user.The page with steps for setting up a Lightsail box brings together a bunch of tools that are otherwise spread out when you re working with the AWS EC2 computing service.You can either choose a base operating system Amazon Linux or Ubuntu 16.04 LTS or an image on top of an OS.Here, you have a lot fewer options to choose from.It s not as intimidating.Lightsail presents you with a link to open up a text box where you can enter a shell script for your instance, but if you keep scrolling and skip it, you ll be fine.
Let me use last week as a quick example: I spent $2400 on a new tool for our marketing team -- and I didn't have to or want to talk to a sales rep until after I had already given them my credit card.Well because I found out everything I needed to know before making that purchase.I watched videos on their website, read some reviews, and asked two friends.That's how you buy things today too... And this is exactly why we have no patience for pushy, "always be closing" sales reps. We wanted to find out what companies look for in their sales reps today.So we talked to some of the top VPs in SaaS -- from companies like Oracle, InVision, Influitive, Engagio, HubSpot, and more about how they interview sales reps.Here's what they had to say.
I'm in b2b for a startup telemedicine company that sells to HR and VPs of Ops primarily in FLA.
Endurance International Group, a publicly traded company that owns several hosting companies, on January 19 told employees it will close its office in Orem, Utah, resulting in layoffs of employees in accounting, customer support, human resources, and training.The Orem office is home to Bluehost, which hosts more than 2 million websites.Endurance employs more than 3,800 people, with more than 750 Bluehost employees.The layoffs will impact 440 people, an Endurance spokesperson told VentureBeat.The spokesperson described the move as consolidation at its Tempe, Arizona, office in an effort to improve customer support.A year ago Endurance laid off more than 200 people working at Constant Contact, months after buying it.Bluehost offers shared hosting starting at $3.95 a month, virtual private servers VPS starting at $19.99 a month, and dedicated servers starting at $79.99 a month.Managed WordPress hosting is also available, starting at $19.99 a month.
Linode has been in the virtual private server VPS game for longer than most, but in recent years, companies like DigitalOcean and Vultr have taken quite a bit of mindshare from the company.Now it looks like Linode is ready to fight back.The company today announced the launch of a new $5/month plan that offers twice the memory 1 GB of DigitalOcean s and AWS Lightsail s comparable $5 plan.In addition, Linode also launched a number of high-memory instances for application where memory is more important than storage and CPU power.While today s announcement is Valentine s Day-themed, it s probably no surprise Linode announced this new plan today, given that DigitalOcean launched its load balancer this morning as well.Linode already offered this feature, after all, and likely wanted to steal a bit of thunder from its competitor.
