As we’ve seen, a single tweet can cause share prices to plummet, while a genuinely empathetic YouTube apology has become a strategic element of saving face in the midst of a PR nightmare. With nearly two billion users worldwide, social media has become an invaluable – and inescapable – corporate tool for everything from brand building and custo...

If you're running a #sales team, you have a lot to think about as you manage current prospects and future deals. It can be difficult to correctly forecast successful deals and manage time. Here are some tips that can help.

1.) Create a cadence that works for you in managing current prospects and allocating the right amount of resources to particular leads.
2.) In your weekly meetings, stay up to date on what's changing or not changing in your teams "must win" deals.

By Robert Russo, co-founder of Keycode.com To reiterate my maxims about social media, which you can read here and here, business owners have an obligation to dialogue with consumers: They must initiate a discussion, not dictate orders to customers to buy this or do that – to Act now, while supplies last – and forgo the respect these men and women deserve to receive.
