Daily Roundup for 2008-01-20

  • First, know that the 250 links will come over time – it’s not a one time event. It is actually a pretty simple strategy and will have more benefits than just getting inbound links. I am referring to the practice of strategically commenting on blogs.
  • There are a lot of companies that will happily relieve you of your dollars, in exchange for buzz monitoring services. While many large companies will enjoy the peace of mind that comes from having a company track their reputation for them, the rest of us need something a little less expensive–or better yet, free!

  • An online pitch and diligence room can save you a lot of headaches and time by getting ready up front… As a general rule of thumb, it is best to pitch as many venture firms in as little time as possible, and then aggressively follow-up with the best leads. Once you have interest, you need to get information out quickly. Here are some pointers for generating interest and syndicating materials by leveraging online resources.
  • We think a lot about getting new gadgets, but not so much about getting rid of old ones. The result: old cell phones, defunct laser printers and Pentium III computers gathering dust. A couple companies want to help us clear out those old gadgets, while feeding our upgrade habit, helping the environment and making a buck for themselves. Instead of being hit up for an extended warranty next time you buy a gadget, you may find yourself hearing a pitch from TechForward Inc., a Los Angeles-based company selling a ”guaranteed” buyback plan for electronics.
