Frank Patrick's Focused Performance Business Blog

Think of it as about Focusing marketing messages for enhanced Performance. If you are on an archive page, current postings are found here.

So Many Links - So Little Time -- It's link-a-palooza time...
  • What Would Google Do? - The PowerPoint - excerpts from the book.

  • Epiphany: Virtual Teams And Social Media Tribes Are The Same - Yup. That they are, but only if the tribes have some sort of goal that ties them together.

  • 2009 - The Year of SMS, Again - An underrated, under-appreciated, underused channel for communication with your customers.

  • again mobile - Where I'm at these days, working on SMS text campaigns, "mobilizing" web sites, and iPhone/smartphone apps.

  • Mobile Couponing - The Time Could Be Now... - From Mark Taylor, my previous boss' boss' boss.

  • Top 10 Dumb Project Management Questions - Questions from Hal Macomber.

  • Dumb Project Management Questions - Glen Alleman provides some answers to Hal's questions.

  • Why You Shouldn't Copy Us Or Anyone Else - A nice piece related to one of my favorite pet peeve subjects (no, not multi-tasking) - the lack of value in benchmarking and following others' "best practices".

  • Which Comes First? The Product or the Marketing? - From Seth Godin - "Marketing is not the same thing as advertising." True, very true. (My take on shooting sitting ducks from 2006.)

  • Rocks Into Gold - A parable for our time from long-time blog buddy Clarke Ching.

  • Sopranos, Uncensored - NSFW - A little diversion featuring very bit of foul language from every episode of HBO's classic series, but not including the curses coming from the audience at the end of the final episode, when they thought their cable had gone out at the most inopportune moment possible. Someone somewhere has too much time on their hands. Surprised, though, that it's only 27 minutes long.

  • The Human Feed - How Twitter and Networks Filter Signal from Noise

  • The New Work Ethic: Just Paying Attention - Your knew I couldn't finish a list like this one without an anti-multi-tasking link? Of course you did.
  • There's more in the queue, but that's enough for now.
