Divas, Downtime and Dear Jane: August 11, 2008 Week in Review

Searches Arriving On One Degree This Week
needs Google Trends when you can look at our analytics and see what’s
popular – or not so much popular as … kinda weird.  Searches that led
people to One Degree this week:

  • scotiabank podcasts (what do you need to know about podcasts?)
  • "holiday email marketing" (speaking of which – have you started planning your holiday campaigns yet?!)
  • burton cummings
  • eatons mail order farmhouses
  • "what is it called when you are afraid of crowds" (Ask Monica Hamburg)

New Contributors This Week

  • CT Moore actually contributed his first article to One
    Degree just before our summer hiatus.  So we’re taking this opportunity
    to say "Welcome!" with his latest piece (first in a four part series) on affiliate marketing.
    CT works for a Montreal-based retail affiliate network, and we’re
    looking forward to him providing the inside scoop on affiliates and
    this rising marketing program.

This Friday’s Timewasting Activity

  • Last night on Twitter there was a flutter of tweets about Face Your Manga – a website where you can create a mangaesque avatar for your various social media profiles.  Tired of that self-portrait of you at Starbucks?  Try this for a change.

    Congratulations on One Degree making the Spotlight Ideas Top 20. How modest of you to omit My Name is Kate from the digital marketing category. Congratulations to the other Canadian blogs as well.
    Week in Review is a great column. Please keep it up.
    Oh yes, and before I forget, thanks for mentioning Community Divas. Without sounding repetitive, I want to echo Connie’s invitation to members of the One Degree community.
