I “love” Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. They make it quite easy for me to connect with those in my professional circle (and just friends) and get insight from them on things they find of interest on the Internet.
The CHALLENGE is keeping track of the incoming emails and alerts from these, and maybe for you, other, services. What to do?
TweetDeck lets me receive and send Facebook and Twitter updates, all from one email.
But guess what? I’m an email person. I don’t like going to web sites for “social updates”. What I prefer is to receive information via email, the way everything else is sent.
A new service, NutshellMail sends updates on a variety of social network services, including Yahoo and Gmail email via email.
NutShellMail writes that While other tools are built only for real-time power users and require a software download or visit to yet another Website, NutshellMail allows users to interact with friends across all their social networks and email accounts (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, MySpace, etc.) through an easy-to-use interactive dashboard delivered in the format they already know well: email.
What does this mean to you?
It means that as you leverage technology you might need to have ancillary products or services that can enhance the core ones you use.
Twitter, for example, is great. However, to make it even better there are dozens (or more) of services that can enhance its communication and make it a more productive and powerful business tool for your business.
With your daily intake of email, phone calls, meetings, luncheons and other things, keeping track of the business dimensions of your social media networks (forget your personal stuff) can be difficult. This is why it’s important to find and use tools that can help you.
