NAMPRadio Recommends

  • Matt recommends: Seth Godin mentioned: -- repository of 100,000+ "classic" advertisements -- it's searchable by keywords and themes. Good source of ideas for artwork/campaigns.
  • Ron recommends: Amazon's Kindle -- it's easy to read books on it, many books are available for instant download, and the ability to search for specific keywords anywhere in your book is phenomenal. Listen to the podcast to hear about Matt's low-tech version of the Kindle. :(
  • David recommends: -- site that shows you information about your twitter account including things like your "reach" which is how often people retweet you, what subjects rise to the top, etc. Helps you to measure your Twitter effectiveness.
  • Maris recommends: -- free trial or light subscription to test your email template in all the major email clients, so you can see how it looks and make adjustments to your templates.
