The Internet is a wonderful thing…when it works. Early on, finding anything I wanted on the internet seemed like a miracle. Curious about blogs. Search blogs and up pops articles and tools about blogging. Curious about how mediation is used by corporations? Blam….there it is. Having more information than would normally be available in a convenient way-right at my fingertips- was very exhilarating. I bet you felt the same way. Now, as the internet has evolved, things have changed. And, that’s the understatement. It kinda feels like a dirty trick. Just when I get the hang of search I discover so much information- broad, narrow, useful and superfluous- that it’s overwhelming. I’m managing to keep the lid on information overload and find the very best bits of marketing news, advice and tools. Of course, you’re the first person I thought of telling. Mediators need tech tools! Solo practitioner- if you’re not using online tools to help increase productivity, market more effective and how some fun, you’re working way too hard. Really. Here are a couple to lifesavers I came across recently that can help you spend less time working to attract clients and more time mediating.
A great big thanks to Copyblogger for reminding me to share what I find by linking to others. Speaking of which, if you missed the Conflict Resolution Day celebration you’re in luck. A brief summary is available at www.adrpracticebuilder.com/heather.html
