Vanessa’s Variety for the Week of January 23rd, 2009

Posted on January 23, 2009 by Vanessa

This week’s review of eCommerce and entrepreneurship articles:

  • Brian Eisenberg posted a list of resources that his team views as invaluable to becoming a conversion analyst.  The list isn’t really limited to conversion analysts and encompasses various areas of eCommerce.
  • There are more than one billion internet users worldwide, according to comScore!
  • Ogihara Corp., an auto parts supplier for U.S. carmakers would not have been able to implement a Product Lifecycle Management system, had it not been for Aras Corp. and their open source offering.  As the economy continues to decline other vendors may have to do the same. ..
  • Jeremiah Andrick of Microsoft’s Live Search Blog posted part one of his series “Optimizing your very large site for search – Part 1”.  While I am not sure if Live Search is the best teacher on the subject, his points are worth reviewing.
  • If you haven’t heard of McKay Hatch, it’s likely that you will given the press he has been receiving lately.  Hatch is the founder of the No Cussing Club, a club that he started when he was in 8th grade by handing out fliers that encouraged his peers to use their words for good and recognize how often they were using cuss words in their conversations.  Members, of which there are now more than 30,000 of and span worldwide, make a commitment to the no cussing challenge and try to “Leave people better than they found them”.  While the internet has had a huge impact on the club’s growth and success it has also contributed to a campaign, sparked by those against McKay’s beliefs, to bully McKay into taking the site down.
