What Makes a Good blyDEA a Good #blyDEA
Since we started the ‘big #blyDEA,’ many of you have asked what exactly a blyDEA is. Simply put, it’s anything you’d like it to be – anything appropriate and worth sharing to the business community that is. In fact, there just happens to be an article that outlines exactly what we hope to accomplish by sharing blyDEAs and how to use the hashtag if you are unfamiliar. Check out the article here.
The idea behind sharing blyDEAs (no pun intended) is to enlighten the community with thoughts, opinions, or suggestions that others might find useful in their everyday professional lives. It could be on topics like: tips to improve your ERP strategy, the importance of mobility to CRM, which mobile platform you should be using on your mobile device, or even ways to protect your fruit from being damaged. The choice is truly yours.
So, what’s the benefit of sharing your blyDEAs? Besides enlightening your peers? Well, from now until August 10th, the most interesting and/or compelling blyDEA will be chosen each week, and the winner gets a free blog-vertisement! This could be in the form of an ad on our blog, or your very own written (by our expert writers if you so desire) blog article that can help direct traffic back to you and your website.
Better yet, if you’re going to Sage Summit, you’ll get the opportunity to share your blyDEAs there and enter to win a special grand prize. Pretty neat huh!? So what makes a good blyDEA a good blyDEA? Is it doing something because its popular at the time, or being the first to do something by setting the trend? Or maybe it’s actually adhering to the feedback you get from your customers directly or socially and by using this info to create something spectacular? What do you think?
