Marketing Titbits – an unusual job on LinkedIn, what makes companies great and Trello

Pope Job advertised on LinkedIn

If proof be needed that LinkedIn has become a fixture of the global business community, the fact that the recently vacant position of Pope was advertised on the social media site should be evidence enough.

There is some question as to the authenticity of the position, not least around thepapalheadhunter@gmail.com email address you are requested to contact to express interest in the role. We; however, would like to think that it is genuine. 🙂

 

‘Good to Great – Why some companies make the leap and others don’t’

For anyone interested in understanding why some companies excel whilst others are merely good, this must-read book gives readers an insight into the research findings uncovered by Jim Collins and his team when analysing over 1,435 companies.

The book gives readers a route they can follow with their company to unlock its potential and be the best it can be. If you are a business owner or involved in growing a business, we think reading this is a must.

Trello

Trello is an app for collaborating on to-do lists and projects. It’s a great little free app we’ve found, which is available on PCs and via your Android or iPhone mobile / tablet. It is ideal to use when working alone or jointly on a project, allowing individuals to stay organised and teams to easily collaborate remotely on tasks and activities.

Described as ‘a whiteboard with superpowers’, we’d strongly recommend you take a look at this free app, which lets you:

  • List, manage and collaborate on tasks
  • Create checklists
  • Assign task responsibility and deadlines
  • Add images and attachments to projects
