Nametag expert blog inspires
Scott Ginsberg, the world's foremost expert on nametags, has an inspiring blog. And his blog is going to be at the top of a new sidebar list I'm developing called "Daily Must-Reads". You really ought to consider getting to know this blog, for it's entertaining content, valuable ideas, and excellant writing.
Imagine: people hating and attacking someone, just because he wears a nametag 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, everywhere he goes.
Imagine: taking a simple little thing like a nametag, and building a life philosophy around it.
Imagine: using an inexpensive nametag as a powerful marketing tool.
Behold the power of seemingly "insignificant" things.
Scott Ginsberg, "the nametag guy", publishes a blog, Hello my name is Scott, that I plan to visit more often, and more regularly.
He's similar to me, and the opposite of me, simultaneously. His marketing ideas are similar to mine, but he's nicer than me, and his posts are generally more positive than mine. My posts tend to be critical, complaining, and warning of negative developments and detrimental trends.
Some remarkable, witty, and informative posts:
* The origination of the handshake
* Are you different or unique?
* Does online social networking actually work?
* Not even the windy city can blow this nametag away
* 5 Exercises to Enhance Your Personal Expertise
* What the heck does "approachability" mean?
* American Foundation for the Blind evaluates blogging
Read astonishing tales of what happens when he wears his nametag in environments that are hostile to anyone who dares to be "different". Such as bars and nightclubs, or baseball games.
Highly recommended, greatly satisfying, clever and edifying, the blogosphere needs more blogs like Scott Ginsberg's. Thanks, Scott for enriching our lives and improving our business acumen.
Visit his blog today, and consider both blogrolling it, and posting something about what you liked or learned in one of his posts.
He is worthy of such attention, and I'm sure he'll appreciate the praise.
Scott also has two published books available:
(1) Hello, My Name is Scott: wearing nametags for a friendlier society
(2) The Power of Approachability
See his site for more details.
Also see my earlier post, Scott Ginsberg: Nametag as Marketing Strategy, which contains a full text by Scott, in which he explains his innovative Nametag Philosophy:
