Bye Bye :(

This is sadly our final post of the summer.  Shelby and Kelly will be splitting up for us to go back to our respective colleges.  In our last message to you all, we figured we would revisit our intentions for this summer.  Originally we planned to:

  1. Find 750 new leads for Blue Corona and send them all contact cards—We did it! and many, many, many more!!!!
  2. Make 16 Competitive Analysis Reports of industries that could benefit from online marketing, analytics, and optimization (leave us a comment or email us if you want to be one of the industries or companies studied!)—As with all plans, sometimes things change.  We worked on other projects after Ben and we decided our work would be best utilized elsewhere.
  3. Update this blog at least 3 times a week—If you regularly followed us, you’d know we did this one!
  4. Tweet once a day (Follow us at BlueCoronaKandS)–let us know if you have a cool twitter that you think we could benefit from following–Tweet tweet! We may not have tweeted once every day but we definitely did almost every single day—and we expanded our followers greatly.
  5. Add a video produced by us biweekly emphasizing the importance of internet and online marketing knowledge–whoops…this goal we really failed on…but Seth Godin taught us that some failure in life is a good thing (see our prior posts for explanation).

Overall, we loved sharing our thoughts and work with you all summer long.  We had an amazing internship experience at Blue Corona and learned a ton of new skills!  It’s sad for us to see the summer gone but we are looking forward to heading back to the classroom in the fall.  Thanks for sharing our summer experience with us!!

LinkedIn or Linked-Out

While spending some time viewing social media sites over the past couple of days, we learned that 90% of businesses are now recruiting off of LinkedIn!  We had no idea how severely the job recruitment process had shifted and immediately made ourselves part of the LinkedIn community.  We found it very interesting that less than 20% of the graduating classes at both of our universities were present on LinkedIn.  Are people scared to embrace social media, think its silly, or simply just don’t know about it?  After viewing the video we posted in our last update, we know that they all better get with it or risk being Linked-Out.

Mother may I take two baby steps?

Hello all of our thousands of visitors! (I’m kidding obviously- althought there were 16 of you today!)  It’s been a weird week for me so far sitting alone by the window without Shelby! So far this week, I’ve learned that it’s much easier to get things done when there are 2 heads instead of one! I was drafting a letter today and kept wishing that I had someone else to tell me how they thought a sentence started.  I actually contemplated bugging Shelby on vacation to read it for me…but I decided against that.

Life Without Shelby Day 2

In Uncategorized on June 14, 2010 at 8:47 pm

It’s amazing how much easier it is to focus on Mondays than on Fridays!  Today, I got into the office around 8:30 and went to my usual seat (it’s nice because currently Shelby and I have window desks).  Shelby and I have had some computer issues the past few days so I spent most of my morning catching up on sending things out before taking a break for my taco salad (yum!) for lunch.  I returned this afternoon to work on some more stuff and review a website that Blue Corona is getting ready to launch!  I also had time to work on a manual that Shelby and I have started on.  We have been creating a helpful manual of all the work we do so that future interns will be able to catch up quickly!  That’s all for today (I’m less creative solo)
