“Be Unapologetically Focused: Why Having a Great Strategy Matters,” by William Allen, posted on 99U: None of us have enough time to get everything done that we want to get done. In this article, Allen writes about how a well-defined strategy allows people to focus on core issues and properly prioritize projects. I particulary like how Allen points out, “Developing and implementing a strategy means battling our natural tendencies to say ‘yes’ to everything, denying the very real appeal of being a generalist.”

“30 Digital Marketing Statistics You Can’t Afford To Ignore,” by Shea Bennett, posted on Media Bistro’s All Twitter: Infographic time! This infographic has some great data about email marketing, blogging, and video content. Those of us in A/E/C can mostly ignore the product/shopping tips.

“20 Best Practices for AEC Proposals: Part 3” by Kate Erdy: I know, I know, I’m stalking Kate Erdy online. But I can’t help it – she has great ideas and information. I posted about Parts I & II last month, and now she’s on to Part III, where she covers content development.

“How to Use Photoshop: The Ultimate Guide for the Design-Impaired Marketer,” by Desmond Wong, posted on HubSpot’s blog: When checking out HubSpot’s archives, I found this article from January with great tips for marketers who find themselves “doing” graphic design with no training or background. There are some great tips in here!
