I was looking at both of them as I’m a Solution Provider for ConstantContact (one of a few partnerships) yet I wanted to see how Mailchimp integrates with Nimble.
I partnered with Nimble as it is the only solution on the market that integrates the “4 Cs” — contacts, calendar, communications and collaboration: Social Media, Email, and Address Book all in one place.
I can tag a list of my contacts in Nimble and have their information sent to Mailchimp- so that I can then create an email campaign that goes out only to that list.
So I’m in there playing with my lead generation systems and on the top right is that Monkey. “jenn, sometimes you just need to xpress yourself…” with a link to a funny monkey video on youtube. Yeah – I could not help but click on the link.
Well after watching, I stumbled upon the one shared above. I like how that works….
Creating this blog lead me to more goodies that are worth exploring.
I ask you “Would you want the cake if it did not come with icing?” My Daughter’s immediate response is “NO!”
However responses vary as much as individuals do.
just give me the icing
cake over icing
depends on the cake
depends on the icing
icing is too sweet
However, if I liken the writing of a book to a “cake” and bestseller status to the “icing” and ask Writers/Authors alone, they want the “icing” on their “cake”.
It’s as if the cake is not finished with out the icing.
There are even those that will make and remake their cake- to get the icing that says the cake is finished properly.
If the book is the cake (substance) does the icing (bestseller status) determine if the cake is worth eating (reading)? For some it does.
For some Writers/Authors it is not enough to have written the book – they need the icing (bestseller status) or they feel the cake (book) is not finished. The icing is like a crown that sits a top the cake.
Writers/Authors – I have a few questions to ask you….
You wrote the book to share a message with the hope that it would help or entertain others, correct?
Does bestseller status mean that it reaches more people?
Does it mean that your book made money?
Does the type of icing really matter or will any icing do?
What length would you go to – to make sure that your cake had just the right icing?

Have you ever had someone introduce themselves to you – in one of these ways?
Guess What!? It doesn’t work with me. Does it work with you?
Couple things – You are asking someone for their time, which is limited and You are asking for their social capital – which is invaluable.
Instead of making a mess out of the introduction, Here are some tips:
