Sometimes it’s good to get feedback straight from the horse’s mouth — namely, your customers and clients. But doing so via email can be a pain to organize and manage; that’s why the five solutions in this post can be useful if you want to get feedback about your products, services or even your organization in general.

Not so much a marketing and communications blog post but a comment on British situation comedy, broadcasting and how we as individuals have changed over the last generation. This was inspired by a blog post on BBC Writersroom by Michael Jacob, a leading comedy bod at the Beeb. In it he refers to a new sitcom called Big Top and says:
As is traditional with virtually every new BBC1 sitcom, Big Top has received a massive critical kicking, both in newspapers and on writers’ forums. I can never quite understand the snobbishness of aspiring comedy writers, who tend to unite in loathing any show which is popular with audiences. Two Pints and My Family spring immediately to mind.
Personally I cannot comment on this particular show as I haven’t seen it but I found what he said and the way he said it particulalrly interesting. I understand what Michael Jacob is getting at and I agree with him to a point but I think there is far more to this story than there is at first glance.

A very interesting site has just been brought to my attention called Live Person.
If you need advice on a particular subject there are dozens (if not hundreds) of experts available to chat with instantly with your question. Initially the service is available free to try but payment is nominal after that.
For instance, if you had query on personal development, you follow the menu bar link where a list of experts are online to help. Many are available to speak to for as little as $0.50 per minute but the increases to over $10 depending on the individual or service offered.
You can register to become an expert for free but note that Apple is not supported at present. Please read their system requirements.
I recommend you take a look as none of us are experts at everything. It is certainly worth considering as a way of saving time rather than looking aimlessly for information via web searches.
For your benefit I have added the Live Person link to the Blogroll in the right hand menu bar.
