Copyblogger Weekly

Hey there — welcome back to the Copyblogger Weekly!

I’m writing this the night before I fly back home from Denver, Colorado, where we held our live Digital Commerce Summit last week. I had the pleasure of teaching a small workshop on Wednesday and then switching gears to give a conference keynote on Thursday.

Every time we hold a live event, big or small, I’m struck by the sense of community that comes together around Copyblogger and Rainmaker. Whether we were hollering our heads off singing together (just a few feet from the stage) at the CAKE concert or feverishly taking notes at 8:30 in the morning during Brian Clark’s talk on “what comes next” in digital commerce, the Summit brought us together to take the next step.

This week, I had fun listening to our own Brian Gardner and Lauren Mancke talk with Matt Mullenweg — the founder of WordPress — about the evolution of that community. It’s a fascinating conversation — and interesting to hear what Matt thinks about the WordPress community nurturing such a thriving economic ecosystem.

And if you’re interested in some other ways togetherness can play a part in business, you might take a look at my post from Tuesday, where I dig into the Unity principle from Robert Cialdini’s new book.

Hope you enjoy this week’s content, and I’ll catch you next week!

    Hey Sonia,
    In business, the products that have the best user experience usually end up winning. The products that are so intuitive that you don’t need to open up a manual to learn how to operate it. In the eCommerce world, things like product selection, pricing, shipping, and customer service all play an important role in the customer experience.The future of eCommerce will have more personalization. DCA is really sounds effective for enhancement of eCommerce. Eventually, thanks for your continuous support.
    With best wishes,
    Amar kumar

  2. I like the bootstrapped projects. I think they are the future. The projects with financial people are almost all very speculative.
