Biggest Jerk Award Goes to LexisNexis

Update – Sept. 4 – Lexis posted a comment below.

It’s funny how some big companies just don’t understand the internet. And it’s infuriating when they breach simple rules of netiquette. LexisNexis wins the Biggest Jerk Award today.

I linked to Lexis

I wrote an article (Lunch, Break, and Hour Laws) over a year ago that linked to one of Lexis’ products. Ironically, that article is the most popular one on my entire site.

I provided a link to Lexis’ lawyer directory, since I thought it added some value …

1. Buy single chapters. Why buy the whole book, if you only need part of it? iChapters

Branding Strategy Should Be Consistent

Is your branding strategy consistent? BMW of Charlottesville certainly doesn’t have a consistent branding strategy. Their courtesy vehicle is a Honda. Do you see a problem here?

Consistent branding

If I owned a car dealership, all vehicles on the premises would be of the type I sold. They’d all be spotlessly clean.

Don’t most dealers do this anyway? They give demo cars to their salesmen. They use the brand’s van or SVU for their courtesy car. I’m not sure how this BMW dealer missed …

My DYMO labeler was sent to me to review on this very blog, and I still use it at least once a week in …

Cheap College Books – NOT at Campus Bookstore

College and graduate school classes are starting soon. Have you bought your books?

If not, don’t use the campus bookstore.

You can find cheap college books in many places, other than the single store your university is hoping you’ll use. Since you’re already living on a shoestring budget, you need to save money wherever possible. Buying used, cheap textbooks is a great way to cut your educational costs.

Cheap book websites

BookByte is my favorite used book website. They have a huge selection of books, and they …


Free Business Card Ideas on Flickr

I absolutely love business card ideas. I will soon be hiring a local design firm to create my logo and come up with some spiffy business cards. So it’s time to start hunting for examples of business cards that I like.

If you’re looking for some quick, free business card inspiration, I highly recommend Flickr. People love taking pictures of their spiffy cards and posting them for the world to see. Many of the Flickr business card images are of MOO cards, but that’s ok. It’s easy enough to filter through those and …
