How do you use Inbound.org at work? And what can we do to make it easier to use at work?
We've been thinking how we can make Inbound.org super-useful within companies to help share knowledge and tools within agencies but also help in-house marketers share content with other teams.
For instance, the ability to "flag" an article, discussion or tool to your company, and that gets spun out through your Yammer, Google Apps or whatever internal communications system you use.
You could build your own private set of upvotes and bookmarks, but then also access to company upvotes and bookmarks. What do you think?
We'd love to hear your thoughts and ideas how we can make sharing between colleagues easier, but also how you use it currently in your workplace. How can we help make it better?
As far as I know, I'm the only person in our 9 1/2 person outfit that follows inbound.org. I share articles I find here with them, primarily via email, with them.
2 things I'd like most to share with them more easily and raise their awareness of inbound.org are:
* ability to directly DM a link via Twitter to them in one click
* ability to send them a notification via Google Talk in one click
Email notifications are coming, so that could be a smart way to get them involved without interrupting their workflow.
Twitter: you can use the "tweet" buttons and just @ each of them. I guess that's a pain to do again and again...
At first glance there's no official documentation for a 'click to send a DM'.
Google Talk integration sounds like a smart idea!
I keep inbound.org open in a tab most days and refresh it regularly to tot up my comment upvotes. I find I am most productive at work on the days I get at least three comment upvotes as these inflate my ego and allow me to perform with the sense of smug self-satisfaction that drives my best work.
Awesome. Just upvoted your comment :)
I'd love the have a post organisation/bookmark function, something like Pinterest perhaps. This way you can create a board and add SEO-related articles, add linkbuilding articles to another board, etc. Would be great if you could shares these boards with collegues.
