February 18, 2014 | Terry Luschen: Calling One Salesforce Batch Job From Another Batch Job
Eat an elephant one bite at a time? Small, small catch monkey? Sometimes it is best to break up complex logic into simpler parts.
February 13, 2014 | Rob Burke: Giving your talents to those in need
I am as guilty of this as the next. You build your career around what you are good at. You have paid dearly to be taught. You have worked hard to make a profit off of your talent; to finally start earning something back for all of your hard work. The last thing we want to do is to give away what we’ve worked so hard at achieving.
February 12, 2014 | Alyssa Greve: Tips and tricks to finding relevant conversations in Radian6
The first step in Radian6 is to setup the keyword configuration as detailed as possible into multiple Topic Profiles. This allows for multiple comparisons of categories when analyzing Keyword Groups. If you only have one Topic Profile and hundreds of keywords in a few Keyword Groups, it can be difficult to analyze multiple conversations. Make sure to categorize each Keyword Group as a Brand, Competitor or Industry. This helps break items down into the three main groups when conducting research.
February 12, 2014 | Alyssa Greve: Providing Value to Your Communities
I recently read two articles from different industries about sharing information, tips and secrets online. This made me think about how content sharing is becoming a big part of the social world and is key to capturing your audience. For instance, why would Lowe’s want to share tips on how to make a milk jug into a watering can when they SELL watering cans? Or, why would a talented photographer want to write about the tricks she uses during photo sessions in a blog? It’s because they understand providing great content can build relationships in the right space.

February 06, 2014 | Dani Krolak: SUNDOG SPOTLIGHT: ZACH
In this edition of the Sundog Spotlight we look behind the screens at another new Sundogger, who has already participated in marketing strategy meetings at each of our locations in his few short weeks on board. Let me introduce this Iowa native who was surprised to learn that the Red River actually flows north: Zach Johnson.
February 05, 2014 | Lynlee Espeseth: How Did Super Bowl Ads Do With Women?
The stereotypical view of football has never had much to do with women, unless they made an appearance to force their husbands to turn off the TV and go grocery shopping. Recently, however, it’s become obvious that women watch football too (which shouldn’t really be so shocking), and that not acknowledging this is a pretty big marketing fail.
February 04, 2014 | Craig Isakson: JSON Generator for Apex in Salesforce
JSON is great for passing data from here to there and there to here. For the most part there are a lot of different tools and libraries that exist for dealing with JSON for different platforms like Android/Java and iOS/Objective-C.
January 31, 2014 | Alyssa Greve: Sales and LinkedIn
In preparation for this blog, I interviewed a few people inside sales positions to see how they are currently using LinkedIn as a professional tool. Let’s take another look at how social tools can be used in a professional setting to drive connections, map relationships and find new opportunities.
January 31, 2014 | Susanna Oliver: HTML Email: 2013 In Review
The year 2013 could be summarized as “Year of the Mobile” since mobile devices surpassed desktop email opens to capture 50% of the emails opened according to Litmus. Mobile started out in January of 2013 with 42% and finished in December with 51%. While most emails were opened on iPhone or other iOS devices, Android’s popularity soared by 57% in 2013.
January 31, 2014 | Greg Ewing Lee: Create an owner AND criteria-based sharing rule
When setting up a sharing rule in Salesforce, one must decide whether their sharing rule is going to be “Owner-based” or “Criteria-based”. However, what about a scenario in which the company wishes to share records based on BOTH the owner and some other data element? Fortunately, there is a fairly easy way to accommodate this requirement with the help of custom fields and workflow rules.
