August 29, 2014 | Craig Isakson: Calling RESTful Services on Salesforce Through the Native iOS SDK
Salesforce does a lot of awesome things that help a developer work on getting stuff done rather than setting stuff up. It is one of the reasons why I like the platform.

August 25, 2014 | Alyssa Greve: Social Media Audits and why they’re important
One of the first things that must be done is a social media audit when starting to look at your social strategy. A social media audit is where we take a look at the current social channels and accounts associated with your brand and the plan behind each one. We also review how each channel is supported and who is engaging with each community. This gives us a larger vision to see how social media is managed internally and how it has grown over the past few years.

We understand well how to make a custom button interact with a Visualforce page on the standard page layouts in a desktop browser. But how do we do that same functionality in Salesforce1?
August 22, 2014 | Alyssa Greve: Keeping Up with the Social Industry
One important role of the community manager is to stay up to date on the social industry topics and trends. I often use the tool feedly.com to keep track of the latest posts from my favorite blogs. As I share these favorite blogs with you, keep in mind you should also follow content related to your industry in addition to social media trends. This will help you stay knowledgeable of current news and how they could potentially impact your brand.

Think back to the last AMAZING brand experience you had. That wasn’t an accident. Someone or some team carefully crafted that experience from start to finish, and they did good enough work that it impacted you. Now think back to a HORRIBLE brand experience you had. Someone or some team haphazardly (if at all) “crafted” that experience – with a lack of customer empathy.
