Twitter Link Roundup #346 – Terrific Reads for Small Business, Entrepreneurs, Marketers, and Designers!

You’re standing in a long line, and you’re dying to cut to the front.

Try using the magic word.

No, it’s not “please”.

In 1978, Harvard professor Ellen Langer found that whenever a “because” is used as a follow up to a request, compliance increases by over 50 percent. That’s a remarkable statistic, especially considering that the because can be followed by something utterly nonsensical.

The next time you want to get someone to do something your way – or get to the front of that line – make sure you’ve got the “because…” at the ready.

Now, we hope you enjoy another great set of links and articles that we shared with you over the past week on our crowdspring Twitter account (and on Ross’s Twitter account). We regularly share our favorite posts on entrepreneurship, small business, marketing, logo design, web design, startups, leadership, social media, marketing, economics and other interesting stuff! Enjoy!
