How would your life change if you had a 12-hour work week? Everyone has ‘maintenance’ tasks that they’re responsible for throughout their week. Whether it’s streamlining your agenda, scheduling calls and meetings, even editing and writing. It’s these small details, these little moments, that are the greatest time wasters in our work weeks. So what if you could hire someone who could take over the smaller stuff, and open your time up for the bigger picture?
How does the military approach negative feedback? Performance feedback is imperative to create the kind of team you need to achieve your goals. As an employee, honest feedback (however difficult it may be to hear) is the only way you can improve, learn, and deliver your desired results. One would assume that in an outfit as organized and proactive at the US military, feedback would be simple and direct.
What if the best way to sell isn't actually to sell? We’ve all been sold to. Whether it’s for a car, a cable package, or insurance, it’s easy to feel when you’re getting a “hard sell.” In those instances, we awkwardly attempt to extract ourselves from the aggressive pitch, and run away a fast as our legs can take us. Why? Because when someone tries hard to sell to you, it doesn’t feel genuine. So how can you sell your own idea, service, or company without, well, selling?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
