    If you find this blog interesting, and either have an interest in or work in data protection/backup and recovery environments, you should check out my book, Enterprise Systems Backup and Recovery: A Corporate Insurance Policy. Designed for system administrators and managers alike, it focuses on features, policies, procedures and the human element to ensuring that your company has a suitable and working backup system rather than just a bunch of copies made by unrelated software, hardware and processes.

Aside – Marketing

Posted by Preston on 2009-05-11

I periodically spend Sunday mornings and other quiet times delving through the articles pointed to by undrln.

One that caught my attention a while ago that I was greatly impressed with was “Stop acting like a sissy and market your company“. Having previously worked for a company that almost religiously insisted on word-of-mouth advertising only which subsequently went under*, I can appreciate this blunt, matter-of-fact advice even more so.

It’s a fascinating read.


* I’m not claiming that was the only reason it went under, or indeed the primary reason it went under, but it was certainly a contributing factor.
