Research

Spent a chunk of today doing research online for two projects.
Used some sites I haven’t worked with before with some good results:
1) Looksmart’s new articles function–this search site has a find articles focus that turned up data I couldn’t get via Google (probably buried in the results).
2) PR Newswire for Journalists–permits searching by keyword and date range; supports full-text searches
I also spent time at the usual: eMarketer, Mediapost, MarketingWonk. And CNET and News.com, of course.
Found a ton of information and ended up cutting and paste too much of it to save it. Made me wish this blog had categorization, so I could put the links in there–made me think I will probably start a research blog and use that as my personal filing cabinet for data for a while.
