Twitter Link Roundup #165 – Small Business, Social Media, Design, Copywriting, Marketing And More Ross | February 8th, 2013

Every day on the crowdSPRING Twitter account and on my own Twitter account, I post links to posts or videos I enjoyed reading or viewing. These posts and videos are about logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, and more! Here are some of the links that I’ve liked and shared this past week!

One of the most talked about ads from last week’s Super Bowl was from Go Daddy (above). On the strength of that ad, Go Daddy had its biggest sales day ever. Interestingly, the actors had to do 43 takes for their kiss. Actor Jesse Heiman thought he was a very lucky guy to share the spotlight with Victoria’s Secret model Bar Refaeli. That’s an understatement.
