AGORACOM Client Intelligence Report – April 2009

Posted by AGORACOM - Mitch at 11:00 AM on Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

We’re pleased to provide you with the April 2009 edition of the AGORACOM Client Intelligence Report. For confidentiality reasons, all “Off The Blog” items mentioned in these reports are not mentioned in the blog posts.

WHY AN “INTELLIGENCE REPORT”

For the benefit of our new clients, we call this an “Intelligence Report” because it provides you with important information, data and trends that impact your business – information that you normally don’t have time to find.  We often write about these in The AGORACOM Blog, so we call these “On The Blog” Stories.  In addition, this newsletter gives you a chance to look into our crystal ball and know what AGORACOM is working on months before the general public.  You can’t find these tidbits on our blog, so we call them “Off The Blog” and ask that you keep them confidential.  As you know, we move faster than any IR firm on the planet, so knowing what we’re doing in advance helps both of us coordinate our activities.  This is especially true for what we expect to be an extremely fast moving and exciting year.

In short, greater market intelligence that puts you ahead of all of your peers.

I can’t stress enough my recommendation that you review our monthly newsletter carefully for the purposes of incorporating some of our market intelligence into both your IR and business initiatives.

AGORACOM is now the largest small-cap IR firm and site on the continent thanks to our effective use of web technology.  As such, following us will help you achieve your goals.

OFF THE BLOG … Shhhhh

    Irish, you need to take a minute to actually look at the sources within each category. For example, Wall Street Journal (millionaires trading online) and Harvard Business Blog (shareholder communities) should have been pretty obvious from either the titles or a quick read of the post – and I think they count as “reputable sources”.

    A little less cynicism and a little more homework please.

    Regards,
    George

    A fantastic read for anyone running a small cap company, or any public company for that matter. It’s a shame so many pubco’s are run by dinosaurs that have either lost touch or never accepted todays technology and trends.

  3. Luck of the Irish says:

    Information is only as good as the source. Just what is/are these sources? IF it’s from an objective, third party reputable source with an incredible track record… great.. I’m tuned it. If it’s from Joe at the bar or some other agency that has an ulterior motive (ie selling its newsletter, selling its stock, etc), then I’ll pass, thanks anyway….

  4. JC says:

    A very worthwhile read for the purpose of gaining market intelligence within the small cap world. The shift in preferred medium is so blatantly obvious that those who choose not to conform will be left in the dust.

    George.

    Keep sending, if not repeating the message to Clients about the right time(s) to put out news. Too many firms attempt to time the open and it often results in their story being drowned out by the rest of the market. Companies need to respect the time before the open and the impact it has on hardened decision makers and not rely on momentum players for short term price swings, which usually have no lasting fundamental impact past the day of the release.

    Cheers, Eric

    Good strategy bringing the stock boards to Twitter George. Twitter is the way of the future and that combination will brings even more eyes to the boards.
