We scour Twitter for interesting tweets, so you don’t have to!
We Really Dumb it Down for You! Well, it’s not that you’re too dumb for social media — we all are. We listened to way too many “experts” about the best times to post, what to post, where to post and why to post content, but the one thing they never go into is that […]
Chances are, one of your new year’s resolutions was to increase your business. Stopping something, like smoking, or drinking are hard enough… and who would want to stop? But I digress. STARTING something is very hard. You have no road map for success and have usually jumped into it without the proper planning. Well, in […]
Your brand is your personality. It’s how others see your company as a person — someone with whom a consumer can identify, and think of as a friend. As with life, your brand will be stalked by those who take that friendship for the identity to a weird, creepy level.
The web evolves almost daily, with new tips and tricks… and rules for SEO, as well as new social media platforms. There was a time that MySpace was the must-be-on platform, and Twitter confused people who wondered how anyone could communicate anything in 140 characters, or less. With new platforms that are image and video-centric, […]
Social media is still a greatly misunderstood part of business, as hard as that is to believe. It’s hard to believe that as little as two years ago, companies were rife with arguments about which department would control the social media outreach (even the word, “outreach” hadn’t come into usage) of the firm. Eventually, most […]
In the olden days, about twenty-plus one or two years ago, to be exact, marketing involved several factors in converting the mildly interested into the valued customer. Naturally, it included advertising of some sort, even if it was in the printed Yellow Pages (humongous telephone book for business listings). Before internet searches, and as businesses […]
131 years ago, Nietzsche stated: “God is dead.” But God is not dead. God–in any and all forms–is very much alive, especially online. Judging from online Presence alone, God might say, as Mark Twain once did, “Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.” The next big thing in gTLD’s (generic top level domains) will […]
“I spent the morning reorganizing my board on pinterest. I feel like I really accomplished something.” Those are the words of the social media customer, your next customer. These are the sentiments of the socially plugged-in mass marketplace of micro-manufacturing, the small one-crafter operation or even the massive disaggregated team of micro-manufacturers working for a […]
It’s no secret that the purpose of business, as with life, is to grow and evolve. In life, the bumps and bruises teach us our lessons but in business a skinned knee can cost a small fortune. There are those in business who grow and succeed and those who stagnate and eventually fail. Stagnation is […]
There’s always discussion as to what is the best way to present your product or services to prospective clients. A company without a web site is rare. Only the smallest of main street businesses can survive without a web site… possibly. As people turn to the web, rather then the phone book to find the […]
Building relationships is at the heart of link building, because people are the ones giving links, not websites. The newest and hottest way to build relationships in your niche is to engage with them on social media, but we all know how time consuming this can be. Take, for example, twitter. Although an awesome tool […]
