Scheduling Posts On Twitter Via Tweeten; My Process

In March of 2015 I wrote an article titled Promoting Yourself In Social Media; My Personal Study. In that post I talked about how I was doing a lot of things to try to get myself noticed more. That’s because I know I need more traffic coming to my blogs and website, and I wanted more people to recognize me as someone who might know something about blogging, social media, leadership, etc.

I mentioned how things had been progressing for me, and a lot of it had to do with Twitter. At that time I mentioned that my traffic had gone up 15%. I can tell you that, in a comparison of the period I compared to after my initial test that my traffic has gone up 35%; that’s not so bad. Twitter is now my 4th largest referrer overall but my #1 referrer from social media; that’s pretty cool right?

5 Ways Having A Blog Is More Important Than Social Media

Let’s start with an audacious statement; blogging is a big deal. It’s probably a bigger deal than having a website; it’s definitely bigger than marketing on social media. If that doesn’t counter all the talk about blogging being dead, I’ve got nothing more to offer you.

However, if you’ve stuck around to see where I’m going with this, I appreciate your giving me the chance to make my point and hopefully convince you to at least see what I’m saying. You don’t have to agree with me… although that wouldn’t depress me any.

3 Things You Need To Do On LinkedIn

I once wrote a post where I talked about why business people need to be on LinkedIn. It wasn’t a bad article, but I didn’t go into any kind of detail as to why people should be there.

Most of the people on LinkedIn are either looking for jobs or parking their name there “just in case”. While that’s all and good, if you’re an entrepreneur, business owner, or salesperson, you also need to establish a viable presence. Even though LinkedIn’s becoming the business version of Facebook, you still need to be there. I’m going to give you 3 quick things you should do when you get there.

The Word For 2020 Is… Socialization

As we close out 2019, a year that I’m glad is finally over, I have to say that I’ve been through a lot of different things, including an interesting bit of growth and thought. Some of it’s been personal, some business. Because it’s been all over the board, I’ve been working on goals and plans for 2020, and I’m sharing one with you.

Socialization

As you see above, the word for 2020 for me is socialization. It’s an intriguing word because most of the internet marketing gurus like to use the word “engagement”. Unfortunately, truth be told, most of those using the word aren’t actually doing it. I’m sure they think they are, but they’re not. Why?

The Facebook Ads Experiment

There’s a young guy I sometimes mentor and have lunch with named Adam. One of the things he does for business is he tries to help people market their businesses or products on Facebook.

We were having a conversation about this and he asked me if I wanted to try to market my business on Facebook using Facebook ads. I told him that I didn’t believe either of the main industries I was in would work all that well on Facebook. Still, I decided to give him a chance.
