SEO. Social Media and a Book to help you out!

So I have been on my share of business conventions where there is a listing of speakers who’s subject they are going to speak about can pique your curiosity. So you want to see them, right? Even if it’s on a subject you have knowledge of. You want to pick up some tips and info that you may not have heard of before so you can help your clients. So I went to one recently, the lineup was great but I wanted to hear a guy talk about social media and seo because that is what I do. I listened what he told the mostly unwashed audience about his sage advice on social media and seo. What a load of B.S. this guy spouted.

Internet Marketers

Let’s imagine a situation where we have two Internet marketers who know each other. One has a great product that will sell very well but he has no mailing list, no affiliates, nothing. The other is a great marketer with tens of thousands of subscribers in his mailing list, but the problem is he has nothing to sell to them. The very obvious solution here is to give the product to the great marketer with lots of contacts, and split the profits between them. This, my friend, is the very essence of Joint Ventures.

Do you have a keyboard monkey working for you? Is your social media campaign a zoo?

So what is a keyboard monkey? My friend Will Morgan of TagTeam Creative here in Dallas has used that term and I love it! It means, at least to me, someone who is a low level employee or intern that is posting updates on the social network and their skill level isn’t exactly great and needs a little work and so they need a little leadership and a gentle guiding hand while they are learning posting skills. You did see some skills, that’s the reason you hired them, right?

Not so much. Facebook allows Profile Pages to become Business Pages. You could be in DANGER.

I may be in the minority (and according to what I am reading, I am) but hear me out. I don’t think this change that FB is allowing to change your profile to become a business page is all that and in fact it could hurt quite a few people.

So Facebook “Like” is getting a little challenge from Google! “+1” is the tool. Really!

Yeah, that’s right. +1.
I was thinking hmm, it’s almost April 1st, so is this pulling my leg? Getting a jump on the joke? +1. Really? Not digging the name, but I’m not Google..lol
A little earlier today, Google rolled out a new button called +1. The +1 button will show up next to the search engine results and the AdWords ads. It is planned for in the future that if you have a website and you are a publisher you will be able to add a +1 button to pages and articles on your sites and that should get you some search engine taste.
