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.

Are you being scammed by so called SEO experts? Ripped off by web designers?

Ripoff

Oh my goodness. I have been a busy Social Media/Internet Marketer/SEO/SEM/Traffic Driver/Site Destroyer of late. What is a Traffic Driver/Site Destroyer? I’ll explain in a minute, Lucy.

I love going to help out the small (or even mid size to large company) and explain to them why the deadbeat web designer or SEO person they hired hasn’t been able to produce traffic for them. Why do I love it? Because I LOVE to help people NOT getting ripped off! I have seen the billing for some of what is going on for “expert work” and it is appalling.

Small Business and Social Media. Take advantage of these free ideas to be seen online!

I use Meetup groups to promote my business on a personal level. I love the fact that I can talk one on one with people and get to know them on that personal level and find out about them as a person and as a business. I have made quite a few business contacts going to those meetups and recieved quite a few jobs out of those business meetings. How? For me,  I show that once you provide value and solve a need and convey good feelings and show benefits, you’ll get some taste for your business.

I’ve been right about your posting habits! You don’t post and you suffer. Thanks HubSpot! You validate one of my issues!

I’ve been known for being a wisea** in my 20 plus years of radio being a sidekick. Mostly it was because I was usually right debating the host and the host would get steamed (pretend for the listeners..lol) for me being right. I wasn’t mean spirited even to the callers when they chimed in, but usually they took the good natured abuse because they were wrong on an issue. We wouldn’t let the right one’s on the air, that would make it boring. You gotta have conflict to make it fun..lol

Nothing about social media, no rants, no raves..I am a sleepy cat tonight

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

 

I’ll have something tomorrow for sure!

My Space is on the selling block, but bring your noseplugs. That is a dead carcus and the smell is bad.

The once mighty, once relevant and once THE social site, My Space, is on the selling block to get unloaded on some poor sap (errrr, lucky buyer) who wants to dole out a few bucks to save this sinking Titanic. Really?

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.

Social Media and the B.S. that is out there.

Seriously, this is how I feel sometimes when people start talking about how much they know about social media. This is what I hear a LOT. “Yeah, I know how to use Facebook and Twitter to help a business out” Really? How? “Oh, I just tell my friends what I am doing or post something about the next big party going on and I use that for the business so it will make them popular also” Huh? What? You are saying WHAT? THAT is what is helping a business out? Wow. Unless they are giving away drinks and it’s a bar, I don’t think that is going to work.
