Social Media For Small Business

Wed, 14 Apr 2010 22:23:00 +0000

Often as we start a new business or perhaps we're an existing business we get comments from friends, family and/or other business associates such as:-
"You need Social Media for Small Business"
OR
"Are you on Twitter - Facebook - LinkedIn?"
OR they're told by the same people
"You should be on Social Media Sites for your Business such as Twitter - Facebook - LinkedIn" it is important for your business bla bla bla...
Unfortunately what they don't proceed to do is to help or even just to guide them on the dos and don'ts - or - they don't elaborate on how to use the sites - hence - the drop off rate is phenomenal - because - they use these sites blindly - they get bored because they don't know what they're doing
My Twitter Friends at Gold Coast Social Media - are great at helping businesses with their Social Media Optimising skills - Get you on the right track in using Social Media For Small Business.

A couple of pointers for the new users of Social Media sites
1. It is an idea to look at what other people are saying then comment if you like it or RT if you're on Twitter
2. Do your best to thanks people who @ mention you or RT your Tweets and/or posts which have been shared by them onto their wall etc
3. Take your time maybe install Tweetdeck or People browser or something similar where you can see more if you like to use Twitter
4. Talk to people on a social level not just post your own - buy this - buy that - look at this - look at that -
5. Post some jokes or quotes or something maybe even a link to recipes just to be different to what your business is about.
6. Recommend people to other friends in your network - but be choosy as to who you link with who - don't just send all your friends to each other - you need to read people and see if their personalities match or their businesses match - have common interests - however it is ok to say things like hey check out this awesome person but not direct them to anyone in particular

My recommendation is -Social Media For Small Business - is very important to the Credibility Puzzle - not only of your business - more so - you as a person. If people don';t like you they possibly won;t use your services or products
 I know personally regarding the sites I am on - I do my best to respond to all who take the time to @talk to me on twitter or refer our business - make comments on my Stumble Upon Blog - Gather Posts - Facebook Wall Posts - Of course this is not an easy task - I have time to do this - this is my job/business I take 1 in the morning 1 hour middle of the day and 1-2 hours in the evening - even if you have to get wife/hubby/older kids to just go into your sites and thank people for mentioning or thanks or the RT - comment etc.
It all comes down to building credibility of you then your businesses credibility will follow.

I highly recommend Social Media For Small Business and Lager Businesses too.
If you are needing assistance with Social Media be sure to contact Gold Coast Social Media for your individual social media needs

URL Shorteners for Newbies

Thu, 18 Mar 2010 04:18:00 +0000

Today - I'm going to talk about URL Shorteners - for Newbies - Mainly because I just read a 2 part Blog Post at Lunametrics Blog, which prompted me to write this post - as there are so many different tools available the naive newbies - they have a hard time choosing what is best for their needsI personally use 2 URL Shorteners as well as StumbleUpon (Tweeting directly from StumbleUpon uses their own URL shorterner, which does not get the Page Rankings we need if we were to use other tools).The first one I ever heard about was TinyUrl - I was told this was a great one to use by a former coach - being new at the time and knowing absolutely nothing about the internet at all - I struggled with that - I'd also heard about budurl which seemed easy enough to use so I used that for a while. Then I was lucky enough to be shown  bit.ly URL shorteners and how to use them - - I was saved - - this to me was the best thing on the planet as far as URL shorteners and I was concerned. Remember I was so new to this, I used to struggle doing searches on Google for anything. I laugh when I look back only a year ago - I knew zip about the internet.To learn more about TinyUrl you can visit - Wikipedia for full definition and the pros and cons of using this particular URL ShortenerI will briefly describe for you budurl - Quoted taken direct from BudUrl.com - "BudURL was designed from the start to give small businesses and marketers insight into previously invisible click traffic. Not everyone has access to Google Analytics and most of those that have it don't know how to use it. BudURL makes link tracking amazingly simple. Shorten the link, put it somewhere, and watch the clicks roll in. It's that easy!BudURL is easy to use! Just paste in a large, unruly web address in the box above and click the "Shrink It!" button. You'll get a unique BudURL™ that you can use anywhere you'd like such as social networks, instant messages, emails, ad campaigns, electronic newsletters, etc."What I like about BudURL and Bit.ly is that they can track how many clicks each shortened URL gets. Both of these URL Shorteners also give you the option to customise your URL which I only recently found out - heck it was under my nose after all!Example I have this long URL http://www.petsplus.com.au/i_pet-shop-shipping.asp I wish to shorten this for my Tweets lets say (also great for Affiliate URLs BTW) - petssplusshiphttp://budurl.com/petsplusship ---This is much nicer and clearer don't you think? You may need to click on images to enlarge. As an example I went over and clicked the shortened URL to show you how the stats work.Bit.ly is much the same not as colourful - however a lot more user friendly - In my opinion that is.  Here I will use another example of one of my existing URLs which I shortened so as I could tweet for a friend of mine in Twitter - here is the long URL -http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xcj6x7_rob-smith-fort-collins-co-social-me_techNow here is the custom URL I chose - RobAdvert - Note you may need to do a little experimenting as the first choice is not always available. I was chasing a custom name of 'VideoMarketing'- not available.http://bit.ly/RobAdvert I then posted this "Target your customers with social-media-video-marketing....http://bit.ly/RobAdvert" to Twitter - directly from bit.ly with the share button - Easy Peasy!Ok now let's have a quick look at the stats using bit.ly URL Shorteners.As you can see by this you get stats with both. You can keep track of traffic to your websites or pages - You're able to customise your links - I have since customised several of my Website's URLs such ashttp://taketheplungecoffee.com/Fairtrade-Organic to this http://bit.ly/FairTradeOrganic.If you have any questions on this subject feel free to comment below - I will get back to you.Combined with a great Twitter Tool such as Tweetomatic Profiteer - You're sure going to have fun with making money as an affiliate with one of the URL Shorteners and ClickBankUrzay G is my name - I[...]



First Things First Using Stumble Upon

Fri, 05 Mar 2010 03:28:00 +0000

It's not uncommon for many to wonder how to use the Social Bookmarking and Social Media sites effectively, especially when you're new to the Internet or Internet Marketing world. StumbleUpon is one of my favourite Social Bookmarking sites.Like most, I was unable to understand the true benefits of it's huge power - that is another subject where you can find the best information on why StumbleUpon is great for social media here at - Windmill Networking where Neal Schaffer states:-"There are 4 compelling reasons why you should start using StumbleUpon"1) StumbleUpon Helps You Discover the Best of the Web…in Less Time2) StumbleUpon Helps You Find Interesting People to Follow3) StumbleUpon has a Unique Advertising System: You Can Buy Traffic to Your Website4) Yes, Using StumbleUpon Will Lead to More Traffic to Your Website…OrganicallySince learning more and more of the power of this great social bookmarking site - I have had a couple ask for some tips - as I proceeded to answer an email I found myself getting so involved with the response - it led me to write this blog postSo First Things First Using StumbleUpon - (this is after you've signed up of course)1. What you need to do is download the StumbleUpon Add-on for your browser, if you haven't already got that - this makes it so much easier to share your stumbles as well as save them.2.  Be sure to set all your stumbling preferences on your settings page under heading- manage interests.3. Whether you're looking to stumble great sites, meet people, or maybe you're here for business reasons, like many others - it is highly recommended that you write something about yourself - what you're about - what you do - your interests etc. this, in-turn, might encourage like minded people to subscribe back to your SU Blog. See diagram below4. Start Stumbling Websites and other Stumblers directly from your toolbar or surf the net and start saving favourites of interest to you. ***Tip*** the more favourites you have - the better for you - it shows that you're active here - people will look at what you're stumbling at - regardless of how long you've been here - especially if you've been here a short time and you have hundreds of favourites saved - they tend to like that (this is only my opinion though) - if you have your own blog posts - thumb those too - then share with your SU friends. But be ware people are not happy for you to continually asking them to thumb your own things. Share your own things maybe once or twice a week and let them decide if they want to thumb and/or review - most times if you say something like "This is my latest post let me know what you think - or maybe I just posted this today thanks. Just use your own words but don't be pushy. A fellow stumbler told me not to mention thumb review like directly because it might damage the chances of you getting ranked with SU. I did not know this till last week either. The "All" tab on you SU browser toolbar - is where your preferences are saved so you can click on this to stumble - Videos - Photos - Websites etc To Stumble other stumblers from your tool bar - click on the "All" tab - drop down to "Society"--> Click on  "Stumblers"To share from your tool bar you can only choose one stumbler at a time - however if you're on your favourites' page you can click "share" from under the particular favourite - where you will find that a drop down box of all your "Allow shares to my Toolbar" subscribers are, from there you may click on however many of them you like to share something with. You are also able to save friend's email addresses at the browser toolbar -  people who are not SU users - to send them a direct link of something you think they may be interested in - from the site you're on. Pretty neat I think - I just discovered this one the other day.When the friends that you've ticked "Allow shares to my Toolbar", send you something - to the left of the thumb up - will be a little white square and a number next it - when you c[...]

Google Sniper Review / Information

Sat, 17 Oct 2009 09:06:00 +0000

Google Sniper Review / Information as Authored by Jacquie M

Google Sniper is a brand new Blueprinted Course which has only just hit the public marketplace
The Google Sniper complete blueprint system to making money online, which uses FREE targeted traffic only and relies on you setting up tiny sites once, and never really needing to do anything more.
George Brown - an 18 year old ex furniture mover - the producer of Google Sniper shows how this system focuses greatly on maximising the profits from those tiny sites - where in the system, George talks about conversions - he says it is a "complete Money Making System". "It is an income on "True Auto-Pilot" as you can get, because you need only set it up & forget it - no ongoing work!
The Google Sniper Course is broken down into one "Big Manual" and a series of 8 Videos that follow each step in the manual - just follow George's directions. Basically what this means is that you follow the manual then watch the relevant video - George shows you what to do this way you can see as well as read - great for those of us that have a hard time learning from reading a manual only.


This course is absolutely newbie friendly. Even though there are very advanced topics shown in the videos on the website, these advanced topics are all explained with such easy to understand English that even the newest newbie will understand. George Brown put a great deal of effort into the writing and re-writing of this "Big Manual" to ensure that everyone using it would have everything they need to get started in their Google Sniper success story of their own.
Another great thing about the course, is that there are no ongoing costs unless you choose to buy domain names, hosting or other software to help build your business but in reality, you need nothing else to get started it comes complete.
The fact that you don't even need ANY Tech skills, just makes this course that much better - You will be shown everything!
Again I tell you that everything you need is in this course - what ever else you have bought and learned in the past can literally be put to the back-burner, this will still make you money.
George specifically wanted to share this with everyone that wants to learn how to make money online the easiest way he knows possible. Reasonably priced too, & if you really want, you can opt to have additional on-going training and updates from the members area.
Jacquie M writes about Google Sniper and George Brown, he 18yo producer of the course. Get your Google Sniper here AND be shown - step by step - by the manual - then by video. What could be easier?

Article Submitter Review

Wed, 05 Aug 2009 21:31:00 +0000

While article submission isn't anything shockingly new to the world of SEO, many people STILL don't do it... and for good reason. It takes so incredibly long to do manually.

I'll admit, I had tried article submission at one point, but after I finally found a few article directories to submit my articles to, and then after manually copying and pasting my information into the required textboxes on each submission site, I quickly realized that my time could be better spent doing something else.

Then I came across a free program created by Brad Callen and Bryxen Software, Inc. that allows you to automatically submit your articles to hundreds of article directories with a few mouse clicks. Basically all I had to do was input my article criteria into the software, ONCE! Then, the program would automatically fill in all of the required data at each of the submission websites. Pretty incredible if you ask me.

The only part I didn't understand was why the program is free... but I can't argue with that I suppose.

The software currently contains around 700 article directories, all free to submit your articles to. It is the most straightforward program that we've come across, in that all you need to do is:


1. Input your article details (i.e. title, article body, bio, etc.) into the software.

2. Click on the directory you want to submit to.

And then the program will automatically fill in your article details. Then, you simply click the submit button and your article is instantly submitted to the directory. Then, you can move to the next directory, go through the list, and by the time you're finished you'll have roughly 700 one way links pointing to your website.

I can't think of an easier way to get links. Of course, if you're going to get links this quickly, it's important to submit different variations of your articles, to make things look more natural to the search engines.

You can do this very easily via Article Submitter when you create your project in the beginning.

The software is constantly being updated and their is an incredible community of users established that all work together to make the software better and better, so you know you're getting great value for the money.

Common Mistakes Made By Newbie Affiliates

Fri, 31 Jul 2009 05:10:00 +0000

This article will explain some of the common mistakes made
by newbie affiliates. It shows you how to overcome
these mistakes and where to look for assistance.

It's always one of those "I can't believe its true"
moments for new affiliates once they discover the world
of affiliate marketing. When they realise you don't
have to worry about product development or shipping.
They jump in not doing some due diligence on the
company. They expect to start making some money within
few weeks, until reality strikes. They are yet to be
millionaires. Here are some mistakes and tips on how to
avoid them.

"Patience is a Virtue" like they say. It took years for
MacDonalds to be successful, it took years for
Microsoft and other big companies to take off to
success. In fact most business take up to 5 years to
start seeing profit. Treating your affiliate business
as a real business is important. Super affiliates that
earn $20,000 a month took years to get to that point.
Research a program before signing up. Commit to stick
it out. If they offer guides and training take
advantage of it. Update and maintain your site with
fresh contents. Don't jump ship when the going gets
tough.

Avoid the temptation to subscribe to too many programs.
When the going gets tough, its easy to think the grass
is greener the other side. The problem about
subscribing to too many programs at the same time is
that you'll fail to give them the attention and focus
they deserve to make you money. I recommend two or
three programs at the same time to enable you turn
your hard work into cash.

The main problem with most affiliates is that they want
to make Fast Money. By taking time to learn and apply
what they've learnt, slow and steady they will get there.
I recommend this program because it's only interest is in
making you a top marketer with the right mindset.


This system gives you everything you need from A-Z. You
get access to over 100 videos, quick guides, tools and
much much more. Best of all you also get Mindset Coaching
audios.

affiliates do, and to find out more about this membership site

More Traffic

Mon, 27 Jul 2009 06:36:00 +0000

As the phrase ‘make money online’ is becoming more and more popular now days, that there are a lot opportunities available on the net for the public to join. Many people get caught with the phrase because they always believed that it is as easy as it sounds but the truth it is not. A lot of work and effort must be done before you can get what you are looking for and to get where you'd like to be be in life.

Anyway, the simple and basic strategy for every business is to reach as many customers as we can because no matter how good is our product is, without customers it is nothing. In this case traffic is our main objective. I am not going to talk about SEO or how to be on the first page of organic searches but I am going to discuss about how to bring in traffic to your site using tools other than the organic search.

There are many ways but below are just a few to get you started that I feel most popular and
most effective ways that will generate traffic to your site.

Pay Per Click (PPC)
This is an Internet advertising program that applies on search engines, advertising networks, and content sites, such as blogs or website, in which advertisers pay only when their ad is clicked. With a proper keyword and budget set in place, pay per click can be a very useful
tool to drive traffic and eventually generate money. Example of pay per click advertising program is Google Adwords.

Social Networking Websites
No money needed but yet still effective in driving huge amounts of traffic to your site. I have made a quick search on one of the largest and most popular social networking websites, Facebook and have found there are more than 20 million people in United Kingdom and millions more in the rest of the world, that are members of Facebook.

Tell A Friend
Don’t forget that by sending a marketing email is also a good way to promote your site. Tell a friend is a tool that will allow your visitors to promote your site on your behalf. If the contents of your site is interesting, useful and informative, people will recommend it to others using tell a friend tool and you will see that your site will be spreading like wild fire such as socialtwist.com is a good example of tell a friend

Actually there are many more ways to generate traffic other than be on the first page of an organic search. Eager to be on the first page sometimes make people forgot about other opportunities to generate traffic.

Traffic Exchanges continued

Sat, 06 Jun 2009 05:27:00 +0000

Just to touch base with all following I've still been going with the traffic exchanges and have increased traffic now by 1700% but still no opt ins to my squeeze page at this stage. I am only doing the free memberships to all of the ones I've picked. here are the best of the ones I've been using as far as receiving credits for surfing their sites.

1. Ts25
2. Traffic Era
3. Dragon Surf
4. Traffic Swarm
5. Hits Booster Pro
6. Hit2Hit
7. Revenue Magic

Actually I have signed up to 20 or so traffic exchanges but these are definitely the ones that give the better credits on a free membership.
BTW went over to my Google Analytics and I was mistaken about the percentage of traffic, it is actually 7000%+. Not bad is it??? Now all I want to see are the thousands of opt-ins they say I supposed to be receiving.




Affiliate Marketing

Sat, 06 Jun 2009 04:28:00 +0000

While researching all the ways on the net on how to make money online, its any wonder that so many people can't seem to get anywhere with there Internet Marketing ventures. You no sooner find something that seems really legit with no BS, then the next product is launched. I personally feel that if you really want to get into IM, you might like to see if you can find a coach and mentor that you can physically connect with once a week for a few weeks or at least once every 2 weeks if possible. Otherwise, like myself, prior to having a coach and mentor, you might be spending more money, time and don't forget the late nights and early mornings, just trying this product and that product. I'm sure there are some great products, with online contact with real coaches out there, so keep a look out or even do your searches and hopefully this will put an end to your search in having an IM business.



Traffic Exchanges

Thu, 28 May 2009 10:42:00 +0000

Today, I thought I'd try my hand at some of the various Traffic Exchanges out there, just to see what they're all about. I had about 15 mins on a few at time, when it started to jam down my hubby's PC so I had to get off surfing. A few hours later I decided to get back on, not long after that, there was a power failure in our street. we had no access to either PC, so we went to get take out for dinner. When we were about 3/4 through our dinner the power returned and back to surfing we go. Although there were several interruptions throughout the day, I still managed to have 600% increase in traffic to my website. Just understand, that this is an experiment that I'm testing for a few weeks or so, to see if it really does get the traffic and list building happening. I will keep you informed



Module 6 Never Ending Traffic

Wed, 27 May 2009 01:44:00 +0000

Today we had a guest speaker going through this module for us. Traffic Traffic Traffic. Kim went through sites, there were heaps of them, Blog sites, forum sites, ezine sites ad marketing sites and the list goes on and on. Kim also showed us You Tube and other ways to market our websites and tips to get them ranked as well as getting them on a whole lot of other sites that will promote them for us. What awesome information. I found it mind blowing to hear all of this. Some times, I'm sure others will also agree that we had this knowledge years ago.
All the best to all the Internet Marketers out there.



Affiliate Marketing Research

Sun, 24 May 2009 12:24:00 +0000

Wow, might I say, the more I look into the affiliate mareting side of things, there is certainly a whole lot of learning in that alone in becoming a successful marketer. There are so many great and some not so great I'm sure, programs out there, which I found just by doing my research on products followed by research on promoting those products. It could be quite overwhelming to some newbies.
I tell you, there really is some serious money to be made online. The surface has only just been scratched, in this "world wide web" internet business.



Brainstorming Session 3 hours

Wed, 20 May 2009 23:19:00 +0000

Late night again, about 1.30am before sleep time, with another great session last night on Brainstorming some of the class' own products, that they maybe going to promote. I didn't get a chance to chat with Chris last night as there were too many ahead of me and he had to go. The calss was only meant to go for 1 hour, but ended up 3 hours, as usual poor Chris had too many questions to answer. Some of the students had loads of questions and astories to tell and seeing that my own wasn't too important, I can talk to him at a later date I guess. I'm sure next week's lesson on Never Ending Traffic is as good as the other lessons we've had. That particular lesson sounds just like what we all need.



Follow up On Ezine Articles

Tue, 19 May 2009 10:28:00 +0000

I received my approval quick a s usual from these guys and my article has already been published at Ezine Articles here is the link to view my article "Are You New to Online Businesses?" http://EzineArticles.com?/id=2348757



Article Submitted to Ezine Articles

Fri, 15 May 2009 05:55:00 +0000

I've been very productive today in promoting my business. I wrote and submitted my second article too Ezine Articles, on the topic of being new to the internet business, titled "Are You New to Online Businesses". I'm hoping to have it published by early next week. The last article I had published was a success for me as it was published as expert author. I can't even write all that well. I write, check, edit and rewrite check and edit over and over till I think it looks like an adult wrote it. I also tend to go round and round in circles when I write - I start on a topic, which then diverts me to a whole new topic.
I published my edited "Traffic Directly To You" Squidoo lens too on a similar topic as above. I hope it is a successful in getting the word out and about, on generating traffic.

Highway Traffic

Thu, 07 May 2009 23:12:00 +0000

Lots of homework to do in writing and driving more on Highway Traffic to your door. Lots of research too. Having a good look at twitter and gather sites too. Still deciding on what micro niche I would like to deal with. I need to get that 100% embedded in my head so I can start writing a few newsletters and get started in writing my book on the subject. The sooner I do that, the sooner I can start making some more friends and acquaintences. I like to meet more people to follow my blogs and to follow theirs.
Signing out today more next week on Highway Traffic



Session-Renegade Affiliate-Building Traffic

Wed, 06 May 2009 10:34:00 +0000

Up at 5.30am to do module 4. We had another session of close to 5 hours of this morning. and what content in this module. Wow.
I, as usual raised my hand to ask questions and give a bit of information. I suppose it keeps me positive. It was also good that what I was actually saying, made a few other people in the group, comment on my responses, as they feel that they're in the same boat as myself.
Did a bit of homework on my website and book again this evening but it's now 8.42pm and I'm getting a wee bit tired. Shall do more Traffic research tomorrow.
