Posted by on Apr 27, 2013 in Social Media Marketing | 0 comments

Earlier this week, LinkedIN announced that it will have a new contacts feature coming soon.  They didn’t really explain too much about it other than it will bring in all of our address books, emails (from outlook or gmail), email calendars, and keeps them up to date in one place. It also said that they will automatically pull in the details of your past conversations and bring the details directly your profile. It sounds like a good idea overall and with any good social strategy the faster you can adopt a new tool, the more you will...

5 Simple Ways To Write Better Tweets

Posted by on Apr 12, 2013 in Social Media Marketing, Twitter | 3 comments

Here are a few ideas to help you reach some more followers with your twitter marketing efforts. A reply tweet vs. a mention tweet Remember that by starting a tweet with @(and the person’s twitter handle) it’s actually a reply tweet.  Reply tweets will only be seen by the person you just wrote to, anyone who coincidentally follows both of you, and only the people who are lurking on your twitter timeline.  If you do want to mention someone in the beginning of your tweet, just start your tweet with “.@”. Leave room for retweets...

Now when you click into the...

There really is no escaping it, but not everyone will be happy with your services. Here are two positive things that come from Bad Reviews. 1) New Keyword Ideas In today’s day...
