Social Media Autoposting from your Blog – A Quick Solution

While, many will argue that social media is (of course) about your level of engagement, interaction, and networking, there is also quite a few of us bloggers who “prefer” an auto-posting solution “backed up” by engagement (as time permits).

For instance, a large organization can afford the luxury of a social-media focused individual who “can” take all day (or their 8 hours) and properly engage across media channels for a warm and friendly level of interaction.

The other model is the hard working blogger (usually a 1 person operation) who prefers to spend his or her time on the creation of content and fresh articles.

This article’s strategy “can” be utilized by both but is meant for the single entrepreneur who ALSO needs to alert their followers to fresh posts as they are submitted. This method is also a great way to save massive time (keeping your channels active with content) and driving traffic back from those who are alerted to your activity (your fans, LIKES and followers)

Without further ado, I have devised a simple 3 point plan that each uses a different method for submitting. Continue reading Social Media Autoposting from your Blog – A Quick Solution

Google+: Can’t Edit Business Page? – Tips for Business Owners

I’ve been building and tearing down Facebook Business pages for so long, that it would seem that everything in a new social platform is right there in plain sight. So you can guess my wonder when I logged into my gmail account, created a new Business page, and closed my web window. I could not get back into my Business page! (to edit that is)

So, I started to retrace steps and figured out that I would have to log back into “the” gmail account which I created the page. Ok, fair enough, but now when I get to the business page, the “edit” buttons are missing.

HMM….well like the trooper I am, I was instantly on the web searching for “how to get back into my Google+ business page?”. It seems that the feature is so new, there wasn’t too much reference on the subject.

After looking long and hard, the answer “was” in front of me. Though it just didn’t pop out and scream “here I am” on first experience.

If you refer to the image below, you’ll see that next to your personal profile is a drop down area. (if you created a page, that is) Clicking on that reveals the pages you created in which you can switch over to “assume” the identity of your page owner. You still have to click on your “profile button” (on top) and then that little blur button should show up to the right of your name.

Google+: Business savviness – Joining the Ranks of Search Opportunity

Hey there again! In this article I wanted to look at a few discoveries that I made this week. Namely it’s the instant SEO capabilities of getting your insurance business (or other) into the flow of information. As mentioned in previous articles I’m going to start with a simple search on the term “insurance” But before we get ahead of things, let’s get into the Goggle+ space
Now for the purpose of testing I’m gonna ask that you log out of any Google accounts (gmail accounts) (thus keeping personalization out of your results)

Ok, good, now we’ll want to do a search in the Google field. Let’s give “insurance” a try. Now I’m hoping that you are savvy in your discovery here as what I’m seeing is, everything that uses the words “insurance” used in the header or body for articles is being listed below under recent articles. This of course is per “most recent”, which to me suggests that you can easily get seen if you do alot of posts on your own niche (genre, market, territory…etc.) Now this post list will get busier as the days go by and more content is generated, though in the meantime your article or post might stay around just long enough to form a lead or get followed.
