Is Retirement a Thing of the Past OR is it a Golden Age Opportunity? Seniorpreneur 2 7 monthsRev (5413): As an online presence consultant and personal mentor, at the age of 66, I am doing exactly what I choose to do and will, allowing reasonable health, do it until the day I die. My "I Can" motto is: "To give as much value as I can to as many as I can as often as I can for as long as I can!" This is not an onerous or difficult thing. It is what I choose and want and enjoy. The people I work with, from across all working ages,...

How do I improve my online reach w Facebook? jmolan 22 1 yearjmolan (478): Funny Bill (or maybe not) I'm not sure The original filling out of the ad said goals? Page visits, Likes, etc. You can see the two colored line, the short piece on the end is what FB got me, the...
Boosting posts on Facebook gspieler 19 1 yearBelew (11716): @jmolan Good morning! There's a LOT that looks like it works. A little that actually does. I am always skeptical of someone who has done one thing well - sold their widget for example - who is now an expert on how to sell widget. Sure they did it. But can they do it again? If so, then why not keep selling their widget? Why are they suddenly widget sales experts? I have dozens ... more actually - of firsthand case studies in multiple...
Must I have a website/domain host? julesthoughts 4 1 yearRev (5413): @julesthoughts I take it from what you said that you have a blog site on That is a great place to start and, for many, a great place to stay. Should you ever decide to move to a self-hosted WordPress site, moving your content is a breeze. As Bill said, you really can't do business from the free WordPress blog site. It's against their rules and just difficult to do. They offer (overpriced) upgrades that will let you add business...
Your Connection is Not Secure ... Then what? jmolan 19 1 yearSusanDay (2023): @Rev Great! Thanks for clearing that up.
Shameless promotion. jmolan 5 2 yearsFrugalTravelsNepal (97): My goal, particularly since they are hell-bent on gutting health care, I'm trying to help people from the US to come here for health care and respite. We can provide a lovely room with a view of the Himalayan foothills with spectacular views of the Himalayas on clear days for long-term stays. There are many hospitals with an international presence. You can expect to get the same level of care as you would in the country that funds them. There...
How to Get a Good Review Your Book jmolan 14 2 yearsBelew (11716): I was going to share some of the more memorable lines I got from @jmolan's book. But the more I read, and this is the simple truth, the more I found ... then I couldn't remember which ones I wanted to share or where I could find them. Guess that's why some books get read more than once. 8-)
Facebook ad promotions gspieler 10 2 yearsRev (5413): @SusanDay I think the reference is about adding two pages to her original account (seeing timeline as a page).
Do you know what Tailwind is? JelenaBB 9 2 yearsJelenaBB (97): @Belew yes! It`s my favorite app now. I have about 100 repins in 3 weeks and more than 200.000 views. It is now my second social network for bringing visitors to my site. FB is still first :)
Engage your fans. jmolan 7 2 yearsBelew (11716): @jmolan Do you find that most of your new fans are people you have met F2F in another speaking assignment, or people that have happened upon you somehow?
How to Make Heart Felt Digital Connections jmolan 14 2 yearsSusanDay (2023): Must 'ave been some ghost story! @Belew
Photo frustrations jmolan 13 2 yearsRev (5413): If you really want options in a theme, check out Woo Canvas!
Ad Sense? Do you use? jmolan 6 2 yearsBelew (11716): The same adsense spend that was dispersed among 4 million bloggers 10 years ago is now dispersed among 80 million bloggers. It'll make you some money, but abt 1/20th of what it might have a long time ago = consider whether or not you want to dilute the content of your site by trying to get folks to click on smth related ... or not.
Blog + Social media poz75 9 2 yearsSteve (3649): I'd hire someone to do the content, sales drive everything ... and if you're as busy as you say ... then keep doing what you are doing (making sales) and hire in someone to do this other stuff. Just a suggestion... and @susanday can probably help with your content needs...
Have you refreshed your online profiles? TParker 6 2 yearstienny (658): @belew You are right. I choose to be present at website and learn to be more present at niche website as mentioned by @TParker. Since I choose to do animation and design work, I need to be present at behance also besides of website.
Twitter repeat - doesn't it get tedious? BuzzyMarketing 9 2 yearsBuzzyMarketing (31): @Belew Many times...many, many times.
Giving it away jmolan 3 2 yearsjmolan (478): Oh my you are so right on the horizon, I am usually not that sloppy, thanks. I will fix that before sending out the offer. My fans are used to me bouncing between boats and eagles. I have a couple diverse groups of fans. Deadliest catch fishing people and eagle/nature. It can be fun. So far it looks like seven new email sign ups since the offer.
Quick issue/problem with Twitter FrugalTravelsNepal 9 2 yearsFrugalTravelsNepal (97): Funny, but the reason I stay on Google is that they SEO their own first so I think I get a bit of a bump. I really don't like the platform because it errors a lot when I try to upload a picture. I've been trying to post elsewhere, too. So, I finally got 8,500 followers after a month or more of having 8,490 or so. They just wouldn't let the followers increase. Even Twiends only lets me follow 13 people before they put the warning on.
Video coverage big difference jmolan 24 2 yearsBelew (11716): @jmolan The simple answer abt what works is there is no simple answer. If there was one almighty way that works best, everyone would use that one way... then it would not be as effective any more. I recommend IF your strategy is to give something to get something ... make that 'GIVE' as cool as you can without giving away the farm. AND ... make the 'GET' as painless for the GETTER to GIVE as possible. Make it dumb simple.
What Facebook Fatigue Looks Like Belew 14 2 yearsIamstevenb (55): I need to remember that. I am very combative. I use Facebook as one more place to fight the good fight. I think I will integrate things two of you have said. Social media is a place to be social. I need to find ways to be helpful.
Feel the HEAT of Fire Fighting, first hand! SJSmoky 8 2 yearsmorningstar (61): That sounds great. If it's ok with you then I can repost your message on several blogging Facebook groups I am a part of.

Growing an email list jmolan 10 2 yearsRev (5413): @jmolan That's better, but I would probably add two sentences (about 20- 25 words) that provides a little more description (and keywords!). I would also center the image or make it larger to match the width of the form -- no real SEO value there, just a visual "discomfort" thing. Additionally, the MailChimp code has no alternate text (alt) attribute for the image. If there is a way to add it in the MailChimp setup you should do...

What a great forum! FreedomSeekers 2 2 yearsRev (5413): @FreedomSeekers It's a good beginning. Having a website is certainly better than not having one. Your posts are topical and informative. You have lots of related images. All of that is good. You are, however, making a number of beginner mistakes that may harm both your organic traffic development and your position of authority in your niche. You've come to the right place to sort this stuff out. If you are interested in doing it quickly and...
Futurist passionate abt analytics socialinsights 5 2 yearszsazsa (19): Hi Paul. Nice to meet you. My futurist thinking lays in the present. I think it is important for earthlings usually live in the past or the future as a fantasy, but not many realises that the future is in the present so we need to live in it to consciously create a future.

Social Media Marketing and Copywriting Alessio Jump to first page31Jump to last page 2 yearsRev (5413): Once, when I was in an MLM business, I wanted to reach out to people I knew could be looking for my products if they only knew I was there. Rather than put out catalogs -- what many were doing at significant expense, I printed up a bunch of "cards" four up on a standard sheet of printer paper. I cut them out and then cut between phone number tabs on the leading edge... you know, those tear-off phone number tabs you see on posts on...
Twisted Restorations Twistedrestoration 3 2 yearstienny (658): @TwistedRestoration All the best in your business. What type of restoration service do you provide? I like the part for you to love to restore items that have been tossed to the side and forgotten. I still have an old mobile phone at home that have been tossed aside. I use it as an alarm clock.

You should see your name there and a green button with the number of posts you have made. To the right of that is a little "down arrow". Mouse over it and a menu will appear. First item is Profile & Settings.

How to promote a youtube channel Phillip 5 2 yearsSunilBhaskaran (283): @Phillip : Everything Bill and Rev said! :-) You may want to start with basics.. like Bill said - what would be compelling enough to get people's attention. You must understand their immediate needs (ala Rev) and be prepared to give them at least a taste if not a 'sub-solution'. Hope that makes sense!
READ FIRST Getting Started Here on the Forum jycmba 19 2 yearsBelew (11716): @GillesZimmermann Agreed ... this warrants its own thread. You do have a strategy ... that's great.

Analytical Trick to Boost Content Marketing skappal 5 2 yearsskappal (70): @Steve Thanks for asking this question ! To an extent you are right in saying that the paper ads have outperformed all the other mediums (Ad channels) if we go by sheer numbers and how they add up. However, the premise of this analysis is not to simply look at the aggregations but to explore the relationships of these Add Mediums with the Products. This analysis explores the relationships in between the rows and columns. By transforming the...

New Service business w/ specific target marckovacs 4 3 yearsRev (5413): @marckovacs @Lloyd and @SusanDay offer good advice. Along with blogging, you want your own domain name and self-hosted website. If you don't already have a site, get one up asap that is good enough to get started. You can work on the details over time but you can't go back in time to get started earlier when you discover earlier would have been good. So, get started now!

All Video Content for Facebook? bdaoust 12 3 yearsSusanDay (2023): @jycmba @Rev Good point. I know I start to get 'restless' when I watch a video that goes for more than 2 mins. What I have planned should only need 30 secs or 1 min I imagine. Might be worth trialing.

Using Social Media @ Work - InfoGraphic Belew 11 3 yearsRev (5413): @Belew I think the "work on a promise" meme has been beaten to death after a long and abusive relationship. So many business saw it as nothing more than a source of free labor which they could, and did, take advantage of. Interns and apprentices, however, still represent a lessor tapped resource. And you are right about the cost. I've used both and you need to be prepared to give as much as you get -- maybe even more -- for it to...
Social Media Metrics chrisleffler 20 3 yearsglobalman22 (76): I especially like @Steve's comment above: "We all monitor different things... most count new followers... some monitor engagement... but the only one worth monitoring is the conversion of social media followers in to prospects ( those entering your sales funnel ) and ultimately customers". If the purpose of your efforts is a commercial endeavor, I'm sure it all comes down to conversions.
Twitter: New Ad Format Tested on Twitter chrisleffler 10 3 yearsRev (5413): @chrisleffler Wasn't putting them down and certainly use them. More so since I've been on Blab. I was just pointing out that there is a tendency for these companies to take on the features and functions of everyone else and thus dilute the mission. MacDonald's success was a mediocre hamburger that was both affordable and consistent anywhere in the world. Their downfall may well be trying to serve up a menu that suits everyone. Where is Ray...

How to reach the senior entrepreneur Seniorpreneur 19 3 yearsSeniorpreneur (226): @globalman22 Thanks for your honest comments given about my Seniorpreneur Project. This is probably the most difficult and frustrating project that I have ever taken on. I agree that there has been some reluctance on my part to keep moving forward. It's been a very frustrating journey so far. A case in point is my Blog: I stopped writing my blog in Jan./2015 after writing 36-Only monthly articles. In Canada...

Names and brands rcayeras 3 3 yearsrcayeras (439): I assumed name recognition is part of branding.I'm not sure what the rest of it is.I doubt how great a name you choose for your business is the sole reason your business fails or succeeds. The only consideration I can think of - like RTDA - what is your product and when you do a web search with a (potential) business name, what do you find? I found it humorous to see vaping/e-cigarettes dominate youtube. It doesn't dominate web searching for...

Are you concerned with Twitter Likes? bdaoust 11 4 yearsbdaoust (949): @Belew @Steve It is not that people like you, it is that you have chosen a few comments or posts to "like" If you "like" a post to look at it later, will that increase your DMs? I guess it is a matter of perspective. I look through the tweets and only "like" those that I can go back to and make a comment or two.
Where can I find SEO/SEM help? jlr5385 15 4 yearsLizG (55): You never said what type of Adwords your client is buying. 7 dollars a day is literally nothing, and it's probably not set up correctly - thus not leading to conversions. I would do three things just with Google alone: 1) Display advertising with targeted placements and demographics by age/gender. One campaign for each of the product groups, so one for breast pumps, one for diabetic shoes, and one for braces. Each campaign has 3 - 6 image...

Where are your infographics? bdaoust 18 4 yearsbdaoust (949): I guess it all depends if your target audience has the pins that are worth re-pinning. The re-pinning is what alerts them to your interest. I am not extremely active here, but I do find many graphics that can be used elsewhere with the appropriate credit given. Plus I now have the Pin It button available on my graphics on my blog. (Hopefully it is still working). The audience here is over 50% female but many corporations are starting to see...

Content Curation, anyone? dmortaz 7 4 yearsdmortaz (145): As Steve suggested here you can curate your own content. In fact, has an option to scoop your own content using a link. As for Bill's question on end-game, the answer is developing more following and establishing yourself as the subject matter expert in the field. Right now I am scooping some of the content I have on Linkedin since they are not indexed by Google, so it's fresh off the press.
Newzmonkeys the news platform for kids 8-12 Newzmonkeys 9 4 yearsBelew (11716): @Newzmonkeys Re: "...get it known as quickly as possible." I wish I knew the answer to this. My experience is that there is no 'quick' way. I know the slow hard long lasting way. But I have found that the quicker a product/service/person is known ... the sooner they are forgotten. The longer it takes to build a following, the longer it takes for that following to dissipate. There are a lot of people who are smarter than I am....

LinkedIn Masters Wanted: Apply Within lunar_ranger 8 4 yearsBelew (11716): @lunar_ranger @Steve Hubspot does good research and shares generously. I tried outbound on LI (don't tell aanyone) and it doesn't work. Tell everyone. Do good work. Have something good to offer. Build good relationships. Share what you know. And your clients will hire you to help them implement it. If they don't hire you they weren't going to anyway.
