Ultimate Social Challenge Live Coaching from Maria Gudelis and Tina Williams

Last week my friend Willie Crawford sent an email to me sharing a brand new social media training course being offered by Maria Gudelis and Tina Williams both highly respected marketers and social media experts. To be honest I set the email aside because I had a full plate last week and just didn’t take the time to look at the details. Thankfully that changed this morning.

I took a look at Willie’s email and the link he included and discover that this is definitely a course that I am buying and looking forward to completing and sharing with my friends. Why?

Facebook is Tracking Your Every Move Online! Here is How to Stop It!

I am not a Facebook Alarmist and I heavily use the site daily for both personal and business purposes. I am aware of the “known privacy risk” that exist and I do my best to be smart about how I use Facebook as most knowledgeable users are. The key here is known risk and there seems to be a steady stream of disclosures and a pattern of apologies coming from Facebook regarding privacy infringements experienced by it’s users.

I advocate for the use of Facebook, I believe it is an important site if your desire is to engage in social media to connect with family and friends or to grow your business and brand. I continue to teach that Facebook continues to be a key component to what I teach about establishing your online presence and cultivating an online community.

I recently read a blog posting by the staff at Global Grind, which addresses the work of Australian blogger Nik Cubrilovic and offered the following steps to ensure that your activities cannot be logged through the use of cookies: (Click on the Title Link above to read the complete article.)

How to Find the Best Internet Marketing Resources

I recently received some nice comments regarding the interview and the content we provided. I thought it might be of interest to my readers and I hope you take away at least one great idea that will become actionable in your business today.

Gary Vaynerchuk Shares Social Media Principles on CNN

Gary Vaynerchuk is a true for in marketing and the power of social media. I have previously posted videos of Gary on my blog and I have personally interviewed him for my Internet Business Blueprint podcast and closely follow his business model and marketing principles. I came across this video today and wanted to share it with you.

Here are a few basic principles on how to use social media effectively:

Measuring Social Media Return on Investment Your ROI

What is the return on investment from Social Media? This is a question that has been debated consistently over the past few months by a variety of thought leaders across the web. Erik Qualman, Gary Vaynerchuk , Guy Kawasaki, Seth Godin have written books that address the topic of Social Media ROI

The value of social media for business has been debated by early adopters and those slow to commitment to Facebook, Twitter, You Tube, Stumble Upon and other social platforms as an import part of their overall marketing and client relations strategy. The debate rages on, but what is undeniable is the impact that social media has had on small businesses and multi-national corporations alike.

I want to share a short video today that makes a powerful statement. The ROI on social media has been huge for many companies and transformational for others. New industries have emerged and old business models have been given new life as the world has become a much smaller place. I encourage you to invest a few minutes watching this powerful video and reading the associated blog post from across the social web.

Regardless if you chose to engage with your market with social media or chose to ignore it, I would encourage you to actually decide, make a conscious decision either way. Social media is not a fad, it is not trivial, and it is not going away – it is actually just in its infancy. If you invest the time required to craft a thoughtful social media strategy your results will be transformational for you and your brand.

Gary Vaynerchuk Video on The Thank You Economy

Gary Vaynerchuk is a phenomenon and he has a lot to say about the success of your business – are you listening? In this video Gary Vee talks about social media and your prospects for success in the new economy, the thank you economy. This video was recorded by Fora TV on November 5, 2010 at the second annual Innovation Forum at the Morgan Library in New York City.

Watching this video will be the best :10:31 you can spend today because your investment of time will repay you consistently and in many unexpected ways.

Facebook Fan Pages Part Two: Determine Your Facebook Page’s Goals and Purpose

Assuming you read my first post on the topic of Facebook fan pages, you likely have a good idea of why you should establish a fan page for your business. Now that you have decided to take action, we need to explore the “why” behind your fan page by answering a simple question – What do you want to accomplish with your Facebook page?

Yet the answer is more complex than the question. Ultimately you likely want to use your Facebook page to make more money and grow your business. But there are many ways to accomplish that and many directions to take. Perhaps a better question is, “How do you want to use your Facebook page to grow your business?” Do you want to build your brand, grow a list, or network with others in your niche, etc.

Don’t worry, you’re not expected to know the answer right now. However, before you begin creating your fan page it’s important to have a clear direction and measurable objectives.

As mentioned in part one there are several outcome to be accomplished using a Facebook fan page. Here is a summary for recap:

Traffic generation
List building
Selling products/services
Announcements and promotions
Content and added value
Building a community/strengthening relationship
Impact on search engine optimization
Do you need documented evidence that Facebook fan pages work? According to a survey by 4,000 people who “Liked” the top 20 brands with Facebook pages spend an average of $71.84 more each year on that brand’s products or services. There is a loyalty factor and awareness factor that come into play here and the proof is very compelling.
