Getting noticed on the online business arena is only possible if viewers are clear on what they are viewing. Put up ambiguous posting will not help to ensure the target audience nor will it ensure a successful presence on the internet. Continue reading →
Hey Guy’s and Gal’s
If you haven’t read the first post in the series go here first.
Spamming is perhaps the most annoying application that most internet users are weary of. Basically the spam element involved the sending of material in a continuous and abundant manner causing the recipient to be overwhelmed with unwanted material. Continue reading →

How should you use Social Media?
Or should I say, “How Not to Use Social Media”
Hey guy’s an gal’s, Tim here with an update on what’s happening with the improper use of Twitter and Facebook.
I recently read an article on the NY Times, written By ANDREW JACOBS Published: November 18, 2010, which read “Chinese Woman Imprisoned for Twitter Message”
An excerpt is below:
The woman, Cheng Jianping, 46, was accused of “disturbing social order” for resending a Twitter message from her fiancé that mocked young nationalists who held anti-Japanese rallies in several cities last month. The original message sarcastically goaded protesters to go beyond the smashing of Japanese products and express their fury at the heavily policed expo site. Ms. Cheng added the words: “Charge, angry youth.”
Hey Guy’s & Gal’s,
Imagine you’re in a theater packed with people. There is a hum of chatter going on all about you. The show hasn’t started yet, just people talking about what is going on. You can feel the energy from all of those people around you.
In this mass group of people you hold a solution to a problem that can help many of them. Actually your solution can help a few thousand or even millions of them.
With so much going on, how can you possibly get them to take notice? They seem so pre-occupied with sharing with each other about their days that you aren’t quite sure how you’re going to break through all that chatter.
With all of these people around you, how would you grab their attention?
Imagine that theater is packed with 500 million people, how do you get a few million of them to take notice? How would you even get a few thousand people to notice what you are up to?
Currently that is the world of Facebook. With over 500 million people online and 50% of the population being active daily there is a sea of conversation occurring.
The business owner who understands how to break into those conversations makes money. The business owner who guesses might as well just not logon.
To stand out from the crowd and dominate with your marketing,
I invite you to consider the following three methods.
Marketing Message – Your marketing message is what will quickly grab someone’s attention. Your message will separate you from the competition by quickly revealing how you can save someone time, money, and sometimes both. Just imagine in a crowd of 500 million that you were the only one wearing a neon orange shirt. That is how you powerful your message should be.
Pique Interest – After your marketing message, you can’t look like everyone else. With the ability to share information about “what’s on your mind?” you can pique interest in a variety of ways. You can share interest piquing updates, videos, photos, notes and more. The more interesting your updates the more attention you can gather. When you have their attention you can convert it into sales.
Be Where Business Happens – Have you ever seen a plastic surgeon trying to conduct business at a Starbucks? I haven’t either! Many businesses still haven’t set up their business locations on Facebook. Creating a powerful fan page is the best way to give you a platform from which to do business.
I’d love to hear how you would stand out from the crowd, by posting your thoughts below.
Have a wonderful weekend
Hey Guy’s and Gal’s,
I recently came across an article by Jon Ochs concerning Facebook accounts being hacked, I know that this may be old news but it may be good to take a few steps to help prevent it from happening in the future. Here’s his article below.
Over the past few months I have noticed a large increase in the number of Facebook accounts getting hacked or hijacked by hackers using Facebook phishing. In order to understand this, let’s first take a quick look at why Facebook accounts have become such a target for hackers.
Why are Facebook accounts being hacked?…
Facebook now has over 500 Million users, and provides such incredible demographic information, that advertisers are now flocking to it for targeted advertising. The very same affiliate marketers that have previously resorted to spam email and blog comment spam to force their message out to the public, have now discovered that by hijacking Facebook accounts, they can deliver their marketing message to the friends and connections of those account holders. These “spammy” messages are more likely to be viewed, read, or even clicked on, because they are seemingly coming from a trusted source (the original account holder).
Exactly how are these Facebook accounts being hacked and hijacked?.. Continue reading →
Are you using Facebook?
Hey Guy’s and Gal’s,
In a recent article in the New York Times they claim that The Social Networking Giant has exceeded over 500 million users around the world, and just to think it was created by a Havard Sophomore.
Here’s a part of what the article mentioned:
Facebook, the world’s largest social network, announced in July 2010, that it had 500 million users around the world. The company has grown at a meteoric pace, doubling in size since 2009 and pushing international competitors aside. Its policies, more than those of any other company, are helping to define standards for privacy in the Internet age.
The company, founded in 2004 by a Harvard sophomore, Mark Zuckerberg, began life catering first to Harvard students and then to all high school and college students. It has since evolved into a broadly popular online destination used by both teenagers and adults of all ages. In country after country, Facebook is cementing itself as the leader and often displacing other social networks, much as it outflanked MySpace in the United States. You can read the rest of the article here
Can you believe that. It’s even kicking other social networks to the curb. No wonder many offline and online business are using Facebook for connecting with current and new customers.
But really now, is it really the cat’s meow when it comes to your marketing efforts?
I was using Facebook, and did quite well in attaining followers in my niche, but then it really got mean, in the advent of Facebook Ads, competition really heated up with all the expert marketers jumping on the band wagon, or so they claimed.
And then all the other distraction like Farmville and an array of other games to occupy your time.
Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind a little R & R, but my R & R is not playing games on my pc, it’s spending quality time talking with my wife, learning about my son’s day at school.
I know many of my readers are avid fans of Facebook and that’s ok, but don’t put all your marketing efforts into social media. There many other ways to engage your customers.
Well, I guess this is enough ranting for now. I’d love to know what you think about Facebook good or bad and what your experience has been.
Have a wonderful day
Hey Guy’s and Gal’s,
In a recent article by JENNA WORTHAM of the New York Times, she wrote about the new feature that Facebook has launched recently called “Places.”
