Twitter Follow Friday

Twitter Follow Friday

    Well, its Friday and in Twitter land, we like pass on other Tweeters to others so they can follow too.  The common term for this is Follow Friday (hash word is #FF).  Rather then send out multiple Tweeters, I’m going to start listing them here (thanks to Chris Brogan’s Blog on this recommendation) and you can click to their profile then follow them.  This will be a weekly thing for me and I will be making changes or at least adding more so come back weekly! @poetpecky: So, for starters, I start with my Mom. She has always been an inspiration to me. In fact, she does a weekly blog & newsletter called “Inspiration from the Mountains” via her web site at www.bearwallowblessings.com. @chrisbrogan: He’s a savvy social networking and marketing blogger and informer. He wrote the article on doing this, rather then clogging up the Twitterverse. I think its a great idea! @SolutionCoach: I’ve recently been spending some time with Sean and he truly wants to help people big time.  He’s also on the verge of some great tools and training for business leaders and entrepreneurs.  Stay tuned there. #NoCo List: I’ve got a great list of Tweeters from Northern Colorado. Its growing and currently has at least a couple hundred. Feel free to follow it if you like. And, if you want to refer more to me, please direct message (DM) me. #Colorado List: I’ve got a list of Tweeters from Colorado, which is almost at 450. I’m sure there are many, many more but its hard to keep tracke of them. Believers-In-Christ: I am...

Social Networking – Taking advantage of Facebook, Twitter and YouTube

Social Networking: Taking advantage of Facebook,  Twitter and YouTube for your Church, Ministry, Organization or Business. April, 2010: This started as an online Webinar in November, 2009, for a Christian organization called Christian Media Assocation (CMA), at www.christianmedia.org.  Since then a lot has changed and been added (like Google Buzz) but I decided to add this to my blog and I’ve updated and added much more to make it more relevant. I will follow this up with more details about each of these awesome tools to increase your presence on the Web and hopefully to “connect” with people.  Isn’t that your ultimate goal? More will come in shorter spurts.  After several months of research and working within these social networks I’ve garnered a lot of information.  So, stay tuned.  Also, please feel free to sign up on my Newsletter as that is becoming active again. ~ Bill With all that is available on the Internet for your use, you can get overwhelmed with all of the articles, tutorials, books and even the paid-for advice that can bombard you with social networking. “Social Networking” is being talked about at an unbelievable buzz rate and the speed at which folks are signing up to do both Facebook and Twitter is amazing! In fact, the word “buzz” has become the new social networking answer from Google.  More about that in another article. So, let me help you get through the hype and help point you in the right direction to market your organization via the available social networking channels there are available. Over the next few weeks, I will share some basics...
Facebook Page, Group and Advertising

Facebook Page, Group and Advertising

Hey Everyone, Why should my business have a Facebook Business Page, Group Page or do advertising on Facebook? Answer: There are many people using Facebook and because Facebook Ads can target based on geographic location as well as keywords, what a great way to target those running businesses or people groups!  Using a business page or group page, allows more interaction with clients, potential clients and people groups. First, if you have a personal Facebook account, you can create a Facebook page for a business or a Group page for an organization.  Since I’m well known to be a web guy anyway and often share my new web projects with my Facebook friends, I chose to use my personal account to create a Group page for my business.  If you don’t have a personal Facebook account and don’t want one, you can create a business account for the sole purpose of advertising on Facebook. Once your Facebook page is created, you can click on the link “Promote Page with Ad” or “Promote Group with Ad” depending on which you choose to do.  I also setup a Fan Box that is listed on my Business web page at www.billsweb.biz which provides a link back to my Facebook Page as well as other information.  Anyone can become a fan of my Facebook Page, even off of my web site. Here are some helpful tips I found while attempting to do this setup an ad.  You need to have an image (if not using the one from your Facebook company page) as well as target information as shown below. You will need...
