I Want It. The Art of Social Selling.

Uncategorized

I'm attending a conference in Florida and it's very inspiring.  The weather is beautiful and it puts me in a great frame of mind to find the creativity of selling.  While I was listening to a presentation this morning... I stumbled across something.  That's the "want" of social selling. Every post you create is to build your relationship with your audience.  Just like you wouldn't walk up to someone and start screaming "BUY THIS!", you must subtlety open the dialog in person.  Same holds true for online marketing.  Think about how you use social media, you're relaxed (wasting time) scrolling...

Cheaters?

Uncategorized

Cheaters never win and winners never cheat... So the saying goes.   Amazon has taken this to a new level by naming individuals in a lawsuit for purchasing "good" reviews. If you were thinking of hiring a fiverr type site to gain positive feedback, think twice.  The article I just read shows Amazon closing down websites and bring suit against advertisers looking to harm the integrity of its feedback program. It's a bold move by Amazon and one to look to for leadership in online marketing.  Your terms of service are only as good as your willingness to enforce. Again,...

A few secret Facebook features to make your day easier. I read a great article this morning about Facebook features. I didn't know there were stock images available to use for free, that you could check out your competition by setting up a pages to watch feature, or that you could schedule posts from within the ad creation. There are a couple more tips, but I wanted to focus on these because they can really help your presence in the small pond. Starting with images.
