Hot Links Friday: Facebook, Instagram, Extra Money with Social Media…
I know some of you been begin for the Hot Links Friday post, my bad guys too much stuff going on, [no no no Wilson, no excuses please–you say]. And I agree with you, so here they are.
Okay, so you have a Facebook page locked & loaded, but you’re not sure why nobody is liking your page. Problem solved. Justin Wise posted a great article to help you spread the word 20 different ways. This should help increase conversion and growth of your Facebook page.
Even with all those professionals, who call themselves “social media experts or gurus”, there’s still demand for social media services. If you have some skills, but you haven’t monetized them, this short post can give you a head-start to start earning an extra income on the side.
When I first bought an iPhone I used it to make phone calls, text and browse the web a lot, then Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ showed up and my eyeballs were glued to it (Hey don’t look at me like I’m the only one doing it). Anyways, these other applications have taught me more ways to leverage the web and make tons of connections. Now there’s a new tool you can use, it’s Instagram, and this post explains 5 tactics for brands to leverage Instagram.
You know you want to be a social business, but you’re not sure if your business really needs to be social. Pam Moore wrote down ten questions that I believe every business should be asking themselves before they jump in the social bandwagon.
Facebook and Google are going at it as we speak for the best features in a social network, it seems. It’s obvious that Google is no contender yet. Everything Google odes from now on seems like Facebook has to go and make their own version of it. I think Facebook is scared, I mean where is the originality? Anyway, Francisco broke these two new features apart, and shared his thoughts about why they might not be as popular as we might think they’ll be.
How does a business get started with a location-based marketing campaign? In this post Mike Schneider and Aaron Strout made a simple list for businesses that are interested in doing it themselves. Once you get started people can really dig in and reap the benefits using services like Foursquare, Yelp, Scvngr, and Gowalla.
One of my favorite blogs to follow is thinktraffic.net because of all their epic shit they put on the web. Corbett Barr and his team really know how to build a thriving audience, and this new challenge is going to change a lot of people’s lives. They’re literally taking everyone from their hand and walking them step-by-step to success. In 15 minutes you have a domain picked out and your blog hosting set up ready to go.
There you go, another week of Hot Links Friday. I know that you won’t read all of these, but I’m sure that you’ll click on the one that most interests you. Whichever you decide to read, you’ll learn something useful that you can maybe apply next week to your business online.
