They say that the best way to learn something is to teach it, so since I am pretty much a Facebook newbie at this point, please indulge me while I share with you what little I know about Facebook Page marketing at this early stage.

I finally gave in and joined Facebook a few weeks ago at the prompting of several of my marketing friends and mentors. The convincing factor was the opportunity to sign up, create a “page” and use that page to market and promote my Home Business Resources website.

I still have some questions and concerns about the crossover between my main Facebook site and my new page, but I am sure it will become more clear as I get more experience with it all. For now, let me highlight a few recommended elements of marketing with Facebook pages. … Read the rest of this entry

I debated whether or not to add this final bit about marketing on Twitter, but hey, what’s a web log for if not to share your thoughts and opinions? Included here are some of my personal preferences on who to follow on Twitter, when and why.

I have several Twitter accounts, each with a different focus or serving a different purpose. A couple of my accounts are to promote my home business and Internet Marketing interests.

One practice among social marketers is to follow other members of a social site in the hopes that they will in turn follow you. This is something I do regularly and I have found to be effective when approached reasonably and with purpose. … Read the rest of this entry

Social Marketing on Twitter, Part Two

The key to success with Social Marketing is simply “getting social.” In part one of Social Marketing on Twitter I highlighted the importance of setting up your Twitter profile. In Part Two, we will look at interacting with other members.

The purpose for getting social with other members is to create exposure for you and your business and to build relationships of trust.

One way to start making your presence known is to post or “tweet” comments, questions and information relevant to your marketing niche and the interests of your targeted prospects. This is also a great way to draw responses and interaction from other members.

Another good thing to do is to watch for interesting comments posted by other members and “retweet” any that you think might interest your prospects and followers. … Read the rest of this entry

Social Marketing on Twitter

I’ve been learning more about marketing on Twitter this week. It’s all part of a four week Social Marketing training program and friendly competition sponsored by the mentors of the Affiliate Power Group (APG). This week, it’s Twitter.

Twitter describes itself as a “Real-time information network that connects you to the latest stories, ideas, opinions and news about what you find interesting.”

How big is the market potential on Twitter? Well, apparently people are using the popular social site because Twitter boasts more than 140,000,000 active users (that’s 140 million!) and around 340,000,000 tweets per day. Looks like a lot of potential to me! … Read the rest of this entry

Facebook Social Network Still a Mystery

Well, I bit the bullet and joined the Facebook social network one day last week. I have received some excellent coaching from my Internet Marketing mentors in the Affiliate Power Group, but Facebook is still a mystery to me.

I am finding my way around the social site just fine, but you know how it is with things: every day I discover something new, or learn a better way to use a certain feature.

I am still not exactly clear on which part of Facebook to use at certain times, or where some things that I post are going to turn up or who is going to see them. … Read the rest of this entry

GT Bulmer | Social Marketing Strategy GT Bulmer © Affiliate Power Central | GT @ Google+

Building a successful online business has never been easy. Yes, it is very easy to start a business, but making a success of it is something else. Adding to the challenge is the need to have a strong Social Marketing strategy.

Social Marketing has become the big thing in recent times. If done right, it can be a powerful way to build your web presence and your brand. The problem is, there are so many social networking sites and so many approaches to how you can use them for Internet Marketing.

Personally, I am STILL trying to make my way through the confusing maze of social networking. I am doing well in some areas and not so good in others. Don’t tell my spouse I admitted this, but I need help. Fortunately, I have found it. … Read the rest of this entry

Quite by accident, my previous post is the perfect lead-in to today’s post! Today I will highlight an excellent Summer Olympic Challenge for enthusiastic Internet Marketers. My previous post highlighted the Olympics in a different way.

In that post, I related some of the Olympic 2012 events to elements of marketing online. In this post, I will tell you about a great contest for marketers where you can win some nice prizes (more than $1,000 worth!) while learning and practicing some highly beneficial Social Marketing skills.

In my opinion, the best thing about this contest is that you are going to win one way or the other.
