Ten Steps to Leverage Your Blog Posts With Facebook Notes

If you’re an active blogger (and I recommend online marketers for sure have a blog), here’s a ten-step process to create valuable exposure, build rapport, nurture relationships and advance your credibility: Make sure you’re importing your primary blog using the Facebook Notes app. Check that you’re already friends with certain prominent people in your industry.

Not All Internet Marketers Are Created Equal

People do business with people they know, like and trust. Period. When it comes to internet marketing, your decision to buy depends on whether you resonate with the marketer’s style… or not. This goes for both the online and offline world, e.g. whether you’re reading a web sales letter/email or you’re attending a live seminar. I believe we’re smack in the midst of a big movement. And it’s a movement away from testosterone-dominated, aggressive marketing

Annoying Facebook Friends? Give ‘em the FaceBOOT!

How do you feel about Facebook members on a mission to amass the max number of ‘friends’ in record time… for no apparent reason? Certain Facebook peeps have been getting right up my nose with this approach lately. I mean, if your name is John Reese, fair enough!

How To Turn off Facebook Chat

It’s arrived: Facebook chat just blasted it’s way onto my computer screen with several nonsensical instant messages. I knew this feature was being tested in certain Networks across Facebook and I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about it. My attention is already massively divided without having to deal with messages on the fly from people I’m not (yet) in relationship with!!! (Can you relate?! LOL) A friend of mine recently asked how she could stop

How To Shake Hands On Facebook

Ever since I joined Facebook in July 2007, I’ve been an evangelist for including a personal message each time I make a Facebook Friend Request. No exceptions. Likewise, I’m equally passionate about receiving a personal message from incoming friends. Still, it continues to amaze me how many Facebook members miss this critical step. It’s the equivalent of attending an in-person social or business networking event, going up to a complete stranger, shoving your business card
