    Hi, I am the owner of a cosmetic lab and we produce organic cosmetics. We had a bussiness fan page in Facebook, we had almost 1 500 fans, a lot of educational info, promotions, adds, etc. And last Tuesday FB disables our page, they send me an e mail saying that the pg was threatening, obscene and other things. The name of the page is Aromas para el Alma, there has to be a huge mistake, we follwed all the rules and we really want to recover the page. Please help us.

    I am definitely interested in becoming a member.  I am very limited in my knowledge of social media.  I have over 1500 friends on my Facebook and would have no idea how to leverage that in my favor.  Thanks.

  • Paul Krueger

    Hi, I got alot out of your webinar today thanks.
     I am just starting to get an understanding on promoting my site. I was wondering what exactly do you mean when you said you had to surrender the domin to faCEBOOK?
    Regards, Paul Krueg

  • Charles000

    Hi Mari –
    I found your website by accident, but am glad I did.
    Being the veteran uber-Facebook expert that you are, I am wondering, what is your opinion of the “new” Facebook?
    I appreciate any response you might offer.  As for my opinion about the new Facebook ? 
    This is the wrong direction for FaceBook to be heading toward.  My original interest in Facebook was having access to a fun, easy virtual meeting place for various friends and comrades to visit, share some photos and so on.
    I NEVER had any interest in FB becoming some sort of corporate data mining commodity . . . and yet, that is exactly what FB is aiming at.
    At the very least, FB should continue providing its original format to ordinary users, and offer this new “enhanced” version to those who might want this.
    The general public tends to be very wary of any sort of hard sell, aggressive or predatory stealth marketing techniques that may be encountered.
    Any thoughts about this ???
    best regards – Charlres

    Hi Charles — I tend to just go with the flow when it comes to Facebook. They will constantly innovate and strive to serve FOUR primary audiences: 1) users, 2) advertisers, 3) businesses and brands, and 4) stakeholders/investors. It’s a fine dance but somehow Zuckerberg has managed since 2006. :) I’m a big believer in ‘caveat emptor’ – the users need to decide how much personal information they share. It’s a free site and we need to be responsible for our own privacy, security and safety.

    Hi Mari! I’m interested in joining your Inner Circle but am wondering what time the calls are.  I work a full time job as well as starting up my business so sometimes the calls are hard to make.

    Hi Mari,
    Would the Social Media Inner Circle help me in promoting your products? I would love to know how socia media works by becoming one of your affiliates before I go into any ventures of my own. Thank you for your time!

  • Karrie

    Hi Mari!  I was watching a recording of a webinar you gave recently, but had to pause halfway through, left the recording paused on my computer, and someone accidentally closed my browser, and now I can’t figure out where I got to it!  I do sign up for a lot of stuff through HubSpot…could that have been it?  Anyway, if you could share the link so I can finish watching, that’d be great!  I was soaking up your knowledge like a little social media sponge!

    Hi Mari!

    I understand yourrrelationship marketing course is being put on hold. Do you have any other way for me to do some of the training with you or know anyone else who might? I really want to be exceptional at it ?

  • http://marismith.com/ Mari Smith

    Hi @kimmcnaughton:disqus — ahh, not so much put on hold, as we have a Facebook course coming out this month. And a summit in the fall. Then the Relationship Marketing course is up next, but we’ll be opening the doors sooner! I’m assuming you have my book, yes? I’m excited to work with you.

  • http://marismith.com/ Mari Smith
