    Mari, Nice site as usual way over delivering with generousity in information and shares. No wonder your the “Pied Piper of Face Book” play and learn with Mari and soon you’ll have your own following listening to your song.

  3. Hilary DeCesare on June 8, 2009 at 12:24 pm

    Hi Mari, do you do private coaching? I am very interested in working with you. I recently launched our site January 15th, 2009. check out link to broadcast. http://www.newsclipsetc.com/clients/DottedLine_NC8_2_27_09_3pm_GirlAmbition.wmv

    Girl Ambition fills the void for tween girls who have moved on from younger websites like Club Penguin but are not ready for more advanced sites like Facebook and YouTube. Parent’s get peace of mind knowing their daughters are learning the internet rules in a secure place.

    My number is 925-200-3582

    I look forword to hearing from you,

  4. kim on October 9, 2009 at 12:00 am

  5. Nixole on March 28, 2010 at 8:05 pm

    Do you cover anything on FBML, I am interested in becoming a member with you but I really need to learn FBML so i can make myself an awesome facebook fan page. Thanks

  6. Cherry Rahtu on June 1, 2010 at 9:20 pm

    Nixole,my opinion fbml is very similar as html, you can learn almost everything about fbml is from here http://wiki.developers.facebook.com/index.php/FBML , hope it helps, have a great day 😉

  7. Andrea Becerra Kriebel on June 6, 2010 at 4:30 pm

    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.

  8. Mari Smith on June 16, 2010 at 8:46 pm

    Oh no – this is terrible news. Wow, how awful. Usually it's best to fill out a form on Facebook in order to get them to respond… see if you can find a form in the Help Center. Keep me posted!

  9. Silvia on June 25, 2010 at 10:04 am

    Seems like your WhyFacebook page doesn't work anymore…

  10. Business Coach on April 8, 2011 at 5:29 pm

    Hi Mari. When will you be relaunching the Monthly support and Quick Start options?

  11. Amyl1957 on May 2, 2011 at 3:04 am

    When do you think that you will offer the Social Marketing Method again? Do you offer any other type of training? I have your book and I have been reading through it.

  12. Kevin Hayes on June 7, 2011 at 4:34 am

    Looking forward to you relaunching your Social Marketing Method. Is there an email list to sign up for?

    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.

  14. Paul Krueger on July 28, 2011 at 1:57 am

    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

  15. Charles000 on September 25, 2011 at 9:31 pm

    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

  16. Mari Smith on October 9, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    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. 

  17. Mari Smith on October 9, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    Awesome – please do join us today, Jeremiah! The Social Media Inner Circle is now open for new members: http://innercirclewithmari.com

  19. Mari Smith on October 9, 2011 at 1:24 pm

    Thank you for asking! The Social Marketing Method has been rebranded to Social Media Inner Circle and is now open for new members:http://innercirclewithmari.com. Come join us – we have a vibrant Facebook Group too!

    Thank you for asking! The Social Marketing Method has been rebranded to Social Media Inner Circle and is now open for new members:http://innercirclewithmari.com. Come join us – we have a vibrant Facebook Group too!

    I took the Quick Start off the market and currently have no plans to recreate it — as soon as I make training videos on Facebook, the platform changes! 🙂 The Inner Circle is the best value for sure and now with the new secret group, you’ll get TONS of support for a mere $27/month!

  22. Mari Smith on October 9, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    Aww thank you for saying, June!! 

  23. Deanna Gibbons on November 5, 2011 at 2:41 pm

    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.

  24. Mertminer on November 13, 2011 at 5:12 pm

    This seems to be very informative, but don’t take my word for it.

  25. Margarito Garcia on March 14, 2012 at 8:25 pm

    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!

  26. Karrie on June 1, 2012 at 12:42 pm

    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!

  27. Desirablycritical on June 7, 2013 at 6:20 am

    This is amongst the most inane websites I have ever seen. The world and every single economy in it would be better off without people like you.

  28. Hardey Leone on October 29, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    I agree. It is vile.

  29. Den on January 6, 2014 at 10:03 am

    I agree. Cluttered!

  30. Tiffany Odutoye on April 14, 2014 at 6:19 am

    Mari, when will you relaunch the live immersion styled events for 2014/15?

  31. Mari Smith on May 6, 2014 at 2:30 pm

    Hi @virtualpartner:disqus!! Aha, thank you kindly for asking! My next immersion style live event will be the second week of October 2014. 🙂 Stay tuned for more details coming shortly.

  32. Dimple on June 5, 2014 at 12:36 am

    I was on one of your Google+ hangouts webinar about 3 months ago and you mentioned a new program you were launching….was it Inner Circle?

  33. Audrey on July 5, 2014 at 8:59 am

    Hello- I have done a couple of your courses- I need something now to battle the low rate of who sees my business page posts. What is your most current program- there are not dates on them… and I might also be interested in a private consultation as well.

  34. Kim McNaughton on July 18, 2014 at 7:01 am

    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 ?

  35. Mari Smith on July 19, 2014 at 10:53 am

    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.

  36. Mari Smith on July 19, 2014 at 10:54 am

    Hi Audrey — most current program for Facebook marketing is this one: https://marismith.com/facebook-marketing-masterclass/ We just completed it on May 19th, 2014 so it’s still very relevant and the Facebook group is active with good peer support and some access to me. Be sure to also read my latest blog post just published yesterday: https://www.marismith.com/how-facebook-calculates-what-appears-in-your-news-feed/

  37. Kim McNaughton on July 19, 2014 at 11:54 am

    Yes I do have your book! I am excited to work with you as well Mari! Please let me know if you need anyone to demo it or anything before you launch ????

  38. Scott Figaro on July 21, 2014 at 11:46 am

    Good Afternoon, Not so much interested in learning as I am far too busy. But I am interested if you are for hire to get a company set up social media and direction wise to give the Ka Pow a business needs for that extra edge over competitors in regards to client/public engagement. Regards, Scott
