The Yearning Of Social Media

I posted this tip on Twitter: "#twittertip Our greatest yearning is for connection. Not another link to info. Connect with someone today". This is one of the greatest cries of mankind. Why do you think that Twitter and Facebook have gotten as big as they have, if this were not true? I love a good [...]

Are News Papers Staying Relevant?

I was at a Women in Business Lunch and Learn Tuesday and I overheard in a conversation that a notable business was getting some good old ATV loving. She was going to be featured on the TV news. As I listened, I found out that the local newspaper was not going to do an interview or mention [...]

It’s Not All About The Numbers

It sent this Twitter tip out on Twitter Saturday: "#twittertip don't worry about numbers, work on great quality relationships. That's the true value of Twitter". I have been giving this much consideration over several months. When I read Scott Stratten's @unmarketing book called Unmarketing, it reaffirmed what I have been thinking. Social media really requires [...]

Facebook Profiles Not For Business Use

I still see it on a regular basis. Businesses have set themselves up on Facebook Profiles. Facebook Profiles are not to be used for "Business" or anything other than personal use. If you set up a business on a Facebook Profile, Facebook can and will pull it down when they find it. All your hard [...]

Don’t Take Yourself Too Serious

Business can be a very serious matter; but at the end of the day there still has to be a little fun in the mix. It can't always be about the money. Sometimes you just have to make your customers laugh and let them know that you are human. I posted this on my Facebook [...]

Make Things Happen By Connecting With Others

One of the things I learned in business early was that I had to get off my seat, get out and look to make something happen. A watched phone will not ring either. When it comes to your social media connections, you have to reach out to others. Waiting for those golden connections won't pay [...]

Wednesday was the first day of the 40 hour social media training program for real estate agents in Dartmouth. Before I began the "Why" of social media section of the training, I decided to do a check up on their laptops and see how safe they were. The first thing we checked was to see [...]

Social Media Meets Computer Skills

The office laptop would not work with the projector and the guy from the government looked at me with these puppy dog eyes. He asked if he could use my laptop. It was for our AWENS board meeting and I said yes. I asked him if his USB flash drive had any deadly viruses on it. He say "No". [...]
