Fish Tacos for lunch today…people say it’s turkey that puts you into a coma, but fish seems to work just as well…
So let’s wake up with some SEO, social media, and web business links!
First up, courtesy of the business section of Mashable – “HOW TO: Get the Most Out of Your Business Facebook Page”. Never let it be said that these guys can’t be brutally honest when it comes to how your business should be utilizing social media:
Let’s review your Page. Go ahead, pull it up. Your Facebook Page should contain all or most of these:
* Links to your blog posts
* Links to related articles (whether they’re yours or not)
This type of content is key in getting people to “Like” your page, and contributes to its overall success. And how do we define success? By getting people to interact and leave comments on your Facebook Page, as well as travel from the page to your company’s website and, of course, buying your product.
Search Engine Journal is another website that keeps delivering superb content on a daily basis. This article has been floating around the office for the past week – Writing Good Copy: Let Keywords Be Your Guide The dirty secret with SEO is that it takes time, and the best techniques are often the simplest, such as making certain your copy is clean, well-written, and keyword laden.
This is hardly a new concept, as many SEO pros will tell you that starting a campaign with Keyword Research is a “Best Practice”. But many times some of the hidden gems of keyword research go unnoticed. A carefully chosen select set of keywords is the fuel for a well structured, effective SEO campaign.
A social media link from the Social Media department at Mashable – 20 Cool Twitter Accounts for Daily Fun and Inspiration [PICS]. Why do we include this? Because it is far too easy to forget to have fun with social media. Users will know when you are not having fun, when you are spamming or just being a business mouthpiece. No one wants to interact with that person, or even listen to what they have to say. If your Twitter account is something you look forward to checking every day, that will inspire you to be more personal and easy going with your social media. Lighten up.
