I hadn't until reading this excellent post from Angela Alcom. She suggests some very simple ideas. I really like the ones about topical ninja groups and the inner circle of your most loyal followers.
Now, my brain is cranking up with tons of ideas! What about you?

Passion should drive you. But, as a small business owner or solopreneur, you will have to put in hundreds of hours of work and research before you can finally ride on the wave of what many call "luck".
Then they get snippy with same authors when they ask for the STOLEN content to be removed!

To many the Plus is a failed experiment because Google tried to compete with Facebook. But I feel that it has never been about that. The platform is not a failure. It's just the perfect example of a business that pays attention to what its community and customers say.
I have always felt that Google listens to users. And as states in this post, Google+ is now finally small enough to build on. It’s focused, self-contained, and at least by Google terms, not overly ambitious."
In my latest contribution to the blog, I share five newsletter providers that will help take your business to the next level. They are all free, with paid upgrades of course.

Why? Because these reviews have everything to do with the core of the customer experience. Customers want a service provider to be a good person with positive values. Paying thousands of customer dollars to hunt animals as a game and boast about it is not part of that set of values.
This is a total red flag for both and this dentist.
UPDATE: Thank you to for the conversation, which opened my eyes to a few things.
So, let me clarify. Yelp should delete trolling and irrelevant reviews. What I feel is wrong is deleting the ones from current customers with a genuine concern about the service provider.
