Have you ever thought of the Twitter Group DM feature as something more than just a basic messaging system?

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? 

NB: Twitter Group DMs only work if you use  the official Twitter app (mobile / web) or TweetDeck...

#twittertips   #twittermarketing  
Recently, Twitter's oft-neglected Direct Message (DM) tool added a group DM function, a feature that was well-received, but then seems to have gone nowhere. This should not be the case as it's incredibly useful. Group DMs on Twitter have the power to become real game-changers. This could fundamentally alter how you use Twitter and how much value…

The next time someone advises you to follow your passion(s), ask them how the 9-to-5 job is going. Because the whole "you won't work a day in your life anymore" is a myth.

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".

This still happens too often on the Internet. 

My solution: File a DCMA takedown (https://www.dmca.com/FAQ/What-is-a-DMCA-Takedown)
 
Just a heads up that many a content marketer might want to take a look at this site as they "republish" content without actually asking the permission of the authors.

Then they get snippy with same authors when they ask for the STOLEN content to be removed!

You GOTTA get permission before you re-purpose/repost/republish people's stuff. PLAIN and SIMPLE!

And if they say NO you deal with it!

All I could think of while reading this article was: "Finally an intelligent conversation on Google+!"

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 +Casey Newton 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."

#googleplus   #google  
One day in 2013, I received an email from Google informing me that YouTube was preparing to fix its notoriously bad comment section. The proposed savior was Google+, then a little over 2 years old....

Do you send newsletters to your prospects? If not, you should. When it comes to promotion, emails are still preferred over social media sites. 

In my latest contribution to the +Paper.li 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.

I'm not going to comment on the emotions I'm experiencing right now. I'll just say that Yelp is completely wrong here. 

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 +Yelp and this dentist. 

UPDATE: Thank you to +David Kutcher 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. 

#businesstips  
The Yelp page is being bombarded by negative reviews written by people who dislike the trophy hunter's latest "victory."

+Elizabeth Stubbs, people have been doing that on social networks too. And I'm pretty sure that this guy is being flooded with emails as we speak. 

Thank you all for your comments!

Don't fall for domain registrars scamming you as a way to get you to transfer your domain to them at inflated prices. This one is at 2-3x the rate I'm currently paying through my registrar.

I am originally from France and finding French food that tastes as such in Winnipeg can be challenging. Chez Sophie is the best French restaurant in the city. The owners have done a fantastic job promoting themselves and adapting to the local audience. Update: The pizza recipe has changed. The service as well. I'm not as impressed as I used to be!
