I need to watch this again.  +Nancy Gaines This is the kind of hangout I'd like to have with you and invite people too -  This is the new way to meet folks and share your passions - 
 
Internet Marketing, in the new, Social Media Age, does NOT have to be so complicated. But it is a LOT OF WORK! Maybe the glamour of flashy membership sites and schemes and fool-proof formulas to get rich  with little or no real effort is dimming, and IT SHOULD BE! ... but this doesn't change the fact that anyone could take on the REAL challenge and create something significant. You just have to do Smart research, make Smart choices, 

We have been promoting for 8 months what I call, "The Internet Marketing Tripod." The "table," or platform, which stands in support of a good online marketing campaign, has 3 legs:

1) A Website,

2) Social Media, supported by Google+ and Hangouts On Air, and...

3) YouTube Video Marketing.

When these 3 things are properly integrated, ANYONE can build a potentially significant marketing campaign. Will they be successful? Well, success depends on many things. Our best guidance is to show good examples.

So, SMMSmarties for this week highlights +Heather Kraafter  and her Internet Marketing Machine, which, interestingly enough, LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE AN INTERNET MARKETING TRIPOD!  This day we get to ask her how she did it, what hurdles she cleared, and what she plans for the future development for her business.

Heather is a contributing member in Andrew Hatchett's User2User-Live! community, and has her own community as well - +kraafterskommunity - where she teaches, shares, and helps people, and sets one of the best examples of "being of service," that I've found.

Heather's connections online are...

Google+:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/+HeatherKraafter/posts

Google+ Kraaftshaak Page/:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/+Kraaftshaak/about

and, the Kraafters Kommunity:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/109488046506790209024   
Heather uses her Google + personal profile as a way to interact with other like minded folks who may be interested in crafts, mixed media, art and art journaling as a way of expressing themselves.

She also posts about web tips and tricks such as using G+ Hangouts, Business Hangouts, website tools, social media tips & tricks and anything she thinks will help a small business person just like herself.

SMMSmarties and R and D Hotline endorses and supports Heather, her services, and products, and we thank her for her willingness to share on Saturday Morning Marketing Smarties.

Joining me and contributing to this event with Heather will be the usual suspects....

... and of course, yours truly – Roland Takaoka, of R and D Hotline, your host, and sponsor of Saturday Morning Marketing Smarties.

Let's have some fun, and learn by example as Heather Kraafter offers herself as a great example of how to do things right - the way "Marketing Smarties" should!

Introduction
WARNING: Mild cartoon humor, general female violence, consistent spelling and typing errors. Play at your own risk.  Website: www.dapoppins.com  Twitter: Dapoppins@Dapoppins

After graduating from Northwest Nannies in 1988 I was hired immediately for a full time, live in position. I worked full time as a Nanny for the next ten years until I married and had children of my own. While my kids were growing I stayed connected to the child care industry by volunteering in the classroom, at church, and maintained my relationship with Northwest Nannies through temporary work. I took a few classes in 2011 and ended up with a Certified Nursing Certificate, which qualified me to also work with the elderly.  I don't consider myself a teacher, but I do think of myself as a bit of a bossy caregiver. With over 20 years of reading aloud and singing silly songs to children, I'm passionate about storytelling, creative expression, and encouraging the imaginations of all ages. I've been blogging since 2006 at Dapoppins.com
