STUNNING pic! Possible the inside of a violin or cello by the look of it!
 
Tiny Worlds: Inside Musical Instruments 

This is an astonishing look inside the unseen airways of common musical instruments. It's simply beautiful. 

The openness and serene lighting makes these seem like a peaceful place to explore. I wish I could somehow shrink down and walk around in this one below. 

I imagine this could be one heck of a cool architecture project.

+Post Ads - Now THIS is a FANTASTIC innovation for marketing your business on Google :) 
 
+Post Ads Are Here

Google has now released this ad capability to any advertiser with a minimum of 1000 Google+ followers. Advertisers can choose to make a post to their Google+ page an interactive ad within the Google display network.

Additionally, Google is rolling out the option to make a Hangout On Air a +post, as well as the option of having your most recent post automatically be used as a +post ad. Facebook has a similar feature within Facebook Advertising to automatically promote your most recent post, and it's extremely efficient and effective.

The original story below has more detailed information and examples, and will continue to be updated.

What do you think? Will +post ads be effective at not only promoting a business, but also making Google+ a more ingrained and mainstream facet of the Internet? Is a 1000 follower minimum asking too much?

Brands who are actively using their Google+ Pages will be able to use their status updates to generate display ads which will be displayed across the Google network. Ads are interactive, and can include HOAs.

Facebook Nearby Friends is based around broadcasting how far you are from friends, not your exact coordinates, and that's why it could succeed where other..

If this does come to fruition, do you think people would trust Facebook for this?
If reports by the Financial Times and TechCrunch are to believed, Facebook wants your money. The Financial Times reported this week that Facebook is looking into adding electronic money transferring to its ecosystem. Stories say that the social network is … Continue reading →

Introduction
Helloooo! Daz here (generally known as Dr Daz) and I’d like to welcome you to my Google+ Profile.

'Dr Daz Social' is my own voice in the social media marketing world - curating & commenting on world class social media content to help grow your business online (with a few of my own hints and tips thrown in here and there!)

If you're after a daily dose of how YOU can use social media to connect your business with its customers, get more brand recognition, and ultimately bring in more money, please add me to one of your circles :)

WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP YOU

I specialise in Social Media Relationship Marketing, both as a mentor to small businesses who want to do it themselves, and by providing a personalised Social Media Management service for those who want to outsource the techniques. Both these services are intended to amplify the personality of YOUR business through highly strategic social marketing campaigns and strategies that build a long lasting and memorable relationship with your clients and customers. 

To put it simply, I focus on : 

✔ Social Media Marketing - with a particular interest in Google+ & Facebook
✔ Social Media Management - placing your business 'front-of-mind' in your niche
✔ Social Media Consultation - do you need help and advice on your own social media integration?
✔ Retail (online and offline) - how to reach more potential and existing customers
✔ SEO & Website Development - getting found online and converting customers when they find you




► SOCIAL MEDIA AND YOUR BUSINESS

These days every savvy business owner, general manager and department head knows how important it is to spend time properly planning their day to day marketing campaigns, whether that be leaflet drops, advertisements in the paper, tv ads, signage or radio campaigns, so why not do the same with social media marketing? 

So many people create a Facebook page or a Twitter profile for their business, because they hear that this is the way forward in the modern marketing world - HOWEVER, they either don't have the time to think about regularly posting great engaging content, have no idea how to integrate the platforms into their pre existing marketing, or continually post spam about their special offers in the hope that someone will take notice.....but believe me – THEY WON’T! 

Word-of-mouth marketing is without a doubt the most powerful form of marketing there is - FACT! Anything recommended by a friend or family member is far more likely to make more of an impact on you than receiving it from someone you don’t know, or don't know well. This is why social media is the perfect vehicle to amplify your brand message - to build a following of regular customers who think of YOU whenever they need your products or services. Encouraging people to interact with and share your content online AND verbally should be the primary aim of successful social media marketing. If they look forward to, and enjoy your content, they are more likely to want to spend money with you when you advertise your products or services!



► WHY CHOOSE SOMEONE OUTSIDE YOUR BUSINESS TO MANAGE YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA FOR YOU?

As mentioned above, social media, when used correctly, is an extremely effective tool for business growth through word of mouth marketing, keeping you front-of-mind, and building a lasting connection with your customers. There are many businesses today enjoying incredible results from their social media presence. BUT, the people running it for them actually KNOW and keep up with the correct techniques that SHOULD be used to generate relevant content, active engagement, & ultimately more brand awareness, & they are executing these things consistently, every day. 

Even if businesses actually know what they need to be doing, most business owners, managers and staff, are too busy with the day to day running of their business to strategically target & interact with the right people on social media effectively. These could be potential customers OR current customers, as well as joint venture partners & suppliers. In this new world where people are having as many conversations online as face-to-face, building strong & lasting connections with your social community is crucial to YOUR business successfully growing online!

If you already have someone in your business that has the time to do that on a daily basis, as well as stay up to speed with all the constant changes on each social platform, adapt to and refine the techniques that make your social presence really work for you, AND plan the posts that should be going out on a daily basis with optimised graphics and sharable content, then GREAT… you should be connecting with your ideal customer, & your social community should be at your fingertips. If they aren't and YOU need help from someone who knows EXACTLY how to apply a strategically tailored social layer over your business …. I can DEFINITELY help you!


Savvy business owners are using Social Media to achieve FANTASTIC results – will you be one of them?


Please feel free to send me a private message with any problems you're having with your social media marketing, questions you need answering, or help with how on earth to set all this 'stuff' up for your business!


Let's sort it!
