You should be active on Facebook and Twitter/LinkedIn/Pinterest and don’t forget Instagram/Slideshare and blogging and video for YouTube/Vine and now native for Twitter and Facebook!

Whew…no wonder you feel overwhelmed!

Feeling they should be “everywhere” and not knowing what to post in the first place are two of the biggest concerns many of my clients have.

Let’s put the biggest social media myths to rest.

Back in 2007 when Facebook (FB) first started gaining traction with the mainstream America, there were “Fan” pages. Most users interacted using their personal profiles without any thought of business.

However, as users (and FB) matured, more businesses realized they needed to use the largest social media platform to connect with their customers.
Fan Pages became Business Pages. Businesses started tracking how many people saw and engaged with their posts. Advertising became possible and Eureka! Facebook discovered their cash cow.
 

 Facebook Business Pages Then Vs. Now
Initially, if people “liked” your page, your posts would show up in their feeds. Next, if they interacted with your posts, they’d see more of your posts. (That’s a simplification of the algorithm).

Facebook is a powerhouse of users, but if your audience never sees your posts, what's the point? Here's what you can expect from the giant for SMB.

Forget everything you know about SEO for a moment. Think about your customers instead. Who are they? What questions do they have? What problems do you solve?

Review your buyer personas and ask yourself how you can make their lives easier.

Review your existing content assets and determine where they fall within the buying cycle and, if they answer the questions your prospects have.

You could make a simple grid to help you keep track. Like this one.

Targeted traffic is the lifeblood of a successful website. Great content attracts and qualifies leads so you shorten the sales cycle. Where are your gaps?

10 Productivity Tips to Help You Work Smarter
Start your week off with a great plan!

TIP: Do your most important work first.
"As a business owner, it’s really easy to get sucked into the busyness of helping clients and managing my team. And while those things are extremely valuable and necessary, my job as the leader is to work on my business, not in my business.

To avoid getting sucked into the vortex of putting out fires and responding to other people, I focus on getting the business of Blue Kite work done first. That might mean I’m writing blog posts, working on our new website (coming very soon!) or developing proposals for prospective clients.

For you, your most important work might look a little bit different. But, I challenge you to focus on the one or two things that will help your business first before you do anything else. "

TIP: Don’t check email first thing in the morning. 
excellent resources:

TIP:  Make a daily to-do list the night before.

Great insights on the various social media platforms - written by a teenager.

And not based on studies or metrics derived from "Big Data" Analytics

Do you want to know your prospect’s burning questions? Of course you do.

That way you can show up in more helpful ways for them. Do this enough and you’ll become a respected and trusted advisor. Do you think that position will help you gain more referrals and make more sales over time?

I hope you said, “yes”.

Let the groaning begin…yes, you know the year is fast coming to a close. With that comes end of year reports and strategizing for future success. So, tell me, what will you do different in the coming months?

Are you happy with your content marketing strategy ? Are you reaching your prospects, answering their questions and nurturing leads effectively?

Or, are you still struggling to connect the dots between your ebooks and your ROI?

Dr. Jeff has rid my back/shoulder of chronic pain that's bothered me for 15 years. When I first started seeing him, the pain was radiating down my arm into my hand and making it painful to type. Now, I think he's a miracle worker! Plus, the staff is always pleasant and I'm in and out quickly. Thanks!
