Terrific information via +Peg Fitzpatrick  - scaling #social efforts can be a challenge, this can help!
Peg Fitzpatrick originally shared:
How to Scale Your Social Media Strategies
Big or small, influencer or newcomer, everyone looking to get more followers and more likes on social media—more engagement, period—seeks out strategies that work.

And what works with a platform of 11 million followers tends to work for platforms with 100, too. Don't forget we ALL started with ZERO followers

Social media is a moving ocean of posts, images, tools, ideas, and content that flows at a fast pace. You can find success by building your own social media strategy and keeping it fluid by checking and rechecking what’s working.

I’ve had the chance to check and recheck dozens of different social media strategies in managing a social media platform of 11 million. How do I do everything that I do? And what do I do, specifically? Well, I’d love to share the details with you!

Honored to be on the +Buffer blog today. If you like this, please share with your social network as well. Thank you in advance!

CUSTOMER SERVICE Checklist: 5 Basic Things Your Website Needs to Gain Visitors' Trust
Don't overlook the basics of your website--you may be turning your visitors off

Sometimes I just can't believe that these days I still run across sites that don't have the basics. The basics I'm talking about aren't about keywords or sitemaps for SEO, they're not intelligent navigation, they're not even a way to collect an email address for your weekly newsletter. While those are important for marketing, I'm talking about what's important to gain and keep the trust of your website visitors.

Here are things I've actually shouted out loud in the past few months when using an app or visiting a site for the first time.

"How the hell can I contact ANYONE at this company?"

I have had the pleasure of following, interacting with and recommending Kim here on Google+ and other social platforms for a while now. I can easily recommend her based on these interactions and getting to know Kim. She is a true professional that "knows her stuff" and can back it up!! Get to know Kim and check out her business. You will be glad you did!
