What’s better than a photo? Multiple photos!

Have you checked out #Instagram’s new #Layout #app ? Great for showing your service’s process, your customers’ “before” and “afters,” or your product photos in a new and compelling way, the #photocollage app is already a hit with critics and users. On today’s #LinkedInLady Show, my co-host Ken Herron and I will bring you up to date and share some examples of how your business can take advantage of this new free app for your business’ #socialmedia #marketing .

Join us today at 20.00 GMT / 4:00 p.m. ET / 1:00 p.m. PT on the All #Business Radio Network (@AllBusRadio) at: ‪‪‪‪‪‪‪‪‪‪‪‪‪http://bit.ly/abrnlive

The jury is still out on the future of #Twitter’s #Periscope – not because it hasn’t launched, but because first-to-market #videovalet #Meerkat is already controlling the market. This week, it’s all about the rapidly growing #MeerkatColony . Who knew? And #Facebook is never left on the bench. This week, they introduced three new tools for #marketers#Blueprint#LearnHow , and the #AdCopyCheatSheet . All valuable, and each one targeted to a different experience level with #advertising on Facebook. 

Want more details on the #Twitter  - #Foursquare agreement? We’ll share why this new #geodata -based relationship will be a huge boon to advertisers in general, and #smallbusiness advertisers in particular. And if you are still wondering whether your should be investing your #contentmarketing time on #Instagram or Facebook, we will report out on the latest research study.

Good Bye Google+, Hello Google Photos and Streams

Just when you thought #GooglePlus was finally past its awkward adolescent phase and was ready to start being a grown-up social network, we learned this week that it’s going to be going through some “changes.” #GooglePhotosAndStreams ( #GooglePS ?) is either an example of a tech giant eating their young, or a brilliant move – we just don’t yet know which. Ken Herron and I will share the expected changes, and the reasons behind them, on today’s #LinkedInLady Show.

And if that’s not enough, you can now embed your #Twitter video just like #YouTube , the real costs of #socialmarketing , what may be the next big #socialnetwork for local #smallbusinesses , and how to activate your audience’s brain on #socialmedia (and when you present!).
 
Still not enough? We’ll share the latest tips on handling customer complaints and customer kudos on social media plus the latest #mantrends – on #Pinterest !

Where else can you get so much actionable information for your #smallbiz in just one hour! Join us today at 21.00 GMT / 4:00 p.m. ET / 1:00 p.m. PT on the All #Business Radio Network (@AllBusRadio) at: ‪‪‪‪‪‪‪‪‪‪http://bit.ly/abrnlive

#FiftyShades is Hot #Marketing for #SmallBusinesses

Unless you have been trapped on a remote island without WiFi, you already know that this weekend is the opening of the much anticipated (and much maligned) Fifty Shades of Grey movie. This Saturday also happens to be #ValentinesDay, February 14. So what happens when you combine the premiere of a “notorious” movie with #Valentine’s Day? A #socialmedia tsunami for #smallbusiness owners and solopreneurs!

Let’s start with Christian and Anastasia. #50shades is already a trending topic on many #socialnetworks, so how can you take full advantage of it to market your products or services? On today’s show, we’ll share the examples we’re already seeing from HVAC companies (“Feeling a little hot?”), hardware stores (“Need some extra rope this weekend?”), relationship counselors (“Bring a little #50shades into your bedroom!“), and bakeries (Cupcakes with mini-handcuffs?!).

But there’s more than rope, blindfolds, and silk ties on today’s socially steamy #LinkedInLady show. If you’ve already tried #mobile #socialnetwork #Super’s single images, you’re going to love their new “comic strip” feature. And are you getting the biggest bang out of your #hashtags? They are one of marketers’ most effective tools on #socialmedia, but only if you know how to use them.

How can you tweet your Instagram pix? There’s a recipe for that!

Two years after #Instagram turned off the ability for #Twitter to display users’ photos, this past Thursday, Twitter sent out messages to their verified users, “encouraging” them to post their photos directly on Twitter, and not to tweet out their Instagram photos. So what’s a Instagram user who’s also on Twitter to do? Learn the recipe for our fast, easy, and free solution on today’s show!

Ken Herron and I have more than smart #hacks up our sleeves today for you. For example, did you know that “three-quarters of small and medium-sized businesses (#SMBs) in North America said digital marketing was effective for attracting customers,” – according to a November 2014 study by BrightLocal – and “37% planned to spend more on digital in the next 12 months. However, a lack of skill sets, budget, and time could prevent advancements from happening.” 

If #Vine’s six-second videos and Instagram’s 15-second videos still aren’t enough for your #smallbiz, Twitter has just released their 30-second video solution. And as #socialmedia becomes more important, it also requires better tools, so we’ll share our suggestions for the best new #socialmarketing tools to increase your social ROI.

Should you buy the Apple Watch?

The last time people said that a radical new product was going to fail was the #iPad. Arguably, that’s done okay. And the time before that? The #iPhone. I think we can agree it has not been a #FAIL. This week, #Apple announced its latest new product, a #watch. The #AppleWatch. And people haven’t stopped talking about it yet. 

On today’s #LinkedInLady show we’ll talk about the #socialnetworking #app that’s mysteriously missing, whether Apple’s latest will meet the same fate as #GoogleGlass and the #Amazon #FirePhone, and the one thing you absolutely must do, whether you can’t wait to stand in line to get yours or you are already tired of hearing about it.

Also on today’s show, Ken Herron and I will share what you need to know about #Facebook’s new #TopicData and the hottest new #socialmedia tools (including #Meerkat and #RINGR) people are talking and #tweeting about this week. We’ll ask you the question of whether you should pay for #LinkedIn. And finally, we’ll give you the secrets to winning your audience’s hearts in your next presentation in only seven minutes.

Google Flights: Marketer’s New Best Friend

When #Google rolls out a new #search feature, most people typically yawn, and then get on with their day. But stifle that yawn, #GoogleFlights is easy to use, completely objective, and ridiculously fast (sorry airline apps!). Even better for #marketers , it gives us a new #Google #Advertising product. Ken Herron and I will share our ideas with you on today’s show for how your #smallbusiness can make the most of it.

But there is so much more to share with you today. Last week, we told you about #VineKids . Now, just one week later, we now have #YouTubeKids ! And are you confused (or even worse, ignoring) your #GoogleAnalytics ? We want to introduce you to Narrative Science’s #QuillEngage , a free weekly or monthly report that translates Analytics’ technobabble into plain, immediately actionable English, for free!

On your #LinkedIn profile, have you ever given any thought as to the order of the items in your profile? We’ll share what Jeff Bullas has to say on the topic in his latest blog post. LinkedIn Lady show listeners understand the value of using #hashtags , but do you understand the different rules for using them on #Facebook ,   #Twitter , #GooglePlus , and other social networks? Find out on today’s show!

We’ll also share with you some great #tips on how #smallbiz can use Twitter to get more customers, and we’ll show you how to win on #Instagram !

Join us today at 21.00 GMT / 4:00 p.m. ET / 1:00 p.m. PT on the All #Business Radio Network (@AllBusRadio) at: ‪‪‪‪‪‪‪‪‪http://bit.ly/abrnlive

Are You a #LeftShark or a #RightShark with Your #Social #Marketing?

Whether you watched the #SuperBowl #halftimeshow live, or just heard about him on #socialmedia, the trending topic since Sunday’s #biggame has been #LeftShark. So what does he have to do with your #socialmediamarketing? Ken Herron and I will give you some ideas on today’s #LinkedInLadyShow.

That’s just the tip of the shark’s tooth. On today’s show, we’ll also be sharing news about #LinkedIn’s #ConnectedApp for #Android users, #Twitter’s new #InstantTimeline, Twitter’s new #QuickPromote, and the potentially explosive new #mobilevideo #app, #VineKids.

Will your brand fumble, or catch the big game ball?

You're never going to confuse the LinkedIn Lady show with ESPN, but we will give you the best game advice on how to use #socialmedia to take advantage of what’s happening in the world. #SuperBowlXLVIII is just days away and it’s time to be preparing your social #marketing strategy for the big day.

Ken Herron, my Wednesday co-host and I have got a full hour of great tips and actionable ideas for your business. Today’s hot topics include some truly cringe-worthy #MLKday twitter fails, along with our advice on how to do topical marketing effectively. We will also update you on the latest #Facebook numbers, including where online Facebook’s previously active users are moving their conversations. 

Quiz time! Which of the Top 10 most overused buzzwords are you using in your #LinkedIn profile?  And to continue your social self-improvement, are you among the many pinners who are still not yet taking advantage of #Pinterest’s great free #analytics ? Finally, did you know free mobile #app #GoogleTranslate has just kicked it up a notch, making it even easier for you to communicate with your customers?
