Live Event for Safer Internet Day

As today is Safer Internet Day, I decided that as part of my 'Live Stream Insiders' series of events, it would be a good opportunity to bring together some experts to help parents become more aware of the privacy features of popular apps for live streaming and live video such as Snapchat and Periscope.

Live video continues to explode this year especially with the soon to be available Facebook Live available from everyone's Facebook profiles.

You can participate in the event here

I am delighted that I will b joined by experts in #Snapchat, #OnlineReputation and legal aspects of social media.

How to submit your podcast to Google Play Music (US submissions)

If you host a podcast you have probably been waiting for notification on when Google Play Music will be live.

I am not in the US so I can not submit my show, but I am fortunate to be in the #FIRPodcastNetwork hosted by +Shel Holtz and he and I have been in email conversation and he has confirmed that the FIR podcasts he submitted are now live.

If you want to learn more about how to submit your podcast to Google Play Music then watch this video tutorial from +Daniel J. Lewis (he created this in October 2015 and as i can not access the site to submit I can not confirm if anything has changed - but it will give you an idea of what to expect).

If Google Play Music is available for you to submit your podcast you can go here to submit it

Lifetime access to Stock Unlimited for US$49 (sponsored post) - you need to click the 'browse' button to search for this deal

I always recommend in workshops on visual content marketing that as far as possible it is best to create your own gallery of images and photographs to use for your visual marketing and social media.

I know there are many great free sites available but some are over used, and you don't want your next presentation to have images that people recognise from their own blog posts do you?!

If you are a small business on a limited budget the investment for paid images can also become expensive if you post regularly to social meida platforms.

So I could not resist investing in this offer for a lifetime deal for only US$49.

I don't expect to use their images every day, but it's good to know that the next time my own photo gallery lets me down I have a resource with over 600,000 items in it!

I thought it was too good a deal not to pass it on!

One thing to note: check the details of the licence on StockUnlimited or any other stock photo site you use if you want to create products such as t-shirts etc as that is probably not permitted as it would be considered re-selling of the graphics.

I only read Twitter via Hootsuite on mobile, so never see messages there. Way too much spam to sort through. Best to contact me via my site

How to recover access to your YouTube Google account if you don't know the email username

If your YouTube channel is connected to a Google account, then watch this video to learn how to navigate the Google account recovery process.

Your YouTube channel must be connected to a Google account if one of the following is true:

• you created the channel after May 6 , 2009

• you signed in to YouTube after January 11, 2011

A few tips for figuring out your Google account email username:

• it can be any sort of email, so it's not necessarily a Gmail email, except ...

• except if your account was created between January and autumn 2012 - during that period Google required you make a new Gmail email for the account

• try leaving a comment on one of your channel's videos or subscribe to the channel. The notification should be sent to the email you need to use to sign in.

• if you have a Blogger blog on the same Google account, that you also cannot access, try the Blogger Forgot your username or password? form to get an email and a hint at the email address:

• If you cannot figure it out try the Google account "don't know my username" recovery process at

Watch +The Lady from UNCLE​'s video to see how to navigate the Google account recovery process:

What if the YouTube channel is not connected to a Google account?

If it is a legacy YouTube account then you need to use the and watch this video: to help you.

Turn your blog posts into beautifully designed ebooks and lead magnets in minutes with this brilliant low cost software (sponsored post) - get the details here just US$25 for lifetime access to this ebook design software

A few years ago when delivering a workshop in Northern Ireland I was a approached by a young developer who had the idea of creating an online tool for visual marketing who asked me some questions about how to market his startup.

Little did I know what that tool would end up becoming!

It's software that has ready made designs to help you take your blog posts or written content and transform them into beautifully designed ebooks.

The product is called Beacon and you can create web ebooks or PDF ebooks changing the layout, font and customising the design with your own graphics.

You could always use images and graphics from Stock Unlimited which I mentioned here re their great offer which I also invested in today

It comes with a WordPress plugin which means that in minutes you can reformat your article as an ebook (I had difficulty getting it to work today but thanks to a responsive customer service team member they hope to have that resolved tomorrow for me - it's a tech issue to do with the server setup with my site that means they are looking at the plugin to update it).

I had always meant to do this with my key articles, but I never had the time. Now I have no excuses!

You can also take a written article and format it into an ebook - such as the transcription of a podcast or video.

The investment is meant to be US$29 a month - but with this deal it is US$25 for lifetime access. How could I let that deal slip through my hands?!

How do you turn your blog posts into ebooks and lead magnets?

NEW product to add countdown timers, videos and animated gifs to your email campaigns

I'd been exploring how to add countdown timers to blog posts and email campaigns so was delighted to see this new product launch this week

Find it at (sponsored)

I invested just US$47 for a one time fee as part of it's launch.

Not only can you add countdown timers to your ezines but it enables you add videos, create slide presentations and create animated gifs from videos to make your email marketing more visually engaging.

I rarely post multiple times a day, but this product is so good and as the price more than doubles after today, I thought I should post about it.

 Good point on messaging - it's a great product  though if you need those features - I'd been researching countdown timers for some time and I like the fact I can embed them on my site not just in emails as you might think from the product page.

Hope you are well..

Twitter updates the layout of photos on

In this article I share some insights for marketers about the new layout for photos on

Note this is not optimised for mobile. I am guessing that this will change especially as 80 percent of users in the UK and the US use Twitter on mobile devices.

What if any changes will you make to your Twitter marketing as a result of this update?

Visual content helps to engage your audience on Twitter. There are considerations marketers need to take into account for their content marketing plans.
