Mastering Hangouts And Webinar Jam Pro Tip

If you are using third party tools with Google Hangouts such as WebinarJam for your marketing and educational events, it is important to test your set up.

Thanks to my awesome hangout buddy +Dave Webster we had the unique opportunity to experience the live event as if we were a member of the 'audience' today as Dave captured part of the event on video which we could then playback and review.

It is one thing watching the video as an HOA playback, but when you are using other tools that provide for additional interactions such as polls, calls to actions and public and private messaging this is an invaluable part of testing so that you can ensure that the experience is as good as you can possibly make it.

Of course you could and should also test out not just being the host, but also the experience of being a guest and being a member of the public - and I would encourage you to test from many view points.

Thanks also to today's hangout buddies the terrific +Sarah Santacroce and +DigiDesk.

How to quickly and easily create images for your visual content marketing

If you are using social media you will know how important visual content is for marketing success.

In this article I share a video and screen shots about how to:

- quickly create images for your Google Hangout event quote images

- create visual content for your Twitter updates

- create images so you can curate content to Pinterest where there is no pinnable image

- create visual content for your Facebook Pages and Profiles.

The tool I am referring to is Share As Image and I also share the special offer for lifetime access that expires today.

I use this tool every day and it certainly speeds up my content curation workflow.

What are your 'go to tools' for visual content creation?

+Kapil Jekishan Yes it certainly speeds up my visual content creation and curation - as I explain in the article it has some limitations but I find it great to have in my toolbox and use it all the time as well as +PicMonkey and +Canva which I really love

How to add in a 'slide in' call to action for your blog

If you are publishing articles on your business blog you will no doublt have been including a call to action.

I recommend testing the position of the call to action as people will not read to the end of the article and click on the link there.

You might have seen some calls to action slide in from the bottom right of a blog post - and example can been see on +HubSpot and if you are interested in learning how to do this you can read their article which takes you through the process.

This just might be something worth testing - though of course check what happens if people view your article on a mobile device.

What tools or tactics do you use on your blog to help you bring attention to your calls to action?

Word of mouth becomes world of mouth - Socialnomics 2014

>  Did you know that more people have a mobile phone than a toothbrush!

> And one in five couples met online but disturbingly one in five divorces involve social media.

> Apparently 20 percent of the terms typed into Google search each day have never been searched before.

> Every second there are two new people joining LinkedIn.

> Grandparents are the fastest growing demographic on Twitter.

> 53 percent of people on twitter recommedn products in their Tweets.

> 90 percent of consumers trust peer recommendations.

These are just a few of the data points he shares in the video.

Unfortunately there are no source links for the data in the video at the time of this article being posted.

Also no mention of Google Plus for those of us here - but there is a mention of wearable technologies.

All these stats are from the latest Socialnomics video from +Erik Qualman published 16 April 2014.

How to take your business global with digital marketing

Are you considering expanding your geographic reach for your business? There has never been a better time to 'go global'.

Many years ago when I started out on my international career, I was amazed that my then 'boss' could use our internal email system to connect to people in the organisation around the globe.

Roll forward some twenty plus years, now we can do that without even being connected to acomputer AND we can meet 'face to face'.

My friend and colleague +Sarah Santacroce hosts a weekly hangout answering questions from her followers, clients and community and this week she has invited me to discuss a question about using digital communications to take your business global.

If you can not join us live, there will be a replay.

My biggest challenge will be how we will be able to spend only 15 minutes on this topic which I am truly passionate about!

#digitalmarketing #internationalbusiness #HOA  
How to take your business global with Digital Marketing?

Live this Thursday, April 17th, 9.00 am EST, 3.00 pm CET

*Join my guest +Krishna De  and me  when we attempt to answer this question *

You can join us for the live call directly on Google+, either as a viewer or I'd love to have you join me as a participant.

What the 15 min Q&A Hangout is NOT

It's not the place to ask your questions on the spot (unless it's related to the question I'm answering that day). You can however send me a question now and with a bit of luck, I'll answer it during the next call. 

Ask to be added to my Q&A circle

If you'd like to get reminders for every event, just ask to be added to my Q&A circle and I will send you a notification before each event. 

And invite your friends !
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Sarah Santacroce. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

looking forward to it, +Krishna De ! thanks for the share.

A new addition to my Google Hangouts toolbox

If you read my article at the end of March when I shared 7 steps for getting started using Google Hangouts you will know one of the resources I mentioned was the soon to be released book Google Hangouts for Business by +David Amerland and with the assistance of +Ronnie Bincer as the technical editor.

While the official launch day is a few days time, the book is now available on Kindle - and remember you do not need a Kindle to read ebooks from Amazon - as you can see from my photo I read ebooks on my desk top and on my tablet and smartphone devices.

You can read my article with my 7 tips here

You can read some interesting business case studies here

By the way what you see in the photo is my second screen, my camera on a movable monopod, one of the lights I have in front of me, a clock I use to watch the time that has lapsed in the show and one of my mobile phones.

So I know what this weekends reading will be for me.

Do let me know if you decide to invest in the book - looking through the chapters it is a terrific introduction for people getting started thinking about using Google Hangouts in their business.

Eric Enge on becoming an authority

If you are building your visibility with prospects and potential customers one of the areas we need to work on is building your authority in your topic.

Through a number of tactics this can also help you then be identified as someone who has authority on that topic area.

I know this is something many people when starting their business are concerned about and the idea of being seen as an authority is something that they find it hard to adjust to - especially here in Ireland in my experience.

The fact of the matter is that people buy from people they trust and they see an an authority or expert.

This last week the topic of a hangout hosted by +Eric Enge who was joined by +David Amerland and +Mark Traphagen explored the topic of authority.

See the event here

Listening to the replay there was a quote that really struck me (around the 35:00 mark) from Eric - Solving problems for others is engagement that is memorable

This was something he covered in his SXSW event "How To Plan for Long Term SEO" - you can find the SlideShare here of his presentation

I think this very true and in fact that approach is at the heart of effective content marketing.

However in my experience, not everyone or every situation we are in when solving peoples problems results in creating memorable engagement that is perceived by the recipient as positive.

So I took the liberty of adapting Eric's quote (I hope he won't mind) to the following:

Solving problems for others can create engagement that is memorable.

That is something I strive to do in my work and my speaking and I hope that for the many times I achieve Eric's vision.

Thank you Eric for sharing your thoughts and perspectives on an important aspect of how to create engagement.

Plus My Reach - A new tool for measuring your Google plus post and event engagement

If you are looking to analyse the effectiveness of your Google Plus events then check out this new tool called +Plus My Reach from +David F Leopold and +Michael Mason - the video shares how the tool works and also lets you know how to get a free report.

Plus My Reach gives a snapshot at a point in time and can not provide historical data unfortunately at this time.

Note - this is a paid tool.

This looks as though it could be an interesting tool if you are hosting events on Google Plus including being able to identify some potential influencers that you can build relationships with.

Great to connect ;)
