🎶 BACK TO BACK HANGOUT CONCERTS!! 🎶 
Hey G+niuses! Big news!! We're kicking off a new series of Hangout Concerts with back-to-back weekend shows starting this Saturday!!! I can't wait to see you and sing with you! Let the global party begin!!

This double-feature awesomeness is happening on the next two Saturdays, April 11th and April 18th! 

There's still no thrill greater for me than seeing your faces and your sunsets through my laptop screen... Hearing your stories and sharing your dreams... Laughing with you and making new music memories! 

XO, Daria

Ps. With two shows we should be able to double the number of you that get into the Hangout too! So start planning and commenting so I can circle you up and reserve your spots in the video! Event pages you can RSVP to are coming in the morning too!

Pps. +Moritz Tolxdorff +Dolidh Young It's time for the Hangout Renaissance! When I say "hang", you say "out!" "Hang!" "Out!" Woo!

Calling All Misfits!
I'm looking for the weirdo's, the unconventional marketers, the Freaks as +Chris Brogan puts it.  

You have a particular type of marketing strategy that no one understands.  You don't fit in with any certain crowd, and, as a matter of fact, you weren't meant to fit in with the crowd.  

You are your own person.  A legend in your own mind, silently winning the battle of attention online like +Ryan Hanley talks about.  No one notices, because no one cares.  They laugh at your techniques and snicker at your attempts at success.

Are you shooting too high?  No way.  It's never too high.  But when someone else sees you coming and they know that the way you're doing it isn't the way they got there so they feel that you're doing it wrong.

Misfits Unite!

Be proud of the way you do your marketing, your writing, your relational attempts, your engaging, etc.  There will always be those people that are ready and waiting to put you down.  You will never be in their group or their list, and they will probably never pick you.

Here's how you pick yourself, and end up getting the respect you deserve.

My Fellow Misfits

I want to take special mention of these fellow misfits in the marketing industry:
+Thomas E. Hanna | BlogPhoto.tv 
+Carrie-Anne Foster 
+Nicky Pasquier 
+Carolyn Capern 
+Robert Ryan 
+Anna Godfrey 
+Alisa Meredith 
+Jason Mathes 
+Gina Fiedel 
+Ian Anderson Gray 
+Andrea Beltrami 

Honorable Mention of Misfit I Respect
+Andy Nathan +Kristin Drysdale +Neil Ferree +John Chvatal +Luis Galarza +Shannon Hernandez 

Get in the Circle!
If you would like to be in my notification circle here on Google+, let me know in the comments and you will be notified, both here on G+ and in your email every time I publish a post.  Usually once a week.

#marketingtips   #socialmediatips   #misfitsunite  
Are you a marketing misfit? Perhaps in social media, or maybe content marketing? Here's why it's ok to be different and a little weird.

🌸 SPRING + SING 🌸
Woh! It's the First Day of Spring, a solar eclipse, a supermoon and The International Day Of Happiness! That's a quad-awesome situation! We're little seeds ready to bloom together, so here's a hint of a my new song "Bloom"... 

EXPLORE THE SONG
This is the little "just getting started" demo track that closes out my special interactive sneak peek into my creative process that I shared last week! If you missed it go exploring inside my little songwriter brain with this dynamic crazycool project with this new thing called Sway: https://sway.com/nLa7rrYhdCmzRyQd  

READ MY GUEST BLOG
In fact, "Bloom" caught the attention of Microsoft (who build Sway) and they asked me to write a guest blog post for them about it! You can read it here: http://bit.ly/1x1mK6f and I'll share some excerpts from it later tonight!

XO, Daria
 
Ps. Today also marks the first day that I'm back in action! I'm aliiiiive! Did you notice the radio silence? I've been a sneeze-monster stuck in bed for the entire week! It was the meanest, stubborn-est cold-fever-thing ever. Ugh. So happy to rejoin the land of the living! Woohoo!!!

Tweets in Google Search

They're are coming back in a big way

#twittermarketing  
#googlesearch  
#googlesearchtips  
Early last month a deal was made to bring back Twitter Google search. Google will now have access to the Twitter “firehose” which will result in more tweets being found in Google search.These two had an agreement between 2009 and 2011 where Google had similar access. This deal should be good for both companies, but it should really benefit Twitter by bringing in non-users to the platform, and converting them to new users. Twitter Google SearchIf ...

Google Plus Content Exposure Power!
#throwbackthursdays  

This is an old post that still can be very useful for all marketers and content creators here on G+.

Enjoy!

How To Write In-Dept Articles or Post And Use Google Plus Content Marketing Power!
Day 30th - For The 31 Days G+ Engagement Challenge!

Many people heard that article marketing isn't working as well as before, and many of those content directories were slap by Google new search rules and algorithm, well only those that use to accept all type of content and never checked it if writer were submitting original content.

NOTE: Article marketing still works when is use carefully and correctly. But, from now and on you should be focusing on social article marketing more and strategic guest blogging.

Many business owners, entrepreneurs and content writers forget that you can use Google Plus as the Powerful Social Article Or Content System it is, and you should start writing content exclusive for Google+, not small posts, instead write in-dept articles that can be the front exposure element to a relevant post on your site or blog and marketing boosting tool for your business and personal brand.

Let me repeat that one more time: "Write in-dept articles that can be the front exposure element to a relevant post on your site or blog and marketing boosting tool for your business and personal brand."


How This Is Done!

The process is very simple. Craft a content campaign map, a basic CCM can be:

Step-By-Step Blog Post + G+ Promotional But Useful Post = Brand Exposure, Website Traffic, Leads, and  Sales.

Or

Video or Hangout On Air Event + G+ Promotional But Useful Post = Brand Exposure, Website Traffic, Leads, and  Sales.

But, this can also be done if you want to share useful tips, story, or information without promoting any outside resources. By helping other will still help your authority, brand, and exposure.

Your article doesn't need to be too long, but:

1. It needs to be long enough to get more Google and audience love.
2. It needs to be useful enough to become share-able and possibly go viral.
3. It needs to be relevant to the content of the blog post or video you are promoting.
4. It needs to help identify your target audience problem.
5. It needs to have a clear call to action, which in this case is to visit and read main post or watch your video or RSVP for your Hangout On Air event, or simply watch the HOA replay.


*****

PRO TIP: Provide as many examples that showcase the problem the are having and show them that they are not a long. Also, make sure to follow with a nice introduction or summary of your main content.

Here are some examples of great useful promotional articles shared here in G+:

UP PERISCOPE!
Hey G+niuses! Have you tried the new app  yet? It's so us. So live. So interactive. So fun. I think it's a great new little sister to our beloved #Hangouts ! Because it's so simple and fast, I've decided to try doing teeny tiny Periscope Pop-Up Concerts every... single... day!

I'm getting ready I just finished 'scoping my second ever show live from my bedroom (haha!) so if you'd like to join live watch the replay here's the link:

https://www.periscope.tv/w/Vvh1KTQ3ODYxfDY4NjI2NxPsyzcmHTfkfhmFUWzZAhwhBitV9jl7qxI0waJ6TmOZ

 It's just like Hangouts but with no viewer-video feed just tons of live comments and flourishes of hearts!

Periscope tweets a live link whenever you broadcast, so you can always see me go live here: www.twitter.com/dariamusk and I'll always try to multitask and come back to add the link in this post on G+ too!

'Scope you soon!

XO, Daria

Ps. Next Hangout Concert coming up fast too!! Details on the way!

Deep Look At The Social Sharing Power Of Google Plus!
Social Media Tips!

Excellent narrative that showcases the content exposure power that any business owner or marketer can get from the proper use of this lovely platform named Google+!

Why Google+ may deliver the best economic punch on the web! (NEW)
This is an awesome perspective on why Google+ is the place for many marketers...

Extract: "I recently wrote a book called The Content Code and for more than a year I dove deeply into the economic drivers of content and social media. Here’s a statistic that made me pause -- 83 percent of CMOs claim that SOCIAL SHARING is the primary benefit of social media marketing..."

Thank you so much +Mark Schaefer for putting this together, and guest blogging on PYB.
Perfectly timed ready for the #SMMW15  show too!

#GoogleforBusiness   #SocialSharing  
Have you considered 'social sharing' as the most important aspect of Social Media Marketing? If so, 83% of CMOs agree, and Google+ is built to share!

I have to admit that I never thought on using a detailing service for my car, but with many kids, and such a busy life as a business consultant, sometime can become almost impossible to keep my car and the family car clean. This is why I'm so happy that I call the guys at American Mobile Detailing.. they are really masters on what they do, they turn my dirty ride into a brand new automobile again. Yep, they were that good. Also Jaime and everyone there are very nice and friendly, I couldn't recommend anyone else. Two thumbs!

First you need to know that this is the only real full side Mexican restaurant in the area, which is excellent, the food is great, they serve a lot and the prices are fair, compare to others. Also don't forget to go on Sundays for a free mariachi show which is great for celebrations!
