+Post Ads Now for Pages With More Than 1000 Followers

Wow, I had almost forgot about these! Can't wait to see how well they work.

H/T +Mark Traphagen
 
Last December, we introduced +Post ads to a limited number of AdWords advertisers as a way to amplify their content to new audiences. Starting today, we’re making +Post ads available to all advertisers with at least 1000 Google+ followers: goo.gl/6gNlsx.

See how brands such as +Audi USA  and +Topman  are using +Post ads to drive more participation with their brand’s content across the web.

Time to rally for a good cause.!
 
I need a HUGE favor from everyone... especially those of you that are fellow science lovers....... .explanation down below.

TLDR: 
Report these 3 pages for impersonation. Choose the "other business or organization" option. They need to come down asap. Thank you.

3.  https://plus.google.com/103094660304301458017/posts

This ^^^ third one even managed to get itself verified through some bogus process. It's the most popular of the 3. PLEASE Report them all and share this post with your circles to help get them taken down
_________________________________________________________

Explanation ...... 

+Elise Andrew the founder of Facebook's famous "I fucking love science" page has been trying to get her REAL G++I fucking love science page verified for over a year now. She has requested verification many times and has even reported the other pages as impersonation with no response from Google. She has even sent them her company's name registration papers as well as the copyright papers to the name and they still won't get back to her. She's extremely frustrated and that's been holding her back from fully committing to engaging more here... which sucks, because we have been trying to get her active here for over a year now.... and MANY of us would love to see her engaging more. So if you could all please report these pages I know she and the rest of us would highly appreciate it.

Thank you.

Always have a plan!
 
How To Create A Social Media Plan.

1. The first order of business in developing any social media strategy is to understand how to listen and collect useful market artifacts. 

2. The ability to curate important industry information as a way to inform clients and internal stakeholders.

3. Finally, with many of the tools and routines above in place we could turn to the most obvious reason to participate in social media – to engage customers and prospects.

Are you going to be a guest on a HOA?

Great article with tips to get setup and be a great guest!
 
Hangout on Air pre-pre-show preparations...
As a guest of someone's HOA (Hangout on Air), if you are tech savvy enough, you'll want to help out by loading up and testing certain links and functions to see if  'all systems are go' for the show to come.

In this screenshot you can see the text doc I created to hold a few links for the various HOAs in which I'll be a filmstrip guest today. One link I test is the "Public Reshare of the Event Post" which is used for ver. 1 of the Comment Tracker hangout app. It allows us to track comments and bring them visually on screen during the live show, even if they come from the Event itself. I prefer this to Google's Q&A app for I feel it is "More Social".

Another check I do is for the Microphone, Camera, Lights and Lower Third... all before ever being invited by the HOA Host into the HOA greenroom (the pre-show time when we are almost ready to go live).

For those able to see it, the doc I've got ready here also has a place for an Emergency Recovery link for the HOA. This is where I put the URL to the HOA that will be the live broadcast. It is only used by filmstrip guests for quick re-entry into the live HOA if they happen to loose connection to the show while it is in process. You'll notice it is blank at this time since I am in not yet invited into the HOA greenroom but am performing the pre-pre-show checks on my own.

Sometimes we take these things for granted if we've done these things for a while, but I think it is good to be reminded of some of the things you can do to get ready to go... IMO, when you have all these things verified, then the rush of activity that happens in the pre-show greenroom can be less stressful allowing for a more successful broadcast.

What do you do to get ready emotionally and technically for your HOAs... no matter if you are a Filmstrip Guest or the HOA Host?

As a reminder, here is a link to a recent HOA show where we discussed being a Great HOA Guest: http://goo.gl/BQ83uc

The Big Problem with Small-Business Websites
As a web designer, for the past 15 years, it pains me to see small businesses struggle with their online presence.

It's one of the reasons I started inlineVision instead of going to work for another large corporation.

If you or someone you know has issues with their website, review my work and let's talk.
