Goodbye, and thanks for all the fish.

While I made a decision to focus my time and energy on other platforms long ago, the news that Google+ is officially, finally ended is still sad.

Fortunately, it's easy to connect on other platforms.

I'm Not Dead Yet!

There's been a lot of buzz and hype lately about long form content - is it dead? Does anyone really watch long videos?

Do you?

When was the last time you watched a video longer than 10 minutes, or read a blog post longer than 500 words?

Do you think Long Form Content is DEAD? ☠️ I'd love to hear what you think in the comments below. (You'll find my opinion in today's blog post, if you're interested.) 😉

It's shocking that this is still an issue, and it's incalculable what impact it's having.

Fortunately there are people working to raise awareness, like Kathy Klotz-Guest, Jay Acunzo, Mia Voss, Jennifer Ast, Jenn Herman, Amanda Robinson, Kelly Noble Mirabella, Bella Vasta and Jessika Phillips.

I make no apologies for the clickbaity headline - this is something you must read about.

How Do You Keep Up With Social Media?

“14 million accounts compromised.”
“Organic reach is declining.”
“Your news feed is changing again."

Every day, developments and updates are being announced for the various social networks. Algorithms, news feeds, video capability... how we use social networks and reach potential customers is constantly in flux.

As a social media professional, I enjoy checking out these crazy, convoluted changes. But as a business owner, it can be frustrating!

Just when you think you’ve figured out how to reach your potential customers on Facebook, Facebook changes something and it feels like you’re back to Square 1.

Should you use Live video or Recorded video, and what the heck is a Premiere Video?

Should you use 3 or 30 hashtags on Facebook or Instagram?

Should you post 3 times a day or just 3 times a week?

The reason there are no definitive answers to many of those questions and more, is that these things are constantly evolving. What “worked” last year for Instagram may not work, or work as well, today. Which means the time and money you invested before may no longer help you right now.

You need a resource that can help you stay updated and on track day after day. You need a way to keep up with social media without having to invest too much of your own time and money.

What you need is a group of social media professionals at your beck and call, folks who are already paying attention to everything that’s happening and will be giving you the 411.

What if you could have 4 expert consultants, covering all of the different areas and networks, who would let you know when something’s changed or happened that might impact you?

What if you could ask those experts questions whenever you needed help, and get insightful answers and personalized direction?

What if you could attend live video broadcasts to get exclusive training, and more opportunities to get your questions and concerns addressed?

And imagine… just imagine… if you could get ALL OF THAT for just FIVE BUCKS A MONTH.

That’s 360 Marketing Squad.

Jenn Herman, Stephanie Liu, Amanda Robinson, and myself, Mike Allton, are waiting to help you! Your private, exclusive Facebook Group awaits.
