Great post by +Lab3 Marketing! Boost the power of engagement your images pack by putting a little thought into them. Don't just spray bullets. Make them count! 
 
ALL IMAGES ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL: Nice post here by +Lab3 Marketing entitled How to Increase Social Media Engagement w/ Branded Images at http://bit.ly/1Jc0niS. Carlisle Stoup cites some really great examples to make her points. We thing "funny" works really well across the board with most brands. How about YOU!?

EVER FELT LIKE HER?: Don't blow off social media marketing because you can't find the time. Make the time by being smart about which social channels you use and what tools you use to help you make the time.

YOU DON'T FIND TIME. YOU MAKE IT: Nice post by Brett Relander for Entrepreneur​ entitled "How to Make Time for Social Media Marketing" at http://goo.gl/RYUAXy
BEST QUOTE: "Nielson reports that 33 percent of consumers prefer to contact companies over social media rather than the phone. If you are not investing in social media marketing, you are likely missing customers."

How much time are YOU making for social media for your business? Are you using social media management tools to make more time?

IS YOUR WEBSITE STILLMOBILE-'UN'FRIENDLY?: Your #SMB  could be taking it on the chin if it is. 
 
WHY YOU NEED A MOBILE-FRIENDLY WEBSITE NOW!: Nice post at +ReadWrite by +Gregory Ferenstein on paying attention to the man behind the curtain at Google. Big Takeaway: "...woe be to any site that ignores Google’s priorities. You could be de-ranked into obscurity." Find out why at http://goo.gl/hgDyva. Are you a victim of 'Mobilegeddon'?
