When building any your audience or brand you need to be where you customers are if you want to reach them, but limiting yourself to just one network imposes unnecessary limits on your growth.

I addressed this very topic on Cranky Gamers​ with +Steven Hodson a couple of weeks ago. We were discussing how Twitch streamers can use social media to  grow their streams when the following question that was thrown out in the chatroom:

"Facebook is useless to Twitch streamers except for a central page to go for a schedule. Twitch is it’s own social network."

While the advice given is targeted at Twitch streamers, it holds true for anybody trying to build an audience or brand of any kind.

Here’s a look at how Facebook is asserting its dominance in livestreaming, how other players are countering – and what this means for brands and marketers.

I've been using plugins to optimize my WordPress database for years, but nothing has done the job as well as WP-Sweep. It reduced my database overhead from 98.6 MB to 12.9.

#WordPress #Blogging

http://paulof.com/2adT5BU
Over the years my WordPress database had become bloated - very bloated. Despite using WP-Optimize to keep the database in check, 12 years of content, many host migrations and export/import cycles had caused my database to balloon to a massive 98.6 MB in size. Needless to say, this caused more than a few issues when I recently migrated my site to dedicated WordPress hosting and importing the database was a nightmare. Enter WP-Sweep. Developed by W...

The future of content marketing (and social in general) and these Facebook page layout tests prove that you're going to have to get onboard in a big way.

http://paulof.com/2a33hYX

#facebook #socialmedia #contentmarketing
Facebook has made a huge investment in their video platform and yesterday I noticed some tests to the layout of pages which would indicate that Facebook expects publishers and businesses to get onboard in a big way (which you really should be, BTW). By making the video and photos sections of pages front and center on the desktop version, which mimics the mobile layout, users are now forced to scroll past your videos and photos before they can see...

It's funny, no scratch that - It's sad how somethings never change. 6 years since I wrote this post and we're still afraid of the social mob.

#socialmedia #society #haters

http://paulof.com/urzV9E
30 years ago people complained about mainstream medias (it was the only stream then) coverage of the news and having too much control and influence. Today, thanks to the empowerment of the internet, we live in a world where decisions are based on the outrage expressed by a handful of people who suffer from a combination of too much free time and a distinct shortage of functional brain matter. You know of people I'm talking about: The dipshits tha...

A five-year-old post that still holds true today. So many bloggers and marketers miss the basics with their own sites, and not having a contact form must be the biggest faux pas of them all.

Not only do you miss out on potential opportunities, but you're denying your community a path to engagement.

#blogging #contentmarketing #bloggers

http://paulof.com/2a9aaK6
I've said it before, and I’ll damn well say it again – “If you don’t have a contact form on your blog or site, you’re not worth my time following”. Having spent a large part of this morning building a contact list of local bloggers for outreach, I’m shocked by how many don’t have even the simplest of contact mechanisms listed on their site. I’m not even talking about putting your email address out there – how about a simple form so that I can rea...
