Hangouts On Air are powerful tools for building your brand. +Bruce Clay, Inc. Internet Marketing does a great job showing you how to make the most out of it.

Things that are covered in this article:

Why be on Google+

This is vital information with great quotes by +Vic Gundotra  and +Danny Sullivan  

I often tell my clients that thinking of Google+ as another Social Media site is missing the key element of what G+ is all about. This is an SEO tool that uses Social Signals instead of links to determine credibility. I agree with Danny "*...if you are not on here you are dumb."*

How to Start a Hangout On AIr

+Paula Allen  gives some great advice on how to start a Hangout on air. I have covered these tips many times before but this is a clear view of how to get your first HOA up and going.

Extending the Value of the HOA

I am working on an article about this very subject. The article is going to part of my upcoming book "HOA Business Branding: Hangout On Air NOT Your Homeowners Association" coauthored with +Jenn Foster. There are so many ways you can repurpose your HOA content to make your brand stronger. Take the time to first capture your thoughts via HOA, then create your content via HOA and finally reuse and repurpose your HOA content.

Thanks Paul. Keep up the great work

About Stan:
Tagline
Everything I know I learned by doing.
Introduction
I've been gainfully unemployed since 1984. I officially entered the IT business in the early 90's. Before that I owned retail gift shops, ran a chain of shoe stores, managed a radio station, and was GM of several large businesses.  

Generally I post specific articles to pages, circles, and communities that I manage, or are a part of. I don't hate cats, nor the people who love them. But I very rarely follow, share, or comment on pictures of them. 

If I have to share your post to prove I love Jesus, America, mom, dad, sister, brother, wife, daughter, or that I'm reading your posts you may be disappointed with me. I simply don't do a lot of that. 

I'm interested in helping people build sustainable communities.  Non device, operating system, or application dependent homes on the web. Safe havens. 

I've worked 70 hour weeks for 19 years on IT related projects. I probably know some stuff you might find useful.  But mostly I want to know about you.

I read the profiles of everyone I follow. 

If you invite me to a group about any subject, and the only thing I see are posts about things you're trying to sell.  I probably won't join. I wish you all the luck in the world, but it's not for me. 

If you invite me to a group where I can't read anything, I probably won't join that either. 

Just because you can Google expert, doesn't mean you are one.

If you're Google apps, profile, page, local, webmaster, blogger, sites, drive, gmail, wallet, keep, tasks, or analytics don't work...and you're IT guy says it's because of something Google has done, or that it can't be fixed....then you should talk to me. I can fix it. 

Just because you have a Marketing Degree doesn't mean you understand sales. 

If you have a retail store and your social media advisor is telling you that online is the only way to survive, you need to talk to me. They don't know the difference between order taking and sales. They don't understand customer service versus lip service.  Your retail store has distinct advantages over online stores only.  I can help you discover them. 

I fix broken things. Networks, relationships, or business plans included. 
When everything's on fire, I'm the guy to hire. 

If you came to the show and commented in the events page, you will be put in a notification circle to be invited to future shows.

Do you have trouble calling yourself an expert?
If you're in business, showing expertise is an essential part of building authority, reputation and ultimately trust - all important factors on being found on the web.

This is a conversation that goes around and around in social media. While it's widely accepted that referring to oneself as a "guru" is pretentious, being an expert is a brand necessity.

After all, who will purchase a product or service from someone who isn't clear about their expertise.

Many are reticent to call themselves experts either because they they lack personal confidence, don't own a "niche" or, if they're in social media, believe no one can be an expert due to ever-changing technology.

Join us and add your questions and comments to those of the #RayLunchBunch  as we explore the challenges of defining your expertise and niche online.

Be sure to stick around for the last 5 minutes of the show when we'll be serving our Lunch Bunch Take-Out - tips and links to resources relating to the day's topic.

Template 2015 PPC eCommerce Monthly Marketing Recap
A Simple Sheet to help analyze your monthly traffic paid and organic

Click to Open Google Sheets
http://goo.gl/DFfczj

Once you are ready to insert the data, you will need to just click once in the field you want to change and look up to the top left of your screen for an area called Fx then add the data within that section rinse and repeat :)

This way you don't accidentally change the variable for the calculations in Column D & E    

You will see the month tab below and you can just duplicate and change the name so you can go back in your data to find areas of important or decline. 

If you want to add more rows to collect I would recommend just clicking on the calculation field and copy and past, then choose if it will be a percentage or other.

I am really excited to hear what others think about this report... 

Enjoy the Spreadsheet :) Oh and Have Fun, #LEARN and be a #ROCKSTAR in your Business ... 

:) More KOOL Toys to Come Soon

Google Adwords  - 
 
 
'Call Only' Ad Types Come to AdWords

Google AdWords now allows advertisers to use 'Call Only' ads for mobile. Whereas traditionally a call button for mobile Search ads has been a feature of AdWords ads, allowing users to skip clicking through to your site and go straight to calling your business, 'Call Only' ads only lets Searchers click-to-call your business.

This new feature is likely to be especially useful for many local businesses and for businesses known primarily by a phone number. Some businesses convert almost entirely by phone still, and until now they've had no choice but to build a landing page on their website for Search ads.

Will you be using 'Call Only' ads with your business or clients?

#AdWords #AdWordsUpdates #SEM
A new ad type will give mobile-centric marketers the ability to set up phone call conversion only campaigns.

This is one of the best paintball fields in the Kansas City Area.. I take my son down to play once every few months but when we go I have to say everyone who works their are extremely helpful and very educated on the sport. However I think one of the things that this paintball field excels in is SAFTEY they have some of the BEST Refs on the field, making sure everyone is having fun and doing it in a safe mannor. If you are a new player or experienced each one of their fields are unique. Two of our favorite fields are the Woodsball/Speedball style field as well the Castle is my favorite of them all, as they have developed many cool games to play with that field. They have portable bathrooms and are well kept up as well they have snacks but we like bringing the cooler and as we sit back and relax we cook up some Hot Dogs and such.. The other cool thing these guys do are Birthday Party Events and they really cater to the party as you have your own ref/guide for the day.. If you have not played at this field and you are in the Kansas City or Lawrence Area you need to stop by and play.
