How do you manage your social media?

Do you have a plan you follow? A strategy? Or are you (like me) posting anything you find interesting, and surfing with no real purpose...?

If you want to build a brand and a presence, you do need a plan. It's a must.

And if you hate systems and rules, you really want to read this article from my friend +Natasha Vorompiova who shows you how more constraints actually lead to more creativity.

Don't believe her (or me? cause I read it and I'm totally going to use this as my own plan)..

Read this great blog post where she gives you the 7 social media rules you must obey.

My son's water adventures with his tiger mom :D

BTW,
If you're considering going to Rock’N River Water Park (http://bit.ly/2acxOXc) here's some advice -

Shade - there is none. Unless you pay for it in advance and all the cabanas and umbrellas are booked 3 weeks out. Lame.

Crowd - WAY to many people. To a point that you can't even swim in the pool. So many people just leave you room to stand.

Cost - relatively cheap. But, you get what you paid for (no shade, no room. No fun)

Technology has always been about efficiency. No matter how powerful our processors get, reducing the size of the file will help in quicker speeds, whether it's loading a video on the Internet or transferring a bunch of files.

Edward Snowden Designed a Spy-Proof iPhone Case.

Snowden teamed up with the hacker Andrew “bunnie” Huang to design the device, a piece of hardware that would affix to an iPhone and that would alert a person whenever that handset leaked location data. 


He teamed up with another hacker on the plan.

useful - highly specialised comparison engine? Like a mannual nextag with a lot more "people" work and less automation. I love the concept though. I would find this useful if I lived in the states!

I answer the questions that Google won't.
Introduction

We are constantly connected now, but are we Present?

Hey there stranger, let's make this the beginning of a beautiful friendship, shall we? ღღღ


Hi, I'm Yifat - Your G+GoTo Gal, and I am passionate about the possibilities Google plus brings to our lives and to our business. You can find me discussing Google+ strategies, Google+ marketing, engagement and relationship building on my weekly hangout show - Unscripted!


But what rocks my boat, what really gets me going, is the relationships I’ve found here - on Google+. I have met amazing people who become a new family to me and with whom I now spend much of my time. These relationships and what they brought with them, are the reason I am so passionate about Google+ and I can not wait for you to experience this level of engagement, this sense of community and this depth of conversation and ideas. They will change your life for the better. Trust me on that.


I walk my talk

I am now making a living coaching, engaging and speaking about the topic I am most passionate about - Google plus and Google plus hangouts, and I can show you how to do the same: How to turn your passion into real income. Wouldn’t it be great if you could make a living from something you are completely passionate about as I am about Google+ coaching and hangout hosting and moderating?


Let me show you how to:



UNSCRIPTED! HANGOUTS
I host a weekly hangout onAir show, Every Thursday at 11am CST, called Unscripted Hangouts (and you might be able to be a guest on one of them). 
Unscripted Hangouts put my audience face to face with high profile experts where they learn of my guests, what they do, and are able to engage in a free, unscripted conversation with them.

Topics range from SEO, Google ranking factors, Story selling, YouTube marketing, to more entrepreneurial interviews with the likes of TJ Marchatti Senior Vice President, Digital Marketing at The Walt Disney Studios.

----- ★ღ ----- Ah, but you want to know more about me...? ----- ★ღ -- 

I’m a lover. I love life. I love my amazing husband and my incredibly cute son. I love to laugh, eat, try new things, experiment, travel (oh boy, do I love to travel). I love to push my own limits. I love to argue. I love movies and learning new things. I love compliments. I love to play. I love to read. I love to be right. I love to be loved and I really love to love. 

My Myers Briggs is ENTP (Extravert, iNtuitive, Thinking, Perceiving ), so before you're shocked by my perverse sense of humor or if you want to understand why I enjoy playing devil's advocate, read this.

Google+ marketing is the 2nd love of my life (family comes in #1). I spend most of my time playing with it and showing others how to succeed in it. I love talking about it, figuring out how it works and then how to break it, discussing it with other people and finding solutions to common problems. I own a social media marketing company, Motech Marketing and I love helping people accomplish their online goals easily and quickly. 

I really love what I do. I work from home, with people that are fun to be around and a pleasure to collaborate with. I always meet new people that I can service and I just love helping them realize how easy it is to increase their online visibility and profits.

I love this place. The best pizza I've ever had in Austin.

You have to buy shade. That's right. If you didn't secure a cabana or an umbrella 3 weeks in advance - enjoy getting burn. The place is packed! So much so that there's no place to swim. You're just standing there in the water cause you can't move with all the people. I was there one time too many and never coming back.
