I'm a big fan of Mixergy and have heard of Lewis Howes. What really has me thinking is if webinars are something that I could really use to help build my business... or at least power one or two of my side-projects.

Any of you tried using webinars in your business?

Here's my most recent "How I Got Started" interview for my Becoming a Business Owner site (coming soon... so right now track it on Facebook at http://facebook.com/becomingabusinessowner)

The interviewee was Shelia Butler of Me Giant, Inc. (http://megiant.com - cool kids apparel and home decor), but ALSO was previously a co-owner of a multi-million dollar business - Aidan Gray Homes, Inc. - before selling her share and moving on to this new business!

She had some great advice on getting started, working with a business partner, and how to build a retail/wholesale business with physical products! (Her experience is in furniture, home decor, and apparel)

Ever needed your Facebook ID number?

I've started to test more and more of Facebook's social plugins as well as some tools that integrate with Facebook and they routinely ask for your admin ID, page ID, or app ID. Well, I needed to find a better way to get this and came across the Social Graph feed that gives you this, so I just mocked up a video tutorial about how to use it to get this information.

I completely think that Quantcast is vastly underrated by many and I've only recently started to use it on one of my own websites, but I'm wondering...

Have any of you used it and if so, what was your experience?

Great article that makes you think how you refer to and treat your... customers? Supporters? Partners? Members? Hmm...

Anyone in my circles have a Youtube channel? Have you tried using their video editor or used their video analytic tool? What's been your experience with those tools?

This was a lot of fun and Shelia was a business owner who connected to our Facebook page. It's amazing what you can happen when you create the "community" and people come around to take part in it!

I received this in the mail today from Quantcast, thanking me for creating a video tutorial about how to install their software into websites. Very cool to see a company that: 1) is actually monitoring and listening to people talking about their brand, and 2) actually thanking them for doing so! That's how you build a relationship! I didn't expect anything, but boy am I "wow'd" by this bottle of bubbly!

That's a great story. Good recognition on their part - well done!

I'm testing the use of these in one or two of my websites. The one I'm really interested in is using Facebook comments in place of my normal blog comments tool. Anyone of you ever tried that?

Yeah, that's sort of what I'm fearing, but I still wanted to test it since it has a strong ability to share/spread the content within its network (not that others don't.) Also... it's easier to track with Insights analytics from my website into Facebook.

I see you're using Disqus comment system (which was always my "go to" before,) have you seen people posting with the social media accounts or just using the standard Disqus comment post?
