JetPack Sharing

Let’s see how this goes. I’ve used ITTT for sharing, let’s see how JetPack does it.

This post should show up on Fb, Tw, and Google+ – have a look.

Is “Free” Really Worth It?

Screenshot_DNP_on_SmartPhoneThis weekend, I’m going to craft an email message to send to my desert networking professionals. With that message, I am going to offer some of my time, “for free” – not that I have free time…. What I would like to do is interview anyone who is interested and write an article that I will post on my blog. This article (if I do it right) will have plenty of opportunities for links back to the affected business website.

I’m not clear on the benefit to me for providing this service, but I’m hoping to understand that at some point. Clearly, the original goal here is to see if anyone will actually accept this offer of free service. Perhaps something that is offered at no cost is also perceived to be of no value.

I’ll keep you posted on the results of this experiment. You will, of course, have to come back to my blog, my Facebook page, or follow me on Twitter, or any of the other places I’ll post about this, to keep up with progress. Maybe that is one of the few benefits I will receive by doing this here.

Five Minutes of Writing for DNP

DNP brochure cover

I’ve started the stopwatch and will stop typing at five minutes, so I can add a couple of images to this post. Then, I’ll use HootSuite to push this post out to two Facebook pages, Twitter and Google+, along with another WordPress site I maintain for reasons I’ll explain to the group.

The point of this exercise is to dispel the notion that Social Media takes “too much time!” Sure, you can spend hours scrolling through every post on Facebook, or perusing every Tweet on Twitter. That is up to you, however, as to how you behave as a consumer of Social Media offerings. What is important here is to show that in less than ten minutes, I can produce one post and have it show up in five more places on the web.

What do you think that does for visibility and SEO? OK, my stopwatch is at 4:54 now….

Time’s up! Pencils down.

So, now that I’ve pasted the text and added an image, we are at eight minutes….
From here, we go out to HootSuite to select the SM networks and ship it!

OK, it took about 15 minutes to go from typing the title of this post, to the finished product being posted via HootSuite.
Images added after the fact:

Embed a Facebook Post

Let’s say that you’ve just posted something on Facebook and you want to preserve it for posterity on another website or blog. Here’s what I’m doing here.

After I posted something on my profile page (a.k.a., my personal Facebook page), I shared it, with a couple of complementary links, on my Facebook fan page (a.k.a., my business Facebook page), so my fans could see what I’ve been up to on a Saturday afternoon. Are you with me so far?

Then, on my Facebook fan page, I click the little drop-down menu arrow at the top right of the post. click embed postFrom that menu, I click Embed Post. (You may have to choose “More Options,” to get to “Embed Post.”) Facebook shows the code you need to copy, which links to your post from a web page, Tweet, or wherever it was you were going with this.

Now that I have the code, all I have to do to put it on this copy this textpage, is paste it into a frame and we should be good to go!
