What not to do to get your brand/event noticed.

This is a big pet peeve of mine and I see it again and again. Have you ever been in a discussion online and all of a sudden someone posts a link to their blog with totally unrelated content? 

These people think they are oh so savvy by finding where their target audience is hanging out. They don't care what you all are talking about, but they know you are there. They simply post a link to their website/event/blog and may even say a few words with it.  The funny thing is they actually think they are smart and are so arrogant that they think you will like it.  Would you burst into a room full of people discussing say leadership and scream "I sell ______, read my article it's great and call me". Do they really think people would enjoy this interruption and stop everything to click or read their annoying post?

Please stop if you are doing this or help me understand what mindset they may have to think this is a wise move? Comment below with your pet peeve on social media or online marketing?

Google Reviews from a Mobile device

We just posted a blog (and video) on how to support your favorite businesses with a google+ review. What we left out was how to make a review from your mobile device.  It works TOTALLY different from your mobile device. (but, good news - it's easy)

  1. Open Google Maps. (make sure you are signed in.  If you have used maps or gmail then you are probably already signed in.)
  2. Search for the business you want to review. (check that it's the correct address. We've noticed some businesses have multiple map listings if they've moved.
  3. Scroll down and you will see the 5 stars and a place to add comments.
  4. 'Publish' and you are done.

It's simple. Though confusing that you can't do this from the Google+ app.  Either way...it's easy to support your favorite businesses from your mobile device too.  It will come from your personal account, unless you are signed in as your business.  

Here's the link for posting reviews from your desktop

Here's a link to set up a Google+ account business or personal.
