Tips Tricks and Resources for Building an Online Presence – Vol. 3

This 3rd in my series of collections of tips tricks and resources for building an online presence features items that were posted to my Facebook Fan Page in October 2010. Enjoy!

-

  1. Some ideas for adding a Contact Form to your Fan Page. I use response-o-matic which isn’t listed here but I’ll have to check these out too! http://www.wchingya.com/2010/10/contact-form-facebook-page-fbml.html
  2. Still flying high from the positive feedback on the Celebrating Home call today. Big thank you to my friend Joyce La Pierre- Celebrating Home for inviting me! I love helping party plan professionals reach more people!
  3. This is where to go to test how your website or blog looks in any of the browsers people may be using: http://www.browsershots.org/
  4. Did you notice? In your News Feed now, when a Fan Page story shows up, the comments are not shown below it. Only the “talk bubble” with the # next to it – you have to click that to read the comments/feedback. So be sure to click the bubble and jump into the conversation!
  5. I’m speaking tonight at a group called Ambitious Mompreneurs. Sounds like my kinda people!
  6. Did you know you can edit photos free on photoshop.com? Thanks to Jenny from Cupcake- Santa Rosa, Ca for the tip! http://www.photoshop.com/
  7. Great list of Fan Page resources from (Anti) Social Development: http://www.kimwoodbridge.com/16-facebook-pages-that-will-help-you-make-a-facebook-page/
  8. Click here to listen to a 20 minute interview of me about my Incredible Business book chapter! :)
  9. Taking orders for the Incredible Business book – only $22 tax and shipping included: http://www.mybusinesspresence.com/incredible-business-book/
  10. If you have a WordPress site/blog, go to Plugins – Add New – search on “Google XML Sitemaps” and install, then activate it. Then go to Settings – XML Sitemaps and click to configure it (default settings are OK!). It’s a powerful way to add search engine optimzation to your site/blog!
  11. Speaking to the Women’s Initiative ladies tonight about reputation. One of the best ways to protect yourself is to inundate the web with content! Blog, use social media, post to forums, submit articles, use video – over time, there’s no way that 1 negative post/review would ever measure up to the overwhelming evidence of how fabulous you are!
  12. Have you noticed you can’t sort Fan Pages into Friend Lists now? Back to the drawing board!
  13. 5 Reasons You Got Unfriended On Facebook (And How To Prevent It From Happening Again) http://www.allfacebook.com/reasons-unfriended-2010-10
  14. Talking about getting links to your wbesite at today’s Webify Your Business meetup! Here’s an article I am sharing: How to Get One Way Links to Your Website http://www.mybusinesspresence.com/how-to-get-one-way-links-to-your-website/
  15. Thanks to Be A Legacy for sharing this – need ideas for blog posts? http://www.copyblogger.com/brainstorm-blog-topics/
  16. Do you offer or sell something unique that people are looking for? Be sure to talk about it in a fan page status update. For example, I offer WordPresss web design in Sonoma County. Just sayin!
  17. If you are in any of these areas, you can use fullcalendar.com to proliferate your events all over print/media/online for $19.95. It’s great! Areas served (so far!): ?* Atlanta?* Boston?* CA Central Coast?* Denver
  18. Facebook is doing away with applications that use tabs on personal PROFILEs. All the more reason to get thee a fan page! It will be the ONLY place on Facebook that you can add tab apps to such as email sign up, youtube tab, etc.
  19. My newsletter came out this morning. Did you get it? Click the Email Signup tab on this page to sign up – you’ll get a free Facebook Do’s and Don’ts report!
  20. Have you checked your freaky words lately?? :) http://freekeywords.wordtracker.com/
  21. OK I know this is kinda long and looks complicated but I love MailChimp and I love that once you have it set up anyway, it is super easy to add it to a Facebook tab! Here’s a video and step by step instructions. http://www.mybusinesspresence.com/email-signup-facebook/ In order to communicate with your Facebook Fans outside of the Facebook Fan Page, it’s important to capture their email addresses. Easily add an email signup form to your Fan Page using this step by step tutorial.
  22. Examples of what to tweet: http://www.socialmediaexaminer.com/26-twitter-tips-for-enhancing-your-tweets/
  23. Yes yes YES oh yes! Spam filter for Fan Page walls!
  24. Did anyone listen to my Book Launch call? I ended with this: The most important thing to remember is that social media is social – this is interactive thing! People want personal connections. Use the social media tools to help them find you or to reach out to them, but pick up the phone, interact, respond and be social!
  25. Great. New interface for Edit Pages. Looks different but it appears as if everything is there.
  26. More feedback! NICE! “Your kindness and your desire to share information really comes across in your presentations. Thank you.” – From Christeen at Doorways to Tarot: http://www.doorwaystarot.com/ in Healdsburg!
  27. Great feedback from Friday’s presentation! ?”Great to meet you at the Social Biz event on Friday. Karen, you are Top-Notch!! Hands down your class was my favorite! Your energy and quick response to questions made the perfect platform to cover a lot of ground. You gave a social network newbie solid ‘easy to use’ advice that can make a direct impact in 10 minutes a day. Please keep me informed for future classes, you are well worth the drive!” THANK YOU Sandra! Check out her site, she is a singles match maker! www.connectyoutwo.com

  33. This is where you go to get statistics about your Fan Page! http://www.facebook.com/insights
  34. Inspiration is all around me!
  35. Fortune cookie fortune taped to my laptop screen: “Striving for the best will bring you closer to the best.”
  36. At the Leadership Retreat one of the speakers said “Your attitude determines your lattitude.” I loved that! If you want to reach far and wide, manage yourself first.
  37. I get questions all the time about why do social media, why does it work, etc. This article by Appbistro is great – from a scientific perspective! http://blog.appbistro.com/post/1314117179/when-your-brain-gets-social-the-science-of-social Plus, you gotta love those brain pictures!!
