Awesome Twitter Handbook for Free!

twitterbirdI haven’t even gotten to Twitter yet, but this link is just too good to miss! Twitter is a new application.. at least to me that involves Micro-blogging. Twitter defines itself  “Social networking and micro blogging service utilizing instant messaging, SMS or a web interface.” You can only use 140 characters per message that people who are subscribed to you can read on their cell phone text messaging service or on the web. Friends “follow” you and you can “follow” friends, the control is all up to you. Even Barack Obama is on twitter trying to keep the younger web 2.0 people informed and hyped up about voting for him… But enough of me trying to explain it..

“Twitter is a social network used by millions of people, and thousands more are signing up every day to send short messages to groups of friends. But where’s the user manual for Twitter? Where do new Twitter users go to learn about Tweeting, retweets, hashtags and customizing your Twitter profile? Where do you go if you want to know all about building a community on Twitter, or using Twitter for business? How can you find advanced tools for using Twitter on your phone or your desktop? To answer all these questions and more, we’ve assembled The Twitter Guide Book, a complete collection of resources for mastering Twitter. Happy Tweeting!”

The way I am using this is to follow my “mentors” in the internet business. Take a look and see if it has an application for you.

Facebook and You!

Yes I know what most ADULTS think of the likes of Facebook, MySpace etc…. but really REALLY … Facebook is becoming the Face of entrepreneurs who want to get who they are, what they stand for and what they want to do for you out there in the public eye via the web.

I started years ago on MySpace and Facebook because I’m a VERY smart Mom… and knew it was a great way to see what my kids were doing… keep up with the current “lingo” and get copies of pictures taken of my girls that I’d never see or get anywhere else (I’m a Photo Scrapbooking Junkie!) but that a whole OTHER Blog topic…. Anyway, it’s a great idea for you parents out there who haven’t done it yet. But THEN….

Recently in the past 6 months or so… MY friends (like the over 30 set) were starting to show up on Facebook and friend me…. WOW.. I thought… this is cooler than getting poked and smashed by pumpkins by my kids & their friends. Then I linked up with Andrea Kalli who linked me up with Mari Smith (the Facebook Lady) and I’ve been off and running ever since.

So your to do list for today is
1. Go set up a profile on Facebook.

There are TON’s of other Social Networking sites to hook up with.. But I’m starting with this one first!

Let me know how you did!

Search Engine Submissions SEO

Search Engine Optimization? Is your web site optimized for Google, Yahoo & BING?

Have you got a great website, but not getting any business from it? Search Engine Submission (SEO) is the most often missed part of website setup, and THE most important!

There are amazing webpages all over the net that no one but the business owner, his relatives and the designer has seen. But why can’t we find them on search engines?

Either they have no meta tags, haven’t been optimized, the tags are incorrectly used, or the site has never been submitted to the search engines.

It’s pointless to have a great site if no one can find it, and the only traffic you get is traffic you sent there. The whole point of a website is to get more exposure and more business! You can, but only if you don’t leave out these last two crucial steps… Optimization and Submission.

I am available on an hourly basis for Meta and alt tag creation, site optimization and search engine submissions.
