Using Social Media @ Work - InfoGraphic Belew 11 2 hoursRev (2572): @Belew I think the "work on a promise" meme has been beaten to death after a long and abusive relationship. So many business saw it as nothing more than a source of free labor which they could, and did, take advantage of. Interns and apprentices, however, still represent a lessor tapped resource. And you are right about the cost. I've used both and you need to be prepared to give as much as you get -- maybe even more -- for it to...

I am really lousy at search or I am losing . Belew 4 22 hoursSteve (2773): Most contact us forms, emails, etc... are directed towards someone in sales.... these are still monitored, as much as they ever were in my opinion. There has definitely been a shift from including full contact details, address, telephone, etc... to just digital contact or in some cases digital backed up with a phone... Addresses add validity but aren't used as often as they used to be.

Got Father's Here? Happy Day to Ya! Belew 3 5 daysSeniorpreneur (43): This is a good example for seniors 50+ to learn and practice. Too many seniors whether they are able or disabled are presently vegetating on their own 'pasture land'. They don't recognize that they have the opportunity with the help of caring mentors, lifelong learning and will power to sprint across the finish line after having an abundant and meaningful retirement life.

Do We Have Any Adwords Experts Who Can Teach Belew 5 11 daysjycmba (2104): @Belew - Ah, here's excerpts from what my friend Dyan says.. ".. We did apply for the grant in 2014. It's a deceptively simple application --- it is extremely competitive. Hundreds of thousands of applicants. I think the key is to be in a niche but very good at what you do. Pretty much the most important capability an org can show is that they can effectively measure the success / impact of their programs, and how they are doing...
Social Media Metrics chrisleffler 20 11 daysglobalman22 (46): I especially like @Steve's comment above: "We all monitor different things... most count new followers... some monitor engagement... but the only one worth monitoring is the conversion of social media followers in to prospects ( those entering your sales funnel ) and ultimately customers". If the purpose of your efforts is a commercial endeavor, I'm sure it all comes down to conversions.
Does this Happen to You on Twitter? Belew 3 11 daysBelew (7969): @chrisleffler Twitter analytics.

Twitter: New Ad Format Tested on Twitter chrisleffler 10 16 daysRev (2572): @chrisleffler Wasn't putting them down and certainly use them. More so since I've been on Blab. I was just pointing out that there is a tendency for these companies to take on the features and functions of everyone else and thus dilute the mission. MacDonald's success was a mediocre hamburger that was both affordable and consistent anywhere in the world. Their downfall may well be trying to serve up a menu that suits everyone. Where is Ray...

Shopping Cart Recommendation? PatS 13 22 daysRev (2572): @Summerbay It is now free for just 10 product listings. (it used to be 100) but costs for more: $15/month for 100, $35/month for 2500, $99/month for unlimited. Still good value if it is what you need. I do have a handful of grandfathered 100 listing free accounts from which I could be persuaded to part for a small fee.
