Blogs And List Building
A business page is a lot different from a profile page. Profiles are for people while business pages are for business owners like you. Be sure that you don’t mistake setting up the former because profile pages only allows for adding a limited number of friends. So when you hit that number, which is currently at 5,000, you can no longer add friends. What are 5,000 friends if your target is to reach out to several million Facebook users around the world?
You should also try to join groups you find relevant and also to participate in those groups. Be willing to give people advice and have Business profiles related discussions. You will be promoting yourself but not in a loud and boisterous used car salesmen like way, but in a way that shows your knowledge and the skills you have to the world.
There are so many ways to pimp your profile and make it look inviting for others to take a look at. My suggestion is to go to your local book store or library and find books on MySpace to get other ideas.
The first rule about blogging is to make friends. Despite the fact that some blogs are actually corporate, serious and professional in their approach, most blogs these days are friendly and personal. So, what do you have to do to bring people into your blog? Blog hopping. Yes, visit other people’s Creative network and give them comments (genuine ones, please) and provide a link back to your blogs. The key is to MAKE FRIENDS.
As a matter of course when I set up my blog I put in a stat counter. These are available for free all over the web, and by injecting a line of code into your web page or blog you can get fairly sophisticated results as to how many visits you get and for how long the person visited. I never really looked at those stats due to the fact that business and other web development which I considered more important were taking up online blogs all my time.
Blogs were first known to be server log files. And when the internet was introduced, it became web log. By the mid 90s, the virtual community slowly accepted the fact that you can write web logs even if you are just an ordinary person. Thus, the virtual community has fully embraced blogging as a source of information.
Book early, confirm your plans, and ensure you have a receipt in hand as well as 24/7 customer service numbers. This will ensure that you can travel with peace of mind.
