Social media for personal use and social media for your business are two
different worlds. If you are used to using these sites for your own personal
satisfaction then you are ahead of the game in understanding, but you will still
need the advice of this article to show you how you can best market your
business through them.
Learn to utilize YouTube. You can post videos related to your business on
this site. This allows you to create a greater personalization with your
customers as they hear your voice and see your face. If you have a Twitter
account, you can send links to your new content, increasing your YouTube
Try adding pictures to your social media site. People get a better
understanding of a product when they can literally see it. And, when people
understand your product, they are more likely to purchase it. You do not need to
have too many pictures, just a few should do the job.
Sign up for Twitter. Get as many followers as you can by signing up for
blogging sites like Tweepi.com. Using a site like this makes it easier for
people to find you on Twitter. Tweet regularly about other bloggers. You should
also automate your tweets so they aren't forgotten about by your followers.
Find bloggers within your niche, and leave comments on their blogs. The great
thing about comments is that you can usually leave a link with the comment,
giving readers of that blog a way to find your site or blog. While sticking with
blogs with bigger followings is more likely to generate more traffic for you,
visitors from smaller blogs can add up as well.
Utilize RSS feeds. These all people to subscribe to your feed and have the
posts go into their Google Reader account once your feeds are published. This
makes your content accessible in an easy-to-access way for your customers. Make
the button to subscribe easy to identify, so the whole process takes no effort
on the part of those visiting your site.
Try using linking applications on Twitter to post to your other social media
profiles at the same time. These linking applications are a huge time saver.
When you post a message on Twitter, it will automatically post the same message
on your Facebook, YouTube, and Google+ profiles, so you don't have to sign into
all of them to post the same content.
Try to map out your objectives and goals for participation when starting a
social media marketing campaign. Make them available throughout the company so
that everyone within the organization is on the same page. Results from social
media marketing will be more productive and better focused when all activities
are aligned and working towards the same goals.
As you can see, there is a lot of information regarding how to set up your
business on social media sites. Hopefully the questions you had were all
answered here. If not, then use this as a starting point to research many other
ways in which you can use these platforms to increase your business.

Do you find your website's affiliate marketing plan is working? Want to learn
how to help improve upon it? If you are ready, then you have come to the right
place. The tips that are listed below, contain advice on what you can do to
create a better affiliate marketing plan.
A profitable affiliate marketing program should require no more than an hour
and half of supervision per day. While the time cost of affiliate programs will
be greater during the initial set-up period, website owners who find themselves
spending two, three or more hours dealing with their affiliates every day,
should re-think their affiliate partnerships.
As an affiliate marketer you need to know what your viewers and customers
expect of you. Research by visiting blogs, discussion boards and online forums.
Ask your potential customers questions and for tips. This will provide them with
what they want while making sure your marketing gives it to them.
In addition to advertising a product or products for a vendor, try to
establish your own product line. Marketing your own product gives you a greater
chance of developing a profitable business. The most obvious advantages of
having your own product are: (1) You can have affiliates working for you doing
the advertising. (2) You have complete control (over pricing, sales copy, etc)
of your product. (3) If you are promoting an affiliate product you can influence
your customer by offering your product as a bonus. (4) You gain extra
credibility. The top marketing experts all have their own product, they don't
rely on affiliate products created by others.
When promoting a product as part of an affiliate marketing program, you will
see the most benefit out of showing your readers how the product specifically
benefits them. Just because something is a good product doesn't mean your
readers care about it. You need to give specific examples as to why this
particular product is something they need in order to get them to buy.
To be a successful affiliate marketer you should be working to build up your
sub-affiliate network. These are people who are going to push the product for
you thus earning you a healthy commission with half the work. This won't happen
right away but it is something to aspire to as a marketer.
A great affiliate marketing tip is to join some forums and post on them
regularly. Forums can be a great way to promote products because you can include
a link to a product in your signature. Every time you post people will see the
link in your signature.
Practice good customer service! With affiliate marketing, you still need to
remember that the customer is always right! If you are too stuck on your
opinion, your customer may decide not to use your site anymore! Be open to all
opinions. If you lose a customer because of your opinion, the unhappy customer
may talk to people that they know which could result in a decrease in your
After reading through this article, you ought to be a bit excited to start
experimenting and trying new programs and plans. Hopefully, these new things
will yield results that work for you. If not, try something else until you are
pleased with the results. That's the best part about affiliate marketing; you
can experiment with it.

Millions upon millions of Baby Boomers are preparing to retire, but when
you take a close look at the numbers it quickly becomes clear that it is
mathematically impossible for us to keep the financial promises that we have
made. Why? Well, because there is no money. The U.S. government is supposed to
have 2.5 trillion dollars in the Social Security trust fund for all of these
retiring Baby Boomers, but they ‘borrowed” all of that money over the past 30
years to pay other bills.
Meanwhile, American workers have been contributing pitifully small amounts
to their own retirement funds. So where does all of that leave us? It leaves us
with a complete and total financial nightmare on our hands.
Over half of the working population has completely lost faith in the Social
Security system. Right now approximately half of all American workers have less
than $2000 saved for retirement.
As the economy continues to collapse, the retirement crisis is going to get
even worse. Something is going to have to give. Things are going to become very
uncomfortable for large numbers of people.
3.5 Million Americans retired in 2011 more will retire in 2012.
53% Are unable to make ends meet
73 % Are working past retirement age
41 % Are scaling back
31 % Believe they will struggle financially
61 % of Americans “always or usually” live paycheck to paycheck.
In my opinion Online Business holds the most hope for many of these
Low start up cost, company training and the power of the internet are just
a few of the many reasons why.
My desire is to help as many people as possible through what I have
