Stay Between The Social Media Lines

So meaty, this post!!

BundlePost

The other day I was working in my office and my lil man (5-year-old) was in his play room coloring. Every 5 minutes or so he would come into my office carrying his dinosaur coloring book open to his latest masterpiece in order to show Papa what amazing creation he Stay between the lineshad completed this time. As this continued over at least an hour, I noticed that he was improving on his accuracy, and also getting substantially more creative with his colorful interpretations of what a dinosaur should look like.

As this went on, it reminded me of a 1992 Isuzu commercial from my (eh hem) childhood. The video featured a crusty old make teacher, patrolling his elementary school classroom full of students who were coloring. The teacher stoically navigates the classroom while repeating the phrase “Stay between the lines, the lines are our friends.

Want to Delete the Social Media World you are in? There are times I have wanted to drive to the beach and throw my laptop and cell phone in the ocean. Then just sit and listen to the roar of the ocean as it swallows up the noise. Listening as the constant ping noise of notifications from across the social graph transforms into a simple refreshing ocean mist. The waves ripping apart the newsfeeds that contain a roller coaster of emotions from everyone’s daily lives. Political battles and discussions drifting away and lost at sea forever more. Oh and glory be, no more talk about ‘Content Marketing’! Just the peaceful yet powerful sound of the ocean. How heavenly! Wiping everything away like hitting a giant reset button. Can you feel that sigh of relief? I know I’m not the only one that feels this way at times. Right?

News Feed FYI: Showing More Timely Stories from Friends and Pages

One thing we can always count on is Facebook Updates. Here’s the latest from the News Feed team .

Facebook Newsroom

By Erich Owens, Software Engineer and David Vickrey, Engineering Manager

Our goal with News Feed is to show everyone the right content at the right time so they don’t miss the stories that are important to them. We’ve heard feedback that there are some instances where a post from a friend or a Page you are connected to is only interesting at a specific moment, for example when you are both watching the same sports game, or talking about the season premiere of a popular TV show. There are also times when a post that is a day or two old may not be relevant to you anymore. Our latest update to News Feed ranking looks at two new factors to determine if a story is more important in the moment than other types of updates.

Factoring in trending topics

One way we show timely content higher-up in…

You Charge This Much Money For Social Media ??? by @smconnec

My favorite part of this post? ” If you want to hire someone who spends 2 minutes a day on your social media management who charges $99 a month, then be my guest, but odds are that they probably won’t have the knowledge or ability to execute a proper strategy, let alone achieve anything resembling real results.” Great job, Samantha. Proud to collaborate with you in our Social Agency group of pros.

A Guest Post By Samantha Cangelosi

You charge how much for social media marketing?Who doesn’t like referrals from current clients? Having your social media agency referred to someone else shows that your current clients are obviously happy with your services, and that’s ultimately what any business owner would want, right?

When I received a referral from a client last week, I was excited about the potential business. This, however, wasn’t a typical referral call. Rather than calling about hiring me, this man reached out to me about a potential partnership between him and me. (He is a web designer with several clients looking for help with social media.)

Couldn’t hurt to talk to him about it… so I thought.

Our phone call began on a somewhat normal note — him asking me questions about how I long I’ve been doing what I do and how I came to work with the client we have in common. Simple…

1 Easy Way To Increase Social Media Engagement Right Away

This post by Robert Caruso really brings home our human nature in terms of engaging in ‘real time’ with each other, another form of instant gratification which shores up relationships in a very positive manner.

There are a few things we know about most human beings. Things that make us human and also extremely unique in the animal world. We are certainly creatures of habit we both consciously and unconsciously migrate toward the path of least resistance and embrace activities that make us feel good inside. We also avoid things, activities and people that hurt our feelings consciously or even unconsciously. These unique aspects about people also correlate with our online connections and relationships.

Increase EngagementThis came up Monday on one of my Facebook threads where I posted about sneezing and subsequently popping my neck and back out. Yes, I know I am old, let’s move on shall we? 🙂

In this thread, my good friend Rick Cooper made a comment of – “Rick Cooper – Is there anytime you don’t have a computer or mobile device at your fingertips Robert? You’re the fastest responder in the West!” To…
