10 Tips to Help You Achieve Your Goals | Little Things Matter

10 Tips to Help You Achieve Your Goals | Little Things Matter | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

How would you like to increase the odds of achieving your goals? Whether you desire to lose weight, create financial independence, build a healthy marriage, or raise responsible children, the formula for achieving any goal is the same.

Here are 10 tips in sequential order that will help you increase the odds of achieving your goals: (Each link is one of my related lessons.)

 

1. Identify what’s important to you! The only goals you will succeed in reaching are those that are truly important to you. If a goal is not meaningful or significant to you, you will quit when faced with obstacles. Take 30 minutes and make a list of the things that are truly essential in your life; those that you highly value. Then highlight the most important points on that list and set your goals.

How To Get More Out of Triberr

How To Get More Out of Triberr | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

Triberr’s Mantra


Triberr’s mantra (or mission statement, if you went to business school :-p ) is to help bloggers be succesful.


And to bloggers, “successful” means three things:

  • Content distribution
  • Content generation
  • Engagement

1. Content Distribution

This is where Triberr began.


Triberr enables bloggers to form tribes and effectively establish a long-term Tear 1 supporter networks.


Since everyone on Triberr is a blogger -and therefore audience builder- each share is worth much more than a share by your average Joe Facebook user. Gross generalization of course, but accurate for our purposes.

How to Back Up and Move a WordPress Blog

Sometimes you’ll need to move your blog from one host to another. It’s a bit of a pain and might seem a daunting task if you’ve never done it before.


But transferring a site is a fairly straightforward process that you can do yourself with an FTP program and this step-by-step guide.


Before trying the DIY method, it’s worth checking to see whether your new hosting company offers a site transfer service for new customers. Many do—but check whether there’s a cost involved. I’ve seen free services for this, but I’ve also seen prices around $300!


If you just need to learn how to make a simple backup of your posts, and don’t need to move hosts, take a look at this ProBlogger post.


But if you’re ready to back up and move your blog, let’s do it.

60 Inconvenient Personal Development Truths

60 Inconvenient Personal Development Truths | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

I know you want to be the best you can be. We all do. But sometimes we look for success in the wrong places or we try to achieve it in the wrong ways.


Here are 60 inconvenient truths about personal development to help you stay on track.


  1. The acquisition of knowledge doesn’t mean you’re growing. Growing happens when what you know changes how you live.
  2. You can’t have good ideas unless you’re willing to generate a lot of bad ones.
  3. A good idea without action is nothing at all.
  4. It’s not so much about finding opportunities as it is about creating them.
  5. 10% of our lives is decided by uncontrollable circumstances. 90% is decided by how we react to those circumstances.
  6. What we don’t start today won’t be finished by tomorrow.
  7. If you’re waiting for the perfect conditions, ideas or plans to get started, you’ll never achieve anything.

Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, July 18, 2013 2:13 AM

Welll, don't be too intimidated or even bored by the long list... they are perls... OK, you've met perhaps even each (don't think so but might be...) but it's such a goog arrangements to have them together and need nt read a whole book (though there are recommendations within about some)... it is worth even to copy it out to recheck them from time to time... good reading and thinking about them....

Helena Gonçalves's curator insight, August 27, 2013 7:16 AM

It's not about what you know... It's how you act!

Facebook and comScore: “This is how to do social marketing”

Facebook and comScore: “This is how to do social marketing” | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

ComScore released a new study with Facebook today explaining “how social marketing works.” If that sounds to suspicious minds like the fox explaining how to guard the chickens, that’s because it pretty much is. However, the study does contain a huge amount of useful information for social marketers.

Here are some highlights.

 

You’re more popular on Facebook

 

Social profiles on Facebook routinely get more attention than brands’ own websites. The example comScore gives is Skittles, which had 320,000 visitors to its Facebook page in March 2012, versus only 23,000 visitors to its corporate website. And that’s just visitors to the brand page; it does not count impressions of the company’s updates in fans’ news feeds.

 

The clear message from Facebook: pay attention to your Facebook presence.

Instagram vs. Pinterest: Which Is More Important for Brands?

Instagram vs. Pinterest: Which Is More Important for Brands? | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

In the past year and a half we’ve seen a real shift in social media. A move is happening away from the strict confines of the 140 character update towards something more visual.


More than ever, we are sharing images and video with one another — in increasingly simpler ways. In a relatively short amount of time Pinterest and Instagram have both grown into their own juggernaut communities.


Both of these services offer great, new, visual ways to connect with your fans and potential customers, but do you really need to focus on both? In the battle of Instagram vs. Pinterest, which one is a better fit for your brand?

Responsive Web Design: The Ultimate Guide for Online Marketers

Responsive Web Design: The Ultimate Guide for Online Marketers | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

As of February, the smartphone share in the United States has reached nearly 50%. 2012 is FINALLY "the year of mobile" and this means that you need to invest in a mobile user experience. Check your analytics — that mobile traffic share keeps growing!

 

With all of the hype that responsive web design is getting, what are the biggest implications for marketers and SEOs regarding its fit as the long-term mobile strategy?

 

First Of All, What is Responsive Web Design?

 

In a nutshell, responsive web design (RWD) is a technique which uses fluid layouts (which "stretch" to as much screen real estate as possible) in addition to the CSS "@media queries," which apply different style sheets (CSS) based on the current screen size of the device. With responsive design, your website will fit virtually any device with a full browser:

 

smartphones, iPad + other tablets (both landscape and portrait modes), and even TVs. It doesn’t matter that thr Galaxy Tab’s resolution is different from a Nexus S phone — your site will render beautifully, as long as responsive design was correctly implemented.

25 Awesome Free Google Tools for Marketers

25 Awesome Free Google Tools for Marketers | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

Whether you love Google or love to hate Google, you have to admit one thing. Google offers a lot of free tools to use with the convenience of being able to access them with one login.

 

Marketers in particular should take advantage of these tools to get more out of their search engine and social media marketing experience. The following are some of the top Google tools marketers should embrace from A to (almost) Z!

 

1. Google AdSense

Ever created a niche website for linking purposes, affiliate marketing, content development, or another reason that never panned out? If the website gets even a moderate amount of traffic, and you have no other use for it for the time being, why not earn a little income off of it using Google AdSense? By simply placing some ad code in the header, content, and sidebar of the website, you can earn some passive income. The amount you earn will depend on the topic of the website and the amount of visitors it receives.
