LinkedIn case study: How James Filbird uses LinkedIn as his main social media resource to build a successful international business from China.


“If you can’t make money on LinkedIn, you’re deaf, dumb and blind,” says James Filbird of JMF International Trade Group.


It’s 6 pm on the west coast of the United States, but it’s already 9 am tomorrow at James Filbird’s apartment in Shenzhen, China.

Filbird is the proprietor of JMF International Trade Group Ltd., a company he built to $5 million in revenue largely through his efforts on LinkedIn, the only major social media platform that is not blocked by the Chinese government.

5 Ways To Get Your Infographic To Go Viral [infographic]

5 Ways To Get Your Infographic To Go Viral [infographic] | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

Tweet, Tweet. Any time you hear someone mention infographics you’ll usually hear the word viral in the same sentence. But what a lot of people don’t tell you is how to actually get it to go viral?

Marty Note
Yes, this post brings up a good point. Just because you build it doesn't mean they will come especially now that we are swimming in infographics. First, start with a viral idea such as making an infographic about how to make infographics go viral (lol), then follow these tips.

I would add the P word to this list. Pinterest loves infographics and pinned and repinned for a longer time on Pinterest and people come into your account. I've found followers on Pinterest harder to come by than on Twitter, but Pinterest followers are more valuable and they love infographics.

How to Pin With Purpose on Pinterest

How to Pin With Purpose on Pinterest | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

Visual content is crazy-hot these days, and the hottest place for sharing it is Pinterest. Traffic to the virtual pinboard site has shot up exponentially in the past year.
But how effectively are businesses sharing their visual content on Pinterest? Unfortunately, not very. Most companies grab images from wherever they can and share them with little aforethought. Savvy content marketers, however, know the power of Pinterest and share content purposefully.
To learn how to best share visual content on Pinterest, check out the following suggestions, based on James Medd's MarketingProfs article, "Pinterest Beyond the Basics: A Marketer's Guide to Successful Pinning."


  • Plan your pins

Internet Marketing Secrets - Taxonomy, SEO and Scoopit

Internet Marketing Secrets - Taxonomy, SEO and Scoopit | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

Wrote this post on ScentTrail after Guillaume Decugis asked me a simple question. Had to prove there are no simple questions in Internet marketing (lol). I started trying to set a record for words in a comment box and then realized I needed to move to a ScentTrail Marketing post. The post outlines how Scoop.it is better equiped to cross the Content / Commerce Rubicon than any tool I've seen or worked with. A few tweaks to the UI, exposing the analytics to visitors and, grafting ecommerce easily into the engine solves the impossible and seemingly mutually exclusive. 

Ecommerce is just another series of scoops:

  • Products
  • L2 Subcategories
  • Sale Area
  • Reviews and other "tribal" "like me" content.
  • Search

Add those features or just partner with Shopify or Magento Go and leave holes for the content in those great template based ecommerce partners and Scoop.it is the first to cross a big river. Hope so and hope I helped in some small way. This post may be ineresting to read if you want to see how I make decisions about commerce and content.
