How to Setup a Wordpress Blog in 5 Minutes

How to Setup a Wordpress Blog in 5 Minutes | Social Media Self Learning | Scoop.it

I started my blog using WordPress and I have found it a platform that makes it easy to own and publish your own content online.

 

It is the foundation to the success of this blog which currently receives over 300,000 hits per month.

 

If you’re looking for an easy way to create a web presence and start sharing your ideas online, the best way to do this is to create a blog. Millions of users around the world already express themselves and share their thoughts by means of their personal blogs.

 

The advantage of having your own WordPress blog that is self-hosted is that you own it.

 

It is good to have a Facebook “page” or a Tumblr blog but they are owned by someone else and you can have a web presence there but under their “Terms and Conditions” It is basically a rental.

How to Totally Suck at Marketing [Slideshow]

How to Totally Suck at Marketing [Slideshow] | Social Media Self Learning | Scoop.it

Are you partying ... I mean marketing ... like it's 1999?

And while we generally use our blog to give marketers advice and provide helpful tips, how-to's, and information about the latest trends so they can do marketing that doesn't suck, sometimes it's also helpful to understand what "bad" means so you know exactly what to avoid -- and create marketing people love instead!

 

So if you're curious about what you should be doing to totally suck at marketing, the following slideshow will show you the way. Just don't say we never told you so ...

Influencers on social media are either passionate individuals who turn out to be specialists or professionals involved who use Web 2.0 tools as part of their work. They take advantage of their presence on social networks for personal gain or as representative (or ambassador) a brand, company or organization.

Leave My Brand Alone - What happens when the brands we favor come under attack?

It makes sense when people rush to the defense of close family members or even particular places or objects with special significance—think of the house you grew up in, or the bed you have had since childhood. But why do people rush to the defense of brands?
