(From the article): Having a mobile-friendly website is not only good for SEO but it’s also good for your visitors.


Around 80% of all Internet usage is mobile devices and, of that, 60% are mobile-searching in their own homes.


If your potential customers and target market have a smartphone, then your website MUST be mobile-friendly… because I’m sure your competitor’s website will be!

Do you invite comments on your Facebook page? When your followers leave comments on your Facebook page, do you reply? Do you participate in discussions with your fans on your Twitter account? If not, then you are missing out on a tremendous opportunity to build goodwill.

I selected this article from Curatti written by Ian Naylor because it explains how to develop a strong social media strategy that works for your business.


It's important to build solid objectives in order to be successful in social media marketing.


Common Social Media Mistakes


While you can create a social media account and begin tweeting or posting this will not guarantee solid growth. I agree that it takes focus and dedication to get real results.


Naylor explains what to avoid and how to properly grow your social brand.


Here's what caught my attention:


  • Avoid spreading yourself too thin on too many networks. Focus on one and then move up from there. It takes time and dedication to develop your community.


  • Include the human touch in your accounts rather than just relying on automation or standard content. When people see the same messages they become bored quickly and move on.


  • It's important to include video as a part of your marketing strategy. People are especially drawn to this medium -- especially live stream broadcasts.

Very good point!

I love that point Martin! I think people call it social because of the personal element to it as opposed to advertising and things like that, especially because it's so interactive in nature. Do you have a suggestion as to what to change the name to?

Very good indeed!
