The above screengrab comes from a blogpost I was reading by Chris Brogan


The post itself is an extremely worthy read about keeping things simple and achieving more in life by doing so (if this doesn't go along with the lean methodology, I don't know what does!).


The reason this photo is so important, though, is that it displays one of my favorite lean methodologies: providing (what I call) Tweetable Tidbits within your content. If your blogposts and presentations are awesome, they will be shared. The likelihood of them being shared by the same person more than once, though? Slim.


How, then, do we get our readers to share the same content multiple times, similarly to the way we do when we're promoting it? Physically give them different parts of the article to share. If i click on the "tweetable" link, I'm brought to a page with a pre-constructed tweet containing that specific quote as well as - you guessed it - a link to the blogpost that it came from. So, aside from sharing my blogpost, my readers are also sharing valuable tidbits that they found within it with no effort whatsoever.


Stick a few of these into your posts and your tidbits of genius will be more shareable than ever.

Why social media actually works for small business [infographic]

Why social media actually works for small business [infographic] | Virtual Assistant | Scoop.it

Social media is, at its best, an extension of the human relationship and an opportunity to look customers in the eye (digitally, that is), listen to them and interact person to person. This is the first time in history that small businesses have had the potential to build a massive fan base without a Fortune 500 budget.


The social Web is changing the way consumers discover and interact with businesses online and off and the rapid emergence of social media as a major marketing channel has left many small businesses trying to understand how to find ways to use it effectively. Refer to this infographic to help develop a strategy that suits your business.

Always look at the feasibility for visitors to get to a next step with you. If the sign-up, free trial, get help buttons are not in optimal viewing range, your conversion rate will be abysmal. No visitor expects to make a deal right away unless you're an ecommerce site - woo them and be friendly. Think of a shop window if you had a brick and mortar business. That's your website's homepage canvas.....
