Funsational It’s Not Just About The Product

I love what we do.

Funsational

Here is a great website and an even better product. Who doesn’t like games right? So there we are sitting down with the CEO of Funsational today. I’m thinking to myself…These folks get millions of hits a month on their websites…Why do they need us?

Here is the answer: It’s all in perspective. Who is Funsational….Not what. We have the ability to take OZ from behind the curtain. Wouldn’t you rather make a purchase from a person not a company? Would you like to know that your purchase is going to someone with a family. Someone with a dream that he is working 20 hrs a day to make come true? I know I certainly do and want to help them tell their story. That is how we can help. We can turn a Cooperation into a family. How simple is that? It is all in the perspective. I just have one more thing to say….

I love what we do!

Teaching Seems To Be In My Blood

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook Post to Google Buzz Send Gmail Post to LinkedIn Post to Delicious Post to Digg Post to FriendFeed Post to Squidoo Post to StumbleUpon

 

Thumbs up facebook

I spent the afternoon today teaching a workshop at The Institute For Extended Learning, an adult education branch of The Community Colleges of Spokane. It was a three hour program and I had a great time teaching the students at today’s workshop. It was interactive to say the least, and the technology that was available in the classroom was amazing. I am honored to be part of the teaching staff at Spokane Falls Community College and heck it was just a really fun. The office staff made me feel right at home. I can’t wait for the next workshop series to begin……Coming soon to a hi-tech classroom near you!

Below is a brief list of what we covered in today’s workshop.

 

Google Profile

Setting up a Google profile is one of the most important things you can do for your business or for your personal use. Consider your Google profile as your on-line business card. There are so many ways within the format of your profile to show what you do and how well you do it. The Google profile and subsequent Gmail address becomes the center of all of our online promotion for your company.  It is the Miracle Grow of your garden.

YouTube basics

YouTube: YouTube is the internet’s number-one video sharing site, with 35 percent of users between 18 and 34 years old. NSVRC can create its own channel with organized playlists of videos that can be embedded anywhere on the net, increasing the potential for viral spread.

Twitter basics

Twitter: This micro-blogging platform allows users to make short, 140-character posts, which are then displayed in a feed along with the posts of other users to whom they’ve subscribed. Here you can post factual information, announce events and recent blog posts and interact with the Twitter community. By monitoring relevant keywords and phrases, you can also join conversations and suggest resources when appropriate.

Facebook basics

Facebook: Users tend to be middle- and upper-class young adults ages 18 to 34, though older generations are creating Facebook accounts in growing numbers. Facebook is the number-one photo sharing site in the world, and also offers users the option to upload video, blog posts and links to other content. you can create a group page with recent news, a discussion board, a calendar of events and links to officers’ and administrators’ personal Facebook accounts.

Blog/website overview

A blog/website is the your single platform to let your customers know exactly who you are. You create awareness with the other social media platforms but a blog lets the customer get to know who you really are. Posting with consistency and regularity will also increase your rankings.

Invitation To Speak

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook Post to Google Buzz Send Gmail Post to LinkedIn Post to Delicious Post to Digg Post to FriendFeed Post to Squidoo Post to StumbleUpon

Itt Tech SpokaneWe had a Great time at the Launchpad INW event: How Technology And Innovation Are Changing Business. It was hosted at the Meadow Wood Technology park in Liberty Lake WA. We met with many of the leaders of business in Spokane WA. One thing that made me smile tonight was an invitation by the director of ITT Tech here in Spokane. He invited us to speak to the outgoing class about the importance of Social Media in the changing economy. I’m thinking this should be a great opportunity. I’ll keep you posted on how it goes.

I had the pleasure of popping into the Parisian Cupcake today to pick up some goodies for my babies 1st birthday party tomorrow! This charming little hole in the wall is nestled into the south hill, located right on the southeast corner of Grand and 24th. With pink walls and shabby chic decor, they had me at “cupcake!”

I look forward to meeting with  Melody and Steven soon! And wish them LOTS of cupcake frosted success!!

“People Talking About This” On Facebook Pages

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook Post to Google Buzz Send Gmail Post to LinkedIn Post to Delicious Post to Digg Post to FriendFeed Post to Squidoo Post to StumbleUpon

Monte Tareski

Thursday, October 6th, 2011

You have probably noticed a new statistic has appeared on your page under your like count called People Talking About This.This is the newest stat that is visible to everyone who visits your page.

So What Does It Mean
It is meant to show people visiting your page the number of people on Facebook who have engaged with your page in the last 7 days and to give them an idea on how compelling your content is.

Since Facebook made changes to pages that allows anyone to engage with your page, the total people talking about your page draws from more than just the total likes your page has, it includes everyone who uses Facebook.

So How Is It Measured
It is a measure of how many people (likers and non-likers) are talking about your page , posting on your wall, liking your posts, sharing your posts or other content (i.e. photos, videos etc), answering questions you are asking, mentioning your page in their posts, liking or sharing a deal or checking in if you are using places.

So How Will This Affect Pages
The goal is for pages to offer quality content that people want to get involved in and share with their friends. No longer can pages just post, they need to get involved in conversations and develop relationships with their likers.

Future
From all reports this is just the start of the new statistics Facebook will be providing for pages. So keep an eye on your Page Insights for further developments.
