The Stuff I Love to Share on Facebook

My love/hate relationship with Facebook rumbles on. The last ten days since 20th January 2017 have been perhaps my hardest ever, and over the weekend I have already begun investigating an alternative for my Facebook groups. That’s a discussion for another day. Today’s discussion is about the things I love about Facebook, some of which I would miss if I were not on FB any more (which I do not rule out right now): Things that make me go Wow! Things that seem funny to me (often me, one of my greatest sources of amusement) Woo woo – Feng Shui, […]

How to Do Facebook Brilliantly

Last week I had a brave stab at explaining to a client, using the written word, the difference between broadcasting and engaging on social media. I didn’t do a particularly good job. I think it could have been more easily explained in the spoken word, better still by demonstration. But here’s the interesting thing. While I was trying to explain that, someone was demonstrating it on Facebook perfectly. And exactly as I was attempting to describe. In real time. Live. Building relationships, achieving rapport, showing interest in me, and making a fan for life. And that person is Daphne. Here’s the whole story. […]

When I Like You on Facebook

Yesterday I wrote about how I use Facebook for my business. And today, in a related follow-up piece, I am sharing what it means when I Like something of yours on Facebook, ‘cos there’s an almost infinite number of reasons why I might do that. Here’s just a handful: When I Like something of yours on Facebook, I am saying some or all of the following. I’ve seen this. I’ve read this. I acknowledge this. I am grateful to you for sharing this. I am glad I am in your life and can see what’s going on with you and […]

Me, Facebook and My Business

Let’s face it, most of us have a love/hate relationship with Facebook. On 7th December, as I write this, I am contemplating a digital detox for much of the two weeks I am taking off over Christmas and the New Year. Too much time online makes Judith a dull and headachy girl and there’s no doubt that being online 24/7 is addictive and that’s always painful and unhealthy. I don’t use Facebook for my friends and family. I never have and I never will. This means that, one way or another, 100% of my activity on Facebook is marketing for […]

Marketing Your New Business On A Shoestring Budget

New business owners are always in need of advice about how to market their businesses on a shoestring budget. Apart from some early mistakes where I attempted to advertise my coaching business, I have only ever marketed my business online. This is mostly all I know and it does seem relatively inexpensive to me in terms of the money you have to spend. You need a good website, yes, you do. And you need a blog on that website. You need to invite people to opt in to your list while visiting your website, giving you permission to market to […]

My Personal Blueprint For Developing A Social Media Strategy

Today Caroline asked in my Money-Making Magic Group: “Hi All, I know there are a few people in here good at the old social media. I’m getting going with FB, Twitter and Linkedin and I really want to have a clear plan/strategy re how often I post, how often I tweet, what each will be about, knowing what I’m doing when I’m sharing with others on social media and so on. I wondered for those of you who are using all of this in your businesses, do you have a plan with it, any resources you could recommend for me to read to […]

Just Another Manic Monday – In Anticipation of Project De-Bag

I promise you that today I didn’t work as hard as I often do. Nevertheless, here is a list of what I did do. I list this as part of my preparation for the de-baggaging project, about which more later.   First I begin with awareness. If I know what I am up to, I can elect to do less of it. Began the week with our usual T1ME team meeting with Janet & Yvonne on DimDim (new, cheaper web conferencing service we are testing out as an alternative to Instant Teleseminar) which makes us all feel rather dim dim as […]
