Tired of hearing about how social media was going to change your business overnight? Heard enough speakers & consultants telling you that Twitter & Facebook are the answers to your problems?
The truth is, social media does work, if you treat it like a business function. This isn’t playtime. Nobody needs more “friends”.
Join Adam and social media expert, Jim Kukral, and learn how to use social media as a marketing tactic, and profit from it with more sales, leads and publicity.
Google+ should you be there?
Google+ is one of the newer social media kids on the block and a lot of businesses are wondering if they need to play in that sandbox as well. So what is Google+ all about?
Google+ is a pretty big place to network. Its platform is like a combination of Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn but it's important to understand that even though there are similarities, G+ does not work like Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn and must be treated quite uniquely.
So, should you be using Google+? According to Google, there are over 300 million active users but I think it's important to recognize that that number could be quite skewed. Google is a pretty powerful entity to be dealing with and they have a lot of motivational behavioural power over users.
Andrea Lindal, owner of Lexabi Communications will share her experience with Google+. Lexabi Communications provides a full set of online marketing solutions specializing in social media management, email marketing and digital design. Find out more HERE.

Is social media killing your BOP? Small business and medium businesses have grown to rely on social media to help them brand, "connect" and sell thier services. Some businesses pay to "boost" thier posts for a seemingly larger reach, increase thier fan bases and elevate the awareness of thier BOP. Most believe that though the stats are promising, they are not effective. Many businesses are awaking to a space of confusion, dissapointment and discouragement over things like lack of reach, connection and interactions with thier brands. Many people have seen a sharp decline in the amount of people who see thier posts. Many people have put so much time into social media that they are killing thier businesses. Social media is an illusion. Yes....it is "social" Yes, people (about 6%) will see your posts but even General Motors with 50,000 fans has realized that there is no more money and time to be wasted in trying to build the brand with face book.
We Business Hippies have awoken from this illusion as well. We are leaving face book in 2015 and we already have cut it down to no more than 20 minutes a day for our whole social media portfolio. We realized that we were killing our business through our reliance on facebook to carry our networking weight. The truth is, no one in your news feed really cares, they are not going to buy your products enough to sustain your business, They are likely to not even see your posts. "They" are not the problem. We are. So tonight we will chat about this honestly. Where we went wrong, how we have damaged our business and what we are going to do to thrive in this ADD nation. Join in the conversation!
When it comes to growing your holistic business, social media can either be a powerful way to get in front of new, prospective clients and customers, or it can be a total time and energy suck that gives little in return. It all depends on how you use it. In this week's show I'll show you simple strategies that will help you maximize your social media efforts - in an authentic and heart-centered way.

With the impressively staggering number of active users that Facebook boasts, savvy business owners are (or should be) continuously considering how to get the attention of their slice of the more than a billion monthly users. There is a growing expectation among consumers that businesses provide an active social outlet for them to interact with. As inbound marketing continues to grow, there are a few key methods for attracting the right kind of followers; plus a few to avoid completely.
Marla Loyva, from Cohesion Media, will discuss the vital key methods include the creation of new and compelling content for your page, using distinctive graphics that support your brand, creating a holistic plan of how to integrate Facebook with the rest of your marketing strategy, and finally - properly utilizing the Facebook Ads feature with targeted and relevant ads that have a defined purpose. It may not be instantaneous, but the steady growth you experience can deliver real results.
