That’s right…
as my friend Mike Dillard says:
“Google is completely out of control. Over the past year, they’ve canceled the accounts of their most active, (and legitimate), PPC advertisers resulting in what’s known as “the Google Slap”, in order to provide a “better” search experience to the end user….
Well the word through the grape-vine is that they’ve recently fired the 30,000 outsourcers who make up their compliance department because they’ve essentially kicked EVERYONE off! Ha! ”

Until they get their act together,

new sources of traffic are necessary for your business.
Lucky for you, I keep my eyes opened…
So today I wanted to show something really cool,
and I also have a gift related to that, only for you that are on my list.
What do Bill Gates, Ellen DeGeneres, Ashton Kutcher,
CNN, FOX and NBC have in common?

They promote themselves on twitter to generate new fans,
leads, viewership, news hounds, and music listeners.

You hear “Follow Us On Twitter!” every time you turn on the
TV or Radio! This has caused an enormous avalanche of new
twitter users signing up every second hungry to connect with
like minded people! How do I take advantage of this huge
twitter growth and profit from it?

My Twitter Secrets
I gather as many followers as possible every few days. By doing so I get a fresh
crop ready for my message. You see 70% of most Twitter users quit after the first
30 days.

That’s just one secret but for more:

All the best,

P.S.: I promise you a gift….
If you’re interested in what you’ll see, leave a comment  and
you’ll have your present.

How to Leverage Social Media for Personal Business

Social media started out as a way to keep in touch with friends and family. But as the years went by, people began to realize what a great tool it can be for promoting and growing a business. With a little study, you can also leverage social media to your business’s advantage.

There are many social media platforms out there, and knowing how to leverage as many of them as possible is key to maximize your business’s exposure and reach new potential markets. Here are a few suggestions on how to leverage social media platforms that most people use today.

#1 – Leverage Twitter! Twitter is a micro-blogging platform that lets your business “follow” certain experts, competitors, and other important entities in your niche. Your customers can also follow your “Tweets,” checking out your newest articles, your latest products, and other updates.

#2 – Leverage Facebook! Arguably one of the most popular social media platforms out there, Facebook lets you put up a fan page for your company. Some plugins can also let your “fans” and visitors sign up for your mailing list, and Facebook also has a special program for ads and promos.

#3 – Leverage LinkedIn! LinkedIn is more professional than most other social media platforms, since it focuses on creating contacts between businesses. You can find markets to sell to — as well as other products and services that can help you grow your business even more quickly.

#4 – Leverage Plaxo! Plaxo is a great way to keep your contact list and calendar updated by syncing all your contacts and events from Google, Facebook, Outlook, and other sources into one place. Definitely a great way to keep track of your business’s important activities!

#5 – Leverage MySpace! Sure, it might not be one of the most popular social media platforms out there. But it still commands millions of users, and it’s a pity if you don’t make the most of it!

These are just touching the basics on how you can leverage these social media platforms. It’ll take quite a bit of research to uncover even better ways to use these platforms to your business’s advantage. The good news: It’s always fun, and it often doesn’t cost much, if at all.

Social media will keep growing over the next several years, and some platforms — such as Google Buzz — are very quickly changing the scene. It’s always a good idea to leverage social media to a point that keeps your business on top of the competition.
