Women Are Using Computers and Technology More Than Ever
Note I used the word engagement. Not selling, not spamming and definitely not preaching
What many companies fail to understand is business success on twitter is secondary to relationship building. Twitter is a two-way conversation. It's about engagement. You have to get out there and comment, compliment, reply and add value. It's your golden opportunity to share your brand personality with the world.
There has never been a more exciting time to be an entrepreneur. The opportunities to build your presence online and attract attention to your brand using Twitter are endless. The important key for entrepreneurs and companies using Twitter is understanding that it's about sharing, NOT selling. Followers want to see real people with real experiences.
Relationships take time to develop, and what matters is quality, not quantity
While I agree that building an active support network is one of the keys to success, it shouldn't be done at the expense of genuine, mutually engaged relationships. Harvey Mackay wrote the book more than a decade ago. I just really like the title. For harvey, it was all about how to get what you want from the world through networking and while I agree that building an active support network is one of the keys to success, it shouldn't be done at the expense of genuine, mutually engaged relationships.
In other words, don't think of people as merely stepping stones to get you where you need to go. If you're not in it to develop real relationships, there are those who will smell your insincerity a mile away. Sure, we all have an agenda of some sort - goals, objectives, things we want to accomplish. But if you start to use people as the main source of fulfilling your agenda, your ultimate success (if you actually achieve it) will be built like a house of cards.
Internet marketing can bring you a considerable income, but only if you invest time and effort
If You are like me, then you must have been struggling for some time now, or maybe you are just starting out, in internet marketing. At first, most probably what convinced you to take this step were statements like "make $10,000 in 24 hours" or "quit your regular job by six o'clock tomorrow morning" or any of those other outrageous claims that seem to be flying around on the internet these days. However, as time goes by and you strive to get over that learning curve, you realize that you have to re-adjust your expectations.
Now, in this article I want to share with you what I consider to be the seven most important Internet marketing tips for creating a successful online business.
For any webmaster that keeps a keen eye on their site analytics, and all the good ones do, it is always a pleasant surprise to see a new and unexpected source of traffic. Until recently, unless you owned a technology based website, it was unlikely you would have seen Digg as one of those emerging traffic sources. However, the whirlwind popularity of the service has seen it delve into new depths and open its community based website up to a much broader range of categories.
Digg has long been a phenomenon with websites in the technology industry. A well written article can be submitted by anybody for review, and other Diggers read and rate the article. The more Diggs an article receives, the higher up the list of articles it traverses. Reaching the front page for a topic can see a sluice of traffic hit your site in a short space of time while the coveted front page could virtually bring your hosting server down single-handedly.
I get asked a lot about widgets: what are they, what do I do with them?
I’m sure entire books are being written on the subject, but I’ve learned a lot in the process of working on Microsoft’s TechNet widget and thought I would share some of the basics in hopes of shedding some light on this relatively new medium. Essentially, widgets (sometimes called gadgets) are tiny applications that provide fast access to information. In these days of information overload, widgets provide easy access to up-to-the minute content we want, almost wherever we want it. Widgets can reside anywhere HTML is accepted: on your web page, intranet, or even on your mobile phone. They make delivering and receiving the most relevant information a snap and are rapidly improving how we work with information to get our job done.
