Update October 15, 2012
Today's update is about the material used by Birgit Pauli-Haack during the event.
What is it that really excites you? What it is that stirs your passion, gets you going?
Is it something you make? Something you do? Is it some service you perform for others? Some talent you have? Find out how to grow a business from avocation to vocation at the Turning Your Passion-2-Profit entrepreneurial trade show and seminar.
Set for Saturday, October 13, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Florida Gulf Coast University, the conference is organized the Small Business Development Center at FGCU and Southwest Florida Business Today and will feature as keynote speaker Jerry Ross, lifelong entrepreneur and Executive Director of the National Entrepreneur Center in Orlando.
On our journey through Facebook Brand Pages, we still encounter Facebook Brand Pages that have yet to add a cover photo. Since March, our graphic designers have created a few Facebook covers for our clients. The collection might inspire you with one or two ideas for your own.
We had very lively and interesting discussions throughout the 90 minutes presentation. Participating business owners contributed good questions and conclusions. As promised, the slide deck is published on slideshare.net for your self-study and for following up on all links mentioned during this event. Harry Looknanan and I also discussed some more ideas regarding an upcoming Social Networks Bootcamp for Business Owners. If you have particular topics or questions that you would like included, please post them in our comment section below. Also if you are interested in attending the Social Networks Bootcamp session, let us know and we will make sure that you will be notified.
Ever since #f8 the Facebook Developer conference, Mark Zuckerberg used to announce major changes to the Facebook OpenGraph and the Facebook Timeline. I followed the event and also collected a few stories especially on Facebook Privacy on a new curation tool called Scoop.it.
A couple of weeks ago, AAUW CA Online Branch Program director, Sandy Kirkpatrick, and we discussed a few scenarios and disected who will see what posting, comment or tag, for the various privacy settings in your account. As a part of the program, I was also asked if I could explain Facebook Timeline and how it will change how our profile appears for our friends. To answer that question, I took a deep dive in my own Facebook Timeline and published my experience on the non-profit technical support site of the Naples Free-Net. You can read all about it here:
So, you've jumped into (or, are thinking about jumping into), the social media fray to expand your business or organization's online marketing horizons, by creating a Facebook business page. Good for you! You're on the right track, so congratulate yourself. A lot of small business owners don't even bother to create a page -- they're simply not on? Facebook, (or online, for that matter).
Facebook makes it easy for you to be an online advocate for the organizations you care about, and spread the word about events and good deeds happening in your community. How? Tag it!
In previous posts, we've talked about how to create a more dynamic Facebook experience through tagging, and more effective ways to share information with your friends about the organizations and causes you care about. Now, we'll address how to setup your Facebook page so that it appears more approachable, and is more interactive.
A few days back, I found this short post in my news feed on Facebook. I was already familiar with PACE Center for Girls, and I was interested, but I found the post sharing the good news a bit anti-climactic.
Some of us are happy to share links, videos, information, and quotes with our friends on Facebook, and some of us are also active in various online communities that have Facebook pages. More frequently, I find myself in the situation that I am sharing connected information over more than one page, and with my own personal friends. And, you might have seen that other people tag friends in photos. You can do that also in posts.
