social media

Welcome! / Redirect!

Hi, if you’re coming over from Firepole welcome! If you’ve come to my blog today coincidentally, welcome as well! If you’re one of the later go check out the guest post I did over at Firepole regarding the best way to manage a social media campaign. Guiding your way through the twist and turns to success rather than launching a campaign and hoping for the best.

Those of you coming from Firepole, thanks for stopping by. I had hoped to have a number of post made recently that would hook you on my blog. Unfortunately this time of year has been crazy busy between school, work, and rugby. That being said I have written articles but didn’t like how they turned out. Therefore they ended up in the digital trash bin. I encourage you to look around the site and if you like it, keep checking back. Once the rest of my life calms down I’ll get back to writing on a more regular basis.

 

Once again thanks for stopping by!

Without further ado top three best URL shorteners:

Well to start no one really cares about your cat but more importantly you aren’t trying to market your cat. However, if you’re a business that is trying to market something via social networks for the love of god don’t post once and have it go to all your social media at the same time.
