13 Minutes A Day On Linkedin!


I want to challenge you to spend 13 minutes a day on Linkedin.  Alot of times I get complaints that Linkedin doesn't work.  I always ask one question back.  When was the last time that you were on Linkedin.  I was surprised to hear, "1 year, 6 months or haven't been back on Linkedin since I set up my profile". Not sure how anyone expect to have results if they are never on.

So here is my 13 minutes  a day on Linkedin.

A.  (2 min)  View - who’s looking at your profile.

B.  (4 min)  Connect -Send some messages to connect. Make them custom to your  target Market

C.  (3 min)  CheckTabs - Home, My Network, Jobs, Messaging  and Notifications. You don't want to miss anything.

D  (4 min) Accepting  - Accept invitations that make sense.  Create your own rules around who you will connect with.  I shared mine in the video. 

If you do this 13 minutes a day, 5 days a week you will have results.

Do You Have A Successful Facebook Business Page?


I spend a lot of time working on different facebook business pages, and some are and instant success and some need work.  So today I want to walk you through a few things that will make your FB page successful.

1. First impressions are everything!  Think about it when you go to a business event you would not go with your hair not combed.  Or you would go with holes in your pants.  You would put your best look forward.  It's the same with your facebook business page so you want to put your best look forward.  

2. Craft a great looking cover photo.  You don't know how many times I go to different pages that don't have a cover photo at.  Get creative and put one up or hire someone to design one.  

3. Make sure your "About" section is complete.  Take advantage of this section by completing all the informations about yourself.  Including some clickable links that you can insert.

It's all about the sound quality!


The truth is no one will watch a video with poor sound quality. Bad sound quality is worse than bad image quality.  So here are my top 4 tips to recording a video with good quality sound. 

  1.  Invest in a decent microphone.  I recommend a PowerDeWise mic.  You can get it for under $23 on Amazon.
  2. Position the microphone correctly.  It's important not to have the mic too far away or too close.
  3. Minimize background noise.  Don't record a video in a construction zone or where someone is playing loud music.
  4. Speak clearly. The best way to speak clear is to slow down. 

So I hope these tips help you and if there is anything I can do to help you make better videos let me know.
