Four new Social Media Marketing Articles

I have three more in draft stages, so don’t be surprised when I post even MORE links to articles on this topic.

I find that I really enjoy writing articles about things I do professionally, plus in the future it will be a good way to show that I know what I’m doing in my field. For now, they are great fun to write, easy to research, and get a lot of page views!

  • When Twitter lists came out, I wrote two quick articles – how to set one up, and what businesses can use them for.
  • THEN when Twitter hooked up with LinkedIn status updates, I added a new article about the 2 social media sites and why this deal matters.
  • Then, I realized I’d never finished my business best practices article about Twitter, and I knocked that out as well.

I have a few more in the works, including one on time management and getting social media work down to a few minutes a day.

Social Media Marketing Buzz: Facebook Lite

Ok, so every now and then I remember that I’m trying to establish myself in this ever-growing field as a social media marketer and someone in the know. So, in addition to plugging away on the 9-5 job, writing examiner articles, and Suite 101 articles, I still find time to learn more about my career.

Today, I did a little investigation into changes at Facebook. Particularly the newly released Facebook Lite. I first did a compare and contrast between the “regular” Facebook and the Lite version. Verdict – I’ll stick with the regular. I HATE that I can’t post links!

Then, because Jim Ellis uses Facebook Fan pages to reach new people, I started thinking about the implications of Facebook Lite for businesses. Whoa, not good!

So, I wrote articles about them for Suite 101. (I’m only 9 articles away from article #100, by the way. So that New Year’s Resolution to post 101 articles by the end of 2009 is certainly on target!)

October 9, 2009 update – I ended up writing two more articles about Facebook for Suite 101!
