Where have I been?!?! Finally a video update to start getting back on the wagon! Its good I have been busy with doing business but videos need to be part of my routine and really a part of most online marketing efforts, so get back on the wagon if your like me!
In the social Media world Twitter is a big thing! But should you be on Twitter?
This will all depend on your target market. Who else in your area is on Twitter, and how do you connect with these people. If you are in my area in the Northwest Suburbs of the Twin Cities Twitter is great for getting your content out if you have a blog and use Facebook. It really depends on where you are and what you are doing.
You can spend (waste) a lot of time on Social Media sites if you don't have a plan going into on what you are going to post and how many people you are going to interact with. You should be able to spend 15 minutes a day on Facebook and accomplish what you want. Twitter can take 15 minutes as well and maybe up to 30 minutes if you are really focusing on interacting. That may seem like a lot of time but if thats part of your business generating plan

This video was originally done mostly for a real estate audience, but its true for any audience...Video blogging can be easier for a lot of people who don't like writing. You just need ideas. Keep a note pad with you and write down the ideas that come to mind. When you have a couple minutes, turn the camera on and share them. Video blogging can be as easy as that! More info in the video!
