Due to insisting public demand and from the feedback that people have given to Hootsuite on their dashboard. Hootsuite's designers have updated the dashboard with a new fresh look to improve its usability.

Check out it's newest look as you view the new dashboard design, you can compare its styles by moving back and forth and start updating your own dashboard into its new look.

I have noticed that its now more look like a real social media dashboard/feeds. The images become bigger and wider.

Honest feedback isn't always kind. Watch our design team read some candid messages regarding the old Hootsuite dashboard in this "Mean Tweets" video:

For me this one looks better than before. Anyway, changes in everything doesn't hurt anyone as long as this is for the good. :P

What is Blog?

Let's define first, what is blog?

Blog is an individual web page that represents as your personal website and journal of an individual who updates time to time. It shares own point of view and information about a specific topic. 

Blog is when you fall-out from the high structure. 

So, you're thinking to try blogging or make a blog? 

WHY you should start blogging?

1. Blogging becomes increasingly popular nowadays. There are millions of blogs in the world wide web. 
2. It is the great way to share your thoughts, opinions, informations and simply expressing yourself. 
3. You can possibly make money in blogging.

Thinking that you already knew that. So, let's start BLOGGING! 

There are five main steps that you need to do. Don't be afraid you don't need to code anything, by following the steps. You will be able to create a blog, up and running in 30 minutes or less. 

Step 1 – Choose you blogging platform.
Step 2 – Choose if you want a self-hosted blog or a free blog.
Step 3 – Setup a blog on your OWN domain name and hosting. 
Step 4 – Design/Customize your blog.
Step 5 – Promote your blog in the world.

Step 1 - Choose you blogging platform.

There are lots of blogging platform that you may want to consider, there are Free and not. 

Wordpress is one of the best blogging platforms because it has an approach to create, design and customize it. It is more advanced one. 

Blogger is the second best because of its very user friendly ways to start, and I recommend this for the first timer. 

Tumblr is another free blogging platform and now growing. It's micro blogging type like Twitter is really good, especially if you mostly post more images than text. 

Livejournal is also good and for free.

Actually, there are lots of it on the Internet. You just have to choose which one is best and soothed you. 

Step 2 – self-hosted blog or a free blog.

You have to decide whether it's a self-hosted blog in your own domain, or you will be having a free blog. Okay. I know, now you are getting too confused.

Let me help you... 

FREE blog is great but the downside;

- Your blog URL or blog web address will look ugly. It will be like myblog.wordpress.com, myblog.blogspot.com or myblog.tumblr.com. 

- Your blog is somewhat limited like you can't upload more videos or images, you can't access all free themes, etc.

However, if you have decided to have a self-hosted blog with your own domain.

- You will be able to get your personal domain like myblog.com, .net, .org. 

- You can have an unlimited bandwidth for videos and images. 

Don't worry about the cost of domain and hosting because I have seen more domains and hosting company selling at the lower price, especially if you get a code  that you can use before you purchase one. 

Step 3 – Set-up a blog on your OWN domain name and hosting.

- Come up with a domain name and look for a hosting company. 

- Most of the hosting company had integrated a one-click-install for your blog to be up and running. 

Step 4 – Design/Customize your blog.

Most of the blogs, varies in different niches. Your blog should reflect your niche as well as your personality. They say that "your blog is what you are." 

Step 5 – Promote your blog in the world.

Once you already setup everything and have created your first few blog posts. You can now promote your blog online. Share it with your friends in your social media sites. 

Remember that it's okay to have a few mistakes, especially when you are a newbie. 

Start blogging!

Upon Twitter’s plunge in the internet, people started questioning the efficiency of posting significant information especially for business with only 140 characters to use. However, eventually, Twitter underwent huge improvements and added some features that benefit businesses, which led to becoming one of the most impressive and excellent social media platforms for businesses.

Suddenly, businesses had an epiphany on Twitter’s 140 characters and swamped the site in big numbers. Consequently, this soaring growth in Tweetosphere paved the way for a great need of implementing a set of conventional rules, principles, and guidelines on the scope and limitations of what businesses could carry out in Twitter.

In an interesting manner, many social media specialists usually talk about the things that can be done on Twitter, but they forgot to focus also on the relevant things that shouldn’t be done on Twitter. Gladly, I am going share the things that you must avoid doing on Twitter.

• Too Much Tweeting or Re-Tweeting – I discovered that some businesses are 
guilty of over-tweeting/re-tweeting. They tweet excessively and what’s worse is that their tweets are repetitious. This is really bothersome to find that the same tweets are appearing in my feed every night before I sleep and they come out again the next morning. The intention is to be wise on the frequency of tweets and the content of tweets.

• Follow Everybody with an Account – Sometimes, businesses forget the very 
important fact that Twitter is an efficient tool for their business IF they know 
who their target audiences are. You follow people with hopes to follow you back and gain additional followers- it doesn’t work that way, and it won’t help your business. Instead, purposefully follow the ones who would associate with your business. Moreover, keep in mind that automatic follows (auto follow) can only give you additional number of followers but it cannot guarantee the quality which is why you should make certain that you consider your choices prior to turning the follow button on.

• Blackguarding – Employing foul, obscene, or offensive tweets can only get your business in the worst scenario. You must keep your self-regard on 
Twitter. Always be attentive of the language you use and respect everyone. 
Keep in mind that you are dealing with human beings who can feel so it is very essential to avoid hurting their sentiments. The golden rule here – “tweet others the way you would like to be tweeted”.

• Incomplete or Imprecise Profile – Most users do not follow Twitter accounts 
whose profiles have not been completed or who give dis-informing information on their profiles. Majority of users only get associated with real businesses which are guileless when it comes to their practice. Be sure to put in your profile all the necessary information and never provide any incorrect details.

• Jactitation – Whereas Twitter is a tool for the promotion of businesses as 
well as its related products, it is not advisable to tweet blatant sales talk to be recognized and patronized. Do not praise and boast yourself or your business excessively. Practice a balanced approach at all times.

• Personal Conversations – Refrain from having any kind of personal 
conversations on Twitter if you are a business person. There is no point in living them futile information overload as they are not most likely to get interested about it anyway.

• Tweeting Rarely – As it is important to avoid excessive tweeting, it is also 
equally relevant to avoid posting once in a blue moon. Make sure that you tweet frequent enough as long as you make sure that you have quality information to share. This will help secure your followers’ interest in being associated with you.

Avoiding these practices in Twitter would not only create a more harmonious 
environment within the micro-blogging sphere, but would also help your business attain a more professional recognition among your followers.

With the advent and boom of social media, business enterprises also saw it as an opportunity to establish brand awareness and connect with their customers on a personal level. Today, businesses are utilizing social media to engage with their clients like never before. But with thousands to millions of messages sent every single day, how business could manage all their social media accounts effectively?

That’s why HootSuite can come very handy. Instead of opening each social media account, sharing passwords, and spending countless of hours tracking individual social media effort and activity, HootSuite allows you to effectively and conveniently manage, collaborate, and execute social media campaigns across different platforms from a SINGLE and SECURED web-based dashboard.

To help you get familiar with this awesome social media management tool, here’s a quick rundown.

Setting Up Your Dashboard

  • Adding Social Networks – As mentioned earlier, the big question here is how do you seamlessly manage all your social media profiles effectively? Well, the answer is provided by HootSuite as it can help you import your social media profiles and access all of them from a neat-looking and centralized dashboard. If you want to add a social media account, simply go to the “Streams” section, then click “Add Social Network”, select what type of account you’d like to add, and then simply put your username-password combination and you’re all set.

    In addition, you don’t have to connect that profile again in the future. What’s more interesting is that you can actually add multiple social media profiles (same social media network) to your dashboard! This can be very beneficial if you are concentrating on a single social media platform like for instance, Twitter campaign only.   

  • Adding Tabs – In HootSuite, the easiest way to organize all your accounts is by using tabs. As much as possible, think of your dashboard as a filing cabinet where each tab is your file folder. The good thing about tabs is that you can also use them to group and organize social media content you want to manage or monitor. This implies that tabs are not restricted for managing social media accounts only.

    There are many ways to organize your tabs. By default, your social media networks are organized as tabs but you can fully customize them whenever you desire. For instance if you are a social media agency, you can designate tabs as your clients so you would know exactly what is going on with their social media accounts. Given this feature, you can also assign tabs to monitor what your competitors are up to.

    To create/add a new tab, simply click the “+” button at the end of your tabs list and type in your desired name for that tab. In order to remain organized, you can edit or rename the tab by simply double clicking it. In addition, you can drag and move them if you want to group them with others. Needless to say, tabs give you the power to manage and organize all your accounts and content in a very convenient way.    

  • Adding Streams – Apart from monitoring accounts and activities, how do you streamline the information flow of your networks? Use streams to organize and monitor the incoming content! Actually, streams will maximize your ability to monitor in HootSuite.

    Simple click the “Add a Stream” button in your dashboard, choose your desired social media platform, and select your profile. In a single tab or profile, you can add up to 10 streams such as (for Twitter) Home Feeds, Sent Tweets, Mentions, etc. What’s good in HootSuite is that you can have multiple social media profile stream under a single tab! On top of that, you can customize these streams in a way that is optimal for you.

  • Navigating Your User Profile – If you want to change any information in your profile, or you have changed your social media network password and need to re-authenticate with HootSuite again, or you want to add a team member, just work around your “Member Overview” page as this is your central hub. In this page, you can view/edit your profile, the organization you belong to, as well as all the social networks you own.

  • Exploring HootSuite Organization – If your business organization is expanding or you are already a member of a large company, you are most likely to collaborate with other people internally to accomplish social media goals. In HootSuite Organization, you can add people, assign them into teams, and even customize their access levels. In addition, you can easily see and manage all your created teams/departments, their team members, as well as social profiles.

HootSuite is a preferred and certified partner of prominent social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and LinkedIn. Because of its amazing, convenient, and customizable features, HootSuite is the most used social relationship platform today. Since 2008, HootSuite recorded an increasing user database of more than 9 million in over 175 countries worldwide. Needless to say, HootSuite is best social media management tool in the market to date, and if you want to make the most of this tool, working around your way in dashboard is definitely a good head start.

.... continuation from Social Media for Small Business: A Beginner’s Guide Part 2

6: Capitalize Social Advertising

If you are yearning for a boosted social media performance, you could always check out paid advertising options.

Facebook offers heaps of advertising solutions to help businesses earn more brand exposure, website traffic, audience engagement, and ultimately, sales.

If Twitter is your main social media channel, you have to choose from two advertising solutions, namely: promoted accounts and promoted content. The former helps you increase the magnitude of your Twitter following, while the latter helps your content stand out and to serve your content to tailored audiences.

In LinkedIn, you can utilize the “sponsored updates” feature or you can purchase advertising to boost the visibility of your brand.

Even though your budget is small, you should not miss the opportunity and benefits of using social advertising. Always keep in mind that it can yield great results if used tactically.

7: Measure and Analyze Results

This is the last yet the most crucial step.

It is important to track your performance data to recognize which strategies are working and which are not. Furthermore, don’t also miss seeing your development, participation, and sharing.

The good thing is that most social networks today have tools to track and assess your performance.

For your blog and website, Google Analytics is a handy tool to monitor traffic and interactions. With this tool, you can know which social media platforms are actually driving the most traffic into your website.

Tips to having a great social media plan:

  • Regularly review your metric reports (preferably at least once a week)
  • Evaluate the big picture (quarterly)
  • Make the necessary adjustments for anything that doesn’t yield satisfactory results.

When utilizing different social media channels for your startup or small business, the most significant thing to keep in mind is that social media, as a whole, is a long and arduous undertaking.

Use this social media guide as your reference in starting your own social marketing efforts. Clearly define your target audience first, and select the best platform to reach them. Always do your research, and incorporate your social media links and icons into your website. Actively participate in social activities and keep track of how things are going. Follow these steps and you are definitely set for success!

3: Start Humbly

After determining your target audience, knowing where to effectively reach them, and optimizing your website for your social media channels, it is time for you to get social.

Keep in mind: get started today, but start humbly!

Social media necessitates a lot of time energy, which for small businesses, are valuable resources. So, always start with a doable load. As much as possible, choose a single or two social media channels to start with.

The best way to ensure consistency is to integrate social media tasks into your everyday routine. Make sure to dedicate sufficient time to reasonably deal with your social media accounts. As much as possible, update or manage them twice a day.

In your first two months, spend a minimum of 15 to 30 minutes a day on social activities. However, you can always increase the time whenever you see fit.

When sharing content, use your customer profiles to find out what information is relevant to your target customers who use that particular social network. For instance, your shared information in Twitter must be different from LinkedIn.

The key objective of your content is to help a specific group of readers. Give them easy-to-follow and valuable tips, or share information that can help them unravel a problem. Over time, people (or your followers) will view you as an expert and thought-leader in your industry.

4: Pay Attention and Be Involved

Conversations in social media are taking place all around in real time.

Hence, “social listening” is actually a very good maneuver to keep an eye on people’s thoughts about your business. Pay attention to and respond to comments even they’re negative.

Content is the most important thing in social marketing. Regrettably, searching the internet for good content that are worthy of sharing can be really time-consuming. To avoid getting stuck along the way, arrange a process where you can organize and combine quality content that gives value to your audience. If your schedule permits you, add the content to your editorial calendar so you can instantly share it when you are ready.

5: Have a Daily Plan

Once you have a stable stream of content in your pipeline, you are set to post and participate in social media.

Create a list of activities you plan to carry out every day. For instance, tweet and retweet 2-4 times on Twitter, comment on five different Facebook pages, or pin/re-pin around 5 images in Pinterest every day. If you are using LinkedIn, you could share a link and like other user’s links.

Once these daily activities are included in your “comfort zone”, then you can advance your efforts by joining groups and communities in order to direct specific demographics. Start and engage in conversations by throwing thought-provoking questions and/or posting comments to other people’s posts.

In addition, always welcome your new followers and don’t forget to thank those who share your content voluntarily.

Most importantly, be deliberate about your daily social activities. Contrary to popular belief, success is not about chance; rather, it is mainly about tactics and strategy. 

Check out the steps six to seven on how to make social media marketing work for your small business: a beginners guide part 3.

Are you ready to get in touch with a broader audience?

Do you want to be acquainted with the best ways to control social media for your small business?

If your answer is YES to both of these questions, then thoroughly browse this article as it will show you the first two steps on how to make social media marketing work for your small business.

Why Use Social Media?

As an owner of a startup or small business, you know by now that there’s a lot of stuff that need to be done with only limited resources.

Although conventional marketing still works today, it will absolutely drain your monetary funds.

On the other hand, social media marketing is reasonably low-cost, and provides you a straight and easy access to your existing and prospective customers. Though, there’s a trade-off because what you save in money, you will invest in time.

Needless to say, you need to be extra smart in handling these resources if you truly want to obtain the results you desire given your limited resources.

This step-by-step guide is for new and small business owners with a handful of resources, but who want to start and work up their brand using social media.

1: Do Your Assignment

Always keep in mind that behind every successful social media campaign, there’s a prudent strategy.

Social media is about connecting with your audience on a more personal level. In order to do this, you have to understand your existing and prospective customers very well.

You can start by clearly defining your target audience. Categorize and profile your customers by gender, age, profession, interests, etc. Write down all these details and attach the most suitable images that represent them.

Next, straighten out your message. Determine the “pain points” that each of your customer profile is experiencing. After this, create your message based on their concerns and key problems, and then position your business as the one that can provide solutions.

Now that you’ve determined your audience and crafted your brand message to them, the next thing you should do is to discover which social networks they prefer.

All social networking platforms are not created equal. Each of them has their own primary audience, pace, and emphasis. It is very important to understand these differences so you could spend your resources on the right platforms.

2: Organize Your Social Media Channels

Your success will be limited if you regard social media channels as not connected with each other. Therefore, all your chosen network should work closely together to facilitate goal achievement.

Because of the fact that your website is the home base of your brand, it would be heady to organize all your social media efforts to push people into your website where they browse your offered service or product.

Apart from different social networks, you could also utilize your blog to share industry-related information using your brand’s voice. Blogs are also a great means to engage with your website visitors, and subsequently lead them into your sales funnel.

You can optimize your blog and your website for social media by adding few design elements such as social media icons. Just make sure that they are visible enough and are working properly. Surely, you don’t want your visitors get irritated just because they aren’t redirected to your social media profiles after clicking the icons.

Moreover, include call-to-actions (CTAs) in your blog posts and don’t forget to ask your readers to follow, subscribe, or like your social media profiles if they’ve found your content valuable and worthy of reading. In addition, make certain that all your content are share-friendly so your readers can easily spread the good word about your business. 

Check out the steps three to five on how to make social media marketing work for your small business: a beginners guide part 2.

Being receptive to listening to someone else's perspective is highly valued which makes both parties’ relationship more efficient, profitable and lasting. To better improve this, here are a couple of advices that will help you build a better relationship with your seo provider.
Be Honest - Be honest about what was done. It's unusual to find someone who hasn't performed few questionable marketing once. A great client explains what they've done so their provider can figure out how to fix and deal with it faster.
Don't Blame Links When Something Goes Wrong - Don't blame links if your SEO service provider has built one for you and you end-up messing up their robots.txt file.
Sudden URL Changes - Don't change URLs without informing your SEO service provider on this matter. If you've given some targets to work with and they suddenly 404ed, that's embarrassing. Webmasters get cranky when you have to go back requesting for a change.
Share Access to Webmaster Tools, Social Media Networking sites and Analytics - If your SEO provider doesn't know what's happening, it's difficult to complete a good job. It's significantly easier if they can start immediately instead of waiting for you to come back from your week long getaway.
Answer Questions - Answering questions doesn’t mean being nosey. SEO’s asks because it affects their work.
Listen to Risk Advices - If your provider says that your linking structure is risky, it probably is. A good company won’t risk its reputation just for money.
Don't Share Someone Else's Confidential Information - It’s just plain etiquette. Clearly, you don’t want your trade secret being leaked.
Say what you really want - Don't start out asking for services and then make your provider run all around and eventually admit that you want something totally different. Get straight to the point to avoid spending valuable time.
Ask Why a Service Costs and how it works - It's best to explain pricing now than receive complaints about it later.
Be reasonable regarding Client Examples - Don't panic when your service provider can't provide examples you prefer when you're deciding if they're the ideal fit. Iron-clad nondisclosure agreements exist for a reason.
If your provider is unable to present you client examples but are willing to work for you under the condition of a refund if you're not satisfied, either accept that offer or move on instead of sending rude emails about lack of professionalism.
Master Link Builders Knows More Than Just Building Links - If you're asked to promote your new content socially to gather attention, take that advice. Don't just think that because you can't connect social to links instantly, it implies that the advice is ineffective.
Don't Focus and compare What Your Competitors Are Doing - Don't constantly suggest what your competitor is doing that breaches Google's guidelines and ask your SEO's why they don't mirror it. That’s black hat and a no-no!
To begin with, your site isn't the same as their site. What's more, if you build a copied profile, you’re violating the rules and regulations of Google, and that's not a good thing.
Do not do unto others what you don't want them do unto you.
Don't always ask service for free - I doubt you'd find a decent SEO who gives way too much freebies. If you did find one, be suspicious!
If you're paying them for their expertise, then acknowledge that relationship. Understand that most SEO marketing companies really wish to accomplish an excellent job for you. The more they know, the better they can perform.

May this humblebraggin ends or should I say may rest in peace for this year. You know what I mean.

2. Foodporning

Stop foodporning. We all know that people eat at all time, 3 times a day or more. Set a benchmark for this and stick to it. If the food that you are eating is really rare and unique then that's the time you post it.

3. Know Your Privacy

Manage your privacy setting. Pick things you can share publicly. Learn to know-how.

4. Posting Selfies

It was declared that the year of 2013  was the "The year of selfie". I suggest that this year will be diffirent one.

5. Create Positivity

Posting positive can help someone to change their mood or even life. Expressing what's on your mind with less annoyances is really great.

Sometimes giving misinformation from major event are reportedly and first seen on social media sites. I think before we make a retweet or share it, we should double check the information because it can be frightening and dangerous. Also, always be kind when taking comments on a photo or status by someone and if you have nothing good to say, just ignore it and increase kindness online.
