  • The Biggest Mistakes To Avoid On Craigslist

    Craigslist  

    Oct 20 2009

    Spelling – check it twice. Check your spelling twice, especially in the title. Did I mention spelling? I came across this posting tonight and had to share it.  If you are going to post an obnoxious Craigslist title (that gets more eyes), make sure you are spelling all your words correctly – or it makes you look like a MORON (and people will be afraid of you):  (what is “MOST SELL” anyway? – Oh, MUST […]

    Oct 20 2009

    As I was searching online for some information to one of my favorite Mexican food joints here in Arizona I ran across several problems with their website and wanted to share them here.  I also came across several areas where I thought they could capitalize on social marketing, increase traffic to their website and interact better (online) with the people who love them.

  • Don't Be The Community Moron

    Social Marketing  

    Oct 13 2009

    I was checking out some Yelp listings this morning, and come across something that made me wanna rant for just a bit. If you are going to participate in communities like Yelp, and leave your two cents (or reviews in the case of Yelp), then why not FULLY PARTICIPATE?  People are not going to give what you say a second thought if you are doing anything like Paul B. here: In my opinion reviews like […]

The tweet I sent was clearly marked as an ad. I made $9.95 for the click (the advertiser paid roughly double that amount). Not bad. But what I liked more is that the advertiser went to my site and […]
