Want to See ALL of Your Facebook Newsfeed?

Earlier today I stumbled across a conversation on Facebook where one person was complaining that they could not see all of their friends posts on Facebook again and that they are continuously having to go to settings to tell Facebook to show ALL of their friends, not the top posts. Well, low and behold then someone came along and shared a link that we can all click on and see every post that your friends posted in a timely manner.

You can thank me later, (In my Drake voice).

F-3 Solutions

f3websitePolitical Strategists, Chad Proudlock and Matthew Ward reached out to the team at Syl Wilson Marketing to design a website that would display their creative work online, a logo for their new business (F-3 Solutions) and social media pages. This site is responsive and has features built in that allow for motion using video. The homepage has a video affect that is viewable on computers. Chad and Matt needed their website in a tight timeframe and Syl Wilson Marketing delivered with quick turnaround and incredible results. The logo was requested to resemble one of the scientific elements without being obvious. The social media needed to have maximum results in a short time frame due to press releases being pushed out fast. Additionally, Syl Wilson designed a website for a SuperPac that they requested called Stronger Together NYC. Both projects were delivered in short time frame with excellent designs.

Be Careful What You Post…The Internet Is Forever

I have said it time and time again…Be careful and mindful of what you are posting online as it will come back to bite you in the you know what! I have been hearing several horror stories lately of youngsters who have posted less than flattering photos of themselves or pictures of themselves with alcohol while underage and losing scholarships to college. I shake my head at the carelessness that is given when people click the “publish” or “update” button.

I was caused to pause today when someone shared a story that is not new news, but just reminds me that I need to continually encourage people young and mature that the internet is like a diary with all of your secrets and if it falls into the hands of the wrong person…it can be spread within a few seconds just from one person clicking the “share” button. The latest story I heard about was about a gal named “Vodka Samm” who made the unfortunate mistake of living recklessly in college by Continue reading

Morning Cup of…Facebook?

I got to wondering today. “What’s the first thing normal people do in the morning?” I mean..for me, it’s wake up, log into Facebook and see if I have any messages, then see what everyone else is chatting about (there could be some happening news ya know), then check to see if my fan page has any questions or leads. After that I hit up Twitter…This process lasts for about the first half hour of my morning before I ever leave the house. So I started to wonder…Am I the Continue reading

Taking a roll of the dice with social media for business

I have been off the scene for awhile as far as blogging goes, but that is a good thing for me, it means that I have been a busy bee. What I would like to do is share more life experiences with you as I have learned quite a bit about the corporate and private business regarding social media marketing. Have you ever wondered why a particular business isn’t on Facebook? How about Twitter? Well, over the last few months, I have been helping small businesses and a few large ones understand the value of social media and how it can improve their bottom line. The results have been very interesting to say the least.

Case Study #1

Small Business starting off. Wants to get brand recognition and thinks they can do it via email blasts in one of those “Free” services. (I know…this one drove me nuts).

When the president of this company asked me how I could help him with his email blasts, I asked him what he currently is doing. He had subscribed to a free service that allowed him to send email blasts, but only a few at a time. He wanted to know what I thought about paying a service to send his email blasts. First question I had for him was “What’s your website look like?” He had one, but it too was with one of the “Free Services” that offer template style websites. All of this is fine, but when you want to get the word out to the masses and appear to be a viable company, you have to Continue reading

Diary of an addicted Facebooker and Tweeter

Every now and then it’s fun to post something rather hokey…so I am going to post one of the reasons that makes it fun for us to market using Twitter, Facebook, and other social networking sites. Enjoy!

Dear Diary,

I woke up and saw I had two new tweets. @holyroller wants to know if I am single and @mydadspants asked me if I could hang out this weekend…I have no idea who these people are, but I knew I had to Continue reading

Why privacy on the internet is laughable

People keep talking about you can protect yourself online if you delete certain profile pages on these free online public data searches. Well, that’s just laughable to me. The only way to protect yourself is to Continue reading

You’ve got mail, email that is..and there’s a video in it!

Think about this, you have a business and it needs to be marketed to a target audience. It’s quite difficult to explain the benefits and features of your product without sending a 25 page brochure in the mail or getting the prospect to have a 30 minute meeting with you. These things are hard to do in today’s world of limited time. However, everyone has an email account and the more data you can get to a person in a short time frame the better right?

My mouth has been taped shut on Twitter..

I find myself getting questioned about many of my tweets and status updates on Twitter and Facebook lately. Social networking used to be so much more fun when you could make a joke and people would laugh “LOL” or just comment with fun loving remarks. I will admit, I have always tried to steer clear of anything political or religious only because I believe that is usually a little different in social networking. If you make a statement that most of your “friends or followers” don’t agree with, well you are just setting yourself up for a bunch of criticism. Never mind that whole “Freedom of Speech” thing that we used to love to call America’s finest quality..Just tie me up and tape my mouth closed instead!

But here’s the deal, I think some of my followers, friends, and such, are just taking things I say too literally. I will give you an example. The other day on Facebook I said,  Continue reading
