So, do yourself a favor and watch this week's "If I had a Nickel" discussion to learn:* How to measure your site's performance* How your hosting affects site performance* What plugins are must-haves* What to look for in a plugin and a host* What to absolutely stay away from========OUR FEATURED EXPERT========Meet +MaAnna Stephenson :MaAnna is a geek who can still speak in plain English and helps solopreneurs, small businesses, and non-geeks create sites that gets noticed by search engines and readers.

Ryan Hanley11,577How to Become a Thought-Leaderand think for yourself in the digital echo chamber.This week Content Warfare TV has the pleasure of hosting +Mark Schaefer, author, speaker, consultant and founder of the Businesses Grow blog (one of my personal favorites).I have a tremendous amount of respect for Mark. There are three reasons I hold him in such high regard:1) He's genuine and funny and the same way offline as he comes across online.2) He thinks for himself.

When Kristin learned that farmers and co-ops all over the country were increasingly getting raided by the government, she set out to  make a film about it. She hopes that when people see it, it can change the tide of public pressure so that our government stops harassing and adding costly burdens to our small, organic farmers.

Ray Hiltz23,765How is Google Authorship relevant to your business?Google Authorship has been around since 2011 and while more and more people and brands have implemented “rel=author”, there is still a lot of confusion as to what exactly it accomplishes.Some think that it improves search results, others install it for the reported improvement in Click Through Rates (CTRs) by having your face appear on SERPs. Some because they hear it will improve their SERP ranking.To tell us the benefits of authorship and dispel some of the myths, the #GPlusLunchBunch  is very excited to have the authority on Authorship and all round nice guy +Mark Traphagen join us at our virtual lunch table.Mark is the Senior Director of Online Marketing at +Stone Temple Consulting.He is a prolific content creator and my chief source of information relating to online authority.He’s generous with his knowledge and time as is demonstrated by his many appearances on HOAs.If you have questions about authorship and want to know more, join us around the table. However, you’ll have to bring your own lunch (east coast), breakfast (west coast), dinner (UK).Recommended viewing: Mark’s SlideShare: Author Authority for Advanced Search Marketershttp://goo.gl/whr30CThis is a Google+ Tips & Topics Community presentation.

Captive Touch131If your work requires you to come up with new ideas, you know that setting aside  "quiet time" is essential  In a lecture on Creativity, John Cleese outlines five basic elements required for being creative:1-Space (“You can’t become playful, and therefore creative, if you’re under your usual pressures.”)2- Time (“It’s not enough to create space; you have to create your space for a specific period of time.”)3- Time (“Giving your mind as long as possible to come up with something original,” and learning to tolerate the discomfort of pondering time and indecision.)4- Confidence (“Nothing will stop you being creative so effectively as the fear of making a mistake.”)5- Humor (“The main evolutionary significance of humor is that it gets us from the closed mode to the open mode quicker than anything else.”)Yes, this is all nice, but what if you don't have the luxury of having a creating space or time?  This predicament describes my life really well:1- I teach college-level biology part time2- I teach college-level marketing via social media part time3- I run a business4- I am a very involved parent5- I don't normally work on the weekends Some of you who know me are aware of the fact that coming up with new marketing and teaching ideas, and testing them, is pretty much what I do all the time.  Today I want to share how I manage to be so busy and creative at the same time.  Please join us and share how you incorporate creativity in your busy life.  We normally continue the discussion after the show in the #take5hoacommunity  .  Please join us!https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/111145432826284756229How to be creative when you don't have the luxury of time: by Sherry Nouraini2014-06-23 21:00:0018G+

Ray Hiltz23,765It’s hammered into your head from the very first day you start marketing your business; know your ideal client.But does your ideal client know you?It’s all well and good to “personify” your perfect customer, but that customer first needs to find you before knowing you.Otherwise you stand as much chance making a connection as the editor of the school paper hooking up with the Prom Queen.(Achem, not that I’d know first hand, of course)I’ve seen a lot of content recently bemoaning that not only are we drowning in content, but the big guys who moved onto the social block are the ones holding our heads under the water.Big brands consistently hold the top places in Google search results.“Brands Have More Fun - SearchMetrics continued to see recognized brands having an advantage at getting the top one or two positions, but the brand effect drops quickly after that. It is therefore imperative that companies seek to become known and talked about as a brand, as that could lead eventually to Google recognizing them as such.” - +Mark Traphagen, Up Close @SMX Advanced: The Periodic Table Of SEO Elements : http://goo.gl/7Ae6CgBut how do smaller companies, let alone freelancers become “known and talked about as a brand” when there’s so much competition?It was said in the early days that social media levelled the playing field. Yeah, and once upon a time, the Olympics featured only amateur athletes. Independent bloggers are a going the way of vinyl records (Marketing Companion Podcast: The Invisible Blogger - http://goo.gl/9ASQLM ).Multi author sites are content sweatshops.When it’s all about the content, what becomes of the author, the brand behind the content?On today’s show the #GPlusLunchBunch asks: How Do You Get Found if No One's Looking For You?This is a Google+ Tips & Topics Community presentation.

Today’s hectic pace demands that sales professionals rethink their strategies and practices. They must attract, teach, convert, serve, and measure while developing an individual brand that stands for trust and expertise.Now the popular author of Duct Tape Marketing teaches sales professionals how to apply the tactics of traditional marketing to their daily work. In Duct Tape Selling, salespeople will learn how to develop a marketing-based system to dramatically increase their effectiveness, stand above their competitors, and add value to their customer relationships.Jantsch flips the traditional business model—where marketers owned the message while sellers owned the relationships—on its head. These days, he argues, marketers must get better at relationships and sales must perfect the message and delivery."Find out more here: http://ducttapeselling.com/Sound good?

Phil Bowyer8,229How many times do you read or hear “Subscribe to my newsletter”? Think about all of those blog posts who interrupt you mid-sentence with a lightbox that begs for your email address.  How often do you actually comply with their request? Of those newsletters you subscribe to, how many do you actually open and read? How many are currently sitting in your inbox, patiently waiting for your undivided attention?I get a lot of crazy looks when people discover there’s no big red button on my site, and in fact I am not building an email list. “You have to do have a list” they tell me, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Experts tell us to build a list, but as entrepreneurs we don’t stop and look at whether an email list will help our business, or do it harm.  This week +Kate Bowyer,  author of “How I Quit eMail & Followed My Dreams” , will join me to discuss her experience with email newsletters, both as entrepreneur, and as the owner of an overactive inbox. We’ll explore reasons why pushing your email newsletter might actually be preventing sales, and we’ll share some alternative ideas that not only make your life easier, but actually compel your community to enter your sales funnel a lot sooner. You Don’t Win If You Don’t WatchAll LIVE viewers will have the chance to win a digital copy of Kate’s upcoming book “How I Quit eMail & Followed My Dreams” .  PROGRAMMING NOTEThis week’s show will be on Friday, and in the early evening.There’s Gonna Be Some SparkleA big THANK YOU to +Jessica Dewell who generously agreed to produce this week’s Rule Breaking Ideas show.  I really love her style, and I’m excited to have her on board to help bring out the sparkle of the show. About Rule Breaking IdeasRule Breaking Ideas airs every week at 1PM MT / 3PM ET / 12PM PT on Google+, YouTube, PhilBowyer.com, and various asylums around the globe.

Jess + Scott + You264After talking about Superheroes all have help (http://goo.gl/jtys77) and positioning your Superpower skills for people to find you (http://goo.gl/FskNDK), we are going to wrap up this series with how unleash YOU into the world with a team supporting you.Teams bring resources, energy, passion, and skills to the table. How do we even begin to start looking at the power of team? Elements we know about: Time to develop, passion about the ideas, and alignment of paths for the project(s).Small businesses with one or two people have a different set of ideas that directly affect the nature of working relationships. How much do our skills in team building and leadership matter? Does having a team change the nature of the work we do, or are we doing more of the same thing?Joining us to talk about Superhero team building:+Nora Whalen  Co-Founder of Jess & Nora’s Infusion Principle, Founder/CEO of Nora Whalen International, a Life and Business Coach coaching business owners and success seekers around the world, co-founder of Women for Change Coaching Community, co-host of The Career Coach SIG, , Co-author of How to Break the Glass Ceiling Without a Hammer: Career Strategies for Women  and Co-author of the upcoming book: You’ve Got This!+Pamela Barroway Works in corporate and nonprofit, and with small businesses with nearly 20 years of marketing communications experience has shown me one simple truth: Whether the material is for web, video, email or print – clear, engaging content generates powerful connections with one’s audiences.  Editing and copywriting are the path through which to hone any project and attain this goal. That’s my passion, and why I’m here! +Holly Kile  is committed entrepreneurs have passion for their business but often lack the technical expertise , tools, or resources to fully execute their vision. Unfortunately, getting just the right person to do this, that, and the other can be a frustrating process (not to mention expensive). Experienced entrepreneur, medical practice administrator, corporate trainer, revenue consultant, and executive virtual assistant/online business manager, Holly draws on her own expertise to co-create multi-faceted business foundations and programs with visionary entrepreneurs. YOUSuperheroes Unite2014-05-28 04:15:0081G+
Ray Hiltz23,765What's Your Summer Social Strategy?Victoria Day  and Memorial Day weekends are the unofficial launches into summer for many of us.In Canada, when I was much younger, we referred to Victoria Day weekend as “May 2-4", which both represented the date(ish) and the size of a case of beer we’d take up to the cottage.It was our reward for suffering through another Canadian winter.So, it’s not a big surprise that we’d want to slow down come summer and enjoy some “rays”.That was the old days before we were connected 24/7, when summer meant a month at the cottage without a telephone.Businesses don’t close for the summer, in North America at least, so is it smart to pull back on our digital marketing?Content calendars still need to be filled, twitter and other social channels need to be monitored.Is summer just more of the same old, same old?Or does it represent a special opportunity to….?This week, the #GPlusLunchBunch will share their views on summer social strategies.Will you be working as usual or running to the beach for a game of Beach Blanket Bingo?This is a Google+ Tips & Topics Community presentation.

Ray Hiltz23,765Does playing on the same platform as giants make us feel like giants or hobbits?This week I’m asking the #GPlusLunchBunch what it means to be on the same playing field as these influencers.Do we search them out?Do they make us reach higher or shake our confidence?Google Plus allows us to circle and interact with anyone else on Google+.Since the majority of our personal friends and family are over at Facebook, most of the people we fill our circles with are contacts from other social networking sites and strangers who share our interests.If you’re using Google+ as part of a SEO and content marketing strategy, you know the importance of developing relationships with influencers. I see 2 kinds of influencers:1. The social signal accelerator,  The person who has a high level of online authority by writing content that gets shared and commented on across multiple platforms. Interaction and shares by this person has a SEO halo effect.2. The thought influencer. This person may or not be all that active on social media but have a presence on Google Plus.  They’re recognized thought leaders because of the content they produce via books, films, lectures or by their prominence in their specific professions.I don’t know of any other platform that allows such proximity and chance to form relationships with influencers as Google Plus. A reason I enjoy Google Plus so much is that I regularly read and interact with people I admire.At times, I feel like a high school saxophone player hanging out at Birdland with Charlie Parker, John Coltrane and Stan Getz. This is a Google+ Tips & Topics Community presentation: http://goo.gl/uJh80aIf you'd like to keep on top of what's happening on Google+, subscribe to my weekly Google+ Tips of the Week Newsletter here:  www.newraycom.com Do You 'Plus' in the Company of Giants?2014-05-20 18:15:0033G+

Mia Voss26,051This week on +The Mia Connect Power Chat, we are going to completely mix it up and talk with Animal Sanctuaries & Rescue Organizations around the country.  +The Wild Animal Sanctuary (right here in Colorado) will join us to talk about their amazing facility and the efforts they are making to care for exotic animals that have been rescued from deplorable situations or were abandoned: TWAS has been rescuing exotic wildlife and endangered species since 1980, and is currently home to more than 290 Lions, Tigers, Bears, Jaguars, Leopards, Mountain Lions, Lynx, Bobcats, Servals, Wolves, and other wildlife. These animals were abandoned, abused, illegally kept, or came from other terrible situations. The vast majority of the animals were so-called “pets” - and were confiscated by law enforcement officials - usually within the first six months of their lives. The sanctuary also provides a permanent refuge to surplus animals from zoos and other wildlife facilities, where they face euthanasia due to over-breedingFounder #KathyNobles  of #GoingHomeAnimalRescue :Going Home partners with small municipal shelters and rescue groups, mainly in rural areas that do not have the resources or adoption pools metropolitan areas do, and transport dogs and some cats to receiving rescues in areas of the country where there is a need for adoptable companion animals. Presently we are partners with about 30 shelters and rescues throughout Oklahoma and the northwestern part of Arkansas. In addition, Going Home arranges 4 to 5 major transports a month to receiving rescues in Colorado, Illinois, and Minnesotahttp://bit.ly/GHART+Leila Martin from +Jim Burwell's Petiquette will also join the panel!

Jess + Scott + You264Somebody always knows their secret and helps them use their powers every day. The people behind the superheroes come in the form of confidants (Batman’s Alfred), mentors (X-Men’s Professor X), or their families (Superman and Incredibles). You are also a superhero.

But is every single alert the same importance and deserve to be an interruption to your core work?Join us as we explore how we can evaluate our tasks and discover where there is a possibility to leverage our talents and desire by finding someone to support us in business (which, just may extend into personal life as well).Two superheroes are joining us as we delve into the power of having help and the benefits to us:+Susan Finch‘s background is primarily in PR/Marketing & Advertising. She has taken a couple of detours: an antique business BEFORE eBay - ahhh, those were the days for pickers to drive, discover, procure, and resell. The HUNT for the TREASURES. And, a fine art gallery in Laguna Beach from 1992-1996. Enough retail and she dove back into PR which led me to the Internet, website design, marketing and tying it all together.

Jess + Scott + You264Humor offers a sure fast way to create a connection. Many of us think that in business, to be taken seriously, we have to check it at the door. What?! Not so fast…In reality, there’s a whole new world of humorous messaging about your or your client’s business that people will love, and love to share. A sense of being too serious may actually create an unintended perception of you and your company.This week, we want to do it all: Promote the use of humor in marketing, breakdown old tired stereotypes and share a few how-to’s.And there is no one better to help us with that than Amy Harrison. She’s thought deeply about humor and copywriting, storytelling and content marketing and in fact was picked from among 3,300 applicants to fly to Austin to speak at this year’s South by Southwest (SXSW) conference. She’s genuinely funny. That’s where we first met Amy via her interview with our very own +Ronnie Bincer (http://bit.ly/1mZMtWy). Her SXSW topic?  “A Funny Taboo: The Art of ROFL! for Business Women”Do yourself a favor and visit the “Harrisonamy: Marketing Your Business with Blogging, Content and Copywritintg” website  http://harrisonamy.com/, and be prepared to spend some quality time there.

Sheila Strover0When a healthy active sportsperson suddenly finds themself literally knocked out of their game, and bundled into an alien world of surgery and rehabilitation conducted in an equally alien language, it can be a devastating experience.

Jess + Scott + You264Mobile Hangouts on Air: No sooner did the dust start to settle ‘round +Ronnie Bincer's SXSW mobile shoots in March than +Jim Shankle restarted the engine and successfully originated over dozen quality interviews for RazorFest’s “Champions for Children” charity event last Friday and Saturday.What’s the big picture and what’s the big deal? And what might this mean for the future of Hangouts on Air?Background: A little more than a year ago, it became clear HOAs could go mobile using cell phone technology, and to prove the point,  Ronnie travelled to Austin’s SXSW as a proof of concept.  http://bit.ly/1jZm8S7 Then this year, with the help of +Jeff Sieh and his Hangout Mastery group, he knocked the ball out of the park with full engagement with the film strip. http://bit.ly/1jZmOa2. Zoom forward a few weeks. Jim and Ronnie, along with help from members of the Hangout Mastery group, produced MHOAs that provide non-profit organizations and sponsors content they can share socially, all for the greater good.

Ray Hiltz23,765There’s been a lot of squawking in the henhouse about +Vic Gundotra's departure from Google and where that leaves Google Plus?The crap hit the fan when TechCrunch published its article: "Google+ is Walking Dead", and it’s been flying since.We’ve had the weekend to compose ourselves so today, the #GPlusLunchBunch  will chat about the departure of the G+ leader and what that means to the “platform”.How do you think Google+ will be changing in the months ahead?+Mark Traphagen wrote a personal analysis of what this change may mean. Quo Vadis Google+? What's Next for Google's Social Network? http://goo.gl/KPZGk5I particularly liked his analogy addressing the comparison of Google+ to the fate of Google Reader:“...to say for now that turning off Google Reader was like removing a sock. Dismantling Google+ would be more like ripping out a person's nervous system.”Today's lunch Bunch show will be a chance for you and our panel to sit and discuss how we feel things will change...or not, with Google+ now that Vic has left and “Bez”, +Dave Besbris is taking over.For further research, there was a great HOA from the guys at +Social Media Hangout  It's the End of Google+ As We Know It....

If you are a member of the SEOWiSE community, you are welcome to be a part of the live audience. Next we will have a 15 - 30 minute interview with someone, exploring their work and how they're using video production and/or hangouts in their business lives.This week will feature:- 00:00 Introduction and sponsorsGuests:You may know +Craig Chamberlin and +Chris Keyworth from the Craig and Chris Show or their Let's Play YouTube videos. Or some of you might know Craig from his tech help series. With over 300 subscribers to the Craig and Chris YouTube channel and how often we see Craig all over Plus you'd think these guys are rakin' in the dough by now right?Aside from a discussion about how much work it has been to even get to where they are on YouTube, we want to talk to Craig and Chris about how and why they got started on YouTube videos in the first place, what sorts of barriers they've run into, and how they see the connection between Plus and the YouTube world (if they even do).BTW these guys are hilarious so you know it's going to be a fun time!Discussion:In the discussion we are going to get down into the nitty gritty and maybe even slightly personal. Creating cash flow from YouTube is a lot harder than it looks and if anyone knows this battle it's Craig and Chris. We're going to have a candid discussion of the struggles we've all gone through trying to make it in the YouTube world and if it's really even worth it.We all talk about the freedom of content production on YouTube but with such a vast amount of content these days, is becoming a YouTube star (Aka having enough subscribers to create cash flow) really a viable option? Or should we just leave it as a hobby and move on?Should be fun, funny, and somewhat insightful when we can all put our serious faces back on ;)Wrap up and start your weekend!Live event link: http://goo.gl/oQeULkSEOWiSE Office Hours - Friday Edition2014-04-25 22:00:0054G+

Jess + Scott + You264Lifelong learning is here to stay. Once we leave a formal education or extended learning program it’s up to us. We all know most of us will change careers at least once during our lifetime (some say 5 to 7 times!). Even if you stay within your chosen field for study, you still have to keep up in order to not fall behind.Watching those in high school and college today, they are preparing for a different world than people found entering the world as young adults even just a few years ago. The idea that we continue to learn is prevalent and encouraged generation to generation...yet it is more necessary today than ever before. And, we believe the learning curve continues throughout our careers - in fact every single day we choose to participate in society today. The attention we put into choosing to increase knowledge (or making the choice not to) is ours. Someone is always watching us, and we are always being a model to others. Knowing that role we carry into our communities can be fun and stimulating and at the same time offer a look into a bigger picture by looking at those that have gone before and those that will be coming.+Terry Leigh Britton  and +Stephanie Sims will join +Jessica Dewell   and +Scott Scowcroft  to define what lifelong learning is, explore why it matters to us today, and how the heck we know we’re learning (versus, just doing).  More about our guests:+Terry Leigh Britton  is an enthusiastic promoter of new educational technologies and approaches, and actively pursues learning. See for yourself by visiting Terry’s active YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/tbritton33) offering tutorials, ideas for Abundance, live compositionconceptual-music,  and Terry’s Tech and Photoshop shows. He’s a guru of learning something - really learning something, and using his ideas to continue exploring, sharing, and most of all - having fun!+Relevance Matters.

Ray Hiltz23,765Should we care less about the technology and more about what it can do for you.Speaking to many consultants who have been on the social media beat for awhile, I can sense their fatigue.They're  running on a hamster wheel keeping up with new platforms, new apps, new tools and at the same time struggling to convince their clients why they should care.Is it time to accept that people aren't interested in how the message is communicated as much as they are on what the message is.The #GPLusLunchBunch  tackles the question, "Are we ready for a post social media world?"This may seem weird since it seems obvious so many just don't "get it". But will they ever?“You didn’t need a telephone strategy when the telephone was invented,”  - productivity coach Philippe le Baron.What do you think?Are we focussed on the wrong word in "social media"?This is a Google+ Tips & Topics Community presentation:http://goo.gl/uJh80aIf you'd like to keep on top of what's happening on Google+, subscribe to my weekly Google+ Tips of the Week Newsletter here: www.newraycom.com Enough with the Social Media, Already!2014-04-15 18:15:5943G+

Jess + Scott + You264What do you want - NOW? A look at what you’re passionate about may be able to help prioritize and focus attention. If we know what we want to achieve, and we choose action carefully what can we achieve?Taking time to think allows us to ask questions. Once we’ve decided what #TheONEThing is for us, the ability to sift through what we do and what we don’t do will offer results. Power of choice meets us many times throughout each day … from the mundane: “Yes I will exercise again today,” to “How can I best spend my time to reenergize,” to “How do I make changes to incorporate volunteering,” and of course, the big questions we have about our business.The ONE Thing is about making decisions. It’s about drawing a line in the sand and saying, “This is what I’m going to do,” and then taking action, and more action, and more action building momentum with each decision and execution of that decision.+Jessica Dewell  and +Scott Scowcroft  will host a panel to discuss “The ONE Thing” by Gary Keller. There are so many take aways, the conversation will get started with this question:How did you (or are you) determining your ONE Thing?Our awesome panel:+Shon Kokoszka is president of MAPS Business Coaching – one of the leading training organizations in the world.

Ray Hiltz23,765+Brendan Tully Walsh tells us why his marketing agency is now a Holacracy.We're very pleased to have Brendan join our  #GPlusLunchBunch table to discuss this controversial organizational structure.Brendan is co founder of +Brendan & Brendan and is a marketing communications consultant with a decade and a half of experience as a national broadcast journalist, writer, public speaker and marcom strategist.He's the recipient of an Edward R. Murrow award and two AP awards for regional political and business coverage.  Holacracy = Distributed AuthorityI first heard of Holacracy when social media reported that Tony Hsieh brought the system to +Zappos Moda The gist of what I was hearing was: "every company needs a boss!""The idea is to structure the company around the work that needs to be done rather than the people who do it." - Tony Hsieh, Zappos."Holacracy is a distributed authority system – a set of “rules of the game” that bake empowerment into the core of the organization.Unlike conventional top-down or progressive bottom-up approaches, it integrates the benefits of both without relying on parental heroic leaders.Everyone becomes a leader of their roles and a follower of others’, processing tensions with real authority and real responsibility, through dynamic governance and transparent operations."Now that's a mouthful. And Brendan is going to help us digest it.Is Holacracy the love child of social & business? Is it easily transposed onto different types of businesses?Stay tuned to this page as I continue to research this very interesting work model.This is a Google+ Tips & Topics Community presentationhttp://goo.gl/uJh80aIf you'd like to keep on top of what's happening on Google+, subscribe to my weekly Google+ Tips of the Week Newsletter here: www.newraycom.com Who's the Boss? - How Does Work Get Done in a Holacracy?2014-04-08 18:15:0037G+

(this is called a beurre manie) place this into the hot stock and mix together.

Ray Hiltz23,765Social, whose business is it, anyway?We’ve had a lot of talk lately on the LunchBunch show about social media marketing.Last week, we spoke with Mark Schaefer about why we were failing social. So what is it about this word that confuses us so much.Is mixing social with business, mixing oil and water?You can call me a “cock-eyed optimist” but I became a social strategist believing social media would bring about a change in business culture.I follow social business thought leaders, +Amber Naslund  and +Matt Ridings  of +SideraWorks  as well as +Michael Brito  of +Edelman and others who share “awesome” content and do amazing work guiding large companies along their social conversion.But down here in the trenches with the foot soldiers,  I’m sensing a retreat as they move to more familiar “marketing” ground.Has the word “social” morphed into something different online?Just as Facebook has diluted the meaning of ”like”, has digital marketing devalued the word “social” to simply to mean a “two-way conversation”?For reference, here's what the dictionary says about "social":1. pertaining to, devoted to, or characterized by friendly companionship or relations: a social club.2. seeking or enjoying the companionship of others; friendly; sociable; gregarious.3. living or disposed to live in companionship with others or in a community, rather than in isolation: People are social beingsHope you can join us.Leave your comments and questions here before, during and after the show.This is a Google+ Tips & Topics Community presentation.http://goo.gl/uJh80aIf you'd like to keep on top of what's happening on Google+, subscribe to my weekly Google+ Tips of the Week Newsletter here: www.newraycom.com Social.

Chef Dennis Littley570,998Please join me and my co-host +Susan Serra as we premiere our new show Around the Kitchen Table with Chef Dennis and Susan Serra  with our very special guest +David F Leopold Each week I will prepare one of my favorite Restaurant Dishes with one of our G+ friends and provide the recipe for you to work along side us or save to make later.Susan will bring her many years of Kitchen Design experience to the show and discuss different elements of the kitchen each week, from Flatware to Counter Tops ,  she'll share her tips for not only beautifying your kitchen but showing you how to get the most from the space you have.Chicken MarsalaIngredients10 oz Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast or Chicken Tenders10 oz Baby Bella Mushrooms (or regular mushrooms)extra virgin olive oilseasoned flour to dust chicken1 Tablespoon ButterPinch of Black PepperPinch of Granulated Onion1 Cup Chicken Stock1 Cup MarsalaInstructions1. prepare your chicken, if you purchases boneless breasts, you will need to trim away any fat and skin.  If the breasts are heavy your best bet is to split them down the middle and make to thinner fillets from the one breast. You can also pound the breasts thinner with a meat hammer but that is not always necessary when you split the breast.  If you are using tenders you can just use them as they are.2. Now that your chicken is prepared you want to set up a saute pan with extra virgin olive oil, dredge the chicken in flour seasoned with salt and pepper, and add it to your hot saute pan.  3. Saute the chicken for 2-3 minutes on one side then turn it over, at this time add your mushrooms to the pan.  4. Continue to saute the chicken, turning it as needed and letting the mushrooms cook.  5. after the mushrooms look cooked and the chicken is well seared on all sides, add in 3/4 of a cup of your Marsala ( reserve 2 ounces to finish the dish).If you have a gas range your Marsala may flame up briefly, it doesn't have to, but its fun to show off with!5. After your Marsala has briefly cooked down, add in your chicken stock, reduce your heat, and allow your chicken to simmer on low as your sauce reduces.  At this time add in your granulated garlic and black pepper to taste.  I do not use garlic in my Marsala’s, and if your chicken stock has salt in it you should need no additional salt.  6. When your sauce has reduced about half of its original liquid, take your butter and squeeze it into the flour you used to dredge your chicken in.  You want to squeeze in as muchAround the Kitchen Table - Chicken Marsala2014-03-24 20:00:00123G+

Ray Hiltz23,765This week, the Google Plus Lunch Bunch gets personal.When we're told our Brands must be human and we need to be authentic, it's hard not to take our interactions on the web, well, personally.I saw Her on the weekend - not my ex wife, but the movie starring Joaquin Phoenix and brilliantly directed by Spike Jonze.I dragged my feet for a long time before finally seeing it.  The idea of a human falling in love with an OS (operating system) seemed so preposterous. Ironically, it was one of the most "Human" movies I've seen as it dealt with the very question of what it is to be human.On today's  #GPlusLunchBunch  show,  we'll be discussing whether the social web has blurred the line between person and persona.Are we so hooked on online validation that we confuse real friendships with our online friends?Are  receiving "likes",  "plus 1's"  and "RT's" such an easy high that we get hooked on the digital soft focus version of ourselves?Hope you can join us.Leave your comments and questions here before, during and after the show.The show is a quick 30 minutes.This is a Google+ Tips & Topics Community presentation.If you're a subscriber to my weekly G+ Tips Newsletter but haven't joined our community yet, knock 3 times and tell them Ray sent you:  http://goo.gl/6nAxBO  Yes...This is About You.2014-03-11 17:15:0035G+

Jess + Scott + You264People are bombarded with so many messages...which requires intentional planning to integrate a message across mediums, interact with customers in a way that brings them into the story, and know exactly what the result will be. That’s the obvious truth of using storytelling in marketing.Source:The company value proposition. (Who are you, what do you do, and why does it matter?)Framework:Stories position your product within the marketplace and are reinforced by every customer facing area of the business (and to ensure consistency...the buy in from employees, vendors, and collaborators must exist too).Connection Point:Stories show solutions to customer problems, give them opportunities to experience what they are told they will receive. Here are some commonly held beliefs...that are actually myths:- Try to get customers to interact with the brand (but, do they really want to?).- Interaction builds relationship (but, do people want to have a relationship with a brand?).- Be everywhere all the time to reach customers (but, do customers want to hear from you all the time?)Special Guest: Mike AlltonCombine all that with SEO and +Mike Allton  is the one person we immediately thought of. Why? He comes from a website background, understands how the web can be our sales funnel and how our time and energy using social media (ohh… including automation) generates return.Come and lets dig into our understanding of how we tell our story, how it affects the actual experience when connecting to us, and how to create referral or recurring business by maintaining relationships. Ohhh...Did we talk about “Differentiated Storytelling?”  And now, so can you.YOU (the Y in JSY) matter - come and explore this topic with +Jessica Dewell and +Scott Scowcroft. Start the conversation now.(We are a LATE show. Responding Yes or Maybe will set a reminder so you can catch the replay.)*Hashtag: #JSY *Like the topic? Know someone that will enjoy it?

Ray Hiltz23,765The   #GPlusLunchBunch  will be talking trust this week.Trust is the bedrock on which we build communities, networks and business. You’d think that it would be at the centre of every company’s marketing plan. But you'd be wrong.With Google's emphasis on authenticity, authority and social signals, will spending more time here build our online reputation?A +Forrester Research study revealed that 70% of consumers trust brand recommendations from friends, only 10% trust advertising.Yet the majority of companies remain in their Mad Men rut and give no serious attention to building relationships with their market.It was interesting to read +Brooke Ballard's article for +SteamFeed  last week: What Makes Your Content Credible? http://www.steamfeed.com/makes-content-credibleto see how various contributors answered the question.Hmmm, can the content be credible if the author's not -  or vice versa?Please join us, comment or ask questions.The show is a quick 30 minutes.This is a Google+ Tips & Topics Community presentation.If you're a subscriber to my weekly G+ Tips Newsletter but haven't joined our community yet, knock 3 times and tell them Ray sent you:  http://goo.gl/6nAxBO  Can We Gain More Trust Through Google Plus?2014-03-04 18:15:0041G+

What's Your Story?Before I got here to Google Plus, I used to be a corporate rat who used to be a journalist, before I jumped ship into full-time writing and blogging. I travel a lot. Over the last three years I've spent time in thirteen countries and three continents making airports and hotel rooms more of a constant, for me, than home. The one stability in all this is Google+ where I can be found, time allowing, on most days. _The conversation here is very real and the issues we talk about are engaging and I have met people on G+ who are simply superb to connect with. I post frequently on what grabs my attention. I share insights from my writing and research and I take part in many conversations where I feel I can deliver value.  Social media is changing everything. How we shape that change and what we do in the aftermath is down to us. _This week's show is sponsored by:+Holiday Inn Washington DC-Central/White House  A full service hotel, conveniently located in downtown Washington, DC The hotel is located within walking distance of the White House, DC Convention Center, and two separate Metro/subway stops. http://www.inndc.comEach week +Christine DeGraff & +Mia Voss  spotlight guests who share What's Your Story?

martin shervington551,509Who wants to join me as I interview Jay Baer about his New York Times best selling business book?We will be talking about the attitude/culture/approach of 'helping', including how Jay finds the culture on Google+; where he thinks we should be putting our attention right now, and where it is going in the future.Whether you are a business or an individual looking at your own approach, this should be a lot of fun and give you new insights too!What is 'Youtility' all about?Jay says..."The difference between helping and selling is just two letters. But those two letters are critically important to your company’s success.You’re not competing for attention only against other, similar products. You’re competing for attention against everything. To win in this hyper-competitive environment, you must ask “How can we help?”If you sell something, you make a customer today, but if you genuinely help someone, you create a customer for life. This is Youtility."Sound good? See you then!An interview with Jay Baer about his book 'YouTility"!2014-02-25 20:00:0080G+

Jess + Scott + You264History, personal experience, current events, and our opinions bring us stories we can use to connect to, illustrate points, and create opportunities from. Reach for what you want and launch from a great story.Stories come in all shapes and sizes from introductions, illustrations, and describing opportunities to name a few. In today’s business world, our success is directly related to how we connect with others personally and professionally. The voice we use, the stance we take, and even the words we choose enhance the story we’re telling.With three learning styles and four main personality types, a plethora of combinations emerge illustrating how amazing and unique each of our stories can be. Believing that every small business person and entrepreneur needs this skill, this week’s show with +Jessica Dewell and +Scott Scowcroft   will explore the correlation between opportunity and “the story”:- Why do stories matter so much?- How do we get started for the best person-to-person connection?- Can stories be used to increase the opportunity of closing a sale?- What should I consider to create a process to practice?Seems overwhelming?

Ray Hiltz23,765The best way to suck at marketing is to treat your clients as transactions instead of relationships.+Rand Fishkin's  Whiteboard Friday post last week was very appropriate for Valentine's Day. (view it here: http://goo.gl/2SqNxB )"Transactional marketing results in only one thing -- transactional relationships. Those transactional relationships are representative because every interaction is viewed exclusively through this "how are you going to become money for me," which is an ugly, ugly way to think and an ugly way to be thought of."Everyone on this side of the social media divide knows the importance of building relationships and know that doing that doesn't happen overnight.Ironically, business knows that as well. They've been doing in for decades at Chamber of Commerce and other networking events.However, when it comes to online marketing, seems the business model is more "wham bam, thank you ma,am", than "I loves ya, honey, I loves ya!"."If you think about the difference between dating and paying for a physical relationship, they're thought of in such different ways. One has all sorts of positive and romantic and long-term associations in the world, and the other has incredibly negative connotations."On mobile?

Jess + Scott + You264Mobile viewers: http://youtu.be/U7w9eWl9maIDangerous, exciting, and even fun!

When on a tightrope, looking down, faltering in the next step, indecision about whether or not we can go forward cause the magnificent view to be lost.Every day it seems there is a new tool for us to use, or we keep hearing about tools that we aren’t using that we nag ourselves to check out.

Or, if you’re more like +Scott Scowcroft (who just wants to get the job done), it can be overwhelming.To research, choose, implement and stick with technology that is right for your business is an art - a special skill that years to master.

No matter your technical prowess, charming personality or depth of knowledge, you risk your Hangout on Air simply falling apart if you neglect one important component: your script.  A script is but one link in a chain, but you know the old say “A chain is only as strong as it’s weakest link.” So how strong is your HOA chain? *Five reasons you’ll want to watch:*1. Find out a simple fourteen word definition of a script2. Learn the six types of scripts Jess and Scott believe are mostappropriate for HOAs.3. When is it okay to not have a script?4.

Ray Hiltz23,765For freelancers or the self-employed especially, sharing "free" content online is essential marketing that takes a large investment of time.Whether you're a social media consultant or a real estate agent, the time you take to create relevant, helpful content is time away from direct revenue generating projects.So when someone hits you up for a quick coffee to ask for advice or to "pick your brain" do you feel they don't value your "time".I'd planned to do a show on this topic for awhile but was motivated do it this week when I came across a post from +Peg Fitzpatrick  who shared Adrienne Graham's Forbes article: No, You Can't Pick My Brain. It Costs Too Much.  http://goo.gl/zJuxYoThe post includes insightful comments by +Stephan Hovnanian  +Jimmie Lanley  and +Christine DeGraff.So, where do you draw the line on free advice?The #GPlusLunchBunch  panel will share some of their experiences and ideas on how to deal with "brain pickers".We'd love your feedback so please leave your comments and questions here and we'll get to them, if not during the show, shortly afterwards.On mobile?

Jess + Scott + You264We are just people, and just mere mortals at that. So, how can “we” [in this case meaning you and I] change the world? Peek at Google. Ya, you heard right. Google! They research and develop (R&D) innovations online and off, in the medical field, in commerce, in transportation, robotics, learning, life’s longevity and more. Much more. They [in this case meaning Googlers or employees] feel the risk is worth the reward and the falling down means learning up. For them, learning is what helps fuel opportunity which in turn leads to growth and sustainability.So how different are We-from-They or Us-from-Them? On this Jess and Scott agree: It’s not the scale that counts so much as how you feel about it and then act on how you feel. Here’s the kicker. In descending order: technology, the internet, social media and Google/G+ can now easily and effortless transfer into our hands the ability to explore our curiosity along with all the innovation and opportunity inherent in the technology. Now, how cool is that?So, do you see that going forward it’s YOU? We decide next steps and decide Is the risk worth the reward, and are we willing to fall and learn to grow?This week’s JSY! show serves up case studies drawn from a courageous group demanding change to make our point: Even though our R&D budgets are a smidge smaller than say, Google’s, it’s the culture we set in motion for ourselves and our family, work and country that can make an impact. Might even save the world. In the end, it is the you and I that chooses to jump (or not), expand (or not) and grow (or not). For small businesses and entrepreneurs this means providing new and different value for our customers.Join +Jessica Dewell +Scott Scowcroft  and +Terry Leigh Britton    as we explore innovation to create opportunity which can lead to real change. Mere mortals? We think not.YOU (the Y in JSY) take action that matters.

Ray Hiltz23,765+David Amerland joins us at our lunch table on Tuesday.“It is not wrong to think that the traditional buying of a product has been replaced with an unwritten contract of shared values between a business and its customers.” - David AmerlandIf you've been on Google+ for any length of time, you've probably run into a HOA that features David. He's literally the guy that wrote the book on Semantic Search , which I read...twice.The word "semantic" comes off a bit nerdy and to be honest most small business owners  don't know or care about it.When it comes to search, they want to be found. They think SEO.But search is much more than being found by your keywords. It's about you, not as a business, but as the person behind the business.Hope you can join us as the #GPlusLunchBunch panel joins David in a conversation about why you have to take search personally.On mobile?

Here's your link:http://youtu.be/9dUVzWcgNpEThese are surprisingly different and revealing questions. If Google/Google Plus is now redefining what the top means, then how’s it working out for you? The Internet changes how we interact with our world. Businesses capitalize on how to market, advertise, and connect with their target markets online. Yet, people make up businesses.It’s how we use the medium, and G+ is people-oriented. It’s what’s between the how and who that create opportunity from the energy and heart we bring.The ensuing lively planning discussions brought to mind the book, “Hope for the Flowers” by +Trina Paulus. In this children’s classic, caterpillars too raced to the top. So, how did it work out for them?We’re looking forward to a provocative hour that promises to put to the test the famous Jess plus Scott dynamic.

Ray Hiltz23,765What's the ROI of a HOA? - With Ronnie BincerHangouts and Hangouts on Air (HOA's) are undoubtedly the most popular Google+ service.It's like the entry drug for those mildly curious about Google+.But as +Ronnie Bincer has pointed out in many of his HOA appearances, there are concrete networking, social and search benefits to hosting HOA's.HOA is more than a Skype wannabe. (as Google+ is much more than a Facebook rip off.)In this, our last #gpluslunchbunch  show of 2013, Ronnie and the panel will discuss the unique benefits of using Hangouts On Air to power your online marketing. We'll touch on: monetization, lead generation and search.Keeping this show at 30 minutes is going to be my biggest HOA hosting challenge of the year! ;-)On Mobile?

Ray Hiltz23,765Is Google Plus too Damn HardIs the social network/layer/content marketing platform/video conferencing application/lead generation tool/SEO booster too much for the masses to master?I watched a couple of super HOA's last week that examined the social benefits of Google+. As this choir boy was enjoying being sung to, I realized that if I had just stumbled upon this show without having immersed myself in G+, I would have been overwhelmed.It seemed to be impossible to simply describe either the benefits or the tactics of using Google+ without sounding like a Google Plus specialist convention.The host tried to keep it simple, but "building a network" veered into Ripples, into Influence, into semantic search, etc..Would Google rather have our respect than our friendship?I Hope you'll be able to join us as the #GPlusLunchBunch chew on this topic.Leave your comments and questions right here on the Event page.If you're on mobile, watch on my YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/CommunicationsNRCThe show is a quick 30 minutes.This is a Google+ Tips & Topics Community presentation.

Jess + Scott + You264Business requires customers. Those customers choose when and why they purchase a product. Through the use of personas, you can make actionable business decisions. This week’s guest, Dr. Russell Faust of Anicca Media, is an expert on understanding market segments. Dr. Faust has stated that “customer personas are under-utilized, even by the gurus” which makes Scott smile and Jess do a happy dance.Features and benefits, an elevator speech, product descriptions, testimony and all other manner of other stuff describes product. Add a dash of wit and marketing messages and the mediums to share the message makes digital footprint. Personas match that specific messaging to possible buying indicators opening the door for a conversation with potential customers. Find out how he overcame his healthcare client’s institutional resistance to social media. Tune in as this conversation will attempt to reverse engineer what he’s learned. This very well might be the missing link that makes social click for you.Don’t know what a persona is, not sure how to use the ones you’ve created, have specific questions on this topic?The Y in the J+S+Y Show is YOU!Dr. +Russell Faust , and his partner +Dean Berg for conversation and questions with us before and after the event.(PS: Want a head start on persona’s?Check out this G+ post by Dean Berg: Five Simple Steps for Healthcare Persona Development (goo.gl/AebMYP)and Jess' post: Avoid Three Pitfalls by Using Cutomer Profiles (goo.gl/C2JfLx))Create Opportunity with Customer Personas2013-11-20 04:15:0015G+
Ray Hiltz23,765Is 'Social' Overrated?This may be an odd topic for someone whose job it is to help business "be" social online.Brands either aren't able to make the cultural shift, or they figure they're doing pretty good doing what they've always done. They look at new technology as a new opportunity to be in customer's line of vision.Google Plus isn't a social platform but a social "layer" over Google products. Is that difference intentional?Hope you'll be able to join us as the #GPlusLunchBunch chew on this topic.Just leave your comments and questions right here on the Event page.The show is a quick 30 minutes.This is a Google+ Tips & Topics Community presentation.

Joshua Berg32,411Has your website been hit by the Google Panda, Google Penguin, or the EMD (Exact Match Domain) Update algorithms in the last year?Do you have a business site that mysteriously lost its high ranking in Google search almost overnight?Has your website traffic progressively gotten worse over the last 1 to 2 years, no matter how much work & money you spend on it?Did you previously invest a great deal optimizing your site's keywords and/or, building volumes of backlinks to your website?Do you have some knowledge of SEO & have you used any SEO tools & website plugins for keyword optimization?If any of the above sounds familiar, you've probably been visited by the 3 ghosts of Christmas Panda, Prenguin & the EMD Update. So I've invited a well known & experienced ghost buster to come & break it down for us.+Eric Enge is very knowledgeable on this subject, has written & talked a lot about these algorithms, how to clean up the old SEO mess, making reconsideration requests & sorting things out with Google.

Ray Hiltz23,765Where do you think Google+ is going?There were a lot of updates rolled out last week, most of them technical ones that improved the "media" experience of Google+ i.e.  image awesomeness extended to video, SMS, and a new Hangout interface.(HOA scheduler announced, but not rolled out to the general public yet. #tease)Ironically the rollout that continues to create the biggest buzz is "vanity urls" which only goes to show that people always trump technology.Is Google Plus pulling back from being a social space and instead focusing on search and media technology to drive people to the platform?The show is a quick 30 minutes.We love to hear from you so please leave comments and questions here.This is a Google+ Tips & Topics Community presentation.

Ray Hiltz23,765Perhaps it's because we're leading up to Halloween and I saw The Conjuring on the weekend that my head's filled with ghosts, and I'm not talking Casper here.The cliché that Google+ is a ghost town kept spinning around my head. Perhaps it's a ghost town because you're not seeing or listening to what's actually going on here. In addition to the movie, I attended a full day marketing workshop where we had break chat about businesses not "getting" social.In the rush to this new free and easy advertising  platform with its access to millions of people, business (and marketers) were in effect, party crashing. Social media isn't an opportunity for business to be heard, but for businesses to hear.The show is a quick 30 minutes.We love to hear from you so please leave comments and questions here.This is a Google+ Tips & Topics Community presentation.

Ray Hiltz23,765"Social Business have not struck the right chord with leaders...It’s not that the ideas are losing or that the goals are without merit, they are. The problem is that the deeper meaning and richer context is being lost on executives who still think the word “social” indicates a frivolous time-wasting pursuit."  ~ Brian Solis+Randy Bowden  posted this quote from +Brian Solis  last week that gave me a feeling of déja-vu all over again.While debating what constitutes a "social business" keeps social pundits busy, I think there's consensus that its foundation is social culture.That "culture" is necessary whether you're IBM or Auntie Em's Pie Shop.So the question for the panel this week is: Is Business Social-Phobic?The show is a quick 30 minutes.We love to hear from you so please leave comments and questions here.This is a Google+ Tips & Topics Community presentation.

Yifat Cohen66,821How the social revolution is changing the way we do business.We all keep hearing about how important it is to engage and build relationships - what does it really mean, and what tools are out there to help us master it?When +Gideon Rosenblatt spoke at DreamForce he saw a vision for a future of business information systems that is entirely based on relationships.ENGAGE OR DIE.In this Hangout On Air, we'll dive into the topic of engagement with +Gideon Rosenblatt   as he explains what he calls "engagement leverage." This framework bridges the kind of internal engagement you need with employees with the external engagement you need with customers, suppliers, partners and other external stakeholders. It's a simple, yet surprisingly powerful way for thinking about the way your organization gets work done. Gideon writes at Alchemy of Change about helping companies bring purpose and technology together into a more powerful source of competitive advantage. Gideon just came back from leading a panel on engagement at Salesforce's Dreamforce Conference (now the biggest tech conference in the world) and so in addition to talking with us about the engagement leverage model, he'll also share some of what he saw at Dreamforce.

JL's Circles11,195The Rabbit Herd (v.1)This is the first of the Rabbit Herd circle shares. It is a very eclectic collection of people and pages. There is no theme, other than the name, behind the people/ pages in this first circle.Why "Rabbit Herd"? My last name means "rabbit" in French and a "herd" is a group of rabbits.As this is the first Rabbit Herd circle share no one is required to do anything. However, it would be great if you:1) Add this page along with my main account (+Jeffrey Lapin ) to your circles.2) +1 this circle.3) Publicly share this circle.4) Leave a comment on this post especially if you have done one of the 3 items above.Please share the Rabbit Herd from this original post.=========================================================I do not wish to offend anyone here on G+, so if you would like to be removed from my shared circles, please send me a message and I will not include you in future circles. Being included in a circle share only affects you as you will receive notifications if people circle you. You are under no obligation to share the circle, add this circle to your own or circle anyone back that circles you.=========================================================#circleshare #sharingcircles #rabbitherd #rabbitherdcircleshare 2014-06-06 00:15:36442202621CC G+

curator Circle0As promised yesterday, here is the #CuratorCircleEdition  4Wisdom of this circle: Take time to view the profile of those you add if you care for the quality of the content shared on G+!Some of you that show interest to be included in the circle will not find themselves in. It is not an hazard; the minimum one can do while asking for inclusion in a shared circle is to include the sharer page or profile. Also due to the maximum space of 500 profiles, others have been kept for the next circle.Rules of the circle:1. Plus and share the circle (add me if you haven't done it yet)2. Comment to ask for inclusion. And enjoy your day.2014-05-06 13:53:46501361223CC G+

Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/2)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca  #sharedcircles #circles #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:30:374321234995CC G+

But wouldn't it be cool if there was a a save option that you could access on our side menu?

Have we given up on "Social Business"?
Sometimes I feel we have as the promise of social media technology seem to dissipate in the harsh light of quarterly reports, underemployment and overwork.
I was very happy to come across this article by +David Amerland in my Twitter stream because it reminded me that the main reason I became a consultant was to help businesses use social media to become more responsive and human.

3 Reasons Why +Wade Harman Hates Relationship Marketing
comment on Wade's post:
Relationship Marketing, like Social Marketing can seem like oxymorons to people who aren't "marketers".

When I first got involved with the business of social media, I was put off by the presentations I attended that pitched the "bait and switch" tactic as in "go out there and like lots of people, make them think you're their friends to build your email list."
The message was never explicit, but the implication was clear: build relationships to make money. It is about manipulation.

Being a bit of an old hippie, I've always been suspicious of marketing so this didn't help. 
One of the biggest roadblocks for companies adopting social media is the word "social". Social to most people is the opposite ofbu... more »

Double, double

A little bit of a breather after last week’s blistering activity but still some really special content. There was a hint of something brewing in the HOA arena with many events experiencing difficulties (a sign of an update rolling out perhaps?). Hopefully the events listed will still be accessible for you.

I really enjoyed this lost episode of the +Jess + Scott + You Show: SEO: Poh-tay-toh, Pah-Tah-Doh and EssEeeeOhhhh! (http://goo.gl/TiZgRy).

Do Words like "Structured Data and "Semantic Search Visibility" Intimidate You?
If you publish content online and circled +David Amerland - as you should - then you'll have an idea of how they relate to each other.

Structured data helps search engines know what your content is about and how it relates to other content on the web.
Not a coder? Not a problem...

"It does however require some planning and forethought and it will also require some discipline as you move forward. So if you really want your website’s content to feature in Google’s search here are the steps required:"

The 4 steps are....

Showcase content in Hangouts On Air

Hosting a Hangout On Air is a great way to connect with your audience. While viewers are tuned in, this is the perfect time to share or promote something related to the conversation. Using the new Showcase app, hosts can now direct viewers to websites, merchandise, YouTube videos, your Google+ profile and Google Play content, all in a rich display on the right-hand side of the Hangout broadcast. 

Now, anyone can host a live conversation and connect their viewers to a variety of related content. Take a look at how the cast of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes used the Showcase app to link to exclusive footage, movie tickets, and more (http://goo.gl/GngZvv). Also, check out how Common used the Showcase app to promote his new music video and to drive fans directly to the Play Store to purchase his new album in real-time... more »

Do Your Hesitate in Seeking Advice?
via +Inc. 
This interview with Wharton business prof. Adam Grant, held two revelations for me:
1. Along with weak ties and strong ties there are dormant ties that refer to people you used to know but have since lost touch with.

We meet lots of people online, some of whom have faded from our streams for one reason or another. These dormant connections are better for networking than strong or weak ones.

"Research demonstrates that when you need advice on a project, you get better information when you reach out to someone you used to know than someone you currently know."

"The idea is that strong ties tend to give you redundant knowledge, as they are likely to know the same people and same things you do, but dormant ties have a much more diverse network."

Connections

I’ve been drinking coffee since I was 12 (and against my parents’ wishes at the time) and through that time I have gone from instant to filtered to freshly ground coffee beans. To espresso and back again, countless times. Drunk black, without sugar (I drink way too much coffee to want to put sugar in it) what has become important to me is the jolt to my synapses which transforms me into a livable human being, each morning.

Although instant coffee was first invented in 1890 by a Kiwi, it wasn’t looked upon as a mass manufactured product until Nestlé introduced the concept in 1938 and it wasn’t until after WWII that high-vacuum, freeze-dried coffee was available (saving our taste buds and further popularizing the medium). 

The point is that instant coffee became both commercially viable and popular because technology had been invented to producepenicilli... more »

Mark Traphagen: Community Speaker MozCon 2014

Greetings fellow digital marketers! We are entering day two of MozCon 2014, and today is jam packed with another stellar lineup of presenters. For those that couldn't make it this year, I'm providing a recap of each presentation which will cover insight and tips and tools from each speaker.

+Mark Traphagen was a community speaker during the conference and provided a strategy to the audience that shows brands how to increase authority, engagement, and visibility in Google+ and Google Search.

★ Brand authority - Google is using Google brand pages as a hub to understand brands which includes engagement with other users

When we launched Google+ over three years ago, we had a lot of restrictions on what name you could use on your profile. This helped create a community made up of real people, but it also excluded a number of people who wanted to be part of it without using their real names. 

Over the years, as Google+ grew and its community became established, we steadily opened up this policy, from allowing +Page owners to use any name of their choosing to letting YouTube users bring their usernames into Google+. Today, we are taking the last step: there are no more restrictions on what name you can use. 

We know you've been calling for this change for a while. We know that our names policy has been unclear, and this has led to some unnecessarily difficult experiences for some of our users. For this we apologize, and we hope that today's change is a step toward making Google+ the welcominga... more »

A great example of my business process is this video [ Scream for Ice Cream | Turkish Ice Cream Man Trolls Customers ] posted by +Paul Ramsay here ( goo.gl/yO4xOi ), which I found thank to the very nice +Crystal Olivarria. Thank you for the ping Crystal! :o)

Here is a list of the tips:

Has the definition of "friend" changed due to Social Media?
or has it always been vague.
+Curtis Silver shared his insight into the matter in this +LinkedIn post which really gave me cause to wonder if social media is changing the meaning of friendship.
Friendship is “a distinctively personal relationship that is grounded in a concern on the part of each friend for the welfare of the other, for the others sake, and that involves some degree of intimacy”.

Can this relationship be possible if it only exists via the internet?
Curtis sites a 2006 study in the journal American Sociological Review that states Americans have been suffering a loss in number and quality of friendships since 1985. - 25% of Americans have no close friends, and the average of that overall per person has dropped from four to two.

Is this why we're so eager toembrac... more »

How to Create Custom Hangout Lower Thirds with +iPiccy
(Click on album below for step by step guide)

If you host or guest on a Google+ Hangout On Air, you’ve probably seen those “newsroom” like bars at the bottom of the screen identifying the person above it.

These bars are referred to as lower thirds
Google+ Hangouts has a third party app called the +Hangout Toolbox 
This is the number one used Hangout app, which is not surprising due to its simplicity and features such as the ability to upload your brand logo and save your lower thirds as presets.

I've written a detailed article on my +NewRayCom blog that includes a short video that shows you how to quickly add a Lower Third using the Hangout Toolbox.

Great rant from my pal +nancy a. locke about the tired expressions: “la langue de Molière” and "la langue de Shakespeare" when referring to the language of a particular song or text.

includes video of Charles Aznavour singing "Emmenez-moi" for all you fans who love their music "dans la langue de Molière."  :-)

What has changed with Authorship rich snippets and why?
my new article for +SteamFeed http://goo.gl/6nxmiD

The fact that we no longer see Authorship markup photos in public Google searches is no longer news to many of us here on Google+.
We've beaten the topic to death in various posts and comments.
+Mark Traphagen, +Eli Fennell and +Joshua Berg to name a few, have analyzed the change and given their opinions.

I wrote this article primarily for people who don't drink the G+ Kool-Aid and who may think the disappearance of photos in search is another nail in the Google+ coffin.

There are many indications Google is still on the "Plus" side:

 - Improving access to Hangouts by eliminating the necessity to download a Plugin (on Chrome).

 - Rolling out Google My Business (GMB), the all in one Dashboard to managepages... more »

Is your Google+ profile optimized for networking?
This is one of the easiest things you can do for yourself, if you are here on Google Plus to network and build relationships that can grow your authority in your area of expertise. 

When you leave a comment on someone else's post, or do any of 20+ other things on and around Google+, you are allowing yourself to be discovered by people who think you might be interesting.

How do they find out if you're interesting? A comment may have caught their eye, so they'll hover over your name, and get that pop-up we affectionately call a hovercard, which shows:

* your cover photo
* tagline
* employment
* education
* location

Make those characters count, and tell people who you are, what you do, how they connect, and more. 

HOW TO EDIT YOUR HOVERCARD:

To Mute or To Block? That is the Question!

Google+ provides two functions for limiting the ability of people to interact with you: you can Mute or Block the people. It is important to understand the difference so that you know which function to use.

Mute prevents the profile or page you mute from notifying you in the future. If you mute someone, you will still be able to see each other's profiles and posts, and to comment on each other's posts. Their posts will even continue to appear in your Home stream (assuming you have them circled, that is). Nothing the person you mute does, however, will trigger a Google+ notification for you.

Block is a much more powerful too.  When you block someone:
* You will not see their content in your stream (even though you'll remain in their circles).
* They will be be removed from any circles of... more »

Don't Let the Mobile Revolution Start Without You
+Pete Meyers was a skeptic about Mobile dominance after hearing year after year that "that this would be “The Year” for mobile."

This in depth analysis published on +Moz convinced him that marketers need to start paying attention to mobile...now. 

"Smartphones are the backbone of our daily media use.They are the devices used most throughout the day and serve as the most common starting point for activities across multiple screens, *Going mobile has become a business imperative."
