Feeling a little sick and tired of spending so much time creating valuable content for your fans and followers?  Stop flying solo and start curating content from other non-competing Facebook for business fan pages, Pinterest boards, Twitter accounts, blogs and other online locations.  This content cure will help you grow your social community, create goodwill with other businesses and deliver valuable, engaging information to all your social networks.

Hash It Out

Are you using hashtags – or more importantly are you using hashtags effectively – when your business posts to Twitter?  Hashtags are a powerful tool for getting your tweets in front of the right target audience, and perfect for creating an ongoing live conversation on Twitter.  Here’s an entire blog post from Social Media Examiner discussing how to use hashtags in your social media marketing.

Three for One

Graphically Speaking
