Today’s quick questions and Answers About Marketing come via Facebook
Question 1 via a Facebook business group:
On one of my business groups, a business owner posted this request:
I have a fast-growing, highly engaged natural hair community. By *natural hair* I mean ethnic women who choose not to use chemical hair straighteners.
Think of it like this: “I’ve got big hair and I don’t care!”! I started the group as a hobby, but would love ideas for how to monetize it. They want healthy, long hair and ideas for styling it. They are addicted to hair products and how-to videos. There are a TON of free hair tutorials online. It’s ridiculous. I don’t want to make hair products or start a magazine.
This week a client emailed me to ask how to make website links open in a new page.
She had remembered me telling her to open these links in “new” browser windows so that her website would remain open in the background. If this step wasn’t done, the new website link would override her website, and the visitor could potentially forget where they’d been in the first place.
My client’s website is using WordPress.org and I made a snapshot to show her how to do it (see below).
Writing a week or more worth of tweets in advance, and then scheduling them is a great way to save time and effort. Quite often some of your tweets can be repeated month after month, so a new Twitter audience will get to see them too.
Marketing Tip 006 – Adding your URL to images make it easy to find YOU
Many people forget to put their link or URL on every photo or image they post online.
This is a missed opportunity, as you never know where the image my end up — and you want folks to come find you, don’t you? Sure you do 🙂
For example, in the image above, my website name appears in grey towards the bottom of the image. This is a thumbnail of the actual size, but it can still be read, so if this image gets ‘liked’ or ‘shared’, people will know how to get back to the author or originator.
This week’s Podcast is about taking control of your iPhone images and videos. I prefer not to use Apple iCloud storage, so I researched a better way to have total control over my images and videos, and where to store and back them up.
