Meeting Great People

Posted by

This weekend, I had the pleasure to speak at the NSA Mid-Atlantic chapter’s full day internet marketing intensive in Philadelphia. What a great way to meet other small business owners, learn new information, and share ideas!

Tom Gray was the keynote speaker, and gave a wonderful overview of Web 2.0 marketing. Other speakers included Rick (“don’t call me Richard”) Simmons, Sally Witt and Steve Coscia. They spoke about how they have promoted their own businesses with techniques ranging from blogging to social media (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn) to selling products on the internet. I gave two presentation on driving traffic to your site through search engine optimization (free search engine ranking techniques) and online ads with Adwords (paid search placement).

During the panel discussion at the end of the day, the audience asked us many questions. One of the most important points to come out during that discussion is that internet marketing (happily) is not a one-size-fits-all marketing tactic. There are so many ways to use internet marketing and social media marketing, you get to choose which ones fit your style and fit your audience. AND you don’t have to be a techie to partiicpate!

Going to one of these full-day events is a great way to meet people! But if there aren’t events like this close to you, remember that you can meet great people online through LinkedIn, Facebook and your blog. In 2009, all business and all marketing is about “making connections” … and internet marketing and social media lets you make them with ease.

I guess I’ve made it to the big times.  🙂

See my mention in Paul Brown’s article, “How to Avoid Becoming a Failure Statistic” in NY Times from last week.

We’ve Moved to a New (Blog) Home

Good news!

We have moved our blog location to a new home!

All my past blog entries have been moved to the new blog home, re-categorized for easy reading, and I’ve also included a “search” feature so you can find the information you need.

A few months ago, I decided to move my blog from Blogger to a WordPress blog hosted on my own website. Part of the reason was because I can backup a blog on my own website (it hard to do this when your blog is hosted on the blog software’s site). Also, Blogger’s Terms of Service sometimes conflict with what you want on your blog and you can’t take the risk of having Blogger canceling your blog. Finally, I get more SEO bang-for-the-buck by having my blog on my own domain than having it on another domain.
