I Needed to Have More Fans and Plays

Featured

I have been posting my music to the Reverbnation website for a couple of years. I was slowly gaining fans, but my numbers were still bleak compared to others who started posting just recently. Some of the songs that I listened to were not that good either, at least not compared to what I do, and I knew that I had to do something different to get more fans and plays on the site. I was not sure how to do this though, so I did a search for buy Reverbnation plays. I figured there had to be a company out there that could help me with this, but I was surprised to see just how many there are. Continue reading

Got a Job for an Album Cover

Featured

Popularity Contest Now On DatPiffI was sitting in the library today when this guy came up. I did not know who he was, but he knew me. I had been working for a guy who emcees parties around here. He wanted to buy datpiff views and promote his mix tapes, but he needed to have a cover to go on his mix tape. It was a simple job. I did it in about an hour and a half without any difficulty. I charged the guy very little. In fact he gave me thirty bucks and a twelve pack of craft beer. He tried to argue that Pabst Blue Ribbon was a craft beer, but that was not our deal and I got him to get me a 12 pack of some really great India Pale Ale from the grocery store on Walker Avenue, they have a huge selection of really good beer on sale there.

At any rate this guy liked the album cover, even though I did not think it was a very good design. Continue reading

Corporations on Social Media: Great for Consumers?

Featured

These days, companies really can’t afford not to have a social media presence. At least, that’s what they say, so I went looking to see whether I could find companies who had one. Did you know that LinkedIn has a Facebook page? That impressed me in a strange way. And of course, I was able to find behemoths like Walmart, category killers like Walgreens, and consultancies like mandrien on twitter.

Personally, I like that they’re all there. Not so much because, hey, I have a Facebook page or a Twitter account and this makes those companies Just Like Me. No, more because this means they care enough that if I wanted to talk to them, or even just was bothered enough by their service, or their competitors’, I feel like they would make a point of noticing my complaint or my interest.

It’s like complaining about a business on Yelp, but you often get even faster response times, from what I hear. For example, a friend of mine had some issue with a Walgreens pharmacy in her city. They must have had one of their customers’ phone numbers wrong, because they kept calling her whenever that other person’s prescription was ready. She doesn’t take any medication regularly, so this eventually got her annoyed enough that she mentioned it in a Tweet. Not one to Walgreens (she didn’t even know they were on Twitter), just one to her friends.

She told me that the company’s Twitter account sent her a Tweet within about 10 minutes and had the problem fixed for her later that day. It’s not remotely possible that that would happen just by writing a company anymore, is it? I don’t believe so. Heck, I was impressed that it happened at all.

If that’s the brave new frontier that companies are willing to broach when they come to Twitter and Facebook and other places that their customers hang out, I think it’s a great thing. We all deserve customer service like that, and I like to think that companies will only come to socialize with us this way if they’re prepared to give it!

Tips on Setting Up a Solid LinkedIn Profile

Featured

Social media is exploding, and LinkedIn is one of the best sites when it comes to making professional connections with others. However, many people aren’t sure how to set up their page to maximize the effect their profile can have. It is always a good idea to look at an example of how someone else has set up their page; it can help you to craft something, with your own spin, that is professional and noteworthy. The Rusty Solomon linkedin site is a great page to look at, both as an example of how to set up a Linkedin page and a good reference for consulting work.

In addition to using an example, remember that keywords are your best friend. Prior to filling out your page, think about what keywords are important to you and your business. Continue reading

Research and Markets: Global Marketing Automation Software Market to Grow At a CAGR Of 9.29% Over the Period 2014-2019, New Report Says – Yahoo Finance

The emergence of cloud-based marketing automation solutions has enabled organizational efficiency besides reducing the deploying cost of IT infrastructure. The cloud-based model offers a pay-per-use option and a one-time set-up fee to maintain, upgrade, and provide lifetime support for the software. Presently, the market has many vendors offering cloud-based solutions to expand their services and enter new markets. In addition, the growing popularity of marketing automation software solutions, given their ability to help businesses store, secure access, and maintain digital records and data, is further increasing the adoption of cloud-based solutions. According to the report, currently, digital media such as the Internet, email, and social media is the most popular platform for consumers to share critical information and reviews. The number of Internet users has also increased considerably with the data stating more than 2.6 billion users in 2014, and expected to cross 3 billion worldwide by 2015. Most organizations are making heavy investments in digital media to increase their customer reach and facilitate better communication. In addition, globalization has led to a high proliferation of new technologies such as broadband, 3G, laptops, smartphones, and tablets. These factors will trigger the demand for marketing automation software solutions in organizations to enhance their marketing experience and improve overall productivity. The absence of a skilled work pool to guide users to get better results from web analytics solutions and convert them into actionable insights is a major challenge.

Manufacturers already collect lots of data, but few of them have harnessed its potential and translated the raw numbers into useful information. Fewer than 14 percent of manufacturers in the United States have tied their machines to their enterprise networks to communicate information among departments, particularly between the factory floor and the office, said David Vasko, director of Advanced Technology Milwaukee Labs at Rockwell Automation Inc. Milwaukee-based Rockwell, a leading global provider of industrial power, control and information solutions, has partnered with Cisco to help manufacturers make those connections. Companies can use plant floor operations technology in cooperation with business level information technology to make better decisions, Rockwell says. The industrial Internet of Things can also help manufacturers harness the product data they collect in the field and use it to optimize the design of future products, Vasko said.

Disney denies shrinking Lily James’ waist in ‘Cinderella’ | TheCelebrityCafe.com

The local 7 pack is a local listing on Google, that shows results within the consumers local area. The 7-pack is the list of the top 7 businesses that have the most, and best, local citations and are associated with the keyword the searcher is using. In order to rank highly in this listing, however, Fannit explains that a business will need local citations (entries of their companys name, address, and phone number) on numerous, relevant listings and websites. In the article, they explain the importance of local citations, saying, If all other factors were equal between two competing businesses, but one had more citations, it would almost certainly rank higher than the other business with fewer citations. But the question still remains, how would a business acquire these citations? The article notes that business owners or marketing managers can either work at building the citations themselves, or they can hire an internet marketing firm, like Fannit.com, to establish listings for them. To learn more about Fannit’s SEO services, follow this link: http://fannit.com/local-seo-marketing/ The article concludes, saying, These citations from trusted websites are going to be a key component for dramatically improving your local search engine rankings.

At least, thats why Disney thinks everyone is wondering why Lily James waist looks so tiny in the Cinderella trailers. In the trailers, which prominently feature images of James in her blue ball gown, it looks like her waist was unnaturally shrunk. One promotional image that Disney is using (seen below) makes it even more obvious. However, a source at Disney told BuzzFeed that there was no post-production fiddling with her waist. Lilys waist hasnt been altered (in the film or in any stills/marketing materials) shes wearing a corset, the source said. Corset expert Catherine Clavering told BuzzFeed that the tiny wait could happen if the actress already has a tiny waist, but that doesnt completely mean that Disney didnt pull any digital tinkering. Cinderella was directed by Kenneth Branagh and hits theaters on March 16. The film had its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival and earned a mixed review from Variety . image via Facebook from Cinderella image of Lily James courtesy of INFphoto.com

Tonight, with a little bit of Coca-Cola, the Internet may, at least for a little while, become a happier, more positive place. During the second quarter of the game, Coca-Cola premiered a 60-second advertisement titled #MakeItHappy . The ad featured a unique spin on the importance of creating more positivity on the World Wide Web, highlighting inspiring moments of optimism in the face of online negativity. Through the ad, Coca-Cola asked people to stand together in support of one of its core values: spreading happiness. Many of us have seen or felt the effects of online negativity, and its a concern that only continues to grow within society, said Andy McMillin, VP and GM, Coca-Cola Trademark Brands. Advertising during the Big Game broadcast offers a huge opportunity to drive awareness around the topic and, more important, to encourage people to be more positive in their online actions. The spot opens with a student being mocked on video by classmates, negative comments being read on social media, and terse words and reactions shared from behind a screen. The scenes gave way to an Internet server room, where a precariously placed bottle of ice-cold Coca-Cola spilled into the mainframe, sending a massive liquid glitch that spreads happiness into the neighborhoods and cityscapes outside. Set to the song Show Me Love by Hundred Waters, the spot followed the happiness glitch as it entered routers, laptops and mobile phones, turning messages of negativity to ones of uplift and positivity. As the spot faded to The world is what we make it, Coca-Cola initiated a series of steps designed to immediately help bring some positivity to the Internet and inspire others to do the same. After the airing of the ad, Coca-Cola encouraged people to upload happiness to the places that need it most. On Twitter, users can change negative messages into something happier by replying to a negative tweet with the hashtag #MakeItHappy.
