Social Media is a great way to connect with others, share ideas and promote your brand during User Group Summit Phoenix. Sadly, this year I will not be attending, but I will be with you “remotely” and keeping up with all the news thanks to Twitter.
It will be a busy event for all of you “on the ground” so here are a few tips to make it easier to tweet, post and promote. Read more

Remember Rocky & Bullwinkle? There was a recurring skit called "Mr. Know It All" where Bullwinkle routinely showed us how smart he… wasn't. But we can learn something from our beloved moose.
You're an ERP Value Added Reseller. You're smart. You also need other people to know you're smart: your future prospects. But if you're like Bullwinkle and tell everybody you're smart… we'll just say it doesn't raise our opinion of his intelligence, does it?
At MabbitMarketing we focus on driving traffic to your blog, crafting creative posts to social media that show the world why they need to hear what you have to say. Not like Rocky, who just came right out and called Bullwinkle "Mr. Know It All", but by showing how you're genuinely helpful and knowledgeable. Read more
How often should you promote a blog post?
When I write a blog post, I want people to see it. Of course the main way they will find it, if I have done a good job at optimization, is from their search engine.

What if you plan a party and nobody shows up? Or worse, just one or two show up and you stare awkwardly at each other while they wonder where all the cool people went instead?

Attendees usually have several sessions to choose from during a single time slot, and plenty of people to distract them in the hallways, so you have tough competition. There are several things you can do to promote your session DURING the event. Here are four ideas: Read more
Are you a Twitter quitter?
I admit that I was a Twitter quitter. I set up an account years ago and promptly abandoned it. I am not alone though, 60% of all Twitter users quit in the first week.
Then I started Tweeting at events such as Microsoft Convergence. It was fun to interact and connect with other people at the event this way, but I still didn’t see what all the fuss was about.
Two tweets changed my mind. Read more
When I started using Twitter, many people gave me advice on WHAT to do, but they didn’t actually tell me HOW to do it, or what TOOLS I could use to actually get it done. So I want to make it easy for you. Here are some specific Twitter tips and the tools I use to actually get them done. Read more
I think that most of us like to help other people; especially when it is not too difficult to do so. If you want people to help you share your blog content, make it easy for them.
A great way to do this is to add a tweetable link. This link is preformatted with the text, a link to the post and your Twitter name. If readers like your idea and want to share it all they have to do is to click your (tweet this) link and hit send. Read more
