Social media is free and it has a super far reach as well as a huge impact on how well you show up in google and other search engine searches. get on every social media platform there is out there even the less known ones like fark or high5.

one other tip id give is to have the same branding across all your sites so use this tool http://namechk.com/ basically say your bands name is the dudlestrummers. you want that name across all social networks the same you dont want to be “dudlestrummers” on twitter but dudlestrummers123 on youtube. You wnat consistant branding across all platforms.

alsop you may want to consider buying likes, favs, views, followers, subscribers, etc. lady gaga, an dmany other musicians as well as politicians like mitt romney have done it to give your profile and your band an artificial boost.

Puck U: Yeah right, I had to look up that Danny Gare was the old captain of the Red Wings. (sarcasm) Yes, I did copy and paste the rest of the answer, since her question wasn’t exact…..because there were MANY captains before Yzerman. If I would have gone from memory, I probably would have had the years all wrong, and forgotten some of the multiple captains from the 70’s, and totally been clueless pre-Ted Lindsay era.
I am not looking to give a history lesson, but rather give a correct answer. I initially simply put, Danny Gare, but then I realized the question was not specific as to what captain.
By the way, I would never use that pathetic excuse for a website called Wikipedia…..and I find that to be the biggest insult to your answer. What did I ever do to you?

Social Media Marketing is more involved than just Facebook, in my opinion. Depending on what your business is, I feel there are very different levels of ROI that can be seen. Some business models definitely work better in the social media world than others.

To effectively use Social Media, you need to dedicate resources to be active in the social communities. Facebook pages are great, and Facebook ads can work, but if you are not actively engaging with your fans, and posting updates and valuable things to your Fans, then it does not accomplish much. If you can give online coupon codes to your fans, or promote new products that will add value to your users, then it can be valuable.

Same goes for Twitter. Having a Twitter account can be a really interesting way to interact with people. Resources like TweetDeck can help you monitor your brand, and specific keywords across twitter. If you have a brand people are talking about, you can monitor it, and reach out to people, either thanking them for the mention, or responding to any negative feedback that might be out there. If you actively monitor this “Noise” about your brand, it can be a really powerful marketing tool (again, within the right industry).

I have found that this seems to be most effective in B2C markets. B2B markets are a bit tougher to utilize these sites, but it can be done, if you commit to it.

Other effective social media sites to think about are things like YouTube. Videos don’t need to be professional quality, but just be interesting or fun. Having a blog is a great way to produce valuable content and interact with your customers. There are a million other community type sites, you just have to look for them. It has become so popular, that many of these sites are forming communities around specific industries. You just have to look for your community, and be active. That is the key to Social Media.

I have also found it is hard to have an agency handle this type of marketing for you. Take it in-house, and you will have a much more real feel to your interactions, and give people insight into your company and the culture of the employees and company itself.

Long response. Sorry, but hopefully some of it is helpful for you. Good luck if you decide to go down this route.

5 Tips for Writing the Perfect Blog Post
If you use WordPress, or Blogger, or any other modern blogging tool for that matter, the search engines are “pinged” and know right away that you have made a post. So, don’t worry about submitting it to search engines manually (and for heaven’s sake, don’t pay someone who claims to do that)!

In general, the best method nowadays is to generate some social traffic. Post a link to you post to Facebook, Twitter, pin your post’s featured image to Pinterest.


Catchy Headlines
Business Models are simulations of actual business functioning.
They act as ideal real life examples,and help participants actively discuss the pros and cons of the situation given.

A business Model gives a Full Account of any particular Business Scenario. Readers of this model/ Participants are then asked to discuss the strengths and weaknessess of it. Put it simply, one has to SWOT analyze the Business Model based on different parameters.

Each participant comes up with his/her own views on the subject. Cumulative views and different view points are then listed and ranked based on their importance and relevance.

Thus at the end of the session, a business models suitability and viability is drafted and conclusions are drawn thereon.

The more the Business Model Analysis a person does, the more exposed he gets to real life corporate situations.
Hence it is said, that Business Models act as Good Simulators.


Search Engine Optimization
A search engine is a service provided by some company (Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, etc.) which will search through millions of web pages for keywords that a person types into a field. For instance, if I type “Puppy” into a search box on Google’s web site, there are currently 40,800,000 matches available. If the search provider has a good search algorithm in their software, then the most relevant pages should be listed first. In my case, I’m a happy searcher, because after the Google Image samples, the first result listed is the Puppy Linux website, which is the only Puppy I would ever be searching for online. Most search providers keep track of what websites people will actually visit after doing a search. They then use the results to make sure those pages are closer to the top of the list for the next time someone searches for the same keyword(s).

Image search optimization is about using images on your website to draw more “click-throughs” from the search provider, thereby raising your rank in the search list. This, in turn, helps to ensure that you keep getting more visits to your site. A neat article I just found by typing “image search optimization” into Google Search is linked below.
