How To Add A Facebook Like Box To Your Email Signature

People are always looking for ways to increase the exposure of their Facebook page and attract new people to it. One simple way is to utilize all the assets that you have and with your company sending out hundreds of emails every single day it is wise to have a link to your Facebook page in your email signature. A new extension to an already popular plugin called Wisestamp (which we first covered over 2 years ago) now allows you to add a full Facebook box to your email

People are always looking for ways to increase the exposure of their Facebook page and attract new people to it. One simple way is to utilize all the assets that you have and with your company sending out hundreds of emails every single day it is wise to have a link to your Facebook page in your email signature. A new extension to an already popular plugin called Wisestamp (which we first covered over 2 years ago) now allows you to add a full Facebook box to your email signatures. It’s a browser plugin so you will have to go through a couple of very simple install steps but once you do and you connect your Facebook page you can then choose which of the pages or personal profiles that you manage that you would most like to set up and pull in automatically. You can also add Twitter accounts, RSS feeds to pull in your latest blog posts or a whole host of other social profiles. Once you’ve set it up the hard work is done and every time you send an email it will be automatically pulled in for you.

Is Social Media Bringing An End To The 9-5

I’ve noticed that people have started working in a different way in the last couple of years. The 9 to 5 is something pretty much consigned to the past as we all live in an uber-connected world that is changing by the minute. We get annoyed if we can’t get good customer service within minutes online. Most of us answer multiple work emails while sitting on the couch using our smart phones. The services that we use now all live in the cloud and we are only ever 1 click away form getting to something work related. This huge advance in technology also comes at a time when we are all having to work harder for less money given the economic climate and at the same time our connections are growing larger thanks to social networks. So what are the shifts in technology that are bringing about this change in work culture and is the traditional 9 to 5 dead?

Once A Like Not Always A Like On Facebook

The race is on for Facebook likes. Every brand, small business and individual around the world are looking for them but I wanted to have a look at what happens after you get those elusive likes. Nobody thinks about what happens to the likes that they already have with most just looking at the top line figure. I wanted to ask…Do people who like your page automatically see your content? How many people are un-liking your page? Are people hiding your content or are they just ignoring you? Getting likes on Facebook is as easy as paying a few cents per like (and you can be sure at that price they are not worth much) but the real challenge is keeping them and making sure you engage with the people who like your page through lasting content. So here is how Facebook determines just what you see each time you log in to Facebook…

3 Tools That Let You Escape Social Media

You know the drill….Twitter, email, Tweetdeck, Youtube and round and round. It happens every single day of the week all over the world as our attention spans get shorter and shorter. It’s very hard for all of us to work when we are only ever a notification or a ping away from getting interrupted. Even if you actually vow to switch it all off you’ll more often than not find yourself clicking back in for that one sneaky look that inevitably takes you off on another merry go round of social media goodness. So with that in mind I wanted to find 3 simple tools that let you escape it all and actually physically took control of your computer as if you were in the online version of rehab for a couple of hours.

A Year In Stats For A Social Media Blog – Analyzing The Trends

I’m obsessed by stats. I follow all sorts of trends online and always like to have as much information as possible. If there is one thing that annoys me it is how secretive websites and blogs are with their traffic stats and if there is one thing that I’d love to open source and let everybody have open access to it would be website traffic. With that In mind I thought I’d have a look at our own site and see what sort of traffic trends we experienced throughout 2010. I wanted to see in particular what sort of an effect social media had on traffic here and which of the big social networks sent the most traffic. Ours is a small blog that is 18 months old and last year saw some good growth so I also hope to show with these stats the potential growth curve there for others starting their own blogs and show what channels work best and should be focused on. Here are the stats (Google Analytics) for the Simply Zesty blog for the entire year of 2010….

8 Things That Need To Happen In Social Media In 2011

Twitter Monetization

Twitter can still claim that they are in their growth phase but with a recent round of funding valuing them at close to 4 billion they need to start thinking about monetization very soon. They’ve had a spectacular year of growth and Twitter continues to be one of the most useful tools around that many of us simply could not live without for a number of seasons but they are a business at the end of the day and they simply can’t keep burning through cash at the rate they are if they are to succeed long term. They’ve tried a couple of things over the last year with limited success but they need to find that automated self serve ad platform like Google and Facebook have in place that generates them billions in revenue over the coming years. They have the users and enough smart people working there to do it so my guess is that by the end of 2011 they’ll start to get there.

It’s been a great year in 2010 for social media where the industry has really burst in to the mainstream and been embraced by brands and business but I wanted to look at some of the main things that need to happen in 2011 for the progress to continue. The main social networks are covered here as well as looking at some of the bigger industry trends and all in all I’d have to say social media as an industry is in great health and if anything I’d say it’s at the very start of it’s growth and 2011 should really go on and re-enforce that and see some exciting things happening.

QR Codes – Smart Technology Or A Marketing Fad?

On the way to work today I counted 6 QR codes. I saw a couple in my morning newspaper, some on billboards and and one outside a shop. It’s clear that this relatively new technology is being embraced in marketing circles with some gusto but I wanted to ask are QR codes a useful technology that will be around for a generation or are they a passing fad? We have written about some fairly innovative ways in which QR codes are being used here in the past but are they actually working and does the man in the street understand the technology? Are we seeing a new trend emerge that will be around for generations to come on lots of physical products or is this a fad that will be gone this time next year?
Proliferation Of Smart Phones

The main reason that we are all starting to use QR codes is because so many more of us now have smart phones that are able to read the QR codes. The technology is hardly
