Everypost, the social media management tool, adds Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+ Pages

I’ve talked before about Everypost, and labeled it “THE personal social media management tool.” Now, Everypost supports business pages on Facebook, LinkedIn and even Google+. Is this a game changer?

Mike Allton‘s insight:

Everypost now supports Pages for Google+, Facebook & LinkedIn

Is this a game changer?

Everypost is a mobile app that allows you to share status updates to multiple social networks simultaneously. The folks at +Everypost have just added support for Google+ Pages, Facebook Pages and LinkedIn Company Pages. That, combined with the app’s ability to customize each status update for each network before sending, makes it a social media management tool worth considering, don’t you think?

If you’ve never heard of Everypost, you’re in for a treat. Check it out, and let me know if you agree with my assessment from a business perspective (I have already dubbed Everypost THE social media management tool for personal use).

I also outlined several use cases for Everypost for both business and personal – what might you add?

Thanks, enjoy your weekend, and #GoBucks!

Feeding off Each Other: How to Combine Social Media with Ecommerce

If you’re selling products online, you may be struggling with how to work social media into your marketing strategy. Sharing your latest specials just won’t work. Here are 5 ideas for you.

Mike Allton‘s insight:

Using Social Media to Support Ecommerce

Do you have an online store? If so, you’ve probably noticed that getting traction for your store on social media can be challenging. Business owners that treat Facebook and Google+ as simple advertising venues to spam their latest specials go nowhere fast.

Developing relationships and engaging customers on social media is a slow process. It can be extremely rewarding, but should never be confused with more traditional marketing methods.

However, there are other ways that businesses can use social media to market to potential customers and drive traffic to their online stores and products. Guest writer+Rohan Ayyar walks us through several ways that businesses can combine social media with ecommerce and get results. With Cyber Monday coming up fast, now’s the time to jump on these techniques.

Should You Blog On Holidays?

Whether or not to write and publish a new blog post on a holiday may seem like an obvious answer to some, but the fact is, there may be a number of benefits that warrant consideration.

Mike Allton‘s insight:

Is anybody reading my Holiday blog post?

If you’ve ever published a blog post on a holiday, you may have been wondering that very thought. Was it a waste of time? Should you have been basting your turkey instead?

In fact, most bloggers simply assume that the answer will be no and choose not to publish at all. They assume that all of their readers are spending time with family and friends, and are too busy to read or hop online.

I think they’re wrong.

I think that, while normal businesses should absolutely not publish on holidays, full-time bloggers need to give it careful consideration.

To demonstrate, I’ve published this article on Thanksgiving, and outlined a number of questions to ask yourself when deciding whether or not to publish, as well as steps to take to ensure that your Holiday Blog post is just as successful as on any other day.

Please read the full post: http://www.thesocialmediahat.com/article/should-you-blog-holidays 

What about you? Have you ever blogged on a holiday? How did it go?

Now, I do wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving! I’m so thankful for each of you, and appreciate that you’ve taken the time to read and talk to me about this article and so many others. I will be spending the day with family, but I also consider many of you family and will be here on Google+ throughout the day. Enjoy!

Google+ for iOS Continues to Improve

Google released a nice little update to the iOS version of the Google+ mobile app, and it included quite a few improvements, both documentation and undocumented.

Mike Allton‘s insight:

Do you want to see your Google+ friends near you?
 …and do you want them to see you?

You may not have noticed, but there was an update to Google+ for iOS pushed out over the weekend that added quite a few changes and updates.

1. The new notification system was brought to mobile.
2. Comment translations were added to mobile.
3. Images are now backed up in full resolution.
4. And Location Sharing…

Using your app, you can check out where your Google+ friends are, and they can see where you are.

Fortunately, this isn’t Facebook. The permissions aren’t set to Share All or anything like that. You have to expressly grant permission for individuals or circles to be able to see where you’re at. It’s more like Find Friends for iOS.

But for those interested in enabling and using this feature, it’s pretty interesting! If I’m planning a trip to Southern California, I can see if anyone I’ve circled is out there whom I might want to schedule a meeting with. Or if I’m rooting for my St. Louis Blues to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight, I might message a few of my friends in Toronto and talk some trash. Or I might just check to see if my Mom is home and available to Hangout with her granddaughter.

Check out the article before for more details on all of the new features and updates, and specific information on Location Sharing, including how to use it and how to adjust your settings.

Do you think you’ll enable Location Sharing? What other uses can you think of?

Thanks!
