Social Media Tools to Save Time and Improve Effectiveness

Social Media Tools to Save Time and Improve Effectiveness

Social Media Tools to Save Time and Improve Effectiveness

As I was researching for this article I noticed that several people (most noticeably Honey Singh of honeytech blog and Jeff Bullas) had already written some excellent articles about the same subject. And I, being prudent and not wanting to reinvent the wheel- or try to think of a new way to present this material- decided that I would give you my take on the subject in a condensed version and link you to some of the most helpful articles I have found. But you will have to read my newsletter for those links. Please sign up to receive it on my website.

Before I get into the meat of the topic I just wanted to say that this probably will not be the last time I address social media tools. Social media is a fast growing and quickly changing field and new and better tools and apps are being created all the time. Just a few days ago (as of this writing) both Google and Facebook announced their own URL shorteners. These are the nifty little tools that take those long URLs such as this and turn them into neatly packaged links like this that will fit inside a tweet (because Twitter only allows you 140 characters per tweet). I use because it comes with my chosen Twitter client, Hootsuite, and because it is trackable.

Hootsuite and

Hootsuite is my favorite social media tool. I use this practically every day. Hootsuite is a client manager that manages post or updates (called Tweets on Twitter) to your Twitter account. At least that was the original use. It has since evolved into managing posts for other social media accounts as well when integrated with more on that in just a moment.

Schedule Your Updates

There are two really terrific time saving features in Hootsuite. The first is that you can schedule your tweets with Hootsuite. If you have information that you would like to post several times (such as a new promotion that your business is running) you can create one or two Tweets about that and schedule them to be sent out over a period of a few hours, days, or even weeks. Just make sure you copy the tweet so you can paste it back into the update area without having to retype it every time. You can also write several different tweets at one sitting (or find material to retweet) and schedule these so they are tweeted later- you don’t want to bombard your followers with too much information at one time. Also, studies have shown that there are optimum times in which to tweet something because tweets at those times are more likely to be read and retweeted, helping increase awareness of your update or post.

One Post, Many Places

The second major time saving feature is that Hootsuite integrates with will send you tweets, updates, posts, etc. directly to dozens of social media networks. Of course, you have to setup accounts with those various social media networks and give permission to post through them, but once you have done these two steps you can simply post to either directly or to Hootsuite and that post will be broadcast to all of those social media networks. This is a tremendous time saver for me and why I absolutely love these two tools! I use them to broadcast to multiple networks from one location and with one post.

Take Control

Another related feature I like about Hootsuite is that I can decide which posts I want rebroadcast through and which I want solely broadcast on Twitter by selecting with a check mark my icon on Hootsuite. If I do this Hootsuite will broadcast to and through However, if I leave it unchecked it will broadcast only to Twitter. Additionally, there are other ways to manage which posts go to which social media networks by using hashtags (the # symbol). If you want Twitter to post to your Linkedin account, simply append the hashtag #li or hashtag #in to your tweets and they will be posted to Linkedin as well (but only if you setup Linkedin and Twitter to work this way- call me directly if you need more help with this). Facebook and Twitter can also be linked together to post to either and broadcast to the other but if you use it is much simpler. And many people, me included, do not want to post the same information to their friends and family on Facebook that they do on Twitter and elsewhere. Using Hootsuite and gives you more control over this but it will require you to log in and post updates to your personal Facebook profile separately. FYI, you can post to your business’s Facebook fan page without posting to your personal Facebook page.

Easy Links

There are a couple of other features I want to quickly mention. Hootsuite comes with a URL shortener that will take your website or any webpage’s URL and change it to a much shorter URL so that it fits more easily with the 140 character guidelines Twitter and other networks place on you. To use it you simply copy the long URL and paste it into Hootsuite’s shortener (which sits on the page directly beneath the posting area) and click on the button that says “Shrink it” and it viola- the URL is now shorter and trackable.

Track It

Trackability is my next favorite feature of Hootsuite. Once your URLs are shortened, Hootsuite can track anytime someone clinks on the link. This allows you to track which posts are most popular so you can create more like them. I also use another little trick that helps me know which time of day a post gets the most clicks. I schedule the exact same post to be delivered multiple times in a day- or over several days- and I use the URL shortener each time I create a post. This changes the short URL which has a different tracking code, meaning it tracks each post separately and does not lump them all into the same category. I then simply track each link to see which one receives the most clicks.

That’s enough from me on this subject for the moment. Read the accompanying articles for more information and look for future updates and articles on social media tools in the future. I will be talking more about these in future articles and blog posts and posting links to other articles as new tools become available (or as I become aware of them). Also, be sure to follow my tweets on Twitter and my updates on my Facebook fan page for more helpful social media tips, tricks, and tools or give me a call or email for more specific advice.

Tools to Help Folks with ADHD

Tools to Help Folks with ADHD

ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a well-known disorder that has gained attention and ground over the past few decades. With research old enough to now give the general public a new view on this disorder, there are no longer only mainstream pharmaceutical remedies to assist those who deal with ADHD. Thankfully, individuals now have ample tips and tools to assist in managing and organizing. Here are a few tools to help people with ADHD better manage the tasks of life and work.

At work, one of the best tools ever invented is the badge reel. Especially for those who may easily forget where they put small items like their keys or employee identification, the badge reel is ideal. But even better than just having a place to secure identification while at work, badge reels and lanyards now come in a wide range of styles, with BooJee Beads decorative pieces being some of the most popular.

BooJee Beads decorative lanyards and badge holders fit every personality, every season and every mood. Smart and affordable, a BooJee Beads piece is the way to go when you don’t want to display identification in a plain plastic badge reel case. There is no reason to forego style when adding organization to work attire. These items are incredible for also holding keys. For those who find themselves misplacing small items such as keys on a regular basis, lanyards and badge reels with key attachments are the perfect accessory.

Time is a major factor for those with ADHD. To keep track of time at home or at work, there is a tech item called the Time Timer. This graphical clock helps in any situation where time needs to be watched. Instead of having the standard two hands, the Time Timer shows time passing as a red pie that gets larger as the minutes tick by. With this tool, the student with ADHD can easily see how much time they have left to complete a task. Not just for students, however, the Time Timer can be used at home and at work as well.

Once you arrive home from work, there are still plenty of tasks to accomplish. For those with ADHD, one thing that is often easily overlooked is closing the garage door at night. It is easy to forget to close the garage door when you’re working hard to remember to feed the dog, make dinner and put away the groceries. So there is now a gadget to help ensure the safety of your possessions and person that may work with most types of automatic garage doors. The automatic garage door closer is a tool that can make an enormous difference in the life of a person who struggles with this particular task time and time again.

Living with ADHD does not have to be a hassle. With so many useful tips and tools, people with this disorder can gain organizational skills to ensure both home and career run smoothly. If you have ADHD, or know someone who does, perhaps one of these tools will make a difference in your life.

Carpet Repair Tools and Tips

Carpet Repair Tools and Tips

When it comes to carpet repair, home improvement shows make doing it yourself sound so easy. While carpet repair isn’t rocket science there is often a little more to it than you might imagine.  With the proper tools and these simple tips you have everything needed to determine whether to do-it-yourself or call a professional.

The Right Tools for the Job

Before beginning any home improvement project make sure you have the right tools for the job. Common carpet repair tools include:

·         Carpet Kicker: if you have to ask what it is then chances are you don’t know how to use one. Call a professional instead.

·         Knee Pads: Doing the job alone doesn’t save money if you need a visit to the chiropractor afterwards. Invest in quality knee pads.

·         Power Stretcher: This is like a heavy jack created just for carpets. It can be rented but be sure you understand how to use it properly to avoid major problems like huge tears in the carpet or holes in the walls.

·         Seam Tape and Iron: Unless you plan to live with a job that looks like a mosaic, seam tape and an iron are essential to a finished appearance.

·         Tackless Strip: These inexpensive strips of wood look like a method of torture designed to inflict small holes in  your hands; which is exactly what they will do while you tack the carpet down. Buy good gloves!

The Right Time for the Project

In addition to the right tools make sure you allow enough time to finish the work properly. Don’t rely upon professional estimates unless you do this for a living. Otherwise, chances are it will take you double to triple the normal amount of time to do the job right.

The Right Spot

Before making any large repairs test your work in an out of the way location like a closet; make sure you are comfortable with the work and that it holds up to normal wear and tear before moving on to more ambitious areas.

The Berber Factor

Berber carpet repair is not for the beginner. Despite its popularity, berber comes in many styles and fiber types which can be difficult to work with and even more costly to repair should large mistakes be made. From melting to huge ravel problems, consider calling a professional berber carpet repair service unless you are highly experienced in dealing with carpets.

The Right Person for the Job

Sometimes the right person for the job is a professional. Calculate the full cost of doing it yourself; including tool rentals and purchase, time and quality of workmanship then pick up the phone and call a reputable Dallas carpet repair, Berber carpet repair provider like Kiwi Services for a quote. You might find it is the best way to save time and money on a quality carpet repair!

Some Online Tools to Increase the Number of Customers Your Restaurant

Some Online Tools to Increase the Number of Customers Your Restaurant

In this economic downturn, restaurateurs either spend more money on promotion or spend less and invest more time in contacting people, or shut the door and turn off the lights. No doubt, second choice seems to be safer. Create new ways of connecting with fans and customers and provide them with good stuff.
Here are some fruitful tips to increase the visibility of your restaurant on Internet, leading towards a significant improvement in the number of customers to your restaurant.

Post Updates on Twitter: As we all know that Twitter is creating buzz in the online arena. It is a very fast and effective way to communicate with people. You have to just post your restaurant’s latest news, updates, new offers and discounts etc. to keep people aware of your restaurant’s operations.
Reach Professional Customers with Linkedin: Professional customers prefer Linkedin over other social networking sites. You can connect with like-minded professionals who like to eat and drink out. If you’re in a business location, this can be an excellent way to build contacts and list events. It can even be used for recruitment.
Create a Group on Facebook: You can use Facebook as another medium of promoting your restaurant. Create a group/community for your restaurant on Facebook and invite people to join it. You can message them directly and let them share online.
Create a Blog for Your Restaurant Website: A Blog is an online medium in the form of a personal website where you can post regular entries related to restaurant operations, descriptions of restaurant events, or other material such as restaurants pictures or video.
Share Restaurant Photos Online: Online photo galleries are one of the most popular online promotion medium. People would like to see the photos of the events; food items etc. of your restaurant and would be obliged to visit your restaurant frequently.
Include Local Area in Restaurant Map: Promoting your local area can be almost as important as promoting your restaurant. Google maps allow you to create a map with your choice of locations, walks and sightseeing. Naturally, your own business will feature prominently in the middle.

MeroSys, the trusted name in online food ordering systems, was designed specifically for the restaurant industry to allow restaurants and cafes to display their menus online. MeroSys is completely customizable, unlike other online food ordering systems. Visit our website: Online Restaurant Ordering System to see a complete online demo.

Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet Tips

When it comes to choosing a fantasy football cheat sheet the rule of thumb is to pick the one that mirrors your league’s scoring system. A cheat sheet is only valuable if it directly relates to you.  For example, if you play in a league where passing touchdowns are worth only 3 points, a cheat sheet that is based on passing touchdowns being worth 6 points is worthless to you.  If you want the competitive edge know your scoring system backwards and forwards.  Most of your fellow league mates will not take the time to do this because they are lazy, stupid or don’t care about winning, but when you fully understand the scoring system, you will have a better idea of which positions are top priority and which ones can wait. ?
The Social Aspect of Fantasy Football

The majority of fantasy football fanatics enjoy playing with friends and family the most because giving your buddies the smack down is a great feeling! Competing with and against friends that love the game as much as you is one of the greatest aspects of fantasy football. Whether you play FOX, ESPN or Yahoo fantasy football, chose online tools that will benefit you the most and allow you to dominate this season!
