I Found a Cool Plugin for Comments That I Love (Facebook + Standard Comments)

supersoYou may have noticed the comment section looks a little different. As a blogger I’ve always loved Facebook comments because it can help you get more traffic to your posts. When someone posts a comment via Facebook comments (unless they uncheck the box) it gets posted to their wall.

The thing is, as a marketer reading other blogs I hate it when I only have the choice of Facebook comments. If I’m reading a blog about Doctor Who or video games I don’t mind if my comment gets posted on my profile but when I don’t really share marketing stuff with my friends and family. That goes on my Facebook page.

Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of discussion about using memes in your marketing. I actually just posted a poll about it in my Facebook group (which you’re welcome to join and participate in).

So, if you don’t know what a meme is they’re basically funny or relatable pictures with text on them. I’m sure you’ve seen some common memes such as:

Using Social Media to Promote Amazon Review Sites

socialmediaI’ve been discussing my newest Amazon review site, Smooth Blenders, with you guys off and on and I’ve mentioned most of my traffic comes through social networking and shares. It’s coming from Facebook (a little bit) and Pinterest (most of it). Honestly, the Pinterest traffic isn’t really from my own pin, it’s through other people pinning.

I got quite a few emails asking how I was getting traffic to a review site from social media. Quite a few people said they tried it but it didn’t work. Well, I’m going to give you a tip that will hopefully change the way you think of review sites and social media.

Bubblews Case Study Day 8

Mother’s Day has come and gone and I was so busy that I didn’t really get a new case study post up, but I did post a few more bubbles. They’re so quick to write…

Here are the new ones:

I’m a little disappointed in my earnings at the bank though…

Bubblews Case Study Day 3 – 5 New Bubbles and Bubblews F.A.Q.s

I’m on day 3 over at Bubblews and I wrote some more bubbles. The main reason I’ve been enjoying it is because the posts aren’t as in-depth as a blog post, but more in depth than the average FB post. It’s a great place to just write what you’re thinking. Some of my bubbles are giving me inspiration for full blog posts too.

Before I talk about my current balance and all of that, I’m going to answer a few questions I got in the comments

Q: How do you get paid if you can’t use affiliate links?

Bubblews Case Study Day 2 – I’ve Quadrupled My Balance

We’re on to day two of my Bubblews case study. Each day (don’t get mad if I miss a few here and there) until I get my first payment I’ll share what I did and a screenshot of my bank page.

So, the first thing I did was set up my profile. There is a bio box where you can talk about yourself and I wrote some stuff but it doesn’t seem to show up on my profile. I’m not sure what’s up with that.
