How to Generate Ideas to Write about On Your Blog Through AWeber

Are you looking for ideas to write about on your blog, check out this video by Problogger Darren Rowse by clicking here.  In the video, he mentions using AWeber for your newsletter.  I use AWeber and think it has some great advantages.  To see my links for the newsletters from AWeber, click here.   Feel free to sign up for my newsletters to see the format in which they are delivered.  They create very professional looking newsletters.  I highly recommend them.

Bring Traffic to Your Page by Creating Custom Text in Facebook

Mashable.com has a great article you should check out about creating a landing page in Facebook.   If you have an individual page set up for your business on Facebook, I recommend reading their article about promoting that page by clicking here

If you are in Facebook, look up Static FBML in the search bar at the top and add it to your page.  You can simply go into edit your page to add HTML text.  It is like the WordPress widget text box.  In Facebook, it will put a tab on the top of your page and you can put in text just like you would into any HMTL text screen.  I found it very useful to add the icons where they can follow me at other locations such as Twitter, Linkedin, etc.  To see my example page, click here.

Top 5 Ways You Should Be Using Linkedin To Find A Job

 

  1.  Input a presentation from Google Docs to showcase your abilities. It is simple to create presentations in Google Docs that are very similar to a PowerPoint presentation.  There is an application you can add within Linkedin that allows you to access the Google Docs presentation.  When your contacts look at your profile page, they will be able to see your presentation.
  2. Use the Question and Answer section to either ask a question and get connected or answer a question and become an expert.  If you go to the “More” tab and pick Answers, you will find this section.  Then click on Career and Education.  You can look for topics that may help you with your career search, ask a question or answer one. Every time you answer a question and someone picks your answer as the best answer, you get one point toward being someone listed with expertise.  You will notice tabs for open questions, closed questions and experts.  Becoming an expert can help promote your skills to more people and open up more job options for you.
  3. Be sure you have combined your outgoing messages your post on your home page with Twitter.  There is a little box you need to check to be sure that any updates you post will not only get posted on Linkedin but also on your Twitter page.  If you do not have a Twitter page, it is easy to set up and free. Just go to Twitter.com.
  4. Import your WordPress blog into Linkedin.  Just as you were able to include Google Docs through adding an application, you can do the same for your blog.  In this way, people will be able to see your blog on your profile page. 
  5. Check out all of the extra add-on applications that are available including:  Polls, Google Presentation, Blog Link, Box-Net, Portfolio Display, SlideShare Presentations, SAP Community Bio, Company Buzz, My Travel, Reading List, Huddle Workspaces, Real Estate Pro, Tweets, Events, and Legal Updates.  If you have a lot of good multi-media to display, Portfolio Display would be a good addition.

Using Camtasia and Powerpoint to Make Videos for YouTube and Beyond

 

Ask Dr. Diane: How do you make those presentation videos that you put into your classrooms and here on your blog?

I personally use Camtasia and PowerPoint combined to create a lot of my presentations for my students. It is very simple to do. All that is required is to create a PowerPoint presentation as you normally would, then use Camtasia to record the voice over portion as if you were giving the presentation to a live audience. The software is simple to use and you can save it in different formats that are easy to upload to Youtube. For some information about Camtasia and its use, click here.

I teach a lot of online courses and find that this type of presentation is a great way to reach students who prefer more than simply reading directions on a screen. Camtasia will capture not only sound but can show your curser movement to explain directions in a way that is more effective to the visual and aural learner. For an example of these packages used together, click here.
