Social Media Marketing Seminar by Ed Sykes

Social Media Marketing Seminar by Ed Sykes

I had a great time today presenting business social media marketing secrets today with business owners at Norfolk State University.   It was sponsored by the City of Norfolk Department of Economic Development. The audience members were engaged, motivated, and ready to make a difference for their businesses.

Some of the subjects covered in this seminar were the following:

  • Keyword Optimization
  • Search Engine Optimization
  • Blog and Content Development
  • Facebook FanPage Usage
  • Article Marketing
  • Video Marketing
  • Press Release Marketing

I showed audience members how to break away from traditional marketing and look forward to using 21st century social media marketing techniques.  These business owners enjoyed the real life examples I showed them through stories, examples, and videos.

My session was recorded and will be shown on TV-48 sometime in October. I will keep you posted!

StumbleUpon, Digg, and Reddit…The Advantages of Using Them to Market Your Website!

Stumbleupon, bookmarketing, social media marketing, Ed Sykes, social media coach, va, virginia beach, hampton roads, chesapeake, blog traffic guruStumbleUpon, Digg, and Reddit are excellent resources for sharing your content with users.  These sites are what are called social bookmarking sites.  You place your content on their sites so that other interested users can share your content with their users.  Hence, if you have valuable products or services, you can share these items on StumbleUpon, Digg, and Reddit along with other social bookmarking sites so that your items receive exposure.

Let’s look at the advantages of using StumbledUpon and Digg…

StumbleUpon and Digg uses ratings to form collaborative opinions on website quality and content. When you “stumble” or “digg” content, you will only see pages that friends and like-minded people have recommended. These sites help you get your great content found that searchers probably wouldn’t find using a search engine to look up.

What this means is by registering for an account with them you are able to add their toolbar to your browser menu and “Stumble” or “Digg” websites. By doing this, the sites that you add will show up in StumbledUpon and Digg’s search pages and stream. This will give your content additional traffic from users of these as well as give you additional links so your content will be indexed from search engines more rapidly.
