Back Up Your Facebook Account

More and more, we do things online or through the cloud. Even if we are not working online, most of us engage with others online, and we store many important things there, such as photos, videos, even conversations. One such place is Facebook. Most of us have a Facebook account and use it regularly. The downside to doing things online and in the cloud is that what is stored there may be at risk of loss. Accounts can get hacked, servers can go down, things can get accidentally deleted, and sometimes, as they say, “life happens.” It is important that we back up our digital information on a regular basis. Many of us back our computers up, and a few of us back our websites or blogs up. For my WordPress sites, I use WP Twin. It is amazing and works very well as a WordPress back up solution for blogs and websites. However, we forget about other online spaces, such as Facebook. In fact, I have discovered that a large number of people do not even know Facebook has a built-in back up solution available. It is called “Facebook Archive.” It saves our photos, videos, posts, messages and more. This is an important feature for everyone, but especially for people who use Facebook to communicate with clients and customers. Increasingly, I see professionals, such as Realtors, using Facebook for business communications with their clients. Wouldn’t it be great to have a permanent record of those conversations? Even if the record was used only as a memory refresher it would be helpful, but it could also be useful to...

One is Greater Than Zero

I ran across the following video from Gary Vaynerchuk.​It is less than 3 minutes and I highly recommend watching it. It is quite inspiring!​Sometimes as marketers we skip over the little things.

Gary explains why that's a bad idea and shows, by his own example, the way to grow and succeed by doing the little things.Click here for Gary's blog post with the original posting of this video.​Please leave a comment below with your thoughts on the topic!​​​If you like this page, please...

2 New Products – Facebook Groups and Market Research

I released two products yesterday: A report on running and growing Facebook Groups and a full course on doing conducting profitable Market Research. I have listed them on the Products page, but today's post will contain a more in-depth look at them.​If these look of interest to you, feel free to get them, or if you know of anyone who might enjoy these, please share this page. If you are a marketer, and see that these are a good fit for your list, the affiliate links are on the Products page under the individual listings.Facebook Groups for Fun and Profit​​This report came about because I mentioned in one of the marketing forums I belong to, Earn1kADay Insider's Club, that I ran several Facebooks Groups, and some of them were quite large. In fact, I run about a dozen of them, either on my own, or with others. The smallest only has a few members, the largest has almost 28,000 as of this writing. Most have between several hundred and a few thousand.The questions were asked: How did I grow them so large, and how did I manage them​ with so many members?I started to write a reply, and realized it was not a quick answer​. I decided to create the report, as I am sure others would like to know this information as well.​In Facebook Groups for Fun and Profit, I share how to set up a Facebook Group. I also include a companion guide that has all of the FAQ items from the Facebook support site, so anyone who has never done this before, or who hasn't used...
