26 Tips: My Latest A-Z Social Media Guide & Other News

I’m pleased to have my 14th article on Social Media Examiner (SME) today!  If you’ve found your way here as a result of seeing the post on SME, welcome and thank you for visiting.

By Way of Background:
My first post was published on SME back on October 27, 2010 and since that time I’ve written a series of 26 tips, A-Z guides about Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn,blogs, lead generation, video, customer service, images, mobile apps, google+, pinterest, gamification, and now, location-based marketing.

I’ve been writing about social media for the past five years and have seen tremendous advances in that time. It’s always a challenge to keep up, but there’s something incredibly gratifying about continuing to learn something that feels very much like a moving target.

I also write regularly for GigCoin and you can check-out my latest post, How To: Extend Your Blogging Reach.

Other News:
This past week, I’ve also had the honor of being selected as a finalist in a short memoir contest on Biographile for my essay, Who Among Us. The contest is still going on and if you’re so inclined you can read the piece and vote for me by selecting the Facebook “like” widget on the page.

Non-fiction writing and memoir in particular has had a special place in my heart the past number of years, and I’m thrilled to have received recognition for this piece which is in memory of and a tribute to the ten women of the Tuesday, Writing for Wellness Group at Facing Cancer Together, who I had the distinct pleasure to know and write with.

I remember them.

Location-Based Services

This past week I wrote about Location-Based Services and the Factors and Considerations for B2C and B2B Marketers for a new post on GigCoin’s Blog.

This past week I wrote about Location-Based Services and the Factors and Considerations for B2C and B2B Marketers for a new post on GigCoin’s Blog. Personally I have only used FourSquare once and haven’t tried Gowalla or any of the other popular location based services.

I had an opportunity to ask questions of Aaron Strout and Simon Salt who have both written books on the topic and also spoke to a number of business people about the ways they have used location services for their businesses.

I did learn a lot about the future of location-based marketing and would like to share it with you. You can read the full post on GigCoin’s blog.

Have you been using location-based services? What do you think about using them for marketing for your business?
