COMMIT to your target audience… and keywords! Give it a YEAR. #longterm commitments are KEY. via @SuzRoy #tsa20k

This is so true. As I tell people all the time, online marketing isn’t lightning in a bottle, it’s a marathon race that takes time, endurance and patience.

Marketing is a marathon! Stay focused for at least a year!! Via @SuzRoy #tsa20k

Wow, maybe Teri was reading my mind? It takes time people.

Success doesnt happen overnight! Stick with it. #tsa20k

@darinpersinger taking it down to the basics…funny how well the basics actually work…why make it so hard on yourself? #tsa20k

Sometimes we try to over complicate things in our online business. It’s the basic foundations that make things work.

Lesley LambertLesley Lambert – @LesleyLambert
Contacting sphere of influence still key. Don’t use the script “who do you know who”. @darinpersinger #tsa20k

People don’t like being “sold to” so don’t try it anymore, it really doesn’t work well.

@darinpersinger “Engage your sphere of influence. Contribute and provide value.” #tsa20k

Very true, give up trying to sell, and give the consumer what they want. It will make your online business much more valuable.

Have you “Allowed Subscribers” on Facebook yet? Check here: http://t.co/RIu5YBnC via @Chris_Smth #tsa20k

If you are not putting out quality content no one will want to subscribe to you @Chris_Smth #tsa20k

This is true to everything you do online. If you don’t give value, you won’t gain consumers trust.

An impersonal profile pic on your FB page is a huge waste of space @JimmyMackin #tsa20k

I’d also add that the profile picture should be a photo of you. Not the dog, cat, sky, or a cartoon. If I don’t know you and can’t see a photo of you, I will not connect with you.

RT @lauriewdavis: if you have a photo strip – put your branding there as well @JimmyMackin #Tsa20k

The photo strip is a great place to brand your page even more.

@TeriConrad @jimmymackin @brandpreneur #tsa20k so true about logo – and also use non-pixelated imagery and sized appropriately so not warped

If you want to set up a skyscraper style avatar, the best dimensions is 180 x 540. Also, make sure you set the thumbnail image so that it makes sense to those seeing your updates in the stream.

RT @debra11: Even if you do NOT use Google+… you MUST fill out your G+ profile. VERY IMPORTANT in the land of “search”. #tsa20k

Of course Google+ profiles will be huge to your SEO rankings. They are owned by Google!

@jimmymackin @Chris_Smth don’t spend ALL day on Facebook but spend EVERYDAY on Facebook…#tsa20k

Very true. While you don’t need to spend hours at a time online, you need to at least try to do it on a daily basis.

YES YES YES RT @debra11: REAL engagement. REAL value. REAL connections. Be REAL online. PLEASE. #tsa20k
