What does AuthorRank have to do with SEO?

I just finished reading the article What is AuthorRank? and really enjoyed the infographic they have set up there.

As I’ve been working on building up an SEO company and providing other businesses with these services over at Brain Smart SEO, I thought I should learn about this and even share what I was learning… Okay, maybe I’m a little obsessed and want to dominate the first page of Google for my clients. There…I said it.

Anyway, after learning about the benefits of AuthorRank and how easily it can be added to your websites I decided to create a video tutorial on how to do it.

How to Connect With Your Customers on Social Media

A common question that people have when they are learning about implementing social media into their business is:

How do I find where my customers are?

This is a great question and there is really only one way to find out. You can spend time asking all of your customers where they spend time, but that can be time consuming. Time is our most valuable asset so we don’t want you wasting your time.

There is a shortcut to finding where your audience is right now and I’m going to share with you the easiest way to find this out.

As a small business owner, you should have a rolodex that has your entire customer database. Find your top 1,000 customers and prospects and take their email addresses from this rolodex. (No, you won’t be spamming them!)

Your next step is to create a brand new gmail account (they’re free) and to load all of these emails into your new gmail account. Your next step is to go to each of the social networks Facebook, Twitter, etc and sign up for them. It’s going to ask you if you’d like to find your friends using your address book, you are going to select gmail and count the number of people in your customer database that are on each service.

If your customers are already on Twitter, you should spend some time connecting with them on twitter. If they are on Facebook, but not on LinkedIn then you should spend more time on Facebook instead of LinkedIn.

The secret is to find where they already are and to make it convenient for them to communicate with you through these networks.

How are you making it easy for your customers to communicate with you?
