    There’s one system I wish I’d set up when I started blogging over 5 years ago. In that time I’ve written more than 200 articles about using social media, modern marketing techniques and email marketing to produce healthy growth and profits for small businesses and solo workers. Plus, I’ve written about systems, processes and mindset that help make the day-to-day of running a small business easier. Because it’s hard work creating a business you love that doesn’t take over your life! My greatest passion in work is putting solo workers in control and empowering them with the…

    Today we’re continuing our series on measuring social media where we’ll look at the biggest and still leading social network—Facebook. With 1.35 billion monthly active users to date, Facebook is instinctively the first social media channel that marketers latch on to. Facebook has practically covered everything when it comes to reaching your target audience. From the launch of that cover photo to recommended ads or related posts, they have made social media marketing relatively easy at first glance. Except that it’s not. Reaching your audience is not the same as engaging your audience.

  • Generic Emails No Longer Being Accepted

    Kristi Pavlik
    24 Sep 2014 | 5:02 am
    I received this great article from a colleague of mine, Sandra Martini.  In it she talks about how aWeber is no longer accepting generic emails such as “info@…”. If aWeber is doing it, you can bet the others (Infusionsoft, Mailchimp, etc.) will follow suit at some point if they have not done so already. To read the article, CLICK HERE. Note – if you are a Team Adonai client, we will be reaching out to you to talk about how this will affect your mailings and campaigns.

I've liked/followed the pages as my 'page' (VA biz) name and my settings are set to let anyone post to my page. Does anyone know how I can fix this?

We were going through the results of my blood tests, and I was hoping for a conclusive diagnosis that would explain mysterious symptoms I’d battled with for the past year. The specialist asked me hundreds of questions about my lifestyle, daily activities, my diet, sleeping patterns. The interrogation went on and on and on… ‘How many hours a week do you work?’ ‘No more that 30’, I replied. She looked at me over the rim of her glasses. ‘Is that because you…

Of course you don’t want to harm feelings or be politically incorrect but if you choose to zip the lips, then you are doing a tremendous disservice to both yourself and the other party.
