A few weeks ago, I noticed that Facebook kept showing me the same posts with one or two new ones. I finally figured out why and how to fix it.
That’s it, but keep checking because Facebook keeps switching it back. At this writing, I didn’t see any way to change it permanently through Options. If you have a tip to make that happen, please leave in the comments.
I wanted my photo on LinkedIn to stand out so I framed it. Here’s how I did it.
I made a commitment for 2014 to do a better job staying connected with past and current clients by first connecting with them on LinkedIn. I’d exported ONLY my Client category from Outlook into a .csv file and had to figure out how to upload that to LinkedIn. Here’s a quick video to show you how.
How are you planning on staying connected with your clients? Please leave a comment below.

LinkedIn is the number one social media site for getting business. Whether you’re job hunting, recruiting, or promoting your business and expertise, it’s the place to be. I put together this compilation of how-to videos I’d recorded that will improve your profile.
For more videos on LinkedIn, I’ve included my LinkedIn Playlist. I hope you’ll find some tips you can use.
I rarely connect with people on LinkedIn who don’t have a photo as part of their profile. And when I do, it’s because I know them well, and I encourage them to add a headshot. Here’s how.
Are you taking advantage of being able to add your videos to a Slideshare.net presentation? It’s great for SEO and exposure to a business community. From their Website: “SlideShare is the world’s largest community for sharing presentations. With 60 million monthly visitors and 130 million pageviews, it is amongst the most visited 200 websites in the world. Besides presentations, SlideShare also supports documents, PDFs, videos and webinars.”
Does this sound like somewhere you need to be? Especially since they have a free version, right?
I’ve been busy on SlideShare lately, and wanted to share some tips that I think will help you.
I have a free account on SlideShare so I can’t upload a video directly. But since all my videos are on YouTube, I can add them to a presentation by inserting the link. Here’s a how-to video I recorded a couple of years ago, and everything works pretty much the same. You’ll want to use the URL from your browser’s address bar on the watch page (should see the word “watch” in the link).
I had to re-upload my presentation several times as I was learning all this. Unlike YouTube, you don’t lose your view counts when you switch out the file. To re-upload, go to My Uploads, find the presentation, click Edit-Re-upload.
The YouTube video will remain intact as long as the slide count doesn’t change. Otherwise, you’ll have to re-add it.
To see all this in action, check out my SlideShare presentation below.
After you’ve finished uploading your presentation to SlideShare, and you’ve added your video, don’t stop there. Below are some ideas on other ways to leverage this content.
For additional information on using SlideShare for SEO, branding, content marketing, and link building, check out this article by Boris Demaria on this topic. Great insights. And check out this post on The Moz Blog from Rand Fishkin on Leveraging the Power of Slide Decks to Boost Your SEO, Social + Content Marketing. And more great info is in this article by Mark Sherbin for the Content Marketing Institute, titled “6 Steps for Successful Content Marketing Using SlideShare’s Secret Search Sauce.” These articles reassured me that using SlideShare was a smart move.
All this should keep you busy for a while. Please leave any questions or ideas you have in Comments.
