LinkedIn is the place to find business professionals online. It has more than  225 million registered users around the globe, and about one third of those are in the US. If you are looking to find sales leads in social media, LinkedIn is one of the best places to do it ,because many members are decision makers.

I talked before about how you should establish a presence for your company on LinkedIn and the opportunities LinkedIn Groups can offer for building relationships and finding sales leads. But LinkedIn is also an excellent place to put some of your marketing budget to work. How? With advertising.

What are LinkedIn ads?

LinkedIn ads are small boxes that appear on various pages on...

This was cross-posted on the DLT Solutions Web site

Cloud has amazing appeal.  Who can argue with benefits like incredible scale, elasticity, and just-in-time access to IT resources?  And that whole Operating Expense (OpEx) model with payments based on actual utilization is darn compelling to the financial types.  In fact, I’ve often heard these sorts of comments from my customers who are leveraging public Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud services like Amazon Web Services (AWS).

What these customers also understand is that public cloud platforms aren’t just co-located or hosted virtual machines.  Public IaaS providers offer robust IT platforms that provide a suite of IT services ranging from data center primitives like virtual...

Happy New Year, Partners! Here's a fresh opportunity to recommit yourself and/or your company to efforts on social channels. And if there’s one place your company should have a social presence, it’s on LinkedIn. This channel keeps it strictly business…no pictures of what your colleague had for breakfast or their kid’s first birthday party (not that I'm against eating or celebrating!).

Chances are you already have a personal LinkedIn account – along with 175 million other users on the site. This week, I’ll share three easy, no-cost steps to help increase your company’s visibility on the site.

1. Create or update the LinkedIn page for your company.
If you don’t yet have a LinkedIn page for your company, create one – it doesn’t take that long and provides free online real estate for your company where others who are...

In my post titled, Social Networking Platforms Part 2: Facebook, I mentioned that I’d cover Facebook’s built-in analytics capabilities and external tools you can use to measure how you’re social media efforts are doing. And as promised, that’s what my next two posts will focus on.

Facebook’s built-in analytics, called Insights, are a great way to gauge your progress with this platform, both as you’re first getting started as well as long-term. And it’s free!

Insights on Insights

Insights give page administrators an Overview look at Total Likes, Friends of Fans, People Talking About This (total likes, shares, comments, etc. for your posts), Weekly Total Reach (number of  people who have seen content from your page) and total Followers as both total current numbers and as a percentage increase/...

Last time, I highlighted Twitter as a social media platform ideal for promoting your business. For the next few posts, I’ll focus on Facebook.

 

Facebook

Today, there are approximately 1 billion users according to Facebook – and you’re probably included in that count. It is the preferred social networking site for business-to-consumer marketers, but is not currently in the top three for business-to-business marketers. It’s essentially a closed community—one that requires a login. It’s designed for sharing short paragraphs and visual multimedia, such as photos, videos and infographics. It’s the most visually-friendly of all—with the best support for visual content compared to Twitter and LinkedIn.

In our experience, we’ve found that the best...
