Your Email List – It’s Not the Size That Counts

What!?  Now I know that sounds counter-intuitive, but it’s true! When it comes your email list, size doesn’t matter as much as the quality of your subscribers and how they respond to you.

High quality subscribers want your information and look forward to your emails. They OPEN and read your emails or at least scan through them! They stay on your list long-term and they act on your offers and recommendations.

Link Shorteners are GREAT but Take Care WHERE You Use Them

Many enterpreneurs who share content online use URL or link shorteners out of necessity.  Why?  Because some of our links are just plain ugly or just too long to share in our social media like Twitter, our digital newsletters, or wherever we are sharing our URLs.  Bitly, is my favorite link shortener tool because you not only get the benefit of a way to shorten and customize your link. You can also quickly and easily manage, track and measure how many clicks you are getting by simply signing into your Bit.ly account.

Be Smart about Social Media

Spending too much time on Social Media?

Based on the number of social media platforms out there (and it seems the number increases daily), it’s clear that social media accounts for a huge amount of all the time people spend online for both personal and business. While marketing is a necessary part of your overall success, it’s not a good idea to base your entire business marketing efforts on any social networking platform or to spend too much of your valuable time on social media. Not all social media sites will be suitable for your business type or your target audience either.
