Aeriol’s top 10 tips to building online influence with Facebook Live

10 easy breezy tips to get started building online influence with social media: Facebook Live

Those of you who may know me personally know that I am a Social Media Evangelist and a bit of an Audio- Visual geek! lol. well, I just made that up but the truth of the matter is I absolutely LOVE Facebook and I am currently immersing myself in Instagram as well. Both of these Social Media Platforms have a video function which is great news for business’s who would like to build their online visibility and influence.

Instagram currently lets you take or upload short videos up to 60 seconds long. This is great in and of itself but I see this as interesting opportunity to create a promotional buzz to promote longer videos and host video shows on FB live. I see both these platforms (both owned by Facebook coincidentally) really working together to support each other in social media marketing and influence building.

3 Reasons Why Book Publishing is the New COMPETIVE ADVANTAGE for Entrepreneurs

Woman at ComputerAs a professional speaker, coach, consultant, or entrepreneur, writing a book has become almost as necessary as having a business card or a website. This is because, as a published author, your book provides instant credibility and influence as an expert in your field of specialty.

Traditional publishing can take months or even years to complete. With electronic retailers or “e-tailers” as they are often called, such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Apple iBookstore, many authors are now turning to self-publishing as an easier and more convenient way to fast-track the publishing of their book.

Does that really matter?

Many open doors with directional arrow cloudsWe all have our own value system that directs our thoughts and actions.  Some of those values are inherited, some are the result of significant experiences and others have developed over time from study and observation.  Jim Rohn, one of my early mentors, taught that this is a key area for introspection and is at the heart of personal development.  I agree.  He stated it this way:  “Make certain that whatever you (think, believe, do) is the product of your own conclusion. Be a student of many, a follower of none.”
