I am so frustrated. I need your help. I have a great client who has been in business for over 10 years.  It is a great business that is doing well.  Up until this year, the business model has been a pretty traditional brick-and-mortar type business where products are delivered in a face-to-face manner.  This year, the decision was made to offer products in an online mode as well

Using Facebook for business is definitely different than using Facebook to interact with your friends and family.  Even though you might be a “pro” at using Facebook to keep track of what’s going on with your friends, and keep them posted on what is happening with you, you might not understand and realize that the rules are way different when using Facebook for business.

Oh yes - They are at it again. Two new changes.  The most important for business fan page posts is the second one on how they will view Link Share posts, and how you need to change what you are doing when posting links to get the most views.

As I have already mentioned, I love riding my bicycle.  And so, I also love watching the Tour de France, the 21-stage bike race that takes place annually in France.  Watching the guys on their bikes, riding day after day, usually way over 100 miles each day super-motivates me.  As the last week rolls around, they are exhausted, they are often bruised and banged up, but they push on giving it their all.

I am an avid road cyclist. I love bicycling for a lot of reasons.  One of my close friends recently asked me if I want to sell my bicycle.  I said "Are you kidding?  I love my Bike.  If Mike is out of town, I sleep with my bike in the bed."

Kings-Win-Stanley-Cup.png

In the longest game they have ever played, into double overtimes, the Los Angeles Kings won the game and the Stanley Cup, with less than 12 minutes left in the second overtime period. 

Once again, the Kings have done something amazing… Not that I thought for a moment they couldn’t win… I don’t mean amazing in that sense.  I mean amazing, or should I say awe-inspiring, in that they NEVER GAVE UP.

Saturday afternoon, I happened to be driving through L.A. right before the King’s game.  Am I a hockey fan.  Nope.  It’s not that I don’t like hockey.  I have been to 2 professional games in my lifetime, and thoroughly enjoyed myself. 

Am I A Sports Fan?

You betcha!  It's just that professional sports-wise, my number one passion is the Los Angeles Dodgers.

AmpUrBiz-7-Steps-For-Forming-New_Custome

During the most recent holiday week-end, I ended up in my favorite grocery store 3 times in the same day.  Yes, I know – I made a list and was very organized in order to save time.  Even so, I left something off the list, and had to go back.  And then after that, I had a “brilliant” idea on an addition to the meal, and went back for that.  

Each Time, I saw the very friendly store manager.  The first time, she actually came over and helped bag...

I took this picture on a beautiful sunny morning not too long ago.  The sun was shining, the birds were singing, and this amazing set of clouds was sitting on top of the mountains right behind my house.  And I was struck by how magnificent this cloud looked.  And it also hit me that I saw something beautiful while my friend looked at this same cloud and said “oh no!”

Facebook has done it again.  This time they have made changes to the fan page (your business page) formatting, all in the name of making things better and easier for all of us!  

 

As usual, they roll the changes out, so you might not see them on your page today, but they will appear shortly.  To get the full detail and see what if any changes you need to make
