How to Create Trackable Social Media Links For Your Business by Diane Shawe

We can all agree tht social media plays an important part in sharing your message, services or products. But how do you start tracking what you have posted and how can it help your business, product or brand. I was researching this and have the following this to share with you.

It is important to set up a social media strategy to align with your business goals, and pulled together either paid or free social monitoring services, you’ve got one more habit to get into: tracking. From one fellow community manager to another, you know how important it is to know how one tweet performed versus another, or if one blog post rocked on one social network over another. This can only happen by having the right tracking in place.

Why Use Trackable Sharing Buttons

Not all sharing buttons are created equal, which is why you should pick sharing buttons that will give you a good signal of what’s going on in your site. You may see some insight in your analytics that tell you people visited your site, and some of them were from social. But to really know how and where your community is sharing your content, your sharing buttons should tell you.

How To Create Your Own Share Links

1) Go to http://www.sharelinkgenerator.com/.

2) Choose the social network you want people to share your content on.

3) Fill in the blanks.

4) Download a social button icon.

5) Make the icons clickable using your share link.

By using the right sharing buttons to help you see which social network is most popular among your audience, you’re going to understand your community better. Who knows? There may be a strong niche community reading your content in a social network you’re not actively engaging. These are a community manager’s dream gems to find!

Why Use Trackable Follow Buttons

Do you know, off the top of your head, how many social followers your site got for you this week? If your follow buttons were trackable, you’d be able to get this number without much digging in your analytics. And wouldn’t it rock to be able to tell your teammates you know that most of your Instagram followers came from your site? (This happened to us, actually!) As a community manager, this is the type of understanding that’ll open your eyes into exactly how your audience is engaging with your content. Discover which social networks your audience is most engaged with, and how your site is helping you drive engagement off your domain with trackable follow buttons.

Why Use Trackable URLs

You can automatically generate unique hashes appended to all of your site’s pages to help you generate unique links that you can then use to push to social. Address bar sharing adds a unique set of characters to the very end of your URL that will make that URL unique. (And don’t worry, this will not negatively affect your SEO.)

The reason you’ll want to do this is if you’re trying to monitor how the same content performs on different social networks, and which messaging performed best on the same topic.

There’s nothing more frustrating than spending so much time creating awesome content, and having tons of Tweets, tiktok and instagram out there to drive traffic to your pages, and then not being able to tell which phrasing or timing actually worked best.

Go beyond the pageviews and visits by making all your site’s URLs generate uniquely. You’ll then even be able to catch where a big segment of your traffic came from.

How to embed a tweet using the Twitter website

Open Twitter in a web browser, log in if necessary, and find the tweet you want to embed.

Click the three dots at the top right of the tweet.

In the dropdown menu, choose “Embed Tweet.”

The Twitter Publish page should appear. …

When you’re done, click “Update.”

Why Use Analytics

Tying all of that data together into an easy-to-read dashboard is usually the hardest part of a community manager’s job, but lucky for you, AddThis’ dashboard pulls all of this information for you in one place.

The dashboard lays out in crisp and clear graphics how all of your audience members engaged with your site, which tools they used to engage, and which content they liked the most.

Know exactly which social network is growing the most from your site, and which is being shared to the most. Know all this by just scanning your dashboard (without drowning in search queries and exported spreadsheets).

Review On The long awaited sequel Coming 2 America has a Shocking Revelation for the New King (Eddie Murphy) of Zamunda

Well we all found out at the same time that he has a Son living in Queens! How and when did that happen?

by Diane Shawe M.Ed

We all loved the original story line in Coming to America when a young Prince from Zumunda Africa crossed the seas to Queens USA to find his true Love, Wife and future Queen.

It was lovely to see most of the original characters like James Earl Jones the King and new ones like Wesley Snipes as General Izzi, funny, intimidating with an over done swagger, Morgan Freeman, En Vogue to Gladys Knight.

Almost distinct to the sequel Coming 2 America we were able to see a lot more of Zamunda, the richness of the costumes, ornate jewellery and the mixed media of metals, shells, furs and silk unconventional placed throughout the movie. Even the royal announcer was back with his strained singing and you could almost smell the rose petals.

The film had a very distinct feel to the original unique masterpieces the back story plot worked almost effortlessly in todays timeline with a flashback clearing up the mystery of this Prince.

The Sequel movie had lots of mixed reviews, this is natural as viewers had 30 years to totally fall in love with the love story a bit like ‘Pretty Women’, no one wants to see a sequel to the Happy Ever After fairy-tale. It’s hard not to compare the two after a 30 years gap!

If you want to take a trip down memory lane, laughter with a bit of ‘tongue and cheek’ script then grab some popcorn, something nice to drink because entertainment is back in town.

PLANNING, CONDUCTING AND GETTING RESULTS BY DIANE SHAWE

Pat yourself on the back a little bit more


When it comes to success, are you stuck in the same cycle, or are you ready to move beyond?
Are you ready to move forward – not just a step or two, but a whole level?

Are you ready to leap into a new existence of achievement and power and if so, what does that look like?

Are you ready to leave your old life behind and move right into the life you deserve and if so what would your life looked like?

But if you were so ready, wouldn’t you be there already? Maybe. Maybe not.

Maybe, as much as you long for this dream world, you are also a little scared, a little nervous, or a little
hesitant, you might also be exhausted.

Maybe as much as you say you’re ready, you’re blocking your own way. The good news is, if you’re your own worst enemy, then the only thing standing between you and the life you’ve always imagined is… you!

And once you recognise the issues that are holding you back, you can address them, one at a time.
That’s what I hope to help you do in this short blog. I’ll discuss some of the main ways you can achieve
lasting change and progress towards your dreams. It won’t be easy, but it’ll be life-changing – if you are
willing to do the work.

  1. Up” Your Deserve Level
    We can only achieve as much as we think we can.
    Try this little exercise: Stand up and extend your arms out on both sides of your body. Close your
    eyes and, turning at the waist, see how far you can twist to one side without causing yourself bodily
    harm. Open your eyes and make a mental note of where you are pointing behind you. Now, close
    your eyes and imagine yourself going a little farther. Ready, twist! Open your eyes and see if you
    surpassed your previous point. If you’re like most people, you did!

Why didn’t you go further the first time? For the simple reason that you didn’t think you could. Once you
imagined yourself going further, you did. It’s not very complicated!

If you allow others or your mental beliefs to impose limits on your physical stretching, it makes sense that you’lle limit your mental and spiritual achievement, too. So, you need to ask yourself what limits you’re putting on your:
…dreams.

Are you dreaming big enough?


income potential. Are you unnecessarily or purposely limiting your income or salary?
relationships. Do you doubt what you can achieve or deserve in your friendships and family life?
physical health.

Are you accepting less or making excuses other than the best because you think you’re too old or too outof shape?

The first step to changing your boundaries is to “up” your deserve level.

Here are three things that block you from accepting that you deserve the best:


1. Envy.

Envy is the result of a scarcity or lack mindset. You think that if someone else gets something – a
great job, a new car, a book deal – that you can’t have it, too.

That is not the way the universe works. Just because someone else gets something doesn’t mean no one else can’t as well. even Angelina Jones has been married more than once! Realise that whatever anyone else in this world has – from a great career to a great family to a great body – you can have it, too.

Live your life to the full

Use their example to inspire, rather than depress you.

2. Fear.

Fear is one of the greatest demotivators. It’s hard to feel limitless and powerful when you’re shaking in your shoes! It’s natural to feel scared of breaking outside your normal boundaries, but remind yourself that all growth takes place outside your comfort zone.

To grow, you must push your own limits, by definition. get comfortable with discomfort – see it as a sign of growth, much like aching muscles indicate you worked out hard and are getting stronger and leaner.

3. Laziness.

We tend to get used to where we are and decide that it’s good enough because we don’t really want to have to work harder. Time for a harsh truth: There are different types of laziness such as mental, emotional, physical and spiritual liziness.

If you want an extraordinary life, you’re going to have to go to some out-of-the-ordinary measures. That means pushing yourself, challenging yourself, coaching yourself, whatever it takes to motivate you to move beyond
“average.” Not that there is anything wrong with average.

Moving upward and onward starts with believing you deserve to have more and be more. It’s essential to
own your dreams – and dream big, But it’s also imperative to live in the now and appreciate each experience, each gift and your blessings.

Allow No Excuses

In the immortal words of one of the greatest philosophers of our generation:

Do or Do Not: There is no Try.

Yoda

Your body doesn’t care that you were going to eat the right foods and go to the gym, but it was your
birthday.

Your social media agent doesn’t care that you were going to finish that last chapter, but you was just too exhausted.

You do it, or you don’t. There are no points to trying. Once you accept that, you can move out of the victim
mentality you begin to realise that it really is all up to you!

The other thing you can be sure of is that 99.9 percent of people don’t really care if you succeed or not.

Whether you finish your novel, run the triathlon, start your business or your still holding onto a grudge – they’re going on about their life, without much regard to you and your goals.

It’s All up to you

What it really comes down to is that it’s all up to you, and it’s all about you. That’s a little scary, but it’s
also very empowering. That means once you make up your mind, no one can hold you back.
