Thankful Thursday: Brand Love, Marketing & Blog Mistakes, Twitter & Triberr

by Adrienne Smith on March 28, 2013

It’s the last Thursday of the month and time for my Thankful Thursday post.  I’ve got another five good ones for you today.

I’m hoping you’ll really enjoy reading these because you’ll find them pretty helpful.  Now you know I was ranting about Google in my last post and it’s obvious that I am not alone in my quest to shun them from my life.

So many other people have written about that as well and how you can continue getting tons of good quality traffic to your blog that will love you from this day forward without their help.  Isn’t that what we all want?

Oh and checkout the little changes I made.  I had stopped by Carol’s blog this week, which I’m featuring first, and she had gotten this idea from someone she had visited.  I thought that’s a pretty cool idea don’t you think?

Okay, I’ve gone on enough so here is what I have for you this month:

Money Can’t Buy Love

Carol knows how to get me going.  I’m extremely passionate about building relationships and she shared some excellent points here about this very thing.  It’s a new year and if you don’t keep up with the times you just may be left behind.  I certainly do not want to see that happening to you.

It’s time to go back to the basics.  For some reason that was lost on a lot of people but this is the way it’s always been and this is the way it is now.  So if you want success with your online business, be sure to read “Money Can’t Buy (Brand) Love”.

What Won’t Work Today

When I read Hector’s post I was nodding my head and agreeing with everything he had said.  I was over here doing the hallelujah dance too.  I’ve shared this post everywhere I can and I’m doing it again here.   Thank goodness several other people have highlighted this gem as well.

If you want to know what won’t work today with your blog then be sure to check what Hector wrote in “5 Marketing Ideas That Once Worked But Won’t Work in 2013”.  This is one of those amen posts ya know.  Bravo Hector, bravo!

Top Blogging Mistakes

We’ve all been there and done that I’m afraid.  We’ve all made mistakes with our blogs and some people still are, especially those that are new.  That’s why we read a lot of blogs right!  So we can learn what the right thing to do is.  Who better to learn from then one of the masters himself.

Check out David’s post where he shares “Top 8 Mistakes Way Too Many Blog Owners Make – Are You?”.  I think you’ll find this one pretty darn interesting, I sure did.

Build Your Brand On Twitter

You guys know I love Twitter and it’s one of my top referral traffic sources.  With everything happening with Google we need to continue building those relationships with people who want what we have to offer.  Twitter is one of the best ways to go about that.

Once again, Paul is a master at all things Twitter.  So I can help you the best way I know but he really has all the goods.  Check out his post “Branding With Twitter: 11 Steps To Building Your Brand On Twitter” and he’s giving you all his best tips.

2013 Is The Year Of Communities

Things change and what worked six months ago won’t work now.  Google has made it very clear that there will be more updates as the year progresses.  Great, fine, rock on but we don’t have to be affected by those changes.  Want to know how to get in front of millions upon millions of people?

Check out Dino’s post “The Greatest Trick Google Ever Pulled” and hear his thoughts on why we should all be concentrating more on social media.  Triberr is a huge part of that and you do NOT want to be left behind my friends.

Good Ones Right!

I prefer to share information here at my blog about blogging, social media and building relationships.  Well, that was covered in all of these posts so if you haven’t read them already I sure hope you’ll put some time aside to read these.

Especially with the way things continue to change we need to stay up on the latest trends wouldn’t you agree?  With Google’s recent update things are definitely changing so stop concentrating on what use to work and let’s all put our energy into what does.

I’m always eager to hear your opinions so be sure to let me know what you thought of my shares today.

Now you know I’d appreciate it if you’re share this one with your friends too.  If I were them I’d want to know what the heck is going on too!

Oh and be sure and have a fabulous Easter.  I can’t believe it’s this weekend already but have a great time however you’re spending it.

Hi Adrienne!

A wonderful collection of posts yet again. :)

We do look forward to your Thankful Thursdays, because not all of us might be visiting the blogs you mention here, so it’s a great opportunity to visit their blogs and either make new connections, or learn from what they write.

I have just read John’s and Dino’s post, but the others I would surely be checking out. And I liked the change of having the pictures of these wonderful bloggers alongside their links and posts – adds more color and we can immediately relate to them too.

Thanks for sharing this with us. Have a wonderful week ahead, and Happy Easter (in advance!)

Hi Harleena,

I appreciate that and thank you for sharing that with me.

If it were up to me, I’d share all my favorites that I visit every week because you guys just have some awesome content. But I also like to find some things that I know I may not have shared yet or someone who has a heck of a lot more experience then me can teach you better. I think that’s what this is all about. The reason I enjoy sharing the posts I run across throughout my week. Trying to help everyone learn and grow in areas they may need assistance with.

Glad to hear you’re read John’s and Dino’s. Ah, and you like the photos? I do too and you can see who I’m referring to as well. Glad Carol decided to change her’s from what she had seen at Erica’s blog. I like it too, thanks.

You have a wonderful week as well and Happy Easter!

HI Adrienne,

Great share!

I’m not aware of any of the above mentioned awesome bloggers so for me there is a chance of making new connections. I’ll be visiting their blogs very soon. I’ve been able to make connections with everyone I know through you only.

Thanks for all your support.

Have a great weekend and happy Easter.

Hi Adrienne,

All right, I’m back. I think my first comment didn’t go though.

I’ve read Carol and Hector’s posts last week and they were great. I haven’t read the other 3 but will do this week end.

I so agree with Carol, money can’t by love. Yesterday we were talking about our comment group, you see I do not comment on a blog JUST because they are posted on a comment group or just because I already comment on 5 blog. I building relationships. That’s what I do, and I know you know all about that!

I don’t care how many blogs I’ve comment on, because I do it for the right reasons. If you don’t want to comment on my blog it will be obvious eventually, right? :)

You and Carol for example, are people who really know how to show love and I’ll come to your blogs until the cows come home. And that’s how I’m trying to be.

Have a great end of the week!

Hey Sylviane,

Sorry about that… More server issues so it might have been lost in transition somewhere from going off line AGAIN…

I knew you’d read Carol’s and Carol shared Hector’s as well but it’s definitely been on my list because I loved what he shared with us there. It’s so true isn’t it and aren’t we glad we’re headed in that direction!

I so agree with you and I’m the same way. I’m here to build relationships with people and if they’re only here to see what they can get from me then I’m not interested. I don’t mind helping people out but if you give nothing in return time after time you can’t expect people to stick around for long. That’s just not going to happen.

We don’t all connect with each other and we don’t all enjoy each other’s content. But when you find those bloggers that you do then that’s when things start happening and relationships start forming.

Why thank you for that Sylviane and I have no doubt that’s exactly how you are. You’ll find those right connections and you’re very giving of your time to those who appreciate it. ;-) You’re awesome girl!

I really appreciate your patience and your comment Sylviane, thank you so much. You have a great end to your week and Happy Easter!

It’s been a little while so I wanted so stop by and say “hi” and check out another awesome post from you.

I’m looking forward to checking out the blog posts you reference in this post, especially Paul’s. I’ve become quite the fan of Twitter and it’s by far my social media platform of choice. Like anything worthwhile, there is a bit of a learning curve so I’ve been devouring any helpful tidbits and training I can find on it, so thank you!

I hope you are well and have a wonderful Easter with your family!

Ah yes, Paul is a master at Twitter so why reinvent the wheel right! I prefer to share content from those that know a heck of a lot more then me although I believe I’m not doing too shabby myself. I have a feeling you’ll learn lots from him and I’m so happy to hear you’re loving Twitter.

You have a blessed Easter my dear and a great weekend overall. Thank you!

Oh rats… I just wrote a comment and my computer crashed and I was hoping the comment went through before that but it looks like it didn’t. Now I have to remember what I said, lol…

Ok, first of all thank you for adding my blog to the list! I really appreciate it. And I’m glad you liked the idea of adding photos. I thought it was a great idea and when I saw it on Erica’s blog I liked how it really gave me a connection with the person writing. Looks like she started a trend!

I definitely read Hector’s blog and loved that one. And Dino is always awesome. He made a great point about that evil Google. I know we love to hate Google. Actually, I read a very disturbing thing just this week in relation to the conversation we were having about being penalized for links. It was a post about how Google may start penalizing sites for having dofollow links, like in the comments! So first they tell us to build links and then they punish us for it. Honestly, it’s like they want to own the internet and tell us all how to play in it.

Well, not to get morbid here because I really loved the roundup you have. I know Hector and Dino but not the others so I have 2 new blogs to add to my reading list. Thanks for that, I’m looking forward to meeting new people! And thanks again for having me :)

I hate that Carol and my server was down this morning so others had problems when they hit that submit button and my server crashed right about that time. Urgggg, so frustrating.

You are so very welcome and you remember my comment on that one. Girl, I love what you shared but then again I love all your posts. I did like that idea and we have Erica to thank for that and I’m glad you implemented that on your blog too so thank you for sharing that with us Carol. Look what you started! ;-)

Hector’s post has been on my list for awhile now and was he not spot on or what. I actually loved what he shared and am thrilled that people actually have to consider which direction they need to go this year. And then Dino’s post just really followed up to what he said. I love what he said about the evil Google and in my comment to him I let him know that they were on my sh*t list right now so I was very pleased to read that and love the direction everyone needs to go. You know, since we’re already do that ya know! ;-)

And that is exactly why I get so ticked off. It’s not that I count on the search engine traffic but one month they are telling you this is okay and then the next month you’re being penalized for what they told you was okay last month. No warning or oops, we’re changing direction guys. I shared Matt’s video about the dofollow links and how it’s okay as long as they don’t point to a spammy site. Now someone else is now saying that’s all about to change. So what the hell is it! Urggggg And you’re right Carol! Who gave them permission to be God’s of the internet! I say we all take our business elsewhere and let them be left to scrape.

I know, I get so riled up about that and it’s really just not all that important. Hurt me in your eyes Google if you want but I have plenty of other people who think you’re full of it.

Enjoy David and Paul’s posts Carol. I think you’ll like those as well.

Loved her piece on money can’t buy brand love. I had read Hector’s but it was my first visit there and I had not read David’s before. Thanks for the lessons and have a wonderful Easter Adrienne.

Carol’s posts are always chalked full of good scoop so I always learn a lot from her. That particular post I just loved and from the topic you know exactly why.

Hector’s post just rocked and I couldn’t wait to share that but glad some people beat me to it. I think it’s well deserved since the year is still so young. Be forewarned people!

David is behind the Blog Marketing Academy and is a master at blogging so people need to listen when he speaks. I mean he knows how to make things happen so I enjoy reading his posts.

Thank you dear Adrienne for such awesome sharing here! I was very excited to read Hector’s post – how refreshing! Because, yeah, being a new blogger (since 2012) I can totally tell you we are still getting OLD advice that no longer is relevant!

So glad for Carol’s post – yes you cannot buy your way into much in terms of your brand, blog, audience… as a pretty keen online observer – I can totally tell who is doing that – it’s disingenuous and I am only interested in real deal kind of peeps (like you Adrienne!)
Thanks for rocking it once again woman!

I will read the rest a bit later! Just wanted to say hi and thanks!

I just love Hector’s post. I thought about writing something like that but then thought no, he’s already done such an amazing job. I just hate it when we continue to get second hand information that no longer works.

Carol really told us like it is didn’t she! Yeah, no more sliding under the table anymore and if you go the deceitful route, Google will slap you silly. They love doing that.

Thank you Robin, I appreciate that and you take your time.

Happy Easter on Sunday. We are supposed to get rain. I don’t think we have had good Easter weather in years. If it hasn’t rained, it has been cold. Maybe next year! But can’t complain much as the weather is usually pretty good most of the time.

Adrienne, There is some great stuff here. I started to see that Google fall off you were talking about. I did a little clean up today as a result of reading David’s post, hopefully that will help. It occured to me that having my welcome page as the landing page is probably costing me so I switched it to the blog. Gosh, these silly little tweaks we have to do to play the game! It would be nice if all we had to do was make friends and write great content :) At least, that’s the fun part.

Hi Julie,

Oh no, sorry you saw a slack too. Yeah, stupid little tweaks that are no big deal obviously are to Google. Now the whole thing about it is that you can just write great content and get plenty of visitors through referrals. That’s where the majority of my traffic comes from anyway so if we all aren’t worries as much about what Mr. Google thinks about us then we’re all good.

I say keep on writing girl cause you’re rockin it!

Great Post Adrienne!, Already read 3 of them and OMG! I’m not that lost but there are still so much to do and learn, Gosh hate being a newbie!!! There is way too much information and a lot of them are opposite ways of thinking so some times I get confused about the right way of blogging successfully. All these you’ve pointed out make a lot of sense, web is changing so fast that I don’t even get the chance to adapt and I need to. And of course a lot of what I’ve read is from maybe last year or even more, so now I’m shocked!!!

You always give the right lights! Thank you so much.

Hey Cami,

Thank you and wow, you’ve already read three of them. There is still so much to learn even for those of us who have been around awhile. The internet will continue to change and there will be things that will be changing right along with it. The way we do things won’t always remain the same. If we don’t learn and grow then we won’t have any succes.

There are still plenty of people teaching you the old ways of doing things. I’m sure some of those things work okay but not all of them. That’s the bad thing about being online. We never really know who to trust which is why building those relationships is so important. Wouldn’t you rather come to someone you know won’t steer you wrong?

Thanks Cami and talk to you later.

I admit that I signed up for Triberr after hearing your recommend it so strongly a couple weeks ago but I immediately felt overwhelmed and haven\’t done anything with it. But with everything going on with Google and really wanting to dramatically expand my reach – it sounds like the place to be. I\’m going to take another look at it again.

I’m sure your marketing person will really appreciate reading this content because the majority of these posts are from some pretty successful bloggers so they really know their stuff.

Twitter is awesome and I’m glad you’re really involved in that platform. Since you are, Triberr will really come in a lot more handy. So you or your marketing person can check out Triberr’s blog and get more information on how it can benefit you. Here is that link http://blog.triberr.com/. I had also done a video of Triberr but since they just changed the look once again, you can always check out a video that Dino did on a Hangout about three months ago now. It’s rather long but you’ll find it helpful. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJSuUhwY2Ww

You’ll enjoy David’s post too and sometimes it’s just the little things that can made a big difference. Hope you enjoy his and the others.

I most definitely am and hope you are as well. You have a fabulous Easter weekend too!

Adrienne, that is a good list of bloggers. I love the fact that they are all have different niches. I am familiar with two of them and I have listened to Hector’s podcast.

I am very interested in what Hector has to say about marketing. Thanks for sharing these.

A very amazing share as usual. Among all the bloggers, i only know of David and Paul.

I’ve learnt a lot from David before, but have been visited him again for a long time now, time to go back there. And yes, i will also check out the others.

Thanks for the reminder, and happy Easter too.

I will travel to the village tomorrow to see my parents and also spend the Easter there.

You remind me of the days of the

Where only a few lucky people
Would be able to find gold.

The only big difference between the days
Of the Californian Gold Rush
And you is this –

You keep coming up with gold
Every time you write!

HAPPY Easter to you too –
Hope the Easter Bunny brings
you loads and loads of eggs.

Take care.

Hi Adrienne,

Thanks for sharing these awesome posts! I’ve been to almost all of them and have already learned quite a bit! Awesome!

I totally agree with you, the more we can get away from Google, the better we are. I just don’t like the way they change the rules at the drop of a dime. It’s their sandbox, so I guess they can if they want, but the way they own the search engine market, it makes it difficult for the rest of us who try to play by ever-changing rules. Oh well.

Thanks for sharing, as always, Adrienne! I hope you have an outstanding Easter!

I’m going to do my best Barry to get away from all things Google. You’re right, they own it and they make the rules. If we want to play we have to abide by the rules but it’s still their place so they can still ban us if they want. All I know is I don’t need them to make it so I’m just going to go and play elsewhere.

I appreciate the comment Barry and you have a fabulous weekend.

The guidelines given might appear very basic but they are the fundamental things to follow if you are serious about your presence in twitter.I’ve found I get much more interaction when using my photo rather than a company logo. People like to know they’re talking to a real person, not a company robot

Hey Sam,

That is one thing about being online and connected with people no matter which site you’re on. People connect with people not logos. I know they are important to businesses because it’s their brand but when on social media you are more interesting in building those relationships with people instead and I don’t connect to a brand logo.

Thanks for your comment, always appreciated.

Hi Adrienne,

I am a bit late to Thankful Thursday, but that’s the great thing about blogging, the content is still here :) I have been focusing on creating a better strategy for my business lately, and even though I am not finished, I have been working hard to turn my business into a strong and long-term business. And now, it’s Easter and I’m spending it with my family.

Great posts Adrienne, and I am especially following Dino and Dan and their Triberr community. I have been thinking of upgrading, but I am still on the fence, waiting to see what happens. I am not sure if the new version is a better one than the old, I am switching back to the old one when I am going to share new posts. That might not be a good thing, but no matter how I am doing it, I still love Triberr :)

Happy Easter Adrienne.

You’re never late Jens because like you said, the content is always here.

I’m happy to hear that you continue to work and improve on your business model Jens. I have no doubt you’ll be very successful. That’s just who you are.

I’m spending Easter with my family too and family tonight for dinner so I won’t be around all weekend either.

I love Triberr and the new layout is okay but like you I’ve been switching back to the old way as well. My posts aren’t loading up in the new version for some reason. I go to the old version and I’ll have about 6 pages of posts where in the new version it may load a couple times but I can’t see all of them in the new layout. Not sure why so until they get that situated I’m sticking with what works for me.

Thank you Jens and Happy Easter!

Google – or Mrs. Google as I call her. I think she’s going through menopause. I don’t know, but be have a love / hate relationship all my blogging life.
Google is more unpredictable than the weather in The Netherlands. If they had made a plan to kill the relative small bloggers, they could not do it any better than they are doing right now.
No more Google? I believe that’s impossible for at least a few years. Guess we just have to deal with it.

I’m starting to have a love/hate relationship with Google too Jan! I use to love him/her but now I’m leaning the other way.

You are so right and it’s becoming very obvious to me that if you aren’t a paid contributor to Google in some way then you’re going to get knocked of the radar. Although they say they want unique quality content, which I give them, they still aren’t pleased because I’m not paying for any of their services. I’m really starting to believe that’s the real key here.

We’re pretty stuck with them and they do have some awesome services. They’ve made it almost impossible to cut ties entirely. Bummer!

Thanks Jan and Happy Easter!

Johnny Depp once said that ‘Money can’t buy you love, but it can buy you a very big boat to get you there’. :-)

We are in business to make money to better our own lives and hopefully the lives of others on the way by providing them with good information free and paid. In my experience, if you sell something to someone that works, this is worth more to them than if you gave it to them for free. People respond better if they have invested in something. Of course this is just my opinion from my own studies.

I read every post on the page Adrienne and I do see a trend from each person and that was relationship building. It seems relationships are becoming the best way to build your business and your income. I particularly liked Paul’s Twitter tactics and have that bookmarked for future reference. I also agree partly with Dino when he says not to rely on Google, but I don’t think you can rely on one single entity like Triber to build your online business. We must diversify to other area. There are so many people sharing information and fighting for the same thing! Subscribers to sell services to.

I likes Hector’s points about going it alone. It makes sense to do this as you are your own business and you as a business owner need to concentrate on this. I also agree with the statements about targeted lists, although your business niche should only build a targeted list? Here is a little truth about list size. I was recently in an online product competition running 1st. After about 10 emails to my list on the same subject I was kind of pushing too much. Anyway Dave Nicholson my buddy sent 3 emails and took 1st place! He has a bigger list than me which wasn’t target to social media as much as mine. A targeted list is not always going to get you the most sales, although it will get you a greater click through.

Overall some great points in all those posts Adrienne and some alternate takes on business which I enjoyed but not entirely agreed with :-).

Hey Dan,

LOL… I love that!

In a prefect world that should be the way it is but most people who even invest in something don’t use it. Aren’t those the stats that keep popping up everywhere? Dang!

Glad you read all of these and found that the trend is leaning back to the basics. I do believe that building those relationships will prove more important now then ever. People aren’t going to continue to buy for all the cool bonuses because they’re finding that when they need that person they aren’t there for them. Now that’s a shame.

I know that John’s post is really helpful and although I do love Triberr I also agree with you. You can’t just put all your eggs in just one basket but if you are going to create one basket, Triberr should definitely be on that list.

I don’t believe that pushing your list is the way to go anymore. I get that you’re on a deadline to get those sales but too much of a good thing will turn them away. I’m sorry Dave took the lead because I know you provide not only great products but awesome support for your list Dan. But that was a great example, thanks!

Well glad you liked my list and that’s okay, we all have our own thoughts about things. I just appreciate you sharing yours with me Dan.

Have a great week.
