Will Facebook’s New Ideas Kill Your Business Page?


This week, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg made an announcement about the changes that are to come to Facebook users. He stated, “we’ve gotten feedback from our community that public content — posts from businesses, brands and media — is crowding out the personal moments that lead us to connect more with each other.”

Zuck’s concern is aimed at the welfare of the community.

Are You Ready to Fire Your PR Firm?

The most common complaint I hear from companies is that their communications / PR firm “just isn’t doing anything”. Clearly, if a company or individual is feeling this way it is just plain frustrating. I get it. No one likes to watch their hard-earned dollars go down the drain.


I love to help companies find their voice and create a persona for their brand that is relatable and relevant to their audience. Generally, that is what a good communications professional does.

Best Tool To Get You Blogging More  Often

Consistent blogging is the most common hurdle I hear from influencer friends. I tell clients all the time that each post doesn’t need to be lengthy. Some can simply be quickies throughout your days. The same advice can be given to bloggers. These kind of posts allow an audience to get a glimpse of your daily thoughts/activities/life. 

How To Be In The Moment

To capture the spirit of the moment for a post, doesn’t it seem best to not put it off? You lose the enthusiasm and sense of a situation the longer it takes to get it out of your brain.

Enter,  the WordPress phone app. This app allows you to retrieve access to all your WordPress logins from one place.  Check stats for yourself or clients. Post a photo or quote. Put a profound thought out in the cyberverse before it’s forgotten. WHATEVER. 

Given you’re a WordPress user like myself, you have the ability to keep on top of your blog conveniently. 

NO EXCUSES. You’ll love the tool.
