Now what does that mean exactly? Well, it means that you probably won’t…

In the midst of everything happening in the world right now, with most of the world practicing “Safer At Home” guidelines, one would think that social media is buzzing due to everyone’s excessive amounts of free time.

However, this may be the case, but it’s also a double-edged Chef’s Knife.

Since everyone is posting more often and liking more of other people’s posts, this conflicts with the current algorithm of social networks, especially Facebook and Twitter.

In short, the algorithm of Facebook and Twitter focuses on sharing posts that the platform thinks you would like, with timeliness no longer a…

With 1 BILLION monthly active users, it is safe to say that Instagram is another powerhouse social network that could rival the success of its parent network Facebook.

Are you looking to reach a younger audience? Are you looking to incorporate more compelling images of your best recipes? Are you looking for a fun and engaging social network that will position you in front of a large audience?

If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, then you absolutely need to be using Instagram for your business. Unlike its parent Facebook (Facebook bought Instagram in 2012), Instagram is more visually-focused, relying heavily on photos and videos as opposed to lots of text. …


Facebook is the world’s third most-visited website, which means that there are many opportunities to incorporate this social platform into your small business.

When non-business people think of Facebook, they usually think of cute dog videos or their mom tagging them in horrible photos from their last birthday party. However, to a small business owner, Facebook can be both those things and so much more.

In addition to connecting with friends, family members, and loved ones, Facebook is the perfect way to connect with potential clients and this article will explain a few ways to do so as well as best practices for using Facebook in your small business.

1. Making a Facebook Page

If you’re going to be using Facebook to connect with clients, you should probably…

With statistics like these, it’s obvious that any small business owner who is not using social media is missing out on a giant opportunity.

Technology can be your best friend in business or your biggest nightmare. It comes down to whether you control your technology or you let it control you.

I chuckle when I read about the generational divides when it comes to tech. There’s certainly a little element of truth to Boomers and older lacking some technical expertise and Gen Z living only in a tech world (though I’m happy to take on a couple generations younger than me in a tech battle!), but its not a matter of absolutes.

The bottom line is that technology is not going away so you…
