30 Day Online Visibility Challenge | How to Win A Copy of Seth Godin’s New Book!

Is 2015 the Year of Better Visibility and more business opportunities for you? If so, please read on… (scroll down to get the book give-away info!)

No matter how much visibility you have now, it could be better, right? This is something I feel quite urgent about, especially when I talk to entrepreneurs who are struggling to get on the radar of more people they can serve. Usually they’re not sure what to do so they don’t do much of anything. If that describes how you feel, the truth is that if you don’t address your visibility needs sooner rather than later, it’s going to continue to be a long, tough, uphill slog. 

But, it doesn’t have to be. [Read more…]

How to Stay Visible Online When You’re Having an Adventure Offline

Denise at the Taj MahalAs a solo or small business owner, it can be difficult to get away from your business.  You may feel guilty because generating income is solely your responsibility. Or you worry that people will forget you if you’re not showing up on social networks in your usual way.

I get it. I just spent two weeks in India and as a solo business owner, I had to decide if I would just disappear for awhile and not worry about it, or make a careful plan to stay visible online. I’m sure you can guess that I chose the later.

Ask Denise – How Often Should I Post to Get Visibility?

Ask Denise - How Often Should I Post to Get Visibility?

One of the most perplexing things about social media marketing is wrangling all the social sites you’re on and knowing what, when and how often to share content. I received this question from Trudy Van Buskirk:

How many times a day do you have to post to get visibility?

It’s not the first time I’ve been asked this question over the years. A decade ago it was “how often should I post on my blog?” Now, it’s “how often should I post on [insert social networking site]?”.

[Listen to the post if you prefer audio]

The first thing to get out of the way is that there are no rules and everyone has an opinion. There is no “right way” or right time to post.
