I shared my best Pinterest marketing ideas in this interview with Jeff Sieh. But first, let me tell you a little about Jeff. He’s the man behind the widely popular Google+ Hangout series called The Manly Pinterest Tips Show. Yes, that’s right, men love Pinterest too! Jeff is also making a name for himself in the world of video production and social media management with His Design Online, the company he started a few years back. I think Jeff is the perfect person to advocate for the wide spread adoption of Pinterest by men around the world.
For years YouTubers were frustrated by the lack of traffic data available for their YouTube channel. We longed for a system that would rival the data rich reports we’d come to know and love in Google Analytics, and the old, out-dated YouTube Insights, reports were merely scratching the surface. This left the video analytics door wide open for freemium tracking services like vidIQ, Cyfe and TubeTrackr to easily attract any video marketer who wanted detailed performance reports for their channel. All of that changed a few days ago when YouTube released Realtime traffic reports on the desktop version of YouTube Analytics.
Rob Cubbon is a London-based blogger that I connected with several years ago through blogging communities and social media networks. It’s been a pleasure to watch Rob build his reputation and authority online through his blog, freelancing and web design expertise. To date Rob has published several Kindle books on Amazon covering WordPress, passive income, home-based business and more. It’s been several months since the last time an interview was posted here on the blog, but I really wanted to share some of Rob’s story here because I know you will get inspired by what he’s done just like I did.
Do you find yourself scratching your head trying to figure out what to post on Facebook and other social media sites?
I feel your pain. I manage a handful of Facebook pages and I used to spend hours trying to figure out what type of content my followers like to see and share. Then back in 2012, I found PostPlanner. PostPlanner helps you find viral content to post on Facebook and other social sites!

We all know that it’s important to take time out to clean-up our streams so we can focus more of our attention to engagement. There are plenty of tools that can help us build an engaged following on platforms like Twitter and Facebook. Yet in the case of Google+, there’s only one tool that will save time and simplify the cleansing process and that tool is Circloscope. Christine DeGraff and Craig Fifield took over development of this wonderful Chrome extension earlier this year and at the beginning of each training video you’ll hear Christine say – “Circloscope is a powerful circle management tool, that can help you grow and active and engaged following on Google plus.”
Instagram is taking the lead when it comes to engagement on social networks. Just to be clear, I didn’t just make that up, it’s a statistical anomaly I learned about from Mark Schaefer in his post Why Instagram is Becoming The Dominant Social Network. Mark didn’t make it up either – it’s actually based on a presentation by Scott Galloway, Clinical Professor of Marketing from NYU. There’s a fascinating video that you can watch here that explains how and why he feels that Instagram has even surpassed the impact of Pinterest in terms of engagement in the social media space! Wow.
