Facebook Seminar from The Rental Show 2014

In my role as internet marketing educator, I often get invited to put on seminars for business owners. I have been lucky enough to have been invited to speak at The Rental Show, hosted by The American Rental Association for the past three years. At this year’s show, I spoke specifically on Facebook strategies for business. Over 400 businesses attended and graded the seminar at the end of the event. My score was a 4.9 out of 5. I only tell you that because when you click on the link below, you’ll see that this is a one-and-a-half-hour seminar. YIKES! That’s quite the commitment for a busy business owner. Nonetheless, I encourage you to give it a listen when you can. Start seeing Facebook as the opportunity that it is, instead of an obligation.

Life is Good Playlist

Here’s my way of sharing some of my favorite songs that make me realize that Life is Good. Nothing in the world makes me happier than taking down the top on my Jeep and cruising with my family while we sing these. We call it Jeep Therapy! I hope you enjoy them. Check my Facebook on Mondays for new songs, and please feel free to comment below with some of your own favorites.

Local Plumbing Company Uses Facebook to Generate Over $100,000 a Year

You may have heard of Morgan Miller Plumbing. If you’re plugged into the social media scene in Kansas City, I would pretty much bet on it. This local business has leveraged Facebook in a way that most businesses owners only dream of.

They won KCSourceLink’s Battle of the Brands in 2013.

Facebook invited them to join its inaugural 12-member Small and Medium Business Council.

It’s not a stretch to say that in local business circles, they are considered social media rock stars.

I was lucky enough to sit down with Jeff Morgan and Tosha Everhart who allowed me to interview them for an episode of Internet Marketing Insights. I’ve included a link to that podcast, as well as a complete transcript (coming Friday) below. Take the time to listen to this wonderful interview for insight into why they believe so strongly in social media, what they do that makes them successful and most importantly, how they generate over $2000 a week in sales that they can directly attribute to their presence on Facebook.

Note: I realize that listening to an hour long presentation will require a significant time commitment and I considered providing “Cliff’s Notes” on some of the best parts of the podcast. But seriously, this is some of the best advice available on using Facebook for local business and it’s worth the hour.
