And don’t forget WordPress! (Never)


I’m still amazed.
Instagram (iPhone photo fun sharing site) has been snatched up by Facebook for a billion dollars. A billion dollars! And they only have nine plus employees. A little tiny company.  I like Instagram BUT How could an app be worth a billion dollars? And . . Why can’t I win the lottery?

Everyone wants more business. Facebook is a great place to stop and do business but how can you capture more?  Well you can start by 1. Bragging about your brand. If you don’t- who will? 2. Have contests + giveaways. Keep customers wanting to come to your site. 3. Content. Keep it fresh and interesting. Look for a wide audience. 4. Offer sales right on Facebook. The customers are there and some might be ready to buy. Make it easy. 5. A picture says a 1000 words. Have lots of photos to share.
