Client Showcase: Kingsley Cleaning Service

Today I’m working on a low budget campaign to promote a local cleaning service.  I’m trying to hit all the high spots:

  • Craigs List
  • Tumblr.
  • Twitter
  • Facebook

I’m putting ads on Craig’s List in different towns that they’ll service, started a quick and dirty (get the joke?) blog; and am scheduling tweets and Facebook posts during the day to generate interest, and of course, syndicated posts from here.

I hope to have them on Google before the day is out for local ‘cleaning services’.  We’ll see how that goes!

Their service is straightforward:

Google+ Are you Rockin’ it?

Google+ For Business PagesInternet Marketing is about having a roadsign on every path that your clients and readers may cross, not just the sign on big dog Google. So you’re probably already working Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, and maybe YouTube.

I’m going to emphatically recommend that you get on Google+.

Wondering if you want to go all out and develop yet another social media presence when the first two or three may be taking up too much of your time? My experience has been that Google+ is interesting in and of itself; more engaging than Facebook, and perhaps more satisfying than Twitter in that there is a great ease in seeing comments and +1s to your content.

Google+ vs. Facebook: Google+ winning the race

Google+ For Business PagesFacebook users say it leaves a  lot to be desired

According to the 2011 American Customer Satisfaction Index, Facebook is the least beloved of the major social networks,. Only two-thirds of users said they are happy with Facebook, giving the network the lowest rating in its category.

Analyst Scott Ellison

Social is deceivingly fluid and Google+ is proving that.”

Bye, bye Isaiah, hello Fabio

I was sorry to see Isaiah Mustafa go, but I like Fabio, so I checked out Old Spice’s new guy.

LinkedIn CEO forecasts Google+ can’t keep it up

Google+ For Business Pages10MM users in two weeks

And isn’t that every developer’s dream? Who better to make a big splash than Google? Who is he kidding? Google can’t keep it up? Sure they can.

LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner has gone on record that the Google+ network growth is unsustainable.

Social activity is a zero-sum game, and users simply don’t have the time to learn to operate and optimize a new social platform. Nobody has any free time. Unlike social platforms and TV, which can coexist, you don’t see people using Twitter while they’re using Facebook, or using Facebook while they’re using LinkedIn.”
