To launch the week with a positive #MondayMotivation, we selected to share a tweet from Charles Pascalar @cpascalar


Are your clients using SQUARE to let CUSTOMERS PAY for small PURCHASES? If so, that should be part of your social media marketing message! Square’s portfolio of card readers and other systems have been gaining popularity with smaller businesses. Now it will let users charge BIG PURCHASES in the form of fixed MONTHLY PAYMENTS. More


There are reports that FACEBOOK is playing with the idea of CHANGING IMAGE SIZE in LINK-PREVIEWS. Moving from a landscape to a 1:1 square ratio could affect your SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING efforts. For example, posts would take up more space in the news feed. Good if they attract more eyes to website, but not so much if they turn people away. More


Do you need a GUIDE that describes each step of a successful local SEO STRATEGY? How about two? We found this interesting combo of Infographic and e book, packed with interesting tips, such as “Did you know that the Local Pack features Google My Business listings, not websites?” More


Overshadowed by the Kavanaugh hearings, a plane-load of airline & passenger regulations were signed into law on Friday. While the article tends to editorialize, it is quite comprehensive in detailing all the elements of the law. For example, no restrictions on what airlines can charge for baggage. Also, law now prohibits airlines from “bumping” passengers who’ve already boarded a plane. More

As a Social Media Manager or Small Business Owner, what is one of YOUR biggest pain points? Could it be the blogging process? You KNOW you need blogs for improved SEO on Google, but researching, writing, revising to include keywords, and then editing are very time-consuming tasks. Especially if it takes you THREE HOURS to write the first paragraph!

On the other hand, I can write three paragraphs just getting out of bed. Make better use of your time and tap into my over 40 years of experience as a reporter, editor, and free-lance community writer to generate your creative content. – Anthony Scialis, Managing Editor, SoMe Slice
