SLICE is a M-F news digest targeted to assist Social Media Managers and Small Business Owners doing their own marketing.


MAIN SLICE

LOCAL LAST-MINUTE SHOPPING- I have a Holiday Season gift for social media managers and small biz owners who direct their own marketing. First Data, a payment solutions company, says brick-and-mortar retail overall grew in the low single digits during the early part of the 2018 holiday shopping season!

Yay! Now get your accounts to capitalize on that foot traffic over the next 3 days!!! My latest blog has more info…


SLICE SPECIAL OF THE DAY

LOCAL MARKETING TIPS- Ad spend isn’t the only way to “spread the word” about your small biz accounts. I constantly advocate breaking the wall, coming over the counter and having clients getting involved with the community. Don’t just sell stuff, share with the townsfolk.

Not with your products or service. Share info. Share expertise. Share time. Oddly enough for Christmas, a time of giving, I found an article that covers many of my suggestions and I would like to share it with you. More


SLICE INGREDIENTS

MALICIOUS LINKS WORSE THAN ATTACHMENTS- In 2018, there were four times as many malspam emails with malicious links than with malicious attachments. Consider all the email your business clients get every day. How many you get. You may be wary of attachments— but what about innocent enough looking links? Better to be safe than sorry.

Here are 3 free link checkers which will let you know if “clicking the link” will direct you to a compromised website, malware, ransomware, or other safety risks. More


SLICE ON THE GO

FLYING CHRISTMAS OR NEW YEAR’S DAY- Really? You are flying on a winter holiday? Here are 6 tips. 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
