Motion Picture Costumers 705 – Social Media Decks

Thank you so much, Motion Picture Costumers 705, ADG800 and Costume Designers 892, for your hospitality and enthusiasm! I had a terrific time this past weekend, leading the LinkedIn and Twitter workshops and labs. I hope you got some practical tips and help for each platform. I’d love to connect with you on LinkedIn and Twitter!

For clarification, there was a question regarding LinkedIn’s terms of service (TOS). What you post is what you own.

As requested, please see below. I’ve embedded the decks for your files. The unions will also be making the decks available. You can also use the Slideshare links to download the files for your use. These are for you to share and reference back anytime.

Affiliate Marketing Programs and Networks

Blogging itself is not new. Neither is affiliate marketing. You know those display ads you see on or your favorite blogger’s site? They’re monetizing their site using a myriad of ad networks and affiliate marketing programs. They could be using Google Adsense, which [magically uses your search history and] displays relevant ads as you visit your favorite sites. If a blogger is adding a suggestion on what to purchase or links a favorite product to its Amazon URL, they’re most likely in the Amazon Affiliate Program.

If you’re interested in adding advertisement to your blog or would like to research the different affiliate networks out there, look no further. Pick one or two programs from the list below and get your monetizing started! (Note: While this list is long, there are plenty more affiliates and ad networks out there.)

If you’re already on an affiliate network and/or using an ad network, I’d love to hear how you’re doing with your blog monetization!

Hotel Chatter releases 2013 Hotel WiFi Report – Free & Fee

Whether you travel for work or for fun, being able to hop on online at your hotel is almost second-nature. Hotel Chatter has released their 2013 report on Hotel WiFi. It lists the hotels that offer “free” and fee-based WiFi access. “Free” is in quotes because oftentimes the charge is embedded within the resort fee that many hotels charge these days. Granted I’m sure there are hotels who really do offer free WiFi for guests to use.

Hotel Chatter also posted a great infographic of the report, if that is more to your liking. Click on the image below to enlarge!

Bookmark the report and always have it on-hand for reference!
