Tying your Social Networks Together

Published on 7/6/2014

FavIcon your Social Networks Together:

Note: This is the 13th in the “GetStarted” Sequence. Tying your Social Networks together is an important part of making social media work for you. Assuming that you are using Internet Marketing to promote yourself, your business, your opportunities or your products, the goal remains the same. You need to attract attention to your efforts.

It may seem best to concentrate on the largest network and not worry about the others but the truth is that that may not work for your Internet Marketing efforts. For an example, Facebook has many times more users than IBO Toolbox. Over the past few weeks, my Friends list has grown to about 1800 of the 5000 permitted.

One might think that my efforts on Facebook would have created more traffic for my website, Nove-Noga. Actually, while I was tied up at Facebook and preparing my next Press Release at IBO Toolbox, my site visits dropped almost to nothing. By posting a new Press Release and interacting with my Associates, I was able to see an immediate upturn in my website visits to what I would consider an average level. Next I will drive them up even further through the integration of IBO Toolbox and my other Social Networks.

Add Your Social Networks to IBO Toolbox:
Get Started by adding your Social Networks to your IBO Toolbox Profile. With the recent changes at IBO Toolbox to increase connectivity with Facebook, it is important that your Fan Page be the first of your Facebook links in your Social Networks. Only the first six Social Networks are shown in the IBO Member Viewer although you may have as many Social Networks listed as you want.

*Note: I strongly suggest that your first six include: Fan Page, Google, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and your next Favorite.*

In IBO Toolbox SITE NAVIGATION select EDIT PROFILE. Scroll down to STEP 7 – Social Networks. In the SOCIAL NETWORKS EDITOR, for each entry, select the social network from the dropdown list. Enter the correct URL in the URL (link) box. Click [SAVE]. Repeat as necessary.

Available Networks – URL Structure:
Facebook: - or
MySpace: -
Twitter: -
LinkedIn: -
Delicious: -
Flickr: -
Blogger: -
Yahoo: -
Friendster: - (I couldn’t find the answer)
Google: - or
Digg: -
YouTube: -
Networked Blogs: -

*NOTE: Always Check Your Links. All too often I have tried to connect with someone only to find the link; incomplete, containing spaces, no longer available, email address or otherwise flawed. If you make people work for your links, many won’t even consider the effort. After you check your links, you might want to have an Associate check them. Most would be happy to help. Nove-Noga!*

Add your links to your Google Plus:
Go to your Google Plus Profile. (On the Google bar, Click your Icon. Then Click [View profile].) Below your Cover Page, Click [About]. Scroll down to Links and Click “Edit” at the bottom of the panel.

*NB: At the top you may see the Google+ URL that you have claimed. Or, the one available for you to claim.*

Note that the three areas in the Links panel are; Other profiles; Contributor to; and Links. Scroll down to “Other Profiles”. For each link, Click “Add custom link”. Enter the title and the URL. If you decide you have them in the wrong order, you can click the handle at the left edge of the entry and drag it to the desired position. While you are there, remember to update “Contributor to” and “Links” appropriately. When you have finished, scroll to the bottom and Click [Save].

*Note: Google has a nice feature. If it notices other Profiles linked to you, it will suggest them as additions to your Other Profiles.*

Add Twitter to LinkedIn:
Login to LinkedIn. Hover your mouse over your Icon at the right hand edge of the header bar, Select Privacy and Settings. In the Profile section under “Settings”, select “Manage your Twitter settings. Add your Twitter account and click the box to display your Twitter account on your LinkedIn profile. Then Click [Save changes]. (You can add multiple Twitter Accounts.) “Settings” is also where you can manage your WeChat settings. (Would anyone care to share information on this?)

While at LinkedIn you may want to take a moment and Select who can send you invitations. This should be “Anyone on LinkedIn”. Review your other settings and information and make changes as necessary.

Connect Twitter to your Facebook Account and Pages:
Open your Twitter Account. On the header bar, Click the Settings and Help Icon (Gear) and Select “Settings”. From the Menu, Select “Profile”. Scroll down to the Facebook button and Click [Connect to Facebook] to Post Tweets to your Facebook profile or page. In {Log in with Facebook} Click [Okay] to permit Twitter to receive info from Facebook. Click [Okay] again to permit Twitter to post to Facebook for you.

The default settings Allow Twitter to post retweets to Facebook and to post to my Facebook Profile. (Replies and direct messages will not be posted.)

You may also allow Twitter to post to one of your pages. Click “Allow”. In {Log in with Facebook} Click [Okay] to the message “Twitter would like to manage your Pages.” If you have more than one page, a drop down box will appear to allow you to choose which one.

Consider whether you will want your tweets posted to your Facebook Profile. You may choose only to permit the posts to your Facebook Page.

Review your Bio, website, photos, Name and Location for any changes you may wish to make. If you make any changes, Click [Save Changes].

Set your Facebook to repeat to Twitter:
In Facebook, Click the Menu Triangle and Select “Settings”. From the menu on the left, Click “Followers”. On the right, find Twitter and Click “Edit”. On the Facebook Twitter Settings page, Click [Link profile to Twitter]. Read the “Authorization” message and Click [Authorize app]. Review the setting and Click [Save Changes] if you make any changes.

Did you Link your Fan Pages to Twitter?
While you are on the Facebook Twitter settings page, you may as well do both.
For each Page, Click [Link to Twitter] and proceed as above.

While you are in Settings – Followers, Review your current settings.
Who Can Follow Me should be set to [Everybody]. Click [Close]
Follower Comments: Choose who can comment on your public posts; Everybody, Friends of Friends or Friends. Click [Close].
Follower Notifications: Choose to get notifications when people who aren’t your friends interact with you; Everybody, Friends of Friends or Nobody. Click [Close].

You might wish to take note of the Follow Plugin. This code can be added to your websites and pages to make it easier for people to Follow you on Facebook.

To Recap:
Tools – Your OneNote Setup pages for the information you need.

Tasks –  Add all of your Social Networks to IBO Toolbox; Add all of your other Social Networks to Google; Add Twitter to LinkedIn; Link Twitter to Facebook (I used one of my Fan Pages); Link Facebook to Twitter.

Strategies and Policies:
Now, your major Social Networks are easily visible at IBO Toolbox to make it easy to build your networks. Your Google Plus page contains all of the same links to be found in one of the most open networks. And you have tied your Facebook and Twitter pages together in a way to make the most of the connectivity between them and IBO Toolbox.

The way that I have things set up, a direct post from an IBOsocial page to my Facebook Profile or Pages has connectivity to draw visitors straight back to that IBOsocial page. A post Shared to Twitter is echoed to my Nove-Noga fan page with a link to my Twitter Account. And a post Shared to my Facebook Timeline is echoed to Twitter.

Getting Started with Your Social Networks - Facebook: IBO Toolbox PR by Curtiss Martin
The results are encouraging. Better ReTweets and better responses.

Building your Internet Marketing Business requires a lot more than simply putting up a page. Picture a small brick-and-mortar store opening in New York City. They take the time to find a good product. They put the store together attractively. And finally, they open the doors. Maybe a few of those walking by stop in for a look but most of those driving past are too busy with their own lives to even notice.

The store owner is going to have to put a Marketing Strategy into action. Possibly starting by getting to know his neighbors and what they have to offer. His interest in them is returned by interest in his own efforts. Friends are told and relationships begin to build. His attention will also turn to methods of publicity for his store. Does he buy advertising, publish in the local or regional papers, or even get involved in local events?

At IBO Toolbox we do this by making ourselves known to the IBO Toolbox community through our Press Releases and our interaction with our Associates. At the same time, our street traffic of around 200,000 visitors a day, are exposed to what we have to offer. With more activity comes better exposure. To increase our effectiveness we have a wide range of advertising opportunities.

Add your Social Networks into your communications efforts and you will soon have a powerful marketing machine ready to send your messages around the world. Even the brick-and-mortar stores have learned the value of Social Networking to create new business and to develop relationships. IBO Toolbox makes it easy. It is up to you to make it work. Nothing Ventured – Nothing Gained: Nove-Noga!
