I have been checking out a lot of books lately, as I work on trying to use my time more effectively and grow my business. I have a list of several books that I have found helpful and I will post the list on Friday, so stop back and take a look.
Today's book I found especially helpful and I think you should check it out. Its called
500 Internet Hints, Tips, and Techniques by Dan Oliver.
This book is full of inside secrets to Blogger, Flickr, Facebook, You Tube, Twitter, My Space, Google Calendar, and more. Each page gives you tips on how to set up an account on each site, short cuts, and links to sites that will make each site better. It has screen shots for each tip, easy to follow instructions, and it is a quick read. Read through the whole book or just the information you need.
Its a book you will go to often and worth owning.
Also, in this series is 500 Simple Website Hints, Tips and Techniques by Jamie Freeman and 500 Photoshop Hints, Tips, and Techniques by Mike Crawford.
All the books are available on the right side of my blog, just click on the title you want and it will take you right to Amazon.com.
Quick update on last weeks post
I spent several days working on my Etsy and 1000 Market shops and I have them just about where I want them. I need to add a few more items and change a few photo's but both sites are much better.
This next week on I am working on all those social sites I have profiles on and I am going to eliminate some and update the sites I am going to keep. After next week I hope to dedicate a day to working on each venue, making each more effective and controlling how much time I spend online.
Are you on a lot of social sites (We love Etsy, Indiepublic, etc)? Do you find them effective in helping your business? How much time do you spend on these sites? Any ideas to make the experience better? Please Share!
