Interviewing Grandma Mary about Being a Social Media Manager and How To Price Your Services

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing the amazing Grandma Mary. I hope you already know who she is…If not, please explore her world here and here.

We covered a lot of interesting territory for new social media managers in under 10 minutes!

Here are the questions I asked her:

  • Pricing is a big topic – how did you figure our yours?
  • How did you get new clients – and what do they say when they first meet you? :-)
  • Stroll down memory lane – how did it feel when you made that first $1000?
  • How do you stay current and leading edge with all the social media changes?
  • How much time do you sit at the computer? Is it all work?
  • What’s coming up in your world?

Social Media Marketing Webinar – Convert Views into Revenue – hosted by iPhone Life magazine


Here’s the update on the social media marketing webinar I gave for the people connected to iPhone Life magazine. First of all, I had a blast going through some great actionable things app developers and small businesses can do right now on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and more.

Here the link to their blog post follow up.

And here’s a bit of their post:

This past Tuesday we hosted a fantastic webinar with Social Media Expert Phyllis Khare. She gave us a sneak preview into her full Social Media Ninja workshop program. The webinar was a huge success, and for those of you who missed it, below you can play a recording of it (it’s just over one hour long). A lot of people asked for the Powerpoint Slides and for the information about her full program, which includes a one-on-one consultation with Phyllis, 60 days of unlimited email support, and full access to her learning center, where she has video tutorials that show you how to rock YouTube, Facebook, Google+, and LinkedIn.

There’s a lot of specific information on their blog post about this special program I created for their community. If you are an app developer, or small business owner — you should go and read about it. The spaces are filling up pretty quick!

Here’s the webinar recording — you can go to their post to see the slideshare presentation, too.

Protect your photos with the iWatermark iPhone app


Sometimes I’ll take what I think is a really good photo and want to share them on my social sites, but have in the back of my head I’d like to protect them, just in case I decide to use the photo in a business project down the road. I used to think – well — I’ll have to take it over to Photoshop and create a watermark to project it. I might be a bit later to the game, but there is a wonderful app that is so much easier than using Photoshop — iWatermark by Plum Amazing.
