    So Monday it was raining and I decided to try something. I made a video for my aeration service. I posted it to youtube as well as on my website and my Facebook page for my business. Today ( Wednesday) I had three calls that said they've seen the video! Crazy!


    I'm thinking about doing one for leaf removal once the leaves start falling.

    I delete personal friends who try to pedal their business stuff on Facebook. No warning, no goodbye...deleted! I'm glad you put it on your business page and that it's working for you.

    All this social media is relationship overload. I am ready to delete my Facebook account. I don't know how people have time to go on there all the time. Between running my business and spending time with my family my spare time is much too important for that garbage.

    Like it or not, it is rapidly becoming the most efficient way to get the word out about your business. I'm just simply using the resources that available to me.

    I think you're right; lots of companies have facebook accounts now. Reminds me of an old shampoo commerical where they say "we told two friends" and they say "and we told two friends", etc. Your exposure can rapidly multiply with all of the links between friends.

    There's even a song about it now...this guy is a friend of mine (in real life, not on facebook, lol). He's actor Art Carney's grandson BTW.
