I found a great video about Google Analytics Magic:

From TommyIsMyName, a video about the new Facebook pages:

From my friend, Christopher S. Penn and Blue Sky Factory, a quick tour of Publicaster 7, their email marketing solution. The reason I’m pointing this out, is because I found all kinds of software walkthroughs that would help you better choose what tools you want to use:

    I think Tommy does a great job in his video, its surprising that FaceBook wasn’t so thorough with its “tour”. Thanks, some great tips in there…

    Hi Chris. Thanks for sharing the videos. It makes it much easier to learn looking rather than reading :). Google analytics rock – once you get your head around all the various options, it’s a great way of keeping tabs on what’s going on with your site.

    I’ve just started into the weekly video thing – some weeks are information and some are training. Either way, I have definitely seen a great response to them. People like to see who you are on a more personal level and video makes that possible

    Retention for adult learning is about 30% for visuals 20% for hearing and 10% for reading….so our blogging efforts should include a mixture of all types methods.

    Loved the Google Analytics video.. i am sure that it will help others too. I personally prefer video tutorials to ebooks and other reading materials. not only for your social media marketing, Visual media is any time better then others for everything

    Recently, i am not putting much efforts on social media tools like Twitter or Facebook because of lack of time….I have to definitely plan for putting more time that trigger after seeing the word “efforts” from your blog post !

    Thanks chris !

    Hey Chris, thanks for the link! Sorry I didn’t swing by to thank you sooner. My ego feeds are totally messed up of late. If postrank doesn’t catch it and I miss it in on your feed in my reader, then I’m clueless. :)
