Use them also for planning business or group travel. Book your travel through their travel partners and help make the world a better place at the same time.
They’ve joined with key travel and related firms that have excellent e-commerce infrastructures including vast selections, superb prices, secure servers, 24/7 customer support, and a commitment to corporate responsibility. They hope you’ll book with them and this is how they derive revenues. All they ask is that you connect to these businesses in the future through their website otherwise they don’t get credit for your purchases; this means only one extra click of your mouse. It’s easy to change the world when you make the right clicks. Bookmark them and watch for the palm tree in your list of other bookmarks.

Running a Social Marketing Campaign can be a effective marketing tool for your business when properly executed. If you decide to hire a professional marketing firm ensure that you do your research on their credentials. Watch this blog this month for tips on how to choose a Internet Marketing firm.
Here are some 5 basic keys to a successful running a social marketing campaign.
1) Daily Updates
This one may seem obvious, but some people forget that regular updates on your Facebook/Twitter page are critical to capturing the attention of your customers. If a potention customers goes to your social marketing page and post are irregular, more than a month old, etc, then they won’t see any value in following you.
2) Think Value Not Selling!
Customers will start to follow you and engage in conversation if you have something interesting or valuable to say. They aren’t looking to get your product or service stuffed down their throats. Position your page as the expert in your industry with valuable information or entertaining facts and you will increase your following.
3) Respond and Engage
Keep a close eye on your social marketing pages and respond to comments from your customers. Engage them in conversation! Make comments on other pages within your industry or on pages that your customers would find interesting or important. Become a member of the social media world.
4) Start a trend
Posting a tip or sale or featured product every week on the same day will get customers checking back with you to get the latest information. For example, post your daily soup or lunch special or a weekly featured used vehicle. Tie this feature in value added coupons or discounts to drive foot traffic into your business from your social media page.
Posting a sign in your business encouraging people to follow you, adding your website and social media pages to your print material, post links to your website from your social media pages and link to your social media pages from your website. Creating a cohesive marketing strategy will ensure your success.
