How To Get Nothing Done: A Simple Illustrated Guide

I came across this while browsing the Internet the other day, while I was supposed to be working, no doubt. Since I am a master at how to get nothing done, I thought this graphic tells it perfectly.

Do you do this?  I sure do ... more often than I'd like to admit.  I am in a constant state of distraction.  Facebook, emails, phone calls, a variation of windows open at the same time, with me multi-tasking in each one of them ...  I wear myself out.  Then the day is done and I haven't accomplished nearly as much as I had set out to do.

I could just shut off of these distractions off, of course. But I might miss something, you know?  News gets updated, somebody wants to share a funny photo, which I'll have to share in return because it's just so funny, or cute, or ...  Well, I don't have to explain this to you. Chances are you do the same, right?Anyway, check this out. Then join me in trying to be more productive by doing the very opposite when we have a project to or work that has to be done.  Good luck! and let me know how it goes for you!

STORY BUMPING on FACEBOOK TIPS

With Facebook's recent changes to their News Feed algorithm, known as EdgeRank, posts that are getting more engagement (more likes, comments and shares) get bumped up in the news feed.  I am about to share with you how you can use Story Bumping on Facebook to increase visitors to your fanpage, and keep your content fresh.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Story Bumping on Facebook allows you to see posts you may not have seen when they were first published.  Say you log into Facebook and scroll through your news feed to view 30 posts. The post you miss at position 31 continues to get lots of likes, comments and shares. Four hours later, you check Facebook and that post is at the top of your news feed, even though it’s four hours old.  How did that happen?  This bump depends on several factors.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

HOW CAN STORY BUMPING ON FACEBOOK HELP YOUR MARKETING?

There are several reasons why Story Bumping is good news for Facebook marketers.  In tests done by Facebook, there was an 8% increase in likes, comments and shares on stories posted by pages.

 

HOW TO USE STORY BUMPING ON FACEBOOK- TIP #1

#1: Not Everyone Sees Every Post in Their News Feed

The average person has the potential to see over 1500 posts every day. Facebook's algorithm helps you see the most interesting things. It does this by watching your behavior and then showing you more of the things they think you want to see.

The things that affect Facebook's algorithm are:

    - How often you interact with the friend, page or public figure (like an actor or journalist) who posted

    - The number of likes, shares and comments a post receives from the world at large and from your friends in particular

    - How much you’ve interacted with this type of post in the past

    - Whether you and other people across Facebook are hiding or reporting a given post.

 

MAKE USE OF FACEBOOK'S INTEREST LIST

To make sure you see posts from certain people or pages, you’ll need to create a Facebook Interest List. These Interest Lists keep track of the people you find most interesting and want to keep track of on Facebook.

Encourage your fans to create INTEREST LISTS that include your Page. They get notifications about your Page by clicking on the "LIKE" button under the right side of your cover photo and selecting Get Notifications. This is where they can add your Page to INTEREST LISTS, where they will see your updated notifications.

 

HOW TO USE STORY BUMPING ON FACEBOOK - TIP #2

#2: Story Bumping Helps Lengthen the Shelf Life of Your Posts

Metrics studies have shown that it only takes 2 hours and 30 minutes for a post to get 75% of its total impressions and less than 2 hours to get 75% of its maximum reach. So you have a very short window of time to get engagement.

With Story Bumping, your story jumps back up in the news feed if it gets good engagement.  Without Story Bumping, your post gets 75% of its reach in less than 2 hours.

 

HOW TO USE STORY BUMPING ON FACEBOOK - TIP #3

#3: Engagement is Key

You MUST increase your Facebook engagement. How? Be remarkable. Be interesting. Ask questions.  ENGAGE people!  Be a source of information that’s so valuable to your readers that they do whatever they will look for your posts. Get to know your audience and test, test, test.

The great thing about the new Facebook Insights is they show you exactly which posts are the most engaging, so you can model those types of posts more often.  To see the engagement rate on each post, go to Insights, select Posts and then choose Engagement Rate from the drop-down menu.  The best thing about this is that it calculates how many people actually saw your post, so you get a true measure of engagement.  Study this and analyze what works and what doesn't.  

 

HOW TO USE STORY BUMPING ON FACEBOOK - TIP #4

#4: Facebook Page Post Ads Provide an Extra Boost

You don't have to spend money on Facebook to increase engagement on your page, but you can expand your audience by spending a little now and then.  Watch for the type of post that you have most engagement with, and boost those for even greater engagement.  You'll be amazed at what this can do for your page.

The Boost Post option has a very wide target if you select “People who like your page and their friends,” which may include a lot of people who have no interest in your Facebook page. If you select “People you choose through targeting” option, you can only target people by location, age, gender and language—not by keyword interests, which again may include a lot of people not interested in your Facebook page.

The best way to get more engagement on a post is to narrow your targeting by using the Facebook ads interface and selecting Promote Page Posts. Select "Promote Page Posts", and then choose the post you want to promote in the drop-down menu.

Then, in the Targeting section, you can choose to advertise your post to only your own fans or use the Precise Interests area to target the post to people who would be more inclined to like your page and interact with your post.

The Facebook ads interface also gives you control of your budget.  Keep track your results and do your testing. To really go for more engagement, only advertise posts that are interesting and already getting some engagement organically so you know they interest others.

Story Bumping on Facebook isn’t a total solution to getting your pages get seen more in the Facebook news feed, but it does help to gain your page's popularity.

[BOOKS] - The 4 Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferriss

The 4 Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferriss
  - Escape 9 to 5 and live the life of the New Rich.

This is how I am spending my weekend - studying this book, the 4 Hour Work Week.

I am currently on one of the exercise in the book. This blog is about taking action now. This is an activity I can do right now, in my business, that only takes me mintes to do and can make me money on auto pilot. 

The real secret is ... ACTION. Plain and simple.  But there is a bit more to it than that. You will find the answers if you listen to and/or read this suggested book.

I like to read the book as I listen to audios.  I think it works better for me, and I can focus on a deeper level the meanings of the words of this great text.

I am on the path to totaly freedom.  Freedom from the grind of the 9-5 that is so depressing. This freedom is accessible for everyone, even you if you believe. 

I don't plan on going back to working in an office ever again. But instead I work from the location of my laptop. not bound by office or location.

If you are looking for some of this freedom, looking for a way to love your dream - like described in this audio book - then I invite you to come and join me and our team.  

For more information- please check out other blog postings, CLICK ON THIS LINK, or contact me for more information.

The 4 Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss is an excellent, must-read book if you are tied down to a job that you dislike ... whether it is the job itself, or if it's simply working a 9-5 routine that gets you down.

     "There is a new subculture of people in the world who have figured out that the 9-5 grindstone doesn’t really fire up their imaginations to any great degree. Instead, they organize their lives and follow a set of uncommon rules which typically allows them to work less than four hours a week but earn more in a month than most people do in a year. These people are the “New Rich”(NR). They abandon the conventional deferred-life plan (work now and retire later) and instead develop their own signature lifestyles which utilize the currencies of the New Rich: time and mobility."
