I Want to Get Back with My Ex Girlfriend! Advice You Need to Follow Beginning Today

I want to get back with my ex girlfriend,” said the man unable to move on after his break up. That man is you. You’re stuck on how wonderful your life was when you were with your girlfriend. You loved each and every moment you spent with her and there isn’t a minute that goes by without you longing to be with her again. The problem is that everything you’ve tried thus far to get her back has failed miserably. You’re no closer to being with her again and in fact, you fear that you may have pushed her away even more. Something has to change now. You’re tired of trying to live without her and you know, deep in your heart, that you two definitely belong together.

One approach to winning her back that has a great deal of merit is to start over with her. You have to view the failed relationship as a painful part of your past. If you try and resurrect that relationship, as it was, it will only cause a lot of resentment and bitter feelings in your ex. You two broke up because things weren’t working. Unless you approach this from a stronger and more positive place, it won’t work again. You must begin your mission to get her back by making a vow to yourself that you won’t drudge up the past at all. When you talk to her promise yourself that you won’t bring up what happened or what caused the break up. Leave those things in the past where they belong.

You also must work on making yourself into a person you know she’ll be attracted to. You have a distinct advantage over any other man she comes in contact with only because you already know what she finds irresistible in a man. Look honestly at your faults and then decide what you could change for the better. It’s hard to evaluate our own weaknesses but draw from what your girlfriend told you when you two were together. If she mentioned that she wished you were more sensitive or had a better sense of humor, focus on those things. Show her that you’ve used the time wisely since you two have broken up.

Allow her to move forward at her own pace. If you try and push your ex girlfriend into getting back together with you before she’s ready it will be a disaster. She’ll resent you for it and she’ll pull back so far that she won’t allow you any access to her again. Give her the space and time she needs to come to her own conclusion that you’re the right guy for her after all. Just remain committed to showing her the best side of you.

The things you do after your breakup will either set the stage for a reunion with your girlfriend or will ensure she’s gone for good.

There are guaranteed ways to get her back regardless of why you two split. If you’re tired of feeling heartbroken and if you’re worried about her meeting a new guy, now is the time to get her back for good.

Tags in Facebook Wall Posts – How to Make Them, When to Use Them and Why You Would Want to

Tags in Facebook Wall Posts – How to Make Them, When to Use Them and Why You Would Want to

“Tagging” is one of the most powerful tools on Facebook. A “tag” is basically a link you create to a person, page or group on Facebook that you place within your wall posts, photos or notes. When you “tag” a person in a wall post Facebook, your post will automatically appear on their wall as well as on your own. If you tag them in a photo or note, it will appear in their updates.

Here are some guidelines of HOW you put tags in a Facebook post:

When you type an “@” sign into a wall post, Facebook recognises that as a signal you want to tag someone. Let’s say you wanted to tag “Mary Jane Smith” in your post. You would start by typing “@Mary” (important: do not put a space after the @ sign) and then WAIT a second or two. Facebook will open up a window with everyone in your friends list whose names have “Mary” in them. When you see Mary’s name, CLICK on my picture, and she will be tagged. You will know the tag is activated because the full name “Mary Jane Smith” will turn blue, and it will turn into a link that takes you to my profile page.
You can tag a maximum of 6 names in a single wall post.
You can also tag PAGES or GROUPS. Just follow exactly the same steps as above.
As mentioned above, when you tag a person, page or group in a post, your post will appear on THEIR wall automatically. This is a great way to spread messages virally and it also means that the parties you are talking to or about will see your message without checking their updates.
The other advantage to tagging is that NEW people will see you who might not have seen you before, especially if you are tagging to a page or a group. Anyone who checks out the group or fan page will see your post.
You can also tag people in a note or a photo. There is a section on the right side of the note that lets you create tags exactly the same way as above. You can tag more people in a note or photo than in a wall post (Current limit is 30).
NOTE: You cannot put a tag in a comment. You can, however, put a web link in a comment.

 

Now here’s the obvious question: WHY would you want to tag someone?

One way to use tagging is to tag people, groups or fan pages to say something nice about them or to help spread some news that would be of interest to the people (or members of the page/group) being tagged. Here are a couple of examples of when you might use tagging to a page or group:

If you want to share some news about the page or group to you profile page (such as a new blog post, event, book, video, radio show or other news item THEY have posted). In this case, you might post the news to your personal Facebook profile, but tag the page/group in the post. That way, it will appear on their wall, and they will see you are helping to spread the word about their good work.
If you see or create a news item, tip, video, event, etc., you think would be of interest to the members of the group or fans of the page, but you also want your own friends to see it, you might post the news to your wall, and then tag the page or group. For instance, if I wanted to bring a post to the attention of a page I had called “Really, Really Good Authors Circle” (that’s not a real page, by the way), I might say, “All you Really, Really Good Authors Circle people, you might find this useful”, with the name of the business page tagged).

 

Below is an example of how I would create a post on Facebook about a new page one of my networking friends started. First, I would “share” the page use the “share” link on the home page of the fan page, and then I would write a tagged post to bring attention to it to other people (note: the names below are NOT real Facebook profiles or fan pages, and the underlined names below are only to show where the tags/links would appear):

Just discovered my good friend Mary Jane Smith‘s new page The Really, Really Good Book Marketer. She is a wealth of information. Fans of my Really, Really Good Authors Circle and members of John Jones‘s Great New Writers Group, check out Mary’s page and “Like” it for great tips.

 

Note there are fivetags in the post:
1) Mary Jane Smith’s personal page;
2) Mary Jane Smith’s business page “The Really, Really Good Book Marketer”;
3) My own “Really, Really Good Authors Circle” business page;
4) John Jones’s personal profile and
5) John’s “Great New Writers Group” group. Note I put a space after the tag when I am using an apostrophe. I did that to ensure the link doesn’t get broken (it has happened on occasion).

Recently I wrote a similar post to the example above and, when you take all the tags into consideration, that single post was visible to over 5000 people, just about all of them authors. Within just a few minutes of sharing that post, I noticed the person whose fan page I tagged increased by 5 members. Not bad for a post that took a few seconds to compose.

In this post, I am not only helping the person who owns the fan page by sharing her page and saying something nice about her, but I am also helping the other people I have tagged in the post, because they are a targeted group of authors, all hungry for new information about book promotion. Furthermore, because I “shared” the “Really, Really Good Book Marketer” page, people will see the logo and description of the page, which makes the post far more visible and attractive than words alone, and makes people far more likely to check it out than if it were a simple link.

But the beauty of this is that Iam also gaining from this. How?

Because I am being seen as someone who likes to give value to others. And because of this, people enjoy staying connected to me. Furthermore, because the tags make the post appear on the other person’s profile and fan pages, new people might see ME and my business page on her page and check me out as well. If they perceive me as being someone who can offer good value to them, they are likely to seek me out as a connection or “Like” my business page. These days, I have more Facebook invitations than I can keep up with.

IMPORTANT TAGGING NETIQUETTE:

NEVER abuse tagging to SPAM your Facebook friends or Facebook pages. Spamming means that you just tag people for the sake of them paying attention to a promotion you are doing. Do NOT do this. If you want to invite people to a promotion, create an event, business page or group and invite them to join voluntarily. If you are running a promotion, go ahead and post it in your updates, but don’t tag people in the updates unless they have something to do with the promotion OR you know them very well personally, and they would wish to know what’s happening (e.g., if you are launching your book, and close friends and family would like to be informed).
Don’t be a Facebook “squatter” or “poacher” on other people’s pages. By “squatter” I mean someone who uses tags or hangs out on someone else’s business page ONLY to promote themselves. By “poacher” I mean someone who joins pages solely to find people to invite to their own pages. For instance, if I had gone to “Mary Jane Smith’s” page and said, “Hey all you Really, Really Good Marketer fans! I’m the best thing since sliced bread. Come on over to my page,” that would be pretty tacky. Now, if “Mary Jane Smith” said such a thing about me to her own fans, that would be completely different.

 

What I am showing you here are some of the fundamentals of social networking, and indeed what I call “spirit-based” marketing. Social networking is the cornerstone of my business and of all the promotional platforms I help authors create for their books. But even though it is a powerful tool for your book promotion, always remember that the key to spirit-based social networking is to help others, and to gain a reputation as someone who willingly and joyfully helps others, trusting that there is enough business and prosperity in the world for all of us.

Tags in Facebook are very powerful if you use them correctly. Use them with sincerity, creativity and generosity, and over time you will see your network grow and your business flourish.

Besides… I think they’re FUN.

So You Want to Quote a Price on a Freelance Writing-Editing Assignment?

So You Want to Quote a Price on a Freelance Writing-Editing Assignment?

As a member of the Hong Kong Women in Publishing Society, and as a marketing consultant, editor and copywriter, I’m often asked to advise fellow members (and non-members) about how much they should charge for freelance writing/editing assignments.

I always tell them it’s impossible for me to give a definitive answer, because no two assignments are the same, and no two freelancers are the same. Everything (well, ALMOST everything) is negotiable.

If you’re pondering how much to charge for a freelance assignment when a prospective client asks you for a quote, you need to consider MANY factors, including:

What is the nature of your business relationship with the client? Have they been a loyal, eay-to-get-along-with client for a long time, or this a one-off assignment with a new client?
What is the nature of the assignment? Has the client briefed you clearly about what THEY mean by “copywriting”, “editing”, “proofreading”…? (For example, when a client asks you to “edit” some text, do they expect just a cursory spell-check; fixing the grammar/style/punctuation according to a given style manual; ensuring consistency of style/layout/spelling/punctuation etc from one chapter to the next; commenting on the actual content and logic of the piece; fact-checking; identifying and fixing any problems with the political correctness and cultural appropriateness of the text; making the text more compelling from a marketing point of view; marking it up for the graphic designer, or what?)
Is the client used to working with freelancers, or will you have to spend a lot of time and energy educating them about the process?
How complex is the work?
Will you have to do a lot of research?
How long do you think it will take you to complete the assignment?
How urgent is the deadline?
How experienced are you?
How much profit do you want/need to make?
How desperately do you want/need the work?
Is freelance writing/editing your full-time business or just a little hobby?
How desperately does the client want/need you?
How much is the work (or rather the results of your work) worth to the client?
Has the client paid your past invoices promptly?
How much do you like this client? Are the people easy and enjoyable to work with, or are they hard-ass negotiators who demand 17 rounds of revisions? Are they well organised? Are the lines of communication and accountability clearly defined?
Is the client expecting you to be available whenever they need you, at short notice (meaning that you’ll have to forgo opportunities with other clients)?
How much have you charged them in the past?
Do you want to brand yourself as “the cheapest in the market”, “around about the middle” or “Rolls Royce”?
Do you have unique skills and experience that no-one else can offer?
Will the client provide support/resources, i.e. will you do the work in their office, or in your own home/office? Will they provide secretarial help, access to a photocopier and phone, meals…?
How long is this deal likely to last? (One week, six months, ten years?)
How many rounds of revisions will you include within your quote?
How much do you think the client is willing/able to pay?
Has the client specified a budget for the assignment/project?
Is the client a big multinational company, a one-person business, a small local charity…?
Will there be any out-of-pocket expenses? Will you absorb those costs yourself or will you bill the client extra for reimbursement of those expenses?
If the task is to edit some existing text, how good/bad is that text? Was it written by a native speaker of the language?
Do you plan to charge by the word, by the page, by the hour, by the project…? A monthly retainer? A percentage of sales or profits?
What is your bottom-line, non-negotiable minimum fee?
Is this the right client/assignment for you? Does it match your skills, background and values?
How much do YOU think you’re worth?

Want To Get Top Google Rankings With Backlinks? Then Read This

Want To Get Top Google Rankings With Backlinks? Then Read This

A smart tip to build your backlinks is to go out of the way to do it. In other words, while the others are busy buying links or using the traditional link exchange, you can think out of the box to build links creatively. You need to think about what that webmaster requires because that’s the key to getting him to link to your site.

One great way to do this is to give things out, such as themes or widgets, that have your link on them to your site. People offer things to others all the time online, and all they ask is for that simple backlink. You might try this and you’ll see that the backlinks just flood to you. It won’t even cost you much since you can hire a cheap programmer/designer and get the work done. You will find that this is a great way to do it because if you can provide something that people want to share, then you’ll see loads of backlinks coming your way.

You can even try the voting sites like Digg where you can get lots of backlinks if you know what you’re doing. Since these sites are as popular as they are, Google lends them a lot of weight. Not only that, but these sites also contain great information that’s always updated. Google will take sites like these and will make sure all eyeballs can see them, because the sites offer information people can use. The search engines all hold these sites in very high regard. What you should be trying to do is get the most out of these websites without people thinking you’re just sending spam.

What if there was a way you could get the backlinks you wanted and anyone could do it? Have you ever considered that there are many backlinks to be had through the forums and discussion boards? You can always sign up for these forums and then put your backlink in your signature section. You’ll want to comment as much as possible so as to build a following, where they’ll always know what link to click. Your site gets exposed more to the other members, but you’re also getting that backlink which will take you far. Finally, only choose those forums that have to do with the niche you’re working with, or else you won’t rank where you want to.

In conclusion, these tips can get you far with link building, but this is only the beginning. As with anything, the longer you do it, the more you’ll learn about those other tips.
