Interview on Entrepreneur Magazine


The question: How Does Internet Marketing Work? What Do You Do?

Keith Tacla states, “Were using social media sites like Facebook, Myspace, and, Twitter to just name a few, and a bunch of other social media sites to blog about your products or services with the objective of building business relationships online. Then once you’ve created followers at a large scale, a pack if u will. These followers become brand ambassadors for your company. They are going to sell your services for you and, that’s what it's about! It’s like me explaining to you how to make friends and, we all know there is a process to that and, online there are ways of making friends fast and effectively for your business and this is where we come in to help you. It’s just like going to a networking event where you may make a few business relationships while talking with people. Afterwards, you still need to follow-up and keep building the relationship with them. The same process in used online except imagine instead, one interaction can turn into 10,000 interactions with a quick click of a mouse on a structured Social Media Website Internet Marketing Strategy.”

Keith continues, “Were specialists in making friends online and, building communities online, these communities have your website/billboard shining outside their home everyday. Soon they are almost forced to, if not DO business with you, then at least they will check your company out and tell one of their friends about what you have to offer. You need to know how to put your website/billboard in Times Square NYC instead of a Corn Field in Iowa. Location, this is what we can help you do with building virtual traffic roads to your website. These communities are going to come together and, this is creating search and it's that simple. People TRUST their friends and if a potential client TRUSTED what you have to offer they will do business with you. They may not TRUST your company website by a quick browse but, they TRUST they're friends' recommendations on what companies are good.”

Keith concludes, “We are pre-qualifying your clients on your products and services before they call so, they already know what they want from you without any selling involved. Just like the selling method I use to have businesses owners understand this concept and, how much they need the power of the Internet to market for them to grow their companies. Now extracting the right friends and groups you find online is where we help you to tie everything together so it’s the most efficient for your company and once structure the monetary results will follow.”

I know everyone is busy (as am i) but i wanted to answer 1 very important question I'm hearing everyday:

A small business customer quote:
"So Justin, what is social networking, internet marketing, and this whole twitter thing? How can it help my business? Do i need to look into it?"- prospect

5 keys to twitter success for small businesses on the internet

Seth Godin- Social media/ social networking expert always does short blog posts so I figured I would have a shot at it. I am often asked, “So twitterholic justinrfrench, what are the key factors you would suggest to fellow entrepreneurs & business owners so here are my top 5 CURRENT recommendations:

1. Business & Tech- Being both knowledgeable in the foundations of Business & Information Technology can be a huge benefit to any business owner.

2. Transparency- Try to be more transparent as a business owner- just tell your story online and watch who listens. You will be amazed.

3. Great Communication- but being able to have creative & meaning behind your communication is even more important.

4. Organization- is key. If your business life is disorganized, you may be missing out on business opportunities

5. People- Pay it forward- always give back to your community, fiends, and clients. You will go a lot further this way and remember to have full transparency.

Please subscribe to our new blog here which is dedicated strictly to social networking and social media for business

Top 5 Lessons Learned in January about Social Media, Social Networking, Twitter and Business

Top 5 Lessons Learned in January about Social Media,
Social Networking, Twitter, and Business




With all of the current hype and news on Web 2.0, Social Media, Social Networking, Twitter, and the bailout, I take this time to reflect on this past month- January 2009. Lets all just take a deep breath, count to 3, and begin to realize how much information overload we really have; or the lack of proper filtering. I, justinrfrench break it all down for you here. I give you the full Entrepreneurial, Business Minded, Tech Guru, Social Media/ Social Networking addict, twitterholic synopsis with-out leaving your seat!

If there is one blog site you're going to read about the growing trends in social networking for business, internet marketing for business, social media for business, or any of the other Web 2.0 solutions for business then I HIGHLY suggest you keep reading this blog.

I would hope after reading this, you would be kind enough to pay it forward, re-tweet this blog, subscribe to this blog, and help spread the word about this revolution occurring because we have only touched the tip of the iceberg on what is to come from my team and I in the not to distant future. If you think Google, Apple, and Microsoft were big, wait till twitter, justinrfrench, and his followers get on the map! You won't want to miss this 21st century bailout we are giving businesses on a silver platter.

For all my fellow twitterholics, followers, alliances, and partners I have formed over the years, I dedicate my mission and personal journey to you. This year I will fully dedicate myself to being the driving force for spreading the word to all Southern California businesses to help educate, instruct, and consult their firms on how to best utilize a social media workflow system tailored around their company.

Here are my Top 5 Lessons Learned (in no particular order) of what you or your business can gain from my summary of the month on the above topics:

1. Lesson 1- Barack Obama has proven to be more of a leader than I thought. After even talking about setting a cap on CEO pay- he became my hero. MOST CEO's (not all) are over paid, under delivering to shareholders, and quite frankly do not know how to lead in today's 21st century and need a full makeover in upper management. Small businesses will be what gets us through these tough times as Obama states, so start finding how you can fit into this paradigm puzzle.

2. Lesson 2- Sign up and start using twitter right now! The best business social networking tool I've seen in the last 5 years! If you have not signed up on twitter, heard of twitter, or been active on twitter, then you are already behind. If you are a true business person, then you already know the importance of first mover advantage so I suggest you get on board. Just Google "twitter" and get going. If you need twitter training, instruction, or consulting on how to use twitter for business, I have teams of consultants that will come to your office and train, tutor, and educate you on the importance of twitter. After you sign up, make sure you follow me on twitter at CLICK HERE TO FOLLOW JUSTIN

3. Lesson 3- Is all this social media, social networking hype really for my business? I thought MySpace and Facebook were for teens and young adults. YES! If your business does not form some type of internet marketing strategy today then you will not be in business tomorrow. I guarantee I can think of one or two social media sites or social networking sites for business that will be beneficial in some way to growing your business.

4. Lesson 4- What is Social Networking San Diego, Why does my business need to know about this site, and how will it benefit my business? "Social Networking San Diego supports and educates businesses on the value and growing trend in social networking, social media, social marketing, and internet marketing for business. This trend in social networking and social media for business has been packaged together for local companies to use as a proven internet marketing system and online advertising strategy to focus on lead generation and driving traffic to company websites in turn generating new business."- justinrfrench

5. Lesson 5- What Social Media/ Social Networking sites does twitterholic justinrfrench suggest to lay the proper foundation for my business to start gaining a better presence online?
a. Twitter
b. Linked-in
c. Friend feed
d. Facebook
e. Word Press

I look forward to your comments, recommendations, or insight on this post- don't be shy. yours truly-
