My Friday Social Media Checklist Friday, Mar 4 2011 

Sometimes it’s helpful to know what someone else is doing to promote their business via social media marketing in order to get ideas and spark creative flow for yourself, so here’s a quick run-down of what I accomplished this week…

  • Put up two blog posts per day on Social Media Salon and three this week on Pennies for a Rainy Day
  • Added several new links to Social Media Salon’s blogroll
  • Joined Post Rank and Blog Catalog
  • Joined My Blog Spark
  • Joined Quora (finally)
  • Joined word of mouth marketing sites Vocal Point, She Speaks, and Buzz Paradise
  • Joined Who’s Blogging What, Social Media Examiner, Gold Lasso, and Biz Report’s e-newsletters
  • Watched Hubspot webinar, Website Redesign Strategy

So much of getting things done in social media is about keeping informed, researching, and joining.

Hope all of you had a productive week in social media.

Have a great weekend!

Trendstop Offers Customers New iPad Galleries Friday, Mar 4 2011 

Yesterday’s Trendstop newsletter announced that they will now offer backstage and graduate galleries. These are premium in-app downloads which can be purchased from the free iPad Trend Tracker app and can be downloaded right from Apple’s app store.

Though I haven’t downloaded the mobile apps yet, I am an e-newsletter subscriber and fan of Trendstop. For those of you who aren’t familiar, Trendstop is a leading fashion trending resource invaluable to companies, writers, and fashion stylists alike, offering insider info. on colors, fabrics, prints, and more, and well over a year in advance no less. If I do finally download the app I’ll be sure to post and let you know how it works.

As the fashion industry has slowly gone digital Trendstop has seemed a little less reluctant than some to jump into the digital world with both feet and this new app should prove to make many clients happy.

If you’re interested in trying this new app feature, go to in your phone’s browser, or download it from the Apple iTunes Store, or Android Market.
