Hi everyone! Hope you had a great and productive week. Isn’t just the “marketing” community amazing? Last week, QuickSprout has launched their free online marketing education called QuickSprout University, and this week, I stumbled upon the free series of ebooks by Copyblogger Media. In these ebooks, everything is laid out exactly why content marketing is what works … and how to do it effectively. To get this entire series of valuable ebooks, in addition to a 20-part Internet marketing course, all you need to do is register for Copyblogger (it’s free). Like I said, amazing. If you want to learn online marketing, these resources are simply great. Well, you can browse this marketing section too.

Google-custom-URLAlso this week, Google+ has started to roll out “custom URLs” (vanity) for some users. If you are lucky, you will probably see a message from Google+ immediately after you log in to your account. In my case, I happened to be notified by Google+ this week and I have to admit that I am quite happy. Imagine that from the several thousands (if not hundreds of thousands) of people out there with the same name as me, I actually was able to secure https://plus.google.com/+FranciscoPerez/. How cool is that :) How about you? Did you get your custom G+ URL yet? If not, be on the look out. And BTW, just in case you don’t know, Google+ does reserve the right to eventually charge you for having a vanity URL. Check out the TOS.

And finally, Twitter created another account for everyone to follow. This time it’s called @TwitterAdTips, an account specifically built for Twitter’s advertisers. According to MarketingLand, it promises “personalized tips to improve your Twitter Ads account performance.” And it’s going to share those tips via Direct Messages. Great to see that Twitter is evolving its direct message system into a marketing and engagement tool.

As usual, in no particular order:

SEO & Internet Marketing

Social/Blogging/Small Business Bites

More cool stuff!

That’s it! Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Nice speedlinks DiTesco. I got my personal vanity URL right away but I’m still waiting for Hot Blog Tips. I hope I didn’t miss the invite or something.

Here’s another Twitter test account if you haven’t already heard of it. You follow them and Twitter will DM you recommended Tweeps to follow based on your history (I think) as well as recommended content.

I got both +daviddoolin and +websiteinaweekendnet.

I could have used to lose the net off the end of that, but whatever, I’ll take it!

Signed up for the new copyblogger material as well. Looks good. Wish I had time to read it. (I’ve gone back to sw development full time. Pays bank.)

Thanks for the resources as always Francisco. I just secured my Google+ vanity URL. It happened immediately for me. I must be one of the lucky ones.

Hi DiTesco,

I have been wondering and pondering on how some bloggers tend to have their names on the Google+ URL, I discovered this when I checked on copyblogger Google+ page.

Can you kindly share how to get the Google+ custom URL?

Thank you
