Freelancer Plus E-zine – 130529

Oh Em Effing Gee! What an edition, today.
So much so that I’ve made a pdf of it and uploaded it to Scribd – you can download it from the bottom of this post or view today’s edition on

Today’s lead had to be +Scott Buehler‘s awesome Ultimate Guide to+Google+, inspired by those two pillars of the G+ community, +martin shervington & +Mark Traphagen.

If you’re new to G+ or just learning the ropes, this article covers the essentials and many intricacies the power-users of our wonderful platform are, as yet, unfamiliar with.

And not satisfied with one Ultimate Guide, we bring you a second with +Denis Labelle‘s share of Martin Shervington’s Ultimate Guide to G+  #hangouts .

+Copyblogger gives us sound advice on our #emailmarketing campaigns.

+Stephan Hovnanian 
– talks G+ Twitter Chat
– takes a look at the Google+ #hovercard 
— your mini-business card now available across the entire suite of Google products and services
– how to use Communities & Pages for content curation.

I’ll definitely be checking that last one out, Stephan; top man!

+Search Engine Journal stress why +SlideShare has an increasingly huge part to play in your #internetmarketing campaign.

+Google Plus Daily takes us deeper into the stream and beyond, teaching us how to analyse our #ripples .

+Social Media Examiner analyse the benefits of an offensive marketing campaign against the competition. Or not.

Now here’s interesting – and if the editor mode was working, I’d bang this into the headlines, too: +Freelance Advisor  report on LinkedIn’s trial of the available for contract work button for our LI profiles,

+Brafton‘s article on teen’s making your target market easier to identify by their sharing habits is a must-read for anyone aiming to catch a slice of the adolescent sector.

+Mashable mix it up with their usual Potpourri of social- and technology-related stories.

+Marketo turn the tables on us #copywriters  by telling us that the#customerisking  – what rot!

There’s much, much more in today’s edition.

And a huge special nod to +Justin Matthew for showing the e-zine’s associated micro-blog on Tumblr,, some love through his Monopolize Social Media brand. Awesome, dude.
