Google have updated the procedure for how to add a new user to Google Analytics yet again. This is the December 2013 version.
How to add a new user to Google Analytics
Log into Google Analytics.
Click the Admin button at the top right of your dashboard
Select your domain
You may have more than one domain on this account.
Select the domain that you want to add the new user to from the drop down menu on the left of the dashboard.
Then click on User Management. It’s the second option down.
This will bring up a dashboard on the right hand side.
At the top is a list of the existing users for Google Analytics on that website.
Add a new user to Google Analytics for your website
Go to the section underneath the list marked Add Permissions.
It has a text box below it.
Enter the email address of the new user that you want to add.
Check the box that says you want them to be notified by email that you have added them.
Choose the level of involvement you want them to have. Read and Analyse is the basic level. But there is the option for more hands on management.
The new address join the list that contains your email address on the dashboard above the Add Permissions section.
Delete A New User/Admin From Google Analytics
You also have the option to delete any user.
Look to the right of any one of these email addresses. You will see the word delete.
share from pinterest to facebook
I’m sure that when I used to post pins to Pinterest, they would automatically appear on my Facebook page… but now they don’t.
This could have something to do with the fact that I converted my Pinterest profile into a business account.
Investigating further, I saw a new button on pins. It allows me to share… but only to my Facebook personal profile or Twitter account… or to embed on my website if I have a widget to do so.
Yes, you can have a Pinterest tab through Shortstack but, unless you have a professional account, you would have to pay for it.
If you are a small business with less than 2000 fans, Shortstack will allow you to use their functionality to create a free tab under your cover image. But do you really want a Pinterest tab taking up one of the three most valuable pieces of real estate on your Facebook page? It’s fine to have it in the also rans that people have to click to see more of.
As this blog post points out, you could post links to your Pinterest pins on your Facebook business page. But that’s rather a manual process.

Another question asked at one of my recent workshops was about how to block a Facebook personal profile from a business page.
If that person is writing something unpleasant on your business timeline, then you can hide their comment. You do this by hovering your cursor over the top right of the post. An x will appear with the instruction ‘Hide’. Click that.
Once clicked, it will hide the comment from your timeline. It then offers you the choice to unhide the comment, delete it, report it and also to ban the commenter from posting on your business page.
If that person is leaving you spam or being unpleasant using your business Message button, you can report and block them. There is a second box which asks you if you are sure.
However, in both cases, some of the more determined individuals will respond by getting their family and friends to harrass you. Or breaking Facebooks prime directive by opening a second personal profile. So blocking one person may not always be sufficient.
Remove or ban someone from your Facebook business page
If you just want to stop someone from being able to see your page, I was told that this might help. I have not tested it so I look forward to hearing if it works for you.
It only works if the person concerned has liked your page. Go into ‘see likes’, find the person and there is a ‘x’ to the right. If you hover over it, it says Remove. Click on it and another box will pop up.
It asks if you want to remove them from the Page. It also gives you the option to ban them permanently.
None of these stops that person from actually being able to

How can I see the best times and days to post to my Facebook fans? When are my fans online?
It was another question asked at one of my workshops. And one to which the answer was not immediately obvious.
I had to tell the lady in question that I would get back to her when I found it. So, here’s my post to remind me for the future.
First find Facebook Insights
You need to go into the dashboard of your Facebook business page. In the centre, just above the big cover image is where you used to find Facebook Insights. This is the Facebook analytics.
But they have moved! And been replaced by another feature called Pages to watch. More on that in the future.
At the very bottom of that little panel, you will see a hyperlink which says ‘Facebook Insights have moved’. Click on that link!
Next, find where the daily stats on Facebook are kept
Once you have clicked, you will be taken to a new page that tells you about Facebook’s new insights. There are lots of interesting graphs.
Scroll down past those to the very bottom. Underneath the statistics about reach and engagement levels for your 5 Most Recent Posts.
There you will see a link which says See All Posts.
Click that link!
Understand the graph that shows how you can see the best times and days to post to your Facebook Fans
You will now see a graph at the top of the next page. It shows an undulating block of blue. This is the average time that your fans are on your Facebook page over the last week by time of day.
Above the graph are the days of that week with the number of fans that visited your page on that day. Hover your cursor over any one day and a dark blue line will appear

So, when am I going to see the results of the work you’re doing and the money I’m paying out? When is the phone going to start ringing?
That’s a question most clients want to know pretty soon after you start the job.
As I explained in my previous post on SEO Cycles and getting on the front page of Google, there are a lot of factors involved.
With my first client, The Ark: Massage in Southend, it took about two months to get to the top of over two million entries on Yahoo and about four to get to the top three on the front page of Google – for a variety of keywords. We were working in a niche where there was some competition that had been around for a while, but it was not that well optimised – at the time.
However, it took about six months for the phone to really start ringing. That’s because, although you may be at the top of Google, people don’t always buy straightaway.
There are cycles involved and familiarity issues.
There is a very old Marketing Methodology:
C Conviction – Do we really want it? Can we afford it? Is it the right time? Is there a better one?
A client is ready to buy if they can get through conviction stage and that may well be because they’ve looked at the Google listing several times over a period of a few weeks or months and your listing has always been there.
Their sub-conscious starts to recognise and trust your company name.

If you are a franchisee, then LinkedIn Company Pages will come as something of a disappointment.
LinkedIn is set up so that the mothership gets the Company Page.
As a franchisee, you can ask to be mentioned in the description of that page as one of the locations. But only five other addresses are permitted.
If you are one of many franchise outlets, it’s going to be hard.
The only way is to have your own separate website that shows off what you do at a local level.
And an email address that comes from that website.
If you try to create a LinkedIn Company page using an email address that comes from the main franchisor – Info@NameOfFranchiseWebsite.Co.UK – you will be told that there is already a Company page for the domain in that email address.
The only other option is to link to the main franchise page. And that doesn’t give you anywhere to grow a following for your business.
Some interesting ideas from the US on using LinkedIn if you are a franchise.
I expect that everyone who has a website has encountered this problem. It’s not loading and your browser is implying that it’s not working.
You clear the cache. Sometimes you even try another browser.
But computers are curious creatures and sometimes everyone else is able to see your website just fine.
How can you check without having lots of technical knowledge?
Type in the URL of your website and you’ll be told whether it’s down for everyone or just for you.

The Liverpool Victoria have released some great stats about micro business owners.
There are 1.7 million ‘one-man-bands’ operating in the UK
One in twenty (5%) of these are turning over more than £150,000 each year
Over a tenth (11%) of these has no insurance cover in place, equivalent to 180,000 businesses across the UK
Whilst running one of my social media workshops, one of the attendees asked me about my business insurance. He was a broker but that did not make the question any less valid.
I have business insurance. But I had actually taken the time to talk to my domestic insurance providers. I was able to pay an extra premium that covered me for any liabilities arising from having people come to the courses at my home.
However, with over 1.7 million microbusinesses operating out of sheds, garages and spare rooms, as many as 180,000 do not have adequate insurance cover in place. The majority will believe that they are covered through their home insurance. And they would be very wrong.
Most policies will not cover any cash, equipment or stock stored within a home for business purposes. And the standard public liability or accidental damage cover will not cover commercial ventures.
Beauticians and massage therapists were highlighted in the article – many of these will operate from a treatment room within their own home. But trailing wires from electrical equipment like heaters can mean the risk of an accident. And, without dedicated public liability insurance, the business owner can find themselves on the receiving end of a claim for damages for any mishap that befalls a client on their property. But Liverpool Victoria’s study showed that only 19% of one (wo)man operations had cover in place.
One of the things that did come to light from my own investigations about insurance for a home-based business was the theft problem. I am no longer covered for any items that go missing from my home – unless there is visible sign of a break in. Because I
