One day we'll come up with something that we can collaborate on. Would be cool!

I bought the early model GoPro because the bastards told me it was the one displaying the video on the t.v at best buy the other year... They lied.

ALSO, the camcorder I bought was the only one left, and it was the demo model. I received 10% off...

ANYWAY, I go home, after fiddling around with it, I find all this random footage from some Asian family at their home, meaning this camera was previously owned.

Best Buy, is a bad guy.

The Camcorder is still friggen awesome though!

Back to the GoPro, the thing I hate about it is not being able to see what you're filming lol... It's always a gamble. It's also one of those cameras you need to look at the manual for every time you use, because there is only two buttons to control everything!

I actually found out if you get the LCD backpack you can see what you are doing. The Hero 3 just came out though and it is AWESOME

O sorry they are now charging new people a one time fee of $7 to cover costs. I think it is well worth it. If you google willslawns.com 1/3 of what you get I made using the monkee
But if free is what you want post photos on photobucket, flickr.... and tagging and naming the photos and videos

Does sound like it's well worth it. I think I'm going to give it a shot! And thanks for the link too!

Some new business owners are tech savvy and they can jump into web site creation and all the social media sites to really build a lot of backlinks to their sites.

Others seem to not be as interested in that and focus on social interactions within their service area.

It would be great if you could do both, but if you can't, why not focus on one and continue to work on it to get the word out about your business? Don't get overwhelmed by it, just take small steps as consistently as possible to create a bigger presence.

I wasn't trying to say that social media is completely useless to everyone. To me it is though because I get excellent results from my web site with much less effort. It just seems that there is no real point to spend time on something that gives little or no results that takes constant work when you can spend much less time building what does give results.

My post above should say "high ranking google results". Stupid autocorrect.
