For those folks who couldn’t attend the webinar or need a refresher here are the quick notes from The World’s Largest Webinar 2014 #WLW14
Theme: Always be experimenting. Test, Learn, Iterate
Key: Twitter: TW /Facebook: FB/ LinkedIn: LK/ HubSpot: HS
TW: Use photos to capture audience. “Bonobos” used as an example. Put your hashtag in your bio
FB: Fill out business facts first on your business page. Next a great photo that represents your businesss. Use FB free tools to build the page. Example: Upload existing customers lists to FB and invite them to the page
LK: For company pages use compelling descriptions that include key terms to your business. Again use a eye-catching photo. LinkedIn likes the company example “Huge”
TW: Use the 80/20 rule when posting. 80% of core business, 20% other conversations like Industry tips, industry trends. Tweets with photo attached or Vine attached more likely to be shared.
LK: Post “snackable” content with professional focus. Tips and tricks with industry focus. Use strong images. Does not need to be your content, just industry focused to professional audience
TW: Your followers are an “opt-in” list. Remember they want to hear from you. Jump into conversations around hashtags that are in your industry or specialty with a goal to get re-tweets (RTs) to expose your brand to a larger audience
FB: Same principals as TW, but FB motto is “Test, Learn, Iterate.” Your Page can target posts to gender, age, locations, language, more. Use authentic voice, do not be a robot. Use hashtags on FB to help people search out content. FB likes “Kays Designer Consignment” as a success story
FB: Ads target people not cookies. Can build personas that FB advertising can match its users
TW: Use email marketing strategy on twitter. Once newsletter is published share the page but break out the contents of newsletter/email campaign into smaller engaging bits. Can do it throughout the day to have tweet content flowing
TW: For direct conversations or to get customers off TW do not use hashtags or pictures as they clutter a more direct marketing message
TW/FB: Don’t be a robot. Talk like you would to friends. www.facebook.com/sts
TW: Like “Chegg” as a company with success. They used images with text included to be clever while relating their business to current trending topics, like #polarvortex. Also added a discount/promotion to tweet when doing trending marketing work
FB: Use images that are beautiful, authentic on business page
LK: Images that are professional in tone but new
TW: 20 posts a day is about right for that platform
FB: 1.5 posts a day is about right for that platfom
FB/LK/TW – Unhook your accounts because different platforms have different content consumption habits. FB friends don’t want to the traffic you do on TW.
FB: www.facebook.com/business www.facebook.com/sts
**Another set of notes not combined with the above**
1. Be sure your business bios are descriptive and complete.
2. Use photos that represent your business well.
3. Make use of search terms in LinkedIn, using key words that your target audience would search for.
4. Tweets with photos are 2x more likely to be shared than tweets without.
5. Share “snackable” content; small portions of larger content.
6. Make 80% of tweets focused on relevant topics other than your products; 20% product-related tweets.
7. Offer incentives for using a specific hashtag.
8. Include strong calls to action.
9. On FaceBook, be personable and human.
10 Don’t send the same content on all networks. Tailor the same information to each network.

Happy Tuesday, Developers!
We hope you are having a great start, or ending, to your Tuesday! We are kicking off a truly terrific one as we are fresh out of a company-wide meeting where our executive team has shared a new vision and focus for Genuitec for the coming years.
Genuitec has spent the past decade in the software development sector, thus, we know know what you developers are up against everyday. Hours and hours of coding, editing, testing, debugging and re-coding projects while you’re holed up in an office, practically chained to your computer to meet deadlines. Not to mention the complete and utter lack of time to make yourself a healthy meal.
Genuitec is proud to announce a new company focus, Developer Nutrition, along with a new product line. Introducing the Byte Bar from Genuitec – a protein packed meal that gives you the boost of energy and nutrition you need to keep coding through the day and night!
The Byte Bar is currently available in 4 scrumptious flavors: Cranberry Almond, Cherry Pomegranate, Dark Chocolate Acai, and Triple Chocolate Chunk.
Every Byte Bar is packed with over 30 essential vitamins and minerals specifically targeted to give you the optimal boost in energy and focus levels when you’re knee deep in code.
In addition, our team of scientists have generated the perfect blend of protein to ensure that you are getting a balanced amount of protein to get you through your hardest moments in coding without those horrible dips of energy that leave you in the free-falling into a pit of despair.
We’re excited to offer our customers a new way to boost their coding experience!
Our week at EclipseCon was filled with activities, from exhibit hours, meet-and-greets, to our Raspberry Pi session down to indoor go-karting, we are filled with excitement and buzz from the conference.
I’m thrilled to report that our Internet of Things session on how to “Pimp Your Pi with Eclipse RCP for Your Home TV” was given to a standing room only crowd. It’s incredible to see our little Pi Plug project garner so much excitement from all you Eclipse tinkerers! You can learn more about our PiPlug which provides an extensible front-end for the Raspberry Pi and allows small Java plug-ins to be written using Eclipse SWT on GitHub : http://genuitec.github.io/piplug
Those of you who couldn’t make the conference, or couldn’t elbow your way in, can check out our session which we’ve posted for you below.
Step-by-step instructions for setting up your Raspberry Pi with the PiPlug are included with the download on GitHub.
We’d love to see and hear about what you are doing with Raspberry Pi and our PiPlug! If you’re working on some crazy awesome apps for your Pi, share a link with us on our FaceBook page or hit us up on Twitter.

Once again, congratulations on your big win, Killrat. We hope you thoroughly enjoy your XboxOne.
As I discovered this week while driving all over Dallas, Texas, those PS4′s are still REALLY hard to come by! Our PlayStation 4 winner, MSHill, is still awaiting the arrival of her console, and I will update this blog as soon as she confirms its arrival.

Great news, mobile developers! The Mobile Tools in MyEclipse 2014 now let you take your mobile apps even further into enterprise development.
On top of the rapid prototyping capabilities already available in MyEclipse, now you can utilize our Mobile Tools to develop cross-platform hybrid apps from the design layer to middleware and the backend, with no external chain tool setup needed outside of MyEclipse 2014. It’s all right there in one enterprise tool.
We’ve made it easier for mobile developers to touch each of the layers in the device-to-cloud spectrum and now, you’ll be be able to incorporate on-device capabilities to connect with company data centers and cloud services using only one IDE stack.
With the Mobile Tools in MyEclipse 2014 you can simply capitalize on core mobile technologies, like Apache Cordova, HTML5 and JQuery, to develop the hybrid and web apps, as well as utilize end-to-end development for testing and optimization of tasks.
Additionally, MyEclipse 2014 Mobile Tools allows for the design of native apps for iOS 7 using a new iOS Build Configuration Editor that lets you customize applications, including app icons. The mobile tools will also connect you with Apache Cordova technology to package your apps in native form so you can submit them to both the Google Play and Apple App stores.
