Surprisingly These People Make More Money Than You!

Here is a really interesting infographic I recently discovered over at This image details the average pay across the United States for various jobs/professions.

Next to each career and its salary is a different job from another area. A career that you might not realize makes more money than the other “respectable” job.

Very interesting indeed.

As an aside, I’d like to think that most Social Media Specialists make more than $48,000 a year, but that’s another post entirely.

Thanks to borisbenko and andysmith for their work on this.

How to Run a Successful Facebook Contest

I think most of us realize by now the awesome power of Facebook-hosted contests and sweepstakes. If not, take a moment and read this article from Social Media Examiner. When it comes to running a contest or sweepstakes on Facebook, there are many important aspects to consider. You need to be sure to stay on the right side of the law – both Facebook’s and the government’s – when you create your promotion. There are many other little details that can make or break a contest, so it pays to do your homework first.

I recently came across this handy-dandy infographic from the fine folks at ShortStack, and it is a great resource to consult before you dive into creating your next amazing app!

Congratulations, you have stumbled across my very first blog post!

I look forward to sharing my social media tips, tricks, and stories alongside content about my other “work” in nonprofit organizations.

My business life currently includes my social media marketing work as an independent contractor and my internship at the amazing social media marketing agency Fanscape.

The Fanscape Team

My charitable work, what truly makes me happiest, is my new organization: A Walk On Water. This is a foundation that some friends and I started in 2012 with a goal of bettering the lives of special needs children and their families.
