Google Calendars

We get asked how to add, share and access colleagues Calendars, so I thought I would do a 4 Part Howto:

Part 1 - Adding a Calendar In Google Apps

Login to your calendar at[your domain name] 

Select the drop down next to “My calendars”

Select “Create new calendar”

Enter a name in “Calendar Name:”

Add a description in “Description:” (optional)

Check the box next to “Share this calendar with others”

For internal calendars check the box “Share this calendar with everyone in the organisation…”

Select what your colleagues will see

Select “Create Calendar”

For further Information on this see:- Adding A Calendar In Google

Yet To Come:-

12. Give referrals via Twitter. What goes around comes around.
13. Spread your tweets throughout the day, rather than posting the all at once, as people check Twitter at different times of the day.
14. Respond to tweets which relate to your industry.
15. Publish your Twitter ID on all marketing collateral, including business cards, email signature, email newsletters, web sites and brochures, so prospects can learn more about you.

17. Use keywords on your profile and a fun fact to earn trust, add personality and enable you to be found.
18. Dump the default Twitter avatar use a photo of yourself or a suitable image.
19. Follow experts, companies, competitors and leaders in your industry.
20. Be authentic, genuine and real. In other words, be yourself.
