Every week, the Social Pros Podcast serves up insights from real professionals doing real work in social media. Host Jay Baer and his guests dig deep into the inside stories and behind-the-scenes social media secrets at companies like Ford, ESPN, and many more. As Social Pros approaches its second birthday, we revisited some of Social Pros’ best conversations to bring you this list of the 12 most popular episodes since 2015—the best of the best.
Here’s how a common conversation with friends, new business contacts, and colleagues goes:Them: “Jess, I’m panicking. I know I need help.”Me: “Well, my friend, that’s where you’re wrong.”Instead of keeping these conversations personal, I decided to share with you the down and dirty, the nitty gritty, the harrowing details of what a virtual assistant typically costs and how their rates are determined. Everyone has a different perception of what “expensive” means.
The first month of 2015 comes to a close with another great round of guests on the Social Pros Podcast. In January, we heard from JetBlue’s social media customer support leader; the social media manager of outdoor-gear retail chain Cabela’s; and the LinkedInExpert herself.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
