Here’s How You Can Get More Customers And More Facebook Likes – DETROIT HOT METRO FINDS

Metro Detroit – I get clients that insist on following me on Facebook. They don’t want my business pages, the want the good stuff. To them that means following my personal page. Now, here’s the thing – I am not a business guy 24 hours a day. That means you will see some jokes on here, bands you won’t like or relate to and authors that you never heard of, (not all of them are business related). It’s as if they are waiting for me to drop the golden truths of advertising or hand out free nuggets of wealth building information. That rarely happens on my personal social media pages.

Meanwhile, these businesses that follow me on social media have NO STORIES, and no culture when it comes to their own companies. You would be surprised to hear this but it is actually astounding. Once in a while you might here about an event, or a random coupon of some sort but there is zero news about them as a company. That is a fatal flaw my friends because this means you are just another huckster out there hawking a product. You are like the apple push cart vendor who is on the street screaming the lowest price. You are boring. You are not going to be very memorable and yet….. you do this month after month. “Why isn’t my phone ringing?” – it is because you are acting and performing like the lowest common denominator. Everyone is doing your act. There is nothing special about what you do. Nobody cares about what you do because you are too bland, too vanilla, you blend in with the curtains.

NEWS CAN TRAVEL FAST – IF YOU ARE OPTIMIZED

Getting an angle, telling stories – that should be your focus. The good news is that news can travel very fast. Lightning fast, if you are optimized and ready for this kind of business. We have tested out many different things in our search engine optimization and the news can go live in as fast as 24 hours. This should be uplifting for all of you. Not many of you guys are doing this.

I have a few theories about why you’re not doing this:

  • You Think You’re Not Interesting Enough?
  • You Believe Pushing News Is Reserved For Only Famous People?
  • You Believe Your Not Big Enough?

There could be a million reasons why you’re not doing this and you need to WAKE UP! Being number one on the search engines is okay but a lot of the companies I see doing it have really nothing to say to the public. Sure there are guys out there who push their phone numbers and their 10% off coupons but they are not engaging people with conversations. And by conversations I mean exchanging valuable bits of information back and forth.

You want proof of this working?  Okay, check this out….

We wrote a piece about the Robyn Hitchcock tour recently at the Ark in Ann Arbor. You’re shaking your head saying, “I never heard of him….”. Join the club, he is not part of the media mainstream but just go here with me for a second. We wrote this concert review about this amazing song writer from Britain and within 24 hours we started to see our stories pop up in the search engine results. This happened for a number of reasons. The main reason why it started to happen was because this bit of news was extremely targeted. It had the right tags in it, the site it lives on was optimized for Google SEO, and it was only a matter of time before this would get indexed properly.

But we didn’t know it was going to jump up THIS fast.

Now, if you have products for sale such as jewelry, retail store items and are shooting to be the lowest price in town this isn’t going to do you a whole lot of good. Or if you just have a service and you want the phone to ring this will not appeal to you.

I’ll be frank with you. That style of business where you just throw a web site up and wait for the phone to ring has been dead since 1994. That sort of thing just doesn’t happen very much anymore. Yet, I see a lot of people who are insistent on running their businesses that way. They carry on like this until their whole business falls apart. I have seen people go out of business by sitting around waiting for the phone to ring.

In todays market you need to be aggressive. You need to punch. You need to hit hard. You need to come out with stories to engage your audience and build a substantial brand. Search engine optimization is great but you need solid brand building to make yourself known. You need readers, you need people to raise their hands asking questions and you need to pump out fresh media on a consistent basis.

That’s why we charge every month for what we do. We create content for companies so you will look interesting out there on the web. We charge for social media posting – not because we are trying to get rich off of you but because we get readers and cause people to raise their hands for more information. That’s what a good web company does and if you’re current web company is not doing that for you… then you need to drop them and get somebody like us…..

Now, enough of all that – let’s look at the results….

Ted Cantu & Hot Metro Reviews Slaughter and the Dogs Live At Reggie’s Rock Club For Rocktoberfest

 

Chicago, IL – The popular UK cult punk band Slaughter and the Dogs are the focus of something called Rocktoberfest. Hot Metro Finds is continuing the dizzying festival fanfare from it’s recent Chicago Riot Fest coverage by reviewing some of the most eclectic bands in the month of October. This recent set of reviews take place in Chicago at a place called Reggie’s Rock Club as well as other venues such as the Double Door in Wicker Park. The articles and set lists will be featured on www.HotMetroFinds.Com and will also feature the recent show by California’s favorite Surf Punk band Agent Orange.

 

Slaughter and Dogs first emerged in 1976 in the Manchester UK punk rock scene. They were prominent on the indie front and even opened up for the Sex Pistols. The music eventually was recorded historically on the, “Live at the Roxy WC2” album and has since become a highly searched record by punk rock enthusiasts, rock journalists, and the curious. The energy generated on those early recordings have been recreated in the bands recent live performances. After taking a considerable amount of time off Slaughter and the Dogs have returned to the festival circuit in 1996.

Rock journalist and pop culture enthusiast, Ted Cantu, has captured some of the manic show performances through a series of articles and reviews. The material will not only feature stage side notes of sets but also insights on city life as it happens. The recent  Slaughter tour is something of an enigma.  They truly show that great rock music doesn’t die but indeed lives on. In the recent summer months a lot of great rock music acts have resurfaced in the Chicago area including Television, Patti Smith, The Buzzcocks, and Paul Weller. Under even closer investigation other acts are following their footsteps. The UK favorite Eddie and the Hot Rods are also playing at the Double Door in future days to come.

What is interesting about this recent wave of live performances is that these old acts are coming back out on the road. Many fans never dreamed that they would ever see them perform live. This is history in the making. When something like that happens it is something of a celebration and that was the reason for chronicling these events. Hot Metro Finds is dedicated to finding out these types of events and then bringing the experience to the people.

About Hot Metro Finds: Hot Metro Finds is a news site dedicated to music reviews, pop culture events, business trends and fashion insight.

Hot Metro Finds Creator Ted Cantu Featured On TV Show, “Self Talk” – in Metro Detroit, MI

DETROIT – Hey – its, “The Big Cantu” and we just taped an episode of, “Self Talk” the independently produced business television show out of West Bloomfield, Michigan. I was interviewed by Danco Sotirovski and Herb Martin. These two are unique personalities and work with entrepreneurs of all types in S.E. Michigan. Now the theme of the show is pretty interesting because it centers on how we talk to ourselves on a daily basis and how that – self talk – influences our outcomes.

Danco is an online marketer and a business entrepreneur based in Troy and Herb Martin is a college professor in psychology. I come along for the ride as an independent advertising entrepreneur and together we tackled 30 minutes on the air. I hoped my story comes across as believable and sincere but here is the thing. We got three personalities on the air from very different background trying to tell the – Ted Cantu story.

Hopefully, what comes across is this. I grew up in Muskegon early on and was inspired by the cities founder, Charles Hackley who was responsible for much of the towns early growth in the 1800’s. He was big into the lumber trade and put the town on the map. He also was responsible for creating some iconic buildings in the city including the Hackley Public Library. From there my family moved me to Bridgeport, CT where I encounted another larger than life figure – P.T. Barnum, (of the Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey Circus fame).

Barnum was an interesting character from the 1800’s and in many ways was the great Godfather of Advertising. Around that same time I discovered Punk Rock  which was hugely influential on how I saw the world. I also grew up near New York so I was around lower Manhattan during the age of Warhol and post pop artists like Keith Harring. Saturday Night Live was a big influence too at the time because the cast was making a big noise in film and the show was challenging convention. MTV was another big influence too that came around the same time and what I walked away with was the thought that, “Anything was possible.”

During the show it was a bit of a balancing act to stay on course. We did 5 tapings that day and my hosts didn’t know my story very thoroughly and I wanted to stay on track. The influences that I mentioned have great brands behind them. I was trying to communicate that many businesses in Metro Detroit and lack any sense of branding strategy and in self talk.

I was trying to make an illustration of my colorful background and how it relates to today. It’s interesting that I took the route of advertising over fine art over the years but after going through my story on TV it was pretty obvious.

So, we’ll see how it goes. Hopefully my message will come through and I will come off in a linear approach in delivery.

I see a lot of disconnect too in my life and in my daily interactions with the Michigan audience. Where I say, “push the boundaries of convention” and “raise the roof” a lot of the businesses that I come into contact with are fine with their little pitiful 10% off coupons. I see a lot of these kinds of businesses go under.

This is a huge topic and I will be commenting on it more in detail.

The show will come out sometime next week and I will be posting links to it on here.

HOT METRO FINDS: Queen + Adam Lambert Fans Trump Traditional Media Coverage W/ Social Media

 

http://www.hotmetrofinds.com
http://hotmetrofinds.com/metrodetroit/?p=516
The recent Queen tour with Adam Lambert has reached epic proportions on the web. It has literally continued with a life all its own. The fans are nothing short of fanatical and the audience is not only supportive but interactive. They have reported on the smallest details of the day to day activities of their hero Adam Lambert. The music of Queen has been given new life and meaning and rock and roll has a new face. That energy — that action — has permeated throughout the social media landscape and it is nothing short of amazing.
This sort of activity has brought as much as 155 people a minute to my websites. This isn’t paid web traffic but real people in real time talking about their musical adoration. The fans have journalistic integrity and will engage other fans to share a growing collection of live concert photos that the mainstream media have missed. They also have included video footage of concerts and have even recreated entire concerts on Youtube. These video clips have been strung together.
Meanwhile the mainstream media has been somewhat absent. The reports in Michigan were really offbeat and flat out weird. There was very little mentioned about the Queen show with Adam Lambert at the Palace of Auburn Hills but it was hardly anything noteworthy. Who ever wrote about seemed to miss the concerts popular significance on the pop culture landscape. After reading a couple of the local press reviews I am convinced that who ever wrote them didn’t even attend the concert — which makes their observations a complete fabrication. They piss on their public. Fair enough.
In contrast, the fans have over stepped their bounds and have filled in the journalist shoes and have delivered extensive concert information from the tours various cities including New York, Chicago and Atlantic City. There have been reports on Adam Lamberts fashions, his choice of eyewear, his shopping habits, and even fan art. There has been a rebirth of rock music in the popular mainstream and major media seems to have missed that. Maybe they don’t care. After all their bread and butter comes from doing reports on local government embezzlement, closed highways and school closings…. real pedestrian fare. That would never translate into a ravenous fan base under any circumstances.
There was that lackluster review from some reporter in Las Vegas. That guy may have attended the show but he was hardly a fan. His references about the shows content was so off base that I wonder if he really even knew what the songs were about. The early references to Queen’s first three albums were spotty and misguided but carried some sense of truth. There was a fantasy element about Queen’s early work but it never defined their entire career.  There seemed to be a bit of anger behind his words. In contrast to the fans and the band, the relationship that matters most, the mainstream media was totally left out.
This set list has brought the classic rock era in tune with a pop icon of this generation to make something sensational. It’s off the charts and it is a living, breathing, dynamo that has taken off to Australia, Asia and now the tour will go back to the UK.
Queen guitarist Brian May is somewhat taken aback and was reported to have said, “I’m not going to stop until my fingers fall off !!” I take great comfort in that because watching these guys play on stage is truly magical. When you see a rock band like this come together and see it touch generations young and old is truly amazing.
The fans are oblivious to the rank reviews and half hearted attempts to stay interested. They have taken the role of reporter, video VJ,  photographer and have stepped over mainstream media and are communicating to one another — fan to fan — and don’t give a damn about what what it thinks.
That is exciting. For us. For them. For everyone.
Queen + Adam Lambert doing NOW IM HERE in Perth, Australia
