Announcing: The Getting Started in JibberJobber Video Series!

April 10th, 2015

I’m excited to finally get this project to a point where I can announce it – I’ve been thinking about it for way too long, and this week I finally made it a priority!  This should help a lot of people “get started” on JibberJobber.  If you recommend JibberJobber to friends, family, job clubs, etc., point them here!  You get here by clicking on Videos, and then it’s right up at the top.

Since October of last year the Focus Friday calls have been structured so that they were in order for someone new to get off on the right foot.  I’ve taken those videos and removed the Q&A, and reduced the time to considerably less than what is in the Focus Friday series… and put them in the right order.

When you come to the Getting Started page you’ll see them numbered so it’s easy to keep track of where you left off. You can also see which videos you have seen.

Confused about what to do next in JibberJobber?  Start watching the short videos, in order.

Focus Friday: Exporting Contacts from LinkedIn

February 19th, 2015

It took a while for me to get this video posted because I had to have part of the video blurred out for privacy.

You might remember that our Focus Friday sessions, which are 10 minutes of training focused on one particular thing (and then as much time as we need to answer all of your questions) has morphed into a “getting started on JibberJobber” video series.  The next logical video was how to export contacts from LinkedIn.

You can sign up to get weekly invitations (links) to join us on each Focus Friday webinar here.  You can also watch archived Focus Friday recordings here.  Note that if you scroll from the bottom up, you’ll see, in order, the getting started videos! In other words, since I started recording these, I have planned them for newbies, in an order that makes sense to get up and running on JibberJobber.

Here’s last week’s video.  Tomorrow morning on the Focus Friday we’ll go through the import process on JibberJobber.
