[Blog] The Struggle is where greatness comes from – Post Accelerator, Rejection and Venture Capital
More on why I left in a future blog post — there is more to what people saw on the CNN documentary that followed us last year. Now I could let these dream killers kill my self-esteem. Or use my arrogance as the steam to power my dreams. I use it as my gas, so they say that I’m gassed. But without it I’d be last, so I ought to laugh. Kanye West, Last Call. Post Accelerator Motivation. Yes, if you did not know, I left in May a little over a year it launched. It was a great experience and hard to believe that I launched a startup accelerator.

[Blog] 2013 Life Manifesto?
Bangs and a Bun published her new life manifesto on her blog this morning and it was a little different to the mass market wishy washiness of January pledges. As is usual for the start of January…there is a lot of talk of detoxing and new year’s resolutions. Hers felt determined, powerful and motivating. It’s got me thinking about my own. usually swear not to join in on the whole New Year’s resolutions party bus…but I might just commit to what Bangs rightly calls a manifesto. It can be so very easy to get trapped in a web of anxiety and worry.

[Blog] How honourable are your social media intentions?
It can initially confuse people why we don’t get stuck straight into the tricks of Twitter, the anatomy of a blog post or how to measure the right social media analytics. People often ask in social marketing workshops how to use social media to grow your business. Great question, but I always start a workshop well away from the mechanics of social media and indeed social marketing. So why do I start with the mindset and intentions of great social media? The cartoon says it all. How great your social marketing is …depends on how true your intentions are…( Tweet this ).

[Blog] The Only Secret You Need to Make Profit
Read most marketing or business blogs and the word value will appear at some point.but what is value? In a sense it is one of those words that we all know what it means to us, however it is difficult to define. It strikes me that for something so core to being successful in both business and our personal lives, we need to learn more about value and give it a meaning that we can strive to achieve? Let Bob explain how I see value. Profit is created through delivering value consistently however it should never be your aim.and that is coming from me, a Chartered Accountant by trade!

[Blog] Rethinking the Future of Business
Yes I have created blog post about how 3D printing will change the customer role , but it is more than that.we are on the verge of a new networked economy. The economies of scale principle has been at the heart of most management strategies. It worked and still works for value lines. But things are changing and with the growth of 3d printers not just at the maker level but also as part of the production line, brands will have to rethink their value proposition. We need to think about the future differently. And why would the mass consumer need to buy a 3D printer? Related articles.

They can grow an audience without a media budget - blogging, twitter , facebook. The informal economy is growing and that is why The Engaging Brand podcast is looking wider than traditional business models , such as crowdfunding and 3D printing - the future will see many of these informal economies replace or enhance the traditional business model. Makeshift point to an estimated informal economy of $10 trillion , employing 80% of people in emerging markets and fastest growing economy in the world! In fact if a country then it would have the 2nd highest GDP in the world.

If you have a blog, then the post title should be considered the H1 tag. The keywords that you use in the heading tags for each of your web page are very important. You should be using H1, H2 and H3 tags on your site. If you aren’t currently doing so then it is suggested that you implement such a format. This will allow you to get more results from the keywords that you use in those tags. Ultimately, that will allow you to be more successful with your search engine optimization methods.

You can steadily build a community a few people at a time, initiate discussions, facilitate early interactions, and then gradually invite people to contribute regular blog posts. I don't like content-driven communities. The model is usually backwards. In theory it works like this. You get 20 to 50 people creating content for your community, this attracts people to the community. The problem is few people want to create content for a non-existent audience. People are motivated by efficacy. The motivations dies.

Basically it’s a ratio of the size of your network and how much of that network listens to you, trusts you and takes action based on what they’ve read. How much Klout you have is one way to measure it. Numbers game. Those are the ones with social capital.

We know the consumer spends their time online. We know they research online.

It’s been six months since I launched my latest blog— FeelGooder —and today it’s entering a new phase, so I thought it might be time for a bit of an update. The blog was a slightly new approach to me for a number of reasons—partly because of the wide niche (it covers everything from health, to relationships, to finance, to social good), but also because I decided to launch without any kind of advertising, and with the intent of monetization without ads.

[Blog] Basic Guideline For Writing Terrific Comments On Social Media
Include links to your own blog or website. Leaving comments on social media has several benefits. It keeps you actively engaged in the online community where sharing and commenting is an important part of adding value to a post. It’s a way to make contacts by sharing with others who are writing about similar subjects or selling similar products. It’s also a great way to promote your own brand or product. Sometimes a well-written and interesting comment can earn more likes and shares than the post they were written on. Comment early. Show your expertise. Agree to disagree.

Dominated by Christmas, the month of December often seems like a chance to relax a little, and churn out some blog posts looking either back at the past year, or making a few predictions for the next. On that note, this blog will be more focused going forwards. I’ve had some very nice offers to contribute to some very good sites, and I’ve struggled to find topics which I didn’t already cover. But the difference between a nice little blog and a publishing business comes down to the business model, which is something I want to prove can work for smaller sites.
