OPS Blogs = NO readers = NO comments = NO Problem…1st Qtr

I’ll be exploring interested social media “network” contacts via the web and face-to-face 2nd Qtr.

So I’ve joined Wheatmark Publisher’s Author Academy. I attended Grael Norton’s “No Blog is an Island” webinar. Grael took a non-linear visual approach. Attendees meet via the web next week.

Our topic: Google Keywords.

Because next up is my OPS web site Keywords/Technorati Tags/Trackbacks/SEO “wrap-up” with Dave Barnhart.  (www.businessbloggingpros.com) Why should you care?

Well defined Google keywords and “voice” attract well defined social media communities. Check-out my Technorati Tags below. They may not be well defined but they are a start.

2nd Quarter will be focused on implementing multiple On Problem Solving Projects while building professional and social media relationships. It is time to leverage my Linkedin and Facebook People You May Know – “PYMK.”

And it is now time to be heard…OPS can no longer remain a silent social media voice.

Finally, some timely SmartDraw helpful tax visuals:

Mobile Access

 

A paradigm shift in thinking – it took awhile to see the phone

 

 

Mobile Format

 

 

Think small – smart – social for those who can afford a phone.

 

 

Social Media

 

 

The potential of Team thinkers and their technical savvy.

* Web-site based storytelling is NOT your current business web site
* Giving “voice” to your business offers added insight and passion
* Look to your Linkedin/Facebook “network” contacts for their stories

Mobile Story

* Web-based storytelling offers access to social media devices 
* Kindle Fire e-book reader/tablet insures full Internet access
* e-book reader tablets/SmartPhones future – why should you care
* Click on cover image – imagine your mobile “story” presented

 

 

Mobile Access

 

* Four Questions to Ask Before Going Mobile webinar Feb 29th
* Convio non-profit vendor host offers experienced insights
* 800+ webinar attendees will receive slides/audio/pdf
* Share business-based social media impact – www.convio.com

 

Don’t worry about being a late adopter. Remember: You can always tell the pioneers, they’re the ones with the arrows in their back. By the way – the above format would NOT work well on a SmartPhone…uh-oh.

  “…obsessive focus on YOU violates my inherent privacy preference…” 
But it does tweak my professional curiosity to explore your social media Story.
Facebook Help Center web site provides extensive support. An article about securing “…your Facebook Profile in a post-Timeline world” was also suggested by a friend.
Why should you care?
Facebook demands a KEY pre-requisite: A personal Profile is essential for any company-product-organization Page. The difference: Who are YOU (Profile) versus Who is your COMPANY (Page).
I am intrigued – as a non-linear – with the text and visuals story power of your company Page. 
  “Some record barely there facts while others provide extensive insights.”  
Some Linkedin professional minimal facts may suggest a more compelling personal Facebook story.
My Linkedin’s Summary (Results quote particularly) – Experience (Business Visual Storyteller) and Education (Lifelong Learning) reflect who I am. Everything else reflects who I was. 
Why should you care?
Linkedin ensures a KEY pre-requisite: YOUR presence is essential credibilty for those who may prefer linear text. Your Facebook presence is essential interest  for those who may prefer non-linear visuals.
Living routinely now in a Facebook/Linkedin world – social media options are key as is your web site. Will my “network” contacts reflect non-linear (Facebook) or linear (Linkedin) preferences? Will you? 
Web-site based storytelling allows you to explore and share your social media story…economically.

Fade-out…OPS will no longer be a social media silent “voice”

My OPS web site is designed with text and and visuals specifically in-mind. It has text for linear thinkers like Dave Barnhart (www.businessbloggingpros.com) and visuals for non-linear thinkers like me.

Why should you care? Because linear thinkers are generally the majority in any given group. The minority of non-linear thinkers often represent new ideas that are challenged by the majority.

Non-linear thinker: Ideas – options – “What do you THINK?!?”

Linear thinker: Outlines – results – “How will it WORK?!?”

This OPS social media web site is developing along these following guidelines:

  1. “Demo” Web Site – a loaner site if you’d like to test some social media ideas
  2. Team Thinkers – an opportunity to see how your Team reacts to your ideas
  3. Text and Visuals – a challenge to linear and non-linear thinkers communications issues

Look more closely at the bullet points in Blog #8. What if you could take YOUR “Business Show” on the road? How would your “Demo” web site impact linear and non-linear thinker clients and prospects? Your Team’s initial web site reactions will provide you some genuine “heads-up” insights first.

So…where to begin – remember to also review the Case Study page Project Chart:

Case Study Start

2014 1st Quarter update: CPA Site Solutions/Valley CPA client web site Project completed June 2012 – December 2013.

2011/2012 On Problem Solving (OPS) Blogs #1 – #9 and #17 concepts were leveraged via Vermont Vendor CPA Site Solutions.
