martin shervington601,338Duct Tape Selling!Get ready to have your mind expanded by +John Jantsch!I had the good fortune to have an introduction to him by +Jamie Turner at the Social Media Marketing World conference earlier this year.With a new book out, this seemed like the perfect excuse to catch up and have a fast paced, crammed pack session with John as he lets you know all about his latest book 'Duct Tape Selling', and what you can expect to learn. Here is a taster for you...."A new paradigm gives salespeople the tools to think and act more like successful marketers The art of selling has evolved tremendously over the last few years. Today’s hectic pace demands that sales professionals rethink their strategies and practices. They must attract, teach, convert, serve, and measure while developing an individual brand that stands for trust and expertise.Now the popular author of Duct Tape Marketing teaches sales professionals how to apply the tactics of traditional marketing to their daily work. In Duct Tape Selling, salespeople will learn how to develop a marketing-based system to dramatically increase their effectiveness, stand above their competitors, and add value to their customer relationships.Jantsch flips the traditional business model—where marketers owned the message while sellers owned the relationships—on its head. These days, he argues, marketers must get better at relationships and sales must perfect the message and delivery."Find out more here: http://ducttapeselling.com/Sound good?

Mia Voss26,582#StarWarsNerdsUnite  as we discuss our favorite episodes & the upcoming new episodes.   I'll be nerding out with +Mike Allton, +Jeff Sieh +Carolyn Capern +martin shervington +Greg Trujillo and +Dustin W. Stout   ... who's in?!According to Wikipedia:May 4 is considered a holiday by Star Wars fans to celebrate the franchise's films series, books and culture.[2] The date was chosen as "May the 4th" due to its sounding similar to the series' phrase "May the Force be with you" in which fans commonly say "May the fourth be with you". The reference was first used on May 4, 1979 when Margaret Thatcher's political party placed an advertisement in The London Evening News following her taking office as Prime Minister that stated "May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie. Congratulations.In 2011, the first organized celebration of Star Wars Day took place in Toronto, Ontario, Canada at the Toronto Underground Cinema. Produced by Sean Ward and Alice Quinn, festivities included an Original Trilogy Trivia Game Show; a costume contest with celebrity judges; and the web's best tribute films, mash-ups, parodies, and remixes on the big screen. The second annual edition took place on Friday, May 4, 2012Fans (even government officials[6]) have celebrated Star Wars in a variety of ways in social media and on television.Since 2013, Disney Parks have celebrated the holiday with several Star Wars events and festivities.[7][8][9] The Walt Disney Company had purchased Lucasfilm including the rights to Star Wars in late 2012.[10]Star Wars Day - May the 4th Be With You2014-05-04 23:00:0051G+

martin shervington601,338Who wants to join me as I interview Jay Baer about his New York Times best selling business book?We will be talking about the attitude/culture/approach of 'helping', including how Jay finds the culture on Google+; where he thinks we should be putting our attention right now, and where it is going in the future.Whether you are a business or an individual looking at your own approach, this should be a lot of fun and give you new insights too!What is 'Youtility' all about?Jay says..."The difference between helping and selling is just two letters. But those two letters are critically important to your company’s success.You’re not competing for attention only against other, similar products. You’re competing for attention against everything. To win in this hyper-competitive environment, you must ask “How can we help?”If you sell something, you make a customer today, but if you genuinely help someone, you create a customer for life. This is Youtility."Sound good? See you then!An interview with Jay Baer about his book 'YouTility"!2014-02-25 20:00:0080G+

So at this special event we're going to get into the nitty gritty details on both how to tell if you've been affected & exactly how to go about recovery.If you're not sure whether this applies to your site, I'll bet it either does, or it will & you won't want to miss out on this.#GooglePenguin #GooglePanda #REALSMOhangouts  Google Panda & Penguin Discovery & Recovery - REALSMO2013-11-14 22:30:0075G+

martin shervington601,338This weekend:Don't miss this opportunity to learn more about iMA and how it can help you understand the differences in people, communicate and connect with them on their wavelength.             The principles:Realise that although that every person is as unique as her/his thumbprint, each person has a Comfort Zone (iMA high colour) that is positioned within a systematic, predictable framework.Recognise that your iMA high colour  influences what you want, need, and expect from yourself and others.People will tell you their iMA high colour if you know what to listen and look for.Each of the 4 iMA high colours speaks and understands a different dialect. Every person speaks one dialect naturally, in which they feel the most comfortable giving and receiving information.Respond to people in her/his iMA high dialect and you will reduce tension and increase communication, co-operation and trust.About James Knight:James, the creator of iMA, is brilliantly enthusiastic and dedicated to personal growth and development. He will create energy in the hangout, adding humour to the presentations, and sharing information and tools necessary to make positive changes in your life.Sound interesting?Well, join us for the on-air event and learn more about yourself and others.#iMA  Introduction to the universal language of iMA2013-02-17 20:00:0030G+

You're welcome to watch, and use the comments section underneath the hangout, which will be streamed here on the event, as a chat, for any questions that you may have for Rodney. I generally keep an eye on comments from viewers and try to bring their remarks into our conversation.After 30 minutes, I will invite those who have RSVPed YES  to the event (and whose profiles I have vetted, meaning I know you, or I can tell from your profile that you are an artist or art lover), into the actual Hangout, to join in on the conversation. RSVPing doesn't not mean you are required to come, but if you think you may want to, it is a way if insuring that you will receive an invite. It'll also guarantee that you get a reminder for the hangout, whether you should choose to watch or join.Please be aware that the hangout is an interview with Rodney, and please join only if you are interested in discussing art and Rodney's work. :)I also ask that you have a camera, and a microphone if you would like to join. Headphones, while not required, are preferred, as it limits the risk of renegade background noise.Thanks you to the artists in the community who have sent feedback.

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain as we go day by day, year by year building this community of wish granters.Now think of an image that represents your wish and then take2seconds to think of that image at least once a day until it comes true.Have fun with it, there's no right or wrong way when you come from the heart.Please let us know as each wish comes true...yes each wish...there's no law that says you're only granted one wish...you deserve everyone of them when they come from the heart..when that wish fills you with the passion for life...*****UPDATE at first I was focused on getting as many people as possible for this so that everyone had more energy but now after reading your comments..hearing your passion for life...the numbers have gone completely out the window for each one of you have brought your own unique energy to the equation that's priceless....THANK YOUIn my world Birthday wishes can be made everyday of the year because it's a celebration everyday that your here to share this with.So today I Celebrate being 44 aUpdate to fix Google Bug for "It's My Birthday and my wish is for your wishes to come true!!"2012-08-17 12:00:00205G+

Brian Buckley55,635Sharing My Aug 16 Engagers Showcase CircleHappy Saturday. Here is my latest circle of engaging plussers. I am giving away a special prize with this share. Make sure you read the entire post to see how to qualify for the giveaway! There is a very special person who I follow that doesn't like to be included in a mass circle share. This is because she doesn't think her taste is everyone else's cup of tea. She's  +Pam Adger and she is wicked awesome.  I'm recommending that you add her, but she is not in the circle. You'll have to follow her tag to her profile and add her manually . If her tastes aren't for you, then don't add her.READ ON - GIVEAWAY INFORMATION TO COMEThe Engagers Showcase part means that I would love for you to share a link to one of your own recent posts in the comment stream here. That is a unique feature of this type of circle and it's a lot of fun. It also gives everyone a chance to learn a little bit about why I like to have you in my circles, and if they would like to add you to your circles. You'll need to use a public post or Google plus won't give you a link to it. There are lots of new people in this circle. This is your chance to make some great new connections.It's also your chance to win one of our coveted "Blue Footed Boobies" tee shirts. Everyone in this circle (plus Pam) who shares a link to a post will be added into a new circle. We will give one member of that new circle a tee shirt as pictured in this post: http://goo.gl/2MJGE4If you don't have a public post of your own that you would like to share you can include a link to someone else's awesome post that you like.SHARING COMMENTING PLUSSINGAll the above are welcome and appreciated, but please do any of the above for your own reasons. You are in this circle already because of our interactions or because I admire what you do online and I want to recommend you to others. This is not a snowball circle. You don't get in or out by the same criteria as most circles.Thanks again everyone. Enjoy and thank you for your engagement Good luck with the giveaway :) #circleshare   #engagersshowcasecircle   #engagerscircle  2014-08-16 16:24:3236322168146CC G+

Marlo Angelo Tito99,896Sadie (SpectAcular rounD of Interesting plussErs)The next edition of this circle will undergo the 'usual' reboot of this circle. So the next one would be more likely to have a number of 380 members or something that is close to 400 or 350. And yea, the reboot of the named circle is kind of reversed...Note: If you want to suggest some people or yourself to be added in this circle, just tag them in the comments. :-D(let me copy-paste this one... lol)So folks, this is circle Saide. And yes, you know it, this circle is filled with normal folks here in G+. Well that is, it's your definition of normal! :-D. Since this is not a themed circle or whatsoever, this circle has a pretty great mix as it shows a great diversity among the people.

Why I won’t be taking the Ice Bucket challenge.
Has anyone asked you to throw ice over your head yet or pay a fine of $100?

One very friendly, kind, caring member of the Plus Your Business community member challenged me and, well, I refused. And I really like and respect the person who challenged me.

Before I get started, I know these will be the responses...

“Well, you are no fun.”

"Spoilsport."

“But it is for a good cause. Don’t you believe in giving to charities?”

“You do silly things on Google+ they involve lots of people doing campaigns…”

Sure, I take on-board all of that but something in me would not allow me to do it.

Actually, I was pulling up outside the garage to buy some ice, when I felt a deep feeling that doing this seemingly simple act was going to be a ‘bad’move. All I heard was... more »

A Great Friday roundup!
Thanks +Mick Sharpe 

Intimately Digital

Friday is always a great HOA day but I have to confess I’m often playing catch up on the great shows. I couldn’t help being drawn into last week’s Power Chat from +The Mia Connect (http://goo.gl/oTirmU). Well with an opening line of ...intimacy has been covered with sexuality and stuck in the naughty corner.. how could I not be drawn in? +Marc Gafni and +Lesley Freeman from The Center for Integral Wisdom join +Mia Voss (Tinkerbelle) and +Rayne Dowell to talk about the real meaning of intimacy, embracing life to the full and celebrating your unique self. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one but I was really glad I took the time to watch. [Public Service Announcement] There are a few F-bombs in this show but don’t let that stop you watching this - it is, to steal a line from the show, ice cream in August!. As ever Mia provides the #BatCrapCrazy List #timestamp post here (http://goo.gl/SXDUfl)

Following on from Mia #SistaThelma we had #BrothaLuis +Chef Dennis Littley with Good Day Google+ - The Dog Days of Summer (http://goo.gl/lRPsBJ). Always entertaining this bacon-themed show had me chuckling from the start. +Zara Altair, +Sherrill Duce, +Maggie Unzueta and +Charles Payet talking about bacon and wine, bacon soda (yes it does exist and Sherrill deserves a medal for the live tasting!), gender differences and childhood risk. Anyone over 40, I’m sure, remembers the joys seatbelt-free driving, climbing trees and eating as much sand as sandwich at the beach! Always entertaining, put it on your calendar each Friday.

The +Blogging Warfare team of +Wade Harman, +Carolyn Capern and +Robert Ryan played a blinder by inviting +Ana Hoffman to Blogging Bad: The Chemistry of Blogging (http://goo.gl/J6LGRr). Ana really does know the ins and outs of traffic generation, building relationships and community. Easy to see why this show overran slightly as Ana provides a wealth of information about making your writing appeal to your audience, giving without expectation and keeping your content easily digestible in the two minutes your reader will give you. Great job guys.

Ammonized again

You know how much I enthused about the first live consultation show from +Ammon Johns & Company. Well if you enjoyed that as much as me you’ll also want to see Ammonize - The After-Show Show (http://goo.gl/lhjdX0). By necessity the consultation part is pretty much a spectator event but in this review session there is more audience interaction  and a discussion about the ideas suggested in the consultation show. Taken together this new format is of huge interest to business people and fascinating viewing to boot. Very much looking forward to the next show.

It must be a week for diversification as Episode 39 of the #ISOOSIChat was an Audience Website Review (http://goo.gl/por5bo). I have nothing but admiration for +Christopher Vogelmann for being the willing victim patient offering up his website for review by +Carlos Fernandes, +Erik Stafford and +Ammon Johns. It’s never easy but it’s an essential process to get to an effective website. Lots of good advice that can be applied to a great many websites, not just Christopher’s. Covering aspects of design, user experience, analytics and SEO this will have something for anyone running a website.

#TNTBootcamp takes a look at getting the most from Using NOD3x & Circloscope Together (http://goo.gl/qPVXmS). +Ronnie Bincer, +Lee Smallwood and +Christine DeGraff go through the process of identifying and filtering engagers and creating new circles to start building new relationships. Firstly through a manually process using Google+ and then +NOD3x and then through the new integration between the platforms. The latter really streamlines the process and sets the scene for further promised integrations. The format of live demonstration and recap / clarification by Ronnie works really well. Always worth viewing.

Generosity breeds reciprocation

Why Relationships Are An SEO Factor (http://goo.gl/i7qfeL) is a fascinating discussion between +Wade Harman, +Rand Fishkin and +Mark Traphagen. I’ll bet you didn’t appreciate the similarities of drinking and linking! If you’re blogging for business then the advice to know who is going to amplify your content and why is priceless. Think before you hit publish. Great to see Rand dedicated to try to help others when possible - a fine example to follow. The show rounds off with lots of good advice in the latter section if you’re looking to build relationships with influencers.

I really enjoyed this week’s Fearlessly Questioning Being a Design Snob (http://goo.gl/qF9g7J) with +Dustin W. Stout in +Joey Giangola’s hot seat. Most interesting for me was that Dustin started out with CorelDraw, as did I many, many years ago. Actually I started with GEM Artline many years before that! Dustin reveals his thoughts about website design - yes you need to keep it purposeful as well as visually appealing. Moving on through branding, email lists and Canva you’re sure to get something out of this show. Top marks for +Nicholas Cardot jumping in with his own fearless question about Dustin’s pet peeves. No surprises that the list includes the use of Comic Sans!

+Marilyn Moore shares some great tips in Eleven Easy Ways to Increase Your Engagement on Google+ (http://goo.gl/l7RfAH) that will be useful for seasoned Plussers as well as those just starting out on their voyage across this wide, deep ocean. As Marilyn states so much of what is contained in the post is common courtesy but surprisingly overlooked by many. So take a look, click through to the article for the full tips, and brush up on your engagement techniques. I have to confess I sometimes fall foul of the don’t go AWOL rule and today will be no exception. I always make a point of returning later though! Excellent stuff Marilyn.

Thinkers corner

A two for one here with +Eli Fennell’s share (http://goo.gl/jgwFh3) of +martin shervington’s Why I won’t be taking the Ice Bucket challenge (http://goo.gl/b0FFxO). Very worthwhile reading both (and the comments) as to the perils of social penalties, gamification and monster memes.

And finally…

This animated meme has been shared by a few people but I picked it up first via +Eli Fennell (http://goo.gl/t7votw). As Eli states it’s long but I certainly had a smile while watching. Sometimes I wonder in more than once!


Have a great weekend wherever you are

Using NOD3x and Circloscope together
This is very powerful as a combo.
h/t +Ronnie Bincer, and +NOD3x 

Think you're using G+ to its full potential? Think again!

+NOD3x just announced integration with +Circloscope for an incredibly powerful combination, that couldn't be easier to use. Here's what you can do with this new feature:

1. NOD3x will identify top posts within a targeted topic of interest to you

2. With the new integration, you simply click the Circloscope logo to be taken to Circloscope with those engagers on this top post already identified for you.

3. Taking this information, you can use Circloscope filters to sort those people who have for example reshared the topically relevant post.

★ In this way you can create circles of people who have demonstrated engagement on your chosen topics. Building relevant circles like this on G+ is your best opportunity for increased engagement! ★

The Top Posts in this example are coming from a NOD3x  #ContentMarketing  project. Congratulations +Irfan Ahmad, your posts are topically relevant and popular!

See you all tomorrow!
I love the concept that a sunset or a view is inexhaustible, i.e. no matter how many people appreciate it, sharing the experience, it doesn't reduce its value to any one person.
On that note...see y'all.

"One Day Son This Will All Be Yours I" (Spring 2012)

This amazing sunset at Praia de Malhao, Algarve seemed to last for an eternity even after I had shot three different compositions it glowed on for about 20 minutes and I sat on the beach content, reveling in the colors and beauty.

Are You a Slacktivist?
Great post from +Seth Godin referencing the Ice Bucket Challenge, which if you are a golf fan, you've probably seen working its way through the PGA and LPGA (http://www.pga.com/news/golf-buzz/ice-bucket-challenge-new-cool-or-cold-thing-in-pro-golf). If it's true that people think they are "doing their part" by simply passing the message along, then we are missing the whole point of getting involved. Getting involved means putting your money where your mouse is.

Your thoughts? And while you are reading, be sure to check out the Charity Water campaign that Seth is supporting. Pretty awesome!

2 Hangouts on Air Tips: Stack the Windows & Check the Preview
When you are the Host of a Hangout on Air (HOA) it is wise to get the big picture of what is going on. This screenshot shows what I see just before I choose to start the broadcast.

Many of us use the Scheduled HOA Event method to scheduled and run a HOA broadcast. That is what is pictured here. I take my HOA interface (shown with a blue outline), resize it, and stack that window on top of the event page.

The Event page is where people gather to view the show. That's what you see beneath the HOA interface window.

If I am the host of the HOA, then I'll see a Preview indicator (shown with the yellow oval). If the HOA host presses the play arrow on the video they'll see a preview of the video feed before the show has started.

Both techniques shown here are quite helpful to the Host to verify that all looks as it should before they start the broadcast. This helps the host see the bigger picture.

Quick question for you: What happens when you press the Blue Start Button shown in the bottom left?

Self-publishing hints and tips!
Thanks +Guy Kawasaki 

How to Self-Publish a Book

Those days are gone because of the rise of self-publishing. Now writers can publish their own books and control their own destiny. Anyone with a computer, Internet access, and something to say can publish a book. This doesn’t mean that the process is easy or foolproof, but at least it’s possible and available to many more writers. I’ve written twelve books. Traditional publishers brought ten to market, and I self-published the most recent two.

I learned a lot about self-publishing in this journey—so much so that I co-authored a book called APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur—How to Publish a Book. I’d like to help writers everywhere break the shackles of traditional publishing. As a start, here are my  recommendations for self-publishing a book.

1. Write for the right reasons

There are four good reasons to write a book: (a) you have accumulated knowledge that merits sharing; (b) you want to further an idea that benefits mankind; (c) you want to entertain, amuse, or inspire people; and (d) you want conquer the intellectual challenge for writing a book. There is one all too common bad reason to write a book: because you believe it’s a means to an end where the end is positioning you as a thought leader, making a lot of money on royalty, or fostering your consulting and speaking career.

2. Use the right tools

I’ve written twelve books, and I’m a freak about efficiency, ease, and efficacy. With that said, these are the tools that I use. Microsoft Word (writing), Adobe InDesign (layout), Evernote (collecting anything), Dropbox (backing up). The only controversial recommendation is Word. I realize that it’s a bazooka, and you may only need a fly swatter, but every editor, printer, ebookstore, and designer uses it. Also Word styles are indispensable for non-fiction writing. Word is a beast, and you have to wrestle it to the ground, but once you do, it’s the best tool to write a book in my humble opinion.

3. Build a social-media marketing platform

The single biggest mistake authors make is waiting until their book is done to start working on social media. They think that a few weeks before the book is ready, they can hire an intern to “do social media” to build buzz And the richer and more powerful the author, the more she or he believes this. It takes a year to build a social-media marketing platform. You should start this process the same day that you start writing.

Why I won’t be taking the Ice Bucket challenge.
Has anyone asked you to throw ice over your head yet or pay a fine of $100?

One very friendly, kind, caring member of the Plus Your Business community member challenged me and, well, I refused. And I really like and respect the person who challenged me.

Before I get started, I know these will be the responses...

“Well, you are no fun.”

"Spoilsport."

“But it is for a good cause. Don’t you believe in giving to charities?”

“You do silly things on Google+ they involve lots of people doing campaigns…”

Sure, I take on-board all of that but something in me would not allow me to do it.

Actually, I was pulling up outside the garage to buy some ice, when I felt a deep feeling that doing this seemingly simple act was going to be a ‘bad’move. All I heard was... more »

“But it is for a good cause. Don’t you believe in giving to charities?”

“You do silly things on Google+ they involve lots of people doing campaigns…”

Sure, I take on-board all of that but something in me would not allow me to do it.

Actually, I was pulling up outside the garage to buy some ice, when I felt a deep feeling that doing this seemingly simple act was going to be a ‘bad’ move. All I heard was someone screaming ‘noooooo’. You know, like that scene in ‘The Man with Two Brain’s’ when Steve Martin character (Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr) asks permission from his departed wife to marry again. Not seen it? Shame on you. It is awesome. 1983 at its best.

The Man With Two Brains -- just give me a sign

Needless to say, he ignored ‘the sign’.

And I even was thinking of challenging one of the Geek Beat team (which one was undecided), but alas, no.

The easiest thing for me to have done was to say yes, to pass the parcel to the next person. To allow them to be the one who has to make a choice.

“But Larry Page, Sergey Brin, Bill Gate, Mark Zuckerberg have done it…”

I don’t care who has done it. Increasing the social proof around something that I feel deeply is a bad move to do is not going to make me do it.

I’ve sensed in my life, time and time again, the tension between social expectations and my personal freedom of choice, and as a kid you didn’t want to be seen as a ‘spoil sport’, so you just did it.

And, here is what I think it going on…

The challenge is genius, but faulty:

This challenge is spreading like wild fire. Why? Because we have:

a) a very worthwhile cause (my father died of Motor Neuron Disease, so I’ve seen first hand the suffering such diseases like ALS bring)

b) a simple, replication methodology for getting involved, i.e. entry price of the ticket is simply the ice bucket

c) a mode of communication, i.e. social (inc. video), which enables ease of information transfer

d) influential people getting involved, and through this endorsement others feel they should follow suit

This really is a monster meme. Clever, but nonetheless faulty in my view...

The Outer Game:

The mechanism of a highly socialized campaign, with ‘all the big names’ doing it, is very appealing. But it is build on a few key principles:

The game forces people to buy into the conditions of the game or be shown to be non-compliant to a larger audience. In other words, it is a bind, a social trap. And as I say, a very clever one.

So let’s look at the three main responses available in this situation:

1. They accept the challenge to tip the ice bucket

2. They refuse the challenge but still ‘play the game’ and pay the fine

3. They refuse to play the game, and therefore fail to be a 'team player' or are a spoil sport in a game to which they never chose to party.

The last one may well be met with a response that they will, however, give to charity (as did Obama). This is a concessionary move to exit the relational loop in a way then allows both parties not to have lost.
No real surprise Obama refused to be put in a bind. 

I am sure this could be far more eloquently explored: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_theory

There is also an inner game for each player…

The Inner Game of 'Stick or Twist'

I’m sure you know the card game BlackJack (or a version called Pontoon as we used to say as kids).

Imagine you have 16, that is 5 short of getting 21. Do you twist? Do you take the gamble? Possibly.

What about when you have 19 or 20?

You stick right?

Why? Because you know the odds in that game.

In a much broader and more complex social game you cannot know the odds - relationships are far more complex. So when someone challenges someone to do something in a public space, they are throwing down the gauntlet there are several ways it can go.

Let’s look at the ice bucket challenge specifically:

The person challenges someone in perceived authority or a subordinate (both of which I am sure is happening in corporates around the world right now) and in essence that person takes a gamble.

At this point their dopamine levels will kick in and they get a high. “Will they DO IT?”

Then they wait for the response. And that person either buys into the game, or not.

But either way, you wait to see if you influenced them to take the challenge.

The gamble people take is a very similar internal experience as e.g. “will they email me back?” or if I plus mention them in this Google+ post, will then arrive on my thread, or as in my ‘Why Dave? Why didn’t you click the button?” video, will they +1 my hilarious/insightful/entertaining comment.

Why? Why didn't you click the button Dave?

i.e. it is a gamble against yourself, all the time. You decide on the wave you take, and the ones you leave.

But here is the thing if you reject the games, the approaches, the requests: you are not responsible for someone else’s dopamine. They take a gamble, and you just have to do your best in your response.

It is similar as to when people may ask you to share their content, putting you (on occasions) in an awkward position. If you stand up and say 'no', they may feel bruised by this, but it is they who took the gamble. You cannot be responsible for the response people may have to your actions, e.g. the refusal to accept the bet that someone made against you without your agreement to be party to it. You can still love them, but you don’t have to play their game.

There is a social risk that needs to be insured against though, so people's response could well be to try to make the person who refuses to play 'look bad', to name and shame. Or simply, this is inherent with the rejection of the game itself - you are excluded from that tribe, but is a tribe you never choice to join.

The meme will morph. They usually do.

There is another response which is this: they change the rules of the game, and in fact because the foundations of this game were faulty i.e. ice or money, it has morphed towards ‘ice+$10’ or $100.

Already we seen the meme move from the original ‘Ice bucket or fine’ to ‘Icebucket and $10, to fine’ to Charlie Sheen’s “forget the ice, I just challenge you to donate $10,000’, which is great.

Charlie Sheen -- Ice Bucket Challenge with a BIG Twist

Well done Mr Sheen.

In a wider scheme, I do wonder about the effect of adults, with great awareness, endorsing the ice bucket action.

Money may well be raised for a cause, but I bet you this meme has hit many a school playground and is now used as a form of bullying.

Why do I think this? I’ve run many campaigns and there is always the risk of it ‘going wrong’ i.e. simply not being in your control, and this can include it being taken in a negative or abusive direction.

What is all fun and games on minute can become abusive the next, especially when it doesn’t have a very tight time constraint when the game organizing can call an end.

As such, yes, I decided not to play.

Hold on a minute, I know I’ve heard all this somewhere before. It was 1983…

That scene from War Games

Sometimes the winning move it not to play.

Seth Godin, tribes and asking permission:

For those looking more at a Google+ angle on all this, then this bit is for you...

I have enormous respect for Seth Godin and his influence upon me is daily. Between him Jay Baer, Chris Brogan and Mike Stelzner I am beating my own path in the world, and seeing who want to join the movement.

One time I saw Mike refuse to do something on stage in front of 1800 people at a conference (I think it was a dance upon the request of a speaker). At the time, I 'noted it'. And now I know why. He chose not to be forced into someone elses game.

But let me be 100% transparent once more about what I do...

Myself and the team Google+ to build the communities; along the way I build my personal brand, and to connect with likeminded people with whom I can collaborate.

As you may have noticed, I give you free content, a lot of it. In return I do expect something though. I expect you to ‘tell your friends’, or in G+ speak, +1/comment/share, and this is what naturally happens when you like something. This will signal to Google’s algorithm that this content is ‘WOW’ and should surface in Google Search. This is then found by people interested in those topics, and who visit the websites, and maybe even sign up and buy something from myself and the community members involved.

To help this process I create content that many people would sell, and then give it away for free to people. Very often I will create a circle of people who are interested in previewing the content, which brings them together and gives them a bonus in return for me being allowed to notify them when the big post goes live. I kind of a bribe, yes.

The method I often us is to ask people “Who would like to join a circle for content around e.g. Google+ Marketing” i.e. they opt in.

In other words, I ask your permission would you like to join in. Or, alternatively, you follow me on Google+ by adding me into circles and you choose whether or not to engage on my content.

The ice bucket challenge approach is contrary to the one I tend to take.

I believe the permission marketing approach is so much more healthy than a meme which could easily turn into a mechanism for dominance, creating a social trap for those who are unable to transcend the emotional discomfort and reject the game outright.

And sure, they have raised $15 million+, but it has been raised this approach may not benefit the charity long term. As the L.A.Times says, “The concern of philanthropy experts is that high-profile fundraising campaigns like this end up cannibalizing other donations” and continues “You want to contribute to the fight against ALS, great. But if you're doing it just because you saw or heard about Bill Gates, Jimmy Fallon, Justin Timberlake or Ethel Kennedy dumping ice water on their head, maybe you should give a bit more thought to where you donate your money.”

Conclusion:

The memes we create, join, and perpetuate are the ones which will determine the cultural norms of the future i.e. what is ‘ok’ and what is not ‘ok’, which is why I’ve chose not to put people over a barrel, well, under an icy cold bucket.

I also owe a huge thank you to the person who challenged me, you know who you are; you have enabled me to say express something that would not have otherwise been said. It is much appreciated, truly.

My final words are this: Donate to charity. A charity to which you relate.

I’ve just donated here: http://www.mndassociation.org/

Then invent your own games. Find those who want to play of their own free will.
And let everyone leave when they want, hopefully with a smile on their face.

Search has come a long way in 10 years.
h/t +John Mueller 

It feels like just yesterday my wife, two kids and I packed all our belongings, sold our house in New Jersey, and made the long trip to California. It was almost 14 years ago, and I was on my way to join Google’s Search team. 

One of the more memorable moments during the years that followed was the company’s IPO, where Larry and Sergey introduced their vision to the world. I can’t believe that was 10 years ago tomorrow. Their founders’ letter [http://goo.gl/t7Ylc7] highlighted Google’s long-term focus:  

“Our business environment changes rapidly and needs long term investment. We will not hesitate to place major bets on promising new opportunities.”

Since 2004, Google has of course made a range of big bets: YouTube, Android, Chrome, Google Maps….and recently, many of the amazing long-term projects Google[x] is pursuing.

But the heart of Google is still search. And in the decade since our IPO, Google has made big bets on a range of hugely important areas in search that make today’s Google so much better than the 2004 version (see our homepage from back then below). Larry has described the perfect search engine as understanding exactly what you mean and giving you back exactly what you want. We’ve made a lot of progress on delivering you the right answers, faster. But we know that we have a long way to go -- it’s just the beginning.

I thought it might be fun to share the 10 biggest Google search milestones since 2004 that really stand out in my mind:

1. Autocomplete: We built a way for Google to predict the most likely useful words and phrases as you type, and even load search results instantly—so you can quickly get to that perfect recipe for “silky gingered zucchini soup” (even if you can’t remember the dish’s whole name). Typing out a whole phrase feels archaic.

2. Translations: Google Translate was barely a beta product ten years ago. Today people use it in 80 languages to do over a billion translations a day. Just tell Google to “translate 10 years into German” and see this magic in action.

3. Directions and traffic: Search used to be just about webpages, but our amazing Maps team made it possible to search the real world too. Now you can ask, “How far is it to Santa Cruz?” and with one tap you can open walking, biking, public transit, or driving directions—with the fastest route so you avoid traffic.

4. Universal search: Sometimes the best answer isn’t just text—if you’re asking about JFK’s “Moon Speech,” you probably want to watch John F. Kennedy deliver his famous speech. We’ve made that possible, blending different types of results so you get the most relevant info, no matter the format.

5. Mobile and new screens: No matter what device or platform you may be on, whether it’s a tablet or a smartphone (or even a watch!), you need information and answers. So we’ve adapted Search to all these new devices. This includes redesigning our mobile products to help those who weren’t born with the fastest typing thumbs! 

6. Voice search: Gone are the days of typing queries as clunky keywords—you can now ask questions by voice in the Google Search app. Instead of typing [weather chicago], just say “Ok Google, will I need an umbrella tomorrow?” We’ve invested years of research into speech recognition and natural language understanding, and voice search works in 38 languages today.

7. Actions: With the Google Search app you can quickly text, email or call someone without digging and typing. Just say: “Ok Google, send an email to Jason: do you guys want to go to the beach with us for a picnic this Saturday?” You can even set sophisticated reminders like “Remind me to pick up coffee filters next time I’m at Target,” and Google will buzz your phone when you get to any Target.

8. The Knowledge Graph: The world is made of real things, not just text strings. So we built the Knowledge Graph to show how things are connected—ask “How tall do you have to be to ride the Cyclone?” or “Who’s in the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy?”, and then click to explore across the web. 

9. Info just for you: If you’ve got a flight reservation saved in your Gmail, you can ask the Google Search app, “What gate does my flight leave from?” and get the answer directly. You can also ask about shipments ("Where's my package?") or for appointments (“When do I have yoga?”). All this is private of course, visible just to you. 

10. Answers before you have to ask: If you have the Google Search app on your phone, you'll get automatic help with everyday tasks. Google can automatically show you your plane, bus, and train reservations right when you need them; warnings when traffic is bad to your next appointment; reminders of bills coming due; a best guess at the last spot you parked; and much more.

And all that is just a sample of the work we’ve done since 2004. We made more than 890 improvements to Google Search last year alone, and we’re cranking away at new features and the next generation of big bets all the time. We've come a long way in 10 years -- on Google and so many other general and specialized search apps, it's now so much better than just the 10 blue links of years past. In 2024, the Google of 2014 will seem ancient, and the Google of 2004 prehistoric. ___Search has come a long way in 10 years.

Private Messages are CC: NOT BCC:!
If you share a private message to more than one person on Google+ you should be aware that the list of everyone included in the message can be seen by anyone else included, even if you don't +mention everyone in the message body.

To see the entire list of accounts with which the message was shared, a recipient just has to click on the "Shared Privately" link at the top of the post to see icons of all the post recipients. Hover over each one to see the profile name.

That means you should think of all Google+ private messages as CC: not BCC:!

Mentioning Someone Breaks the Privacy
If you +mention someone in a private message who was not in the original recipient list, they will get a notification and the message becomes visible to them, as with any other Google+ post.

So use +mentioning with caution in a G+ PM, and make sure you have the consent of everyone else in the message before you bring someone else in! (HT to +Rupert Wood who reminded me about this in the comments.)

UPDATE: Great further tip shared by +John R. Ellis: If you want to prevent anyone from +mentioning someone else into your private message, select "Disable reshares" from the dropdown menu at upper right after publishing the post.

How to Create a Private Message
Just in case you didn't know you could send PMs here, here's how:

1. Open a new share box.
2. Delete any circles currently shown in the share box.
3. Either plus mention (type a + and then immediately the name) anyone you want to include OR enter their name in the "Add more people" box.
4. If you use the "add more people" box, remember what I said above: those people can still be seen by other recipients!

Networking Tips.
Thanks +Brian Honigman for getting in touch sir :)

4 Tips for Salvaging an Awful Networking Experience
Sometimes there’s no way to avoid these circumstances. When this is the case, try to find some value to take away.

In my latest article for +Entrepreneur magazine, I decided to write out a few tips for making the most of a bad networking experience.

I had a bad experience networking recently and felt like I should have known a few more strategies for better dealing with the issue.

Here are some tips I came up with to better deal with these types of situations. I also got insight on some tips from both +Dorie Clark  + +martin shervington. Thanks for your input you two. :)

1. Approach every networking opportunity as a buyer.

2. Have an exit plan. 

3. Treat it like a game.  

4. Provide value.

Because Big

More than likely, every single map of the Solar System you have ever seen was not drawn to scale. And again, more than likely, you had guessed that. What at least I hadn't guessed is how much not to scale they were.

Morning all!
Thought I would start the week with a new perspective on the beach.
The waves are starting to pick up now, plans are coming together, Autumn is arriving (yes, I know, but it is in Wales).
Have an excellent week. I'll be here, working on a new presentation for a campaign, I'll be asking if you want 'in' at some point soon ;)

These gorgeous aerial shots of Miami's and New York's beaches were taken while hanging from a helicopter:

Quick Way to Repurpose Your Latest Blog Post
I am working on this too...
Thanks +Rebekah Radice, and +Ana Hoffman too :)

A Quick Way to Repurpose Your Latest Blog Post
Want a quick and easy way to drive additional traffic to your latest blog post?

I just finished reading an article by +Ana Hoffman where she shared a simple hack to increase traffic and shares of your blog posts. It's brilliant and only takes a matter of moments.

The hack? Convert your post to PDF and share in this new format on +SlideShare and various other PDF content sites for added visibility.

In fact, it's so simple, I just converted my post, "A Visual Guide to Social Media Best Practices," created a branded cover in +Canva, added my cover to the PDF and uploaded to Slideshare in just 15 minutes!

Want to see the final result? Take a look: http://www.slideshare.net/RebekahRadice/a-visual-guide-to-social-media-best-practices-38051160

Ready to do it yourself? Read Ana's post here: http://www.trafficgenerationcafe.com/how-to-convert-blog-post-into-pdf/

I'm always looking for new ways to share original content. How are you repurposing your blog posts?

Why should you be on Google+? (less than 4 mins)
This is great +Chef Dennis Littley, and h/t +Kath Dawson 

Why should you be on Google Plus? Just Ask +Chef Dennis Littley!  When I produced his UCF Social Media video, it got me all fired up about using Google Plus. Check it out: http://vimeo.com/103548760___Why should you be on Google+? (less than 4 mins)
