ISOOSI Research Engine3,417Roles and Stories in Effective Marketing with Dr. Mani Saint-Victor ( +Mani Scienide ) and +Chris Lang In our last show we discussed how words shape brands, both to those within, and without the company.  Building from that understanding of words, tone, voice, this week we go to the Customer's story and how we find and play our role in that story.Its fine to define ourselves to ourselves, in a fixed context of simply describing who we are, what our mission is, and similar things... But how does that matter to the potential customer who is wrapped up in their own problems right now?  How do we present ourselves in relation to a specific issue and mindset without losing any of that true definition of ourselves.In this episode we'll revise the importance of 'story', but from the perspective of the customer's story rather than our own.  We'll discuss how we fit ourselves into a vital and needed role in that story, and how to play that role effectively, powerfully, believable, and above all, truthfully.LinksG+ Hangout Event: http://isoo.si/Ab23DWatch on YouTube: http://isoo.si/t3B2SMain Comment stream: http://isoo.si/Ab23DRelated recommended reading: http://isoo.si/q5FWnJoin our wonderful guests +Mani Scienide and +Chris Lang, the   #isoosichat   regulars +Ammon Johns, +Bill Slawski and +ISOOSI Research EngineRoles and Stories in Effective Marketing2014-07-01 21:00:0076G+
SEOWiSE724The Paradigm ShiftThe Business of Communicating in a Semantic WebNew: We're trying to track activity so if you share this event anywhere else please add #paradigmshift !I am thrilled to announce my newest show with +David Amerland. Through our interactions on his brilliant +David Amerland's Sunday Read, David and I have developed clear connections between communication concepts I regularly use in Communication Studies and the new Semantic Web that businesses are learning to function in.The show break downIn a half hour David and I will...I will briefly explain a communication concept. For our first show we are starting really basic. I will explain the two-step flow of communication: Its history, the basic model and components within that model, and how we generally study it within communication.David will then take the concept of the two-step flow of communication and apply it to his expertise: Business today. David will explain how the two-step flow of communication functions within the semantic web and why its important for businesses to consider.Finally, we will address any questions that you all raise for us, so bring your thinking caps!A big thank you to +todd l lebeauc for the banner!The Paradigm Shift - The Business of Communicating in a Semantic Web2014-06-19 18:00:0089G+

Meloney Hall2,506Teacher Says, “ Okay, class --  you better take notes for this lesson.”Fifteen students take notes vigorously as they try to keep up with writing cursive on their lined notebook paper.Eight Students do not take any notes at all.  They might ask for someone’s notes later.One Student draws doodles as a form of note-taking.  She gets laughed at and told to “grow-up” and take notes the right way.  I’m kind of embarrassed I listened to those peers; I need to gain those skills again!  So much easier to retain the information when you can draw pictures with your written notes (printed, not cursive). How about the Digital Way of taking notes today?  That’s what +Sacha Chua  will be showing us during the HOA broadcast with me.  I will be interviewing Sacha Chua on Wednesday, March 12th at 6:00pm ET / 3:00pm PT about how she uses SketchNotes for taking notes in a digital format.  Free-flow handwriting and techy all at the same time!  She’s a woman in science and technology, so she really loves gadgets!  She uses SketchNotes, and it’s really very fascinating!  Watching her do them LIVE is really the best!  I know Sacha as a fellow HelpOuts Provider, and I have seen her do this for many HOA’s.  This is why I wanted to interview her --  you’ll say WOW like I did when I first learned about her and what she does.   This is a link to give you the basic idea of what the system is and why it is so handy for students, business people, and anyone else who needs to retain information.  And if you’re into saving paper, then this is a true match for you!  I like to think of SketchNotes as a digital white board.  http://www.core77.com/blog/sketchnotes/sketchnotes_101_the_basics_of_visual_note-taking_19678.aspSelect YES or MAYBE to get a reminder on your calendar.  It will also help mark the spot if you can’t watch live, but will want to watch the replay.  You’re in for a techy-treat!  Hope you’ll be watching! Visual Note-Taking with Sacha Chua2014-03-12 23:00:0035G+

Jess + Scott + You262We are just people, and just mere mortals at that. So, how can “we” [in this case meaning you and I] change the world? Peek at Google. Ya, you heard right. Google! They research and develop (R&D) innovations online and off, in the medical field, in commerce, in transportation, robotics, learning, life’s longevity and more. Much more. They [in this case meaning Googlers or employees] feel the risk is worth the reward and the falling down means learning up. For them, learning is what helps fuel opportunity which in turn leads to growth and sustainability.So how different are We-from-They or Us-from-Them? On this Jess and Scott agree: It’s not the scale that counts so much as how you feel about it and then act on how you feel. Here’s the kicker. In descending order: technology, the internet, social media and Google/G+ can now easily and effortless transfer into our hands the ability to explore our curiosity along with all the innovation and opportunity inherent in the technology. Now, how cool is that?So, do you see that going forward it’s YOU? We decide next steps and decide Is the risk worth the reward, and are we willing to fall and learn to grow?This week’s JSY! show serves up case studies drawn from a courageous group demanding change to make our point: Even though our R&D budgets are a smidge smaller than say, Google’s, it’s the culture we set in motion for ourselves and our family, work and country that can make an impact. Might even save the world. In the end, it is the you and I that chooses to jump (or not), expand (or not) and grow (or not). For small businesses and entrepreneurs this means providing new and different value for our customers.Join +Jessica Dewell +Scott Scowcroft  and +Terry Leigh Britton    as we explore innovation to create opportunity which can lead to real change. Mere mortals? We think not.YOU (the Y in JSY) take action that matters. Come explore this topic with us live or when you can (Yes, we are an evening show - so responding Yes or Maybe will set a reminder so you can catch the replay.)Hashtag: #JSY  Like the topic?

Jim Shankle1,295It's always a pleasure hearing +David Amerland discuss "The GSS/G+ Connection" because it's a subject area with many facets.For mobile viewers click on this YouTube Link - MBA Marketing Strategies - David Amerland The time for the Event is translated to your local time zone. As a reference, it starts at 7:30 PM ET.Google Semantic Search and its direct connection to, and support by, Google+ (what I am starting to call "The GSS/G+ Connection") is remarkably deep and important. Yet David explains it with such simplicity, ease, and freshness that it's very understandable and enjoyable no matter your level of experience. Unquestionably, there is a wealth of material in this subject matter which means David will never be over-exposed or fail to peel back yet another layer of this very large onion every time he appears in an HOA.Thursday night he is joining my MBA Marketing Strategies class at John Brown University (Rogers Center in Northwest Arkansas) via Google Hangouts On Air. David will explain The GSS/G+ Connection from an MBA's and marketer's perspective. He will also introduce some unique "life applications" that should be pursued as an extension of the emerging power of GSS and Google+. Our session will start at 6:30 PM CST for those interested in seeing Marketing Strategies examined from David's unique perspective.Two facts backing my conclusion that David has struck a deep vein...1) He had 22,000 Followers when I started communicating with him 5-6 weeks ago. Today his Followers number over 150,000, and2) His game-changing book Google Semantic Search - 230 pages (including an extensive Bibliography for those who want to explore the subject even further) that mines (as David calls it) a "semantically dense" subject.Proof that GSS/G+ is a critically important subject for MBA students (everyone really) was on display last week. Friday for an enjoyable and fast-paced hour, David, +Mark Traphagen  +Ronnie Bincer   (aka "The Hangout Helper") and +martin shervington  discussed how Google+ is changing behavior on the internet - to the better - https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/c0n7nndld5gebbjat1of0dhb124 Even after a full hour, there were many unaddressed questions - reflecting that the session could have continued for the rest of the day. Based on the enjoyable chemistry of these four professionals, most their large audience probably would not have left them had it continued.Come join us Thursday night to continue the discussion.#mktgmba  MBA Marketing Strategies - David Amerland Explores "The GSS/G+ Connection" at John Brown University2013-11-08 01:30:0063G+

And I would be wrong.If you're like me, you're probably going through the same parent's dilemma as I am - how do I keep my child healthy while allowing him to enjoy all the goods out there?This is such a big thing for me that my step son has named me a healthologist (there's more to it, join the Hangout to get the whole story - it's worth it).Quality - Quantity - TimingMy daily struggle with what to put in my child's mouth so that he has a healthy diet is shared with many parents, I'm sure.What to put in his lunch box other than peanut butter and jelly?What's for dinner? (my daily nightmare)Did he have enough protein today? Did he eat fruits? He had a cup of juice, does that count as one serving? What about dessert - can he have some? Should it be home made? Sugar or not..? And why do I keep craving sweets after a meal?Myth and RealityDr.+Marta Katalenas is the author of The Step Up Diet: From Scratch...The Quality, Quantity and Timing Solution to Childhood Obesity. In the book, Dr. Katalenas breaks down myths that we use as a basis to our purchasing decisions, like -Sugar-free or calorie-free drinks are a good option to reduce or maintain weight in children.A serving of fruit juice is equivalent to a serving of fruit.Some canned pasta dishes contain a whole serving of vegetables and are a good alternative for the busy family.As a children’s drink, chocolate milk is equivalent to regular milk.And the one I'm most guilty of - Toddlers should take a vitamin supplement every day.IF YOU'RE A PARENT CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR FAMILY'S MEALS, YOU SHOULD JOIN OUR HANGOUTBring your questions to Dr. Katalenas and get a step by step advice on how to get started on healthy meals that you can fit in your busy schedule.Grab Dr. Katalenas book here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0095M3RUY/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B0095M3RUY&linkCode=as2&tag=myubifone-20About Dr. Katalenas:After growing up in Spain, Dr. Katalenas moved to the United States in 1984 to learn English and to become a pediatrician. A Board Certified Pediatrician, Dr. Katalenas graduated from the University of Oviedo Medical School, located in Northern Spain, in 1982.

Christine DeGraff5,001MY MAIN G+ STREAMIt took me awhile to put this together and thank you to all that gave advice. I have had this circle as my main stream on G+ for a few weeks, adding and subtracting on occasion until I was happy with it. These are all very active users (checked circlecount.com) and I interact with most of them on a regular basis. There are a few that I have not yet gotten to know yet, but hope to soon.If you are in this circle, it is because I appreciate you and I want to keep up with you on GPlus. Many in this circle have helped me grow. Many make me laugh. Many are my friends. Many share beautiful photos. Many share awesome music. Many share things about GPlus, social media, tech stuff and eclectic or unusual stuff. All of it is interesting to me.If you are not in this circle, let's get to know each other better so you can be in the next one. I do look through my other circle streams and move people when they stand out. Talk to me. I would love to meet you here on GPlus.Please +1 this post.Please share this post. Please comment.But most of all, please add these people to your circles. They are an awesome group and have made me completely give up all other social networks in favor of GPlus!!! #CircleQueen   #circles   #circlesharing   #circleshare   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   #circle   #circleoftheday   #sharedcircle   #snowball   #snowballcircle   #topcircles    #followback   #viral  2013-07-11 11:14:42328304169214CC G+

Max Huijgen46,779The 100 most relevant people on G+ you really should check out. It´s impossible to select the people which contributes most to my experience on G+ so I´ll let Google do the dirty work.These 98 people (and 2 pages I helped founding) are the most relevant ones according to Google´s circle sort so they deserve a spot in the Friday sun.  If you´re not in it, be assured I really enjoy your posts and/or comments. I meet a lot of great people here, but this self imposed limit to 100 is just to make it easier for others to circle the whole bunch and check them out.2013-06-21 19:32:111001221459CC G+
Raymond Duke2,369I only use one circle for people I add on G+. This is it. Unfortunately, due to G+'s shortcomings, only 500 people are allowed. Maybe one day they will open it up to more, like Twitter did recently with shared lists. Why do I use just one circle?Because I treat everyone the same. If you are on the internet, it doesn't matter what you do. We are all equal on the web. Our conversations and interactions will determine the context of our relationship, not how I categorize you. 2013-06-20 16:03:47500315CC G+
Gideon Rosenblatt28,713Gideon Rosenblatt's Top 100These are the folks Google tells me are my most relevant people (slightly modified to remove people who are relevant, but not active here on Google+).Looking through this list, I can tell you that these are great people full of interesting ideas and engagement. I'm not in the circle here, so I can objectively say that this group is a worthy addition to your circles. Enjoy this group of people - I know I do. They enrich my experience here. Without them, I probably wouldn't still be here today. P.S. - If you got a notification, that means you're in the circle. 2013-06-11 20:53:39100662467CC G+

Via +Brad Esau 

Conscious and consciousness had to evolve as a way to solve the issue of managing external data into critical life saving, attention directive system. Any theory has to start there. If not, it's all skyhooks (See Daniel Dennett's Darwin's Dangerous Idea for that reference) and pixie dust. 
This chap looks to be on the right track. 
+Daniel Estrada , this may just interest you. 

In a period of rapid evolutionary expansion called the Cambrian Explosion, animal nervous systems acquired the ability to boost the most urgent incoming signals. Too much information comes in from the outside world to process it all equally, and it is useful to select the most salient data for deeper processing.Even in... more »

Chair Repair

Indicative of a wild and wacky Saturday night in the big city. Putting tap and die set to use in chair repair. For even more craziness, I played with the HDR editing on the photo. 
The Cat was somewhat helpful in the operation, jumping on and off chair at key moments.

Now that we are reminded how awful the pros are in forecasting markets, are the individual investors any better? As it turns out, they are even worse. First, they chase performance, not value. At best, they are a lagging, not leading, indicator. Secondly, individuals don't move the needle very much. Money flows into equities have been negative for almost the entire rally since the March 2009 lows.

And Now For Something Completely Different
#vodka   #freezing   #amazingexperience   #Whistler  

This was fun. Vodka tasting in the -10 Celsius Belvedere  tasting room. It was 32 Celsius outside, so this was pretty neat. 
We both had bare legs, so after the fifteen minutes, tasting five different vodkas, our legs and feets were pretty cold.

Peak 2 Peak
Whister British Columbia
#Whistler   #Vancouver  

We were up in Whistler for the week for a bit of a golf get away. Friends were up from California to play all four of the local courses. I joined them the Tuesday at Nicklaus North, and Wednesday at Big Sky. (we won't be discussing scores, and wagers lost...)

The weather was so damn perfect, +Kathryn Nokony and I decided to stay one more night, and do the spectacular Peak 2 Peak experience. 

This is the world's longest cable suspended gondola ride, spanning 4.4 kilometres connecting Blackcomb and Whistler peaks. 
A truly amazing experience, with these photos not nearly doing it justice. 

The trip includes a four thousand foot ski lift ride and the Whistler side, and the same descent down on the Blackcomb side.

This was just despicable. Trying to scare people off insulin because it's #GMO? That's crossing the line from the average stupid anti-GMO propaganda to really risking people's health.

The Ethics of Emotional Manipulation
Media Verses Social Networks
#facebook   #socialmedia   #manipulation  

This is pretty fascinating. To say that media has always done this is pretty trite. Yeah, of course they have. This seems to be the main theme of commentary. No grand marks of insight there.
+Gideon Rosenblatt , thankfully, peels the onion further.

As with so many publicly traded corporation, the divide comes to who is the primary concern: The shareholders ("Increase shareholder value"! has shown to be poor strategy), or your consumers, your customers? 

Where this gets even more interesting is when the publicly traded company is founded upon a social network. The ethics should be clear, look after the people that are your network, the very people who make your model a, um, business.

The Coming Revolution
As Foretold by a One Percent Plutocrat
#thesmartrevolution   #theonepercent   #plutocracts  
Via +Gideon Rosenblatt 

What a wonderful share via +Gideon Rosenblatt . 
The main take away here is that capitalists have to fix capitalism if capitalism is to survive. 
What Nick Hanauer understands clearly, is for a capitalist market economy to work, you need a healthy market place. That is, people who buy stuff. If wealth is mostly concentrated at the very very top, you can't market to those who've nothing to spend. 

Dear 1%ers, many of our fellow citizens are starting to believe that capitalism itself is the problem. I disagree, and I’m sure you do too. Capitalism, when well managed, is the greatest social technology ever invented to create prosperity in human societies. But capitalism left unchecked tends towardconcentra... more »

The Great Disruption Debate
Part Three
#disruption   #thebigshift  
Via +Jim Hays 

Few people are better qualified than +John Hagel for providing perspective on the 'debate' between Jill Lepore and Clay Christensen on the notion of disruption. 

Is the term over-used? Yes. does that mean disruption, what it means, or if it's effects are overblown? No. 
Jill Lepore wrote a reactionary piece on something she didn't particularly understand.

"There are three ways that television displays can be improved, two of which you're probably already familiar with: you can up the density of the pixels, or increase the refresh rate. But Dolby has taken to improving the third factor: They're building a better and brighter pixel."

"Social media are not the powerful and persuasive marketing force many companies hoped they would be," concludes Gallup Inc., which on Monday is releasing a report that examines the subject.

Gallup says 62% of the more than 18,000 U.S. consumers it polled said social media had no influence on their buying decisions. Another 30% said it had some influence. U.S. companies spent $5.1 billion on social-media advertising in 2013, but Gallup says "consumers are highly adept at tuning out brand-related Facebook and Twitter content."

Le Revolution
#opensource   #theonepercent   #thesmartrevolution  
Via +Joe Raimondo 

It's coming. You heard it hear first. 
The principles of organization that have dominated for 5,000 years were based on power over, and the acquisition of that power. 
That principle is changing. 
Leadership and power will remain, but how we get it, and how we keep it is going to change remarkably. Leading in networks is a whole different game. 

"We are at the end of a five-thousand-year-plus historical process during which human society grew in scale while it abandoned the early indigenous wisdom councils and communal decision-making," he writes in The Open Source Everything Manifesto. "Power was centralised in the hands of increasingly specialised 'elites' and 'experts' who not only failed to achieve all theypromise... more »

A Time To Act
Climate Change
#rightwing   #conservative   #climatechange  

A superb piece from none other than former Treasury Secretary and Goldman Sachs Chief Executive Officer Hank Paulson.
The reaction should be interesting. 

THERE is a time for weighing evidence and a time for acting. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned throughout my work in finance, government and conservation, it is to act before problems become too big to manage.

For too many years, we failed to rein in the excesses building up in the nation’s financial markets. When the credit bubble burst in 2008, the damage was devastating. Millions suffered. Many still do.

We’re making the same mistake today with climate change. We’re staring down a climate bubble that poses enormous risks to both our environment and economy. The warning signs are clear andgrowing more ... more »

Of Bureaucratic Indifference
And Fatal Inaction
#generalmotors   #whistleblower  

It gets ever harder to have a shred of respect for +General Motors . 

Now GM professes contrition, promises change, and has ousted 15 individuals for misconduct or incompetence. Announcing the Valukas findings to an audience of employees on June 5, Barra called the report “extremely thorough, brutally tough, and deeply troubling.” *It describes a corporate bureaucracy fatally indifferent to mounting evidence its cars were killing people. “Group after group and committee after committee within GM that reviewed the issue failed to take action or acted too slowly,” Valukas writes. “Although everyone had responsibility to fix the problem, nobody took responsibility.”_

When [Guillaume Bazot of the Paris School of Economics] adds capital income to the numbers, he finds that the financial industry’s share of GDP has been steadily increasing in recent decades (see chart). This is hardly surprising. Finance’s influence on the economy is emphasised every day on the nightly news, and the best and brightest graduates head for finance because, to quote Willie Sutton, “That’s where the money is.”

The central question that the finance industry needs to answer is this: why has its increased importance been associated with slower economic growth in the developed world and a greater number of asset bubbles?

As U.S. Debt Heads Towards Twenty Trillion
What Happens When the Inevitable Happens

Spurred by an earlier post from +Jeffrey J Davis on the U.S. climbing debt (https://plus.google.com/u/0/+JeffreyJDavis/posts/PvA5365cxBP), I did a little digging for when the inevitable happens. 

I don't want to minimize the pain that would follow. It would be painful, very painful. 
But when a global economy is built upon debt, something has the break. 
This is what happens when you let the financiers run the economy.

Life on the Move

Between April and the beginning of June I visited eight cities, six countries and two continents giving speeches, presentations or taking part in workshops. I saw upwards of 2,000 people ranging from financiers and tech investors to SEOs, corporate executives, VPs and CEOs. 

When you travel like this you learn to exist in the spaces in-between. Airports and the inside of planes become places where you can unplug and regenerate. Hotel rooms become charging stations. Then other things begin to happen: you notice the patterns that develop because of issues being faced. 

From technology companies to pharma, from consumer product ones to digital goods the pressures are the same: companies are redefining who they are, crystallizing their unique selling points (USP) and working to allow their identities to emerge. Their customers, increasingly vocal,m... more »

The Dumbest Idea in The World
Part Two
#onepercent   #incomeinequality   #valuedestruction  

More stakes for the heart of this destructive concept. Destructive to the organization, destructive to society. 

"Usually these initiatives look good on paper, and therefore deliver a rapid boost to the company's share price. However, actually delivering the value these initiatives promise is much more tricky.

The result is that up to 80% of these initiatives fail to deliver on their promises. Meanwhile, the executives who started them years earlier have banked their bonus, sold their share options and moved on, often to start similar restructuring initiatives at another company.

The people left behind -- such as longer term shareholders and employees -- are left to pick up the pieces."
