ISOOSI Research Engine3,422Roles 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 21:00:0077G+

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 18:00:0090G+

Meloney Hall2,669Teacher 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 + You272We 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 Shankle1,373It'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 01:30:0064G+

(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+

Game Changer?
Sure Looks Like It
#Amazon #gamechanger

The commerce angle here is what makes this very interesting, tied into the Amazon shopping network. Then again, consumers are a fickle lot.
Something to keep an eye on, for sure.

That is, 'teams' are the ones killed, jailed, compromised, etc. As they are relatively small and agile, there is a swarm effect to the movement of product. 
Drug enforcement agencies may snuff out one or two teams but dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of others make it through. Like ants. 

There is no rigid supply system, no rigid retail system that agencies can attack or thwart, only tens of thousands of agile 'teams' who by self preservation, continually innovate ways to move the product. 

Interestingly, Japanese car manufacturers use a network supply system, so if something goes wrong in one web of the supply movement, it can be quickly networked around to other suppliers.

Yesterday, we described the Sprint deal as a Netflix-like unbundling of mobile data options, an à la carte alternative to standard all-access data plans that resemble nothing so much as cable’s all-or-nothing bundles that force you to pay for channels you don’t actually want. And there’s a truth to this. But a prominent New York venture capitalist has a far more pessimistic take on the new trend toward unlimited data for certain apps. Fred Wilson, co-founder of Union Square Ventures, views such deals—which he calls “zero rating”—as a discriminatory salvo against mobile innovation.

“What all of this zero rating activity is setting up is a mobile internet that looks a lot more like cable TV than our wide open Internet,” Wilson writes. “Soon, a startup will have to negotiate a zero rating plan before launching because mobile app customers will be trained to only use apps that are zero rated on their network.”

In other words, he sees this as the opposite of Netflix. And indeed, it could present some serious obstacles to the next generation of mobile innovators.___

So
Now What?
#googleplus   #facebook   #socialnetwork   #socialstrategy  

A few additional thoughts to +Gideon Rosenblatt 's sound look at the state of play of G+. 
Despite all the trash talk in earlier years of G+ kicking Facebook's ass, that didn't happen.
Facebook is stronger than ever, it's stock didn't tank, Zuckerberg has shown to be a very capable leader, and Facebook is actually useful to a lot of people and businesses. 

While G+ is useful to Google, how useful it is to the social media efforts of businesses big and small depends on whether or not businesses commit to it as a platform for the social media strategy (um, if they have one). 

This is, some ten-fiveteen years in, still very early in the game. 
I am of the very strong opinion the G+ platform can be a superb platform for brand social media (and I am sure thereare many... more »

Well, now that Hangouts no longer requires a Google+ profile and it's looking like Photos will fast follow suit (http://goo.gl/mLxxl5), I just want to highlight some thoughts I shared back in April, riffing off of some musings from +Mark Traphagen. 

=-=-=-=-=-====-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Like many of us, my first response to hearing about Vic's leaving was that of anyone dealing with the prospect that they may have just sunk a huge amount of energy into a losing horse. But then, I quickly moved past the denial and started trying reconcile how statements from people I trust here about a continued future for G+ and a sudden departure from Vic could both make sense. I think what Mark paints in this post is a very plausible explanation. And it's very well articulated.

Many of us feel a strong sense of loyalty to this network, but that doesn't mean we have to put our heads into the sand and deny the possibility that real change may well be in the works here. 

First, let me say that none of us really know exactly what is happening right now, but here's how I see it the 3 core components that have been developed here on Google+. 

1) Social Widgets/Apps: These include really cool functionality that is much better when it's social. Examples include Hangouts, Photos, Comments. These things are going to be even more valuable when freed from the G+ mothership and allowed to integrate with all of Google's properties. Even then though, one of the key places of integration will continue to be Google+. I use Comments on my WordPress site, for example, and it's great, but it wouldn't be nearly as interesting were it not for the fact that it connects to posts here, where a much higher volume of people are congregating. 

2) Identity and Social Graph: This is backend data that is now worth way more because of what Google+ has catalyzed. It's not just the identity, but the social graph as well and it will not only continue to make Google more and more money - not just for improving user intelligence and ad targeting, but as Mark points out, it's likely to be increasingly surfaced to commercial customers as incredibly valuable data for websites (Analytics, etc.)

3) Content Stream: This is the reason I believe that Google+ the social network will continue to exist, re-branded or not. The volume of material now streaming through this service is critically important to Google's ability to identify interesting content. Social sharing of links has a way higher volume and velocity than the links we now share via websites. To abdicate access to a stream like this would be a big mistake at this point. Were Google to kill this stream now, after so many people had invested so much time and energy into building it, I think it would be near impossible to rekindle that trust again later. Trust is a huge aspect of getting people to invest in pouring content into a engine like this. This can't be underestimated. 

This is how I reconcile the various bits of information we're seeing over this last week. Components 1 and 2 could very well slide back into a more generic Google brand (and probably need to), while 3 is going to make more sense as a continued G+ presence. 

The original post from 4/27/14:

This is, some ten-fiveteen years in, still very early in the game. 
I am of the very strong opinion the G+ platform can be a superb platform for brand social media (and I am sure there are many success stories, and I am also of the opinion that the success of name brands using G+ will be what drives further growth. 
What that growth would reflect is that brand's have created demonstrable value for their customers here on G+, a reason to be here, a level of engagement that many brands have yet to achieve (imo). 

To get that, or there, brands have to come to represent something more than just themselves. And that's a tough nut to crack. This branding strategy goes back at least to the '70's with Coca-Cola's ads, and British Airways from the 1980's to name two high profile attempts, yet they always seem to fall flat. 
Now, in the supposed new age of social business, can brands finally make that leap? Can they successfully use G+ or Facebook to set themselves apart from all the other talk the talk, screw the walk businesses out there? 

We'll see. I'll know when we get there, when I see the irrefutable evidence via my social networks, and those brands are coming to our pages to celebrate.
If not, it will be just more of the same old push marketing stapled onto 'social' media, instead of the true "pull" of social media we've been hoping for since the very early promise of the internet days.

The fundamental strength of businesses moving forward is the quality of their ecosystem, an ecosystem that will have much different concepts of boundaries than the old stand alone pyramid models. 

_That provides the context for driving learning, both within your organization and across a broader ecosystem. And, make no mistake about it, if all you do is focus on learning within the four walls of your firm, you’ve already lost. The key to scaling learning is to be able to reach out beyond your enterprise and find ways to connect with world-class participants in a broad array of complementary domains in ways that will help all participants to learn faster. _

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 insects and crustaceans have a basic version of this ability to focus on certain signals. Over time, though, it came under a more sophisticated kind of control — what is now called attention. Attention is a data-handling method, the brain’s way of rationing its processing resources. It has been found and studied in a lot of different animals. Mammals and birds both have it, and they diverged from a common ancestor about 350 million years ago, so attention is probably at least that old.___

Chair Repair
#HDR  

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.

But We Knew This
Right?
#markets  

Let’s begin with the forecasting portion of our discussion. The abilities of strategists and economists to foresee the future run from merely horrible to embarrassingly foolish. Someone gets it right each year more or less at random, but there is little reason to put much faith in the predictions of the pros. As we discussed last week, expert forecasts are statistically indistinguishable from random guesses. And, there is little or no penalty for being wildly inaccurate.

Next up, we'll talk about weather forecasters...

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.___But We Knew This

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.

Why Group Think
Is Bad
#gmo   #groupthink  
Via +Mary Mangan 

If you want to be against a corporation having a monopoly over genetically modified products, and have undue influence over our food supply, and government, I think that's awesome, and I fully support that.
But that doesn't mean shutting out your ability to think for yourself, to question, and to faithfully and blindly pass on bad science as fact to support your cause. 
This is the worse of group think, and the inability to think critically.

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 leadership (or lack thereof) at Facebook, continually show disregard for ethics, or where their loyalties lie. And your bread and butter, the people of your network shouldn't be unwitting pawns in a greater game.

A very neat bit of research that underscores the need for diversity, and the premise of my SmartSwarms system. 

"They attribute this inefficiency to "groupthink," the psychological phenomenon in which members of a group make poor decisions because they fail to consider viewpoints other than their own. "When you are really familiar with each other, you tend not to go outside of your circle to get an outside opinion," Xuan says."

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 toward concentration and collapse. It can be managed either to benefit the few in the near term or the many in the long term. The work of democracies is to bend it to the latter. That is why investments in the middle class work. And tax breaks for rich people like us don’t. Balancing the power of workers and billionaires by raising the minimum wage isn’t bad for capitalism. It’s an indispensable tool smart capitalists use to make capitalism stable and sustainable. And no one has a bigger stake in that than zillionaires like us.___
