In her acceptance speech for the Best Actress Oscar in 1984, Sally Field famously said “You like me, right now, you like me!”. We want to be liked, it’s nice to be liked but, until now, there hasn’t been a way to quantify all that liked-ness.
As you might have seen from our blogs and newsletters over the last few months, we’ve been very active with our product development, new directions on our website (including blogs) and much effort to improve our customer response times, etc. Some of this activity has happened, as it should, in response to our customers’ feedback.
Well, it’s Sunday night and time for some “off topic” musings. As you probably know I have a bit of a thing for music. One of the problems I have is that liking a broad range of music makes it more and more difficult to keep up to date with new and exciting music.
I wrote some time ago about the release of Google Wave, and how seductive new technology could be. Recently though, it has been reported that Google has dropped the concept as it just didn’t gain any traction amongst users. Now in my view, the concept is a brilliant one, consolidate all of your messaging into one platform, and collaborate with anyone, anywhere. Today's blog is about the demise of Google Wave and the death of the album!
In my last article I talked about the differences between Social Media and Traditional Media and the importance of choosing the way you communicate through these channels. I’m going to continue in that vain with an example of how it’s done.
Just over three years ago Jasmine Star dropped out of Law School to become a Wedding Photographer. Although a keen photographer, she had no real professional experience, but had just been married herself and loved the idea of working on the other side of her wedding photographer’s lens.
Well the Wrinkle certainly under-called the grassroots dissatisfaction in the Australian electorate last week. We are now left with the prospect of either a hung parliament or a minority government. The next month will prove interesting as the jockeying for advantage continues.
It is just a few short years ago that the term ‘Social Media’ was confined to sociology labs and textbooks. Today, of course, Social Media is something that pervades just about every part of our lives, from family and relationships through to shopping and the way we get our news. People interact in the social media cloud hundreds of times a day. Some even prefer to communicate via social media than in a more conventional way, i.e. talking, and there's no doubt that social media is the new way to make friends and influence people.
With all the current spin and activity out there surrounding the election, it’s interesting to see where people are putting their money. Labour is still paying $1.50 to the Coalition's $2.98 and someone during the week put $200k on Labour through Sportsbet at $1.50. The equal spread is minus 3 seats to Labour.
Are you passionate about your business? For me, along with financial goals and various benefits of controlling your own destiny, the thing that I keep coming back to year after year is the passion I have for the business we are in, the fabulous changes that technology can bring to how business is conducted, the enjoyment of working with a team of like minded people and the achievement of enabling other businesses to use technology successfully.
Most web image faux pas relate to poor save quality and the format in which they're saved out, i.e. .jpg, .png, .gif, as well as inappropriate file sizes (possibly the greatest faux pas of them all).
