#Cinch… Que Vacilon! This is SOOO MUCH FUN! (on #Broadcasting #Techniques)

24 Nov

Well, here’s what I did today in terms of EXPANDING my ‘arsenal’ (Forget that silly Kingdoms of Camelot, THIS stuff requires more REAL research than what those fake Alchemists do whilst ‘working’ in that Fake hall!) in terms of leveraging what’s out there, for me and my customers.


This neat little Web Platform, essentially allows you to record and later (well, not so late if you have an iPhone, as they already have an app for it… me? DON’T ask!) publish via shortened URL the recording that was made… knowing the little that I know about Telco, I can only THANK those who came up with this very FORWARD looking application of a traditional Voice Mail system, and I can only think of the day when BTR ties it in, as candidly speaking, this interface has much more HORSEPOWER than the one they have for the basic (read: free/unpaid) one at BTR.

Anyway, the feeling of being able to LEVERAGE otherwise wasted time on the car by ‘creating’ these clips, well, it’s just EXHILARATING to some of us (yeah, I’m writing some CAPS as I’m REALLY, REALLY excited about this!)… and why? well, at least for some of us, a nice oldie and a Venti can get our neurons to jump from synapse to synapse, and with Cinch, there’s no LOSS of the ‘concepts’ or ideas that may pour forth at otherwise UNUSABLE times; in other words, we can not only CAPTURE some great thoughts and ‘audio blog’ with them, but also, maybe have a customer’s script ready to be loaded WHILE we drive to that same customer’s meeting? or otherwise leverage tools that may sit unused for a while in the creation of the segments that would drive our BTR show (which I’m sure is the sole reason why BTR is there along with this interface, speculatively speaking?)

Anyway, here are the tweets, at least for me it was a BLAST, and I hope that y’all find them to be worth your while!…

Saludos!

#ClipboardNuggets – Developing My Pitch for #SM (Social Media)

30 Oct

Today, whilst answering an FB-Mail about what I precisely do nowadays**…  an acquaintance stated:

“…do you do web pages and the like?

Beyond the Basics of Today...

My husband and I are starting a new biz… have a website under construction… its okay for now but [we] may decide to do something a little more fancy down the road, right now our cash is tied up in getting the store open…

just curious for future reference...”

So then I replied:

Sure, more than actually helping build sites (I can do some basic Flash for banners and the like) what I tell my customers nowadays is that the current Conventional Wisdom for driving traffic to one’s site, is to look at the Core Business Processes and the Goals of the organization, towards then creating a mix of Social Media ‘Personas’ that allow it to not only rise to the SEO rankings (Search Engine Optimization, I’m sure that has come up in the budget talks) but also to keep YOUR company in the eyes of the actual CUSTOMERS, which for SMB’s (Small-Medium Business) worldwide is now becoming more of a matter of keeping them not only informed, with the latest and greatest promotions, product news, events and the like, but also with the value of being yet another ‘content provider’ in THEIR social media home pages, one that usually brings a smile or two to their days (I’m sure you as the renowned Radio Personality that you are, can vouch for its value, correct?) and even, become the ‘hub’ for many of their ‘communal’ activities.

In other words, sites alone are no longer cutting the mustard, they need to be “garnished”, so to speak, with yummy sides of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIN, YouTube, StumbleUpon, Diggit, Reddit, Tweetmeme, Cinch, Meetup.Com, etc, etc…

Then you’ll see the value and the ROI (return on investment) of what you have already spent on the site, and much like many other local businesses that have successfully leveraged these sites, eventually find yourself focusing on them social media gateways as the actual places where the prospects are to be found.

How do we build most everything else? and why not Systems, too?

How do we build most everything else? and why not Systems, too?

I am looking forward then to discussing with you both any eventual plans to deploy a well-thought-out social media strategy for your business.

Sincerely,

Francisco

P.S: Check out this video on my blog, explains a lot about what I said above, visually… enjoy!”

https://kankuchito.wordpress.com/2009/09/25/socialnomics-prsa-miami-events-takeaways/

Still with me? Bottom line? Much like it was stated in yesterday’s K-Buzz Presentation, pretty soon we’ll find that SMB’s that are actually doing a LOT (specially once serious e-commerce/merchant apps are present on the FB platform) here in Facebook, may end up replacing their investments,  with ‘free’ time on the Homestream…

… which is why I’ve seriously approached my peers in the Web Design biz, and mentioned that they need to UPGRADE their Toolkits/Skillsets with these “garnish” – as to avoid being sucked into a vortex of obsolescence.

  • Think you’re ready for it now? need a hand, perhaps, making sense of it all?

** And why I do ask? now I realize that the INITIAL thread may shed additional light on WHY hiring someone to “draw the blueprints” of your BUSINESS SM strategy, may be a good INVESTMENT after all… ready?

Found YOUR starting point?

Found YOUR starting point?

(Acquaintance contacted me…)

“Hey Francisco…how’s it going???
A long time ago you advised me to do a fan page for us and told me how to do it, but I don’t remember….

is there a way to transfer a friend page to a fan page??? I am interested in doing so for my personal profile… and so is another friend for his own page…

… help if you can oh technical guru! :)”
So I promptly answered:
“Dear Friend

 

Sadly, that’s one of the BIGGEST hurdles posed by Facebook, and no, the reason why I told y’all from the get go, it’s because so far, at least in the little I know ’bout them, you have to start from SCRATCH.I’ve seen folks that then let their ‘friends’ know that they need to go over there, and in turn, they “connect” the Fan Page to the Personal Profile, thereby making all updates and content generation START there, and still be published on the Personal Profile.

 

Sole Caveat about this workaround? those who have then become fans will get the updates DUPLICATED (once for the Friend, and once for the Fan Page)

All of the above actually being the reason why I suggested it from the get-go, have seen many businessess NOT heed that warning, get to the 5k limit on the Personal Profile, and/or find some other hindrance, and end up having to manage (manually) both profiles, segregating friends, from fans, etc.

Hooked up on EDUCATION!

Hooked up on EDUCATION!

Serendipitiously there was a Webinar yesterday about it, and this topic came up, and no, there is no solution up to this minute…. does Facebook know? most likely… will they ever change it? dunno, maybe, everything’s kinda looking the same up to this moment (meaning, profiles, pages and groups are all following the same “Use Cases” and working very much alike)

Hope this helps… and good luck!

Francisco

P.S: BTW, were you aware that above is now my biz? I’m sure you have one or two peeps in your network that may be able to benefit from your letting them know that now I do this for a living, feel free to forward them my information, I’m covering the whole of Southern Florida (or anywhere anyone wants me to work remotely, too!)

Saludos!”

YouTube Channel – From John Chow, visiting IZEA…

10 Oct

Well, while I finally get my first videos together, I have decided to just keep the Channel interesting by gathering materials from the many people I’ve met (or heard of!) in the past few weeks…

… So whilst Googling IZEA within YouTube, let’s hear what John Chow has to say about ’em (and also, ‘cuz I closed the week with a similar visit to the place!…hehe!)

… in my case, thanks to Twitter, I was able to get my time added to @TedMurphy‘s schedule before hand!…

Enjoy!

Well, as you may have figured out by now, I draw into my blog the input of many of the people I interact with in my Social Media endeavors; I mean, if you come to think of it, the current structured threads that sometimes stem from a single status comment, are now documented as being a brand-new “interaction mode” for the people who participate – and for sure, even those who just spend their time reading them, must have a laugh or two at the “heated” debates that sometimes ensue, the silliness and overall atmosphere of “gathering” that they emanate.

... reasons to smile?

... reasons to smile?

That is why I’ve already posted a couple of them, in what I call “Seen on a Wall Near You” as what a better way to hash out a topic, than to have an CMAC (Computer Mediated Asynchronous Communication) forum do it for you?

Therefore, apropos recent news about Facebook’s reaching certain milestones ahead of schedule, a fellow FB’er posted…

(Anne) heard a report today that Facebook has almost as many registered users as the entire U.S. population and that they have just now turned a profit! Congrats Mark Zuckerberg! 🙂

Yup… get ready for less gridlock (hopefully!) as they have the moolah to improve the infrastructure… maybe a billion peeps, next milestone?

… and did you every come across an article that mentioned the real “power” behind it? SF folks such as Thiel?

“Facebook is one manifestation of this ideology. Like PayPal before it, it is a social experiment, an expression of a particular kind of neoconservative libertarianism. On Facebook, you can be free to be who you want to be, as long as you don’t mind being bombarded by adverts for the world’s biggest brands. As with PayPal, national boundaries are a thing of the past…” (The Guardian, 2008)

Oh my I’ll have to take a look at that… what’s SF?

Francisco Jose Palacio

San Francisco; Silicon Valley types…

Interesting read, right?

(Anne)

Ohh… yeh, SV is the place to be for Angels and VCs, especially for Tech and Online Companies.

So we can then agree that Mark is surrounded by Arch-angels? Thiel, Gates – and who knows who else is lining up for that IPO, which you and me are feeding in its valuation as we spend more and more time in this place!

Yeah I wish I could be apart of that IPO, but I’m sure the value will be too rich for my pockets. LOL!

Francisco Jose Palacio

Same here; all I hope for it is to happen as that would also be a “signal” that the economy is finally coming out of the Boonies… I mean, I doubt it won’t happen at a time when they won’t be able to get the most out of it (like right now!)…

… and also, as techies that we are, I drool at the potential of applications similar as this one making their way as SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) deployments for the next-gen of GroupWare.

I mean, these 300 million peeps? all happily beta-testing this one, would you not agree?

(Bob)

Check the books. I think they’re counting the money exchanged in Mafia Wars as part of their profit… 🙂

(Anne)

LOL!
