Got Social Mediology?  One of 8 books featured on KUSI San Diego's morning show this morning.  Probably the first and only time where I will share even the verbal stage with Gene Hackman.

If you have been in business for a while one thing is for sure.  Life will give you lemons.

What do you do with your lemons?  Try to give them away?  Or do you really make something that will be refreshing to others, that will make you and them more productive?

#internetdoctor   #businesspsychology  
We have all heard it right? "When life gives you lemons make lemonade". Pretty good advice, but more difficult to put into practice. This little ancient saying that has been around since...well...lemonade, is one of those things that we say, but not many of us really think about it, ...

Is it possible that with Facebook's policy changes for businesses that Google+ will see greater use?

Comments from folks following the article on "Facebook to Consumers:  You're Idiots" suggests that at least some people plan to use G+ as a new outlet over Facebook.

Thoughts?

Is Google+ Really Dead?

I have been reading a great deal lately that G+ is dead...well...at the very least it is on life support.

But is it really?

I'm not so sure.

Let's be clear about Google in general.  They are like the wise old owl in the 70's Tootsie Pop commercial when asked, "how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?"  Answer:  The World May Never Know.  That is the mystery of Google, we really do not know.

Like everyone else I have an opinion, here are some of my thoughts.

1.  Separating the social network into photo streams and post streams does not mean ending the platform, it seems to me to be more of a Facebook/Instagram research project.  Break it down into posts and photo sharing.

2.  Google+ still has fairly consistent activity.  It doesn't make much sense to delete a network that clearly is see by the users as useful.

3.  Google+ still has power.  Interestingly enough posting on G+ still ranks well in Google Search.

4.  It would not behoove Google to abandon social media when more of the world is embracing social media in a variety of platforms.

I know full well that G+ biggest problem is they have not found their niche.  They have not identified their culture, and certainly it has not made a huge statement in the social media world.  However, before we declare it dead, let's make sure what we are seeing in these changes are not just growing pains that lead to something better.

The last thing I would want to do is bet against Google or G+ for that matter.

Stay Successful My Friends!

If your business is going social...bottom line is...be social.
Social care demand rose in Q4 by the most significant margin of the year; but overwhelmingly, brands responded less frequently and more slowly than they did in Q3.

So what is the opposite of professional?

Are you thinking unprofessional?

Think again...there is a difference.

#InternetDoctor   #careersuccess   #hiringtips   #professionaldevelopment  
What makes someone professional? Is it their attire? Is it their knowledge? Is it their credibility? Skill? Maturity? All of these? Some of these? Or something more? Professionalism is a bit of a quandary for most of us. It is difficult to explain. What one person deems professional may not be ...

Introduction
Social Mediologist, Speaker, Author, Consultant, Stat and Research Critic, Neuro-marketing enthusiast.

I help entrepreneurs and small businesses achieve greater benefits in social media and the internet by understanding the psychology of their consumer, and reducing their marketing budget.

Technology will change and their are some very cool pieces of technology available to us today, but not everything is necessary.  It is very easy for the small business to be overwhelmed with all the voices and opinions that they hear.    

The fact is regardless of the technology it comes down to the user and their culture.  If we understand the user and culture of each social media platform or online user interface we can increase the ROI of a business simply by understanding and entering in their world in the right way, transforming customers and consumers into real clients.

Came to this hotel for a conference. Will never go back! Why? 1. The room was equivalent to what you would find at a Motel 6, but you pay the nearly $300 night price 2. I had a great balcony view, if you like looking at the air-conditioning units and all the crap that people throw or has been left on the roof. 3. Nothing like paying $5 for a bottle of 50 cent water (Mark up on everything was outrageous) 4. The "breakfast buffet" was $25 for no omelette station, simply scrambled eggs, watered down juice, stale bread (no bagels), and some unappetizing looking fruit. (Cheaper to go down the road I learned) 5. No restaurant in the hotel 6. Wi-fi is expensive and is not as fast as your cellphone (I ran a speed test to verify) 7. No refrigerator in the room (Clever to force you to pay $5 for cold water and the inability to store anything) 8. You could here everything on the floor above you and the room next to you...I mean EVERYTHING! Now all that said, the concierge staff was great! They were very helpful and accommodating, but after this experience I would go somewhere else for the money...you will be sorely disappointed for the price.

Great hotel convenient to Broadway on Nashville. Right next store is the Palm restaurant. Staff is friendly and very helpful. Recently they have updated the rooms and they are amazing! The sports restaurant (which is part of the hotel) has very good food and service (try the flat bread pizza). Saxophone player plays in the lobby around 5 pm nearly every evening. We loved just sitting at the lobby bar ordering a glass of wine and just listening to her. If you are looking for a pool and/or jacuzzi they have closed them down. Which in my opinion would make this hotel 5 stars. The workout facility is getting an upgrade we will be back to see how it looks when they are finished. This is our "Go To" hotel in Nashville, I am convinced you will enjoy the location and convenience to so many venues and places.

Great facility! The staff was welcoming and kind. I went on a Saturday morning and my wait was only a few minutes. Brook the PA was thorough and professional. My prescriptions were handled easily. I thought this is one of the best facilities I have been in years. I would encourage you to use their services.

If you want some great food and even greater music check out BB Kings. They have some amazing talent! The ribs are "off the chain"! Late night they rock it up a little bit with 70s, 80s. 90s, dance music. Fun place! You really need to go!
