Thanks for visiting Media Marketing Communications. My name is Robert Bridge, I live in North London, network on and offline and share helpful information about media, technology and communications.
Social media communications requires in all honesty a can do approach. If you think you can then you probably will. Already many social media speakers with high online ROI numbers are sharing in ways that you can try and adapt yourself. New platforms are always popping up but same principle’s apply. Networking is something unique to all. Often your objectives are clouded by the platform objectives these popular social media sites have in order to monetise business model. Finding an in between balance, supporting as spending brands and narrowing your knowledable focus equally could help springboard your endeavours.
You think of yourself as tall,dark and handsome? Expecting a stranger to walk into your life sometime soon? These leading questions and ones like them are fake and distracting.
You are who you are and it is, what it is.
Peace comes about in fascinating ways, each experience blows me away. When I hear people talk from the heart; I feel fully awake, want to mirror this type of sharing and feel the nourishment of words inside myself.
Language of the heart is not shibboleths or something to be intimidated by. Very rarely heart talk leads to anger, frustration or discontent from others in the vicinity. Giving access to allow your heart into your communication organs does not put strain on your body, breath or blood flow.
Challenges arise, boundaries get broken and people around you do not understand what has happened in your head. The heart ensures a stronger force is present which cultivates saying likable things about people, and not getting roped into judgements.
Inside you have an abundant amount of skills that no one can comprehend, it’s up to you to take the reins on this one. The carriages you have privilege to pull and linked together in an uniformed way attracted by various things you have said and done. We have all proved ourselves at sometime and felt compelled to do good deeds.
Examples are so many in numbers but it wasn’t always that way.
We all started of small and like muscles we grew in girth and length. Thankfully society has given us freedom to think about what needs doing. Sometimes our time is charitable, family service or giving back. Like 10% charity 90% we deserve ourselves. Imagine spending doing this authentically for just you.
Knowledge of self is good because you are protected. Your imprint on the world suppressed or on a mission is very personal. Remember please the past like a memory is just that. And however you paint your future is nothing compared to the true presence of now.
Learning is happening constantly for ourselves and other people. If we ask for help constantly then at every important stage second opinions are needed.
Once we know who we are and have learned the basics of what we need to know to implement, fit in, with what needs doing it should be plain sailing. unfortunately this is not always the case. You are not the only pea in the pod. Other people will display feats of power and illusion, this is not to say they were born with a silver spoon in their mouth, blessed with the gifts of the gab or just like bugging people, the world is full of challenges.
Mastering your emotions, learning again to increase your flexibility and constantly connecting dots to brighten the spider graph / mind map of situations happens when you allow it too.
Every corner has lessons being sold to you and we live in a world of excuses. Your identity reinforces itself when you step out of this arena. Looking at posters of leading centurions will only lead you into the tigers den.
Society needs warriors, not worriers. Take yourself out of the question, cloak yourself with invisibility, turn on aerial K9 ears and listen carefully. This does not mean finish sentences for others or make any assumptions from historical recollections or tar other people with the same brush. Just save the red alerts for when you need them based on simple laws of elementary and deduction. You can always tear yourself out the picture when need be.
You are your own portrait and you can revisit that painting whenever you want. Yes there are coachable trews which will make you look certain ways. Legacy or philanthropy determines what this angle may be. Put your on a moveable rig, imagine having a drone to fly around you like it could if it would your favourite landscape location. One angle shows leadership, another shows sensitivity or instills trust in other people. This type of knowledge will last for a while. There is no changing fashion in these sides of you. Since man has crushed grapes these poses have existed. Art gives hints of what works outside the realms of change.
We should not avoid history or theology like we do for the shape it has made us is real. To historians and theologians perhaps we are just putty in their hands, however my hope is you cultivate your own inner compass. This should help you when shaping your own identity. Its time to ground yourself firmly on a potter’s wheel of your own making to mould your own patterns.
Together in a class competition will help you shape things better. Challenges will get in the way and slow down the ticking clock. Get fired up, stay cool and go with the flow. The amount of time you direct on developing skills your toolbox expands. You can go out into the world and give 10% of your energy listening to other people’s mistakes and needs.
Words are very powerful and they transform the way we feel sometimes. You can change your thoughts on matters by simply changing the narrative so I did that because I wanted to. If you are seeking verification of things in communications to see if this is the case I have jotted down some simple suggestions.
Verification of things you say is not as easy as verifying an email address password change. I am not Microsoft. Verification of things you talk about in various scenarios will determine your why. Whatever the reasoning behind it we will take a look and even touch base with some examples of good and bad reasons. I want some of you to come away from seeking and realising your own power of observation. Validating hunchs can take years. Clearing much of the clutter in the mind helps when you clean up or prevent making a mess in the first place.
When you are worried about something words can become garbled. Even if you are listening to what words are coming out of your mouth, perhaps the people on the other side of the room cannot hear a word you are saying. Perhaps they ask you to speak up and in doing so helping you elevate your tone of voice. Then again any help could make you worry, even more, say less next time or walk away. My point is communications work both ways. Online simple packets pass through hubs which translate messages. There are known codes which help machines translate text and now apps translate words almost immediately. If you speak clearly, use correct grammar and avoid slang words the machine can more easily understand what it is you are trying to communicate with people. Even then the words may come out garbled and robotic. Technology can not sort everything out. Neither should you.
There is no need to worry if no one validates your ideas. They are only ideas. Even if they contest your research if you have done all your homework correctly you should easily be able to bring reports up to a standard acceptable to your peers. In the workplace, this will be at first very frustrating. Starting off on the right foot may help, boiling kettles, packed lunches and bottles all help blend in during those first few crucial months. If you can be nervous without showing your nervousness you should be fine. Nerves only make other people nervous. Looking happy wins most battles. However, you should not still be smiling when punishments are being dished out because they may think you are not listening or like being punished.
If validation is not a protocol of working with other people and is for your own project online is a great way of getting feedback. It might not be the feedback you expected but still, something is better than nothing. Try different places. Most people want help with simple things. By being of help, you will hang around long enough to meet the people you need. The more you type and the more you just keep churning away the more the chance to something developing.
You might have to let go of any reservations you have about what you are saying. If it is really bad there is always someone willing to share their own experience of making mistakes communicating online with other human beings. You must understand not everyone is reading in English. Culturally there are stops which mean people from whatever country are reluctant to interject. The terminology may have become lost in translation. The sound of what was said may have been stifled by something more important advertising itself to you. Some things are so powerful, made better and more entertaining than the main feature, so please do not get concerned about being too distracted or disinterested because it happens to the best of us.
In science, the search for validation is done under laboratory conditions which help prove right from wrong. Maths communicate in similar ways. They are both either right or wrong. Over years knowledge expands. In the past few decades alone there have been a lot of changes. Put this in the context of our communications which others and you have a better idea of how complex language, communications, persuasion and media really are. Now one Moji could explain everything. Similarly, you will be in competition with people who have what they are trying to say tattooed on their head or neck. The work ethos is not always as tribal however out there in the real world your validation is necessary. You have already embraced so much and put up with much more. Main concerns seem to be identity. Ethnicity perhaps, other peoples religion, clashes of past identity and preferences can hold you back. Making yourself comfortable in the office is best done when it is your office, not somebody else’s. We were not all around during the summer of 76, however, there is always more momentary years than others. You can use these sweeping generalisations to make who you are speaking to more comfortable. The easiest thing to guess these days is age. Even with all the beauty products out there, you can see the age in the crows of peoples eyes.
As much as you want validation; understand this: not everyone seeks validation of their own mortality and existence. Some people are just happy in the now. They walk around with a dustpan, brush and mop as they go along. The clutter is not an issue for them because there is none. If you are like me, more patient and willing to understand the roles of other people in society we will all just get along fine. I try not to step on too many sets of toes. I do not say this likely and try at every step not to mince words. Each sentence is like part of a puzzle and when everything slots into place people comment with feedback and how they see it. Basically, our minds are all over the place. One train of thought can activate or release someone else’s pain and woe. If you open your mouth half the battle is won. Unless you’re in a foreign country of conflict and stand out like a sore thumb.
If you ask for something and they give you the wrong thing you will have to go back and get the correct ticket. We are all on different paths in territories often unknown. This it is why you should do your own research before rushing around, day after day, alone on a hill, with the man that is there standing perfectly still “fool!”. With some people, you should raise your tone and others you may need to soften it a little. Depending on how clever you think people are and the expertise of people you’ll use the right terminology. Simple or complicated the important thing to do is get your point across. Speaking one to one or millions of people on Instagram you want to share an unambiguous message. Some people will completely not get it, in fact, the chances are they will not even notice. People see a direct reflection of where their own head is at, all you have to do is ask rather than request a smile.
There is always somebody pressuring us to do right things and as writers pressurising us to write is a good thing. There are a few simple ways to spot when bloggers are being pressured into doing things. Equally outside forces mean we can make certain assumptions about people might be thinking. This article is not me touching up someone else’s post. At least I don’t think it is. I not plan what comes out, nor do I have a desire to finish any sentences for you. So, with all that said I shall continue with this months entry.
Hi my name is Robert Bridge and I’d just like to thank Reddit for 100’s of visitors last month (May 2017). I am the main writer on this blog, as a matter of fact its just me all alone which is great that I do not have anyone finishing sentences for me. I know about how hard it is sometimes when people expect you to hang on every shallow word they say. Academic, a new YouTube video or some sudden biblical revelation is very personal.
I try not to get too personal and my comments I sure you agree are very superficial on the surface although lasting in a significant enough way to avoid any unnecessary instant dismissal.
Everyday it seems most people I know are tortured or distracted in the most unusual and unique ways. Many nets have been cast in the world of personal development, truths seekers and those of a similar ilk.
Procrastination starts I think elsewhere and in the world of writing online its a big responsability going over what you have previously written. Words if they are so important and simple enough to be non offensive to readers as well as reducing loss of translation across the board. Words can be very backwards, therefore is little wonder we catch ourselves back peddling.
The forces that be push us into experiencing the frustration of procrastination. And as we put things of and sugar coat things the less gets done.
From an outside perspective we have a helpful birds eye view of things. As writers we also have readers, mainly though ourselves. We come across pictures of Sea of Bones all the time and the temptation is understandably to walk on by, ignore, mind our own business to avoid any confrontation or ridicule. Finding our own voices, oracles and muses is way over the top. To our friends like wolves we howl the one thing we don’t want to do and as experts we seem to be pidgeon holing ourselves with that ‘build a wall’ to fix things mentality.
There is a film with Bruce Willis that explains this a bit better called Unbreakable. The film alone explains the polarity of what’s deemed good and bad in a topic most ignore. The mind is shaped in different ways.
Equally the brain size may have contributed to amazing engineering and architecture thousands of years ago. Special helicopters that no one talks about. Vessels that travelled swiftly over continents. Buildings built on points of earth which had astrological allignments.
All these like writers block, mysteries.
Whether its a big wow, something mundane or things you create yourself we can bet your bottom dollar, somewhere down the line someone or something is pressurising us in some way.
Again writing is solid enough to be written at equal times of conciousness.
The exposure of elements cannot help but contribute to our growth and who’s to say if one glove fits all. Its our duality of conciousness and unconcious that unites us.
And there is where our quest for difference and uniqueness is where the rabbit meets the road. Which raises the question, no matter how much common sense feeds the doubt: are we any better off with coaches and mentors?
The strategy these past few years is customer service. Now they are more interested in overall branding and gaining new clients.
Clients can be readers, listeners, viewers, guests, musicians: bands DJ solo artists, actors or presenters, service representatives, CEO of other media conglomerate companies and various politicians from around the world.
Trust is lost when companies decide to employ new measures on Social Media. Previously short snippets of what a post is was a model that worked. The abuse seems to be click bait. This is when media companies use marketing hooks to make people click and read. Many websites use these posts to make money. The ads supporting these flimsy posts is the main reason why readers, listeners and viewers lose trust.
The new media is always creating new ways of consuming media. Tests are done with regulars to stretch their loyalty. As the metrics from social economics changes so the need for questions though polls happen. If enough of the media companies trusted followers respond they ask them questions about how much are they willing to pay for an ad free service.
Trust already exists with outstanding clients who have supported media agency companies through; the good times and the bad times. Companies with big budgets have an interest in media with an active audience and responsive database.
Third party advertising agencies have suffered from challenging ad blockers. Facebook this week again has adapted to avoid many of these browsing blockers. Facebook is not the only one trying to adapt. Both Google and Bing must be experiencing similar hiccups.
By asking the right questions and employing good media marketing communications skills across the board these problems are quickly sorted out.
Briefing outside the board room to global representatives is the challenge. Online webinars are great of briefing these people in different time zones because the internal message can be distributed and recorded. During communications between managers and employees anything goes wrong in can leave a mess.
Reputation management is the last resort. When complaints from inside the apple cart rumors online can spread like wildfire.
The main way of combating these things is pushing the posts down in search, disavowing posts through contacting the search engines (this can takes three months) , or contacting websites or web 2.0 properties directly.
You’ll then have to try to convince them you have legal representatives and collectors out there to make life difficult for people.
This is why employees are tracked by location on mobile devices and made to sign wafers and adhere to company manifestos. The pressure alone depends upon good leaders who can communicate any new urgent update to the rest of the people in this area from the global network. Good communication skills again really help and fast and practical learning of any new tools that come out to make life easier for you depending on what industry you are in.
Market research online is limited. Bigger companies have the budget to pay for software which cost hundreds of pounds a month. They use at least for of these so unless you have a large team of market researchers around the world it is well out of range for your budget.
The good news is there are websites which gather a lot of this data and for free give enough information everyday for a certain amount of queries. Similarly academic information is available through back doors of academic essays and statistical data. Often this data although three years out of date is relevant in some way to various organisations.
The agencies reputation can be spoiled when one ‘bad apple’ goes public with information. A good example of this is Eddie Snowden who worked for an ad agency in Virginia who were spying on peoples emails.
We know how important these sort of leaks can be by looking at the current political situation. Leaked info about email blast campaigns from top female American politicians take heat for inside agencies strategies.
The companies advisers are always changing suit or helping other organisations. This has filtered down the trust ability factor. As a consequence more and more websites this September 2016 will have to adopt https instead of basic http. PayPal has had to change its terms and conditions. I guessing this might be why the media is making such a song and dance about political statements.
They should always ask themselves what can they do as an organisation to own the problem and resolve the issue as soon as possible.
