Myth No. 6: Social is a significant factor when driving revenue.

Leonard Waks's curator insight, December 15, 2014 8:02 PM

OK. We're all social now - even us introverts! Not surprising then that a lot of 'myths' are floating around. And then, exploding 'myths' is a favorite kind of 'content'. 

 

So along comes this article to explode our myths about social. Who knew that you didn't have to respond to every comment, or hit every single social channel, or nudge your 'evangelists' to bug everyone by talking up your 'brand' at every turn. 

 

Well so much for those myths - now you know.

Generation C: The Nine Spheres of Social Media Influence

Generation C: The Nine Spheres of Social Media Influence | Social Media & Technology in the Church | Scoop.it

At first glance, after two decades, the utopian dream of the World Wide Web and social media maybe seems to be over. Big Brother returns to haunt our memories, and threaten our digital identity. Information overload and the maelstrom of new technologies confront us with a form of ¨Content Shock¨ and ¨Digital Darwinism,¨ where everything is moving too fast for us.

 

However, looking as the other side of the coin, the new digital ecosystem is perhaps not so bad he looks. Beyond this ¨Orwellian Dystopia¨, new technologies and social media provide us with the means to better fulfill us and make us better as individuals and consumers.

 

Today, thanks to new technologies, we can exercise together and individually, an undeniable power over brands and organizations. Tremendous power of influence, we could not even suspect there is still a few years, and now extends to many aspects of our existence.

 

This is the great power of influence of ¨prosumers¨; connected consumers of what we call now the new Generation C, baby boomers generation Z....

Hello, My Name Is Church

Hello, My Name Is Church | Social Media & Technology in the Church | Scoop.it
Hello my name is church, I'm sure you've heard a lot about me. I have no shortage of critics. Perhaps you have heard that I am... boring, shallow, cheap, a waste of time...
Training For The Kingdom's insight:

This article doesn't have anything to do with Social Media or Technology but EVERYTHING to do with the Church!  Wonderfully written, honest and compelling call to come back to church; come back to corporate worship. 

 

Hebrews 10:25  not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as ye see the Day approaching.

How to Maximize Content with Visual Marketing

How to Maximize Content with Visual Marketing | Social Media & Technology in the Church | Scoop.it

Creating the perfect social media post maximizes your great content by reaching more people. Using graphics to tell the your story is the current trend in social media. This is what I call “visual marketing” and it was spurred in part because of the success of Pinterest and Instagram. On these services a photo is often the first, and sometimes only, interaction with readers, and this changes everything.


Pinterest and Instagram set the standard for content marketers and social media managers to create good — if not awesome — visual content that tells a story. You want to create posts that are eye-catching and shareworthy....

Training For The Kingdom's insight:

Wonderful Quick read full of reminder insight!  Whether you are trying to start a "side hustle", you want to increase in wisdom and influence in what you are already doing this is a good read.  Pastors and Ministers especially, we get bogged down with doing so many "good" things but are they the "best" thing or more importantly the "God" thing we should be focusing our attention on at that time?  Many have books in their bossom given by God, but allow the mundane tasks or the needs of others to wipe out their "quiet" time to begin!  These are quick easy steps toward time management and prioritizing our focus which enable us to fulfill the different individual calls on our lives.  It only takes a few minutes . . . take a look.
