Never Eat Alone Author Keith Ferrazzi doing social media right by listening

With excitement, pride and a dose of fear I’ve begun our campaign to help Keith Ferrazzi move into the realm of social media.  Keith is a respected thought leader in relationship development.  He writes and speaks passionately about relationships that are formed out of being vulnerable and generous.  At the moment, though, we are just beginning to breath a listening, transparent presence into what and who Keith Ferrazzi is online.

When I spoke with  Keith and Tahl Raz about it they were concerned, saying, “We want to do it right, our ideology is in absolute alignment, sociologically, and, we’re about to launch this book – as life changing a book as Never Eat Alone was…, ” And, it’s not a self-help book.  It’s a learn-how-to-let-others-help book.”

Keith and the Ferrazzi brand are online in all forms of media.  He’s well published, written about and often featured by major media like CNN and CNBC.  It’s just that his audience is not, largely being listened and responded to online.  Keith and the Ferrazzi team are not listening they way they feel they should.  And, together, we’re determined to change  – fast.  We welcome advice and participation.

The University of Phoenix has agreed to sponsor a “Who’s Got Your Back,” Road Show. I’ had never heard of something like this – but as a “giveback” to his followers and fans, Keith is delivering his 9-step program for building the ultimate team-based success strategy, complimentary to the public.  Take a look at this video of Keith’s explanation of what he and book are offering:

Basic Social Media Tool Flow

Bringing Social Media Path to life has come with some interesting challenges – like my plugin breaking on the “classes” page in Internet Explorer.  Despite the challenges in ramping up to site launch, much of my thinking has been focused around what and how to teach in our upcoming webinars. The bit-more-than-basic-how-to class “Social Media Fast Start” is an opportunity to enable beginners on a path of knowing their customers better.  As the desire of business to market through connecting and sharing online grows, likewise does the confusion and feeling of being overwhelmed.

So, my mantra through course development continues to be, “How can I make online marketing and community development easier to do and to manage?”

I developed this model, which I’ll be discussing in detail in class. I’m interested in any csocial-media-path-social-media-tool-flowomments.  I realize there can be an unlimited number of complex interactions between tools, platforms and technologies.  That’s what makes it the web right?  I left widgets and applications off the model in consideration of my prospective class audience.  I’m sure there are more tools that are not occurring to me.  Care to add something?

Social Media Club: Government 2.0

Yesterday the Sacramento Chapter of Social Media Club held an exception panel discussion on Government 2.0.  There were many insights around what government at the Federal and State levels are doing to embrace and manage initiatives.  The move from use of the web as an archive and distribution medium to one of communication and listening is enormously impactful.

Who we are as a governed people, and what kind of government we have has the potential to be back in our hands.  Caution: Beware those that will attempt to manipulate law and policy to get in the way of this happening.

The Social Media Club’s panel discussion was recorded live.

Panelist Bios are on the Press Release at SacStarts.

Disclosure: I (Jeff Marmins) am the intro speaker on the subject of transparency.

Folsom Lake Crossing Human Chain of Gratitude

It will come as no surprise that when Julie Bjorgum introduced her idea to demonstrate gratitude  – I jumped. We have a new bridge opening in Folsom, CA.  It's a rare event -and has become an opportunity to express gratitude and thanks.  970 feet of bridge joining communities together.

Show your “gratitude attitude” by joining the Human Chain of
Gratitude
stretching across the Folsom L
ake Crossing during the Grand Opening Festival on Saturday,
March 28 at 12:00.

DETAILS on Eventbrite or Facebook  

What would it be like if we all gave up and believed in
hopelessness, doom, despair?  Great
things are accomplished because despite the odds, there were people who tried,
people who believed in the possible, who weren’t afraid to fail if it furthered
the greater good.  We are humbled by our
present circumstances, but that does not make us losers.  Our society does not support the idea of
coming in 2nd, but I believe it is by our efforts that we are all
winners.  Folsom’s newest bridge next to
Folsom Dam is certainly an inspiring example of seemingly insurmountable odds
made possible by hard work,Gratitude folsom lake bridge grand opening folsom lake corssing human chain commitment and positive thinking.  We pay tribute to all who made it a reality.

 I am grateful that a smile is more contagious than a
disease.

What are you grateful for?

Author; Julie Bjorgum

We'll be making a cool video to be shared publicly.


Come show your gratitude!

 

Love. Enlightenment. Plenty.

Pittsburgh Steelers Achieve Victory With Heart

 Character, selflessness and focus
are the reasons
that the Pittsburgh Steelers are Super Bowl Champions. 
Steelers Super Bowl XLIII super-bowl-trophy

Coach Tomlin:

“…The standard is the standard. We don’t choose to point fingers. We
stay humble in times of excellence, and achievements individually are part of a team. By the same token we don’t point the fingers as members of the team. The issue has been, is and hopefully will continue to be winning in this game indefinitely for the Pittsburgh Steelers. That’s where the focus is. We care less how others may judge portions of our football team or portions of our football game and are more concerned about the final outcome, which is having one more point than our opponent…”
