WHY Are You Doing That?

feauturing speaker Nigel Clayton

Understanding “WHY” you are doing what you are doing in business was really not something that was talked about 20-25 years ago. You just “did it!”

But now we are talking about your “WHY.” There are books about it and many, many people are talking about it. Why?

Because understanding “WHY” you are doing what you are doing can be the MOST POWERFUL THING you have to create the business and the life you really want.

But most people that say they have figured out their why, really have not.

Most people go to the wrong place to figure it out.

Most people say what they are thinking their why is.

Come and hear a “Little diddy” about how to find your why and how you know you have it.

No Generic Holiday Greetings Here! How to Master Fearless Branding.

Remember 2011 when all the talk was about the "War on Christmas?"
Merry Christmas from Social Savvy Geek

While using the word "war," when not discussing military operations, is nearly always hyperbole, there was a brouhaha about places of businesses banning their employees from saying "Merry Christmas" and forcing everyone to instead say "Happy Holidays." Prior to much ado being made of employee greetings and salutations, most businesses left it up to their employees to choose their own expressions. Afterward, most businesses came down on one side or the other, either encouraging workers to say "Happy Chanukah" and "Merry Christmas" or to ban any mention of religion, whatsoever and go with the generic "Happy Holidays."

Customer experience should not be by accident.

​Honestly, a customer or client's total experience includes how they are greeted and treated right up to goodbye... and it matters. Whether you're conducting business online or in person, it's smart to have policies that address employee language and communications and they should cover appropriate holiday protocol. Close attention is paid to environmental factors, such as store colors, signage, cleanliness, displays, employee uniforms, or website, colors, advertising, etc. If the look and feel you've been carefully cultivating don't match the spoken or displayed words and attitude, then it's a branding mismatch that will make people feel like something is a bit... off.

That all sounds carefully planned, so where does the fearless part come in?

Here's the crux of branding and it holds just as true for season's greetings as for any other part of your marketing. It's pretty simple, really. Be yourself. Decide who you are and be that. You don't have to, nor could you even if you tried, please everyone. Who you are, and your business as an extension of yourself, will attract some people and repel others; that's simply how it works. Own it. Enjoy it. Revel in it! 

Here's a secret: If you choose to play it safe and appeal to a wide, generic audience, then people won't feel a strong connection with your brand. Period. Generic inspires no one. 
Let people in... and they may surprise you with their enthusiasm and loyalty.

Where you draw the line is entirely up to you... and you don't have to open up all at once. A little bit of openness, transparency, authenticity, vulnerability or whatever you've got- goes a long way. I'm fairly certain that my sense of humor comes across in my snarky writing style, but I can definitely do better about expressing how very much I care about my clients success in my writing. I am certain that people who have met me face to face know anything and everything that they ever wanted to know (and possibly a bit more)about me, my life, my passions, and my "whys" but I don't really "put it all out there" much here on my blog. I apologize for that and promise to do better.

Following my own advice, here is a bit of me for you...

When I say to you, "Merry Christmas!" I am expressing MY joy at the upcoming holiday, that I cherish, and am inviting you to participate in that joy. If you are not Christian, then you are welcome to politely say, "Thank you" or "Happy Holidays" or whatever comes to mind, but please don't be offended that I'm sharing a bit of myself with you. I'm not asking you to convert; I'm simply expressing my wish that you have a Merry Christmas- this does not require you to adopt my beliefs. I have often celebrated Chanukah, joyfully and thankfully, with my Jewish friends when invited to do so. I don't care if they wish me a Happy Christmas or Happy Chanukah- I'm just glad to be remembered and included. I don't expect an avowed atheist to wish me a Merry Christmas, but please don't be a downer for those of us who are celebrating. Keep in mind also, that when I wish you a Merry Christmas, and I will, that I am expressing my appreciation of you as a human being and telling you that I love you. You read that right. We are commanded to "love thy neighbor as thyself" and that means everyone. No matter what.

That is all! So, Merry Christmas, from me to you. I wish you a joyous holiday season.

The Best In Online Marketing Can’t Save You If You’re Focused On The Wrong Things

blab logo

Are you using the newest and best marketing tools?

I've seen a plethora of articles coming down the pipe in the past couple of weeks predicting trends and tactics that will dominate 2016. It's no surprise, really, because it happens that way every year. I may even indulge in that type of writing from time to time... but this isn't that post. 

People ask me all the time which social networks they should be on and which platform is best for their business. My answer is nearly always, "Well, that depends." I don't say that to be vague or cliche, but because each situation is unique, and while there are many commonalities and similarities among businesses within each industry, the whole point of being in business is to do what you do your way. If all you were going to do is exactly the same thing that every other business in town is already doing, then why bother?

Bearing that in mind...

There are a few things that are vital to the success of your business and your marketing and they have absolutely nothing to do with being the first on a new social media platform. Does it really matter if you are "doing social media" if you don't know who you are or what you want from your business? Um, nope. Not so much because I'm not buying and neither is anyone else.

Does it really matter if you are "doing social media" if you don't know who you are or what you want from your business?

Click to Tweet

It's a common mistake.

Woman looking stressed at her desk, close up

I don't pretend to be immune; I have fallen victim to trying to "normalize" my business in the past. By that I simply mean that I have taken some bad advice, from time to time, where a business coach or mentor has tried to make me and my company into something that I'm not and we won't be. I really don't care what other digital marketing agencies are doing. Just because some people are doing things a certain way, does not mean that's the way it must be done. There is more than one "correct" answer. So, while the advice was well intended and would have taken my business to a certain point... it wasn't the direction that I wanted to go. I was out of alignment, chasing someone else's idea, and ultimately I realized that wasn't for me and got back to the business of being myself. 

I am all in favor of best practices and using methods and tactics that are cost effective and produce your desired results. I am in no way suggesting that which online marketing avenues you choose is irrelevant. My point is that the focus of your marketing plan should be on who you are and what objectives you are trying to achieve and not on how to use the newest social media tool to boost your brand. Once you have your foundational items handled, then it's game on!

At Social Savvy Geek, we are taking the last couple of weeks of the year to rework our business and marketing plan for 2016. If you need a marketing plan for your business, you're welcome to the template we use for ourselves. I'm feeling generous, what with it being Chanukah and with Christmas fast approaching... it's our gift to you (make sure to take us up on it before the end of the year!)

Get Your Complete Guide on How to Create an App that Rocks the App Store Today

Creating an App Can Be Overwhelming

Have you ever had a great idea for an app and wanted to develop it yourself, but had no idea where to get started? A likely first step is to poke around on Google searching for information that would make your project feasible. Could you do it? Should you?

It's fairly easy to find some high level information, like this list of steps over at Forbes, but unless you're planning on outsourcing the project there isn't much in the way of a comprehensive, step by step practical guide that will walk you through how to complete each phase of the process (and there are quite a few!) I don't know about you, but I find that quite frustrating! Before you know it, you're fallen down a rabbit hole trying to piece together how to do each task.

Stav Zilbershtein, Co Founder & Product manager at Sell My App, has finally done us a favor by creating a real, in depth guide on how to create an app.

When asked why he created this guide, filled with a truly astonishing amount of practical, applicable information he said: 

When I was browsing the web to see what's out there to help people create apps, I realised that for beginners or intermediate indie developers it's more about spending many hours on Google curating posts about different steps of the process, piecing them together, and then slowly digesting them. I also noticed that the various "guides" that were available all offered flat insights that are being chewed over again and again. That was the point where I realised there was an opportunity to correct this by creating a full and genuine guide...and so far the feedback we get we really feel it makes a difference.

Stav Zilbershstein 
Co-Founder SellMyApp

This guide is a no fluff document.

​I'm busy. You're busy. I'm a practical, pragmatic person. I don't appreciate people wasting my time with veiled sales pitches or guides that don't actually, well... guide.

This fantastic work includes case studies of niche and well-known apps, quotes from successful app developers, founders and experts from whom to learn, strategic guidance, tactical advice, facts & stats, and tips & tricks… it really is everything you need to know. We, at Social Savvy Geek, believe that this would be a valuable resource for anyone who is considering developing an app.

There's so much useful content presented here that it could easily become overwhelming; this thing is a beast! But, it is so well formatted and arranged that it's easy to follow and to find any specific information. I agree with the author about his value statement for his guide:

This guide is creating a longterm relationship with the readers. No matter where you are on your app journey, you can always come back and find more useful resources, tools and inspiration. I think this alone gives it its high value. It's not a typical flat guide that teaches you some terms like 'interstitial ads' or 'cpi' that will send you back to google looking for more information about these terms; it's a complete guide that will explain all you need to know about any aspect of the journey and will quote and cite a handful of resources on each given subject to diversify your views on it. To wrap it all up the guide itself is 85 pages! If I were to hand it to you, as a written text book or a PDF, you wouldn't be able to digest it quickly and here comes the design part: we have created this detailed, sharp design to make such a "heavy" piece of content light and digestible for anyone.

Free, freemium, or paid: this guide will teach you everything you need to know to make your app a success. https://goo.gl/P92cT6
