I t takes a ton of effort to figure out how to use any social media platform to its full potential, and today we ve got seven major ones to contend with. I hoped that if I wrote a short, useful book one as visually enticing as a Tumblr or Pinterest post that broke today s most popular and exciting platforms down to their essential building blocks of text, image, tone, and link capabilities, it would make the exploding social media scene seem a little less daunting to any marketer or business owner trying to keep up with it. I promise, the investment you make in familiarizing yourself with the ins and outs of these platforms will pay off, now and in the future. The rate at which they change is volatile, but the truth is that most companies and consumers are slower to adapt than they should be. This fact works in your favor. It means that you will have a significant business advantage if you choose to be part of the fraction of marketers who take the time to fully excavate these platforms secrets. And it will be just a fraction. It always is. A member of the Google Analytics team recently informed me that almost no one uses the tracking system properly. Google Analytics has been around for eight years already, more than long enough for marketing departments to know it inside and out. But people s perception is that it s overwhelmingly complicated and vast, so even the best e-commerce companies have not put in the time and effort they should have to figure out how to take advantage of all the available features. There are a few marketers out there who have, though, and the data they access helps them beat their competition every day. They understood that whatever time they invested in learning Google Analytics would not be much compared with the huge returns the knowledge they gained could deliver. Marketers who put in the effort to really understand the nuances and subtleties of the platforms explored in this book can and will dominate. Yes, it will be frustrating when Facebook once again makes changes to its algorithm and newsfeeds, and Twitter and Pinterest will probably make tweaks and redesign. But if you don t give in to the frustration, and do persist in staying alert and figuring out how to use these changes to your advantage, you ll instantly be leagues ahead of most of the marketing pack. Others might huff and puff and eventually catch up, flattening your advantage, but you can make a lot of headway and be extremely effective during the two or three years that you re zooming ahead of the curve. Besides, if you ve made staying ahead of the curve your standard procedure, what difference will it make if they catch up? To paraphrase Jay Z, you ll be on to the next one, probably to figuring out how to storytell on a Google Glass eye screen instead of a mobile phone. And about that time, I ll probably write a new book called Four-Eyed Storytelling or something like that. I have spent 40 years trying to select people for big jobs I have gone through many systems, spoken to many CEOs I decided that Shell had the best system of them all, and the government switched from 40 attributes to three, which they called helicopter qualities What are they? Powers of analysis logical grasp of the facts concentration on the basic points, extracting the principles. You score high marks in mathematics, you have got it. But that is not enough They must have a sense of reality of what is possible. But if you are just realistic, you become pedestrian, plebeian, you will fail. Therefore, you must be able to soar above the reality and say, This is also possible a sense of imagination. 49 Make sure you select a photo that s eye-catching and properly showcases what you re trying to show. The growth of our social media platforms has definitely been organic, says Marketing Coordinator Karmene Hassell. Growing apace with the expanding role of social media in building relationships between industries and customers, Arcadia Ales quickly developed a marketing philosophy for its use. We ve been firm believers that it is better to utilize social media deliberately versus having a presence on all platforms and not using them effectively. Yet there are reasons for the confusion. The two highs are linked. Risk heightens focus and flow follows focus. This means that the fight-or-flight response primes the body chemically and psychologically for the flow state. Athletes report moving through one to get to the other. Danny Way, for example, has a phrase he uses to remind himself of the importance of this transition. Never a glitch on takeoff, he says. He means that when you re teetering between flow and fight-or-flight, all it takes is one errant thought to send you in the wrong direction. When Way pushes off onto the MegaRamp, he has seconds to flip this switch. If he can follow his focus into flow, he lives to ride another day. But if panic swamps the circuitry? The greatest slams of my life took place when that happened, he says. Almost every time, I ve ended up in the hospital.
