what i know about social media

1 May

Let me tell you what I dont know first .

I dont know how to code. I hate that !

I know what social media technologies can do . I also  know what are the tools needed to give you great social media campaigns.

For example : I don’t know how to add the Digg code to my word press blog so that i can get that “digg it” tab by editing HTML.But then I know a lot more about how to use digg to get publicity to  content up and running.I don’t know how to create a widget . Google calls them gadgets. But i do know what widgets a brand would need.

You get the picture , dont you ?

I basically focus on how to build relationships between brands and users and then connect users with other users. consumers and customers .

Please remember : your customer is not necessarily your consumer. figure out how . If not , then ask me here . or get in touch. we can collaborate on the thought.

What i would basically do is find out how to build relationships and use the right tools to execute it .

So, if you are brand manager or a marketeer or webmaster, think about what you are doing. are you building relationships or widget applications.

Nothing wrong about building widgets and applications. It is important . But then figure out where you stand before you get into social media.

Radically changing my blog

1 May

This blog is almost getting  to 9000 hits .

That is 9000 hits in 5 months. I am being approx here. But still the number is big considering the fact that i dont blog great . My grammar is always wrong ( those who know me will know that i hate typing and love writing) and the sentence flow will always go for a toss.

This ought to change.

From now I am going radically change the way I  blog .

Also, I will only blog about econmics , social media and e business, public relations and word of mouth marketing.

I will also share my thoughts on japanese culture, language , literature and anime . I love anything and everything to do with Japan.

But then I may break the rules once in a while.

Thanks to everyone who dropped by to read my blog posts. I know you dint take away much but i am going to do my best to give you knowl-takeaways when you read my blogs from now.
