Who Else is a Female, in or Thinking of Being in, Their Own Business?

I have been aware lately of many Women oriented events , appearing mainly on Facebook and was pleasantly surprised to come across this Magazine. It’s different and worth a good read … and, ladies why not write something for it? …  AND being a Coach / Mentor I like what they  say:

“This magazine is for the go-getters, for the ones who believe, for the ones who dare and the ones who succeed!

Systems before service

I keep toying with the idea of getting a web site where people can vote for (against) companies who put systems ahead of service.AYGTCYD Pen with assessment iStock_000017409075XSmall

Is Robert Cialdini socially influential?

I am currently re-reading Robert Cialdini’s ‘InfluenceThe Psychology of Persuasion’, in which he writes about 6 principles:

  • consistency

  • reciprocation

  • social proof

  • authority

  • liking

  • scarcity


I wonder how the model he describes exists within Social Media. Has it evolved into something else? It just got me thinking how these principles apply now- a-daze and

these are just my thoughts



Consistency


Consistency has 2 facets in Social Media:
Consistency of timing and consistency of content

Consistently posting on time is important but what you post needs to be varied or Random (the problem with that word is it’s popular use to mean something else). This holds true of any relationship: physical, personal, transactional, etc.

If you consistently post the same material, interest in you will wane and your influence with it.  Much the same if what you audibly say becomes predictable people will loose interest and you stand the risk of becoming known as a “Cracked record” – “always going on about …”, “'… blah blah blah …”

If you are posting, daily, weekly, monthly or at any other fixed period of time try not to miss your slot because when blog readers stop reading our blog or page, they tend to not come back.

Reciprocation


Hey! You like me, I like you!
I follow you, you follow me!
