    @Jim Murray - Great advice here! - I've been told over and over again that 'people buy people' - writing good content, making constructive (although opinionated) comments on other people's post all work - but I find that honesty (and it doesn't necessarily have to be the consensus view) and integrity are also paramount.

    As do passion for your industry / niche or what every rocks your boat - seeking to inform - rather than push a quick sale as you say here :-

    'Communicating that knowledge without any expectation of personal gain is, paradoxically, one of the most effective ways to attract people to you and your business.'

    Since I've started blogging and writing articles (mainly on architecture) I find that the type of clients I attract are more in tune with me. I can't think that's a coincidence...

    My personal agenda is mine and nobody can tell me if I am doing it correctly or not. Also my father told me to never allow anyone to define me, that is my job. So there.

    Yes, there are always agendas. Be that group think, which stinks for those of us who like to be our authentic selves. Because we don't like groups of people telling us how to behave. Why? Because they are phony and we don't like to be phony.

    I did this for 38 years, @Alexa Steele. My trick was to write whatever hadn't been written before. I even made up names or combined two known terms like "vascular hypertrophy." At first glance, it looks absolutely professional. Then you realize that hypertrophy is mostly vascular. Still, making a doctor scotch his/her head is good for business. Appeal to their logic and intelligence. Or just confuse the hell out of them. Confusion sells more than you think. I also like to ask the question: "Why would you buy this?" That's how I came up with the product name "I dunno."

    Hi Gert, very nice praise of Javier. There are two ways in which a leader has impact. The first is the Google Way and the second is the Fearless Leader Way.

    In the Google Way, the culture the leader creates turns the name of his organization into an adjective, so today while Google is actually Alphabet as a company, the word Google has become a mainstay adjective - Google wanted to be known as organizing the world's information and when we individually search for information we say "Oh, just Google that". That is the highest praise a leader can have.

    In the Fearless Leader Way the culture becomes more like a Banana Republic or something that Kim Jong Il would expect, and with Donald Trump he is the classic example of a personal brand that wants to engage his work in a branded way - hence Seth Meyers takes a look at this branded way of doing things as Trump recently went to the ultimate level of actually seeking praise from his cabinet https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jlCFLG6rKKY - so it is that the word "personal brand" will continue to pick up more negative baggage and eventually it is not a cool word to associate with, so at least think Kim Jong or Donald Trump !!!

    So we need a BeBee Way and that way should culminate in beBee becoming an adjective. So one day saying "Develop your beBee" will mean that you have a strong personal and professional reputation or profile online . I can work more on my beBee and because I know what my beBee means I don't have to use extra words like personal or professional to describe it, for my beBee here already contains that ! So the ultimate praise for any leader is when their company becomes an adjective.

    @Gert Scholtz @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee

    Here are two that I find absolutely spot on.

    "Whatever circumstances we have in life, we are still the one controlling its outcome. It is still up to us to lead our life to where we want us to be. Blaming the circumstances and use it to justify our present condition will not help. It will only hinder us to move forward and continue to live our life. Trials and difficulties will always be there to set us off course, but we can handle it if we really have the right attitude in life. So instead of complaining about life being unfair, move on and make the use out of it."

    "Move on instead of complaining."

    Absolutely well said and underscores the essence of a great mind, great leader and great team at beBee with the vision and goals to make a difference one positive step at a time.

    Great Buzz. I like B2P so much more than B2B. It reminds you that while marketing online unless you plan on putting thousands into paid advertising, you marketing is not a numbers game. It is about building relationships. beBee is the perfect platform to this were you can reach anyone and everyone.
    Just like @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee said above, I have never had a Business share my content with others, or give my constructive advice to move me forward, but I have had "people" do this. Every click is a person, we must remember that.

    Apart from a few extra paragraphs at the end and quote Paul, this piece is mostly the article of Amy Sorrells. I think attribution is a very important principle since Sorrell's wrote this piece in the summer of 2013.

    Forget B2B and B2C โ€“ Tech Enables B2P (Business to People) Marketing by Amy Sorrell
    https://blogs.oracle.com/socialspotlight/forget-b2b-and-b2c-tech-enables-b2p-business-to-people-marketing

    Let us give credit where credit is due and in this piece, to link 90% of this back to Amy Sorrell. I have seen reposting of other people's content a lot on LinkedIn and in a recent one, I noted the original author, who it turns out was OK with his writing being copied, but not all people are as generous or welcoming regarding their content. The other value of using an existing piece is in getting permission from the original content writer, because that creates new avenues of partnerships.

    Otherwise I am not a fan of finding content that has not cited the original author. These days I seem to be in the minority with this view, but there is a valuable ethic in this and I personally think attribution is important.

    The principles of business to people also go back a couple of decades because at the heart of the Cluetrain Manifesto is the first principle of its 95 theses - which is "Markets Are Conversation" and it was all about marketers talking in the human voice and people within business being people with voices and not marketing speak.

I am a big fan of lists and carry notebooks around and have them all over the house in strategic places (like in my handbag, by my desk, in my studio etc. etc.) so if inspiration strikes or if I remember something I am supposed to do, I can just jot it down and add it to my to do list, or strategy list later on.

    Great post @John White, MBA. Your posts are always a great piece of resource to refer back to "time and again". You write, "How you approach time is the ultimate driving force to create the best outcomes for your business." For me this is the key. Not only can we benefit from the strategies you provide, we also need to be aware of our relationship with time. You write, "Manage your work, don't let it manage you." Agreed. My bias around time management is that you can't manage time, you need to mange yourself.

    Thanks, John, for another excellent article filled with important insights and astute analysis. Your advice on time management skills is very timely (no pun intended), especially considering the daily information overload business people (and all people) face in today's hyper-paced mobile, digital and virtual Information Age. Thus, learning effective time management skills and techniques appears more important now than ever. Therefore, your terrific tips, if implemented, should contribute to greater employee productivity, less stress and, hopefully, a better work-life balance (integration) from the top down and the bottom up.

    #10 Aleta> "I for one don't point out every little error in every post."

    Does anyone really take seriously barbs from the grammar police or smarmy comments from the spelling brigade? I personally believe that the instances of true trolls are relatively few on beBee and even LinkedIn. And that most of the offense taken and emotional upset registered by authors is over being disagreed with in the first place.

    But Aleta, I grant you that it is not appropriate for anyone to spend significant time commenting only in disagreement on posts by other people. And quite a while ago, I resolved, for example, not to criticize a thesis or idea or statement on someone else's post, but if I felt strongly enough about it being wrong, to write a post of my own. That to eliminate the potential for provocation.

    In this case, my comment was not meant to disagree with Bridgette, but to emphasize something I believe is often overlooked on social media. Cheers!
    Aleta Curry
    23/07/2017 #10 Aleta Curry
    #8 Yes, but Brigette does point our (correctly) that '...not all criticism is a bad thing. There is a difference between constructive criticism and personal attacks.'

    I'd add that not everything needs to be said; I for one don't point out every little error in every post, nor do I comment on *everything* I disagree with. For one thing, it's not a way to win friends and influence people; for another, sometimes a person needs encouragement and a pat on the back and disagreement can wait for a better time.

    It is, however, important to be able to distinguish trollish negativity from legitimate, civil disagreement. For the mind is like a muscle and if you feed it a diet composed solely of sweets and compliments, it will grow fat and soft and unable to do its job. Cheers!

    "Negativity is always all around but itโ€™s important not to let it paralyze us."

    Isn't that the truth, on so many levels. I'm pretty good about letting negative comments roll. Well, I used to be. It seems the older I get, the less patience I have for negative BS from people. 99.9% of it comes from 'cyberpunks' who are shielded by their anonymity. The www has enabled disrespectful people to come out in droves.

    Great buzz.

    #50 Good questions, @Aleta Curry , buzz @beBee and #buzzBeBee are functionally equivalent. They do exactly the same thing. Both trigger tweets on @beBee and its sister Twitter accounts.

    It's pretty rare that a post will qualify immediately. A good idea may be to check the day after and the day after that. If it looks like it's trending to qualify, I'd do the #buzzBeBee thing.

    We filter against duplicates. Those filters aren't perfect but still.

    Here's my problem...okay, scratch that, here's one of my problems (I've got so many).
    1. I don't really know the difference between buzz @beeBee and #beBee, that is, when would I use one rather than the other?
    2. Sometimes (often?) my articles don't qualify for the tags right away, but will in a few days or even a few weeks later.
    3. By the time that happens, I can't remember if I've already 'shared' the Tweet to Buzz or not.
    4. In a similar vein, I often forget to see how my articles are doing and if qualified, share the Tweet to Buzz.

    Every single one of us, even if we pretend it is not so, put our hearts and souls into the words we share on this platform.

    It is inevitable that not every piece of writing resonates for every bee.

    Occasionally, we might give feedback of honest intent, that hurts someone else terribly.

    It is not simply enough to ask for clarification or an apology, we must also be willing to accept one, as well.

    "If you chose to become a beBee advocate, you really need to understand that we are participating in a rather unique and radical global free speech marketplace"

    Here's to always trying to understand how we come across and working to understand what someone means. Having the strength to apologize and the compassion to accept a sincere apology.

    From this place of open-mindedness, we will all succeed, in ways we dream about! Close

    Phrases like "stop acting immature!" Or "When are you are going to grow up?!" are really funny...I can sssure you (as a world renowned expert in Developmental Neuroscience) that with each "tick o' the clock"...(those of who are still alive) have matured (grown up) in accordance with our individual epigenetic trajectory...

    ...the process (defined in fact) as the inevitable increasing probability (stastical "closing in") of our death.

    This is an inescapable truth ; unfortunately when people "yell at you for acting otherwise"... they are engaging in folly...even worse, would be to believe that anyone is telling you such things is saying anything with a basis in reality.

    It's like when someone says: "What's wrong with you; don't you have any "COMMON SENSE?!"...what they really mean (of course) is that they asked you to do something...and you didn't do it the way they would have done it.

    #107 I understand, @Ken Boddie, but though I experience this I don't seem to be as frustrated by it as you are.

    I just skim through quickly when I first browse in to beBee and put articles I want to remember (and those I don't have time to read right then) into my Aleta's Reads hive.

    Of more concern is the fact that I miss so much from my favourites. There's so much coming in now that I get fatigued before I've read through every single title in my feed.

    I have to rely heavily on being 'tagged' by people who've just published something (the reason I happened upon this post, for example). Trouble is, some of my faves simply don't tag people. I feel a little presumptuous doing it myself, but I decided that being thought presumptuous by some was better than having people who are interested in my posts miss them.

    So, I would like to see improvement in the area of being able to follow the posts of certain bees. Don't ask me what that would be; happily, I'm a user here, I'm not at the pointy end!

    I must have missed the tag notifications on this @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee and @stephan metral ๐Ÿ Innovative Brand Ambassador for which I thank you.
    I have invested more than a substantial amount of time, effort, resources and a wee bit of money (my Scotts heritage bubbling to the surface) in 5 digitally based start- ups in here in Australia over the last number of years. All 5 have fizzled or died.

    That's business, that's entrepreneurship.

    I understand the concerns expressed by some in the comments below. I have had my own, and questions, conveyed personally.

    On the basis of this post and communications received, I for one will continue to support the promotion of beBee for the foreseeable future and look forward to the platforms update.

    In the meantime, here are some wise words from some wise ones.
    Innovation opportunities do not come with the tempest but with the rustling of the breeze. Peter Drucker
    Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere. Albert Einstein
    Patience is power. Patience is not an absence of action; rather it is timing; it waits on the right time to act, for the right principles. Fultong J. Sheen
    Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after the other. Walter Elliot
    Leaders keep their eyes on the horizon, not just on the bottom line. Warren Bennis
    The best thinking has been done in solitude. The worst has been done in turmoil. Thomas Edison

    I have been greatly impressed, @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee, by the success of this great platform and cherish the many friends I have found here. I do, however, share some of the concerns of @Dean Owen (as set out in his various comments below) relating to the future. I continue to be frustrated by the increasing amount of time I have to spend trawling through posts with which I have little or no affinity, in order to find those I wish to read and pass comment on, and have tried many ways to limit my feed, but without much lasting success. I voiced my concerns in my posts of September and November last year as follows: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ken-boddie/fellow-bees-we-have-a-traffic-problem; and
    https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ken-boddie/we-know-our-favourite-producers-write-but-do-we-know-our-favourite-producers-right
    From the subsequently received post comments it appears that many others are also having difficulty with their feeds and consequently are also missing posts from their favourite bees (Fbees). We were then, back in September, promised a great conceptual solution which you called the STING, but there has been very little more to come on this subject since, and the repeated promises of major change continue without fruition. Your above enthusiastic explanation is gratefully received, but perhaps this would be an apt time to reinforce, to your many devotees, a commitment to including the STING at the earliest possible opportunity? ๐Ÿค”

    @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee - As far back as our first Skype conversation, I have had no doubt that beBee will succeed in growing the platform. I am excited to see the new updates - but understand that it takes time to cultivate and grow any business with many peaks and valleys. I love how you keep us all included!

    Enjoy Namibia my friend. We are but a few travel writers in a sea of marketers so we are critical to helping the beBee feed attract your typical internet user who are simply here to enjoy and communicate. Writers and storytellers like you and the delectable Ken Boddie are precious and I will follow you both until the ink runs dry.

    #103 i would love to if I was certain beBee would still be around many years from now. I fear they have, and are making some major strategic blunders by focusing on building a platform with the content provider in mind where they need to focus on what your typical internet user needs and wants to see. I don't want to wake up some day and find my writings have dissapeared because the plug has been pulled. I need to feel confident that my articles will be there for my children to read many years from now. I hope they prove me wrong. I need beBee to succeed. As such, I sent them an email detailing all my concerns yesterday, but it seems to have fallen on deaf ears.....

    @Flavio ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต Souza ๐Ÿ Irreverent and enjoyable Flavio! And here is one more from Africa: A lion is capable of capturing, killing, and eating a field mouse. But the energy required to do so exceeds the caloric content of the mouse itself. So a lion that spends its day hunting and eating field mice would slowly starve to death. A lion can't live on field mice. A lion needs antelope. Antelope are big animals. They take more speed and strength to capture and kill, but once killed, they provide a feast for the lion and her pride. So ask yourself: 'Do I spend today chasing mice or hunting antelope?

    It's only saying that LinkedIn is scared of the truth that follows from looking at the data about its influencers.
    It's data that says that many writers - who are NOT LinkedIn influencers - are engaging, instructing and probably helping more people than nearly all ofย their influencers.
    I've looked very hard at this data - which tells us about how many people like and even more importantly comment and probably even more importantly share the posts of those who aren't LinkedIn influencers.ย (And I've done the same with the Influencers as well)

    Hi Matt,

    As a newbie with only two weeks on beBee, I have come to the same conclusion. I have done the same experiment on both platforms (both buzz/updates and producer/articles). Same result.

    As you, I also have much more followers on LinkedIn (4 times).

    So I think this bodes well for beBee. Keep the honey flowing.

    One thing I thrived on was LinkedIn's detailed analytics which is no longer available. I could tell what kind of audience I was reaching and viewed it often. Now I have to simply luck out and get a like from one of my target audience which is not readily forthcoming. Comments are key to who is viewing your posts now. BeBee interactors are generous with their comments, unlike LI.

    #24 I have to agree @Aleta Curry, if someone is called out in a group format, whether it's in front of others at work or on an email and the person who berated 'said person' was wrong, they do need to apologize to the entire group. This is where cliques form or people lose trust. An easy example, when my kids were growing up, I would occasionally call out one of my kids in front of the other. There were times I was wrong, *gasp* and I made sure to apologize to both of them because I knew it affected not only my child I chastised but my other child who was present. I hope that made sense.

    For me personally, I refuse to sqaubble with others on beBee or any platform for that matter. I stay away from heated topics because that's just my preference. Those who choose to join a heated topic they do need to remember things can get out of control fast, if even just one person begins to attack.. others may come to defend and many feelings can get hurt. I love your suggestions because those are great steps to follow in order to avoid confrontation with another.

    I really try hard to choose my words wisely and I would never want to hurt anyone on here. Everyone has feelings and these are good rules to follow with life in general and on the job.

    Comment 1

    Thanks for wishing me a Happy Saturday, Sandra, though it's already Sunday afternoon Down Under; I couldn't get to reading earlier.

    I agree with everything except the part about cc/reply to all. If someone has insulted me in public (and it hasn't happened here, thank goodness) they owe me (or you, or Joe Bloggs) a public apology. That is not to make them lose face, it is so that the matter gets proper closure. That's directly taken from Management Training, every good boss should know that berating someone in public and then pulling them aside later and saying 'I'm sorry about that' is weaselly. That manager is simply afraid of losing face and may not be at all sorry.

    Not that they have to flagellate themselves publicly shouting mea culpa mea maxima culpa over the loudspeaker, but they can simply say at the next meeting or around the water cooler, 'I just want to say that I was wrong in...or I apologise to Aleta for...I've said this to her privately, but I wanted to say it in front of all of you.' Then move on to the next next item in the Agenda or lunch or whatever, no song and dance, and Aleta doesn't get the right of rebuttal and there should be no commenting from the rest of the group unless the situation was so horrible that that has to occur, in which case you need a session with a counsellor.
    Aleta Curry
    26/03/2017 #23 Aleta Curry
    Cont'd from Comment 1

    In the same vein, I think it's wrong to cc people *if they were not part of the original communication*. If they were, however, and you want to say one thing to all of them, they're quite within their rights to 'reply all', otherwise you're being unjust and horribly unfair to the party of the first part.

    I do agree that a better way would be for whoever is in charge to step in and say that this is not the way things are done (making it clear that s/he means the original nasty comments) and instructing the jury to disregard the remarks) Which is of course much the same thing as telling a classroom of children to think of anything except rainbows and lollipops, but there you have it. So what am I talking about?

    The jury will please disregard Mrs Curry's remarks.

But here one can get away with a lot as opposed to the real world:) The same care/etiquette/civility we exercise while differing in opinion or a POV ought to be exercised here too, in all conversations. Think the person you are responding (not reacting to) is right in front of you and then talk. Even if it is the President himself ;) It is easy being heroic sitting some thousands of miles away from the object of ridicule in a cosy chair behind a PC...but would one do the same face to face, like say in the Trump arena? ;) Everyone likes to be heard. Everyone likes to hear something different (a different POV need not be a disagreement or negativity); said with regard and respect, even camaraderie (depending on the kind of connect already established). beBee cannot become a battleground for old foes from the Atlantis. Ignore-Block-Report-Ban is a good progression. beBee is a fresh start...and a new beginning!

    News is filtered, produced, sanitized and delivered based on Agenda. That you are not hearing of the attacks, violence, murder, rioting, looting, rapes and kidnappings - doesn't mean they are not happening - it just means that the game the handlers are playing want you dumb, culled and complacent to what is going on. Information is a weapon - the 'news' is at best a confetti gun & cheap bullhorn. Signed from a conflict you wont hear about on the 'news' for another year - with an ever growing body count.

    @Milos Djukic @๐Ÿ Fatima G. Williams @Lisa ๐Ÿ Gallagher @John White, MBA @Lance ๐Ÿ Scoular are five of the most gracious and giving bees on this platform, or any other one. They are always sharing and kindly commenting on the content of others without being prompted. This is the "attitude of gratitude" that helps make this such an amazing platform. Of course, there are many others to name, but you can only tag five bees in one comment. Thanks to ALL!

    #3 I should let you know, Fatima, that beBee is a rather engaged and intelligent community. Posting spam links in the comment thread might seem like a really good way to spread your content and generate leads but it won't actually help your business. Let me explain why.

    First of all, the link is posted out of context.
    Secondly, the long tail title within the link is spammy and most people will ignore it. Remember, beBee is full of intelligent and thoughtful members who are all over the age of 14.
    Thirdly, content marketing is all about presenting people with quality content and then trying to engage with them. That link simply won't do.
    Fourthly, by posting spam, you undermine your own credibility as a business person. Trust is an essential component for any sale. While you may be very trustworthy and honest, this kind of link and the fact that you are spamming comment fields will cause people to question your credibility. Even if someone clicks on it out of curiosity, they likely won't buy.

    Excellent post! I would like to add the benefits of offering live videos (these can be part of the learning process) in order to increase engagement between instructor and learner / student, answer questions and discuss comments in real time. The students will feel more involved in the learning process and the instructor can customize the topic even more. I am a huge promoter of live video and I always include this component in all my coaching programs with excellent results.
