    β€ͺIn the late 40s and 50s we transitioned from radios to TV, and radios list a huge market share.

    Now we are transitioning from TV to mobile devices. This is huge for all marketers.

    Direct mail, email marketing, is going away more and more. Facebook right now is the best place for marketing. Listen to Garyy Vaynerchuck who has an incredible track record of success in marketing and branding.

    Two key take always: Facebook Video Ads & Incluencer marketing. Take a listen to @garyvee podcast on "What's next?"

    Hi Guys,

    I have no idea why the article was censored and if you read it yourself you will see that it was in no way overly promotional. What saddened me was the fact that the article was removed and my access to the platform revoked without explanation or warning.

    However I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone on beBee for their encouragement and support. John White, MBA, Javier 🐝 beBee and Matt 🐝 Sweetwood. I thank you for reaching out. To Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, Paul "Pablo" Croubalian, David B. Grinberg, thanks for the encouraging words and all the shares.

    Like Matt told me, everything happens for a reason so now it's time to focus forward. Let's continue to share the good news about beBee! Virtual Hugs to everyone!

    #10 If a society has built itself on economic dependencies and in serving consumers created an unintended learned helplessness, then when we layer personal brand on that, we are layering that brand-you on a host and then we become the parasites.

    The net result of that is the term " a consumable society".

    In order to get to that kind of consuming society the industrial age took away the sophisticated relationships of home and replaced them with the command and control of work and media that is built around serving work and not the home. If it serves home it is often an antidote or a restbite from work, but then mass advertising is the greatest of parasites, feeding on consumers.

    So how do we move away from a life consumed to a life that is very much alive. Ultimately argument is simply a fight for those who are having to fight in this system - but abstraction is not necessarily an argument. As people succeed the level they rise in society is dependent on them having powers of abstraction and the kind of arguments we talk of as "abstract' are simply concrete people talking in languages we do not know or understand.

    So we assume these concrete people know better than us and that abstract people are dangerous to us. Of course they are because they are innovating and creating new realities while our consumption is based on conformity, and the certainty that comes from command and control.

    That is why I go back to Water - because all of this can become very abstract really fast and so we refresh ourselves by going back to our fundamental core - that we are largely water and also 90% of our being is not even human, it is organic and microbial, but that is another story unto itself :-)

    Messing with the forces of nature and sometimes messing with our own mind and the mind of the other. Influencing and controlling and so on.

    To get lost in abstract arguments and get lost to whats going on inside your head.
    Learning how to think really means how to exercise control on how and Why you think
    Its means being conscious and aware enough to choose to what you pay attention to and to choose how you construct meaning from experience.
    Because if you cannot exercise such kind-of choice in adult life you will be totally host - David Foster

    People are used as a Host for various reasons by people , managers , politicians and even their own friends. Awareness is the key to stay conscious and alive.

    A mind awakening buzz @CityVP 🐝 Manjit Thank you

    "If we mess with water, we mess with life. If embrace water as life then we can find the hidden within us without need of philosophies, religion, marketing or all that commands our attention" I embrace these lines for the rest of my learning journey !

    #8 I have to throw in a caveat regarding that experience, while the Dark Mirror reality does exist, one also has to ask whether the small screen has led to more travel for younger people or less, and the answer coming back from the travel industry is that millennials travel about 20% more than older generations - then it comes down to what kind of information is being accessed - and whether that is shaping a society withdrawn from the world (which is dark mirror) or new generations exploring the world - and the evidence points to young people wanting to know more. Indeed young people voted to stay in Europe but older generations swayed the vote to Brexit. Millennial's were indifferent to the two boomer candidates who were both 40 years+ older than them, but the millennial vote did tip towards Clinton. If anything the digital experience of older generations is what is most at question.

    Very thought provoking and core material, written only as you can @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. I am driven back to our pre-marketing state of being; our primordial state when and where we were a part of nature. Then, we branched/evolved into creators and things changed. It never ceased to amaze me when I would hear people look at a view in nature and exclaim, "It's as beautiful as a painting!" Fast forward to now when we are so busy videotaping an event/experience, seeing it through the little screen instead of being in it, live, in the moment. We no longer know who we are, unless we see it advertised. We search for brands and we are advised to brand ourselves. For me, the water connection is just that; our connection. It is a source of life and we have a reciprocal relationship with it. It is internal and external, it is in us and we are in it. I echo David Foster Wallace, awareness, being aware, is key. Thanks Manjit, for bringing so much to our awareness.

    #5 Dear @Ali Anani I don't need to distinguish the marketer but the marketed. I am the marketed and what I must distinguish is the professional. I want to put the marketer in his rightful place which is in the role of servant leader and not the marketer to be in the position of master and me being his conditioned slave. This buzz is about turning this relationship on its head.

    In so doing I begin to see what the prior marketer master, the human capital slave owner, the project manager Nazi would not - that professions cannot continue to be these islands of competing parasites on the organizational and social body - now see the employees and customers who they serve, because then employees and customers are the same thing again - which is what?

    Employees and Customers are people - and if I am "people" now I am in a position to be served by all these professions and not be a professional drone or a corporate slave to their competing professed priorities. This establishes in professional circles the role of the professional as a servant leader, and in that role, the servant leader helps rather than subverts the managerial hierarchy.

    If I am the water of life, don't muddy this water with professional viewpoints - and if now the responsibility of the professions is to educate rather than sell their profession, I have a greater responsibility to listen. I can listen because in my world the battle for my attention is over. I am watching the marketing machine, I am watching the human resource capitalist - and I am now a person.

    Part 2/
    In my previous buzz on "More on Balancing Acts"
    https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/more-on-balancing-acts
    I mentioned the need for forces to act in synchronicity or better to be fused as one force. Looking forward and outward is just another great example of what I meant. It is not enough to look inward or outward; far better if they work in synchronicity or amalgamate together to give an alloy of a new force. WE NEED BOTH. We can't ignore what happens outside our domains for they influence us.
    As for marketers they may know their customers more than their customers know themselves or what they deem unnecessary. Marketing and creativity go a long way in probing these possibilities.
    Yes, we humans are mostly water. It is us who contaminate this water with tangible and intangible contaminants and make us sick. The marketers pride the medicine or sometimes delude us into a drug that is not. Here, we need to distinguish between "Honest Marketing" and "Dishonest Marketing". This situation is like a lawyer defending a legal case or an illegal one. I raise my hat to honesty.

    #1 #2 #3 -Dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit- you kept silent for few days to write such a "sounding" buzz. I enjoyed reading it thorughly and equally reading the comments of dear @David B. Grinberg. I have my own thoughts.
    First, just in case a reader wishes to read my buzz mentioned in your buzz here is the link.
    https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/the-hidden-marketing-forces

    SOcrates said to know yourself. More often than not fail fail to identify themselves or pass unnoticed some of their talents, strengths and weaknesses. I give one example, dear @debasish majumderwrote a buzz in which I sensed his talent in writing poetry. Debabish responded with a poem and now his authority in writing poetry is beyond questions.
    CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    21/02/2017 #3 CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    #2 Dear David [ @David B. Grinberg ] Looking outward is the whole point. In a world of massive attention and the meme of trying to attract followers, the default mode is that we are looking outwards into that attention. Then we never have time to look inwards, because we have no bandwidth for it.

    Now if I don't worry about followers and know the purposes of advertising, media, news and every human being vying for our attention - then and only then when I have side-stepped all that, am I truly looking outwards - and in looking outwards, I have an uninterrupted opportunity to look inward. This divergence and convergence cannot be separated - this is why I am so omnipresent here at bebee. I am doing this :-)
    David B. Grinberg
    21/02/2017 #2 David B. Grinberg
    (Part 2 of 2)

    3) While I agree that it's important to look inward, I also think there is substantial merit to looking outward -- albeit in the correct way. Exploration, learning and discovery, as you note, can facilitate finding the true "meaning of life" on an individual and societal bases. You probably know where I'm going with this.
    4) Space exploration and environmental science. Space is where we can discover the the co-called "known unknowns" as well as the "unknown unknowns." That's at least one larger part of where the ultimate answers lie IMHO. Moreover, regarding Earth's vast oceans, there is still so much scientists DON'T know. Some parts on the ocean are too deep to probe, even via robots -- like the Marianas Trench (the deepest part of the Earth's oceans). But even above that, humans have not explored every inch of the oceans or what lies beneath toward the Earth's molten core. So yes, look inwards for wisdom, by all means. But also look outwards into space and our natural surroundings.
    David B. Grinberg
    21/02/2017 #1 David B. Grinberg
    (Part 1 of 2) Thank you @CityVP 🐝 Manjit for another brilliant buzz. I appreciate how you frame the concepts as to open our collective minds to think differently and be enlightened. Ditto that for @Ali Anani @Sara Jacobovici @Milos Djukic and others whose writing has the beneficial impact of looking beyond the superficial, or "cracking open the egg" so to speak. Just a few thoughts:
    1) To state the obvious, marketing is a byproduct of a capitalist society in which market forces drive so much of life. We automatically conditioned to conform from birth onward. Thus, marketing should be directly tied to capital and the "American Dream" of becoming super rich.
    2) I love water, literally. How much? Well without revealing my monthly Deer Park Water bill, I will say that I receive about a dozen cases of water per month. Yes, I drink a lot of water. H2o comprises most of our bodies and most of the Earth via oceans. We all know that water is fundamentally intrinsic to life as we know it.

    You really nailed this buzz, Jeremy! The fact is that Javier cares about the company he is building so much so, he is invested in spending each day making sure that the bees are content and checking out what is happening in the hives.

    The truth is, he is the first customer, a very social guy, who likes to see people connecting and sharing what is important to them. When the co-founders are actively engaged, everyday, and even brand newbees recognize the dedication - well it is a recipe for success.

    But it goes much further than that. Because they are committed to taking a lot of people along for this exciting entrepreneurial ride. When customers within a few weeks, start to compare the experience to businesses they've been with for 2 decades - something truly special is going on.

    And here is the cherry on top - having fun and being social is built right into the recipe: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@javierbebee/ladies-and-gentlemen-the-bebee-gees

    Javier, I also see the good in others and welcome your positive and soothing comments on threads with unpleasant contributors.
    I think that on this platform we all have positive intentions, whether people act in good or bad ways. For me, responding to a negative situation in a positive way is the best way. :)

    The Medium is the Message - said Marshall McLuhan! I believe beBee is an apt example that quote. A Medium that is also a Message. A loud and clear one. Of INTEGRATED & INCLUSIVE, ONLINE PRESENCE. With its seamless integration of the Personal and Professional brand that every Individual is. It has pioneered a shift from Social Media to Society Media with its predominant characteristics - of Affinity, Accessibility, Association, Acknowledgment and Authenticity.

    Very moving buzz @Javier 🐝 beBee. Couldn't agree more, most of us learn from our mistakes and we will continue to make them. By learning from past mistakes and not repeating them are key to growth. I feel as you do, most people act with good intentions and I honestly try to keep that in mind. I actually try to think of the 'why's' behind a person's possible motives and in the end most times I can conclude, we are all human and no one knows what is going on behind closed doors. It's always my hope that others see the person in me beyond my words, I try to be a fairly open person. I have met so many wonderful people on beBee who would give the shirt off their back to help others and that puts a big smile on my face. What we share in common does lead to deeper relationships. Thanks for this!

    The stand out line from the buzz for me is this one :

    " We can create processes that promote a cooperative approach to differences rather than processes that encourage argument from entrenched positions."

What this demonstrates, moreover, is that beBee ownership, management, and membership are open to learning, thinking, refining, and evolving as a community. Which, IMO, is reason for great optimism concerning the future of the platform. Cheers to all!

    #105 Good to hear from you, Larry. You ask, I think, a couple of excellent questions. So let me answer: 1) Where the explicit mission of a social network is to create a "community" of users, I'd agree that, within the boundaries of the community standards for acceptable forms of expression, every community member's comments should be protected against removal. 2) Censorship is, in the strict sense of the word, prior restraint, either by active prohibition or by threat of sanction in the event of publication. Under which strict definition, removal or comments or posts by community officials would not, I think, be censorship, but as you say enforcement of community rules. Which is why I've repeated referred to an explicit statement of guidelines for removal or deletion. (The guidelines should be for the sanction because it is easier to define what is not acceptable than what is.)

    Notwithstanding that, however, I think we have to admit that the stated missions of most social media are not to create a "community", but something else, often a "platform" for self-publishing, personal-brand building, business and professional networking, job hunting, recruiting, and so on. So any inferences about what should be, cannot be drawn from accepted premises about a social community. IMO. Thank you for reading and joining the conversation.
    Larry Boyer, 🐝 Brand Ambassador
    20/02/2017 #105 Larry Boyer, 🐝 Brand Ambassador
    Excellent point @Phil Friedman and @Jim Murray and I agree on the points of censorship. However let me throw out another view where a social network is about creating a community of users. From a perspective of a community, as opposed to publishing platform, does user behavior and the removal of a user or their comment take different perspective? Could a user have every right to make a statement welcome in the community? If you have a state community value of respect and a user is not respectful are you censoring or simply creating a community where respect is valued by all and if not they are simply not part of the community? The results may be similar but the reason is different.

    #97 At least you admit we have a border.

    I compare our laws with other countries and we are EXTREMELY flexible. So flexible everyone seems to pick and choose which ones to follow.

    I am not one that picks on people whose legal status fluctuates because I know the complexities of immigration. The wall wont stop people coming here either or those that get paid to bring them. People whose status is in question are exploited and targeted for crime by their own people. They often cannot get home because they don't have a home or their home is over seas, not across a border... etc...

    Change is inevitable... hoping for the best possible outcome as always. Agitating people does not help and neither does masking reality.

    #96 In the absence of having anything good to say, say nothing. Even better, ignore that about which you have nothing good to say. It may be your right to speak, but it is also my right not to listen or read or pay attention. Cheers!

    19/02/2017 #98 Phil Friedman
    #95 Yes, David, that is right β€” as far as it goes. The problem is with deciding what crosses the line to become, in your words, "... online bullying, harassment, needless name calling, personal attacks or demonization of one's character..." The hard part is setting the standards. For example, I personally find a lot of the self-ascriptive BS that some people post about how they are pretty much the second coming of God really offensive. But in saying so, I am not in any way advocating censorship of such material. I am just exercising my right to recommend that my fellow bees ignore that material and not promote it without first reading and pondering what it means to the rest of us who are concerned with the reputation of the platform.

    For me, freedom of expression is a fundamental right for all, including those with whom I disagree and who spout malevolent bilge. However, guaranteeing freedom of expression does not obligate anyone to listen or otherwise pay attention. Thanks for joining the conversation. And cheers!

    #93 Because, Antionette, the ends of the world do not stop at the US border. And hope springs eternal. Not to mention that a stitch in time saves nine. The bright spot on the horizon is, however, that the way things are going, nobody will want to emigrate to the U.S. (which will eliminate the need for a Wall at taxpayer expense).

    19/02/2017 #95 David B. Grinberg
    Thanks for another exemplary exchange as usual, Phil and Jim. I agree with Phil that there is nothing wrong with constructive criticism expressed in a cordial/polite manner on social media. There should not be unwarranted restrictions against an open online dialogue even on contentious and controversial all issues. Everyone has the right to express their own opinion and disagree with the majority. But once language changes from constructive to destructive then problems arise. There's never a justification for online bullying, harassment, needless name calling, personal attacks or demonization of one's character, etc.
    Just keep online speech polite and cordial even if you disagree, and there shouldn't be any problems. this is not rocket science but basic common courtesy, respect and good manners. Is that about right, Phil and Jim?

    As i said when speaking to the group that caused this blog to be written, Personal Brand Development is the hardest to provide instructions for because we change as we age and as we work our way up the ladder in the organization or our company grows. These questions are so powerful because they get at our essence first then translate those key elements communicating it in the language of those that tell us what our brand is. Yes, holding it open is a good idea. I'm thinking of putting the exercise in my year-end have to list!

    @Juan Imaz - excellent article on personal branding and the beBee affinity networking concept. I'd like to add how powerful one's brand can become if personal interests intersect with professional interests.

    For example, in my current job as technical writer for a natural gas fuel systems company, I am always working with "automotive technology" and "mechanics" which are also personal passions of mine.

    I am also very involved in electronics and radio (RF) technology and have enjoyed my career in those industries.

    And finally, I enjoy teaching and helping others, so I am involved with educational plus hobby activities such as Maker Faire. I am blessed with actually enjoying my work and loving my job.

This is most helpful, as always, and I've shared in three hives: "Social Marketing Solutions" and "Social Media Marketing" and "Personal Branding."

    "Your personal online presence is key to success" It is as simple as that. And the more you participate in social media as a whole person, showcasing who you are right alongside what you do, the more likely you are to run into the sorts of opportunities that will bring joy and fulfillment into your life.

    Even Michelangelo Got Fired (And Hit With a Stick By a Pope).We don’t think of great artists being fired, but Michelangelo was dumped numerous times. One client thought his work was so lousy, he wouldn’t pay him. Another time, Michelangelo refused to show Pope Julius II his sketches for the Sistine Chapel....

    #36 Fill an urgent need for people that is not costly and give for free dear @Devesh Bhatt. This is a high value action. For a thirsty person in a hot area a drop of water means a lot. For the giver if he can supply it free and at low cost then you are delighting the customer at a loc pain for you. Yes, it can be done. I have many other examples.

    After reading this, I find myself covered in pollen and nectar. :)

    This story is a great example of how the shop keeper correctly read an external message -- people demand water -- and it to his credit he was able to supply it with synergistic impact. A+!

I loved this " If we feel the exchange of goods, services, and human energy is equal it elevates the interaction beyond the ordinary and creates a lasting memory". What a revealing statement tis is! I pondered on and the more I did, the more I liked it.

    #12 #11 You are a very rare elixir, @🐝 Fatima Williams. I still find it hard to put the feelings into words of your sincere marketing gesture for my book.

    As an author, to know that just one person read the book and felt what I wanted to convey, brings me joy and satisfaction. Even though I hadn't met you when I wrote the book, I feel in a certain way that I imagined you when I was thinking of my ideal reader. What an example of gravitational power of the human spirit - the power of words.

    What you write about, you bring about. Just as long as you put the words out into the world where they can do their work!
