    Our parents were once in our position. They were on the cutting edge and coming home to their, most likely "farmer" parents and talking about all the new technologies and ideas their company were working. Then, they grew up and realized that they were building a nation, family and community. The titles and cutting edge stuff faded to the background as they gained the wisdom of community building.

    I stopped explaining what I do...I just tell people I play with numbers and data all day or I jokingly tell people; I show people what a bad job they're doing.
    I always sigh when I have to answer the question: What's your title? I'm the Projects & Operations Analyst...They just stare at me because they don't want to ask: What's that? The fun part is when someone asks me: So, what's your degree in? I find the stunned silence when I say; I'm an Environmental Scientist by education...hilarious as they try to connect the two. As for my parent; she thinks I'm still a secretary.

    Interesting read, Steve. My first question is, do you think this is a communications problem that can be attributed to generational differences, especially considering that some of the job titles weren't even around during the time our parents were in the labor force?
    And second, would it be partially or fully accurate to tell your parents: I buy and sell media advertising for TV, other media outlets, and/or media-related private sector companies? Sometimes the most simple answer is best. Just a thought...

    Great post here @Steve Blakeman it sometimes helps telling our family and friends what we do. May be they have some advice to offer or might even end up getting us contacts that we can potentially use to expand our business or get advice on what we do. I think it's important that family knows our work and it's expectations. This will also help bring in a work life balance. The easiest way to explain our jobs is tell what we love the most about our jobs.

    I'm wondering why it matters if parents get it or not. One of my kids (both Millennials) is a branding exec; the other is a film publicist. On a high level, I understand what they do, but I have no idea what that translates to on a day-to-day basis. Several years ago, I had to tell THEM was a UI/UX designer was! So the point is, what difference does it make, so long as we can explain what we do to ourselves, and to those higher up the corporate food chain?

    Same issue here @Steve Blakeman, and I'm in a relatively "traditional" senior operations leadership role. My parents really don't understand what I do, but I've resigned myself to that being "OK". :-)

    Nice buzz! I enjoyed the list of reasons parents may note get it from Forbes. I like to think that in a few years when my oldest, who is now 16, joins the workforce in whatever it is he decides to pursue, that I will understand. Yet I wonder when my youngest, now 5, joins the workforce if the job will have even existed today. . .

    The sharing factor depends on the kind of relationship you have with your known audience, called followers and the real audience (3rd layer), if you witness only 1% it is great time to ask yourselves the right questions. MailChimps keeps standards of click through and sharing rates, you can compare when you analyze your newsletters performance.Writing without marketing your content is like pedaling without sweating. Being a good marketer of your quality content is essential, or you can leave the work to the Publisher (Paper version) that is why they earn so much money.

    the problem with a lot if internet marketing is it does anyrhing to get your attention. However, for many that just means getting in your way when you want to read something else, becoming an irritant, becoming that screen object which makes you shout out "will you just fuck off!?" To the screen. A total marketing switch off. Marketing is about turning curiosity into income - not 'awareness' into loathing.

    @Jim Murray "TV subnets one" makes sense to me. I fit closely with your B2B services prospector profile, so I'm going to follow @Jerry Fletcher's idea on tribes (handy its right there:). I do business development - which is basically stalking decision makers online personas looking for tidbits...and a key element in being credible is having connections (social network - usually linkedin) within the "tribe." Having "sufficient" known linkedin connections suffices for the old school tie of yesteryear-so they talk to me. From there it becomes phone call or face to face. As a means of getting past Dolores the secretary, getting the skinny on Dawn the boss, or wrangling an interview for a better job, social has been very kind to me...in fact, and (this is genuine), my wife went to an interview a few weeks ago and the girl said; is your husband the guy who's always on Linkedin? Not too many ''philpotts" in Bulgaria:) - so she had to admit it.

    #6 I don't disagree, Don. I write these pieces mostly for people in the B to B services industry, many of whom have expressed their frustration with digital marketers and and the programs they run. There is a lot of commerce on the web, but mostly it involves the selling of products, of which I would call Tv subnets one.
    Jerry Fletcher
    22/07/2017 #7 Jerry Fletcher
    Jim, Online marketing does work but not for everybody. The ones making fortunes, and there are few doing millions annually, all tend to cluster in products that have a tribal appeal. Tribes like survivalists, people pursuing health issues, folks with a very specific need they can't satisfy from local resources, addicts that need their porn or gambling or fighting games.

    When any part of a market gets out of whack it can occur. Consider the shaving club that started on line using the principle that made Gillette a household name (replaceable razors) that forced a major company to pay them a Billion dollars for their company.

    I have a client right now that is selling their service on line but it is a software-based, cloud-delivered subscription model which is where I see the on-line approach successful for B2B. Another company I'm advising is one of the best in the nation at SEO and Paid search. Their results require study that never stops and a scientific advertising approach that Claude Hopkins would love!

    I'm going to come at this from a different angle...watching my kids. My daughter watches this thing on youtube called "totally.tv" - it has 1.8m subscribers (not viewers, subscribers). She loves it. Some "Masha and the Bear" uploads have nearly a 1 billion hits(no terrestial tv outlet - made in Russia). Ed Sheeran -shape of you - nearly 2 billion hits. The latest Minions movie, Despicable 3, my son has all of the stuff - he even tortured me into buying a themed lunchbox - and he is only 4 this week. He bought the cross promotional t-shirt in Lidl and wears it everyday. ---In our house, we never had a TV - so they could only find this stuff online. So, it seems did a lot of other people. Based on a sample size of 2, Digital marketing seems to work just dandy! The common denominator here is quality of output, minions, ed sheeran, masha and the bear and (I hate to say it) totally.stupid are very high quality multi media products.

    22/07/2017 #5 Phil Friedman
    Part of the confusion lies with not distinguishing the medium from the means of delivery. An ad is an ad irrespective of whether it's delivered via TV or direct mail or email. Content marketing online is different from loss-leader promotion at a bricks and mortar store only in respect of method of delivery -- the principle is to give something of value away in order to draw customers into a sales situation. The only unique marketing medium offered by digital delivery is -- Inbound Marketing, which is interactive and focuses on building credibility and authority (branding). But Inbound Marketing is out of reach in most situations because it requires expertise in the product and the field in which the product is being marketed. And few marketers want to admit that they lack the ability to deliver that product or field specific expertises in an interactive environment, so end up actually delivering content marketing using basically worthless loss leader giveaways. In other words, the method of delivery differs as between digital vs print vs a sign in a window or on a billboard. The medium -- the approach -- remains the same. IMO. Cheers!

    Hey Jim, I have to disagree with some of this. There are people who sell toilet paper on the internet making a fortune. I bought some iron stain remover from a woman on Amazon who told me she shifts over 2000 units a week. Yes, that was on Amazon where there is already a significant amount of traffic, but that is part of the puzzle that businesses need to figure out. Maybe it doesn't make sense to invest in a lot of mediocre content for your website and play the spray and pray approach. Maybe businesses should focus on the market places (of which FB has its own now) for goods and services. But to know where to go and how to do it - you might want to ask a digital marketer. One that comes with lots of authentic reviews of course.

Those that are hackers will use it verify their own results. Pablo's' observation that "text performs better than posts with images," comment is something we thought was happening.

    #17 Sure, Sandra. The reason you can't find it on my "blog" page is that I published it as an update -- which I am doing more and more these days, especially on LinkedIn.

    #18 |Hi Matt i use an OpenSource web server to Market on all SM, and i don't address to my follower base, i look outside the LI box and that allows me to get 1835 LinkedIn searches a week that convert into 4 to 5 meeting weekly. LinkedIn is a landing plaform where users can turn the communication switch towards you...there again limited by LinkedIn inmail LOL.

    I think new tool for social media and digital marketing analysis, automation and proactive workflows are the next avenue. You cannot change FB, LI or twitter or any platforms, but you can perform an autopsy to analyze the causes: LOL ...pick your choice: a) death 2) dysfunctions & disease 3) the workflows etc...
    Affordable, not apps, but web servers S.a.a.S, are the key to override issues and master these platforms. Today these platforms decide of your fate....tomorrow you can have technology serving your goals, not theirs. And that time is coming sooner that you think. And it doesn't rely on API management always. My humble opinion..i am not debating here... Just because performance relies on quality content and affinity propagation.

    #14 LOL thanks for the compliment, but i doubt so. \\\\\\\\\\\\\All the programming they do at LI as a specific purpose, l imitating users was a demographic growth issue they knew they would hit at some point. The conception itself wasn't affinity oriented, which is the core advantage of beBee. LI was initially created for 10 000+ employers that needed a global reach HR tool for funneling competition's candidate, then they aimed to democratized towards SMBs, then make individual think they need to be in the database...and they succeed: 430 M+ jumped, including me. Not being on LinkedIn is like refusing to learn english and code your program only with Olmeque's language.

    #13 you and @Zacharias 🐝 Voulgaris could reverse engineer the algorithm, and suggest ways to improve it - then you'll probably get a few job offers from LI, LOL

    I was thinking of....reverse engineering LinkedIn to better understand the LI mind set, and the inner secrets of its coding, if it does make a sense and what that sense could be? Everything works for a reasons and the opposite too, the journey is about tp find how, and not why...human factor was probably there when compiling code with or without a master solution architects and with what the manage the core project management. I wouldn't be surprised to discover wonderful gems of mismanagement and lack of prospective vision. It is not because it is big that it wasn't done with common sense. Behind the scenes views and hints reveals always good things to know. After you just feel like Simon Pegg in a comedy....Not surprised but caught in dire straights. LOL.

    #3 Kawasaki is a master at social media, Stephen. You are right about putting relevant hashtags instead of made up ones like I did. I actually shared the article itself using #socialmedia and it seems to be doing quite well so far (way better than any of my last recent posts!). Thanks for reading and sharing :)

    #6 Agreed, Phil

    #7 Thanks, Matt! I totally agree about low engagement levels, and that is the next piece of the code that needs cracking, for sure. What I've observed casually is you need to have a very large following 20-30K plus to get the comments going, and get it right with your TOV, observations, and sense of humour. Of course, that can go horribly wrong if you're not funny, like me.

    #8 Thanks, Javier! You're welcome, glad it's useful.

    #9 Thanks, Renee, let me know how you get on.

    #11 Thanks, Zack! I will get round to doing a booklet one day, maybe, if only for lead gen purposes. Can be hard to sell stuff like this as so much free content out there, although @Steve Blakeman's book on becoming a Top LinkedIn Voice has done great. Appreciate the support though :)

    @Whitney Raver, this piece deserves a lot more attention than it appears to be receiving -- because contrary to what the title suggests, it is NOT the low ramblings of a drop-out Millennial trying to justify a life being semi-unemployed, but the chronicles of a determined achiever. Sharing this and hoping more will take the time to read what genuine inspiration is. Cheers!

    #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 it’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.
