    People Do Business With People They Like

    This article from Amy Rees Anderson @amyreesanderson
    is brilliant.


    The most powerful tool you have in creating success in your life is to appreciate other people. When you appreciate others you will find that your relationships are stronger, your circle of friends will grow wider, your career and business will succeed beyond your expectations, and your life will simply be happier.

    Yes, she is a great example of a top notch personal brand, all her articles are well manicured and branded pieces

    Lost in the happy vanilla is this line in her blog

    "When you take time to do so you are helping that employee feel appreciated, but at the same time you are also teaching them the behaviors they should repeat in order to receive further thanks in the future"

    What I have learned this year is that finding fault in a well manicured and squeaky clean personal brand is a bit like a politician accidentally punching a baby :-)

    #68 @Phil Friedman, I have expressed my views loud and clear, just as you. Thank you for interesting discussion. I highly respect true values and everyone's opinion in SM and the pinnacle of that approach for me are people. Till next time, Cheers my friends, all of you.
    Phil Friedman
    20/05/2017 #69 Phil Friedman
    #64 It is true, Milos, that, as you say, " But we are all marketers on SM, more or less."
    However, a characteristic which defines, in part, Affiliate Marketing as a technique is that Affiliate Marketers often present themselves as simply expressing independent third-party opinions and recommendations, while failing to disclose that they have a relationship with the product, service, or brand they are recommending and endorsing, which relationship involves receiving monetary or other valuable consideration, or the promise of such in future, in exchange for their activities on behalf of the product, service, or brand involved.

    That, by the way, is why the U.S. Federal Trade Commission rules require disclosure of such relationship in cases where it is not normally assumed or otherwise evident. Celebrity Endorsements do not require such disclosure under the regulations because everyone already assumes that celebrities are being paid for their endorsements. And I personally believe that someone like @Jim Murray would not, if he were operating in the U.S., run afoul of the regulations because he openly refers to himself as a marketing writer and, in the case of, say, beBee, as a marketing "spokesman". So everyone reading understands the context.
    It is the frequent lack of transparency in Affiliate Marketing that is of concern. If you do not see the difference by now, I don't think you and I will get anywhere in further discussion.

    Milos -- Pt II

    There are those, for example, who fall within the category of Affiliate Marketers for beBee, who not only do not recognize their position, but actively deny it. Why they do so is beyond me, unless they are somehow uncomfortable with the fact that they are parties to a bilateral agreement for them to perform certain specifically delineated services in exchange for promised future monetary consideration.

    Of course, if they are, it is a simple matter to state publicly that they will not now or in future accept any monetary or other valuable consideration in exchange for their activities promoting beBee. Otherwise, it is what it is, namely, Affiliate Marketing.

    This entire issue arose because of an observation I made about the activities of beBee Brand Ambassadors potentially distorting the stats on Engagement. As evidenced by the fact that the vast majority of the comments on Producer posts appear to come from the same 150 to 200 people, most of whom are beBee Brand Ambassadors.


    If you disagree with that observation, feel free to present statistics to counter that observation. Of at least, feel free to challenge me to support it. Cheers!

    #63 This article is from my point of view a very self-similar article. @Jim Murray is a rare fractal bird - "a person who is much more than a marketer". Marketing has to be balanced and a meaningful at the same time. We are all tired of untargeted corporate commercials, a pompous self-marketing, and advertisements in accordance with the latest "ingenious" marketing concepts. But we are all marketers on SM, more or less. People are not numbers or marketing performance metrics and measurement.
    Phil Friedman
    20/05/2017 #63 Phil Friedman
    #60 what you say about this article is true. And it is not Affiliate Marketing, which involves endorsing or recommending a product, service, or brand. Which @Jim Murray does at times for beBee -- and very well because Jim is , among other things, a professional marketing writer who I am certain sees nothing wrong in doing marketing for beBee via his great memes and other testimonials. I also doubt the Jim would try to pose as someone who engages in social media activity SOLELY for the general good, and without seeking any personal benefit. But it's probably better to let Jim speak for himself on that. Cheers!

    #57 Milos, the term Affinity Marketer popped up inadvertently. Either I mistyped it or I misspelled "Affiliate" and the autocorrector changed it to "Affinity". All of my remarks refer to Affiliate Marketing and Affiliate Marketers. I am sorry for the confusion.

    #53 #56 #56 - Response (Part 3) - A big difference between these two terms: AFFILIATE marketing and AFFINITY marketing.

    @Phil Friedman, AFFILIATE marketing and AFFINITY marketing are not the same. There is a big difference between these two terms - concepts of marketing:
    โ€œAFFILIATE marketing is a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate's own marketing efforts.... Eighty percent of affiliate programs today use revenue sharing or pay per sale (PPS) as a compensation method, nineteen percent use cost per action (CPA), and the remaining programs use other methods such as cost per click (CPC) or cost per mille (CPM, cost per estimated 1000 views).โ€ - from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Affiliate_marketing
    โ€œAFFINITY marketing is a concept that consists of a partnership between a company and an organization that gathers persons sharing the same interests (known as an affinity group) to bring a vaster consumer base to the opposite party... They defined the word Affinity as "an individual level of cohesiveness, social bonding, identification and conformity to the norms and standards of a particular reference group" whereas marketing is described to be the "expectation of benefit for the individual satisfying consumer wants and needs. Affinity groups in which people recognize themselves may be a charitable organization, a football team, the enterprise they work for, a specific company, an organization they belong to... โ€ - from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Affinity_marketing
    For the record, some of our best friends (like @Jim Murray) are beBee AFFINITY Marketers and it is not the same as beBee AFFILIATE Marketers. Seriously. Best Regards, Milos

    #53 #56 #56 - Response (Part 2) - Previous discussion about AFFILIATE marketing and marketers

    @Phil Friedman, We only discuss about AFFILIATE marketing and marketers:
    #26 โ€œYou are welcome nd. Maybe this is just an AFFILIATE marketing. Just guess :)โ€ - M.Dj.
    #30 โ€œWhat makes one an AFFILIATE Marketer is accepting monetary or other consideration,or the promise of future monetary or other consideration, in exchange for the performance of duties which one is not by law required to perform.โ€ โ€“ P.F.
    #31 โ€œI did not say that "He Said He Said" is an instance of AFFILIATE marketing.โ€ โ€“ M.Dj.
    #32 โ€œI think part of our difference here is that I do not see the term " AFFILIATE Marketer" as pejorative.โ€ - P.F.
    #33 โ€œAFFILIATES are fair weather friends. Like I said before, friendship remains, promotion not.โ€ โ€“ M.Dj.
    #35 โ€œIf the active participation of readers in the discussion or sharing of content are labeled as a AFFILIATE marketing activity of a curious participant then there is no real trust between participants, which is one of the required prerequisite for realization of not only friendship, but also for healthy business relationships.โ€ โ€“ M.Dj.
    #40 โ€œI doubt, for example, that Jim Murray would object to being described as a "Marketer" or even as an " AFFILIATE Marketer". Because that is what he does -- and damned well, at that.โ€ - P.F.
    #41"Anyway, my remarks in several posts about beBee's corps of AFFILIATE Marketers refer to a designated group of beBee users who have been promised future monetary consideration (share of equity) if and when beBee is successful, in exchange for performing a list of tasks having to do with the marketing and promotion of beBee." - P.F.

    #53 #56 #56 - Response (Part 1) - About misconstruction and the blurring of truth

    @Phil Friedman, I would ask you not to make a mess with the linguistic terms and also not to change words and terms that were used in this discussion. In order to explain, I will emphasized terms that were used with big letters.

    Prior to your comment #53, the term AFFINITY Marketer or AFFINITY marketing were never mentioned in this discussion. Please check #53 #56 #56 - Response (Part 2) as an evidence .

    Therefore, your statement:

    โ€œ#52 once again, Milos, the application of the term AFFINITY marketer, does not involve a judgment unless one presupposes that a pejorative connotation attaches to the term -- which you seem to do.โ€ โ€“ P.F.,

    is misconstruction and the blurring of truth. I have not discussed with you about the application of the term AFFINITY marketer, but about a completely different term: AFFILIATE marketer.

    Our views differ regarding the usage of a completely different linguistic terms: AFFILIATE marketer or AFFILIATE marketing and not regarding the usage of AFFINITY marketing or AFFINITY marketing terms, which were not mentioned before your comment #52. Please check #53 #56 #56 - Response (Part 3) for the difference between these two terms: AFFILIATE marketing and AFFINITY marketing .

    #52 Thanks @Milos Djukic. I am not at all sure what an affinity marketer actually is. In point of fact I think of the stuff I do for beBee, either the memes or the long format posts, as nothing more or less than promotion. Being in communications, I have a different and fairly verticalized view of the term marketing. It's misused a lot. But I have honestly never seen the word affinity attached to it. So if I were you, I would trademark the term and put it on the market.
    Somebody will jump on it for sure.

    @Jim Murray, I'm a firm believer in Dunbar's Number. Because of that, I don't seek endless numbers of connections -- on LinkedIn, beBee, or anywhere else. If I'm going to be a part of someone's network or have them as a part of mine, I have to be able to remember who they are... and why they're there.

    This is somewhat the way I gathered baseball cards back in my youth. If I didn't know the player, didn't admire his accomplishments, or didn't find anything particularly appealing about him, I'd use a clothes pin to attach his card to the front fork of my bicycle and use it to make an exhaust-like noise against the spokes. (I could be cruel.)

    I love discovering new points of view and new voices. Yet, if I look through someone's articles and, out of ten, find only one of any interest, well... I'm probably not going to be one of their followers. And, yes, I'd expect the same in return.

    That explains why, unlike you, I don't really have an 80%. Just a 20% that's my hundred. Sort of like what Spencer Tracy said about Katherine Hepburn in "Pat and Mike," "Not much meat on her, but what's there is cherce."

    #54 I agree @Gert Scholtz, that's not just a great quote but true. I have been working on positive thinking. When a person has Anxiety disorder their mind tends to go right to all the 'what if's, or worst case scenarios. It takes a lot of practice and staying vigilant of these thoughts that seemed to come naturally over many years (even though they aren't natural) to replace with positive but it's possible and the more one practices it becomes easier. Rome wasn't built over night as my therapist reminded me and the our thought processes that we may have just accepted as 'who we are,' were also years in the making so it takes time to reprogram the brain. This why I love reading all the positivity, it's a great reinforcement for me, so Thank YOU and thanks to others like Javier who keep it real!!

Gert, my friend who study each one of us to the core where somewhere we are unaware of ourselves as a person. Javier is our king bee and an interactive and approachable one who had never let any one of us down. One needs to pick bits of information in order to create a post on an individual and am sure you might have spent hours doing it. Each bee is unique here and no one can replace them as beBee has placed everyone at their correct places.

    beautiful...you have captured @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee 's spirit perfectly @Gert Scholtz ! This one especially resonated: " Since the birth of social media, users have tended to keep their business profiles and interactions separate from their personal ones. However, that division is more erroneous than helpful since, as people pour themselves into their careers, the personal and business often spill over into one another, and make for important connections. New social networks like beBee are tapping into this, offering users a way to connect on many levels โ€” by their work activities as well as by their personal interests."

    I agree 100%. beBee has been the #1 social platform to re-share articles that I wrote sometimes years ago. I tried sharing them on Linkedin Pulse, Facebook, ect, yet when I brought them to the Hive my views skyrocketed.
    I also feel it is the relationships here. I noticed that here us bees are promoting eachother, while in other platforms, the majority of members are mostly self--promoting. For example, Facebook is all about the Money. They do not want you to get views unless you pay for it.
    Thanks to @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee , this site allows our honey to reached all sides of the world just by helping each-other. I joined beBee back in November of 2016. Now, my blog and my of my works have gone viral. It started from Shares from beBee.

    Good advice. One addition. For those contacts you really hit it off with that are real possibilities for your help send them a written thank you note for meeting with you and suggesting a time & place to meet at length. That worked once for a client who was dead-set against it to the tune of $1.2 Million in new revenues within one week. Suggested it to a start up client a few weeks ago. It landed them a meeting with one of their largest target prospects only because they reached out. BUT, it doesn't work everywhere. Once working with sales force I suggested this. The entire South American contingent told me I was crazy because they simply did not have mail service like North America and Europe.

    The theme I really like is about developing an "integrated online presence". If you truly have a strong personal brand you have an integrated presence and you exude that same brand everywhere you are. I also love that beBee recognizes different platforms for difference purposes. It's important to have a primary hub to operate from and use the others to augment. beBee has set itself up to be that hub.

    It takes a lifetime to reinvent oneself and another lifetime to reach to the right people. I have always believed in the mission of beBee an affinity based platform that it made me more humble and an approachable bee. Here I could remember all my friends and their friends through common interests and mind stimulating buzzes. A great way to start networking would be to approach people and make them realize how unique they are as they have spent years polishing themselves. Being emphatic and always ready to learn from others are few aspects which helps us forge long lasting friendship. You have always equally respected your bees , our own king bee,@Javier ๐Ÿ beBee

    Great Buzz. I remember once being told that if I go through " I know someone who knows someone..." seven times, I will reach everyone in the world. That is the really power of networking. I don't know everyone, yet by connect to enough bees and building relationships to someone who knows someone who knows someone who knows someone, I now do.
    A great example is someone the great bees whom have shared my honey on this site on down this to other social sites like Twitter. I looked on their site, and they had over 55,000 followers. Then my post was re-tweeted a few times. If I was to reach that amount of people by email one by one, it would take a lifetime.
    Networking is a Team effort and everyone wins.

    Before re-inventing, comes creating oneself. Take your time, breath deeply, write about it 20 minutes a day, the whole week long. Brainstorm with peers and ask them how they see you. takes notes, some expressions might be precious and uselful in your (numerous)baselines on your differents social media accounts.
    Segment who you want to connect with and make them your targets - primary (40%)- secondary(20%) - others (combined %).
    Launch your branding campaign 1)objective 1 - get to be exposed 2)get to be known for at least 3 useful reasons to be engaged with !
    Be structured.
    At for the road. Do not ever give up !

    #26 @Pamela ๐Ÿ Williams of course u are right 100%. Anyone with good will & intents, can re-invent herself/himself. Only people with no talent at all or no imagination , with like almost zero skills cannot be -1) creative -2)inventive -3)positive , cannot reinvent themselves .
    BeBee branding tool ? certainly yes ! LinkedIn branding tool yes ! facebook branding tool, etc...yes+ yes +yes.
    Branding belongs to Marketing. And marketing are sciences & tools. believe in yourself matters, more than opinions. Opinion is not branding. Opinion deals with a)positive ones =popularity b)negative ones = claims & continuous detractors.

    Great post and a lot of essentials statements @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee. LinkedIn is necessary to feed the results and give something to snack for recruiters. They are doing their job. Screening you. If you are not prepared of have put together a solid branding, portfolio, showcases, all the sections in fact (for that LI is really well built) you just do not interact with the very same purpose why you are on LI. Getting hired ! It will remain, i humbly think the largest recruitment database in the world. LinkedIn pulse is a sub-product and will be very useful if you have something to say, or write. Now LinkedIn demonstrated that it is not a free , nor an open platform, it is meant for business & recruiting. You want to get visibility in from HR people, pay for it ! Brand building has a cost. And everyone should consider that...budgeting. So Brand Building, isnt free of efforts, knowledge, skills, and..costs.
    beBee would be a better version tool to give the opportunity to see how we behave online, what do we post, what do we lead as constructive & proactive initiatives. I was 23d LinkedIn influencer in my country, now that i use beBee, i have daily offers and it doesn't mind where i stand in terms of ranking or views or followers.What matters is that beBee changed the game: ENGAGEMENT with serious motivated hiring managers, project holders, investors, peers & new team mates. affiliates, business developpers...and this all over the world.

    We should all be a little careful about "reinventing ourselves." I see posts that are obviously influenced by something they read here. Being influenced, being inspired is fantastic. Just remember that writing like them, or taking on the same topics isn't reinventing yourself. Always be you. Everyone else is taken.

    #26 Pamela, FWIW, I personally do not think your comment is off-topic at all. I just don't believe in reinventing oneself, when it comes to "branding". Indeed, I don't believe in inventing yourself in the first place. Or your "brand". I personally believe a brand develops and grows, and that you can nurture it and cultivate it, but you cannot create it. At least, not if the term "authenticity" means anything when it comes to branding. Cheers!

    Maybe this is off-topic but another great asset of social media and networking is broadening your horizons, taking paths you might not have considered had it not been for the inspiration of your network. In other words; looking at yourself in a entirely new way. I know because that is what beBee has done for me. If you're not thrilled with your brand then watch, listen, observe, bee inspired and reinvent yourself
    Phil Friedman
    13/05/2017 #25 Phil Friedman
    #16 Jerry, yourcomment carries a deep insight into branding that is all too often overlooked. A brand grows as the result of one's actions. But you cannot "create" a brand; you can only nurture it. And it has to generate on its own. Cheers!

    Useful, but ... Last week I was talking with a colleague, who might also be a potential strategic client, about LikedIn. He says that he rarely logs in to his account. He never heard of beBee, yet. I wonder if the right people are reading? Most of the colleagues I encounter on these sites are also selling (incl. job hunting). I am reminded of a local professional society that used to bring consultants and clients together for interesting talks but since they stopped reaching out to potential clients all they get are consultants complaining to each other that they can't find business. I don't go there often anymore, but there aren't too many alyernatives.

    @Fernando ๐Ÿ Santa Isabel Llanos, los que de alguna manera trabajamos o interactuamos habitualmente con las redes sociales podemos hacer una gran labor divulgativa. Creo que una buena manera es recomendar a nuestros clientes a quienes asesoramos (o jefes si trabajas en una empresa) que tengan presencia en beBee.

    Muchos directivos o jefes no utilizan redes sociales, o no al menos como para enterarse que existe beBee. Alucino con la cantidad de clientes que no saben quรฉ es Google Plus, por ejemplo. Y ahรญ es donde entramos los social media o gestores de contenido, recomendado publicar sus contenidos tambiรฉn en beBee.

    Estoy convencido de que un profesional o empresa que tenga presencia en beBee estรก apostando a carta ganadora y le ayudarรก a posicionar mejor su marca personal o corporativa. Y estoy convencido de que en beBee algo estarรกn cociendo para que las empresas y profesionales tengan una interacciรณn mรกs potente en esta red social. Creo que serรญa un acierto que se pudiera crear contenido desde una ficha de empresa. Ahora eso solo es posible si das de alta a una empresa como si fuera una persona. @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee

    Totalmente de acuerdo, aunque yo no sea un buen ejemplo (laboral-profesional)...... Pero desde luego si algo hace grande a beBee es el equipo de personas que se dedican a procurarnos buenos momentos, buenos conocimientos, y total apoyo y seguimiento, desde el "jafazo" hasta el botones (aunque no sea Sacarino)....... Y asi es facil captar buenos usuarios, es una red llena de buenos momentos, mejores pasiones, y grandes oportunidades, sรณlo es cuestiรณn de romper la "inercia" de Linkedin, y entonces beBee explotarรก... Como una Supernova en le universo, llenando todo con gran poder de atraccion, pero sin convertirse en un agujero negro.... Ya me dareis la razรณn algรบn dรญa.... Seguro!!!!

    Branding vs Marketing - Why Branding ?
    Branding vs Marketing - Why Branding ?Marketing and branding are two of the major "buzz words"ย  that we use in the industry. Your brand is who you are. Marketing is your message.Branding comes first, marketing second.You own your marketing; your consumers own your brand....

    13/05/2017 #26 Robert Cormack
    I would add to this @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee that we all need strategy. When you have a brand and people see it, they want consistency, meaning they expect certain things from you. If your posts (and your brand) are scientific, people expect science (not self-promotion). Your strategy has to be a matter of giving. You give information in an insightful, interesting manner, and people follow. This is strategy and very different from marketing. Before you sell yourself or your product, make sure you've built a level of trust. This is key and extremely important. So many people fail on social media because they jump right to marketing. Build a friendship with your audience first. Attract people through your knowledge, your insights, your humour, etc. Once people follow you as a person (trust) then you can implement brand and marketing. Always have your strategy down first. And make sure it's long-term, not "shoot and split" (second biggest mistake on social media). Thanks for the post, Javier.

    This is a great post but, I highly advise anyone who wants to "brand" themselves to think very carefully. A Brand can sometimes be seal-defeating. It can align you with only one major focus. We as humans are much more complex than this. We have multiple abilities and multitudes of interests and because embedded in all of us is the most advanced technology ever developed - our mind - we constantly change it. What's more difficult is to change someone else's. So if you intend to brand yourself, be prepared to except the consequences for the long haul.

    Great perspectives Javbee! I would like to add more to this deck hopefully soon, but for now I would just like to add a point:

    The Brand is bigger than the hands that build it.

    And yes it ( the B) is the starting point. The brand, identity and ethos come before all else and constantly evolves through the other efforts.

    If bees are the ambassadors, the hive is the Brand, the honey is the Product. ;)

    @John Prpich I agree. Personal Branding is about who you are. Branding is the being. Marketing is the doing.

    09/05/2017 #8 John Prpich
    Javier, Branding isn't what you are, it's who you are, there's a significant difference. It's about your purpose as an organization and how you may contribute to the greater good. It's the sum of all of your customers experiences.

    5 Tips for Sending Effective Cold Emails That Will Generate a Response
    5 Tips for Sending Effective Cold Emails That Will Generate a ResponseThe overall effectiveness of email marketing has been debated over the past few years. Some conclude that cold emails are simply ineffective and potentially a waste of time. The truth of the matter is that cold emails can be enormously effective,...

    You choose the medium most likely to get the response you require. Cold calling is often essentially a fishing exercise, without the right bait. Like taking a scatter gun in the hope of hitting an unknown target. Like many unsolicited approaches it has a poor return percentage. Ask anyone how they feel being cold called, very few if any welcome that approach. Remember to the golden rule for e-mails is never open unsolicited ones. Like leaflets and similar dump them in the trash can.
    Whatever approach you choose make sure you limit your targets to those you know beyond doubt could lead somewhere.

    exception to the rule, sending inmal or cold inmail inside a social media plateform are considered allowed, as far as you do not act on a constant recurrent basis, and you can share or cold contact. who is related to you or your contact base, active since the last 6 months. i love the article by the way, all good points from a marketing standpoint

    read the spam act before cold email anyone..beware of consequences. No , cold callin is still legit, but social selling and introductions are nowadays effective. But we live in a free world still, so do what you may, till caught...freedom

    Cold e-mails on Hotmail isn't that an oxymoron. They would/will get a luke warm response from me. In fact I have zero tolerance of cold calling in any form. They are like the cookies you can't eat a time waster. If you want information there is always the Internet, and you can get it when you want it not when someone thinks you do. Regain your life boycott cold calling.

    The things is we have to manually send them due to the latest regulations. They can be effective if your personal brand and its wide exposure are well established and targets circles of influence are always talking about you. All about building data intel on who you want to cold call or cold email, with a purpose...the famous added value proposition.
