How blockchain tech broadens thinking + what has recently fascinated us online. 👌 🙌 #52

🎉🎉 2 years 🎉🎉

This email is my 52nd. Thankyou for joining in, it’s fun receiving your replies!

Here’s what I’ve recently loved seeing online:

Oh, Carter Digital httpsters, you showcase such a clever combination of digital (“http”), sustainability ease (carbon neutral) and inviting words (“fine folk” on their email list)  ~

Surely Elon is proud ~

The world’s biggest About page?

Culture Amp’s “Need” filter on their Case Studies page reminds potential customers of their products and areas of specialisation. #clever

Startup inspiration ~

#truth ~

I love it when people keep it real ~

…and when well known people reply / acknowledge comments online ~

“Shiny” and “New” is pretty fun. Well done Hipchat 🙂

…watch to the end! Thanks Pete

Fascinating thinking

I’m really enjoying seeing blockchain tech broaden people’s thinking about providing services and products in the most effective way possible. This threadtalks through the example of a John Deere tractor.

“[The tractors’] value, including their resale value, is highly dependent on the continued efforts of the manufacturer to keep that software up to date…
they are near worthless unless issuer keeps promises they made about future effort.”

What are you enjoying online?

Our sessions – Online! Online Content Planning & Twitter Audience Building

We’ve been busily recrafting two of our unique sessions to an online format. We will be running two sessions 8 – 9 PM Melbourne time (EDT), Tuesdays 29 November, 2011 and 6 December, 2011.

Come along!

The sessions will cover:

1. Online Content Planning (creating months of non-time-dependent tweets and Facebook updates that are highly valued by your customers), and

2. Twitter Audience Building (finding and connecting with relevant customers and advocates – and doing so in a way where you can reach many people quickly).

These sessions will show how to use the Internet for the results you seek (such as: online sales, reaching your customers, etc) and how to have a Social Media system that gives you the most from the time you have available.

You can order your tickets here:

Samantha Bell will be running these sessions. Sam is the Managing Director of Runway Digital and has run this Social Media consultancy since 2006. She has refined the systems presented through thousands of hours of use and working with hundreds of clients. Information on Sam and Runway Digital is here.

Both workshops will include time for you to ask questions so that you gain a lot that is relevant to your business. Specifics on each session is below.

For those who have trained with Runway Digital in the past 6 months, these sessions cover ideas you have heard and remind you of specifics to reiterate what you have heard. Others who have trained with us a lot longer ago, we will update you on our favourite online tools and clever practices to improve Twitter, Facebook and other sites.

Join the discussion to enhance your online system! The price of these sessions may be recouped through your next sale via Twitter and your highly valued online content.
