Our Christmas Home away from Home: Royal Sands Cancun


My 12 year old son has been to our home away from home his whole life for Christmas, this is the timeshare that we compare all other time shares with.   If you have an opportunity to go to this resort...jump at the chance it will be a vacation you will never forget.  This resort knows how to do it right.   It is one Christmas tradition that is so nice.

Increase Your Digital Clout Day 30/30

Final words

Now you have completed the 30 days and you have just started the process now you have to share, share and share.  Remember if it is on the web it is not private, so think about what you are sharing and if it is something you do not want the whole world to know do not put it on a social media site.  People will get to know you, appreciate what you are willing to share and will in turn build a relationship with you.   There are some people that I know just in the digital world but I would consider them no less of a friend and you too will get to that stage as you continue to develop your clout.   For me it is my personal learning community, if I am curious about something that is happening or I want to do or have done, I as k my network…I get answers, opinions and smart alec responses but in the end it does help to formalize my thoughts…for me the social network has been invaluable for me to create my vision of where I want to be in 10 years.  From a business perspective, you net will carry a lot of power, it is the new way to market, it is a word of mouth type of sharing and is not a slick and polished as the traditional methods of advertising but it has no boundaries of distance and time which makes it very powerful.  I am happy you have taken the time to read all the 30 days and I hoped it helped you start your journey.

Increase Your Digital Clout Day 29/30

Check up

Today’s activity is a fairly simple one, but will give some hints as to how successful your media campaign is going.   The tool we are going to leverage today is called Google alert.   http://www.google.ca/alerts
In Google’s own words this is what Google alerts allow you to do:
Monitor the Web for interesting new content
Google Alerts are email updates of the latest relevant Google results (web, news, etc.) based on your queries.
Enter a search query you wish to monitor. You will see a preview of the type of results you'll receive. Some handy uses of Google Alerts include:
  • monitoring a developing news story
  • keeping current on a competitor or industry
  • getting the latest on a celebrity or event
  • keeping tabs on your favorite sports teams
The alert allows you to refine your search just like any Google search…
So why not just do a Google search, well you can but like many other aspects of this program we are trying to automate things.  These alerts will appear in your email…alerting you to a new instance showing up.

As shown above it is always interesting to search your own name.
You might also want to think about a tag or unique qualify that you will include in all your entries which will allow Google search to separate your entries from all the others that might have the same heading or topic.
This is a simple fast way to keep track of your entries that are posted elsewhere and to find out who else on the web is talking about…
In Project Management terminology: 
The Project
  • Building a Foundation for a Social Media Network.
Deliverable (is the noun):
  • Alert
Tasks (is a verb):
  • Pick a qualifier or topic or search query which will be unique to your entries
  • Set up a query in the Google alert site
  • Wait to see what is sent to your email.

Increase Your Digital Clout Day 28/30

Our goal is to increase a person’s or business social media clout.  

You should have a minimum of seven different social network sites in your network.  The only element tying them together is IFTTT.com and it should connect the five: Blog (sun), and four planets…Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and Google+.  Hovering around the outside is pinterest and Youtube.  These two support your network by giving you a place on the cloud to store your videos, and images which you would then add in your entries in your blog (sun) which in turn would then be fed out to your planets.

Keep straight in your mind the best way for you to feed information into your network is a key point that you will have to keep coming back to in order for you to be aware of what is the best place to put the information that you would like to share.   I do post some stuff separately to Facebook so it does not get splashed across my network.  Facebook is the most personal of all the sites that I have on my network, so I use it once and a while to share picture of my family with other family members and friends.  If I have an entry that I want to splash across the whole network then I always post it in the blog as that is my sun which everything else is built around.
