Identify a Parallel and Enjoy the Personalized Message

June 20, 2014 by  

When Anita Luvera Mayer  described the purpose of her art, her verbiage painted a picture. Concepts clicked. Parallels revealed themselves. In short, the earth around me moved. “Creative Cloth,” her DVD, became less about color discharge, wrapped rings and appliques, and more about creative problem solving.

Anita’s enthusiasm for communicating illustrated for me a new way in which to talk about social media. It happens that way. When you find the solution right for you, there’s a knowing in the core of your being.

I saw connections between terms:bigstock-An-image-of-a-nice-clock-with--23918366

Plan – a detailed proposal for doing or achieving something

Guide – a thing that helps someone to form an opinion or make a decision about something

System – a set of connected things or parts forming a complex whole, in particular

Process – a series of actions or steps taken in order to achieve a particular end

Framework – a basic structure underlying a system, concept, or text

By any name – plan, guide, system, process, framework – the results can be the same. One comment presented at the perfect time changes your perception and subsequently, your results. Or, as the saying goes: “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.”

My UNMCE summer class offers a framework for Marketing with Social Media.

Beginning July 8, 2014, this three-week deep dive covers questions such as:

  • What really works in social media now?
  • How can I “come back” from my lack of presence on Facebook and other social channels?
  • What’s really important with social media? I spend a ton of time and get little return.
  • Show me an effective post for my business.
  • What are general best practices for each of the top social media channels?
  • How do I translate this knowledge to something that can work better for me?

Typically, UNMCE class size is small, less than 10 people total. This means participants receive individualized attention and can explore questions specific to their industry or business.

We’ll work through the questions in a sequence of presentations and exercises designed to change how you look at social media, what you expect from your social efforts, and how you execute and evaluate the work you put into social channels.
While I can’t promise you’ll be as excited about social media as I got about stacked beading, it’s just possible that you’ll find a parallel you can apply.
