We live in the age of smoke and mirrors:
It seems as though everyone’s a salesman, but no one makes anything.
PR, media, web design, marketing, events, SEO, social networking, blogging, moderating, customer support, press, content, copy, publishing, music, video, VR, apps, data, analytics, AI, presenting, coaching, team building, training, mentoring, etc.
Nothing new and all variants of what has gone before. But with the seemingly exponential growth of sales and marketing in it’s so many new and mutated forms, and the continued decline in product manufacturing, it seems the world is on an inexorable path to somewhere, be it utopian or oblivion, that will find our current world as strange and alien as we see the World Of The Victorian Workhouse and disgusting shared Prive’.
The day cannot be far away before manufacturing and supply are replaced by giant 3D printers; you choose your goods from a menu, and they’re manufactured (printed) in the colour and specification you want whilst you wander the virtual Malls and Showrooms. Guaranteed for 3 years whereupon they become obsolete, and after which they’re automatically recalled to be recycled and replaced by the latest model. The Internet of Things (IoT) already replenishes my printer consumables, why shouldn’t it replace my car, for instance?
Yesterday, I sat in a Grand Hall full of entrepreneurs and directors and managers of SME’s, only to realise that there really are millions of people out there; intelligent, well educated, enthusiastic, entrepreneurial, hardworking, diligent, eager, inventive, etc. etc. people, for whom social and business networking via the WWW is still a complete mystery, furthermore, it seems I am an expert, and if you want to know more about LinkedIn, et al, I really can help.
However, and there’s always a ‘but’, I’m not sure if I could hold my head up and call it real work. I don’t know how I’d feel about charging money for sharing this ‘knowledge’.
I don’t know who it was, and it was many years ago (c. 2005), however, someone described social networking as “unpaid work”. Well it seems that’s no longer true, and that having been working at this, unpaid, for so many years, I am now happy to declare that if you want to learn more about the WWW and particularly social networking for business, I’d be more than happy to help, present to your team or audience, help you develop a strategy, whatever that might be, and the really good news – the initial consultation is free!
Lastly, having witnessed, first hand, the breadth of quality available in this particular market, do you know what….. I think I can probably add an awful lot of value to people’s’ enterprise.
