The Top 5 Things Restaurants Misunderstand About Social Media

Whether you want to admit it or not, social media is here to stay.  Everyone (And I truly mean EVERYONE), needs to accept this fact and figure out how they want to incorporate social media into their marketing and advertising efforts.

When I'm in restaurants, meeting with the owners, discussing  their customer loyalty and marketing plans, I learn as much as I can about what they…

Restaurants, Dining Experience and Marketing

Restaurants are a common new business venture but unfortunately, they also have a high rate of business failure.



We ask ourselves... what are the reasons people go to restaurants? Dining out is more than just going for food. In many situations, dining out means a social event or an entertainment experience. The overall atmosphere within the restaurant has a large impact. The manager or owner of a restaurant needs to have a focus on the customers' entire dining…

Want More Social Media Clients? Keep Writing



Readers of my blog will know by now that my writing schedule has stepped up a bunch. What you may be shocked to hear is that I am curtailing certain other activities (use your imagination) so that I can continue to plug away at the writing. To be clear, I write for myself and because I have to. I absolutely need to write, and those days that I don't have even the shortest window to throw some thoughts down, are days that I don't feel I fully lived.



But I've noticed… Continue

Are you a social media slave?

Miley Cyrus left Twitter because she felt like a social media slave and I certainly felt like one last week as my to do list kept bugging me that I haven't blogged in a while.



No one ever said it was easy to do this social media thing, but I think it's especially challenging for businesses. I try to blog once a week. If I have ideas during the week, I just pop them into a folder and then when "blogging… Continue

How to Write a Blog Post-In Pain English

Not all of us are familiar with how to post a web log (blog). According to wikipedia, A blog (a contraction of the term "Web log") is a Web site, usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

Something Might Happen!

I have FohBoh to thank for this, my first foray into blogging. It's a culmination of a few things actually.



I love technology. I grew up with it. My first real computer was a time-sharing system. Dial up? Yes, but the "keyboard and monitor" were a clunky teletype system. On a good day you might even hear me tell some stories about DARPAnet. I've played with mainframes, minicomputers and PC’s starting with DOS 1.0.



I’d giggle inside my head when visiting friends and I saw… Continue

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
