It seems I do it bad way. Good intention, bad methods of making. I’ve got Your attention and many readers. I’ve got Your belief that I know what I am doing. I know it exactly when talking on subject. It is much more worse when talking on the way to keep independency.

Simply I have readers and no income. In other words, I will not be able to keep this way how I am doing things. Yet in other words I will have to offer independency to stay independent. And it is way to the hell.

I believe that it is of value to develop trustworthy way of doing business. Hopefully there is one more way.

I’ve got a question: “…which traffic source works best for you?” Might be a simple picture or poor few words would be the answer. But! But this is such important question, that it is great to write little bit more what I am doing over social networks. Maybe for somebody cautionary tale, maybe good idea to involve to own social being.

First of all, I am relationship believer. For sure, as You want to involve large communities to Your daily life, there is no doubt to miss possibility of daily communication to everybody. You can stay with truly small community of people that You know relatively well and to develop some more personal relationship. But in this case, Your possibilities of next steps are limited to this community.

Of course, there is an approach to “buy” followers. That is crazy in most cases. We can easily imagine a business that is not as much dependent on relationships. Then this approach is usable to some extent, however I would not use it anyhow.

Thus, let us take the case, when we are daily developing own network of people with some extent of relationship to us. How to achieve this? Simply we have to look for something, what is as common for people as possible. I recognize the music as this glue, that puts people together. Furthermore I love the music of many different styles.

The music as a common glues is great but also has own disadvantage. There are many many people using the music also for marketing purposes. It leads to relative “silence” of Your voice in this community. It does not matter how often You post some new tweet on music, there are plenty other tweets surrounding that Your one. In other words, nobody will “see” your tweets because of huge amounts of others.

All of these circumstances I have recognized still before I posted the first “musical” tweet. So I have decided in first stage to post some amount of “musical” tweets not expecting any feedback. Of course, there was some feedback however, but marginal as expected.

trafficIn next stage, when there were amounts of my own tweets on music I prepared search request, that is collecting all of my previous “works” to one whole. Still leaving to people possibility to search directly for other music or content, if they were somehow “tired” of theme proposed. I am not afraid to open to people other doors to leave me, because I know, that exactly those people, that I am looking for will come back again. It is not any scientific fact, there is nothing mystical about it, simply my experience tells me so. I believe to my people, and You believe me. Simple relationship.

What is it all good for? I say, I am relationship believer. In huge competition of people, webpages, blogs and rather important impressive news that You can be daily overwhelmed with, in this competition it is much more effective to build relationship between people than between a human and some webpage. I prefer to learn people to look for me as regularly, as I look for them and offer them as an option to look at the webpage I want to. Not as a duty, but as the option. And as I see, You love this approach, what makes me happy.

It was absolutely clever too, that I am not able to put together so many content of different genre to attract really big number of users to visit also my webpage. So I recognized, that still it is possible to bring the people where I want to simply collecting information on tweets with really valuable content. The people have not so many time to read everything, think it over and some times they have also no idea to look for some information themselves. That is the former beginning to mark some tweets with valuable content by “I strongly recommend” mark. Of course, I am not alone who does this, there are plenty others. The difference is, that I use these words rather carefully so as to keep high level of evaluation. Furthermore, for next steps I use to take into the account also Your preferences given by how much You were engaged in previous honored tweets.

But this would be worth nothing without possibility simply to collect all these valuable articles to one whole again. That is why I use specific search for Strongly recommend reward. And this not only brings people to one place, but it does bring them to this place regularly. In other words, instead of posting tens or hundreds tweets with small engagement, I need less tweets to get people involved. And that is my bonus.

But I knew also, that I will not succeed to find some really very important article everyday, but still there is a way how to bring people to one place simply by their own activity. As I found, there are many people interested in collections of tweets, but they often have not enough of own skills to put things together. Really, not all the people were born with data manipulation and data searching capabilities! Thus if we put together some collection of searches that allow to people to find really important and relevant information they are looking for, it will be helpful.

And this idea is simply the frame around which “What the Others Say” is build.

All these three interest collections allow me to bring people to information they are looking for and as a bonus to build own marketing channel to get people involved into.

For sure, I have next plans and will do what is possible to keep the level that has been set-up. But I do not use to reveal my plans, just follow me, I promise You, there will be interesting things done that will be Your bonus of this crazy connection.

There would be no success, if there were no fails. We absolutely need something to compare so as anything could be qualified as success. However, it is much more obvious to find article on “positive” success side of any human activity. This way we are escalating the pressure to people and society to feel anything “not successful” as something undue, something what would never occur.

Compare by Yourself

                                   Success story                             Failure story

We all clearly understand deep difference between meaning of successful and outsider words. Deep psychological, sociological and marketing reasons force us to use specific “positive” approach. The worst is, that people are thus not prepaired to face to daily reality.

Whatever human activity You start to study, there will be ratio of unsuccessful versus successful attempts surely other than balanced and surely other than successful is always winner.

Success is one side at the dice. All the other sides are the other attempts.

Just throw the dice sufficient number of repetitions to receive Déjà vu success!

The visionaries are all around us every day. What makes a difference is if they loudly describe their vision or simply waiting what will happen. There are 99% people waiting, however there is 1% of people like you, working on positive change based on their belief. It´s a great opportunity to publish your vision soon, so as to become the first visionary describing the future even before it gets reality.

Visions and Visionaries Hero ImageLet me offer you free opportunity loudly to describe your valuable vision and use this channel as the great marketing opportunity. It allows you to find other people of similar feelings or needs. It will allow you to find the prospects and customers.

I´m sure, that you have valuable vision that would be published right now. This will allow you to confirm that your vision is getting reality later on.

If you want to publish your vision or somebody´s vision that you appreciate, you are welcome at group Visions and visionaries.

You are also welcome to bring other people in conformance to your strategy.

Everything big starts small

Marketing people are the craziest ones we ever can find! Their assumption is that everything what the competitors do has to be done. Furthermore they want to get ever to another level than the competitors stand at. If the competitors are singing selling the shoes, they will probably ask for singing shoes… Just to get to another level!

But there is a small obstacle to overcome. The obstacle is the customer´s need that has got out of the scope. Let me propose my vision of a company creating products/services appropriately to the customer´s needs.

WE ARE the customers! Hey you up there! It´s really simple, just offer us what we really need at such a quality level that we will never look for what your competitors do!

I believe, that really well suited products/services are sold self with full help of the customers keeping attention of their families, friends, colleagues as well as other customers they meet randomly. The pressure will be initiated by the customer base in following years. It will kill every company not listening to the customers needs.

Yes, you are right, I have closed a plant producing singing shoes…

I suspect the mathematicians that they are well-known as very sullen strange people only because of their own effort. In fact, I do not know any mathematician truly sullen… They are pretty, full of surprise, friendly but careful people. In all extent it is correct reminding Eva Gedeonová, Slovak woman-mathematician. I was very helpless getting information that she has died aged 53. If I want to explain what I feel, it´s simply friendship to my teacher.

I have to laugh whenever thinking as I have attended linear algebra exam in her workroom. I have got all sweaty putting together some truly marvelous proof of some mathematical theorem. Eva has reviewed my papers and she has really got pretty saying: “You know, the fact remains true nevertheless that it is not proven by your papers…”. That was her unique approach how to let students to lite of the tests.

You know, I´d like to hear it once more again from her mouth!

Twenty years ago I was facing really big challenge to propose information technology strategy of insurance company – the leader of insurance industry at Slovakia. One of things, that I have proposed was to develop strategy of forgetting information. The reason was and actually is ever the same. From many reasons, this was not done until today. Not only at that company. Most of companies, governmental agencies or non-profit bodies do not develop anything similar to strategy of forgetting.

You can not keep all the data forever. There are several limits given by many factors. The computers have limited time to get to the required results. You need not to get the answer immediately. There are applications allowing us to wait for the results at reasonable time. However, you would not wait on results 10000 years because of some natural limits given by average life expectancy. This idea leads to development of new techniques of computation at several machines at the same time, but paradoxically it did not lead to development of strategy of forgetting. Simply, people around mean, that it is ever easier to develop new techniques how to compute than to take his wits and clearly divide information on those, that we will hold for a long, but defined time, and the data, that might be lost very quickly. Very quickly – nevertheless what it means.

The idea of distributed computing does not solve the problem. It solves many problems and helps us to make the computations, that we would not be able to do without these techniques. But it is not solution of strategy of forgetting the information, that are already obsolete. Why? Simply, let us imagine, that we put together necessary amount of machines and using parallel processing we simply get the answers, we require. Thus there will be some crazy person asking for additional questions that are of importance to ask and requiring the answer. Et cetera, et cetera. Once early in the morning waking up you simply find the reality, that amount of sources available is not what you need, so you have to extend the amount of computers involved, and of course, you need to extend power consumption as well. So, the concept of distributed computing has limitations as well and in fact it does not solve the necessity of building strategy of forgetting.

There is another approach at the hardware level – empowering the processing possibilities of processors. The manufacturers of processors are doing the best possible, to bring ever more power to the computers. There is very large pressure of marketplace at this field. Let us thank to the market pressure that this is the trend, but again – let us remember that there are limits as well. For sure, the processors will be ever more powerful using ever bigger instruction set capable to compute ever bigger amounts of data at the same time – but with limits!

I was very surprised over the last two decades, that this simple idea – “strategy of forgetting” – has not become reality. In fact, I would expect from the consultancy agencies, the developers, and first of all the methodologists growing level of interest at this field. In fact this is slowly changing over last 2-3 years.

As well as twenty years ago, most of people naively believe, that “it will be done somehow later on”… But there are limits of this naive approach as well. Once morning we will be facing necessity to forget about all our former practices and simply quickly put together what to do.

I believe, that in next 10 years “strategy of forgetting” will be developed and will lead to large savings at the user side and will develop large business possibilities at the other side, that is not existing at the moment.

As I know, there are some isolated islands of enthusiasm.  Some of them can be found using “strategy of forgetting” and “obsolete data” throughout Google. If you have additional information, please, do not hesitate to contact me throughout LinkedIn.
