A Year Ago Today…

January 9th, 2017, I lost my first (part-time) social media job when my then boss felt I wasn’t enough after failing to give me the tools I needed to be successful. I was devastated. By October 2017, I turned down a new contract with her company because I got a new job making two and a half times what she was paying me. Full time, with benefits. Let that be a lesson.

When you play me, you play yourself.

In surah Al-Falaq, Allah the Almighty tells us to seek refuge with Allah from certain things including:

_“And from the evil of the envier when he envies”_.
وَمِن شَرِّ حاسِدٍ إذا حَسَد.

The Messenger صلى الله عليه وآله وصحبه وسلم said:

A private life, is a safe life. Kill your ego!
Stop sharing your life with the world.

May Allah Almighty protect us all from the evil eye
Ameen.

Per the IRC fundraiser: I would LOVE to read a blurb about Steve Cap eviscerating David Duke (or any other white supremacist) a la Chris Evans on Twitter :) (Hi. Thanks for using your powers for good!)

This didn’t go quite in the direction I hoped when I started, but I hope you like it anyway, Anon! 

Steve got a Twitter – really, Steve was assigned a Twitter – when he joined the Avengers, but he didn’t use it very often. He didn’t care for it, and forgot about it for long periods of time. People followed him, but didn’t expect much in the way of content. 

Then, one day, a tweet popped up from his account.

You shouldn’t punch Nazis in the face. You will incapacitate a Nazi for longer if you punch in the side of the head or the genital area.

What followed was an eyebrow-raising, thirty-tweet essay in which Captain America laid out the basics of hand-to-hand combat and offered advice for most effective techniques. Every time he could have used the phrase “your opponent” or “the other person”, instead he used “a nazi”.

When someone pointed this out to him on twitter, he tweeted back, ‘A nazi’ is fewer characters.

It was an amazing afternoon, but the news coverage of Captain America’s brutal new twitter branding didn’t really hit a frenzied pitch until the following day, when someone tweeted, So you think I should be punched in the face for my opinions?

Are you a nazi? Steve tweeted back.

I voted for Trump.

There was a gap of about half an hour, and then Steve replied, #trump wants people I love to die; at least to be unprotected from violence. Why wouldn’t I strike someone threatening my loved ones?  

At which point the President of the United States tweeted, Pathetic Captain America wants to punch the landslide who elected me. Captain: you’re fired!

And Steve tweeted, Donald Trump is scared of me. Watching a sad old man try to fire someone he doesn’t employ is hilarious.

After which it appeared the President may have lost his mind; his tweets, growing increasingly erratic, eventually threatened a nuclear strike against New York unless Steve resigned.

Bring it on, I’ll punch that too, or didn’t you hear about what happened the last time someone tried? Steve tweeted.

At which point the President’s twitter went dangerously silent.

The following day, the White House announced that the President had been admitted to the hospital with 'cardiac issues’, and was expected to sign resignation papers at noon.

“I’m hearing that the rest of the GOP finally pushed him out. I hope you’re proud of yourself,” Tony said.

“Jarvis was the one who advised me on how best to bait him,” Steve replied, stretching smugly.

“Pence isn’t exactly a cake walk.”

“No, but he’s never going to try to nuke New York, and he’s not so irrational he’d announce the attempt on social media,” Steve said. “My job is to make sure dangerous psychopaths don’t threaten the United States. One down,” he added, grinning.

Guys this net neutrality thing is actually scaring the crap out of me…

How many of us come to the internet as an escape? I’m guessing since you’re on Tumblr, the answer is al of you. The internet, social media, is our way to get away from everything. If net neutrality gets repealed, it is going to affect EVERYTHING. Almost every aspect of our society is centered around the internet. You like video games? Have fun never playing with your friends online again. You need a job? Well you better start looking in the classifieds cuz good luck getting to a website that lets you look through job postings. You have any kind of internet store (Etsy, eBay, etc) good luck ever making a profit ever again. You’ll have to pay just to get to your own site, and then everyone else will have to pay to get to it as well. You take online classes? A lot of my homework is online through Pearson or McGraw Hill which run simulations and such to be able to actually get the homework done, so have fun paying for tuition and books AND the extra internet fee to have access high-speed enough to load the site. You’re in a class where the teacher’s way of explaining things just isn’t clicking? Well suck it up buttercup cuz you can no longer afford to Google any kind of help for your assignments/tests. You’re just a curious person who wants to use the internet to learn a language or how to dance? Sure, for an extra fee. I could keep going and going, but I digress. They’re basically trying to make us pay for our curiosity, our passions, our social connections, our way of life, and I for one do not think that’s okay.

THE SURE FOR WAY TO FIND A PASSION

Work Smart Show daily blog.

Yesterday’s blog touched on the idea of frictionless purchasing, first pioneered in physical stores and now being applied online. Today I wanted to present another idea, that of customer experience, and how we can apply this physical theory to our online business and interactions.

Think back to a store that you enjoy being in, whether when you were young or recently. For me it was the corner dairy store where my cousins, brother and I would get $0.50 mixtures of lollies and if you were lucky and ice block. Now to this day I could describe every corner and inch of this small store with its three aisles, colorful cigarette boxes behind the counter, newspapers at the door and friendly Chinese owner.

Now contrast this with an online store and we obviously have some ground to make up to have a comparable brand loyalty or returning customers. Short of having the absolute cheapest products, as in the case of Alibaba, which isn’t always possible, we need something more.

We need to create an experience for our customers while they are online in our store. This may be having a site that stands out, a video up front with something engaging as well as the products that we deliver. In the case of a company selling a physical product an example may be packaging this in such a way that is memorable. This could be with beautiful wrapping paper, a colored box and ribbons or a technical box that can be folded into something else such as phone stand or basic phone amplifier.

The specifics will of course depend on your individual business and product, whether physical or online, but what can you do at every stage to increase your customer’s experience?
