WHY DO I SEE SO MUCH R.I.P.’s ON MY TIMELINE?

Network Connectivity and Death

When I was younger, I remembered hearing news of people dying, whether from the adults around me or on television, if I happened to be at someone’s house when the death news was on because I didn’t have a television at my home. What stood out to me back then was that it was always someone I didn’t know, or If I knew them, they were not close to me. Hence, these deaths never bothered me, but lately, there has been a shift.

The Five Domains of Digital Transformation- Customer, Competition, Data, Innovation and Value

Digital strategy

Covid19 has forced many countries one can argue to undergo about ten years of digital transformation in one year. Something as basic as online learning, many countries, especially Small Developing States (SDI’s) in the Caribbean, have a hard time dealing with this. Both students and teachers alike are grossly underprepared for the “University of Zoom”. Then there is the over-focus on technology; we somewhat believe that digital transformation is all about the new technologies available to make life easier for all of us, however, it is much more than that. In the “Digital Transformation Playbook,” Professor David Rogers wrote that digital transformation is not about technology, but it is about strategy and a new way of thinking. He further went on to assert, that preparing for the digital age requires businesses and organizations to upgrade their strategic mindset more than their technology. Put simply, Digital transformation is about a shift in the mindset of the leadership of an organization.

How I Used Facebook To Promote and Sell Out My Masterclass

It has been one week since I hosted my Social Media Masterclass in Grenada. The feedback so far has been really great, and I am quite happy with how everything played out. There were some hiccups, areas for improvement, things that could have been done better. But overall it was a fantastic experience, one that will be repeated in roughly two months.

Initially, I wanted only 30 people in the class but based on the demand, I created space for 5 more people. I also did a second private session because I couldn’t fit any more people in the original class. So, how was I able to sell out my Social Media Masterclass? Well, I used Social Media. It would be weird if I was teaching a class on Social Media and can’t use the same social media to my advantage.

We are now consuming content daily on one of the many social media apps on our phone.

As a matter of fact, when we watch something on GBN or MTV or hear something on Boss FM or POWER, we take the conversation about that thing to Facebook. What does that mean for the business community in Grenada? It implies that Entrepreneurs and business owners need to understand the Grenadian digital media landscape and learn how to tell stories on social media to create an emotional connection with their customers/potential customers.
