It may not be possible to automate all of SEO (or other business processes) with software, but that doesn’t mean you can’t avoid the chores in SEO. If you can document the processes, you can delegate them to virtual assistants (VA).
(A virtual assistant is an assistant you work with online rather than in person. VAs are typically contractors rather than salaried employees, so they’re also likely to be cheaper than a secretary if you don’t need them full time.)
Every now and then you know you that you bump into one of those video clips that you realise it’s just right. Every so often, you let serendipity do its magic and someone points you in the direction of one of those videos that, as you watch through, is just such a pleasure, and such a treat, you wish it could last for a lot longer. Sometimes you come across one of those videos that makes your fingers tingle quite a bit and you just cannot help but sharing it across through multiple venues (blog posts, tweets, social bookmarks, word of mouth, etc.etc.).
Yes, this is going to be one of those blog posts that talks about an amazing YouTube video clip that clearly describes how disruptive social computing can be in the traditional corporate world. Today I’m going to be sharing with you folks one of those videos that after you watch it you won’t be the same. Inspiration, to say the least, will blow your mind!
Well, I have not really wanted to admit this for a long time but the act of ‘selling’ something or being in sales is a not only a bad word but a dying ‘art’. I use the term loosely because the art of selling has always been based on some form of manipulation. Manipulation is not art. It’s deceptive and unproductive.
What has brought me to this conclusion? It’s pretty simple. I observe and I take in how things interact. For years, I have ‘sold’ many different things in the technology arena including hard products and services. This is not something I say lightly since I have roughly 20 years experience in sales environments of all stripes. From aggressive to consultative, from cold calling to lead follow up, from good to bad and all stops in between.
