Turn Off The Comments

First of all if you use FaceBook for friends and family good for you. If you’re a political-social content creator, engagement through comments may not be a great idea these days. Learn more in Turning-Off-FB-Comments-Bob Davis Podcast 869.

Is It Really All About Engagement?

It’s especially relevant that social media experts tell businesses to seek out what they call ‘engagement’. Likes. Shares. Especially comments.

Political Social Content Creators Beware

These are great suggestions for wilderness guide services or seamstresses and hardware stores.

In contrast for content creators in the political and social sphere comments can be a huge problem. Listeners and subscribers know I have long had my issues with social media. Especially my favorite whipping boy FaceBook.

Take Action

After years of struggling with abusive, bullying and ignorant comments on my FaceBook business page I recently took action.

Unique Challenges

Content creators in the political arena have unique challenges when it comes to engagement. Especially on FaceBook. It’s time to talk about doing something about trolls, bullies and ignoramuses.

How’s Your Feeds?

Has suppressing comments on my page had a negative effect on engagement on my website or on my feeds? Learn more in Turning-Off-FB-Comments-Bob Davis Podcast 869.

My Way Or The Highway

Moreover is this a free speech issue? I say when it comes to social media pages, your role as an administrator of your page takes precedence. It’s your way, or the highway.

What Kind Of Engagement Do You Want?

Certainly I talked to advertising and social media experts before making this decision. In the end it comes down to what kind of engagement the creator wants. Do you want clicks to your website or more FaceBook likes.

No Snark Zone

Even more, users seldom bother to read, watch or listen to content. In contrast they don’t seem to have any problem dishing the snark on the content they didn’t read, watch or listen to, anyway.

Lock It Down

What does a creator do? I’ve decided to make commenting on my pages very difficult unless I know you personally.

We Have To Solve This Problem

Seems like it’s necessary to point out – again – that social media has become a fertile ground for manipulating the masses.

New laws and breaking up the social media giants won’t solve this.

We have to.

I’ve learned the importance of business networking these days. In addition to growing your small business, you meet great people. I’m joined by networking partner John Unverzagt in Fitness-Future-Business-Networking-Bob Davis Podcast 866.

Fitness Together

Especially relevant is the fact that John is the owner of two Fitness Together locations in Minneapolis and Saint Paul. You can click here for the link to Fitness Together.

My Business

Most noteworthy is the disclaimer at the beginning of this podcast. One of the things I do not do is sell interviews in my podcasts. I sell personal endorsement advertisements in my podcasts.

A Podcast Interview Prize

Recently as a prize at our networking group I gave away a podcast interview. John won that interview, and also happens to be a client. All the better for Fitness Together, right?

John’s Story

Even more John has a great story about his journey to becoming a fitness business owner. Furthermore his family’s hometown is also my family’s hometown. Plus I have my own fitness favorite, Yoga. Learn more here.

Future of Fitness

Certainly having one of my networking partners as a guest on the podcast is key. Moreover John shares some great observations about the Fitness Industry, his journey and the future of fitness.

First Generation Fitness Training Professionals

John has been in the fitness industry for a long time. As a result he lays claim to being among the first generation of professional fitness trainers. We’ll talk about the odyssey of fitness, from the first boxing gyms, to the big box gyms of today and especially the kind of focused personalized training Fitness Together provides in Fitness-Future-Business-Networking-Bob Davis Podcast 866.

Life Experiences

Finally we share some personal stories about the value of business networking for small businesses. For me, the opportunity to talk with other small business owners who have different life experiences and personalities is very important.

Fitness Has Become A Big Industry

In conclusion, fitness in general has grown to be a huge industry. What’s the future of Fitness?

Brand New Full Moon

I don’t think there’s anything like a brand new full moon on an August night. These days you take those small wonderful moments where you find them. We’ll talk about the moon and the night. Anything but ‘the News’ in Moonlight-WalkandTalk-EpsteinFreeZone-Bob Davis Podcast 854.

Artistic Business

I’ve been busy with details lately. The Bob Davis Podcasts is an artistic business. In addition, when I network I find explaining what I do can be a challenge.

Presentation Time

Moreover in my little networking group we do five minute presentations about our business twice a year. That means a Powerpoint or Keynote presentation. In this podcast I’ll take some time to explain how I do those. Hint. Practice makes perfect.

Listener Applause For My Non Partisan Approach

What’s especially relevant about this podcast is the experience I am beginning to have with podcast listeners and subscribers. People are beginning to applaud my non partisan approach to politics and society. It’s nice to get compliments on something I have been working so hard on.

Society Over Politics

Even more I’ll give you a little background on why I have decided to talk more about society, rather than advocating in the political day to day back and forth. Seems like the tweeters and magpies on the line screaming and yelling are forced to scream and yell louder to get your attention.

People Tune Out Partisan Political Talk

Moreover the tweets and shouts and theories also have to be ratcheted up to raise the stakes. In conclusion it’s now at the point where it is absurd. More and more people are telling me they have tuned it out.

Freeway Traffic Idiocy and A Full Moon

Hence a pleasant walk in the moonlight. Sometimes it’s a lot of fun to have a conversation about business presentations, freeway traffic idiocy and an amazing full moon. I never thought I would say that but it’s true.

Finally Some Electromagnetic Pulse Thoughts

Finally listeners have been telling me I forgot one pet disaster theory in the recent Prepper podcast. That theory? Electromagnetic Pulse. Learn more in Moonlight-WalkandTalk-EpsteinFreeZone-Bob Davis Podcast 854.

An Epstein Free Zone

So enjoy the full moon and this amazing late August weather while it lasts! Oh by the way. Welcome to the Epstein Free Zone.
