Hanging out at LionMakerStudios

My wife was out of town and I just finished working. So I called up mr. LionMaker to see what he was doing and invited myself over (Yes I can do that)

I had to be there anyway because I was making his (new) website and I still needed some information on how content had to look like. I arrived at his place and saw  this pretty big crossbow lying on the floor. It was a cool toy, but at the same time a dangerous weapon. He said that it was broken… “But hey no worries the other one is repaired” he said. So this means he broke the first one and had it fixed and now the second one that was at his place was also broken. He apparently have tightened the crossbow and “accidentally” fired it, so the string, as we may call it that way, shattered.

As we discussed the plans of the LionMakerStudios website, we came to a lot of ideas to implement. One of them was adding a “Now Live” Twitch button / icon on the front page. I never heard about this Twitch, so I went on a research to know how this would work…

In the meantime I wanted to pull a prank with mr. LionMaker… I told him I could deliver him a “Verified” Twitter badge within minutes. Little did he know that I was just going to emulate it (temporary adding it with ‘html’ code)

After that he was editing the milestone video. He told me that it was so difficult to make because he wanted it to be perfect. And the result was there. Every time he finished a scene he would ask me if it was any good. I gave him my advise on particular parts of the video which need more attention (mostly sound scenes)

The video still needed a final editing work done by a colleague YouTuber before it could be published on YouTube.

It was nice being a part of it. Even as a ‘non-Mine-Craft-fan’ it was an experience full with action and suspense. link to the vid

Social Media marketing – why use it? why should i care? You should care because …

Social Media marketingSocial Media marketing – God send or a just a total menace?

As we see companies grow and other stay small is due to the fact that most of the entrepreneurs are not willing to adapt to the new wave of doing business. It’s so obvious that the older business owners are not open to the new media that is sweeping the world.

It’s because this generation doesn’t want to learn anything new, you can’t learn an old dog new tricks they say. Especially if they are not really willing to adapt to it. And you might have heard it once or twice that they did business for a long time (comfort zone)

here is an graph art about social media and it’s age group users

Anyways I’m not aiming this rant at these generation, but I want to point out that the new generation entrepreneurs should be using social media marketing and this is why…

SEO = social media marketing + linkbuilding + content + nice code

So as you can see in the header above, social media is 1/4 of SEO (search engine optimalisation / search engine ranking)

If you are not on top the SERP (search engine result page) then your business is likely to extinct.
