Hi Bloggers, Readers and All Who Pass Through!

Change

All Change is Good

This is my attempt at Freestyle writing. The topic is Change.

Every day I make a change. I change my clothes day to day. I change my shoes, my socks my undies. Change is consistent with all of us. Over the past few weeks I have contemplated change for my blog, website, You Tube show etc, etc. The purpose of all this is to adjust for my audience.

I am constantly reading blogs, advice and watching videos about what works, what doesn’t work and why. I get several news letters a day about tips, tricks, spins, and zings that will WoW, Awe and make my numbers go through the roof. Yet what I see is change. I see that I have to change my platform design. I must change colors, change fonts, change looks and appearances; Change style of writing and so much more. I ask is this the kind of change that is needed to be a Social Media Super STAR? And if all these experts, gurus, geniuses and specialist have the answers to online marketing then, WHY ARE MORE PEOPLE CREATING CONTENT ABOUT THE SUBJECT? [Yes I know I am screaming]

I have worked myself into a tizzy trying to make changes that may not necessarily need to be made. The truth is I just want to talk. I want to share my experiences online. I want to meet different people without leaving the comfort of my home. I want to entertain people by creating video that they like and enjoy watching on a dull day. And making a little rainy day change in the process [because that is the most I have made thus far] doesn’t hurt.  I want to help people learn something, whether it be, how to upload a song to how to download a video.

My focus when I started this project was to help artist find exposure. I wanted to build audiences for people with talent and build my own audience. Over these past months I have achieved great things. I have met people I never thought I’d even cross paths with driving down the highway.

So to conclude this freestyle about Change, I think I will change my direction, one more time. This time I’m changing to fit my desires and goal. Because truth is, no one really knows what’s going on. As long as we have fun doing it, who cares.

Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. More shows, reviews and a few tutorials are on the way. So stay tuned and Come Experience Online with Quepea!

 

Farmville a game very popular on Facebook, is pulling in the people and the advertiser.

My partner of 19 years loves the game on Facebook known as Farmville. She plays that game daily. She has about 200 plus friends on

Facebook and almost all of them are Farmville players.
The other day I was doing some research regarding the value of Facebook as an entertainer. I was looking at status updates and noticing

that not very many people were responding to things I would post. Yet it was not only what I posted, it was also happening, (or not

happening) for others in my circle.

So I began to ask, why is it that my partner always gets people on her page to interact? What is making her so popular amongst her crew?

Well as she and I talked the answer came to me “FARMVILLE”. It’s the games. Facebook created a game that has pulled in a group of

people that live for the game.

So I looked into more facts about my theory. I did a search on Fritolay to see how many people like them. Their just chips and snacks

right.
Well to my surprise over 2 million people on facebook like them. Then I find out that Fritolay offered a truck to the Farmville

community in exchange for a LIKE. So that leads me to believe that Fritolay paid Facebook or someone else to be a part of this game so

that they could attract a fan base. HMMM. Pay to Play.
So I wondered if Fritolay had not done this would they still have as many likes as they do? I seriously doubt it. This type of marketing is

done all the time.
I bring this up to make a point to the indie artist community and those that follow or don’t follow them. Big business can afford to pay

for attention. They can buy the ads, the audience and what ever else they choose.

If you are looking to pull the attention of the masses to you as an entertainer, you are going to need to understand these tricks and

others and duplicate them on a low scale budget. Not every indie artist can afford ads, promotions, or services that will help get their

name out. Therefore you are going to need to find a way to bring the attention of the audience your way using similar methods.

The reality of it all is if you want to make it to the top of the list QUICKLY you are going to have to Pay in order to Play.
