From the moment I saw them, I fell in love with video games.

We had a commodre 64 as my first home computer.

The day I plugged in the first cassette and picked up that joytstick for the first time.

My life changed forever.

Moving the stick and watching the character move on screen was a revelation.

One my tiny mind couldn't compute, but boy was it fun.

From then on I was hooked.

From Manic Miner to Prince of Persia and all the consoles and home computers in between.

I have had a life long fascination with them and the characters you control in environments that become giant immersive stories.

Inheriting a virtual persona is liberating.

Social media is exactly like a video game.


You have a platform with a clearly defined set of parameters.

An always on persistent universe.

In which you are a player, with an avatar. 

Racing to amass followers.

All the while interacting and creating conversations with your audience. 

And here’s the important bit.

To create revenue. 

Now the question is are you a casual player?

Or a pro team?

Pro players live, eat, sleep and train together.

They don’t leave things to chance, they have a clear purpose and a clear goal in mind.

Which is exactly what your sales and marketing teams need when they approach social.

No strategy and you’ll be doomed to fail against opposing teams.

But this is just kids stuff.

Yep we hear that a lot about social, it’s just for kids.

You don’t actually expect us to do business on it do you?

But only if you play it right, with heart, purpose, passion and a clearly defined strategy.
