What is Oldtron Podcast? Comic books, comedy…ish…yet another brand for this four year audio adventure across AIN’T IT COOL NEWS, POPTARDSGO.com and…that’s it really. We’re good, not that good. I’m Rob Patey. I’m hosting Mark Miller. We have been known as Optimous Douche and Ambush Bug, but we’re not proud of it. JD, our third member is ashamed of Bug’s past so he runs whenever he hears the bells of Uncle Drunkell Miller chime.

Sorry for the coughing, I’m sick.

“Oh, You’re So Pretty” and Other Lessons in Sociological Interactions for Marketing to Capitalize On or Adamantly Avoid!

Marketers if you want to win in social and content marketing I encourage you to get your head out of your laptops and eyes on the world around you.  

Here’s some recent epiphanies:

DIVERGE FROM: “Oh My God, You’re So Pretty!” In Social 

Usually squealed by the clearly two best looking women in the room. It’s a test of the opponents’ equal merit and mettle in Darwinistic Dominance. 

We as marketers live in this same false platitude passiveness with #, favorites and retweets. 

We’re preening one another ti test and if dominance demands it copy and feed off one another. 

We are so transfixed by preening, the market fades away to the backdrop softly saying “screw you guys and goes we’re going to another home for info not # parity.” 
DIVE INTO: Being the Duckey of Content 

Every sociological construct these days has a Duckey. This is in reference to the irreverent yet wisely observational and instantly witty  character played by Jon Cryer in The 80s Classic,  “Pretty in Pink.”

Quick, name another character as fast the Duck Man if you’re a child of the Hughes cinematic era of Film.

Anywhere and everywhere, the freak off the leash turns heads and burns the most indelible impression. 

Is your content Duckey, or Blllllaine?  In a commodity market, you better don a shark skin jacket. 

DIVERGE FROM: Telling customers they are so beautiful they’ve been running through your CRM alllll day. 

Only the most comely of face and innocently dopey can sling a pick up line. 90% of the time, these whimsical words of cut to the chase sound like you will end up eventually stalking the other person.

For those of you slinging emails to your database on mass volume with the same ole’ lines you will only end up going home lonely. Likewise for social. Sling bullshit originally or not at all and quickly start quoting knowledge if you go into this danger zone you sexy product you. Also let your prospects breathe a little from the barrage of your undying affection to reach them. If you have a new line, cool, head in again for the kill.

Anything you have to add Wordies? 

Drats! Been Social Botted Again!

My belief in social media as the great disseminator of enlightened information for the masses is truly becoming overpowered by the relentless pursuit of profiles in search of simply gaining more reach with absolutely nothing to say other than the plea to continue this insipid chain letter to infinity. Jane, get me off this crazy thing if our progeny are simply going to collect other humans online like a Pokemon tournament.

Bots, these people are literally biological bots seeking to ride the coat tails of the exponentially smaller group of true content drivers.

Hey, I’m part of the problem. As a B2B marketer for almost 20 years (zoinks), I was scoffing over hashtagging before Falon and Timberlake. Today though, dark humor amusement has become more bemoaning at the fact our hashes are mastubatory metric blinders. We think our hashtags are wooing buyers, versus the true reality of us all just entertaining the competition. Go ahead right now social media managers and minions: Search a coveted # in your marketing lexicon. 90% is the competition right? That’s why content marketing is now king. You’ll get more brand devotion and conversions by tweeting assets that spark a buyer’s personal interests as well as the business of your digital messaging. We marketers are better than the drones I mentioned above, but lets not have too many delusions of grandeur about our stations being much loftier. Have fun gaming search everyone because we are not gaining brand zealots. 

    Going back to the basic biological bots I mentioned earlier, I’ll say right now that the use of social media measuring tools exponentially increases their desire to be in your network. Careful all. I lead a dual life publishing as much in B2b channels for salary as I do geek culture channels for fun. These dummy profiles are dragging down my relevance appearing before those I truly value seeing my tweets. I gained earnest followers by always linking to more germane content. My trusted views are being hijacked in apperance algorithms by a group seeking to game the system for prominence, profit and often times both.

    I love the potential of social media so much that I am driven to drive away these social barnacles or battle these silent bloated bisons crapping on our golden content fields. Automation will help, but we must exert our our own consumer free will to finally take our short messaging to places where these gadflys can be swatted away or simply can’t find. 

    Weighted content feeds are most welcome, but we must start finding ways to weed out those who are essentially making these helpful algorithims worthless. Don’t follow me. Please! 

    What say you fellow content producers and social socialites?

    What is Oldtron Podcast? Comic books, comedy…ish, but most importantly it’s a sign of respect. Since the short, but sturdy stick of our usual geeky podcast tripod,  JD, is taking a break I don’t want to sully his poptards brand with my editorial flippancy. If I Rob Patey be behind the editing, OLDTRON PODCAST should bear the shame.

    Yes, this is Spoiler Alert. But worse.
