developing a tutorial program

a year and a half ago I initiated a training program for a select group of individuals – since then, I’ve learned more, the internet has changed, and the program became outdated…

so I’m now revamping those videos, creating a new tutorial course, and developing the public individual strategies for a book. I’ll post here again when I’m done…


Last year…

Last year I worked through a series of videos that were my first attempt at a step-by-step guide to what I’ve come to call Online Social Optimisation for thee Public Individual.  Ideally it would be a way to augment interaction with the net in such a way as to provide a constant stream of movement in the semantic space around an individual, a way of flooding relevance for later indexing.




Because it seems to be what the search engines out there find most interesting – and because keeping the search engines happy provides an endless stream of attention.  Both of these aims happen to overlap with those of the internet marketers out there who feel like PPC is burning a hole through their start-up loans and venture capital, and are investing in social media outreach and search engine optimization as a better return on investment in that advertising space.


So this year I’m building a whole net set of video instructions, and am compiling all my research, tricks, hacks, and timely tips back into an even better audio and visual presentation on lifestreaming approaches to constant contact strategies for the coming mobile, real time web.  This is the first time a lot of these techniques will be freely available, and all of this will be tied up into a book by, I’m hoping, the end of next year – publisher willing.

Public Individual

Today I spent a great deal of time working on PublicIndividual.com – my repository of SEO and social media integrated marketing knowledge… eventually I’ll have a full system defined for people to use in conjunction with the teories and methods that can be taken from The Art of Memetics – for now there’s the basic templates and links to start anyone interested in SEO or controlling one’s digital shadow in great detail. Also, I just finished a post on Alterati you might be interested in… I’ll be speaking at Esozone in Portland OR Oct. 10-12th and look forward to seeing friends from last year and new people from the internets… Tomorrow I’m taking the freaking day off to pick apples and have fun.


For those who are interested, I’ve made PublicIndividual.com a repository for the tools I use in social media optimization and search engine marketing. Using those tools to their full potential will absolutely revitalize any marketing strategy, but I’d prefer it if it’s kept among the artists and musicians. Let the business folk and network marketing crowd continue to pay each other to do the impossible while I and my readers do it right, for the long term.

Oh, and read Pizza SEO – Justin Boland does not pull his punches.
