Mass production of the Ford Model T. By bringing parts to the assembly line on a conveyor system and by limiting assembly workers to simple, repetitive tasks, the Ford Motor Company was able to produce thousands of Model T’s a day.

Because Japan Black paint dried the fastest. - 1908 Model T featured better gas mileage than most of the vehicles currently on the road. - In 1916, 55% of all cars were Ford Model T's.
As most people know, Ford produced the first assembly line for automobiles.
Currently the world's fourth largest automaker facing troubling times and an uncertain future.
Ford Motor Company announced it will accelerate its plans to transform itself into a maker of smaller and more fuel-efficient cars, changing both its North American manufacturing plans and its lineup of vehicles available in the United States.In addition, Ford's assembly plants near Mexico City, Mexico, and in Louisville, Kentucky, will convert from pickups and SUVs to small cars, including the Ford Fiesta, by 2011.
Ford will also introduce to North America six of its European small vehicles, including two versions of the Ford Fiesta, by the end of 2012. The Ford Fiesta Movement is a program that provides 100 agents across America with a 2010 Ford Fiesta to produce original content about the Fiesta. Beto Lopez is a part of a new age of ingenuity.
Ford is taking social media seriously. They are one of the first automobile brands to feature a director of social media - Scott Monty (www.scottmonty.com). Scott is well known in the blogosphere and thought leader. In this example Scott’s twitter page is featured and features both his personal brand and his relationship with Ford. Ford itself has an official corporate account: http://www.twitter.com/ford
The Fiesta Movement www.fiestamovement.com features all 100 agents and their content.
- Hi Beto, I’m here with an audience interested in learning more about how you’re using social media with the Ford Fiesta. 1. Is it true that you’re streaming live video right now? How else are you streaming video with the Fiesta? 2. Along with Justin.tv what other websites are you’re using to help Ford get the word out? 3. What have been the highlights to date? And other agents, any highlights worth sharing?

Get your arms around the fact that social media is here to stay. It is in its infancy but will absolutely become the core focus and hub for all marketing, fundraising and awareness efforts in the near future.
Gov 2.0 Expo Showcase is a one-day event that previews the larger Gov 2.0 Expo scheduled for May 2010.
Our goal is to highlight the projects that are leading the way, leveraging the web as a platform, driving transparency, participation and collaboration, and reducing costs while increasing value. The top four projects in each category will be presented at Gov 2.0 Expo Showcase. We’ll bestow a Govie Award on the top six projects, chosen the day of the conference.

Reality check, non-profits are using social media. But are they using it to its full potential? According to a 2009 social network survey, over 75% of registered 501(c)(3) charitable organizations are active on Facebook. Causes a “social giving” application on Facebook and MySpace is helping nonprofits raise funds. In its first year, Causes registered 12 million users who had supported 80,000 non-profit causes worldwide. And $2.5 million had been raised for 19,445 different 501(c)(3) charitable organizations. Last week Causes celebrated its second birthday and launched a new program titled “Birthday Wish”. This program enabled users on social networks to use their birthday as an opportunity to raise funds for a non-profit in need. As opposed to receiving an digital gift such as an e-card or social gift, a users can suggest a small donation to a non-profit in the causes network. In only 4 days the program raised over $882,000. It’s not just facebook! When used correctly YouTube is an ideal tool for nonprofits to get the word out and raise funds. A YouTube Nonprofit program is currently available in the United States and the United Kingdom. Once accepted, Non-profits are placed in a special non-profit directory and allowed to overlay a custom ad to drive traffic to their website.
A video that explains the non-profit program and features participants. Are you in the program? Let us know how it’s working for you at www.davidperry.com
Keeping momentum and continuning the conversation is key. Ronald McDonald House Charities is doing a great job of utilizing the YouTube Non-profit program and communicating with visitors on their website. This is an example of a landing page on www.rmhc.org. The example invites users to find them on other social media sites, it also explains how they use these external properties (ie. Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc..).
A list of external properties that Ronald McDonald House Charities is using.
charity: water is a great case study of how social media can affordably project a message, build a following and raise funds. All of the copy on their website is very easy to share with others. It’s clear, compelling, creative and original.
charity: water is a non-profit bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. Since the inception in August 2006, charity: water has funded over 1,300 projects in 14 countries, serving over 740,000 people. Just $20 can give one person clean, safe drinking water for 20 years.
Right now, 1.1 billion people on the planet don't have access to clean and safe drinking water.
A group of private donors, foundations and corporate sponsors help pay for the everyday costs of running charity: water so 100% of public donations go directly to water projects. charity: water proves each water project, connecting donors here with the people they’ve helped in developing nations. Using GPS technology, photography, video and the Internet, charity: water proves all work done in the field, telling stories of communities changed by clean and safe drinking water.
THE FACTS. THE SOLUTIONS. CLOSING THE LOOP - PROVING IT. 100% OF PUBLIC DONATIONS GO TO WATER PROJECTS.
42,000 PEOPLE WILL DIE THIS WEEK FROM DISEASES RELATED TO POOR DRINKING WATER. 90% OF THEM WILL BE CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 5.
A video on the charity water YouTube Channel. This video raised over $10,000 in one day with the YouTube Program ad overlay option. The ad was clicked and it drove traffic to a landing page to accept a donation. A great example of using video to drive donations.
Charity: water uses tumblr. Tumblr is a re-envisioning of micro-blogging, a subset of blogging that uses quick, mixed-media posts. The service is free to use and easy to setup.
38% of SMB owners are on a social network
Overview of the Wax Obama campaign produced by www.DavidPerry.com
This is a landing page designed by Andres Acosta - www.waxmuseum.com/obama The page featured an itinerary of where Wax Obama would travel on his way to the “West Coast” White House and how you could win a free pass to the museum simply by Tweeting or posting on Facebook.
Real or Wax? A photo of Wax Obama at the “West Coast” White House.

Arriving at the SF Ferry Building
The day before this photo, President Obama endorsed his Ford Hybrid during a speech to leading automakers on the fuel economy.
At the end of a Rose Garden ceremony unveiling new mileage standards, Obama stepped back from the podium, then threw in an impromptu plug for his hybrid Escape sport utility vehicle.
\"By the way, I just want to mention, I think I still have my Ford parked in Chicago,\" Obama said. \"It's a Ford hybrid, it runs great, you guys should take a look.\"
Ford Chief Executive Alan Mulally, standing next to the president, pumped his fists in the air as the crowd laughed.
As he turned to leave again — perhaps realizing there were executives from nine other automakers standing behind him, including GM and Chrysler — Obama threw in one more aside.
\"But there are also some outstanding hybrids and energy-independent cars represented up here, so I didn't want to just advertise for one,\" he said.
Facebook comments and tweets covering the #waxobama campaign.

Why? Encourage this in your life, business and relationships with others. We’re all individuals on the social web and individuality works. It’s great for conversational marketing and your personal brand is here to stay.
May 10, 1908 – Mother's Day is observed for the first time, at Andrew's Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia.
Visit: www.twitter.com and make sure you have a personal account. (don’t skip your personal brand, make sure you assert your individuality)
Does your employer have a twitter account. If you are one of the people in charge of this account make sure you list in the description that you (@myalias) are one of the people responsible.
What do all these twitter terms mean? The best way to describe twitter terminology is to think of the way you use email.
A tweet is similar to the subject line of an email. When used correctly both an email subject line is short, clear, and compelling.
A reply in twitter is just like a reply in email with one exception, any public reply can be accessed by others in Twitter Search and Newsfeeds. Treat replies like you would a reply on a public forum or message board. Another good example is writing a comment on a blog or a web article that is available to everyone.
A Direct Message is a reply to another twitter user and can be compared to a private reply in email.
A Favorite is something you would like to highlight and save. A favorite can be compared to the use of “stars” in gmail or simply the act of saving an email.
A retweet is similar to “Forwarding” an email. You repeat the tweet and give the original twitter user credit.
Hashtag or #term is a way of grouping tweets about a specific subject. This is similar to an email iistserv or internal email for a specific group.
If you have a group account, let everyone know where and how they should be spending their time on twitter. What activity should you prioritize?
