  • Bad Lady Gaga. Pick up the phone. In the book…A platform enables. Helps others build value.Helps users create their own networks, products, communities, _____.EX: Google maps and the mashup we mentioned.
  • Some examples of platforms can be seen here.Digg…aggregation of news stories. OR your Facebook/LinkedIn/Twitter stream…Wikipedia…while still not allowed as an “official” source for scholarly research, pretty accurate.Based on the idea of the collective wisdom of crowds.CAVEAT – sometimes people are just wrong.Orlando Tip: NEVER followed the crowd at theme parks. Most people incorrectly believe they have to wait in line and don’t notice the empty area is actually the other line…Facebook platform is open for applications…Which unfortunately can lead to things like FARMVILLE.

  • Google Rule #1
    EVERYBODY NEEDS
    GOOGLE JUICE
    “It isn’t what you say about yourself. It’s what Google says about you.”
    Chris Anderson, Author, The Long Tail
  • WHAT’S GOOGLE JUICE?
    • The magic elixir that makes Google value you more because the world values you more
    • If your website can’t be found, you might as well not exist
  • DO I HAVE GOOGLE JUICE?
    Log-in to Google and search for:
    • Your Community Name + “Economic Development”
    • Your Community Name + “Business,” “Business Expansion,” “Business Relocation,” “Demographics,” “Foreign Direct Investment,” “Incentives,” “Maps,” “Office Space,” “Site Selection,” “Workforce”
    • Your Organization Name (including variations and misspellings)
  • RATING YOUR “GJQ”
    (Google Juice Quotient)
    NO JUICE = No Sign Of Your Website On The First Page Of Search Results
    GOOGLEY = Website Consistently In The First Page of Search Results
    GOOGLIER = In Top Five Results
    GOOGLIEST = We’re #1
  • HOW DO I GET MORE GOOGLE JUICE?
    Four Rules
    Get Others To Link To Your Website…Google will notice their links and give you more juice.
    Keyword Content…Identify keywords prospects use to search for you and prominently display.
    Avoid Fancy Technology That’s Makes Your Site “Dance And Sing”…Google won’t recognize this and it will annoy prospects.
    Give Every Page A Logical, Permanent Address
  • Google Rule #2
    MIDDLEMEN ARE DOOMED
    “For all middlemen the clock is ticking and the question of value is looming.”
    Jeff Jarvis, Author,
    What Would Google Do?

    Car salesmen
    Insurance brokers
    Head hunters
    Advertising agencies
    Travel agents
    Real estate agents
  • According to Jeff Jarvis:
    Real estate agents are more distrusted than tabloid writers
    “Eliminate advertising. Or at least fire your ad agency.”
    “…travel agents (oh, sorry, they’re already nearly extinct.”
  • Hi. I’m an economic developer. I’m here to help.

  • Google Rule #3
    DO WHAT YOU DO BEST AND LINK TO THE REST
    “…the link forces specialization.”
    Jeff Jarvis, Author,
    What Would Google Do?
  • From general to specialized
    Linking is changing the structure – moving generalization in media to specialization
    Specialization creates:
    Stronger USP’s
    Mass of “niches”
    Opportunities for collaboration
  • Examples of ED’s leveraging what others do best
    Mapping =
    Google Mashup
    Real Estate =
    Third Party
