Social media, the online world of social networks for business.

Some would call me a geeky nerd, well I am too handsome for that, however it is no denying I have alot of things in common with that category, moreso though I have had this life long involvement in communicating and networking in one form or another.

It started first by corresponding with a son of two doctors who lived in Romania in the early 1960’s, from there I learnt how to make chemicals to process film and paper to make photos, I progressed to video as soon as the Government took off the license restrictions. Today more than ever before communication in the business world on a global scale has changed the landscape for ever and is pretty much the core to what I do.

Would your company like a free blog like this blog here at SimDeck. I don’t mean the design but the concept, where you can communicate daily with your customers and visitors, where they can talk with you, where you can share with others. Bring your brand alive in the world of social online media.

If you book a SimDeck Simulator for your next commercial event, I’ll personally spend one hour with you compilmentary, showing you how you can get up and running within an hour for virtually zero cost with your own company blog.

For many though this social networking, Face Book, Blogging and a zillion other avenues must seem daunting to the new comer. Simulation racing and gaming is one industry where we have been online and very active as a community, we don’t just talk and race, but a huge amount of the networking is around problem solving, computer programmes, networked racing – imagine a global talk fest all talking at once,,,well we have the similar where it is talking and racing!, the various online communities all have their heros, champions, contributors, hosts. For example, if we had to rely on walking to a retail shop to get our software and that was the sum of the community interaction, then the simulation industry would be nothing ressembling what it is today.

From a business perspective, simulation & gaming is probably further down the track in this respect than many other industries, nevertheless we still face many core business growth, brand, customer experience, communication issues just like you.

I thought these two very valuable links might help your company to enter the world of Online Business Social Networking.
