The level of chatter surrounding a service or product has always been important in helping to determine the success of an advertising campaign. “Buzz” is a word usually used in relation to viral marketing and word-of-mouth promotions. Potential opportunities to create buzz around a product include reviewing incoming traffic to a Web site from organic links and determining what new keywords can be associated with the site to increase traffic.
Resulting from new connections or from bypassing disconnects among stakeholders. In Orbital Strategy, it means to design expressions and programs that can intensify interactions in the direction of new positive collaboration, as opposed to letting the drift or the default system rule the relationship. The opposite of the default relationship. The client’s situation after strategic intervention; it is intentional; It is subject to wanted interactions that could lead to an desired direction.
Individuals working together with a common purpose/destination to achieve a shared direction or desired outcome. In Orbital Strategy, it is the most positive interaction, leading to alignment on issues and ultimately positive outcomes. Collaboration is essential in today’s communications schemes.
Type of actor. Acting as associated in your activity, helps reshape your outcomes in an sphere of common interest. Their interests are alignable.
Belief that individual intentions alone will not explain collective action and that joint action requires joint shared intentions. In Orbital Strategy, this means going from the corporate/organizational intent to a collective one, where interaction and collaboration has common ground and meaning.
Forces, conversations, perceptions, working against our desired outcome. Opposite of collaboration. Disconnected actions. Ongoing trajectory en route to collide against our desired outcomes.
Through the use of internally developed and proprietary tools, such as performance scorecards and trend spotting models, we are able to drill down and deliver a tangible, accountable picture of the competitor landscape. This allows for accurate benchmarking, best practice identification and learnings on what audience response is like.
A spoken exchange of thoughts, opinions, and feelings. Within Orbital Strategy, we consider the conversation an expression of collective intentionality. The content of the conversation reflects the perceptions and beliefs of a given community (the story) . The Conversation evidences current thinking through Verbatim. We distinguish “my conversation”, which is the inner voice in the mind that expresses the way I analyze situations and my opinions; and “the conversation”, where the actors exchange in a more assertive way.

Unsettling matters that keep us from interacting in an assertive way. Negative believes and interpretations we hold to be true and continuously validate in our minds.

Today it is possible for Web sites to determine the physical location of site visitors and display content specifically relevant to them.

Communication that can be achieved 1:1 or 1:1000 without intermediaries.
Keyword phrases are search terms you believe people will use on search engines to find you. “Keyword phrase” is more accurate than “keywords” because searchers almost always use more than one word when looking for a business (the most common being, product/service + location).

Type of actor. Acting as non supportive of any position. Inhibited for whatever reason. Indifferent, not informed. Potential ally or critic.

Part of the present that is rooted/stuck in the past and that doesn’t allow forward looking actions. The past-present is contrasted with, and defined by, the present-future in which Orbital Strategy Journey occurs.
A podcast is a digital audio file delivered over the Internet, and is technically different from a videocast. Podcasting technology is low cost, making it easy and inexpensive for a business to create and distribute podcasts.

–Abrupt change from one energy level to another, especially such a change in the orbit of an electron with the loss or gain of a quantum of energy.
Orbital Strategy tool used to outline context, collisions and collaborations in order to envision new a direction in the relationship with the stakeholders. The framework analyzes and compares default relationships to caused relationships through the filters of: transparency, velocity, participation and social conscience.
In our view, it’s a relationship with one or more actors. Building, leveraging and sustaining these relationships is the ultimate goal of our Orbital Strategy. Technology platforms will continue to change, so the rapport we construct with our key actors aims to build sustainable relationships that will evolve over time, regardless of the context. Relationships are a critical piece of Orbital Strategy.
Reflected as an outcome: it is our decision to move forward together to reshape the present–future. In Orbital Strategy, a shared direction has the inspired and secured collaboration of actors for reaching our destination.
SOCIAL NETWORK MARKETING:
