"Being a GURU is like being powerful - if you have to say you are, you aren't" ...

Ack: Maggie Thatcher.

Welcome to this "quiet-zone" members-centric site. If you're not a member, you can do some things, but not a lot! If you'd like to join - by all means apply to join. If I can get a reading on you - I'll let you in! We're getting a few hundred visits a day here at the moment, which is picking up fast!

As you will see, I have started to carry "sponsored" links. My policy is simple: if I like it - I'll tell you about it.

I won't carry links to anything I don't consider worthy. Sometimes I get paid for these links.

If you'd like your company to be featured here - drop me a line and we'll make an arrangement. Painless.

Social Media Credentials

Since recognising the power of Social Media, I have worked studiously to understand the "influence" and "reach" aspects of this phenomenal movement of communication. Here are a few of the measures that I use to rate my progress.



Empire Avenue is a virtual stock exchange where the commodity being traded is Social Media Reputation - it's not as facile as it might seem - trust me!

Your Profile on This Site - what does it say?

We're getting several hundred visitors every week to the site now.

I can track their behaviour - and many of them are checking member profiles frequently.

Make sure your profile is up to date and interesting if you want click-throughs to your other places.

There were more than 100 out-bound clicks in the past few days alone.

The simplest way to make sure folks can know about you is to use your LinkedIn profile. Either cut and paste it or simply link to it, would be my suggestion.

Alternatively, just make sure that there's a url linkage there, which takes them to some place you want them to go!?
