Show Notes

Today we welcome Bryan Kramer to our podcast and we’re admittedly superfans so we felt kind of shy and giddy and elated all at once. We had a fun and enlightening conversation about what it really means to be social online, why you need to bring the joy and plenty more to inspire you.

And if you haven’t entered to win an autographed copy of his book “H2H”, do it now! We’re picking the 5 winners on Friday December 5th!

In This Episode We Talk About

  • Why you need to keep the fun in social media
  • How to be human and give people online the best of who you are
  • What it means to have a “social body language”
  • How to make the “unplanned planned unplanned” work in your business and more unique things you won’t hear anyone else say but Bryan!

I'm a business owner, content creator, podcaster and marketer. In 1999 I founded Rahvalor Interactive, a web and creative services production studio, with my husband and business partner Ralph. In 2011 we created Web.Search.Social, a consulting and marketing service line for small businesses. We also cohost the Web.Search.Social Podcast where we challenge the status quo of marketing and the Carbon Based Business Units podcast where we talk about the human side of being an entrepreneur. On any given day I wear the hat of project manager, consultant, social media manager and content marketer. My true passion is writing and in my spare time I'm busy planning my early retirement to Barcelona as a famous and wealthy novelist.

  • This podcast episode suitcase is so full, I can’t close the latches! 😉

    My two words for your interview with Bryan Kramer? “Invigorating” and “refreshing”. Of course, I felt nudged to add my [poetic] two cents worth:

    “HUMAN 2 HUMAN 2 HUMAN”
    (aka Bryan, Carol Lynn, and Ralph)

    Just listen to the crowd online
    To figure out what resonates
    Then challenge the status quo
    In the social marketing space

    Funny will always beat boring
    Feel free to laugh at yourself
    Leave controversial subjects
    At home on a safe little shelf

    Part of having a social mindset
    Means sharing in the moment
    Expressing original thoughts
    With fun as the key component

    Always be mindful of boundaries
    Be kind and filter what you say
    When speaking from your heart
    People respond in a positive way

    Functional and meaningful marketing
    Has the human touch at center stage
    To be successful in social media
    You have to know how to engage!

    Humanly, that is. 🙂

    • I don’t think I have seen (or ever will again) someone rhyme the word “resonates”. You really missed your calling on becoming a poet 🙂

      I LOVE your concluding line! That is my favorite part. At some point I said to myself you know, you should really start collecting Melanie’s poems so one day you can turn them into a book! And then I thought it’s ok, they will all be in the comments. But given how prolific you are, I’m afraid I may have my work cut out for me, lol. I’d better start now!

      PS: Love you lots. Thank you as always for brightening my day.

      • I thought about rhyming “procrastinate” with “resonate” — but it’s a word that would never befit you and Ralph or Web Search Social. And your comment, “I’d better start now!” has just proven my point and affirmed my reasoning. LOL!

        Thanks for your gracious sentiments, Carol Lynn, and I’m happy you love the concluding line. 🙂

        A book of poems. Now there’s a fun idea!

        • You know we could always have Téa’s son Leyton do illustrations for us 🙂

          • Yes. Yes, yes, yes! Leyton would be the PERFECT candidate for illustrations. I’m all for keepin’ it in the family. 🙂

  • Wow, thank you so much for the poem @melanie_kissell:disqus, that is the first poem I’ve ever received in the form of a response or otherwise. Made my day…. and you have a gift!

    • Melanie is the poet bomb 🙂 I have never known anyone to throw down rhymes the way she does.

  • Hi Carol,
    This is wonderful listening this podcast here. Bryan Kramer is my all time favorite.

    Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful podcast. This has really made my day.

    Have an awesome weekend ahead!
