The missing piece in social media (digital) strategy - SIG

The new breed of digital marketers are here! They are called "Social Media Strategists". Social media strategy involves businesses generating social media actions (likes, tweets, checkins etc) on their own business page (Facebook Fan page, Twitter account or Instagram account). The reason? to ensure that a business page receives adequate attention on the news feed of social media users.

These strategies include devising plans to post rich content that will enable loyal customers to perform social media actions and hence provide a mechanism for customers to tell their friends about a certain company.

Now all this is well and good. But the customer loop is incomplete here, as loyalty is only being properly provided by the customer, not the business. For example: a certain customer may be liking a business' posts once a day, but he/she is not getting anything back. Until now...let me introduce - SIG.

SIG (the Social Intelligence Grabber) is an engine that allows businesses to show their appreciation to customers who have performed social media actions on their business page. It works by collecting social media actions, then rewarding customers according to these actions. Customers are then able to use these reward points for whatever the business wishes. 

SIG is able to be integrated into any loyalty platform and allows easy customisation of points. For example: a business may choose that a like is worth 2 points or 5 points; or that a share is worth 10 points or 20 points. 

This awesome product is available from CSB Engage, for more information about it, please visit the CSB Engage website.

As one of the lead programmers on this project, I can tell you now that what we have done here is a product that is never seen before on the market. It is bleeding edge that will allow you to turn your social media strategy into loyalty!

Thanks for reading!

from zero to production in eighty days

When I mean zero, I literally mean zero. A brand new project, a PO that's new to IT, no existing processes in place and a small team of four including myself and the PO.

The departmental organisation we were working for doesn't have any developers, scrum masters, product owners working for them. Everything they did was either done by another department or outsourced completely.

This is a story how we went from zero to production in eighty days.

My first time speaking at a conference

Since time immemorial we humans have valued the art of public speaking. Today, I want to share with you my experiences in speaking at conferences for the first time. Recently, I spoke at both DDD Melbourne and DDD Perth. Both of which were positive experiences that I learnt a lot in.

Have You Ever Produced Negative Value in a System!?

As developers we encourage our product owners to order the priority of their backlog in order of value. However, every time a new feature is implemented by a development team, there is a certain degree of risk associated with the introduction of that new code. Namely, risk of breaking another part of the product and maintenance cost. When a development team pulls in a new feature to implement there is a certain acceptance of this risk. In many cases, the risks that arise due to additional code complexity doesn't justify the value added by the new feature itself, so the development team can start implementing it.

Are there scenarios where the value added to a software product can be negative though?
