As Anaïs Nin wrote, “In chaos, there is fertility.”

Throughout world history we have seen many booms and busts in significant magnitudes.  For the first time in history we have seen a robust transformation of information and large data sets.   This has given almost anyone in the world with access to smart phone, computer and laptop the ability to communicate with some of the brightest and intellectual minds with a single key stroke.

Technology is creating new terms like social entrepreneurship, networked life, social network analysis, social influence marketing and new uses to the word convergence.

For example, you can meet key scientists responsible for studying social networks via Coursera (an online educational technology company) like:

sna2What is a networked life? or Social Network Analysis? In summary, it is the study of edges (coauthorship relationships) and vertices or nodes (a collection of individuals or entities) and how they connect were we begin to see the hidden architecture and value of social media where it can be used to predict branding a product or service, key business & financial trends and even global virus outbreaks.

In branding a business all the creative elements may be in place, however without the proper social network architecture of edges and nodes the value of the brand will remain constant.  Leveraging a social network with the proper strategy we can increase the value of a brand when combined with the proper context and content.

The proper strategy can create a song which whispers the hidden treasure of your brand.

The future belongs to those connecting key influencers collapsing the six degrees of separation opening up communication to key decision makers of influence.  The product of a social network of influence combined with your brand can result in an exponential mathematical movement of both brand awareness and value.

There are many moving parts in understanding digital architecture.  A nice responsive website, proper SEO and design are part of the equation like that of a hub in a wheel being the center piece of your strategy.  Creative social engagement and connecting the proper nodes with edges is what gives the brand value by the delivery of context and content stimulating demand.  This is where the “ROI” rests, having your brand being distributed across the a concentrated network of higher probability conversions.

The word for the right context is called “convergence” where we unite art, science, and spirituality.  Building these connections is one of the most important aspects of creative thinking.  Combining the proper context, content and images can be extremely powerful.

The creative dot connector recognizes this value and seeks to maximize a brand’s value through creating the proper edges with key nodes/vertices of influence to maximize the value of a brand like that of these scientists.

The proper digital architecture & strategy to build a brand in todays digital world includes:

  • Structurally sound responsive website
  • Proper SEO
  • Unique design which enhances your brand image
  • Blog – Creative new original content & context
  • Proper SEM
  • Social engagement across all major social channels (Google+, Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn) with creative content & context
  • Convergence where we unite art, science, and spirituality to enhance creative thought connecting on an intimate level

Sunlight through treesWe can all learn a lot from some of the masters throughout history.  As Leonardo da Vinci  wrote, “Principles for the Development of a Complete Mind: Study the science of art. Study the art of science. Develop your senses- especially learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else.”

A dot connector can see the light through the forrest.  Connecting the proper dots (ie) nodes/vertices with edges we can meet many interesting creative curators, writers, decision makers and people of influence who can share the value of your brand.
