Too Many Technical Terms

Francis Cassady 113019Seriously?A vulture boards an airplane, carrying two dead raccoons. The stewardess looks at him and says, 'I'm sorry, sir, only one carrion allowed per passenger.'Two fish swim into a concrete wall. One turns to the other and says 'Dam!'Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, so they lit a fire in the craft. Unsurprisingly it sank, proving once again that you can't have your kayak and heat it too.Two hydrogen atoms meet. One says, 'I've lost my electron.' The other says 'Are you sure?' The first replies, 'Yes, I'm positive.'Did you hear about the Buddhist who refused Novocain during a root canal? His goal: transcend dental medication.There was the person who sent ten puns to friends, with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did.Too Many Technical TermsAs you know IMers that have been online for years can gain considerable internet marketing knowledge.The bad thing is that you can talk over the head of a general audience, interested audiences, as well as newbies.When I started five years ago I didn't have a clue.I retired from a Major Telco and needed a of supplemental income to fund the bucket list.I read and read some more,but I thought I'd understood some IM material, I didn't.Some articles that I read were just using too many technical terms,and I immediately thought that the subject matter was above me.However, I thought if I kept delving into internet marketing material,I would eventually understand.Obviously, as in any field of endeavor,you can talk about a subject and there will inevitably be persons who have an interest,but are not quite understanding some of the concepts.So there you go talking over your audience's head-hardly intentionally.The vernacular in the phone company was strange and complicated,really a separate language that only the Telco- veterans understood.if you were a newbie, you'd thought you'd entered a different country. so it continues online,as new terms are constantly introduced,you learn and you try your best to pass on the information in a lucid way.But the issue is what the general audience thinks "is this person for real,what are they talking about"?As I thought exactly the same thing, six years ago.So some of the veterans who've been online in the internet marketing field don't have an issue with your material,with your use of IM terms.They'll absorb the relevant information,but to some you're speaking in another language, so be careful....better mindful.An experienced marketer will be excited to talk about a new or a very interesting internet marketing topic.Come on now... go ahead lay it out the best you possibly can.Some people will follow you,they'll get your meaning,but you must use simplistic language and ordinary terms and words.If you are talking over their heads, you'll never know,and on the internet you must be much more careful, and you can't pick up on body language.You explain the current issues the best you can, in hopefully a simple and the most concise way.The key is get the message across in simple terms explaining the value that's in your proposition.So how do you keep your site pertinent and how do you take the pulse of your audience?You always get objective opinions from persons you know,get them to identify obstacles and objections for you.Be sure that what you've said inspires in a simplistic way, that all will understand.Always ask the person, who's using your site, for feedback.Ask the visitor how you can improve your page,and what you can do to make your site clearer and more engaging.While you won't get answer back every time, the ones you do get back,will be of great value to you as a marketer, and some of the best marketing feedback you've ever gotten.The professional internet marketer follows the visitors through their website,using important analytic and metric tools.Here's some of the best:ClickyMixPanelJetpack by WordPress.comGoogle AnalyticsParse.lyWordpress Power StatsWordpress StatisticsCrazy EggKissmetricsUserTestingThe professional internet marketer always communicates in a clear-cut simple way and adds value in the process.No one is guessing,or trying to figure out what you just said.Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others. Jack WelchThank you so much for visiting my IBOtoolbox site and reading my Blog, please leave a comment,I truly appreciate it.

    Great humour Francis and an equally impressive message in your main text. You're right, technical lingo is pervasive on the internet among geeks and other like-minded techies, they forget that ordinary users have no idea what they're refering to. This is where communication and selling (as in selling yourself) skills come in. Simple no-nonsense language works with everybody in any situation. Most times you need to be uneducated in order to be smart!

    After reading your post today Francis, the words of my mentor come to mind "Keep it super simple." I believe when you keep it simple and as you brought out in your post, too many technical terms that many IMers don't understand will not work best for you. I agree that asking for feedback when people visit your website is vital. Valuable information for sure.
