Cheryl’s story is nothing short of amazing – she’s an attorney who worked on some of the technology industry’s largest acquisitions turned food evangelist. The transition happened when Cheryl suffered some disastrous and undiagnosed illnesses personally and with her child. At issue were food allergies and sensitivities that were devastating her life and her child’s life.
На момант падзеі ў мяне быў велізарны стрэс - я рэзка пашырыў свой бізнес, упусціўшы некаторыя чаканні, я губляў бацьку ад лейкеміі і змагаўся са сваім вагой, якая выйшла з-пад кантролю. За наступны год я набраў больш вагі, у мяне было 2 пераломы пазваночніка, якія перашкаджалі мне хадзіць ці займацца спортам, і я проста адчуваў сябе няшчасным.
Два месяцы таму гэта змянілася, калі сябар, Бэн Маккан, had a ‘soft’ intervention with me. I joined his weight loss center – which transformed my diet – focusing on increased proteins, removing sugar, fructose, carbohydrates and everything else I was addicted to in my diet. Since starting, I’ve lost over 50 pounds and my mobility is better. The walks here at the conference have been painless for the most part – even though I’m still carrying about 200 pounds too many.
Учора вечарам мы з Шэрыл правялі яшчэ адну дзівосную размову. Яна была ў захапленні ад пераўтварэння, якое я рабіў, і дзялілася, як Бясплатна continues to come to life. It’s a community of passionate people who share stories, advice, recipes and events about food sensitivities, food allergies, and diet. She’s now working closely with industry experts and corporations working within the industry.
Our conversation led to us discussing how these companies wanted to build communities as well. There’s a huge problem with this. Corporations are concerned about the topics that Cheryl discusses, but they’ll never match Cheryl’s passion. They’ve never experienced the agony that Cheryl did. And ultimately – their purpose is to sell where Cheryl’s is to share. When a corporation owns a community, I don’t believe it’s ever able to overcome trust issues because people recognize that there’s an underlying motivation of the community to sell. Regardless of the intent of the corporation, Cheryl will заўсёды be давераны больш.
There is an alternative that performs well every single day in social media… and that’s карпаратыўнае спонсарства. When a company owns a community, its motivation is always in question. But when a company sponsors a community, it’s appreciated and rewarded. Sponsorship basically says, “We recognize your authority, passion, motivation and autonomy working around this topic – and we’d like to help you grow that community because we care.”
Cheryl wishes to grow the community and then monetize it to fund its continued growth. I’m encouraging Cheryl to do it in reverse – monetize her passion and the passion of the community with the help of sponsors – then watch it grow! The value of Cheryl’s platform and community isn’t the money that’s paid by the click-through advertising… it’s paying for the passion that Cheryl has and the fact that she’s incapable of failing. The topic is so interwoven into Cheryl’s life now that she will always be an authority on these issues and will always be passionate in sharing her experience and expertise.
ІМА, а менеджэр супольнасці on a brand’s community site can never come close to success in comparison. Communities focus around central problems, beliefs, politics, hobbies and talents – not around brands. Cheryl will succeed where brands will fail because – ultimately – the motivation is different. Consumers can smell the motivation a mile away. Any company with talent will know Cheryl, via Бясплатна, гэта фантастычная інвестыцыя - і рызыка падтрымкі такой суполкі ў пачатку яе росту будзе спонсарам, у якога варта купляць.
