Media Administration is Still Meant to Be for You Even if You are Sixty or Over

Web Design Magician, DIY Digi and DocuMystery are three websites that are members of the Blog Coalition. And it is interesting to note, that all three of them have delved into tough terrain when it comes to to aging, jobs and technology. Let’s face it, just like the old and cheesy sci-fi “B” movies and novels, the fear of being replaced has been with us for quite some time. And now it is more than just something to be afraid of, it has become a reality.

And as “Media Administration” has been saying or implying for years is that technology is our friend. It makes life and work easier and easier, even as it takes jobs from some. But the good news is that if you know the “Method How,” even if your job appears to soon be taken over by Hal of “2001: a Space Odyssey.” One way to deal with it is to get training to be able to do something else, possibly leveraging your existing skillset. But this is compounded sometimes by your age and the existence of “U.S. Ageism.” So what do you do? What do you really do if you are living your life as an older person but want to continue to work? Take a low end position somewhere? Do your best to survive on what you have or have not saved, or turn entrepreneur.

It sounds good and certainly has been glamourized on shows lately. But how realistic is it. Especially since the as you probably noticed, the aforementioned programs mostly spotlight those in their thirties and younger making their business pitches. But in answer to whether it is a good idea to pursue this, our two cents for what it is worth, is that unless you have done a lot of work over the years or have a solid network.

But, for what it is worth, “Method How” is putting together a ten step method how to be able to put together an entrepreneurial project. Let’s face it, there is a lot of junk out there and misleading info, but “Method How” has done their best to not be seen as taking that approach. Their current model is to help “U.S. in Need.”

For the most part lately, to them this means assisting small business owners and those trying to start a business, by providing them with no cost ten step strategies. And we know for a fact they will extend it to those of us sixty or over, as well. So the only risk is the time you spend reading the ten step strategy, or the email report they have, previewing their last strategic offerings. Will it work for you? It depends. Is it worth getting and reading it? Absolutely.

Hands Off Delivery

You only need to make an eLearning course once and it can result in the possibility of making you money on an ongoing basis. And, needless to say, you will be reaching students from all over the world all in different time zone which does not matter because you have the technology that can automatically take and provide orders.

The Possibility of Expanding Your Coaching

For those who have a coaching aspect to their business are able to use the selling of their eLearning course as a way to market their expertise. A strategy that has been used successfully is to draw attention to yourself and your knowledge of a certain desired topic and then take new coaching clients. These clients can then be made aware that if they desire to learn more information, they can purchase from you online various eLearning courses each on a topic within a topic.

What is the Expectation of Students of Your eLearning Course?

This makes a case for making more eLearning courses that are subsets of your major topic. And again, these can be purchases and viewed by students on their own and may not take any additional involvement depending on your platform and what expectations you have made in the area of customer services and support.

The Offering of Various Media Types in the Same Course

The course itself can offer the student a variety of different media types, each of which is easy to make. Media types include, online text, downloadable PDF content and even videos. If you provide your students with all these types of content it can add to the perceived value of what you offer.

What is Your Delivery System?

The delivery system for your course can be done with a variety of different platforms. One approach is to offer your course on a site that has many other eLearning courses as well. The benefit to this approach can sometimes be that likely a site with many courses can provide potential traffic. Though, this is not always true and you may have to drive traffic yourself to your eLearning course on their website. If you have to drive your own traffic be certain to choose a site to release your course that has a good reputation and depending on its visibility in your industry can give you a degree of prestige.

Media Mind Over Matter

The Film Industry Facing the Virus

Filmmaking is of course a very important component of types of media in the Media Administrator’s bag of Media Arts. With the onslaught of COVID-19 the film industry in New York pretty much shut down. Now that a very slow layering in approach is being used for various industries, an unofficial movie crew was put together to face the Coronavirus.

Very Contagious

As you can seen in this picture, not all members of the crew are using masks, nor are they practicing social distancing. We hope that because of this that the other members of the crew don’t somehow catch the disease.

Mind Over Matter on the Coronavirus

Mostly we wanted to get the message out to Media Administrators in the New York area that pulling a film together can very much be mind over matter,  meaning do your due diligences and make certain your crew follows the Covid guidelines.

Media Administration and Social Media

Digital Projects

A big part of media administration is overseeing social media projects. Presently we use client social media forms to link to their digital assets. Or to put it another way, for us social media is a way to amplify the message.  And the message is generated through the various digital projects that we create for our clients.

Desired Communication

Lately we’ve been thinking in the realm of social media about the components that social links to. These include a client’s primary website and niche ones that we sometimes create for them. The niche aspect gives us a way to concentrate the client’s message onto one site that is dedicated specifically to the communication desired at that time.

Traffic to a Primary Website

We’ll often do this niche projects in WordPress whereas clients’ main sites tend to be created in SquareSpace. Having a niche site that social media can connect to means being able to concentrate a client’s message and provides a forum that social media traffic can be driven to, in order to participate in some activity that connects her or him to the client’s primary website.

What We as ArtisticPreneurs can Learn from Houdini

Houdini the Opportunity Creator
Houdini the Opportunity Creator

We as Media Administrators must always remember that at the heart we are ArtisticPreneurs. Being an ArtisticPreneur is not a new thing and there’s a lot that we can learn from famous ArtisticPreneurs like magician/escape artist Harry Houdini.

Houdini throughout his career never lost site of the fact that if he wanted opportunities he had to create them himself. He figured out early on that things were not going to go his way by relying on the people around him. He had to know where he wanted to be and then was able to leverage others to help him achieve it.
