EFFECTIVE MAY 1ST, 2010, WE HAVE MADE THE DECISION to close our coworking space in Orem. We are moving our core business, Lava7 (which currently operates from the Cowork Utah space) to our new office space in Provo. Once settled there, our plan is to expand Lava7 later this year into an adjoining space where we can once again offer coworking in a social media community workspace that provides a collaborative environment for independent designers, bloggers, and programmers. To all our wonderful friends and supporters, WE THANK YOU! It has been a blast! And, very productive for lots of people. Please stay in touch with Jack (jack at lava7 dot com) as we move ahead.

We’re Lava7. We provide social media marketing solutions for businesses. We’re located inside Cowork Utah in Orem, and we’re looking for two more talented people to collaborate with us. Is one of them you?
To Be Clear… This Is Not A Job Offer
Are you familiar with the concept of coworking? Cowork Utah is a social media community workspace that provides a collaborative environment for entrepreneurs and independent freelancers. We’re looking for two fun-to-work-with, passionate graphic designers, art directors, programmers, WordPress geeks, and the like. Maybe even an account manager. We’re not sure yet. You would continue to run your own business as you are doing right now—except that you’d be running it here at Cowork Utah.
We Aren’t Asking For Much In Return
We just want to be able to hire you to help us when it makes sense for both of us! That’s right… Hire you. You will have no “in trade” obligation to us for the rent. And we’ll even furnish the office for you. We love having talented people working in the building. It not only helps us when our plate gets full, but it also helps you with more workload and gigs to earn a living. We’re confident that we’ll find two people who bring great value to the equation—and we want to pay for that value. Pretty simple.
Here Are The Details – Please Read Carefully
1. We’re accepting applications from NOVEMBER 1st thru NOVEMBER 9th.
2. To submit an application, simply email: jack (at) lava7 (dot) com. As part of your email please tell us what you do and why you think you’d be a good fit around here. Please include any links to the things you’ve done and/or your online portfolio. You can attach a resume if you’d like. Whatever you think will best help us know you better.
3. PLEASE… PLEASE… Don’t call us. We’re trying to make a living, just like you. WE PROMISE that we’ll acknowledge receipt of your email application so that you know we got it. AND WE PROMISE to carefully consider every application.
4. We will make a decision on two winning applicants BY NOVEMBER 11th. If we don’t call you, you’ll know we didn’t pick you. It doesn’t mean we don’t still love you. It just means we didn’t pick you. If you are chosen you may move in immediately if you’d like. The five months we’re paying for are November through the end of March, 2010. There’s no obligation after that on either side.
5. We reserve the right to not pick anybody if we don’t find the right fits.

When it comes to the way(s) in which your company is engaging with your audience, are YOU asking the right questions? Don’t get caught up in the tools. Make sure, first, that your message and objectives are crystal clear.
I TALK A LOT ABOUT THE PRINCIPLE OF “PUSH VS. PULL” when it comes to social media marketing. It seems like doing so is one of the easiest ways to assist people in grasping the fundamental difference between traditional marketing and new marketing strategies.
Traditional marketing uses push tactics, such as cold calls, TV commercials, billboards, radio ads and direct mail to interrupt consumer’s attention. New marketing uses pull tactics based on behavior to engage consumers when and how they want to be engaged.
The fact is that only 18% of television ad campaigns today generate positive ROI, and 90% of the people who CAN skip television commercials DO! In addition, a recent Nielsen study shows that only 14% of people surveyed trust advertising—while a whopping 78% of people surveyed trust the recommendations of other consumers. The new marketing/communication model is a dialogue, not a monologue.
Are you listening to and engaging with your audience, in two way conversations, at a number of touch points along the online engagement continuum?

We’re big Hugh Macleod fans around here. Here’s a motion design clip produced a couple of years ago by three students (Toon Gorissen, Niek Kosten & Martijn Pillards) and inspired by the “How To Be Creative” manifest by Hugh Macleod.
We’ll be talking more about Hugh Macleod soon, when we unveil our agency’s new quintessence and focal point—a remarkable piece of art that he created with Seth Godin. In the meantime, enjoy this short clip:
