Hi, I’m Rob Cairns here. I’m the CEO and Chief creator of amazing ideas at Stunning Digital Marketing. I hope you’re all having an amazing day today. Before we get to this week’s episode, I want to make a couple of announcements. The first is as you know, for many episodes, I’ve put show transcripts out for this podcast. Moving forward, I’ll be only putting out a quick show summary. This takes effect immediately. By the time this podcast there’s two remaining episodes that do not have transcripts, we’ll have a cultural summary, this project is finally decided and done. The second announcement is all episodes of the STM show can be found by going to stunning digital marketing.com slash episode and the episode number. The old links work and redirected in just a little bit too. We have an old podcast called with our CEO. And those are all stunning digital marketing comm slash w. o e, any episode number as well. The third is after this week. I’ll be moving back on a more consistent Thursday morning really scheduled. It’s been hard balancing, producing business content, as well as doing client work. Always the job knowing that there will be no podcasts on December 26 to the Christmas holidays, or the week of January 2 to the New Year’s week. Now that the announcements are done, let’s get on with this week’s episode. In our last episode, I talked about things I really did not like on the internet. Today I want to focus on the things I love and a lot of things that I don’t want to share these with you. I’ve been online longer than most people. I use compuserve Delphi use that BBs systems long before the internet was formed. In all the time I’ve been online, I think I’ve seen it all. And I really want to share with you a very personal story in the interest of transparency. And it kind of says a lot about how I feel about 29 years ago, I met a lady named Joe McLean in the Yahoo chat group was actually a really social group and was named Dean for deleting and updating for a couple years. Penn State is really good friends. Four years ago, I came out of a really crappy relationship. And Jill and I started spending more time they were married on August 8 2017. This is one of the amazing stories that I like to share that have come out at the Internet for me personally. Without it, I didn’t know CPD. Another great thing about the internet is my goodness, I really could not do what I do without gender. Next, I provide digital marketing services. These services include everything from PPC ads to websites, IT services are all internet paced. And with the outturn without the internet, I could not provide the service that agency provides. And I should sell off that. So that’s a really good thing. Let’s chat about services that allows us to do voice and video chat, Skype, zoom come to mind quickly. I usually communicate with clients and friends on almost a daily basis. Now could we do that without the internet? Shout out to guys like Todd Jones, the vendor sync and my friend Jeff Brown. You know, guys, without the internet, we wouldn’t be talking on a regular basis and a lot of you guys amongst other people like to Kim Doyle’s for pop DUNS and so on and so forth. I’m just a lucky guy. By communication, I can communicate with people all over the world. And that’s an amazing thing. The internet and technology actually bring people closer to part than volume part. even despite your timezone difference right to vendor work. What can I say about that one? I say good morning, you’re going to bed and vice versa. It’s really funny sometimes. Social media is one aspect the internet that I really like. I’ve met many people around the world and talk to many of them regularly. Some of us have even met in person. Many times that I value these relationship and strengthens relationships everyday. Their favorite social media sites are YouTube, LinkedIn, Facebook, and of course Twitter. You’re not this amazing resource finding out to do something. Many years ago my son Stephen learned how to string a lacrosse stick from watching YouTube video. My wife Jill finds recipes online. But on the internet, I use a finding for answers the question for my business our great uses of the internet.
Isn’t that and what stay up to date on what’s going on in news, sports, entertainment and more. It’s all online. Much better solution than watching news and sports on TV. They all use the internet for streaming in our house we stream music Spotify movies and shows using Disney, Amazon Prime, or even Netflix. Think about a world without screaming and watch him on any device of your choice in any way. In our house, we use IoT Internet of Things devices where the Amazon Alexa smart plugs, and we use them quite regular, they’re all internet connected, make our life much easier. Your net is a great place to educate yourself. I use the web for learning all the time. often take courses online, attend webinars. I’m an avid podcast listener news podcasts as a learning tool for many topics, including the digital marketing industry. It’s always easy to jump up and down. Let’s say the internet is bad, causing device problems, broken marriages, bad relationships and why this is so not the case, the problems of society. Let’s take broken marriages. For example, your generation oftentimes internet frankly, if someone’s not happy, nurten never be happy. giving their generation doesn’t work on marriages or relationships in the way we do. marriages. Relationships require work. This has nothing to do with the internet. I treat everything as disposable. Everything important in life takes work and time. Please remember that. How do we make the internet web a better place a few ways include the following. Treat others the way we want to be treated. Use internet for the greater good. Don’t blame the internet for shortcomings. Use internet to better yourself. Continue to educate yourself using your net, eat some great people and use it to educate and learn from think about using the internet to make your life much better. It’s made my life better. My wife Joanna social. for that. I’m truly grateful. Now I do very much. That is it for now. Remember, the internet is not all that bad. It’s what you make out of it. Have a great day.
