Remember the video where the dad shoots the teen’s computer? I was instantly intrigued by the words on the screen: Dad shoots teen. The natural side of being nosey and interested won over and I clicked through to learn that these search words lead to a father who demanded respect.

This dad was very upset about the disrespectful messages his teen daughter posted on Facebook. I sympathized and wanted to see what he did in this video. I smiled because I could relate because I too have a teenaged daughter and we have had the talk about respecting ourselves in the social media realm.

The dad proceeds to shoot up his daughter’s laptop and over 100,000 viewers later he’s famous. Naturally this made me think about how my own clients want instant social media success.

Get Instant Social Media Success and Go Viral!

  • Firstly, you must be sensational. What do you have to say that is different from everyone else? Certainly there is something as related to the adage that all of us have a story to tell.
  • Secondly, there is no such thing as bad publicity, so if this dad were seeking more IT jobs (his career), then he certainly now has their attention. If he had started a YouTube video trying to get clients to buy from him that would not have worked. Audiences like to be dazzled first.
  • Lastly, base your product or brand around something, anything! Do not start off asking/begging/pleading that the product be bought. Your product will be treated the same as the telemarketers: disconnect and hang up.
