I love it when I meet...

I love it when I meet conflict
It tells me whether I am still being led by the Spirit of God or if my flesh is leading me.

I passed this test, I don't know if I will be alert enough to pass the next one but I am glad that I passed this one.

I feel so proud right now. Ecstatic inside.


This is so profound
Most people are constantly talking about their humanity, I feel like I am from another planet. What about we recognize our divinity.

When God gives birth to us, if we really understand what the new creation means, we are more than this flesh on the outside. Our spirit man is made alive.

I am sorry to say not true, I am very happy to say that many Christian practice behavioural modification and call it Christianity. If you are not aware of the new man in Christ, let me inform you that you are in school, cramming what the teacher is saying but putting none of it into practice and thus failing exams.

I'm saved and so I walk in the Spirit
How do I do that?
God is spirit, I am spirit, shouldn't it be natural for me to walk in who I am predominantly?
It's a switch

When you remember who you are, you will function as who God made you.

I hear this thing about demons this, demons that...
It ticks me out really, it does.

If you can acknowledge demons, why do you find it difficult to acknowledge angels.
The way my mama told me the story, satan got kicked out of heaven for attempting to be like God and he took 1/3 rebel angels along with him. 

If I understand my maths perfectly, that means that for every demon there are two angels. The angels are more. If I understand what revelation says, there are a multitude of angels, can you define multitude?

I don't get it when Christians constantly confessing the wrong stuff in the name of gossiping or lame attempts to tear others down. My bible tells me that you will have what you say. Better watch yourself, whatever you saying, you will see. Even when its a joke.

My bible says in Hebrews that the angels are sent for the heirs of salvation. From Daniel, I understand that any time you get an answered prayer, an angel has been at work around you.

Demons are sent to spoil, angels are sent to do the will of God on earth. Empower the one you want functioning around you by the words you speak. God sees you as a king even if you may not always see yourself that way. He sees you as His own and taken care of.

Whatever
Let me cut through the long lecture:

God is sovereign
God is king
His kingdom rules
You are a king's kid
You are a king also
Speak what you want
Your Father-God wants to take care of you.

Remember that you are saved and so walk in the Spirit

You want a definition
Read Galatians 5:16-23

No one is greater than the word of God
If you cannot submit yourself to God's word
How do you want to access the authority of God to live a victorious life on earth?

What happens when someone googles your name?



When you type your name into google, what comes up? When you type your company name into google, what comes up? When you type your business rival's name into google, what comes up?

What shows up is what the public gets to see, or how much they can get to know you from the internet. It is known in digital marketing circles as "Building Authority".

I know your company is good
I guess your company is good
Maybe

I will never know until you can communicate your company and its values adequately using the online tools of this generation.

What are your social media channels saying to your potential market?
What is your website saying?



Yes, Google said it.

1.17 billion people use Google to search for the things they are looking for on the internet. If you take care of your website and social media, you are 40% more likely to be found on the internet.

Don't forget to make your website mobile friendly so that the 93 million mobile users in Nigeria can find you, if your business is in Nigeria and more if your business is international.

Some of the things that should be on your website and on your social media channels are:

- Your years of experience in say, marketing or in website design
- Your list of skills and possibly a portfolio
- Your qualifications
- Your past clients


Pictures and videos are the way to go in #2016, they are very engaging and people use more data than they have ever used in the last 10 years, especially with the influx of #android phones into the Nigerian market.

Be committed to building trust via open communication on the web (website and social media platforms). Be consistent.

Answer questions/inquiries. Be smart about meeting your clients, offices or open and safe spaces to explore business ideas or proposals. 


Treat your customers like royalty and they will give you the same treatment. Be upfront about the benefits that you will provide. Discuss everything.

If you're new to Twitter, allow me help!

This should help in getting 30,000 followers. Click here

I read this in 2014 when I was working for a real estate company as a social media executive, I was very good at it. It was fun thinking on my feet and creating new ways to communicate the brand to the most important person in any campaign, the audience (you). Any company's product is all about you. Yes, the product may be targeted at a certain demography but is never complete without you. So I celebrate you and what you have to say, it makes it easier to serve you better.

I have almost 2000 followers on Twitter
I tweet everyday. Let's take a look at today's tweet. I am going to embed one tweet that says something about who I am.
Yes, I believe I am creative. My almost 5000 friends on Facebook who consist of friends, family, colleagues and amazing Facebook fam will agree with me, they get to experience my creativity day and night.

Do you want 30,000 followers?

Well that is possible. Let's start with the simple target of getting 2000 followers who like you and won't follow and unfollow you in a whim but are really interested in you and in your product.

Everything I tell you in this post works. I have put it to practice and analyzed and re-analyzed.



Guess who? Udo Okonjo
I manage several blogs and several social media accounts along with a team of two other geniuses who have varying interests. You could call them exquisite, they think like no other person on the earth and are amazingly creative. They are experts in everything called beautiful or art or beautiful art. I am blessed to have them working with me to achieve my dream.

I manage two blogs and different Facebook, Twitter and other media channels. I focus on three major ones but from time to time I swim in the waters of all the different media channels.



I used to dream of being this kind of assistant, super efficient, beautiful and still am in possession of a brain that works. It is easy to impress a man when you are working because all he cares is about the bottom-line, do your job. With a woman, you need to go tenn extra miles.
I love working for both men and women, they bring out amazing qualities in you if you let them. I also work with male or female interns, if you pass the interview. Now I am more of the boss woman in "The Intern", have you watched it.

Here's the trailer

Another on Twitter, don't act. Be yourself. Communicate. Twitter is full of people like you, people of faith and purpose who are busy pursuing their dreams also and making the world a better place at the same time. Do both. Don't just pursue your career, ensure that you serve your generation while you are at it.


I still want to dress amazing and chic. I am chic right now but the flats take the elegance out of everything. I am just a tad elegant with smart sensible shoes. I love my smart, sensible shoes because my calf don't hurt at night when I want to sleep and think of how to use my creativity to change my world the next day.

- Build relationships as much as it is within your power, it opens you up to meet other great people. God has made many, they are out there, just reach out and say hi. Everyone is on twitter to talk to others.

- Tweet everyday, no matter how small or how much. There is never a wrong or a right thing to say, let moderation guide you though.
- Be yourself. Don't put all your secrets out there but don't be afraid to be vulnerable if it makes some other person's life better or encourages another person

Please don't join the nasty crowd, everyone is fighting one battle or the other, don't make it more difficult by being difficult and do be a listening ear. 


BUT if you are running a professional account, while being open, remember that you are representing another company. Put the brand first and never have any altercations with a company brand twitter account.



Communication changes all the time, be ready to change as it does


I am a very important personality on Twitter, so important that John Maxwell follows me. That is one of the advantages of Twitter, you get to meet and talk one on one with these amazing people who are changing your life so you change the life of others.



Don't advertise on Twitter, instead engage. Be polite, be friendly, be helpful. Use twitter as a BMW to drive traffic to your blog or website. 

Don't use swear words, it is viewed as irresponsible and you won't get the crowd you are looking for using that strategy.

No swearing!



If you are running your company account, remember not to
 tweet on your company info only. 

Entertain. 


Chip in about 20% company hardcore content and then the remain 80% should be used in educating, entertaining and sharing.

Do let me know what you learned or your comment or your observation.

On writing and how your muse is... people!

On writing
I love writing
I hate writing and
sometimes I have writer's bloc
Or evade writing real, authentic, honest stuff

So I have several blogs
I haven't written anything from my heart for a while
I have been writing a lot of stuffs
but nothing that touches my heart
nothing that I will come back to read because I believe it's a big deal

How's my yearly plan going?
I have everything planned for 2016 written down
Well as far as I can see
Am I going to be more sassy this 2016?
Maybe

I am naturally witty
and since I don't let the wit out of my mouth most of the time
I am going to have to let it out on paper
I should be going home, work has been over for an hour.



Good evening

Yours

Writing better

Writing

It is an expression of your inner self
and expression of who you are
It is a beautiful blend of words that touches
first the soul writing and then the soul reading

It should change something in you
Or touch something in you
It should provoke humanity to rise up and get involved

Writing

Writing is art!
