Social marketing

Social marketing is the marketing principles used to sell ideas, attitudes and behaviors just as those used to sell products to consumers. Social marketing seeks to influence social behaviors - not to the benefit the marketer, but to benefit the target audience and the general society.

Social media is a spiritual discipline
Learning how to 'do' social media effectively is a lot like learning a spiritual discipline. There are paradoxes involved, and you have to abandon the traditional western approach of applying ego-based will-power to get results. Here are five spiritual ideas and how social media exemplifies them.
The 5 spiritual ideas of social media

From Wikipedia
Social marketing is the systematic application of marketing, along with other concepts and techniques, to achieve specific behavioral goals for a social good.[1] Social marketing can be applied to promote merit goods, or to make a society avoid demerit goods and thus to promote society's well being as a whole. For example, this may include asking people not to smoke in public areas, asking them to use seat belts, or prompting to make them follow speed limits.

History of social marketing
Social marketing began as a formal discipline in 1971, with the publication of "Social Marketing: An Approach to Planned Social Change" in the Journal of Marketing by marketing experts Philip Kotler and Gerald Zaltman.

Fostering Sustainable Behavior: An Introduction to Community-Based Social Marketing

"The quote by Albert Einstein 'Setting an example is not the main means of influencing another; it is the only means,' is the most effective way to foster sustainable behavior in my opinion. Leading by example is the only way to outwardly show commitment and obtain credibility."

Spiritual Disciplines

Every goal we set and reach in life involve both the spiritual and physical discipline to achieve success!

Discipline is any activity, within our power, inwhich we engage in order to enable us to do that which we cannot do by our direct effort. Spirituality means something different to everyone. Most of us sense that there is something greater than the concrete world we see with our physical eyes. As our brain processes sensory experiences, we naturally look for patterns. We then seek to find meaning in the patterns. Spirituality is the meaning we apply to that which exist beyond the limits of our physical senses. Thus, Spiritual Discipline is that Path of study and learning we take to improve our awareness of the nonphysical and how we can use such knowledge to enhance our mental, physical and social well-being.

Spiritual discipline can and will help us in every aspect of living! Spiritual Wellness is that personal path through the course of life, involving values and beliefs that provide a sense of purpose in our lives. Self improvement is more than just our physical growth, it is also our spiritual growth; that inner peace through, meditation, positive thinking for achieving success.
