How do I: improve user adoption

After several months of research in what is missing in the market, how to fill that gap and what was worth doing a deep dive to find out a lot more about it, I found the topic for my next (7th) book as well as my next (6th) upcoming podcast series.  It is little talked about, vital to most businesses, ignored by some, misunderstood by more and unknown to many.

During my months of research on the topic, I found the origins of it, found people all over the world willing to share information and their experiences with it.

This is something you should be very aware of whether you work for a business which:

  • offers products or services
  • is non-tech or tech-focused
  • has between 1 to 200,000 employees
  • operates locally, nationally or internationally

Since I only write and podcast about niche topics, the next niche topic I plan to write about and release my next audio podcast series about improving user adoption.

After uncovering a lot of fascinating stories about both internal and external user adoption, I want to share these with you every week starting in September. Subscribe today to follow this weekly podcast series about user adoption at http://useradoptionpodcast.com coming soon. You can stay in the loop for the upcoming book as well.

I am giving some live presentations about how to improve user adoption for those who are interested in finding out more and I will take questions. Join me on:

12:00 PM – 1:00 PM in Savannah, GA

Wednesday, July 25, 2018

Starting Low Country Non-Fiction Writers

Since moving to Bluffton, South Carolina a few months ago, I researched and visited a number of writers groups in the area, including the Island Writers’ Network (IWN) of Hilton Head Island and South Carolina Writers Association (SCWA). Attended a few their meetings and met a small number of non-fiction writers like myself. There are other groups I have not attended since I don’t live in Charleston like Rough Writers

Most writers I’ve met in the Lowcountry are fiction writers. This is not uncommon especially in the land Pat Conroy made famous among other authors.

A few other [unnamed] writers groups were more interested in upselling their membership dues instead of forming a local chapter to provide support and value to writers.

So I saw a gap in the market beyond myself where other non-fiction writers were underrepresented and underserved. After speaking with another local non-fiction writer named Roy Austin, we decided to start the Low Country Non-Fiction Writers (LCNFW) to meet monthly at the Beaufort County library which also supports and promotes our meetings to their own patrons.

All experience levels welcome. You don’t have to be published yet to join. We will have some networking among writers and share resources.

Our first meeting is scheduled on Tuesday January 16, 2018 from 6 pm to 7 pm at the Bluffton Community Library in Bluffton, SC. All are welcome and the meetings are free of charge.

We will meet monthly and future meetings will be announced shortly.
