Social Coffee Time – GDPR, F8 2018 and 4 Day Video Challenge



Best Facebook Group to learn what you need to do for GDPR: GDPR Group

So, I am here today because I wanted to make sure that you were filled in on some things and then I just want to talk
about my future challenge that I’m going to be doing.

We’re going to talk today about three items, number one GDPR and I’m gonna give you just some resources for that and then number two we’ll be talking about the F8 conference and what happened there and then number three we will be talking about my upcoming video challenge and it’s gonna be starting soon so those are the three things that we will be covering.

If you have not heard about GDPR, we’ve been making them aware of it and people thought oh it’s not for me we’re not in the UK we’re in the United States and wrong it is very wrong it’s something you need to be aware of and you will need to make some changes.

Go to the group it’s actually a Facebook group called GDPR, so if you just go into Facebook and I will drop it
the link to but if you go into Facebook and search groups and just put in GDPR it has over 20,000 members you can’t
miss it so it’s just that group to learn more about GDPR if you haven’t heard about it at all before.

Basically it’s happening in Europe in the UK and it’s a security thing that you need to make some changes and you need to do it for Cambridge Analytica to with Facebook ads in your privacy policies that’s a big thing, so you need to relook at your privacy policy and cover if you’re retargeting or doing anything like that.

So, for instance I have this video challenge coming up and that’s an opt-in for email and on it. I actually made sure that what was on there that said you will be getting future updates from me on social media.
Join that group and there’s a download for you but bottom line is to look at your privacy policies update
those and make sure you’re very upfront with your emails.

The last thing I want to talk about is my four day video challenge!

I am running a four day video challenge that is going to be very simple. So, it’s actually called Simple social video challenge. This starts on from May 14th, 2018 (If it is past that date, you can still take the video challenge by clicking here)  it’s short and to the point it’s only 4 days. BUT it can make all the difference in your business.

I’m going to be giving you tips of things that I teach all the time in simple ways to be doing videos. 

Little side note fun for GDPR 🙂

Google Pizza

CALLER: Is this Gordon’s Pizza?

GOOGLE: No sir, it’s Google Pizza.

 CALLER: I must have dialed a wrong number. Sorry.

GOOGLE: No sir, Google bought Gordon’s Pizza last month.

 CALLER: OK. I would like to order a pizza.

GOOGLE: Do you want your usual, sir?

 CALLER: My usual? You know me?

GOOGLE: According to our caller ID data sheet, the last 12 times you called you ordered an extra-large pizza with three cheeses, sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms and meatballs on a thick crust.

CALLER: OK! That’s what I want …

GOOGLE: May I suggest that this time you order a pizza with ricotta, arugula, sun-dried tomatoes and olives on a whole wheat gluten free thin crust?

 CALLER: What? No way! I detest vegetables.

GOOGLE: Your cholesterol is not good, sir.

CALLER: How the hell do you know?

GOOGLE: Well, we cross-referenced your home phone number with your medical records. We have the result of your blood tests for the last 7 years.

 CALLER: Okay, but I do not want your rotten vegetable pizza!  I already take medication for my cholesterol.

GOOGLE: Excuse me sir, but you have not taken your medication regularly. According to our database, you only purchased a box of 30 cholesterol tablets once, at Drug RX Network, 4 months ago.

 CALLER: I bought more from another drugstore.

GOOGLE: That doesn’t show on your credit card statement.

 CALLER: I paid in cash.

GOOGLE: But you did not withdraw enough cash according to your bank statement.

 CALLER: I have other sources of cash.

GOOGLE: That doesn’t show on your last tax return unless you bought them using an undeclared income source, which is against the law.


GOOGLE: I’m sorry, sir, we use such information only with the sole intention of helping you.

 CALLER: Enough already! I’m sick to death of Google, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and all the others. I’m going to an island without internet, cable TV, where there is no cell phone service and no one to watch me or spy on me.

GOOGLE: I understand sir, but you need to renew your passport first.  It expired 6 weeks ago…


In conclusion, there is a ton going on inside of social media and online marketing. I do realize that it is hard to keep up with, so that is why I host my weekly show to keep you updated and teach you new strategies.
