Technology and Art Can Make a Difference

The Evolution of a Term

DigiComArts came into being around 2012. As we have mentioned in other posts, the phrase “DigiComArts” stands for “Digital Communication Arts.” In fact, long ago, Digital Communication Arts played a role in our library workshops and awards show. Students studied and integrated DigiComArts into their creative undertakings while participating in an afterschool program at the New York Public Library. Then in 2013, some of these young people were nominated for, and eventually won, Platinum PIAs Awards. At the time of this writing, information on this could still be found on the New York Public Library’s website.

Everyday use of “DigiComArts”

No matter what you decide to call it, DigiComArts can be a name for a creative process that involves the integration of a myriad of different art forms and media components. The idea and reason behind the term being created in the first place, was a way to look at what some call inter-arts and recognize that working in multiple art forms and mediums can be an engaging creative process experience.

Innovation in the Entrepreneurial Domain

When an entrepreneur starts a business these days, it is often to provide a new solution to an age-old problem. If that individual has truly developed something fresh and useful, they can be remarkably successful. Where do these cutting-edge ideas come? Some would say that it involves pondering on various levels, in a manner like when engaging in thought about DigiComArts.

Different Kinds of Digital Subscription-Based Businesses You Can Create

SaaS

A popular form of digital subscription-based businesses is to use the model known as SaaS (Software as a Subscription). If you have software on the web that is useful to people on an ongoing basis, you might consider going with the SaaS direction. You essentially charge a fee monthly for your customer to have access to your platform. This works best if you can have updates including interesting things being done with the software as well as what are the latest new and fresh benefits? Doing this can continue to build of the perceived value of your software thereby giving you a better chance of holding on to your client.

Value and Problem Solving

Another digital subscription-based business that you can start is the delivery to the subscriber a monthly box containing something. This approach has become quite popular with boxes that have in them such things as science experiments for kids, clothes to try on, meats and so on. But regardless of what kind of model you choose for your digital subscription-based business, it needs to be clear that value that it serves to the customer, or as we said earlier, the problem it solves.

Focus Groups

You need to show your future customer the high value benefits your service or product supplies them with and why they need it. You can do this with facts, figures, and testimonials (sometimes called social proof). And ideally, before you launch your business or even before you put any money into it, it is a good idea to bring together actual people who are the kind of person you are trying to reach with your business. Test some of the ideas you have on them. Ask them direct questions and listen to their feedback. This can be greatly beneficial indeed, because they can give you the key to the door of your success. Be sure to integrate all that you learn.

Pricing

A big and important component of starting your digital subscription-based business is pricing. And one of the easiest and most effective way of finding a fit, is to look at the pricing your competitors are using. This is a terrific starting place. Then you will have to decide what feels right to you. Will you charge more or less of than what they are charging? Will you have different packages? Or will your product or service be a singular solution in format?

Yianni Stamas Unplugging from Digital for International Mountains Day

Is the World Slipping Away?

DigiComArts. As much as we enjoy the digital and artistic world of technology as a creative force. Sometimes it is necessary to unplug and look around at the resources of the world slipping away.

How are You Affected by Mountains?

Today, December 11 is International Mountain Day because of the role that mountains play in our daily lives. A source of fresh water for millions is only the start. Mountains are an important habitat of animals and other creatures of the circle of life. Much of my family live near the mountains for which they play a pivotal role in their lives.

Climate Change

International Mountain Day is celebrated on December 11 every year. Having the day is to encourage the development in our precious mountains. The United Nations General Assembly in 2003. The day gives us a chance to spread awareness about protecting the mountain biodiversity in ecosystems that are feeling the weight of pressure due to climate change and pollution.

Spreading the Message

Have you ever climbed a mountain? If so you know first hand what we are talking about. And even if you haven’t there is the symbolic link we have to mountains such as the fact we all have a mountain to climb, even if that mountain is only metaphorical. We cannot allow the possibility of not having mountain life playing a part in our own lives. Like many important ecosystems, this is one we should not lose. So please, do your part in spreading the message of International Mountains Day.

How to Get Past a Parent Who Yelled and Criticized You

From One Generation to the Next

Know that Digital Communication Arts is always available to you. Some of us who became artists did so not only because of the joy of being creative but also as a way to shut out a parent who is continually criticizing us. The artistic expression can be a way to hold at arm’s length those who act out on us. Although difficult to recognize this as a kid, the parent is the one who is spreading dysfunctional traditions and is the one who needs to get a grip. You can bet that the mother or father who is putting down the child experienced something along those lines while young also.

Make a Commitment

But that is not how it is supposed to be. A human being who is a part of “the quest” should always be seeking to do better in their generation toward their child than the parent did to them. Let’s say you are the offspring of someone who has a negative parent, as difficult as it is to do, you need to learn to see who the parent is and make a commitment to doing better.

Your Art

Forgiveness is a term that is used a lot in some circles. Where forgiveness comes into play is the very healthy process of recognizing that your critical parent is a wounded child themselves. Sadly, some may never change and can go to their grave without transforming their ways.  But your job is not done even if they pass. If you become a parent yourself your goal should be to treat that child as you would want to be treated, with love, kindness and understanding. And your art can reflect what you have learned and can maybe even help others who experience it also. Thank God for Digital Communication Arts, also known as DigiComaArts.

How to Become a Billionaire

So, what is it like being a billionaire?

Check In

If you had a billion dollars today, would you know how to sustain that amount and maybe even build on it? Would you know how to navigate through the world of the super-rich, so you were not taken advantage?

Important Question:

Do you know how to attain and keep a billion dollars?

Quickly, About Us

We are not billionaires, not even millionaires. So, what qualifies us to do a story of billionaires and how, with a lot of hard work you can be one too?

You Need to Have Time for the Layers.

Frankly, we are not qualified, but we are doing this tale anyway. We are not able to make a billion, because we are older. To achieve a billion dollars in your lifetime you need to start young. Why? Because becoming a billionaire is a series of layers over a long period of time.

You Need Time

Of course, we do not want to dissuade anyone from trying to become a billionaire, but the reality is you need a certain amount of time to make it happen.

According to Investopedia:

“Becoming a billionaire seems like a great goal, but unfortunately, it’s only a dream for most of us. The thing is many billionaires did not start out as such. Some certainly had economic and educational advantages but even without those, their smart decisions and business choices—plus a few key characteristics—led them to their billions.”

A Brief Look at Some of the Tools of DigiComArts’ Approach to Marketing

In DigiComArts, a promotion can mean the making visible of products and services usually in conjunction with some enticing offer. Usually with promotions the goal is to bring in the client with price drop, but once serving the client is the upsell, which means that the client is being guided to purchase more stuff.

Place is also important. In other words where your physical store is located, brining up the old phrase “Location, location, location.” The new location is similar in concept to your location online. Are you in a place online either through SEO or Paid Traffic, with the best product/service fit, so that your prospect is going to buy from you?

“People” is the next aspect to look at. People are still important online, but sometimes it is about creating the marketing plan that may or may not involve people being likeable to prospects so that they become purchasers.

If your services involve interacting with customers online such as “tech support” for web hosting, you do need the right people. The importance of service comes into play that can either help you to keep customers or to drive them away so that they go to the competition.
