Can Spirituality, Twitter & a War to Make Money Go Together?

Both the current issue of EnlightenNext (Sep-Nov) and Fast Company (Dec-Jan) contain articles about Twitter. EnlightenNext’s focus is on the spiritual implications of Twitter, while Fast Company’s cover story is about Ashton Kutcher’s (aka @aplusk –with the largest Twitter following on the planet) social media marketing model. Mr. Kutcher is authentic about his intention to make money for himself and his clients. As co-CEO, of Katalyst Media, he is quoted as saying “When someone says they are not worried about monetization, that scares the (bleep) out of me ….it’s really a war to make money.”

What I loved about the Kutcher interview was his balanced thinking regarding the social consciousness arm of social media combined with the difference money can make. Kutcher’s war includes using his traction on Twitter to create social movements –and dollars for his clients. With a goal to drive people to Malaria No More’s web site to donate $10, for example, the beginning was a simple, twitterable message “Every 30 seconds, a kid dies of malaria. Nets save lives”. Combined with an affordable call to action: $10 buys a net –the end result of the campaign was 90,000 nets.

The spiritual aspect of Twitter as focused on in the EnlightenNext article is not separate from the difference it can make for business. The point that the growth of Twitter accelerates the spread of global consciousness by allowing us to be in touch with our sense of “oneness” with one another, is a feel good prospect that absolutely can be monetized. The audiences that can be reached and the niches that can be explored on Twitter are endless. Add feel-good messages, plus feel-good prospects, plus feel-good products & services ….you end up with monetization that makes a difference ….PLUS it can feel really really good.
