5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful read that got me thinking Rob Cairns

“This may be V2.0 but nothing has changed the fact that this is first and foremost a book about thinking, not a tutorial or reference.”

About the Author

I have worked in online communications and marketing since 1994, and have built more than 300 websites for customers around the globe. In the last year I worked together with Bridget Willard to write three online marketing books for small businesses, nonprofits, and schools.

My first book, Digital Thinking: Websites, Online Marketing, and so much more, was a result of the learnings I have taken away with me from those projects, and which I have been writing about on my blog since 2015. Digital Thinking V2.0 is a much awaited look at what’s been happening during the COVID pandemic and the move to home office and home school for most all of us. I hope this book be of use to you in understanding and working with any aspect of online communication!

SEO, Digital Transformation, Social Media, Digital Marketing, Drupal, WordPress, Email Marketing, Online Education, Digital Competence, eCommerce … Digital Thinking is not a method or a technology. It’s a way of understanding our world. 

What do we Mean by “Digital”?

Digital is about good communication – which includes online and offline tools and skills. Your digital presence is an extension of all the things you do everywhere.

“Digital” means different things to different people. Is “Digital” a website, an application, a service, your marketing, sales, education, or is it perhaps a way of thinking?

You could add „Digital“ to any of these terms to begin a relevant discussion: Inequality, Divides and Access – Privacy, and Surveillance – Politics, Subversion and Warfare – Identity, Community – Law, Ethics – Collectivism versus individualism – Femininity versus masculinity – Uncertainty avoidance – Long versus short-term orientation – Sex – Learning and Teaching …

The internet is about inclusion, not isolation. It is about bringing people together, not shutting them into bubbles. It is about good communication – which includes online and offline tools and skills. Your digital presence is an extension of all the things you do everywhere.

Digital is a way for you to make new connections and share with the world. It’s a foundational skill that you can apply to grow your business for years to come, no matter how quickly technology changes and trends rise and fall. If you’re not as tech literate as you’d like to be, that’s okay. Communication, online or offline, is not a contest.

Participate. Try. Fail. Try again. Just do it.
