Sharks On A Plane & it’s not the 49ers Hayne Plane!

Cronulla Sharks Mermaids at the NRLFinals

When you think of “Sharks On A Plane” most people think of the hugely popular Hollywood B Grade cult classic SharkNado franchise, maybe the pending sequel to  “Snakes On A Plane” or maybe Rugby League – NFL 49ers convert Jarryd Hayne and the Hayne Plane

But you’d be mistaken!

This weekend the Cronulla Sharks Football  have chartered a special flight to take 100 passionate fans to the NRLFinals against the North Queensland Cowboys.

Sharks Skipper Paul Gallen and key forward Wade Graham are right behind the push.

 “I’ve heard seats are limited and expensive and getting to Townsville is difficult, but the Sharks plane is a great idea,” Gallen told Sportal.

“I hope they can fill it and we can get a few Sharks fans amongst that North Queensland crowd on Saturday.”

Graham added: “It’s hard for a lot of Sharkies fans to get up there so this is a great idea.

“It definitely means a lot to the community down here and it means a lot to us too. There’s a good feeling in the area.”

The media have been quick to pick up on the story with both Sharks tragics Phil “Buzz” Rothfield  and film director/ actor and new Footy Show Special Reporter Brendan Cowell getting on board the flight to capture the unique fan experience.  The Sharks will also feature live feeds via their website and social media pages

The challenge now is to quickly find an agile business partner to potentially sponsor and maximise the exposure and opportunity.

Some possible lessons we could all learn from Jarryd.

AND also win!  (then there is another trip to Melbourne)

My Instagram, Flickr WordPress Website WorkFlow

4:00AM – I’m reviewing my social channels – tags, comments, etc

On Instagram I’m tagged for a recent photoshoot with the beautiful & talented @eliseboony from @cronullasharksmermaids.  I know it’s a tough gig.

But this post is not about cheerleaders and photography – it’s about increasing productivity – I’m obsessed with reducing repetitive tasks, website work flows and ways to increase productivity and marketing effectiveness.

How do I improve my Instagram, Flickr WordPress Website WorkFlow?

No time to waste!

Using Zapier – this initial draft post in WordPress is generated automatically every time I add a photo on my Instagram

Note: From a content point of view there are obviously steps that go before that, ie what is the photo/ blog trying to say?

5:30AM – website coding – linking flickr through to content – another test.

I’ve added the ability to search and select my flickr photos from my blog editor and the convert those images to local copies using flickr importer.

Finally, some SEO and then we’ll look at distribution technology.

6:15Am – A rewrite and more copy.   The optimum is three hundred words for a blog – I’m currently long way short at 162.
