About Juan Vides

Juan Vides TechACS Long IslandAt the age of four, Juan Vides arrived in the United States with his parents after a long and dangerous trip from El Salvador.  During the bus ride from Laredo, Texas to New York, he learned his first English word, “pen” from another passenger. As El Salvadoran refugees, his family was granted amnesty in 1986 by Ronald Reagan, and Juan received his green card. During High School, Juan learned about the electoral process and was so motivated by the power of the vote that he encouraged his parents to begin with him the process of becoming an American citizen. When he was 16 years old, Juan Vides became a citizen of the United States.

Juan’s career started at Trader Joe’s, and when he was 21 he was offered a management position. After a few years, he realized this wasn’t his passion. So at age 26 he decided to take a different path and started Farmingdale State University to pursue a BS in Computer Programming and System Information. As is Juan’s way, he not only joined the Computer Club at Farmingdale, but became its President and brought the club to life.  He continued his Education at the Stony Brook University for his MBA in Business Management.

In 2003, he was employed part time by configuring internet telephones eventually moving into a full time position. Jeff Pulver, his boss, went on to become the co-founder of Vonage.  Juan traveled the country as the set-up guy for corporate trade shows meeting key players in the computer technology industry at the time like Michael Powell, Chairman of the FCC,and Mark Cuban to name a few.

Juan’s business started as a necessity after his wallet was stolen in Boston where he was attending a corporate trade show. All his credit cards and ID’s were in the wallet, and he wondered why someone hadn’t created a website for people to store their 1-800 numbers. So he created it. After he built his own website, he put an ad on Craigslist as a website builder, and as of today he’s built over 300 websites. His company, TechACS Corp, keeps evolving as technology keeps evolving, and now he provides Search Engine Optimization services and is branching into Social Media Marketing.

Juan lives with his wife, son and daughter in Oceanside, NY.

Also he an active board member for the American Heart Association of Long Island, Long Island Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Hicksville Chamber of Commerce.

Juan feels his life has been one of good fortune, and he likes to share that with as many people as he can. Through his company, he gives back by offering web services pro bono or at significant discounts to local non-profit organizations. This is how his relationship with the Long Island Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Hicksville Chamber of Commerce began , and he continues to remain an active member reaching out to support and enrich the community of Long Island that has been his home since he made the long journey from El Salvador as a boy.

The Social Studies Group

The Social Studies Group is a social media research firm that specializes in complex social media monitoring and analysis, issue and industry trend identification, and netnography.

The Social Studies GroupThe Social Studies Group has been in the research business since 1995 and have been doing social media research since the very beginning – on USENET, bulletin boards, and GEnie, AOL, CompuServe groups, and the like. The Social Studies Group is proud to have created and maintained monitoring systems back in the day before social media monitoring tools.

While The Social Studies Group is firmly planted in the social research space, they continue to have traditional research capabilities (primary and secondary research) and have been involved with brand names that you have in your kitchen cabinets, refrigerators, medicine cabinets, magazine racks, on your cell phones and in your pockets.

The Social Studies Group also works with retailers, financial institutions, and some intense business-to-business brands that you’ve never heard of (but that are really awesome). No two research projects are created alike. Sometimes you know exactly what you need to know. Other times, you just need to know where to start. That’s why all their reports and services are customized. The Social Studies Group reports vary from basic overviews to specific categorical research to full netnographic studies. They know that you don’t always need to know everything, but you do need to know the right things.

Social Media Monitoring & Analysis

Looking for complex social media monitoring? Need unbiased help for a DIY solution (and maybe even assistance getting started?) We’re tool agnostic (though we have our favorites) and we sure know our stuff. Their motto: “Social media monitoring tools don’t solve problems. People solve problems.”

Social Media Consulting & Strategy 

They’re marketers at heart and boy, oh boy, are they immersed in social media. Their analytical approach to problem solving and strategic planning – coupled with serious project management skills – ideally positions them to help our clients audit, plan, implement and continuously improve their social media efforts.

Netnography Research

What is netnography? It’s the study of individuals, communities, and cultures. Online. It’s also one of the best ways to gain insight into your audience’s thoughts and perspectives on a subject, brand, or issue.

Traditional Research 

Their traditional research department offers a range of services including primary and secondary research, News Tracking, Investment Banking Research, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), analysis and strategic consulting. Their people come from the worlds of finance, research, business development, advertising and PR, but they all share one thing: passion.

Wendy Goldman Scherer, Analyst. Strategist. Managing Partner.

Wendy Goldman SchererWendy knew from her years as a partner with Bozell Worldwide that there was a great need for knowledge synthesis and business research that was more than a mere information dump. To address the market need for finding and digesting complex business research, she founded Scherer Cybrarian in 1995.

The business grew and expanded over the years to include primary research, GIS, news aggregation and monitoring, and much more.

But what she loved the most was the emerging world of social media research. (Don’t laugh. Everyone should love their work as much as Wendy does!)

As this segment grew, it became apparent that this specialty could stand on its own to grow and change with the times. And so, The Social Studies Group was born in 2009.

We all know that social media monitoring, research and analysis have integral roles in the strategy and implementation process for many agencies and brands.

The tools have become extremely sophisticated and the specialty is in a constant state of change and, trust me, Wendy keeps up.

She leads the strategy team and has been working with clients for many years now on social media monitoring and analysis and, best of all, netnography (virtual ethnography) and linguistics studies.
