    WEBINAR VIDEO RECORDING






    Q&A LOG & CHAT LINKS

    Here is the link to the Q&A and Chat Log which is way too long to post in this thread. In fact there were so many great questions and the post is so long, it kept making the forum time-out.

    NOTE: This Q & A log is unique in that Myles asked the audience to weigh in with content ideas. Look for the word "ideas" at the beginning of the Q to see all the great content generation ideas that were shared!

    In the Chat log you'll find TONS of great links I dropped during the event about all kinds of local content tips, techniques & topics.

    PLEASE ASK Qs WE COULD NOT GET TO BELOW! Colan and I were typing as fast as we could, but there were so many Qs we could not get to them all.

    IN CASE YOU MISSED IT - Before the webinar I also posted TONs of great links about content creation:

    Awesome Local Content Creation - All The Best Resources

    Re: Powerful Content Creation Ideas for Local Businesses - InsideLocal Webinar

    Linda:

    Thanks for referencing it and of course admining/monitoring it. I participated and I learned a lot. In our cases we are the smb...and not the agency and then I and others act as the agencies.

    We don't have the resources or marketing expertise from the agency side...but we have to be far more focused on the end result bottom line.

    I learned a lot.

    Re: Powerful Content Creation Ideas for Local Businesses - InsideLocal Webinar

    During today's webinar, Don Campbell was talking about an idea I have thought about, but have not yet implemented. Recording a conversation with a business owner would be a great way to get quality content from a business owner. I think Don showed a questionaire that he uses. I wonder if Don would share that with us. Any ideas?

    Just added the main slide deck and by popular request Don Campbell's slide deck as well.

    PLUS cleaned up and added the IMMENSE Q&A LOG & all the resource links I dropped in chat.

    NOTE: This Q & A log is unique in that Myles asked the audience to weigh in with content ideas. Look for the word "ideas" at the beginning of the Q to see all the great content generation ideas that were shared!

    See it all in the top post and video coming soon!

    Don's idea is great. We've used it internally to create our descriptions and we've used it for others. I know a content creator who simply had a business describe itself, and asked for descriptions of every aspect of the business that was outstanding, or competitively better, or wherein customers described why they purchased and bought from this business/ service. Questionnaires are great. Work on them. Improve them over time with insights.

    It could be something as mundane as convenience. We are more convenient to every home and business in all of River City. The business could do the same thing as every competitor...but if they are the most convenient...blast it out.
