BlogTalkRadio is Back From SXSW!

by Deb Ng

I just had the most amazing few days. I spent some time in the beautiful city of Austin, TX at the South by Southwest Interactive festival. To say the experience was a positive one is an understatement. I, along with BlogTalkRadio’s John Havens and Chris Hogan, spent time talking with some of the greatest folks on earth.

I wish to personally thank all of our hosts and listeners who stopped by the BlogTalkRadio pod at the Pepsico Podcasting Playground to tell us how much they enjoy what we do. Your support means so much to us. Meeting you face to face means even more.

I would also like to take this time to say “welcome aboard” to our new hosts, especially those of you who signed up after talking with us at SXSW.

A special shoutout to the folks at PepsiCo who provided us a unique place to interact with the community and broadcast live, and also to WalMart’s 11Moms.  You may know some of the 11Moms as BlogTalkRadio hosts. In person they are smart, savvy and delightful, and I enjoyed all the time I spent with them. I look forward to seeing you all again!  Another shout out to Chris Brogan for becoming a part of the BlogTalkRadio team for the weekend. It’s always a pleasure chatting with you.

I met community management folks from brands such as Best Buy Remix and we’re already brainstorming ways to bring our communities together. I was also able to pick the brains of the best minds in social media. I learned so much, I’m ready to burst.

Thank you South by Southwest, thank you Austin, thank you to the BlogTalkRadio community and a very special thank you to BlogTalkRadio for allowing me to attend this extraordinary event.

Chris Brogan’s Greatest Hits

Social media expert, Chris Brogan

by Deb Ng

So we’ve been talking about social media as way to bring in traffic and build community. All of our discussions on the blog, BlogTalkRadio Insider and our forums are terrific and yielding great results. But it occurred to me we have a wealth of information in the BlogTalkRadio vault. We have interviews with Chris Brogan, Guy Kawasaki, Jeremy Owyang, Robert Scoble and many other leaders in this field. With that in mind, I thought it might be cool and useful to bring out each expert’s greatest hits.

Today, we’re going to start with someone I had the pleasure of meeting last fall at BlogWorld Expo ’09, Chris Brogan. What impresses me about Chris is that he puts on no airs, the same regular guy you see on Twitter or his blog, is the same regular guy you get in person. That he really knows his stuff is the icing.

Chris Brogan is no stranger to BlogTalkRadio. Here are his greatest hits:

  • In December 2007, Chris joined Alan Levy to talk about social media and social networking.
  • Kris Smith sat down with Chris Heuer and Chris Brogan at SXSW interactive last year, to talk about the current state of social, new and emerging media.
  • John Havens interviewed Chris in October 2007 to discuss community issues and marketing in a pitch averse environment.
  • In December 2007 John Havens and Chris chatted about transparency and using Twitter as a way to increase a businesses transparency.
  • Innovations Insider‘s first show in August 2008 featured a discussion with Chris on how companies are using social media as a channel to reach new audiences and how social media can help organizations reach their business goals.
  • Oh, look! John Havens features another discussion with Chris Brogan who was joined by Fast Company’s Lynne D. Johnson and lijit’s Ronald Lewis. (It’s looking more and more like a man crush, John)
  • Chris visited with Talking HR in December to discuss social media and business.
  • In August 2008, John Lawlor spoke with Chris Brogan & David Alston about the results of their TWebinar.com project.
  • When Chris visited with Ron Hudson in October, 2008, he spoke about how to use social media and social networks to build relationships and deliver value.
  • Chris joined Jim Turner on BlogWorld Expo Radio in October, 2007.

Just another way to learn from the best on BlogTalkRadio. Follow Chris on twitter @chrisbrogan.

Blog Action Day: How You Can Participate

As we posted earlier, BlogTalkRadio is taking part in an historic Blog Action Day event, a 12 hour talkathon for poverty. Lots of people are asking how they can help or participate in Blog Action Day events.  Here are a few things you can do:

  • Blog about Blog Action Day. Even if you don’t have poverty-related experiences to share or facts to relay, you can still link to participating blogs, point everyone to our talkathon or the Blog Action Day website, post our BlogTalkRadio Blog Action Day talkathon player on your website or just talk about the coolness of the day.
  • Tweet out Blog Action day updates on Twitter. The hash tag for the event is #bad08. Memorize it. Embrace it. Use it.
  • Talk about what’s going on. Discuss poverty and Blog Action Day on your favorite forums and social networks.
  • Visit participating blogs and offer your support in the comments section.
  • Donate to a worthy charity.
  • Listen to our talkathon, take part in the chat or call in to say hello on October 15!

To give you some incentive, we’re awarding prizes to random Blog Action Day bloggers. If you hear us mention your blog on the air, you have an hour to call in and win a prize.

What are these prizes we speak of? How about high-end beauty-product swag bags courtesy of Beauty Fix, or Jewelry from the Leakey Collection? And what blogger wouldn’t be interested in receiving a 30-minute consulting session from Chris Brogan, or a copy of Liz Strauss‘ or Chris Garrett‘s latest ebook? Performancing is even donating $100 to one lucky winner’s charity of choice. That’s just the tip of the ice berg! Thanks to generous sponsors, there will be prizes offered all day.

How are you participating?

Resources for Hosts: 20 Free Social Media eBooks

I use various social media sites to help promote BlogTalkRadio segments and services and I know many of our hosts do too.

I often hear from hosts who are unsure of how to take advantage of social media sites, or which sites are the best for their segments or niches.

Here’s something that can help!

Chris Brogan has assembled an awesome list of 20 Free eBooks About Social Media. Some of these are obviously for blogs, but that doesn’t mean you can’t read them for marketing ideas. Others such as the Podcst Marketing eBook or the Geeks Guide to Promoting Yourself with Twitter are sure to be helpful.

If you find yourself with some free time, do check it out. You may find some great tips for bringing in the masses.
