Community Building On The Poor Boat – Naked Marketers podcast, 2010

naked marketers indeed
might i suggest this artwork for a forthcoming Naked Marketers episode cover ;-).

After debuting with a guest recording for the Naked Marketers direct from the Social Media Clubhouse Party bus at SXSW with John Biehler, I joined 2 of the hosts – Pete Wright and Dane Christensen – of this straight shooting marketing conversation podcast a few weeks later.

Give a listen to: Naked Marketers ep 5, On the Poor Boat

After a roadshow for my day job to Seattle, Austin and Toronto, we had plenty to talk about community building plus practical anecdotes demonstrating about the importance of content, creativity, inclusivity and sincerity in your social media powered outreach efforts.

Also laughed with co-host Dane Christensen about some college day community building projects including the Long Hair’s Club at at community college in Utah and his efforts to fenegle a travel scholarship to Northern Voice conference. Go Listen!

Note: While i share remarks about my day-job, my opinions are my own and should not be confused with official company information.

My pal Dane Christensen of Strike 10 media (@altadane) and his cohorts create a podcast called “Naked Marketers” described thusly:

“We are the naked marketers. Hosts Pete Wright, Megan Strand, and Dane Christensen and guests are dedicated to pulling back the veil on marketing ridiculousness and folly, and helping communicators develop a strategy that is both effective, authentic, and fully awesome.”

I was happy to oblige his request for a report from the streets of Austin Texas during SXSW.

I was delayed a few days as i basically lost my voice in the dry air and loud parties but i hopped on the Social Media Club party bus and recruited my pal (and SXSW speaker and ace photographer) John Biehler to help tell the story.

Topics range from bar-b-q and beer to marketing and locative check-in software apps.

The set-up is great as they offer a “caution this podcast is in Canadian” disclaimer off the top. Hope you manage to get the nuance and bear in mind, this was recorded on a brightly coloured converted school bus stockpiled with Molson Canadian beer and a batch of social media renegades.

Here’s their description of Boots on the Ground at SxSW Interactive with Dave Olsen from HootSuite Released Mar 19, 2010

“Direct from the technicolor party bus in Austin comes this SxSW update from our friends Dave Olsen and John Biehler. If you weren’t able to make to Austin for the event this year, check out what Dave and John have to say and then mark your calendars for this time next year, so you can join us for some beer and BBQ in Texas! Dave is a community wrangler for our favorite social media tool HootSuite, and you can find him on Twitter @DaveOHoots. John Biehler is an e-biz analyst and freakishly awesome photographer, and you can find him on Twitter @JohnBiehler.”
