Urban Vancouver – Festival and Culture Sounds podcasts

Urban Vancouver podcast cover

Over the years, i’ve assembled various recording of Vancouver-centric cultural events, parades, festival, street-strolls, sound-seeing and other miscellany. I bundle and publish under the vaguely euphemistic moniker of “Urban Vancouver”.

As such, i wrapped a proper podcast feed around the lil collection of – currently 7 – audio dispatches.

Stick this in your pod-o-rator if inclined to tempt your tolerance for ambiguity.

Sharing Social Marketing Stories for Communities – Community Roundtable, 2010

I share stories about growing Hootsuite on a grassroots level and break down tools and tactics in this “Conversations with Community Managers” audio pod interview from May 27, 2010.

Post: Conversations with Community Managers – Dave Olson (Hootsuite) Episode #9 features Dave Olson, Marketing Director for HootSuite, which helps people and companies track, monitor and manage their Twitter communities.

Audio: Download Community Roundtable Podcast with Dave Olson (17:27, 14MB, .mp3) or listen onboard:

Podcast topics include:

  • How the traditional title of “Marketing Director” translates to online marketing, customer service and social engagement
  • Turning metrics into meaning by realizing the personalities behind the community members
  • Tips on community: making members feel like they belong and are contributing, and that they are being heard and acknowledged
  • Stories about communities in the 1970s, enabled by “ditto machines” and other pre social media technology (the roots of Dave’s current personal projects are found at http://www.uncleweed.com/)
  • An example of a company (SubPop records) that started their community building in the pre-social media era (pre-Internet, even), and evolved it into the age of Twitter
  • Adding value, context and storytelling vs simply “attracting a crowd”

Blurb
