HAF Chat: Let's Talk About Marketing!!
« on: June 27, 2010, 10:48:25 AM »
This is a diverse and talented community at all different stages of "internet life."  But what we all have in common is marketing whatever it is we do!  In the first HAF Chat, let's share our marketing strategies...  What works?  What doesn't work?  Do you have an idea that needs refinement? 

Whether you're a 'newbie' or a seasoned member, let's all get together in Chat on Wednesday, June 30, 2010 at 6:00 PM MDT and share our marketing war stories!

Sounds like a good one!  Andrew and I will be out of town with very little internet access so we won't be able to attend.  let us know how it goes and if someone comes up with the magic formula, but sure to let us know what it is.

I'm afraid I'm a chat no-show almost everywhere I go, so I'll take this opportunity to share with you that most of the Google Alerts I receive come from Craft Juice, Flickr and our very own HAF ...

LOL!  East Coast = 8 PM, Central = 7 PM,  Mountain = 6 PM, Pacific 5 PM,  Hawaii = 2 PM (I think).  And I blew it.... in the shout box, I typed 5 MDT...  It should be 6!  I'll fix it when I post there again tomorrow.

 :)

* Haffina counts forward about 10 hours and figures that will mean she will be asleep during the chat

So I will share that most of my google alerts come from Plurk and Twitter. :)

Dealing with global time zones was going to be an issue.  I found a global time zone converter...  Here is the link: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html.  It looks like 6 PM Wednesday USA/Utah time is 10 AM Thursday Australia/Sydney!  You are living in my future!  Cool! 

I think that Google Alerts need to be a large part of this marketing chat, too!  I know so little about them.

There were only four of us there.  BUT, the four of us discussed marketing for an hour and a half!  Each of us knew something the other didn't.  I am going to schedule another forum-wide chat this week, but I wanted to get past this holiday weekend.  The popular choice for the next chat (among the four of us) was critiques.  So I'm thinking that we can critique a single item from the participants, then we should be able to do several in an hour or so.

Basically, it was fun, and I wasn't there alone.  So I figure it was a success!

Yeah, I got caught up in things and couldn't make it, which is too bad because it's a discussion I'd really liked to have had.  What's with life getting in the way of chatting, anyway?
