Submit Your Questions for {Free} Webinar with Mitch Joel

By: Gini Dietrich | January 8, 2013 | 

It’s a new year, which means some fun and different things are coming to Spin Sucks and Spin Sucks Pro!

First, we are going to continue our Livefyre Q&A series with authors and already have January through July confirmed. As soon as  we hear from a couple of other people, we’ll publish the calendar so you can be sure to stop by on those dates.

The other thing we’re doing is trying something new with the webinars. Rather than charge you for them, we’re going to offer January and February for free. The idea is that we’ll be able to get sponsors, starting in March, so they remain free to you.

This month (January 24, to be exact, so register now and save the date!) we’re going to have Mitch Joel (author of Six Pixels of Separation and the forthcoming Ctrl, Alt, Delete) and, rather than have him present slides, I’m going to do an on-camera interview with him.

We think this will be a cool and interactive way for you to learn, but also ask questions of your own. We’ll use the chat feature and take questions from you during the broadcast.

I’m going to ask him about his new book, how he fits writing (he writes a blog post every day) into his days, how he manages to run an agency and travel and speak like a maniac, how many frequent flyer miles he has, and what he tells other speakers as they’re going up on stage.

And you have an opportunity to submit questions ahead of time. You know, just in case there are a gazillion questions the day of and we don’t have time to get to yours.

Lindsay Bell has already submitted her questions (things such as, “How long do you think it’ll be before I get fired for rampant unprofessionalism?”) and now it’s your turn.

If you have questions you’ve always wanted to ask Mitch – about his agency, Twist Image, about his books, about life, about his famous friends, or about anything in general – now is your chance.

Either leave your question(s) in the comments here, reply to the email when you receive this blog post in your inbox, or send me a private email, tweet, LinkedIn message, or Facebook message.

And save the date. It’s January 24 from noon-1:00 ET. It’s free, but our software only handles 100 people so get yourself registered now so you don’t want to miss it.

    I’d like to ask Mitch how he manages his time?
    He produces a weekly podcast, writes blog posts all week, is writing a book, reads extensively, does webinars like this and speaks at numerous conferences. That’s not to mention running a successful company and having a young family!
    Does he have a schedule, a plan or does he just do stuff?

  2. HowieG says:

    My question is how could mitch give up the incredibly exciting rock and roll life to get into advertising which plays such a little roll in the world compared to say the imapact led zeppellin ane black sabbath had on the world and modern culture.

  3. lizreusswig says:

    Wow…what an amazing opportunity!  Thanks, @ginidietrich !  My question for Mitch – What is the best way for entrepreneurs or smaller businesses with limited resources of time & money to get connected?

  4. John_Trader1 says:

    I have to admit that it felt a little naughty to “Purchase” the Spin Sucks Webinar for free. Thanks for the complimentary professional development @ginidietrich and for lending your time Mitch. Looking forward to this!

  5. RebeccaTodd says:

    Thank you very much for offering this chance for professional development! I have registered and will attend from wherever I may be. I will keep thinking, but I kinda feel Lindsay’s question applies to me, too…

  6. I’d love to hear Mitch’s reason for *not* including images in his blog posts, given the conventional wisdom that says images are becoming the new social currency.

  7. bdorman264 says:

    What is the over/under that @belllindsay  will be fired before March for rampant un-professionalism?……….:)?
    Ok, ok, I’ll commit you can finish up your calendar now. 
    Sounds like a pretty cool gig; make sure you get sponsors so it stays free. You know I’m all about free, right? @HowieG should be able to step up, he’s big-time now.

  8. Ooh. I have another one: what, if anything, would mark the end of his content creation?

  9. allenmireles says:

    And, do his knees ever knock when he gets up on stage these days? I’ve heard it said that it’s good to still have butterflies when you’re presenting. Does Mitch Joel still have them, and if so, how does he handle that?

    • PattiRoseKnight says:

      @allenmireles Gini’s been speaking for awhile and she still get the jitters before speaking.  I would not be a good public speaker – I’d completely freeze up.

    • ginidietrich says:

      @allenmireles I like this one! I ask it of other speakers when I see them live. I definitely shall ask it. (And, yes, to @PattiRoseKnight ‘s point, I still get SUPER nervous.)

  10. I would like to know more about his favorite platforms.

  11. rdopping says:

    Hey Gini. How awesome are you?
    I have registered even though I have heard Mitch speak many times. Great guy. I would ask what his process is for researching his posts. Cheers.

  12. Hi Gini and @MitchJoel.  I’m wondering if Mitch sees any signs that his clients are designing converged media strategies to include employees and if not what he thinks is stopping them. [of course, I’m assuming clients are designing and beginning to execute converged media strategies – if not, then there’s an obvious replacement question].  Thanks you two.  Looking forward to the conversation.

  13. I would like to know if Mitch has ever tried NeilMed, similar to Neti Pot. It is awesome!

  14. My serious question – In post about toasters and billboards ( you made some excellent points about the need for balance in these exciting connected times. How do you see the “marketing department” changing in the future? Will it be gradual or will companies need to dramatically overhaul their entire approach to marketing?

  15. crestodina says:

    It would be interesting to hear his perspective on ghost writers, author identity and outsourcing content development. I know that’s a broad question, but people often ask me about working with partners and vendors for content marketing. I’m still trying to figure this one out!
