Submit Your Questions for {Free} Webinar with Mitch Joel

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.

Gini,
 
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?
 
Thanks
Sean

@SeanClark VERY good one! I’m curious too. It shall be asked!

jasonkonopinski
3 years 8 months ago

@ginidietrich  @SeanClark I already know the answer to this question. 😀

ginidietrich
3 years 8 months ago

@jasonkonopinski  I’m sorry. If you’re not going to play the game the right way, you can’t go around boasting that you already had him on your podcast and asked him this very question. @SeanClark

jasonkonopinski

@ginidietrich  @SeanClark Kisses.

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.

belllindsay

@HowieG Fantastic! This question is IN, if I have anything to say about it. 🙂

@belllindsay hopefully you are still employed when the decision is made.

@mitchjoel  @HowieG Oh it’ll be in there!

lizreusswig

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?

ginidietrich
3 years 8 months ago

@lizreusswig Get connected with… one another? Customers? Set up WiFi?

lizreusswig
3 years 8 months ago

@ginidietrich – sorry not enough caffeine yet!  I was thinking in terms of outlets/channels (YouTube, FB, Twitter, Google+) &/or content (blogging, webinars)

ginidietrich
3 years 8 months ago

@lizreusswig  Got it!

HowieG
HowieG
3 years 8 months ago

@ginidietrich  @lizreusswig see my commenting yesterday rubbed off on you Gini! I mean who else would say Wi-Fi but me? Well @kenmueller @rdopping @bdorman264  maybe. @jasonkonopinski is now into Lenny Bruce one liners so not him. @belllindsay is still on page 3 of the Complete Ziggy collection even though she reads it every day.

ginidietrich

@HowieG Oy.

@HowieG  @ginidietrich  @lizreusswig  @kenmueller  @bdorman264  @jasonkonopinski  @belllindsay BTW, what’s wrong with WI-FI? Is it too jock-strap knuckle-dragger?

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!

ginidietrich
3 years 8 months ago

@John_Trader1 LOL! If you want to send me $50, I’ll gladly spend it on wine.

RebeccaTodd

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…

ginidietrich
3 years 8 months ago

@RebeccaTodd HAHAHAHAH! LOL!! I’m not really going to ask him that. Jeez.

RebeccaTodd
3 years 8 months ago

@ginidietrich …then how will I know?

ginidietrich
3 years 8 months ago

@RebeccaTodd If you’re like Lindsay, it’ll be before the end of the week so you won’t make it for the webinar, anyway.

RebeccaTodd
3 years 8 months ago

@ginidietrich …so, you hiring, G?

belllindsay
belllindsay

@RebeccaTodd  @ginidietrich Hey now.

jasonkonopinski
3 years 8 months ago

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.

ginidietrich
3 years 8 months ago

@jasonkonopinski Thank you for playing.

jasonkonopinski
3 years 8 months ago

@ginidietrich I’ll go back to rabble-rousing now. Carry on.

HowieG
HowieG
3 years 8 months ago

@jasonkonopinski  @ginidietrich I can answer that. Mitch doesn’t use pictures because his blogging platform doesn’t support video or photos. He is old skool.

TonyBennett

@jasonkonopinski  @ginidietrich Jason has too many good questions. I feel so inquisitively inferior (sigh).

jasonkonopinski
3 years 8 months ago

@TonyBennett @ginidietrich Sorry, Tony. I’ll go back to making fart jokes then.

mitchjoel
mitchjoel

@HowieG  @jasonkonopinski  @ginidietrich That’s not true, Howie… I post videos all of the time. As for photos? Tune into the webinar to find out why 🙂

bdorman264

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.

ginidietrich
3 years 8 months ago

@bdorman264  I think @belllindsay will be fired before the end of the week.

belllindsay
belllindsay

@ginidietrich  @bdorman264 Hey now.

TonyBennett
3 years 8 months ago

@ginidietrich  @bdorman264  @belllindsay Lindsay has enrolled in my superhero protection services… please refrain from any potentially threatening comments toward her and everyone leaves in one piece.

bdorman264
3 years 8 months ago

@TonyBennett  Just back away from yourself………:).

@ginidietrich  @bdorman264  @belllindsay 
There is an art to making “Rampant Unprofessionalism” look like silly mistakes anyone can make which is why I think you are underestimating the Canadian chick .;)

belllindsay

@Joshua Wilner/A Writer Writes  @ginidietrich  @bdorman264 “the Canadian chick” – love it. Might get a t-short done!

@bdorman264  @HowieG I heard the bookies on High Street are already taking bets!

jasonkonopinski
3 years 8 months ago

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

ginidietrich
3 years 8 months ago

@jasonkonopinski Oh that’s a good one! I should ask myself that one.

belllindsay
belllindsay
3 years 8 months ago

@ginidietrich  @jasonkonopinski No one who loves content (i.e. ART in all its forms) the way that Mitch does will ever stop creating. That’s my feeling anyhow.

allenmireles
3 years 8 months ago

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

@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
3 years 8 months ago

@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.)

Joshua Wilner/A Writer Writes

I would like to know more about his favorite platforms.

ginidietrich

@Joshua Wilner/A Writer Writes For swimming?

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.

ginidietrich
3 years 8 months ago

@rdopping I am kind of awesome, aren’t I??

deborahhinton

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.

ginidietrich
3 years 8 months ago

@deborahhinton A serious question. Thank you!!

deborahhinton
3 years 8 months ago

@ginidietrich Hope it makes the cut and we hear the serious answer : ) Thanks Gini

jonmikelbailey

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

ginidietrich
3 years 8 months ago

@jonmikelbailey I must research this before I ask it. Did you register? Are you going to be laughing at me when I ask?

jonmikelbailey
3 years 8 months ago

@ginidietrich  @jonmikelbailey Yes, registered. He wrote a post on it. And yes, I will laugh. I will try and come up with a serious question.

RebeccaTodd
3 years 8 months ago

@jonmikelbailey  @ginidietrich I love my neti pot! Not quite as good as snorting some fresh ocean water, but it does the trick.

jonmikelbailey
3 years 8 months ago

My serious question – In post about toasters and billboards (http://www.twistimage.com/blog/archives/the-future-of-marketing-you-connected-to-your-toaster) 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?

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!

ginidietrich
3 years 8 months ago

@crestodina Oh that’s a good one! Adding to my list.
