Join Margie Clayman for a Special Livefyre Q&A Today

By: Gini Dietrich | August 15, 2012 |

We’re going to try something new here today.

We’re going to have a live Q&A with Margie Clayman, the recent author of The ABCs of Marketing Myths.

I’ve participated in such things at Danny Brown’s blog (he’s going to be so proud I’m stealing from him again) and we did a live chat on Spin Sucks during BlogWorld in 2011.

The cool thing is that Livefyre enables all of this so big shout-out to them!

But today is a little bit different. At noon ET (that’s 11:00 CT, 10:00 MT, and 9:00 PT for those of you who can’t do time zones), Margie is going to be hanging out in the comments so you can ask her anything and everything about the book, why she put her blog on hiatus, and how much she loves me (tons). 

You can ask her why she decided to write a book using the alphabet as her guiding course. How she was able to come up with so many lies the online world tells about marketing. How her brain is able to give you marketing lessons in the form of fictional movie characters (cough, Miracle Max, cough). Or why she decided to self-publish and what that experience has been like.

In order to participate, all you have to do is:

  • Make sure you have a Livefyre account or be ready to sign in with one of your social networks. I learned last night that Livefyre works better on Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer. So keep that in mind if you’re a Firefox user.
  • Set a reminder for noon ET today.
  • Create a list of questions to ask Margie about work, life, love, and monkeys.
  • Come back here, scroll to the bottom, and write a comment in the form of a question. As soon as you hit “post comment,” Margie will see it and reply to you. You can even join the conversation around questions others are asking, if you like.

We’ll be here for an hour so you can join us the entire time or step in and out between noon and 1:00. It’s entirely up to you; just make sure you’re here before 12:59.

Wow what a cool idea! I got the tag in twitter but did not understand the logistics of this until now that I come to the actual post. Sorry I missed the fun! Will you be holding a segment like this again?  << and I guess that becomes my question:))

I  get to be last now! What was your defining moment as a writer or blogger? Certainly we all have those moments where we realize we need to just keep doing what we are doing no matter how hard it gets. What was that moment for you?

I got the last question. Clearly, this says good things about me as a person.

What are your thoughts on Facebook allowing brands to be able to advertise in the news feeds of Facebook users who aren’t fans of their pages.

 @NancyD68 I was lucky, actually. I had a lot. Having posts tweeted by Chris Brogan in my early baby days was pretty amazing. Getting named to various lists as a baby blogger was amazing. But I would say the most defining moment was in the time after Trey Pennington and Bruce Serven died, when I just didn't feel like doing anything online. I wrote a blog post basically letting people know that my heart wasn't in it at that time, and the response I got was pretty darned amazing. It made me feel like people really cared about what I was writing and that they valued my blog. What could be better than that? :)

 @Rodriguez247 As a Facebook user I hate it. As a marketer I'm obligated to say it makes sense :) I'd rather them make the brand pages go back to how they were a few months ago, where "fan" comments were featured prominently. All interaction is now stuffed into the upper right corner. Totally defeats the purpose, to my mind.
