Join Margie Clayman for a Special Livefyre Q&A Today

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.

To which they replied, “But your license says Gini Dietrich.” And then she told them that unicorns aren’t real unless you believe they are real and walked out.

 @ginidietrich oh I was just typing this question. Gini’s faster. 

margieclayman
margieclayman
3 years 9 months ago

 @ginidietrich Well, as a person who has my feet in the world of marketing “IRL” and online, it seemed like there was a lot of misinformation being passed around about marketing – sometimes by people who are very well respected as social media practitioners. I wanted to offer an alternative story to some of those tales.

ryancox

 @margieclayman  @ginidietrich I love this premise. It’s one I’d actually be interested in reading. Misinformation happens and it can quickly trend to be ‘fact’

I’m steeling a question from the post b/c it’s a good one…how did you find so many lies the online world tells us about marketing? Which one stands out to you the most?

margieclayman
margieclayman
3 years 9 months ago

 @yvettepistorio I didn’t really have to find them – they jumped out at me! A lot of the most influential people in the social media world don’t have a solid marketing background, and I feel they aren’t always held accountable for what they preach about marketing because of their clout. Or Klout, as the case may be. 
 
As for which stands out the most – that’s a tough one, but I think the most damaging myths are the ones that insinuate that social media has no ROI or that you can’t measure social media marketing campaigns. 

ginidietrich
3 years 9 months ago

 @margieclayman  Amen.

 @margieclayman   I have a Graphic Designer background, and am now just learning about Marketing. I like the fact that I’m not a trained Marketer or had never taken a course on marketing basics, which means that I am free to think about marketing within this new realm without preconceptions.

Which myth is doing the most damage to myth-mesmerized marketers? #alliteration

margieclayman
margieclayman
3 years 9 months ago

 @JeffHaws I think the myths indicating that ROI doesn’t exist in the world of social media is the most damaging. Ultimately, if you are investing money in a marketing tactic and you aren’t measuring it to see how you’re doing, you’re dumping money down a drain.

If snarky and smushy were mutually exclusive traits, which would you choose?

 @Steve Birkett definitely smushy. Snarky can be fun, but if it’s all the time it can get boring and/or offensive. 

Steve Birkett
3 years 9 months ago

 @margieclayman Exxxcellent. So, given that they’re *not* mutually exclusive, my follow up is what ratio do you recommend (and what are you, in reality)? 🙂 

ryancox

Give me one lie that you yourself did not realize was a lie, or might have even presented as fact once. lie=myth

margieclayman
margieclayman
3 years 9 months ago

 @ryancox I think I’ve been guilty of overplaying the importance of engagement. I think you need to be able to do it, but if you’re using social media for marketing, you need to know how to use that engagement to actually accomplish your goals.

 @CoreyTheInternTull learn the marketing foundation as it existed before social media first. Then integrate social media into that knowledge.

If you had a community of 100K, and you needed to activate a community of marketers, what are 3 tactics you would utilize?

margieclayman
margieclayman
3 years 9 months ago

 @ryancox That’s a difficult question – I would say by the time you have that many followers, it’s going to be hard to categorize/segment them. You need to start out with a plan of how you want to build your community. Going backwards can be very tricky.

belllindsay

 @yvettepistorio I enjoyed The Testament even though the ending really ticked me off. I’m much more a non-fiction reader than a fiction reader. I just finished A Prayer for Owen Meaney and The Legend of Baggar Vance and I enjoyed both of those tremendously.

ryancox
ryancox

 @ginidietrich  @margieclayman  @Steve Birkett I just find this beyond interesting as a new form of #hashtag chat. Like Gini and Steve said though, the ability to see transcript is the “can’t get over the hump” differentiating factor I guess

Steve Birkett
3 years 9 months ago

 @ginidietrich  @margieclayman  @ryancox Search facility on Twitter helps keep track of progress, I find. Search # and Q1, Q2 etc, to focus on a specific section. Any fast & frenetic chat makes it tough, though.

allenmireles

I’m late to the discussion but have wondered why you suspended your blog @margieclayman ?

margieclayman
margieclayman
3 years 9 months ago

 @allenmireles A few reasons. I found that I was being too distracted by personal gratification. My blog was enjoyable but I kept wondering, “Why am I not getting more tweets? Why aren’t more people commenting? Why didn’t I make this or that list?” I don’t want that to be my focus and I don’t need it to be. Also, it’s a time thing. With three posts a week at our agency blog now, 3 posts a month at Razoo, and then guest posts hither and yon, I’m just fried.

allenmireles

 @margieclayman Totally makes sense. I just realized I hadn’t asked you and hadn’t read the post where you explained why. 🙂

There are so many great questions that I MIGHT be able to resist my urge to ask an off the wall question.

I remember your post about the blogger hugsb back… I really liked it. So my question, not directly related but similar, is who are 5 people that you consider your PR/SM/Marketing Yoda(s). And you can’t say Gini because we already know that she’s like the coolest person in the universe(not just on earth).

ginidietrich

You’re very active on Facebook. Why?

 @belllindsay Well, Facebook is my place online where I can sort of be a bit loose and have fun. I’m more personal there than I am on Twitter. Also, I am verbose so Twitter is kind of harder for me 🙂

What qualifies as “social proof” when you look at someone’s online presence? Does quantity ever trump quality?

 @Steve Birkett I think everyone looks for different things. I look for people who are talking to people apart from saying “Thanks for following.” I look for people who participate in chats, because that tells me they want to exchange ideas, either to share theirs or to learn more. i know that probably a third of my followers are spam bots, so I hope I don’t get judged just based on quantity 🙂

 @Steve Birkett The tyranny of social proof makes me crazy. Sometimes the metrics people use are simply horrific.

 @thejoshuawilner  @Steve Birkett My favourite new metric is FLOE (Facebook Level of Engagement) because it doesn’t really matter how many people follow your page, but if you have 0% FLOE why even bother?

Steve Birkett

 @Rodriguez247  @thejoshuawilner Mostly true. Though some major celebs and orgs simply use it as another newsfeed, which suits their fans just fine. Although they do tend to ‘Like’ that content a lot in those examples, which probably torpedoes my point.

 @thejoshuawilner @MargieClayman Surely an army of bots is a valuable measure? What if they become self-aware?? 😉

Do Kotler’s marketing methods still matter in this day and age? I still keep a copy of his marketing textbook from my undergrad degree on my desk. Should I just torch it?

 @John_Trader1 I don’t think there’s any reason to burn past marketing knowledge. A lot of the basic principles are the same – they’re just being carried out in different ways. Marketing is still about getting people to buy your stuff. The fact that we can email people, call people, or now talk to people online doesn’t change that basic fact.
