It has come to my attention that Social Media Edge has had only about 100,000 listeners because it is not widely understood what it is. When questioning a few people I trust who are not regularly listeners it was soon obvious they had no idea what the 3 year old podcast is about.
When I stared naming some of the guests people were stumped at why they did not know and how they could have missed 3 years of some of the best social marketing training, for free, available in the world. In fact let me drop a few names: Laura Fitton author of Twitter for Dummies, Chris Brogan author of Trust Agents, Jay Baer author of Now Revolution, Shel Isreal author of Naked Conversations, Shane Gibson author of Guerrilla Social Media Marketing with Jay Conrad Levinson and the list goes on and on and on ...
It's my fault you don't know. I have never really posted here in Active Rain about what Social Media Edge Radio, the podcast, is all about. After three years it's probably time. So here is all you need to do.
Save time on Tuesdays at noon eastern to listen live and get in the chatroom or listen later at iTunes
The short history of Social Media Edge
I founded the podcast in August of 2008 as "Twitter Tuesday". In December 2008 Jason Crouch joined me as a guest and I invited him back to co-host the show regularly. In March we switched to the name Social Media Edge (which belonged to my friend Brian Person) and we've had 100's of truly amazing guests since then. The list, in fact, is much too long to publish here but you can see all of their faces at the Facebook page.
In summer of 2009 I invited Mike Mueller to bring a regular tech report about some tip or trick with social media. For a while he hosted his own show on Monday's on our same JCKC network.
Our first big time regular listener AND show sponsor was Clint Miller of Real Estate Client Referrals.
Later I invited Jeremy Blanton to contribute as a community builder and he still does to this day.
We have now had over 100,000 listens and most shows have listens in the 1000s. So, why haven't you subscribed and started listening? Should we call it a weekly live webinar featuring some of the very VERY top names in Social Media Marketing and Technology or can we just leave it as Social Media Edge?
Social Media Edge Radio - seriously true professionals who won't misguide you with some crap they made up to sell more books and seminars. Every Tuesday at Noon eastern.
REtechRadio - part of the REtech family. Great tech information and updates from people who have the answers, people who speak and product and service users.
