It’s Podcast Movement 2017 – where did the time go? Forget whatever you’ve heard about this event. The sheer numbers of Podcasters make it worth every dime – everything else is bonus (and what a bonus it is). So sad I missed last year. Thrilled to be back.
I was thrilled and honored to be asked to present at VidSummit 2016 on the topic of Multicasting. I’m writing this from my room at the hotel after meeting a few great folk at the initial networking party. This is going to be a great time.
Learn how to use your smartphone, tablet, or laptop to reach your audience RIGHT NOW with live streaming video.
Live internet video is easy to implement, usually free to use, and is here to stay. It is now a major player in both social media and online marketing and you don’t want to be left out. Social networks and online publishers like YouTube and Facebook, have partnered with the likes of Periscope, Livestream, and others to bring live, interactive video to audiences in the billions.
Expanding your reach with live Internet video is a two-step process: 1) understanding the technology that makes it possible and 2) leveraging the time-tested truths of marketing and social influence that drive real results.
I had a chance to interview Luria Petrucci (you might remember her as Cali Lewis) about what she’s learned over the last 10 years of doing video online. This leader in the video podcasting, online video and live video space shares so much in this piece – I recommend you watch it and take a few notes in the process.
Luria and I will doing a Webinar (that won’t be free on Facebook, but you’ll only need an email to sign up) on Live Video. You can grab your free ticket for that at HowToStreamVideo.Live.
When you like a page as a page (liking a Facebook Page as a Facebook Page), you have the opportunity to tag those that you have liked inside of your posts – as well as add to the network nature of the world’s largest social network.
In this less than 60 second video, I show you the steps you need to take – I show you how to like a page as a page. You can do this, it’s pretty easy, and if Facebook changes the process again (but still lets us like a Facebook Page as a Facebook Page), I’ll do what I can to update you here.
If you ever wondered how to embed a YouTube Video (without all of that extra stuff)? The attached video shows you how to embed a YouTube video into a blog or web page using a special tool (FREE 0 from our friends at TubeBuddy) that let’s you get rid of all of the extra stuff that usually comes with an embedded YouTube Video.
I am so pleased to be able to catch up with my contemporaries at Social Media Marketing World 2016. No doubt Michael Stelzner and (his always amazing) team will again pull out all of the stops to make great things happen.

In a few days, I’m heading to the country of Oman on behalf of the U.S. Embassy and the State Department as part of their public diplomacy program. I’ll be doing a few workshops for audiences ranging from tech incubators to university students with topics as broad-reaching as “From Passion To Payday” to “Using Social Media To Build Relationships.” I also have a number of consulting sessions scheduled and hope to have some time to see the country. Should be an incredible trip.
From the research I’ve done, Oman looks like an amazing country. Their history is deep and rich and the people look to be as progressive thinking as anyone else I might have had the privilege to present in front of, or consult with. As excited as I am to explore this new region of the world (for me), I’m perhaps even more excited of what might come from this trip. Somehow, I don’t see this ending when I head home on the plane.
The Internet has made it possible for the entire world to be linked in ways that seem almost science fiction just a few years past. This planet of ours is now connected in ways we couldn’t have dreamed possible when we first started our businesses.
It would be crazy not to take advantage of this new reality.
If you have a few minutes, check your web, YouTube, or Podcast stats. Is there a country, or a batch of them, that you couldn’t locate on a world map today? Maybe you want to change that.
Wondering where your future customers or partners will be coming from?
Think globally. It’s kind of how this Internet thing works.
