The Funniest Podcast About Social Media
That Helps You Grow Your Business

When Should I Pivot, and When Should I Quit? – Ep.70

This week on Social Media Unscrambled we didn’t talk about social media at all. In fact it turned into a giant therapy / brainstorming session with our friend Ralph M. Rivera and Carol Lynn Rivera. …And a quick Thank You to our sponsor, TribeBoost! A great way to grow your Twitter audience with relevant and quality people.

Anyway, for the entire episode Chris, David, Ralph and Carol Lynn discussed the importance of doing what you love first and finding a way to make that work into a viable, at least self-sustaining, business model. Chris and David freely admit they have no idea what they are doing, and at the conclusion of the show Ralph and Carol Lynn offered to facilitate a brainstorming session on what we need to do to make it work.

We then agreed that we should broadcast this episode on the air LIVE so people can offer us suggestions and we can walk through a marketing and social media campaign strategy session. Nothing like this exists that we know of so it should be fun.

Thanks for indulging. See you next time!

The Future of Social Media and Net Neutrality, with Amy Nowacoski – Ep.19

Our special guest Amy Nowacoski, Digital Strategist and Founder of Ginger Snap Works, makes a gaggle of good points as to why Twitter’s going public is significantly different than Facebook’s model. How is Twitter going to make money for their shareholders? And how will all social media companies deal with the fact that almost no one is clicking on obvious ads anymore? You’re becoming a smarter surfer, right?

Then Amy and co-host David Deutsch explore the possibilities of different internet money-making strategies including the freemium and pay to play models. The quality of content can also be radically different depending on the model…and the platform, too.

Net Neutrality (the idea that internet access should be equal to all) is about to be abolished in court, possibly. This could have a big impact on YOUR internet experience, actually. And mobile device data flow, since it’s growing so quickly, seems to be the issue that is turning the tide of the internet access issue. Amy and David make excellent points on this! Do you happen to agree?

Thanks Amy!
