I am thrilled to announce that CCF (Clarity Coverdale Fury) is sponsoring #Blogchat in September! CCF is an independent, full-service marketing and advertising agency dedicated to helping its clients discover and nurture the emotional connection between their brands and their customers. You can learn more about CCF at its website.
Additionally, CCF will be releasing a five-part series over the next few weeks into what CCF calls “The Conscious Consumer”. For the last year CCF has been studying this group of people and will be sharing what they have learned about them over the next couple of months on its blog. You can check out CCF’s blog to read their current posts to get a bit more background into who The Conscious Consumer is.
Rob and the team at CCF have been following #Blogchat for a while now, so they are familiar with the chat and how it works, and I’m delighted to be working with them. And along with that, here’s the topics we’ll be covering this month:
Tonight (September 1st) – Discovering Larger Trends and Ideas to Blog About. We’ll talk about not only how you can figure out what the ‘bigger ideas’ are you want to blog about, but how to discover larger ideas and themes that others are talking about as well. We’ll break the topic down tonight into two areas:
8:00-8:30 Central – How do you connect with others that share a common belief/idea/etc and provide them with coaching and support? And what would that coaching and support role look like? Via your blog, or something else?
8:30-9:00 Central – How do you keep up to date on the latest information so that you can discover larger trends? For example, with blogging if more bloggers were using mobile devices to post, how would we discover that? How would we research to learn about the larger trends? And when does it reach the tipping point of becoming a trend?
So that’s tonight’s topic, here’s what we’ll be covering for the rest of the month:
September 8th, special co-host Dave Delaney on Using Your Blog As a Networking Tool
September 15th, Where to Find Rich and Valuable Content For Blogging
September 22nd, How Blogs Impact Purchase Decisions
September 29th, OPEN MIC!
Also, if you are interested in sponsoring #Blogchat in November (October’s is already sold) then you can learn more about it here.
Hope to see you tonight, and if I don’t, have a great Labor Day!
