Podcasting from Trade Shows and Conferences

podcasting at conferences

I produced podcast interviews with keynote speakers, moderators and seminar panelists at the AD TECH conference in San Francisco.

As the traditional business of media shifts, from a model where broadcasters “push” content on their own schedules, to a model where consumers “pull” the content they want to a variety of devices, we hope marketers will follow suit.

Push and pull later became known as outbound and inbound digital marketing. But I was doing it 15 years ago.

In my view inbound digital marketing starts with owned media, which is the future of public relations.

Check out my Startups Guide to PR for an introduction to organic growth marketing using my owned, shared and earned media framework which provides a logical sequence for activating digital marketing initiatives.

I was retained by eCast to create valuable, original content marketing to appeal to their key audiences through organic search and social media, instead of relying solely on conventional transmission based “push” initiatives, like the distribution of press releases and, increasingly, email marketing.

I secured an impressive line-up of guests confirmed, including:
