Hosted by Joyce Bender
Joyce welcomes author Chris Brogan to the show. He will discuss his book In The Impact Equation. In the book, Brogan shows that to make people truly care about what you have to say, you need more than just a good idea, trust among your audience, or a certain number of followers. You need a potent mix of all of the above and more. Read the Impact Equation to figure out what you’re doing right and wrong. Apply it to a blog, a tweet, a video, or a mainstream-media advertising cam¬paign. Use it to explain why a feature in a national newspaper that reaches millions might have less impact than a blog post that reaches a thousand passionate subscribers.
Tuesday at 11 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Variety Channel
