Welcome to Don’t Call Me a Guru!
Two friends who spend a lot of time on and thinking about social media decided they wanted to get together to record a social media podcast. This is it!
We’ll be putting out a new episode at the end of each month and hope you find our discussion and insights useful and applicable to your own social media work. We also hope to feature/interview others working in the social marketing field so you should get some fresh takes on a range of social media topics.
Here’s a sampling of some of what we talk about in our first episode:
- “It’s impossible to be an expert on social media.” (click to tweet)
- “You need to be willing to be wrong as a social media strategist.” (click to tweet)
- “There’s a fine line between great social media automation and being lazy.” (click to tweet)
- “You shouldn’t just be using social media to shout out your message.” (click to tweet)
- “Things people share the most online generally elicit emotions.” (click to tweet)
- “Even bad guys make good GIFs.” (click to tweet)
- Rory Lee (@rorzle, RoryLeeDesign.com) – designer of the Don’t Call Me a Guru logo
- Doug Hoyer (@doughoyer, DougHoyer.Bandcamp.com) – created the Don’t Call Me a Guru music
- The episode was recorded at the Edmonton Public Library (@EPLdotCA, EPL Makerspace)
For Episode 2, we’ll be talking all things social media for non-profits, and have our first guest on the show: Devin Komarniski, Marketing and Communications Manager at the Bissell Centre.
We’ll also try to reduce the number of times we say “um.”
Hope you tune in!
