    If you haven't caught our podcast, I encourage you to check out some episodes. The past one was with US Congresswoman Susan Brooks. But we also featured great entrepreneurs, authors, and thought leaders.
    I'm pumped to bring Gary Vee to the show and have him (unapologetically) shed some wake-up voice to education.

    #6 hi Lenzy :) why not just tell that ;) "we only can deliver within 50 miles of -name of the town/city/region/country etc.... lol :) and all the other people who can view your "post"/"article"/"product" etc again hahahah is great mouth-to-mouth promo if "they" liked what they saw/read.... heard..... and even if they donยดt like "it" (?donยดt know which product you mean) people will start talking ;) (and you can use hashtags too at several platforms to "encircle" your "wanted" "segment".... or draw the attention to a certain group/location and so on.... here at beBee hashtags ((sub) groups ;) wonยดt work, neither at LinkedIn.... Twitter, Google+, Facebook, Instagram, and ? have those "sub groups" so thatยดs all I know (for now ;) to give you a bit of "pollen" (Blรผtenstaub) to "collect" :) you are in charge of turning that into honey ;) lol :)

    This is a very helpful methodology, @Juan Imaz. Do you have any tips on how to apply this geographically? Specifically, I'm talking about businesses that have a product or service that they can only deliver within 50 miles or only in this region or that region. How does BeBee facilitate geography-based engagement for those businesses that can only service customers that are physically near them? It's great to be able to produce content for the world to see, but some of us need to engage the world "and especially people in this little corner of the world."

By sharing common interests and learning more about each other you can strengthen your relationships which enable loyalty and referrals. Hives facilitate you in finding your potential customers.

    #42 I agree, Michael, but would caution that, as the number of participants grows, the harder it is to herd the cats. They not only have to leave their egos at the door, but also the their propensity to speak without first reading and seeking to understand. Giving a "moderator" the tools to keep a discussion approximately on point would be essential to achieving success. IMO. Cheers!

    #40 Phil, what this platform can evolve to is what you and Jim have demonstrated with your collaborations. If you generalize this two person collaboration to an interactive collaborative platform, rather than a sequential comment capture platform, then who knows what would emerge. One of the (implicit) rules has to be "leave your ego at the door". What I have seen in the collaborations between you and Jim has been impressive. The evolution and refinement of an idea by the contributions of two people. Scale that and the value generated could be huge. Toss in a problem. Ideas are thrown in. A practical, implementable solution begins to emerge. Crowd sourcing a solution with every contributor participating with good intent, ego set aside, to deliver the best possible solution.
    Javier, that would be pretty awesome.

    #30 I agree @david frick! producing content is not an approach for immediate impact! It is a medium-long term investment but it is very powerful !
    david frick
    26/04/2017 #30 david frick
    #28 You bring up some great points @Anne Thornley-Brown. My experience has been that producing content is neither a hobby nor an approach for immediate impact. I like how other colleagues refer to it as a long-tail approach that integrates well with social selling, digital marketing, SEO, email programs, and enterprise-level CRMs. I still have people reading and commenting on article I published three years ago!

    One of the challenges leaders have with with implementing content strategy is that it is a specialized combination of art and science (kinda like advertising was back in the 6o's). We know that it works, but it is still new in execution and has lots of kinks to uncover. Unlike big media approaches of yesteryear, today there are infinite channels, strategies, keywords, and opportunities for results. There are LOTS more variables, but the good news is that we can test and interact with them easily.

    Lastly, my direct contracts have been less than $100K and the B2B2B contracts have likely been 2-5x that size. Companies like HubSpot, Buffer, and Hootsuite (and plenty more) are making much larger investments into developing platforms that serve this specific industry. It lets me believe it is very effective at all sizes of business transactions.

    B2B marketers are indeed finding success with content marketing: 62% of B2B marketers in North America say their organization's overall approach to content marketing has been much more or somewhat more successful than a year ago, according to B2B Content Marketing: 2017 Benchmarks, Budgets and Trendsโ€”North America.

    Probably this can help

    #26 @david frick The difference between producing content as a hobby and producing content for business is that expected R.O.I. Why would any business want to invest a lot of time in any activity unless it was a charitable endeavour if there is no expectation of R.O.I. Have the contracts been with large companies? What is your focus?

    Excellent post! I'm all about content marketing. It reinforces your brand and it creates solid relationships that are useful for: 1) Collaboration (this will amplify your message / visibility / authority); 2) Converting followers into clients / customers
    david frick
    25/04/2017 #26 david frick
    #24 Hi @Anne, I work in a variety of ways in the B2B space and have earned several contracts from the content I post. Content is a way of becoming a trusted advisor with your audience while they figure out that they are ready to make a move. I have also been able use content strategies to help clients do the same with new distributors. I suppose this would be a B2B2B relationship.

    The bottom line is that content can be a very effective tool. Too often people rush to attach an ROI on it to 'justify the investment'. I believe this is a bigger mistake than having NO content at all.

    This is interesting @E.G. Sebastian, but you're definitely selling here. I believe in "selling," too, but what you didn't do with this article (following your advice now) is offer that value-added component. Your information is pretty standard (good, but known). What are you giving us that makes this article particularly valuable? I'm constantly promoting my book (I have to for contractual reasons), but I also make sure my posts GIVE something besides advice, whether it's a new insight or even a few laughs. I'm kinda like the door-to-door salesman who does a full juggling act on the lawn first. If I have followersโ€”and I doโ€”I'd say I have them more for my blog/posts than my book. At least they're getting to know me, my thinking and my willingness to give as well as receive.

    "The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them." ~ Mark Twain. In the dark ages, peasants were not allowed the privilege of learning to read. In early America, it was a crime to teach a slave to read, and a crime for a slave to have the ability to read. In religious history, the followers were made dependent on the priests, pharisees and sadducees to know what the scrolls said, because they could not read. Ignorance has historically been the 'go-to' method of controlling the masses. Today we are graduating the functionally illiterate from high school. Cursive writing is on its way out of elementary education. Videos are taking the place of books. It is a dangerous thing to be unable to read. Reading is the foundation of critical thinking. If you cannot read, you cannot solve the story problem or equation in mathematics, you don't understand the fundamentals of science. You only know the handle of a broom or shovel.

    #33 Yes, Kevin, that is the point. I've only known one self-ascribed "guru" who I felt used the title with some measure of legitimacy. Some years ago, a very experienced fiberglass production guy dubbed himself "The Fiberglass Guru" and launched a website on which he not only promoted himself and the industrial services he provided, but also -- and this is most important -- answered all manner of questions from readers concerning reinforced plastic laminates. The self-ascribed title was not as presumptuous as such often are because he stood ready to offer a pile of free advice and to back his opinions up with detailed explanations and instructions, also for free. It was also at a time when the use of the title could be seen as a tongue-in-cheek marketing affectation. Cheers!

    #31 I agree Phil. There's a world of difference when the words 'self-proclaimed' is put in front of 'expert' or 'guru'.

    I'm more than a little suspect when someone claims to be an expert in anything. Those who have achieved mastery of a skill, or knowledge don't need to brag... it is evident just by watching their actions, or listening to them speak.
    Renรฉe  ๐Ÿ Cormier
    20/04/2017 #32 Renรฉe ๐Ÿ Cormier
    #31 Yes. That is just one more reason why knowledge is power. It really does make me sad to see people put so much faith in the expertise of others. Even well educated and knowledgeable people with good intentions are fallible. It is up to us to not be sheep and figure out the difference between the wolves and the dogs.

    @Renรฉe ๐Ÿ Cormier, this is a great piece, chock full of street smarts. I'd like to add one example to your list of tools for communications manipulators: self-ascribed "expert" or "guru" status. In the hands of such manipulators, these labels are intended to signal to the intellectually lazy that the manipulator's message should be accepted at face value, without question because the expert or guru knows so much more than the reader. The most common warning flag is that, when you question one of these people, the response is never a reasoned or detailed explanation, but always an admonishment simply to trust him or her, for he or she knows the truth. Cheers!

    @Renรฉe ๐Ÿ Cormier IMHO this is your best piece yet on beBee. You capture many salient points and I would only add that given our natural attention span is now less than that of a goldfish the climate is ripe for the exploitation of the intellectually lazy.

    I love living in the Google age. This site not only gave me several options (including the right answer) but will let me search for words by length, by the letter they start or end with, or even letters they contain.

    For all you Scrabble players out there, this should solve some arguments, or allow for creative cheating.

    Sooo, what word did y'all come up with? Castanets? Castrate? Casual?

    #4 To be fair, my wife wasn't playing Scrabble, but a word game on her phone. She has trouble sleeping, I am usually asleep by the time my head hits the pillow. She was stuck on a level and was bugging me to help. So I did. She was happy and I got to go to sleep.

    A dictionary with Scrabble? That's a whole different story...

    #4 That is one of the rules in our house too. You can't touch the dictionary unless you challenge and if you challenge and lose, you lose the equivalent amount of points to the challenged word from your score. We're pretty brutal.

    Wow, what's this s%$t about using dictionaries to find words? I always thought that in Scrabble one uses a dictionary only to adjudicate whether a proposed word is legal?

    #2 Scrabble can get pretty intense. I remember one game when my kids were teenagers, when one got angry and stormed off muttering "Well F*** YOU!"... (He's grown now and much better)... You could cut the air with a knife until I said. "Actually, that's a pretty good score. F is worth 4..."

    We still laugh about that.

    Oh, this would fuel a few in my house as well. We have very strict rules about which dictionary is to be used right down to the version! Scrabble is no game here!
