15 minutes

Jack in Media Contact asked me to do a workshop for the Media Contact Mash conference in May and asked me to figure out what I wanted to cover. He also wanted to try out something new and make me a “media sponsor”. New meedja/social meedja etc.

The idea being that I use my media channels (Blog, Twitter etc) to highlight the conference and my workshop and I get a return if anyone that follows the link above or here buys a ticket. Being honest, I like the idea but have always tried not to make any money from this blog apart from linking to my business site. I can’t bundle my share into a ticket sales reduction as then every media partner would be ignored if mine were cheaper so whatever is made from ticket sales kickbacks via those links, I’ll probably put it to non-Damien use. Maybe I’ll randomly post it to someone or something or do a KLF on it.

Anyways, I’d just written an article for the Cork Independent on things that can be done to websites/Facebook/Twitter that can improve so thought it might make an interesting talk. Going to cover 15 points, 15 minutes each. We’ll have a novelty clock perhaps. This is some of the blurb:

Perfect for those who want an overview of digital marketing. Perfect for those who only have fifteen minutes a week to work on digital marketing. Perfect for those with short attention spans. Perfect for those with short attention spans.

And the talk marks me not doing a public talk again. Until perhaps 2012 but maybe longer. We’ll see. It’ll be refreshing to go to a conference and not see Damien Mulley’s name somewhere. I’ll do a blog post on the takeaways from the workshop a bit afterwards too. This is the link that pays for my jelly bean addiction.

2500 people have subscribed to my website instead of coming back each day. You can subscribe to the site using a feedreader or email. I'm also on Twitter. My online marketing blog might also be worth a visit. Thanks for visiting - Damien.

  1. Every time you clap your hands… Someone I’ve been ranting about social media to for the last 3 years goes to a Mulley presentation and comes back telling me “We need a blog! We need to be on Facebook! We have to get tweeting!!”

    So you know, thanks for spreading the word. Xx

    Wow the clock makes me feel dizzy maybe some jelly babies would help.

    15 minutes a day hmm. I have nearly stopped using Twitter during the day as before I know it it is the whole shagging morning.
