Nomination For Question Of The Week

Posted by telemoxie on 500 Points
I nominate, "Hire Content Manager Or Hire 3rd Party Agency?" as the best question of the week, and suggest that mevanko be awarded 1000 points for asking such a good question.

I tink that good questions lead to helpful discussions. We should encourage them.

What do you think?

    What makes for a good question?
  • Posted by telemoxie on Author
    Mike, in my opinion, a good question stimulates good, helpful discussion which we can all learn from. A good question, in my opinion, asks for advice rather than asking us to do work for the person. And, a good question is one in which the asker participate in the ongoing discussion.

    I believe those sorts of questions make this forum more valuable for each of us.

    But what do you guys think?

    It seems to me that "best question" depends on where the asker has an itch. The "best" for one person may not be best for another person. Who is to say that a process question is somehow better than a tactics question?

    Useful advice is the reward for a well asked question.

    Frankly I was embarrassed that consultants descended upon the questioner, not to answer the question but to solicit business. I thought commercials were discouraged here.

    I did not know that MarketingProfs would recommend a member consultant to another member in email. How does that work?

    Did I miss something?

    Apart from the points system within MarketingProfs has different values that I know longer care about, did the Questionee receive a solution before 3rd parties start celebrating the best question award.

    Am I in the right place here any longer?

    Hi Dubois, I did shamelessly offer my services but it was/is a real problem requiring a solution.

    Im going to post here soon soliciting skills in exchange for rewards.

    To me, what was great about that question was the clear write-up/description of their real-world issue.

    Hmmm ... if nothing else, the question presented a little more substance.

    Personally, I learned a lot from that particular discussion. To me, that was a very helpful discussion.

    But whatever the criteria, I think we want to encourage and enable good questions.

    Guys, MarketingProfs NEVER recommends a consultant by email. That was a false statement. If that behavior continues, I will suspend the poster from KHE.

    Hi Everyone,

    I am closing this question since there hasn't been much recent activity.

    Thanks for participating!
