Greetings, discerning readers!
I’m accustomed to receiving feedback from many of you. But it’s been very interesting hearing your voices in another forum — the MarketingProfs Know-How Exchange.
The Exchange hung up its shingle January 13, and it’s been a busy place these past two weeks. About 215 of you have participated in the Exchange—either by posing a question you need help with or answering a query. Many more are lurking in the dim-lit corners. And Exchange moderator Val Frazee firstname.lastname@example.org is having a blast moderating the Q&A.
Two weeks into it, Val says, the Know-How Exchange has closed 76 questions (meaning, the author of a question reviewed the responses and found one or more that helped him or her), and on average it’s taken about two days for questions to close. (Good news for those of you with a project deadline.) Another 35 questions (give or take) are still open and waiting for answers.
Val’s not the only one who’s been busy. Our lead expert right now, John Stasick, is kicking butt. He’s accumulated 1235 points (as of yesterday). Read his bio here. Go, John!
I’m looking forward to seeing more activity as the fledgling Exchange grows and matures. I’m certain that what we’re seeing now is only an inking of what’s to come.
But don’t take just my word for it. In his blog, marketer Cameron Moll reviews the Know-How Exchange, calling it a “smarter forum” that picks up where others leave off.
“Is it possible to make a smarter forum?” Moll writes, “A forum model that could transform the way all forums in the future are established, to be exact? The folks over at MarketingProfs think so. And I think they’re on to something. Something smarter.”
(Read his full review here). And BTW, I’ve never met the guy, but I do think—despite his self-effacement—that Moll is brilliantly intuitive. Don’t you?)
So check out the Exchange, and let me know what you think.
Until next time,
