Is Your Content Getting Outside of YOUR Musuem? Discovery Place Charlotte

Is Your Content Getting Outside of YOUR Musuem? Discovery Place Charlotte | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it
Discovery Place, Charlotte’s Science Museum, is a family-friendly attraction with fun educational events, shows, IMAX, 3D films and live animals.


Marty Note
In Charlotte for the Search Exchange Conference and saw an interesting idea at lunch. The Charlotte Discovery Museum puts exhibits out on the sidewalk.

What a concept. Everyday at lunch thousands stream by the museum. Instead of staying locked up in their box they bring cool exhibits out to the sidewalk.

The relevant question is what are you doing  to move your online content and community metaphorically out to the sidewalk? Here are my favorite ways to go to the people:

* Conferences and events.
* Meetups and classes.
* Find the _______ to win __________ (these modern treasure hunts have exploded on social / mobile web).
* Free Consulting Sundays (promise to bring these back soon).
* Free Lunch Fridays (have lunch on a Hangout & invite anyone interested in your topic. Be sure to schedule cool topics.
* Meet ___________ at _____________ If you can get Seth Godin to come hangout with you do so. If not think who you can hangout with & invite others.
* Startup Weekends & Hackathons.
* Online "telethons" (stolen from my friend Gregory Ng).

* Ride a bicycle across America (NOT recommended lol).
* Speak at conferences like Phil is at SearchEx and I am at FedEx Ecom Strategies Conference in Raleigh tomorrow.

What about you? How to you get your act out and on the road. What do you like to do to add a sense of touch and reality to your virtual identity?

The Giant Melon That ATE Internet Marketing: News&Observer ScentTrail Interview

The Giant Melon That ATE Internet Marketing: News&Observer ScentTrail Interview | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it
Rather than being intimidated by the ever-growing online world, small-business owners should embrace it and use it as a means to further communicate their message, said Martin Smith, who directs the marketing division Atlantic Business...
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Friends have been Tweeting me all morning to ask if the giant head featured in the Raleigh News and Observer's Ask The Experts column was me. I'm afraid so :). 

I added a comment to Laura Finaldi's elegant summary of our long and winding interview about Internet marketing tips for Small to Medium Sized Businesses (#SMBs).

I wanted to let local Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill SMBs know that I host a free Internet marketing consulting session most Saturdays at Saladelia Cafe on University in Durham. SMBs feel overwhelmed by Internet marketing, can get suckered into bad ideas such as GroupOn and least I can do is listen and create community of helpful resources and ideas.
