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

Is Your Content Getting Outside of YOUR Musuem? Discovery Place Charlotte | Small Business On The Web | 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?

Ideas are Everywhere, Getting Them Implemented Is Rare.

Ideas are Everywhere, Getting Them Implemented Is Rare. | Small Business On The Web | Scoop.it
“Ideas are a dime a dozen. People who implement them are priceless.” What a great quote by Mary Kay Ash, and so true!
craig daniels's insight:

Think about the title of this post, Ideas Are Everywhere. If you talk to 100 people most will tell you they've had at least one good idea that could have either help people or made a lot of money. The sad thing is that maybe only one of them ever took the first step to implement that idea.


Implementing a new idea is a huge commitment that takes more than just courage to step it forward it takes belief in your vision of that idea. If you have an idea you need to believe in that idea if it has any chance of success, you won't take that first step if you don't believe.


Amy Rees Anderson has penned a short engaging post about how the people who implement ideas are priceless, check it out.
