In October we held a conference specifically aimed at online retailers called “8 Ways to Sell More Stuff” (read a review here). The feedback was very positive and we hope to produce more events in this style in 2011.
In the meantime here is the first of some of the presentations that I recorded on the day. I didn’t manage to record them all (sorry Michael Kane!) and it may be a while before I have an opportunity to tidy the other few up but there should be plenty for you to mull over in this podcast below.
This is Andrew Draper, Co-founder of Manpacks.com sharing his experience of launching not only a new online business in the last year but a business with a unique business model.
The headline sponsor of “8 Ways to Sell More Stuff” was An Post and one way you could sell more stuff is by checking out their new site ILoveShopping.ie.
Further to yesterday’s post about business blogging in Ireland Damien Mulley and I recently participated in Enterprise Ireland eBusiness Unit — Podcast: Blogging for Business where we discuss many aspects of business blogging from basic terminology right up to examples of business blogs. You can listen right in the browser or subscribe to the complete series.
At the beginning of December the IIA Social Media Working Group invited interested parties to join them in person or remotely in order to workshop their draft guide to business blogging. A very interesting session ensued with plenty of input from those in the room which you can hear on this three part podcast.
You can also subscribe in iTunes to the IIA podcast and receive any future podcasts from us.
We also had input from others via Twitter which caused me no end of half-brained responses. You can actually hear me saying “Ye wha?” as I try to respond to a tweet and a real live person at the same time. Nice. If we ever do this kind of workshop again I have a different plan for the live tweeting.
Much thanks for Brendan Hughes for chairing this event, Krishna De for facilitating the session and editing the podcast and to all those who participated. Input is still welcomed on the draft guide so please feel free to add your comments.
I spent Friday morning listening to and uploading the podcasts of the plenary and question & answer sessions of the IIA Congress. I finally feel I know what you are all talking about! You can download them and subscribe to the podcast here: http://www.iia.ie/resources/podcast/
The podcasts were kindly and appropriately sponsored by the straight-talking online bank RaboDirect.
These are available to all. The accompanying presentations are available to members and delegates only.
