Re-visiting The First Digital Marketing Therapy Session
Ok, so this post is late but now that things are moving quickly at CIMA, why not discuss it?!
On February 24, 2013, Brian and Tom hosted a Digital Marketing Therapy (DMT) session at PodCamp Toronto. Around 30 people attended the event.
As DMT sessions go, this was a success. We went around the room, one by one asking people if they had questions about online marketing, business issues, and so on. While a few people shied away from voicing any issues, others gladly shared their circumstances and asked for advice for everyone else.
We discussed different websites, freelance work, being a writer and journalist in the era of bloggers, working from home and in remote areas, among other topics.
Each DMT will have a completely different list of topics as it depends on the questions asked and those in attendance who are able to answer them.
The Session’s Description
The Canadian Internet Marketing Association (CIMA) presents Digital Marketing Therapy. Actually, it’s not a presentation at all. It’s an open air question and answer period hosted by Brian and Tom. (But just because Brian is the president of CIMA, don’t assume he has the answer to every single question.) We want YOU to share your experience with every one else.
This session is ideal for business people and Internet marketing professionals. During the Digital Marketing Therapy session, everyone comes together to help and support one another. If you’ve had problems or issues in your business, chances are, others in the session have too. Bounce ideas off others who have gone through it already and perhaps find solutions.
Possible Topics That You Can Bring Up
- Issues with running a social media marketing campaign
- Client payment woes
- Tried paid search, didn’t work out. Now what?
- Worked with a vendor who left you feeling used
In true unconference style, this session is about the attendees, for the attendees.
Come early to be sure there’s time to cover your specific issue.
Share your challenges, be heard, and learn what you can do differently next time.
