OK, gang, democracy has spoken! First book to make it into our new SBBC – Small Business Book Club… (drum roll)…
Content Rules, by Ann Handley & CC Chapman.
This was the easy part. Now, we have to figure out how and when we’ll do our first book review. I think we pretty much nailed down the need to have a thread for each book, right here on SME clubs (Small Business). What we haven’t figured out yet, is how and when we can do a live chat to meet (virtually) to kickstart the discussion. Options suggested so far:
- G+ Hangout
- Webinar style (MeetingBurner.com)
Right now, there are 10 of us on this thread. It’s likely that this number will increase somewhat, yet not everybody will be able to make it on the date and time that will be chosen. I therefore would recommend we start off with a G+ hangout, and see if the 10-person limitation is a barrier or not. (Must admit I also like the MeetingBurner option, even though we can’t see each other)
Speaking of timing, I would suggest doing this on Thursday PM, say 5pm Eastern time. Works well for folks in North America, is still accessible for Europeans (11pm) and will be morning time over coffee for Russell down under
The first suggested date would therefore be February 9th, 5pm EST. This allows for a little under 3 weeks to go and purchase the book for those (like me) who have not read it, or to refresh your memory for those who already have.
If you feel this is too close, and would prefer to delay by another week, we can make it to Feb 16th. I just think we need to close in on a date and format, so that we can move on and arrange agendas accordingly. It will we difficult to always have everybody on board, but let’s give it a try.
Is this good? Feedback, please.
