As you recall, CoverItLive announced it would be charging for their program, effective July 1.
I wanted to give it a try for my last live chat (for at least a week) until I figure out a more organized idea of the following:
a) What kinds of topics draw the most traffic?
b) When is the best time to hold them?
c) Are they drawing enough traffic to even bother continuing on weekly basis? Maybe I should just conduct them as it relates to hot topics that come up?
We had a pretty engaged discussion about online marketing.
Anyways, my chat was no where near as cool as the ScribbleLive my coworkers did for the Stephen Stetler political corruption trial this week.
But, nonetheless, I already love this program. Sorry, CoverItLive.
It’s easy to use. You can link to stuff in your posts. Pull in all types of social media like a live version of Storify.
You can even webcam it up. And we all know how much I love being on camera.
Also, when people submit comments, ScribbleLive makes this cool clicking noise.
(Whatever. I’m easily entertained.)
There’s just so many options that allow for realtime (and creative!) coverage of live events.
Now, I just need to find one of those on the oh-so-exciting business beat.
Or, if all else fails, I can stir up some sort of random conversation myself.
Can’t wait to integrate this into my ideaLab adventures!
