This past week we at Hecklers’ Hangout were lucky enough to host Mr. Ken Mueller (kmueller62) of Inkling Media. While the conversation at times, as is custom, got a bit crazy, we actually talked about a lot of interesting stuff. For example:
Ken talked about how as a marketer, he isn’t the guy that will just build Facebook pages or give you Twitter followers and then back off. That’s not really what marketing is.
He talked about how he started Inkling Media and how he realized it was starting to take off.
We around the “table” talked about the concept of slacktivism – is social media really good for cause marketing? Ken mentioned that he thinks Pinterest is a really huge opportunity for NPOs and Jure and Brian also mentioned the importance of video. We actually riffed on video for awhile, discussing some of the obstacles people put in the way of video production.
And then, of course, we talked about Gini a little, who apparently introduced Ken to almost everyone he knows. Gini’s blog is a good example of a place where community can flourish. It was also noted (on Ken’s part) that Gini might have a fat head
Overall, it was a lively conversation also incorporating a cameo appearance from Ken’s famous dog Shadow and Dawn’s now famous kitty, who was SO HUNGRY! If you missed all of this wildness, you can watch the video down below!
