Innovation Bloggers Virtual Forum on April 26th—an Example of How to Create an Online Event to Position Yourself as an Expert, Drive Web Traffic and Generate a PR Buzz


Here’s another example of how to partner with colleagues who have complementary areas of expertise and will help drive a new audience to your business or nonprofit web site—create an exciting online event, forum or webinar! Then, get other notable and popular bloggers to announce it, and send out press releases to print, online, social and broadcast media, podcast and videocast it, and watch your Web traffic soar!

I wrote about that before when a group of online marketing and PR colleagues got together and participated in Web Content Awareness Day, created by my copywriter colleague, Dina Giolitto—each of us contributed articles for the event site in our own areas of expertise. Here’s how one of my Innovation colleagues, Jeff De Cagna, got a group of colleagues together to create an Innovation Bloggers Forum:

“Innovation is now recognized as the single most important ingredient in any modern economy.”
–The Economist

Innovation continues to be a top priority for leaders in all sectors of the global economy, yet actually making innovation happen remains a profound challenge for many organizations. What’s more, the new dynamics of a rapidly-changing, Web-enabled global marketplace are shifting how we think about innovation itself.

If you would like to better understand the current state of innovation thinking and practice, as well as the emerging trends that will shape the future of innovation, join some of the Web’s top innovation bloggers for the first-ever Innovation Bloggers Virtual Forum on April 26, 2007.

Here is the Forum line-up as of right now, and my colleague, Jeff De Cagna, of Principled Innovation, will be adding more bloggers.
