How content creates content – virtual edition

Last year I published How content creates content blog post. It’s one of my favorite blog posts. It shows how one piece of content can produce more content. Since everyone shifted to running online events/meetups I wanted to update this blog post and also offer new content ideas for the virtual world. I know it’s not always easy to come with content ideas. This blog post should help you develop more content. I also recommend you read How to scale Developer Relations with online meetups.

We have been running (almost) daily online meetups on the IBM Developer Crowdcast channel. You have been working on an article or tutorial how to solve a problem with a technology from you company. You want to share it with your community, maybe other developers will find this solution useful. You can start with publishing a step-by-step tutorial. That’s one piece of content.

Next you can host an online meetup where you will show the steps building a solution. Now you have:

It’s a good idea to record the online meetup. We use Crowdcast where each event is automatically recorded. You can upload the recording to YouTube and now you have:

Some advice on running online meetups

IBM Developer SF hosted over 100 online meetups in the past two years and I also shared how to scale Developer Relations with online meetups. In this blog post I want to share what works for us, how we run the online meetups, what we do before, during and after the event. Pick what you believe will work for you.

Online meetup on Crowdcast

Before the online meetup

This is what we do or try to do before an online meetup.

  • Publish the online meetup 3-4 weeks before the event (like a regular in-person meetup)
  • Promote the event via regular channels such as Twitter, LinkedIn (like a regular in-person event)
    • If hosting an event with a partner, ask them to promote the online meetup to their community
  • Publish on Meetup, Eventbrite or any other platform you usually publish events on
    • A note about Meetup: they seem not to like when people post to many online events but I don’t know their official policy on that
  • Make it clear where to register for the online event
  • If the event is with a remote employee or external partner, schedule 15 minutes dry-run a few days before to make sure the software you are using works for them and they can share their screen
