Question of the Month: Focus Groups

01:43 Currently, I'm obsessed with focus groups. Why? Because every time I hear someone talking about growing their audience the absolute last thing they mention is their content. So I asked my audience if they had ever used a focus group and Max from Avaiant News talk and Sharon from God's Women both share how they had got some feedback and both feel they benefitted from it.

Recently I did some market research that had me way out of my comfort zone but the information I received was worth the discomfort.

Facebook Vs Mighty Networks

On a previous episode, the hosts of the Wealth Without Wall Street were interviewed and mentioned how they had grown their overall revenue by 300%. One of its key ingredients was a Mighty Network. When I looked into this tool, I found it to be the swiss army knife of building communities (and if you want it – revenue). With Facebook losing15 million in the last two years source and trust getting lower and lower why not move a separate mobile-friendly location where YOU are in control of your community.

Jessica Shambora is the Head of Brand and Growth at Mighty Networks and came to answer my questions:
