how-online-geniuses-crowdsources-answers-to-your-burning-marketing-questions

Earlier this year, I joined Online Geniuses – a Slack community made up of thousands of marketing professionals with channel topics spanning everything from content marketing to PPC.

I’d heard of Online Geniuses through the grapevine of industry chatter, but there was never any advertising tactics compelling me to join this niche online community where marketers could probe a hive mind for immediate feedback in realtime.

scheduled AMAs with featured guests since there is some really valuable information exchanged.

What’s the unique value for marketers in joining a community like OG?

It’s one of the few places you can meet likeminded marketers and innovators around the globe to chat with, do business or get advice. In fact, I recently saw a message about two people co-founding a business after meeting for the first time on OG. So the instant network is also a huge plus.

Like I mentioned, a lot of people use the community to DM other marketers with questions. It’s nice having an immediate resource for something like that.

We also have bi-weekly AMAs that are free for anyone in the community to attend and engage with. It gives members a chance to speak directly with some of the top marketers in the world.

Any examples of past AMAs or insights that came from OG conversations? 

We’ve had some really well-known names in our AMAs, like Gary Vee, Neil Patel, Rand Fishkin, and Guy Kawaksi. But we also have a lot of conversations featuring in-house marketers at some of the top brands, like Redbull, NBC, Zapier, Netflix, Bumble, Visa, Petco, and TechCrunch.

What are your plans for the future of Online Geniuses? 

We just want to keep doing what we’re doing to provide marketing discussions and resources through our community-driven platform. The community connection is huge and has been really instrumental in bringing like minds together to solve problems or get questions answered.

Eventually, since there’s already a lot of vendor discussion, we hope to launch a marketplace where people can find the types of software and services they need through an Online Genius community focused on vendors only. The goal there is that vendors would have a channel purely focused on partnerships and technology recommendations.

If a marketer wants to join the community, how can they get started?

Anyone can join the community for free by visiting our sign-up page and completing the form.

All members are manually vetted to ensure we’re maintaining the highest quality of the community, but the wait time is usually no longer than two weeks. Once you’re in, members can join any of the Online Geniuses channels by browsing the list in the Slack side panel and selecting “Join Channel.”
