Julien Smith and The Impact Equation

In 2010, Julien Smith and Chris Brogan co-authored Trust Agents, a New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-seller. In Trust Agents, they examined the interplay of trust, reputation and influence in social media. And Julien Smith came to Third Tuesday for a what was a top-rated session to meet us and talk about the book.

Now Julien and Chris are back with a new book, The Impact Equation, their follow-up to Trust Agents.

A lot has happened in two years. No longer is social media a shiny new thing for techies. Now, it's mainstream. We're all creating, sharing and connecting on it. But are we making being as effective as we'd like to be? Are we having the impact we want to have?

Julien and Chris believe that we can have the impact we want to have. And they've charted out a formula - the Impact Equation - to guide us in this.

"We're not writing about Twitter and Facebook and Google plus and Pinterest and Path, because who cares? Those things are temporary and they aren't the things that matter. The people are what matters," Julien and Chris write. The real focus of The Impact Equation is "about getting a larger audience to see and act upon your ideas and learning how to build a community around that experience to take it all to an even higher level."

The Impact Equation is something that everyone who participates in social networks or creates and shares content can use. And Julien Smith has tested what he writes about and personally demonstrated that we can have an impact on the world around us. I hope you'll consider joining us at Third Tuesday to meet and hear from Julien.

The Impact Equation could make a real difference in how you approach online community and publishing.

BONUS: Every attendee will receive a copy of The Impact Equation when you check in at the event. So, you not only can hear and meet Julien, you can get your copy of the book personally signed by the author.

    Good speaker - I thought the message was slightly convoluted though.

    Entertaining and thought provoking, but not revolutionary. Has a knack for highlighting important functional relationships that ought to be obvious, but most of us overlook nevertheless.

    Interesting although slightly disjointed presentation about making the most of digital life.

    A different presentation that was more motivational and philosophical than tactical or an overview of the book. Julien brings together some interesting concepts and observations that do apply in today's world of personal branding.

    Julien has solidified his style since he last spoke here three years ago. I especially liked chatting with him afterwards. If you haven't read The Flinch, get that too (free on Kindle). I thought he'd talk specifically about The Impact Equation. We'll have to read it instead :)

    Disappointing, glib insights with glossy slides.

    He had an engaging presentation style but I didn't feel he really told us much. The book is a lot more rewarding.

    Very neat Ed. Will try to find you tomorrow and chat about it further.

    Dinner is a MUST after a long 9 to 5 workday and a meetup after! Thought it would be nice to grab a bite with a few people before, especially for those not attending. If at least 5 people join than the first four people to sign up receive a $15 credit at Milestones for just $5...sounds yummy to me! Sign up here: http://bit.ly/T3PMLK
