The IMPACT Show was a coast-to-coast affair!

In this, the second episode of our new podcast, The IMPACT Show with Bob & Nick, Bob joined us from the Small Giants Summit in Detroit (Not Dallas -- Oops), while Nick once again invited us into his home in Boston. Together, they discussed Facebook’s crackdown on fake Live videos, the rise of content topic clusters, and of course, defining your vision for growth.

Just in case you missed us live (or if you want to relive the magic), you’ll find the episode’s show notes below as well as the recording.

Enjoy and make sure to share with your peers!

Facebook Cracking Down on Fake Live Videos

  • Brands like Buzzfeed were putting up videos that weren’t quality broadcasts (i.e. cinemagraphs, countdowns)
  • In an effort to preserve quality, Facebook will now penalize pages that post “fake” live videos like these.
  • “Urgency, Unpredictability, and On-screen Action” are what draw people to live video.

Main Topic: “Defining Your Vision for Growth”

  • A vision for growth is critical for three reasons. It:
  1. Defines Success: Everyone knows what they’re working towards
  2. Aligns Everyone: Everyone is working towards the same end-result
  3. Inspires
  • Visions doesn’t have to be grand or aspirational, it just needs to be clear and direct about what you want to achieve. If you put it in your vision, it will happen.
