Announcing Amplitude – A New Marketing Podcast for South Africans

Dave Duarte and I would like to ‘officially’ announce the launch of Amplitude – A New Marketing Podcast for South Africans (by South Africans).

This is a pretty exciting step as neither of us have played much in the podcasting space. Unfortunately setting up a decent podcast that you, the producer, retain 100% control of is an intimidating technical task. We hope that amplitude will do two things:

1. Inform and entertain you as we bounce around ideas, interview movers and shakers and comment on the world of New Marketing and social media.

2. Inspire you to get of your geeky ass and produce your own frikkin’ podcast.

So I need you to start by subscribing. Either add to iTunes or plug the feed (http://feeds.feedburner.com/Amplitude) in to your iPod software of choice. It’s our first time (giggle), so we’d love your feedback on the content, sound quality (eish), angle and more. What would you like to hear us talking about? What should we add, or take away?

Please send your suggestions, comments and cash donations (lol) to amplitudepodcast[at]gmail.com.

Last favour – we’ve got u a nice WordPress-y theme, but need someone to help us design:

1. An Amplitude logo
2. An image for the podcast in iTunes
3. Perhaps a header image for the site

Let us know if you’re keen. We hope you enjoy it. Read Dave’s post here…

What Clients Say...

I have had the distinct privilege of sharing a stage with Mike on many occasions.

What sets Mike apart is his ability to package content so perfectly that not only do you enjoy listening to him, but you remember what he said months later.

He is smart, funny, handsome, likes long walks on the beach…

I saw Mike speak at Multiple.

I’ve known Mike Stopforth for the past decade and on a dozen occasions or more he’s addressed various events my company hosts in the media and brand communications space. In a sea of mediocre speakers, Mike is one of a kind. His subject knowledge is encyclopaedic relevant and cutting edge, he adds huge value to the digital and social media debate.

I saw Mike speak at Future of Media conferences.

Mike is irritatingly good at public speaking. Irritating because he has an uncanny ability to read the audience and pitch the content and tone at exactly the right level. Irritating because he delivers profound insights in a common-sense manner, and because his wry sense of humour makes each presentation more like a chat with a mate than a lecture.

I saw Mike speak at IMC Conference, Johannesburg 2013.
