I’m doing one of these things right now:
Marketing Without the Marketing is about respectful and ethical ways to build an online audience. Episodes 169 & 170 were about how small businesses can survive the coronavirus crisis. I publish a new episode about every other Monday; subscribe in Apple Podcasts and dozens of other podcast apps.
My band The Rockmores has been very active despite quarantine. We’ve been producing a series called The Social Distancing Sessions, releasing a new song nearly every Tuesday. We started recording our second album in January, though obviously everything’s on pause. See more at https://michaelboezi.com/music.
I serve as a board member and volunteer at a small organization called Boston For All. We are an activist group that runs a series of community events – 100% of all money raised goes straight to the nonprofit organizations we support. We raised $3,275 at our first virtual event a few weeks ago to help local restaurant workers who have suddenly lost their income.
I teach a course at Emerson College called Fundamentals of Content Strategy. It is a project-based grad-level course that I designed, based on the stuff that I do in practice with my own clients. I just submitted my final grades for the Spring 2020 term. With all the disruptions due to the coronavirus crisis, this term was certainly more challenging.
I’m a practitioner. I run my own business called Control Mouse Media, LLC, helping clients build their audience using content. I do a mix of writing, production, strategy, and training. Though a lot of my work happens behind the scenes, here are some projects of note:
- I produce the wildly successful podcast Everyday Sublime by Josh Summers
- I helped write and edit this cookbook, Vegan Chocolate Treats (affiliate link) – due in Oct
- I wrote all the Web copy for this site, including the detailed product pages: Bixahuman
- Due to my SEO efforts, this single post has been viewed over 150,000 times
Derek Sivers came up with this concept (a “now” page), and my page is included in his collection.
