Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Build an Online Platform: Move Past the Article to the Topic

« 100 Thoughts on Social Media | Main | Digital Interaction: Enough to Influence Runners to Switch? »


Great post Valeria…more than that, your earlier articles and the links included in this post provide an excellent overview of what it might look like to build and manage an online community “hub”. I’ve recently become the go-to guy for an established and successful print media company who desire to mirror their authority and influence to an online platform. This, to be accomplished in such a way as to shore up and not damage what’s been established in their more tangible and recognized product.

Long story short, you’ve written quite a bit about this process and it has helped on several occasions to confirm my thinking and aspirations. From where I sit this is very valuable to me! I just wanted to lend my voice today to say that the way you have explained and interwoven everything together provides some very clear and actionable insight for anyone who seeks to accomplish what you describe.

Your style has also helped me to remain mindful of the PR aspects involved with what I do…not having come from that world, I appreciate the beacon. So thanks Valeria, for the skill and experience you so freely give here on Conversation Agent!
