GroupTable featured on California News Station

By: David Brim January 31, 2010

Hi Everyone,

This past week GroupTable was featured on a news station in California.  GroupTable is a collaborative software that improves group communication, planning and document management.  GroupTable now has thousands of users all around the world.   In addition to being a founder I was also the CEO of GroupTable for over a year until I took a less day to day role to focus on Brand Advance.  The news segment was well done for the most part and worth sharing.  Enjoy!

Cheers,

David

    Very cool!

    A bit drawn out, but overall delivery was great.

    Quick question though: how do you intend to keep the enduser engaged?

    Congrats on the news feature. You must feel quite proud to see something you helped create get that kind of exposure. I know I would be calling up all my friends and family if anything I worked on made it on the news. I’m GroupTable is very useful software that has significantly helped all of its users.

    oops…meant to say ‘I’m sure GroupTable is very useful software that has significantly helped all of its users.’ My mind must have been getting ahead of itself.

    I heard one of their songs on my way to work today. Really made my commute a lot more fun. 🙂

    thanks David

    You’re right about the inane breaking in of so called news. In my area, the only time they break in here (st. louis) is when a kid has been kidnapped to let everyone be on the look-out.

    This stuff happens in the general public all the time, the only reason it made the news is because its a police officer. (The whole higher standard thing they preach in the police academy).

    Group Table helps group project teams, study groups and student organizations improve document management.

    The case of the officer whose 4th wife is missing and they now determined that his third wife’s death was not accidental, there are killers? Don’t paint the whole house with a dirty brush. Stick the dirtbag in jail and try to ensure the screening process in correct.

    So what kind of effect did the news feature have on business? Did you notice a big peak in traffic and sales from California?

    David do you know how this tv station found out about GroupTable? I’ve been trying to get more into press releases and creating media buzz, but it can be quite challenging to get the media’s attention.

    I have a small biz that I am starting up, and would like to get featured in magazines to spread the word. How does a company get featured?

  • diabetes supply


    I have read on other questions that its because you are a youtube partner, but i am not sure if i am one. Can anyone tell me why?

    @laptop Briefcases….Sorry for the delayed response. The news station that picked it up got wind of it because students in their location (even the anchor herself) was using it. The feature really was a surprise though. They didn’t really consult us on putting it together…they took the initiative.

    We did see a slight increase in traffic of a few hundred people. As far as sales go…the GroupTable site is free for students. We sell co-branded or private labeled versions to businesses or organization for sales.

    @bubba Moe…thanks for helping to spread the word!

    @diabetes supply- reach out to people in the media and show them a compelling value or story that they would be eager to share with their audience or write about. Also leverage other media plugs that you’ve received. I would also recommend writing press releases and submitting them yourself to free or paid PR sites to gain exposure

    @All….thanks for commenting guys, sorry for the delayed response on my end!

    @David: that’s great that it got picked up on its own. You know you have a winning product when people are willing to go out of their way to help promote it on their own. Now you just have more ways of getting people to start using it so that more people get the word out.

    Yes, but if the station at which you boarded either has a ticket machine or a ticket office which is open at the train departure time, you will have to pay an additional charge to the conductor.

    Getting back to topic, this doomsday scenario makes for entertaining reading and even a good Bollywood film, but is very unrealistic. Nukes are not grenades to be stolen in some raid and then used the next day.
