Something we have wanted to implement for a while is a more direct connection with our members. We've wanted to establish a way to share tips and tricks about Ride With GPS, share and discuss upcoming features, and get more direct feedback.
This last week we gave this a shot by hosting a Google Plus Hangout. With this service, we are able to broadcast our screens and voices to an unlimited number of people who can watch live via Youtube. Also, up to 10 people can join the Hangout directly using their webcam/microphone. We think that the test run was a huge success, and we have decided to schedule out our first series of Hangouts as a result. Here are the proposed topics and times:
August Hangout Series:
- 8/1/12 5:30pm Pacific Time: Route Creation Tips and Tricks
- 8/8/12 5:30pm Pacific Time: Garmin 800 Tips and Tricks
- 8/15/12 5:30pm Pacific Time: Route Creation Tips and Tricks
- 8/22/12 5:30pm Pacific Time: Groups, Events, and Segments
Sign Up Here for the Hangout of your choice.
Zack and Travis will be the hosts for the first series. The way the hangouts will work is that the first 8 members to join the hangout when it starts will be able to interact with us through their webcam and mic. The rest of the people who join will be able to watch the Hangout live on Youtube and interact through the Hangout's chat feature. If you don't use Google Plus that's okay because you can watch live through Youtube!
We are really excited about this series and want to expand in the future, so please let us know if you have a topic you'd like for us to cover or a time frame that would work better for you. We're looking forward to hanging out with you, so don't wait to signup!
