01:52 Interview with April begins
02:28 What’s great about ProductCamp Toronto: facilitated discussions.
03:28 In her session, April shared stories of product management within IBM and Nortel and other organizations.
04:00 Steps to using social media in product marketing; start with monitoring and listening (from Google Alerts to Radian6).
05:30 Next step is putting your toe in the water with broadcasting (one-way communications).
05:51 Now you’re ready to interact and engage, have conversations.
06:15 April’s pet peeve: People on Twitter who don’t converse and who follow you before they’ve even said anything.
07:00 Who should blog about products? Product people or PR people? April’s view on this.
09:55 Strong, effective collaboration between PR and product people would be communication utopia (is that URL taken?).
11:15 Toronto has lots of events, but ProductCamp is the only place for product marketers to confer like this.
