Engagious Podcast 02: Greg Weinstein, Audience Engagement Veteran

Greg Weinstein
When I learned one of Brian Izenson’s former college roommates is a media veteran with a resume that includes writing, directing, and producing, I knew this conversation was meant to be. Greg Weinstein’s career has spanned the media landscape having worked with major traditional, streaming, and OTT outlets such as A&E, MTV, Univision, YouTube, Hulu, and Netflix. It was fun digging into his background and Greg shared some great insights.

Here are some things you’ll learn from this conversation with Greg:

@ 5:05 – How to continually engage viewers/listeners/fans as mediums evolve. Radio> TV> online> streaming.

@ 11:30 –“Data doesn’t have to trump intuition.” How to blend data and intuition to best influence the creation and distribution of content.

@ 17:50 – Analyzing various audience behaviors and how that plays in to decision making.

@ 20:16 – Summary for content creators on how to use this information to create contagious engagement.

If you liked this episode, I also recommend that you check out my conversation with Rich Thau where we discuss using principles from social science and behavioral psychology to shape messaging and resonate with an audience.
