Ever wonder what Growth Currency means? My friend Luke Cannon asked so I thought maybe more people might be wondering.

Here's what it's about.


GROWTH INSIGHTS | Creating Valuable Content with Twitter Spaces

Have you been participating in Twitter Spaces? If you don't know what Twitter Spaces are, think Clubhouse for Twitter.

I've written before about building a "quality" audience, and Twitter Spaces will help you do just that. Spaces are a fantastic way to build connections with your audience, or to get in front of someone else's audience.

But even more—Twitter Spaces can provide you with stellar content.

Vineet Sinha and myself have been hosting Twitter Spaces on the topic of online course creation and tooling. We're tapping into the minds of course creators and online learning experts like Daren Smith, Alexandra Allen, Kevon Cheung, and Jeremy Enns, to name a few (and even more to come!).

But...

The "content problem" with Twitter Spaces is the fact they're live. And live content is challenging in a global market with time zones.

So what's the solution?

I first saw Michael Greenberg doing live recorded Spaces earlier this year while interviewing creators on Twitter Spaces. He was recording the audio and then turning them into a produced podcast.

This way, your audience gets the option of a live listening experience, and/or a recorded 🔴 Space to listen to (at a later date). Really smart.

So we are recording our Twitter Spaces, too. They might be turned into a short podcast series, or perhaps we'll share some valuable clips, or both. Either way, we will have the content to leverage and share however we feel is most valuable for our audience.

You can do the same!

(One tiny glitch: Twitter Spaces does not have a built-in recording option, so you have to be creative. I've used Chrome Audio Capture to record our Spaces and I just found out about Headliner.ai which records Twitter Spaces and Clubhouse rooms (more on this in this week's GC⚡ links).

So there are 2 solid reasons to start hosting and recording your Twitter Spaces: you can grow your audience AND 2x your content!

1) Grow your audience
2) 2x Content Creation (live & recorded)

So... what are you waiting for? I hope to see you scheduling and recording your conversations soon!

If you want any additional help or guidance, please reply to this email or DM me on Twitter — I'm happy to help guide you :)
