Help us create season 10 of the Boagworld Show

In season 10 of the Boagworld Show we are embracing the top 10 list. Yeah, yeah I know. You hate list posts. But these lists are going to be written by you.

To celebrate the tenth season of the Boagworld Show (which launches on the 25th July) we are featuring a different top ten list on every show. From the top ten usability tools to the top ten coding tricks, it will have something for everybody.

I know what you are thinking. Lists have a bad reputation. They are lazy writing and pander to the lowest common denominator. But, we are going to change that.

That is because we want you to write our top ten lists. If you have an idea for a top ten list or want to contribute to somebody else’s list, use the comments below.

Make your suggestions in the comments

Before you start grumbling about the poor old list format, just remember you can’t get a more scannable and easy to process format than a list post. Isn’t that what good copy is all about ;-)

    Hello Mr. Boag! I’d love to see some digital PM-specific content. Maybe something about the qualities of a good project manager, the best project management tools, PM resources (books, blog, etc). I think you see where I’m going with this. It might be a nice cross-over with the Digital PM Summit.

    • http://boagworld.com/ Paul Boag

      Sounds like a great plan. Perhaps you could join us for a show?

      • Brett Harned

        I would love to!

    • global_sbarnes

      I was going to go top ten client management tips / digital PM theme but oh look, greedy Harned is here already.

      EDIT: Then again, I can’t even sign in here the right account so probably best to ignore me.

    • Rich

      I agree, the qualities of a good project manager, frequency of meetings, and how to project manage from remote locations would be useful.

    It’s not a top 10 list and it might have already been talked about previously but I think you should talk about web agencies allowing time for employee to learn new things, like allowing half a day per week to try new stuff. It doesn’t seem to be considered enough nowadays.
    This should help most of us convince our boss. Thinking about how many hours per week, per month or every n projects. Then agencies could consider having experimental project showcasing cutting edge technologies using this time building it (already exist for sure but not applied in most agencies). This concern should target the fundamentality of keeping our knowledge up to date on a day to day basis as well.

    Hi Paul and Marcus!

    I would LOVE to hear Top 10 Tips for Starting with Analytics.

    I know analytics is SO very important for a web designer to know—at least the basics. But as a freelancer who is already overwhelmed by the amount of stuff she has to keep current with (CSS rules, UX best practices, project management, freelance admin, content planning, social media, marketing and design), diving into the world of analytics as a beginner is daunting. I’d love for a couple of professionals to just tell me where to start, what I need to know, what I don’t need to know, and what I should to be tracking for my (small business) clients.

    Hi Paul

    A great book to read is Ice Cream Social about the founding and running of ben and jerry’s ice cream along with all the challenges they face(d). Also “screw it, lets do it” by richard branson – both truly inspiring.
