Gosh I love when somebody takes my ideas and runs with them (pun alert) to grow their business. I recently caught up with Rebekah (Bek) Keat of Team Sirius Tri Club to learn about how she uses online content and social media to reach beginner and weekend warrior triathletes who want to know basic information.

I'm a huge fan of Creative Commons, a nonprofit organization that makes it easy for people to both share their original work with the world and build upon the work of others.

Twelve years ago Matt Risinger started a custom home building firm specializing in architect driven and fine craftsmanship work. Soon after, he also started a YouTube channel about building science, craftsmanship, and best practices for building and remodeling. Matt now has more than 130,000 subscribers to his channel and his construction firm has grown from zero to $20 million in annual revenue in just over a decade. At a recent Tony Robbins Business Mastery event we sat down to discuss how Matt uses YouTube to grow his business.

Since that post, many people have asked if newsjacking works for other organizations such as business-to-business outfits, nonprofits, and consultants. Some people have been skeptical about the applicability outside of consumer brands.
