We warmly invite you to attend the first ever, Orange County Social Media Summit, Friday, May 18, 2012 at The Refinery at Saddleback Church. Join hundreds of O.C.’s nicest, most passionate business, non-profit, marketing and communications leaders, to refine our skills on the ever changing, social web.
Created by the social media community, for the social media community in Orange County, enjoy speakers and panelists who started at ground zero, and have found their voice—in different ways—through the “socialmediaphere.”
No one started off as a huge brand, with a large list of contacts.
Driven by their passion for people and new media tools, they’ve experienced business success, personal growth, increased web traffic, and scores of other benefits, from simply being present, and being themselves in social media.
Our commitment to you, is to provide a safe and authentic learning environment, where you can come, take notes, ask questions, and connect with people who care. Speakers will lay out their strategies for you, step-by-step. You’ll learn how to think bigger and outside of the box to create breakthrough results.
From blogging, to making videos, to posting tweets and Facebook updates, we’ll cover:
The top social networks, and benefits and tips about each
Shortcuts, lots and lots of shortcuts—we’ve worked hard to uncover these secrets, and we’re ready to share them with you
How to listen to your customers/potential clients, and repurpose their feedback in meaningful ways
How to create content that will bring you qualified leads
Easy, ready to use techniques you can employ as you explore, get engaged, and find your personal groove online—whether it’s for business, a favorite cause, or to create your own, solid brand.

They are the real deal; no snake oil salesmen—here.
Between them, they amass more than 225,040 Twitter followers, 7.6 million friends on Facebook, 627,000 views on YouTube, and more than 10,000 connections on LinkedIn.
They have each used their power and influence to support worthy causes, that benefit and serve others outside of themselves, including: the Children’s Hospital of Orange County, Compassion International, Gavin’s Groupies, Stand Up To Cancer, Cameron Siemers Foundation for Hope, American Red Cross, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Irvine Public Schools Foundation, HomeAid Orange County, Baldwin Park Dogs, and the Amanda Foundation, to name a few.
We look forward to serving you through this fun and informative, full-day event.
