Our new venue (a private room upstairs at Christies on Thames Street, Newport) is a huge hit. Even before we knew about $5 martinis!
What do these folks know about social media that you don't?
NIM is hosting a panel of Rhode Islanders who are crushing it with social media.
Kathie Manchester from the Rhode Island Blood Center "I believe social media offers a positive way to talk with our donors without being intrusive. Having been in the industry long enough to see many forms of communications come and go, I am passionate about all forms of social media as a way to build long-term relationships."
Dana Duellman & My Perfect Space Entrepreneur, consultant, Realtor "The key to having your business active in social media is to engage your fans: show them you love what you do, you are passionate about it, and rewarded everyday by your experiences. My goal with my business page - and the pages of the businesses I manage - is to put forth uplifting, pertinent information that really allows our clients to relate and benefit from our relationships.”
Moderator: Nick Brown, Community Manager at Astonish Results, a student of social media for nearly 10 years at a high-tech PR agency and at a digital marketing company focused on insurance agencies, Nick has taught social media and community-building in college classrooms and at trade show seminars. Nick brings a keen understanding of the tools, best practices, and skills necessary for successful social networking.
Focusing on Twitter & Facebook the panelists will share
- What exactly are they doing? Which platform is most effective for each?
- How do they do it? What tools are they using?
- And how you can adapt their insights to further your social media presence.
Why should I bother with social media?
- An ideal way to connect with customers.
- An opportunity to turn the clock back early Google days.
- Tons more & maybe why you shouldn't bother.
