In addition to the slideshare presentation, you can find a podcast over at Lisa Peyton’s Thoroughly Modern Marketing (TMMPDX).
Once again PDX does not disappoint! Thank you to all who were able to come out and spend your time with us at the second Social Media Club PDX event. It was a wonderful event, packed to the brim (I lost count) with people from all different industries looking to learn or share how social media can help businesses. And how there is a business need to fill positions to build a brand presence online and engage/listen to their consumers.
A big thank you to Intel’s diva of social media, Kelly Feller, for presenting. We will be putting up a link to her slideshow once she removes some of the legaleze from the deck. Follow us on twitter @socialmediapdx for updates.
Webtrends was amazingly gracious to us. The soda and free books, as well as the space were all compliments of Webtrends. Be sure to read on their blog about what they are working on for social media analytics. The beers, lest we forget, were compliments of Widmer Brothers.
Are there really jobs in social media and if so, how do I get one? With all the self-proclaimed social media pundits, experts & gurus out there, it’s easy to wonder if the only jobs in social media are for consultants or agencies trying to help big corporations “get it.” Well Kelly is living proof that some big companies do “get it” and are willing to put their money where their online mouths are by hiring specialists with expertise at “being social online.”
Join Kelly Feller for the second official Social Media Club Portland meeting where she’ll summarize various corporate social media jobs (hers included) & what they actually entail, explore ways to stand out in this increasingly crowded space, and give some hints to agencies & consultants who are helping companies make sense of the growing social media marketing trend.
