mRELEVANCE CampaignsI bet you still think that a picture is worth a thousand words! Well, that is a bit of an understatement with today’s highly visual online sites. Images, unlike text, are processed by your long-term memory. And, if that isn’t enough, images are proven to increase audience engagement!  I hope you will join me as I present “The State of Social Media 2015: Getting the Picture” with Chad Davis, Senior Director, Online Services and Digital Media for NAHB at the International Builders’ Show (IBS) in Las Vegas.

We will present our session on Thursday, January 22, in the Tech Hub from 10 – 11 a.m.

Ever Wondered Why 7s are Lucky?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

7 presentations in vegasThere are seven cosmic stages, seven ancient and visible planets, seven Chakras in Indian culture, seven days in a week and seven colors in a rainbow. Pythagoreans called it the perfect number, the universe was created in seven days and in Chinese culture, the seventh day of the first moon of the lunar year celebrates the universal birthday of all human beings.

And if you’ll be in Vegas for the joint National Association of Home Builders International Builders Show (IBS) and National Kitchen and Bath Association’s Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), sevens can be lucky if you pull three in a row on a slot machine. Seven has been my lucky number since I was a little girl,  but seven is also a great number because it is the number of opportunities you will have to sit in on one of my programs at KBIS and IBS.

It will be a busy three days, but I am excited about the social media and marketing strategies, tips and ideas that my co-presenters and I will share in these presentations.

Carol MorganI recently had the chance to talk about my new book, Social Media 3.0, with my good friend Todd Schnick on his Intrepid Radio show. As usual, his show and interview style lived up to its name. He is truly fearless!

During the interview we discuss what readers can expect to find in the book’s third edition, including the fact that 40 percent of the content is new. From the social media veteran looking for new ways to use and expand their social media presence to the floundering beginner who just needs help getting started, there is definitely something for users of all skill levels in Social Media 3.0.

Hello and Happy New Year!

I’m happy to announce that I’ll be starting the year off by giving a seminar, “Facebook for Business: Build Fans and Grow Customers” at the Cartersville-Bartow County Chamber of Commerce. The seminar will be held this coming Friday, January 13 at 11:30 am in the Anheuser-Busch Community Room.

Facebook is such a vital tool for personal and professional life- I don’t know where we’d be without it. Did you know that Facebook has nearly 800 million active users? More than half of them log on daily. Think of the fantastic potential for networking and marketing!

Whether Facebook is still foreign to you or you’re just looking for some fresh ideas for your profile, there’s something for you at the seminar this Friday. Come join me in navigating Facebook’s newest changes and hear tips for branding yourself and your company.

The event is free to all members of the chamber, and lunch can be pre-ordered for only $8. The cost to attend $35 for non-members.

If you would like to attend, there is still space! You may register online by January 12.
