HOW TO USE SOCIAL MEDIA FOR PERSONAL AND CORPORATE BRANDING

DATE: MONDAY, MARCH 15, 2010 — TIME: 12:00 p.m. EST

JOIN US FOR A LIVE (FREE) GLOBAL JAM SESSION

What social media industry groups are your colleagues and competitors a part of?

Are you aware of the Meetup groups, conferences and industry events taking place in your field?When you speak at an industry event, are you remembering to update your LinkedIn, Twitter & Facebook statuses? Are you sharing this information with others?

Do you recognize the need to establish a “personal brand” for your business in the virtual world of social media, yet have no idea how to do so?

Branding is no longer only for business owners and corporations. Due to the rise of social media and the new world of PR, personal and corporate branding have become increasingly accessible and critical for individuals and companies looking to promote their brand. Branding tools allow you to inherently “celebritize” yourself and get your name out without involving the high cost of traditional public relations. They are also critical for securing upcoming speaking engagements and establishing yourself as a thought leader and opinion leader in your industry.

Personal branding and social media marketing involve a lifestyle change, as they put you in the habit of sharing information publicly as opposed to privately, which may seem overwhelming for many at first. Digital press kits have typically been created for companies, but with the advent of personal branding, you can create your own “press kits” to showcase your strengths and industry expertise. Join us for a Jam Session with Kristen Ruby, a personal branding expert, on how to ease your transition into a social way of life and establish yourself as an opinion leader in your field.

This is going to be an interactive session, with Kristen answering your questions.
