It's been a few months since I've been able to attend the Social Media Club of Evansville's meeting. But I must say, it's worth the time, especially business owners who are looking to create a local online presence. Monday, August 15th from 6 - 8 PM at Ri Ra Irish Pub, will be the next meeting. I've yet to RSVP, but I shall try to attend.
As a note, everyone is just as friendly, outgoing, and welcoming as their online persona. Furthermore, presentations are professionally orchestrated and geared toward teaching and open discussion. Even if you struggle finding Facebook.com, you'll feel at home learning about how important social media has become to your business and personal reputation.
According to the SMC newsletter, Mondays meeting will focus on YouTube and Real Simple Video and what it means to your marketing efforts. I know how my ventures into video production have turned out, so I'm considering a double dose of Rocky Walls, who will also be presenting at U of E earlier in the day. If you don't know who Rocky Walls is, he's the go to guy at Star Media Productions, a business that focuses on online content creation and social media marketing.
For all the gritty details sign up at the official Social Media Club of Evansville Website. The meeting at Ri Ra Irish Pub is free, but the presentation by Rocky Walls at U of E will cost a $20 registration fee.
