SXSW Votes Matter…

SXSW2016

My colleague, JoDee Brownsworth Taylor and I have made it to the round of voting to be panelists for SXSW Interactive next year. Our topic will be a gold mine of information for bloggers who wish to have a good online presence and work with brands.

Social Media Netiquette and Working with Brands

Two bloggers who manage social media for major brands offer pointers for bloggers and social media users who aspire to work with brands. Director of Social Media for a fortune 50 company and social media consultant for a leading interior design manufacturer and other brands will share with bloggers strategies for a solid online presence and how to get noticed by the brands they want to work with. What is the best way to approach a brand? What can they really see about you and your stats? What are brands looking for in a blogger and how can you best position yourself to work with them? 

The speaker selection process is cut throat and requires votes at this stage. We would really appreciate your vote, comments, shares, support.  Thank you so much. xxc

Social Media- Paragons of Netiquette

In the wolf hierarchy, there exists a ranking system. Dominance in a pack has more to do with confidence and strength of character than size or physical strength. Which means that contrary to popular belief, the Alpha dogs are not the snarling, ferocious ones, but the calm and wise ones. They know their place and don’t feel the need to prove anything to the pack. It’s the lower ranking members who are insecure and have something to prove to their peers. Spoiler alert: if you watch the wolf pack behavior videos, you will note that the ones with the most self-serving or bully behaviors don’t meet a good end. They usually get taken down by the rest of the pack to restore balance to the group. Natural selection.

This same mentality transfers to the social media world. Social media platforms are stages for all kinds of behavior- the good, the bad and the ugly. I’m sure you have seen the nasty behavior, and the disappointing encouragement of it as well, but we will not dwell on those types today.
