SXSW Votes Matter…


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
