Attention Albany area social media professionals:
If you haven’t registered yet to hear Peter Shankman speak at Union College on Tuesday night, it’s not too late! Let me share with you an excerpt from the press release about the event:
The Tech Valley Chapter of the Social Media Club (SMCTV) is hosting their inaugural event at Union College, presenting world renowned Public Relations and Social Media Guru Peter Shankman. Shankman, who founded Help a Reporter Out (HARO) and The Geek Factory Inc., will touch on all facets of social media, marketing, and “non-traditional ways of thinking”, focusing on social networking, viral marketing, and all the fun ways to use them-or not to use them. An entrepreneur, author, speaker, and worldwide connector, Shankman is recognized worldwide for radical new ways of thinking about Social Media, PR, marketing, advertising, creativity, and customer service.
“Social Media Club Tech Valley is about sharing social media knowledge and bringing together professionals, publishers, journalists, teachers, students, and anyone who creates or consumes media”, said Social Media Club Tech Valley President Dave Ward. “We can’t think of a more fitting and exciting inaugural event then hosting Peter Shankman, one of today’s hottest names in PR and social media, at one of Tech Valley’s premier colleges.”
“Social media is everywhere – and more importantly, it’s not social media – it’s simply another facet of marketing – but one we need to understand to grow our businesses to the next level. I’m looking forward to sharing some tips on how to do this with Tech Valley,” said Peter Shankman.
