There’s no doubt that this is the age of social media—LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, etc. Social media and social networking is used in all sorts of ways, by all sorts of different people, including recruiters, of course. And once again, we’re going to use it for one of our conventions. Last November, it was the regional conference in Columbus, and very soon it will be the 2011 National Convention.
The convention is occurring this week at The Westin Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Specifically, the dates of the event are Thursday through Saturday. Click here to view the preliminary agenda for the convention.
What does it mean that we’re going to use social media for the National Convention? Well, it means a number of things, both for those Preferred Member recruiters who will be in attendance, as well as those who won’t be (but would like to follow the action, so to speak). Below are some of the things that will be happening over the course of the next couple of days.
I’ll be blogging about the convention. However, these blog posts won’t be included in The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog, but in our separate Network Conventions Blog.
We’ll be posting digital photos from the convention on the Top Echelon Network Facebook fan page. You can access the Network’s fan page by clicking here.
I’ll be tweeting about the convention. If you have a Twitter account and would like to start following me, click here to do so.
However, social media’s involvement in the National Convention extends beyond us . . . it also includes those recruiters who will be in attendance. If you’re planning to attend the convention, we whole-heartedly encourage you to use social media to chronicle your experiences at the event. Tweet about it, post to Facebook about it, do both, do more, whatever you’d like to do.
If you want, take pictures and email them to marketing@TopEchelon.com, and we’ll post them to our Facebook fan page. Events like our National Convention are ALL about networking—traditional networking first and foremost, of course, but also social networking. It’s a great way to share information and ideas and also to follow what’s happening at an event like the National Convention, even if you’re not actually in attendance.
So stay turned later this week, and follow the 2011 National Convention through social media . . . and make plans to join us for the Fall Conference in Chicago later this year.
What? You’ve never seen a shameless plug before?
