National Social Media Day
38:31 · 2018
I hope you guys are having a great week rocking and rolling along here. I know we’ve been extremely busy here since I got back from the cruise and finally feeling a little bit normal. My sleeping habits are back to normal and we’re getting caught up in all the work and stuff like that. I wanted to talk a little bit more here on the podcast about something that’s coming up. June 30th is National Social Media Day.
Why am I talking about that when this is a note podcast? It’s important because of the fact that everything is in marketing these days. Everything is all based on marketing, whether you like it or not. It is what it is. If you’re going to be successful at something, you have to realize it all starts with marketing. You could have the greatest product you, you could have the greatest idea, but if you don’t know how to market or how to use marketing to move that product or get the word out in whatever your product or service or event or whatever it is, you’re failing. We’re excited to be a part of this. It’s been around for a while. There have been cities that have been celebrating Social Media Day for years.
I started in Seattle a few years back. Our good friend, Kristie Whites, knows better about the history of that. Kristie Whites went to the city of Austin and was able to get the mayor to declare June 30th as National Social Media Day. We were excited to be a part of that inaugural event as one of the speakers, as also one of the sponsors for the event. It was a great live stream event from the offices of digital marketer here in Austin. It was about 80,000 views on the live stream. We’ve got some great feedback from people, some great people opting into things and starting to follow us along. I got a few new students because of that.
