I was recently asked to be part of a panel discussing social media to a group of business owners at a South Missouri Business Expo, but found out later that I had a scheduling conflict so I had to decline. I was really looking forward to this engagement, as was my wife who says I never take her anywhere! In addition to being a panelist for an open Q&A session, I was also asked to do a breakout session of my choosing regarding social media.
The topic of my breakout session was going to be Brand Promotion and Reputation Management using Social Media. I figured for the sake of archiving my thoughts and providing my readers with some original content that I would share my thoughts and presentation here… I realize that this presentation casts a pretty large, or broad net, but it was my intention to give more of an overview and drill down some key techniques for brand and reputation management as well as product promotion.
