Online Community Building at Social Media Masters Atlanta

Published on

These slides are from my "Online Community Building" presentation for the Social Media Masters Atlanta in Marietta, GA on August 26.

The question isn’t whether or not you have a community. Your community – the people who love and support what you do – is out there. The question is how you engage with them. In this workshop, we’ll talk about community management and engagement in spaces you control and spaces you don’t, from Facebook and Twitter to forums and blogs. This is the art of community building on the web, both the good and the bad, steeped in real world experience.
