SMB Bangor #38: Being a go-to source

Posted on September 23, 2014

People often have a person they trust when they need information about something – a place to eat, what to wear, or who to ask. The same is true online; using social media, you can become a topic expert who dozens, hundreds, or even more turn to when they’re looking to know more.

For our October breakfast, we’ll welcome local social media users (and past SMBBGR Award nominees) who have become the trusted source for information about a particular subject, whether it’s what they do for work or something completely different. We’ll talk about how they started to share what they know, what the experience has been like, and how other people who want to be a go-to source can do the same – for business, for fun, or both. It’s a great chance to see how being the first person in people’s minds can help you, whether it’s for emergency information, the latest arrivals at the local airport, or something of your own.

SMB Bangor #37: Heating up fundraising with social media

Posted on August 27, 2014

With so many causes accepting donations, finding a way to generate awareness – and contributions – can be tricky. How can your event or organization stand out from the crowd, especially with the help of social media?

For our September breakfast we’ll welcome three local panelists who have helped organize successful fundraisers  for a variety of causes. Join us for a conversation about how they approached their campaigns, what they’ve learned, and suggestions they have for others trying to raise money.

Learn how to bring the bacon home to your cause at this month’s Social Media Breakfast Bangor!
