February 2013 event summary: SMC Chicago Presents Social Media for Lead Generation

So you weren’t able to make it to SMC Chicago’s February event? Not to worry! You can still learn a few things from those that did go.

Wednesday’s event consisted of three panelists: Andrew Barber, Brad Farris, and Brad Wilson. About 60 people came out to Howl at the Moon to learn about how bloggers and authors use social media to find leads and grow their businesses.

How Social media offers potential for educators and institutions

Social media tools are changing the education landscape. These tools tend to fall into two broad categories: those primarily intended for social networking, such as Facebook or Twitter, and those that are designed for sharing user-generated content such as blogs, YouTube, or Flickr. It is the mixture of informality and ease of updating that makes social media approaches so appealing, whether mainstream tools are used, or whether niche or local social media tools are installed or developed.

Book Review: Google+ For Business

Google+ for Business by Chris Brogan, gives a comprehensive overview of how businesses can use Google+. Initially, the case is made why Google+ will be the next big thing. While I won’t argue that point, I will say the more important is what the future may look like. Taking into account the possible integration of Places, Docs, Calendar, Checkout, Android, Analytics and YouTube, coupled with Search, you can see why he makes the case for Google+ to be the next big thing.

Beyond what the future holds, Brogan provides not only a look at how he uses Google+, but also provides examples of how a several others are using it and how various business types would be able to use Google+.
