We wanted to share some exciting results from our 2011 census involving Social Media Club New Orleans, where innovators from Louisiana meet for monthly events to share, engage and collaborate with the community on the issues of social media and technology. Our Facebook page has grown to 301 members and our Twitter feed, to 70 members. For more information, please visit our Facebook page or Twitter feed and join us for an upcoming event!
Welcome to Social Media Club New Orleans, where innovators from Louisiana will meet for monthly events to share, engage and collaborate with the community on the issues of social media and technology. Our chapter launched in 2009, and our leadership board includes Tiffany Starnes. For more information, please visit our website, Facebook page, where we currently have 240 members, and say hi.
In January, it was the Saints (Who Dat!). In February, Mardi Gras. March was SxSW and April brought Jazz Fest. Let's face it, there is no shortage of distractions in New Orleans. That's part of the reason we continue to attract that elusive "creative class."
New Orleans is rich with musicians who pioneered and remain the stalwarts of MySpace. We have a reputable advertising community that is facing shifting communications platforms. In a post-Katrina, oil spill environment, our grassroots campaigns can be bolstered by new fundraising methods. Restaurants are recognizing the power of Yelp and small businesses are adopting geo-targeted online efforts that maximize engagement and minimize budgets.
The goal of Social Media Club New Orleans is to foster collaboration, education and conversation to navigate the ever changing world of social media. Whether you want to raise money, sell a product or build an army of advocates, there’s probably an app for that.
Stayed tuned for lots of interesting programming and a passionate new leadership team. Join now (it’s free!) for updates on upcoming events. And, of course, if you get it, share it. Help us spread the word.
More soon- Tiffany
