Social Media Club Announces Social Media Master Patrick O'Keefe




We recently announced a change in date for our Social Media Masters Tour and will now be kicking the series off in Atlanta on August 26, 2011. 


We’ve got some excellent sessions planned, including one hosted by Patrick O’Keefe, discussing your community – the people who love and support what you do.


Patrick will help you learn how to most effectively engage with your community and will 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.


Patrick is the founder of the iFroggy Network, a network of websites covering various interests. He has been managing online communities since 2000 and is the author of “Managing Online Forums,” a practical guide to managing online social spaces. 


Patrick will also be presenting his Community Building session at our Social Media Masters event in Los Angeles on September 9th.


We are extending all Social Media Club Open members 30% off registration using discount code:SMCOPEN with our Professional members receiving even deeper discounts on these events.  Purchase your early bird tickets before July 15th, and save $100 + 30%!  




In an effort to introduce you to some of our many resources available on Social Media Club website, we’ll be capturing a few videos over the coming weeks highlighting the new upgrades we’ve made, including our Tagged Content feature.


This gives members a great chance to see the trending topics on Social Media Club website, discover new conversations happening around industry topics and see topics being presented at chapter events across the globe. 


We’ve made this video showing you our Tagged Content feature, let us know what you think!
