Social Media Club Philadelphia

 

August is a busy month for Social Media in Philly.  Social Media Club Philly is taking a break from our regular meetings, but that does not mean we are not active.  We are supporting several social media related events in Philly and we encourage you to join us at one or all of them!

 

Social Media Day Philly is teaming up with Chevy again, and we're sliding the event to Wednesday August 11th! Chevy's "Cruze Philly" will start around 4:30pm, and give you a chance to test drive the brand-spankin' new Chevy Cruze. Other bonuses include drink tickets, appetizers, prizes, and swag! "Cruze Philly" will go till around 6pm and SMD Philly + Twizzo will follow and go until around 8pm. Hopefully everyone can make it on Wednesday (no need to re-RSVP) - and see you then!   Use hashtags #smdphilly and #cruzephilly to chat on Twitter!

August 12th - Tech Cocktail is coming to Philly!
6:30 - 9:00 pm at the Field House 1150 Filbert Street
Frank Gruber, the founder of Tech Cocktail has reached out with a special invitation to Social Media Club Philly.
Tech Cocktail is exactly what it says - a cocktail party of tech people. Several local startups, including some from DreamIt Ventures, will be showing off some of the cool innovation happening in Philly. I happen to know that some of these companies have a significant social media focus, so you probably want to check them out.

We wind up August with the Philly CitizenGulf event on August 25th. Social Media Club is a supporter of the CitizenGulf project.

Social media offers organizations an indispensable tool set for a wide variety of philanthropic activities including activism, education, donor and volunteer development, and direct fundraising. Because of its inherently personal and community-based nature, social media provides an ideal canvas to work within, allowing causes to not just communicate, but also to activate and invigorate significant grassroots activity.

  • Is social media a popularity contest or is social media about genuine relationships?
  • Are bloggers responsible for getting the facts right?
  • What makes a community real? That is: When does a web site feel like a place to and be, instead of simply a page of information to visit?
  • Does your vendor understand social media? And how do you know?
  • What are the responsibilities of Web 2.0 services to engage with and respond to the community it serves and what are the responsibilities of the community to the service?
  • How can we best support our social media community and our peers knowing full well we’re often competing for the same clients and client money?

February 2009 Meet Up

 

Speaker: Ken Jacobs

Topic: Getting Back to Basics: Social Media and Public Relations Planning

Where: Science Leadership Academy

Time: 6:30pm

Date: February 25, 2009

Register at: http://smcphillyfeb.eventbrite.com/

 

Why social media and PR this month? Because in today’s world, nearly every “public” with whom you’re trying to build a relationship is online!

 

In the current economic environment all of us—whether business owners, freelancers, or those who execute communications for non-profits, government agencies, or corporations—need to be on defense when it comes to our work.

 

The best protection against the budget cutter’s sword is a rock-solid plan—one with measurable objectives, strategies that overcome roadblocks and tactics that ultimately help achieve marketing goals.

So let’s get back to the basics of planning and discuss some best practices!

 

Ken Jacobs of Jacobs Communications Consulting, a PR consulting, training and coaching company, will present and facilitate a discussion on the basics of plan writing. You’ll learn, among other topics, how to:

 

* Create objectives that are objectives; neither strategies nor tactics

* Make sure your objectives are measurable

* Understand the Three Kinds of Objectives: Output, Outtake, and Outcome for example Car Shipping 

 

The other reason for the PR focus is because this month we’re partnering with the local PRSA (Public Relation Society of America) chapter and its new social media committee. Please welcome them to the Social Media Club!

 

Mark your calendars! We'll be sure to get back to you with a location!
