What is social media and how can it help my business?

Find answers at the upcoming 2011 Social Media Summit on Wednesday October 19th. Known as the largest annual event of its kind in the State of Hawaii, the 2nd annual Social Media Summit, as part of the larger Technology and Internet Expo, is not only the best place to see the newest and hottest products, services and cutting-edge innovations in technology, but you will also learn how to integrate social media into your business.

If you’ve had your ear to the ground, you’ve heard that Facebook and Google+ are evolving at warp speed. To be in business today, and stay relevant for the future, you need to be aware of social media and how these changes impact you. Participating in social media is not just about keeping up with the Joneses. It is where your customer is and your customer expects you to be there too! Once a newspaper fed you the news, now it is your Twitter feed. Once a website was enough but now your customers want more… brands that they can talk to, who will listen, and who will respond on Facebook, on Twitter and more.

Whether you are thinking about dipping a toe into social media or if you are a seasoned pro, gather with local and mainland social media professionals and find answers. Discussing everything from “What is social media and how can it help my business?” to the benefits of Google+ and the warp speed evolution of Facebook, you don’t want to miss this great event!

    Wishing you ALL much success with your excellent Summit on Social Media. Your discussions and ideas are critical for local networking throughout the Islands AND global networking to spread the meaning of ALOHA that is so needed in our world filled with much conflict these days. Mahalo nui loa and Aloha from one who lived in beautiful Hawaii for 16 years and hopes to return someday. Special Aloha to Karen Weikert:) EdC  (Twitter @EdwardColozzi)

      Aloha Ed and mahalo for the kind words. We have 2 blog posts coming out this week, one the funny fabulous and favorite moments and the other the wisdom shared at the Summit so be on the lookout. Until you return, we’re saving a warm wave just for you. – Karen
