Ken Cook and I have decided to launch a Social Media Breakfast series in the Atlanta area. We are planning the first event to take place on Thursday, July 23rd, 2009 in Gwinnett County. We have secured the location for the first event, Duluth Diner on PIB near Howell Station. We expect to have a program that runs from around 7:00am to 9:00am, with networking opportunities covering at least the first and last half hours, with breakfast and information from 7:30 to 8:30. Of course, it is early and if things change we’ll keep you informed.
Currently the plan is to have events rotating to various parts of the Atlanta metro. We are so spread out that having events in only one location would make it tough for a lot of people.
We haven’t set a date yet, but we are planning for the second meeting to take place in Cobb County. We would like to also be able to hold future events in the South Metro area. In order to do that, we would love to find a partner in that area to coordinate the event.
You might know Ken as the KC half of the JCKC Twitter Tuesday program on BlogTalkRadio. Despite the Twitter-specific name, they talk about all sorts of social media and networking, and bring in cool guests from a variety of social media spaces.
This is NOT only open to real estate professionals. In fact, we would VERY much like to have people from outside of the real estate industry. We will be discussing how to effectively and responsibly utilize social media for business. The discussions will range from basics for beginners to advanced topics and integrating social networking and social media like blogging, Twitter and FaceBook into a broader marketing strategy.
We’d love to hear from you! We need to have an idea of how many people are going to make it to the event.
