|Making the Web Work for You: Social Media for Non-Geeks|
Four consultants who have made Web 2.0 tools work for them answer your questions about how non-geeks can use social media for business.
McInnis Park Golf Center Restaurant, 350 Smith Ran
We've heard a lot about Web 2.0 tools this year, but all this social media stuff is confusing for busy senior consultants. It seems there's a new social network or microblogging platform launched every day. Which ones are important? How can we keep up? Isn't it just for kids and geeks?
This panel introduces you to four consultants who have made these new tools work for them-without having to sacrifice time they should be spending with their clients. You'll hear how they've succeeded by selecting one or two tools that best suit their skills and their business goals.
Here are some questions we'll address:
* How much time do these tools really take?
* How hard is it to learn to use them?
* What kind of business results can you get?
* What's the real cost of these so-called free services?
* Can you replace other marketing methods with Web 2.0?
