Making Meaningful Social Media Connections for Powerful Results

Social Media is not just a way to reconnect with distant family and friends.


The Association for Women in Communication—Santa Barbara announces the next program about Creating Community as Communicators in the Virtual World, Making Meaningful Social Media Connections for Powerful Results.

Social Media is not just a way to reconnect with distant family and friends. Social Media can be used to market your services, and connect you with clients, colleagues, and mentors. Your network need not be limited to people you have met. There’s a social media revolution underway and communicators cannot afford to NOT understand the tools and best practices to tap the power of social media.

Lorrie Thomas Ross is known as The Marketing Therapist® or Wild Web Woman®. But when you break down her work as an advisor, speaker, trainer and agency lead, the core distinction is using online tools strategically to make meaningful relationships. As a she-geek with super relationship savvy, her craft brings the heart of marketing to organizations who are “in it to win it”.

Please join AWC-SB on April 2nd as Lorrie Thomas Ross shares her expertise on how to use social media to form meaningful and powerful connections.

Date: Wednesday, April 2, 2014, 5:30- 7:30 PM
