A note from Jimmy about the event...

We are excited to have you at the first social media conference hosted by Artistic Hub. We have spent a lot of time creating a curriculum for you to effectively harness social media personally and professionally.

We believe 2 things:

  1. There are a lot of tools out there, but only a few necessary ones to get the biggest results
  2. Success with social media is directly related to the idea of Social Capital

Our workshop is going to focus on these two things and give you tools you need to be successful.

You will leave today with a new or improved blog, an effective LinkedIn account, an understanding of Facebook ads, your own social community on Ning, and the knowledge to harness Twitter effectively.

Our number one goal is for you to walk away with the skills to improve your career, life, or business through social media with the ability to implement these immediately.

Thanks for coming out!
