Social Media Day Orange County – #SMDAYOC

June 29, 2012

Hey!  This is an open letter to all my friends — as well as new friends whom I will meet (have met?) today at Social Media Day OC 2012.  As of this writing, I’m looking forward to personally meeting a lot of you today.  I am presenting a session topic; I am typically asked if my presentation will be available for download.  Short answer: yes.  Scroll further for a little info about the materials for my session topic today.

And, feel free to find out more about me and connect.

What’s Social Media Day About?


If this is your first time here and your first time hearing about Social Media Day, it is, in a nutshell an annual global event (as declared and ground swelled by Mashable) to recognize “the digital revolution that’s happening right before our eyes.”

Now, whether or not you think social media is still the revolution a lot of folks say it is (I mean, how long does a revolution last anyway? ‘Seems like we’ve been revolutionizing for at least half a decade now, right?), there will in any case be a lot of folks gathering to discuss, learn and share stories about social media and their experiences with it in business and local communities.  I, for one, am looking forward to hearing from friends about novel ways in which they’re seeing social media being used for social good and humanitarian efforts around the world.  (Please share some of your experiences about that in the comments below.)

Presentation Icon Session Topic: Beyond YouTube 101 – Eight Factors To Juice Your Viewer-Influence

My contribution today will be to host a session topic:   I’ve agreed to speak on the topic of web video and YouTube.  But, rather than hit points about YouTube 101 basics, the topic I’ll be addressing in my 4:15 p.m. (PST) session today will be: Beyond YouTube 101: 8 Factors to Juice Your Viewer-Influence.

For my session attendees, I’ll post a link to my presentation as a sticky post at the top of this page.  There won’t be a need to signup or subscribe; just go up there and get it.  But, make sure you get it before midnight Sunday morning 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, July 3rd, if you don’t want any strings attached because I’ll be taking the banner down after Social Media Day (global) ends.  After that, it — along with some additional related downloads — will be available for  ScreencastingWizard subscribers in the download area.  It’ll still be free, it’s just that you’ll have to subscribe to get it after Saturday night.  Fair enough?

Okay.  That’s it for now.  If you’re in the vicinity of Orange County, California today and are planning on attending Social Media Day OC, please make sure and find me and say hi!  I love taking relationships from the URL sphere to the IRL venues.
