So you’re a wannabe blogger or social media type. You’re tweeting interesting posts, but you need more. Or you’re a hip professional looking for a bigger digital toolbox.
is for everyone. Beginners. Nerds. Bloggers. Designers. Social Media Rock Stars. The two-day retreat in the blogosphere features some of the region’s leading social media experts who happily (and often dramatically) teach others, on any level, how to grow a social media presence through voice, video, pictures, text, content marketing, podcasting and other whatnot.
“If I had to say Pittsburgh is doing social media right, I would have to agree with myself,” says Justin Kownacki, who founded PodCamp Pittsburgh back in 2006. “The Pittsburgh social media scene is different than a lot of other (cities) I’ve been to because it still feels like a community.”
More important than what you wear is the tech you bring with you. Carry along your laptop, camera, mobile, iPad, any device. Pen and paper works too. There’s WiFi a-plenty. Tweet with #pcpgh7.
This year's event is aimed at helping small business owners, in-house communications professionals and those interested in polishing their skills and staying on top of the modern web, says Norm Huelsman.
“PodCamp attendees always leave our event energized with an expanded knowledge of social media as well as a list of new contacts and friends.”
PodCamp 7 takes place Oct. 27-28 on the campus of Point Park University. Registration
is required. You can attend part or all of the weekend.
And walk away with a cool t-shirt too.
