I was honored to be ask to share my skills (as little as they are) on a panel for Social Media for attendees at the Western United Dairymen Convention on March 10, 2010. Dino Giacomazzi and myself were asked by Mark Looker (communications Guru for Western United Dairymen).
It seems like yesterday, when Mark spoke to me about social media (Blogging, Twitter, Facebook). I had no idea what he was talking about. With urging and direction and the help of Dino and Ray Prock I decided to give it a whirl. I saw the need of putting a “face” back on the farmer and allowing consumers to get to know us again.
I have so very much to learn but am grateful to Dino, Mark and Ray along with many others for their direction and guidance.
Dino put together a great power point that gives the nuts and bolts of social media and answers many questions. He really explains the details of how and WHY we should use social media to connect to the masses. I (in the 5th video) explain how and why I got started…and face it…if I can you can…really)!
I give my blogging experience and the realization that if I can do it….anyone can!
The videos are long but if you are interested and wish to learn more about social media I urge you to give them a look!
