Platform - Jackie Wolven

It isn’t just social media anymore -- you are developing a platform to share your message and attract the right customer, publisher, investor or visitor.

Tying together social media, blogging, and brand development this workshop will walk through ALL the elements you need to get yourself noticed.

We will cover the basics of what a platform is and how to craft yours -- helping you through exercises that cast away what isn’t serving your brand. We will cover brands that are rocking their platform on every media and those that are sorely lacking, to help you see the difference. Tools, tips and tricks will be part of this session -- be prepared to take notes and walk away knowing what you want to do to develop your platform.
