FREE Social Media Event: PodCamp Cleveland May 1

Free Social and New Media Conference May 1, PodCamp Cleveland

There’s more buzz about social media for business in the past several months than there was when Facebook was released to the general public!

Don’t you want to know more about podcasting, using Twitter and Facebook for business, how to grow your professional network on LinkedIn & keep track of business contacts on Plaxo? What about the safety and security of using such sites and how to interact with your readers online? Get the answers to these questions as well as many more (you’ll want to bring your own questions & ideas as well) at the First Annual PodCamp Cleveland, May 1, 2010. It’s FREE!

Attend this FREE event at the Cuyahoga Valley Career Center (CVCC) in Brecksville, Ohio to learn more about how you can use social media, keyword analysis, Web design strategy, blogging, article writing, PR’s and more to enhance your hobby, non-profit organization, solopreneur/entrepreneur business or just for fun!

What else do you get for FREE at PodCamp Cleveland?

  • Free Continental breakfast
  • Meet & talk to experts in the industry
  • Network with new media specialists, experts & others who are using new media successfully
  • Free lunch
  • Attend any or all sessions
  • Promotional items and/or giveaways

The UnConference begins at 9am on Saturday, May 1 with registration, networking and a continental breakfast. They will have a keynote speaker (yet to be announced, I can’t wait to learn who it is!) to welcome everyone to PodCamp Cleveland and discuss the future trends for podcamps across the country and around the world, then the first break-out sessions begin at 10am with a FREE lunch (I love free) at noon and more break-out sessions in the afternoon. Don’t forget to stay for the “last words” and giveaways around 4pm too!

What should you bring to a podcamp? Since I have attended 2 other podcamps, I have a few suggestions for you.

1. Pen & notebook (either paper or electronic)

2. Business cards (lots of these to share with all the new people you’ll meet)

3. Digital camera and/or video camera (yes, unlike other conferences, they encourage you to take pictures & record – just give credit back via the hashtag #PCCLV10 or PodCamp Cleveland)

4. Comfortable pair of shoes – you’ll be walking up and down stairs (elevator available too) and hallways to attend break-out sessions and back to the main “hub.”

5. Casual clothes – this is not a formal conference, they encourage you to wear jeans & promote your interests (although do refrain from wearing anything that advertises alcohol, smoking or adult censored activities; afterall, you will be inside a public school)

6. Satchel or backpack – you’ll likely pick up materials and/or items that you’ll want to take home with you (and not have to stuff in your pockets while at podcamp)

7. Lots of energy & smiles – Podcamps are all about meeting friendly people, learning and sharing ideas!
