     How to Brand Yourself Like You
    Mean Business on Social Media

    Via Zoom
    Attend in person and/or access recording for 30 days

    Directions for accessing this webinar will
    be included in your registration confirmation email.

    Your webinar registration includes access to video recording for 30 days.

    Do you want to open more doors and increase your chances of landing that next speaking gig? Chances are people are trying to connect with you on social media. If you don’t have an active social media presence then you just might be missing opportunity. More importantly, your personal brand as a speaker could be suffering due to a lack luster social presence.

    In this virtual workshop NSA Virginia member Shannon Loy (CEO and Social Media Whiz of The Social Ginger) is going to cover the most important areas of how to have and build a social media presence as a speaker.

    Did you know “Studies show that between 70-80% of people research a company (or individual) online before visiting the business or deciding to do business with them.” (dubhub.com).

    Building a social media presence starts with well…actually doing it. You can do it; you just have to get started! It’s a matter of identifying where to put your time and energy to get the best return. Focus on what matters: use the social media platforms your target audience is on, have a website with good SEO (search engine optimization), increase your visibility on Google, use tools or hire someone to help you, spend money to promote yourself and create and use video.

    Make 2020 your best social media marketing year yet! Join us and leave with a clearer understanding of how you should be approaching your social media presence.

    The future success of your brand as a speaker depends on it!

    NSA-DC March 2020 Chapter Meeting



    Rob Oddi

     Shameless Promotion - How to leverage the power of video to increase your income, celebrity, and get everyone talking about you 


    Saturday, March 14, 2020

    Silver Spring Civic Center
    1 Veterans Pl.
    Silver Spring, MD 20910

    8:30 am – 11:30 am

     Early bird rates end Friday, March 6, 2020

    With visual sharing apps and social platforms now being used by almost every demographic, how can we as consultants take advantage of advances in both technology and internet speeds to reach our audiences to not only deliver our message in innovative ways, but to also build relationships, confidence, and ultimately create value so that ‘getting to know you’ becomes ‘getting to hire you’?

    We’re often told that we’re not solely in the speaking and consulting business, but also in the marketing business, yet most consultants still find it difficult to market beyond ‘word of mouth’ and ‘referrals’. To reach new audiences, you have to find them where they are, and connect with them in a way that creates interest, delivers value, and demonstrates credibility. Video can accomplish all of this and more.

    With over 500 million hours of video watched on YouTube every day, and one-third of online activity being spent watching video, if you’re not utilizing video in your marketing efforts, you’re missing out on the most powerful way to reach your audience. Marketers who use video grow revenue 49% faster than non-video users.

    This content-rich session will give you actionable tips and takeaways to help take your marketing efforts to the next level including:

    ● What you need and don’t need to begin making powerful video content
    ● Different ways to successfully use video to create attraction (livestream, webinar, pre-recorded video, etc)
    ● Equipment, online tools, tips, and techniques to look like a pro
    ● How video can form part of a larger marketing effort
    ● How I used videos to launch a part of my business that brought in over 6 figures in the first year

    And now Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up!
