Social Media Club Chicago 9/23 Features LinkedIn Tutorial

Ever wished you could have a LinkedIn referral network that automatically sends you leads, gets you noticed and advances your company’s goals but didn’t think you had the time, tools or talent to go from sitting on the sidelines to becoming a sought-out superstar?

On September 23, I’ll be presented a workshop for Social Media Club Chicago that’s based on the LinkedIn chapter I wrote in the recently published book, “Success Secrets of the Social Media Marketing Superstars.” Published by Entrepreneur Press with lead author Mitch Meyerson, this is a book that includes words of wisdom from over 20 social media marketing leaders. I’m honored to one of them and am pleased to have the opportunity to share my knowledge, especially with groups like Social Media Club Chicago. If you’re in the Chicago area, I hope you can join us at Hotel Palomar for the pre-program and a panel discussion about “Social Media by Design.”

Register to attend Social Media By Design + LinkedIn Power Profile Workshop.

Because I know you’re busy, I’m posting the invitation copy here . . . .
