What’s New: Social Media Happenings in New Jersey

Some exciting news and some opportunities for some social media learning coming your way.

First, we are very excited to introduce the FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties “Facing Hunger” campaign as part of Hunger Action Month. We have created 5 unique cover images that individuals and businesses and can upload to their Facebook timelines to help educate and speak out about the need for food assistance in Monmouth and Ocean Counties. This is a very unique and visually dynamic campaign. Users can download one of five banners from the FoodBank’s Photo Album on Facebook. We are encouraging those who do upload a photo to come back to the page and leave a comment about it. It’s a great way to A: drive people to your page to grab the image and B: Bring them back and get them Liking and commenting on your page. We’ve already had multiple shares through pages and individuals. You can see it in action on JerseyBites’s Facebook page.

You may have noticed the NJ King Crab competition that we have been running all summer on JerseyBites.com. This has been an all encompassing campaign, incorporating POS materials in every restaurant with QR code pointing to the contest page, tying in social media sharing after each vote, PR and more.  The contest culminates at the Viking Cooking School in Atlantic City where the 3 finalists will compete in the crab cake show down. I will be serving as one of the judges. We will be live streaming this event on September 24th.

Upcoming Workshops: Over the past month I have delivered several LinkedIn workshops, most recently for the American Chemical Society at their national convention in Philadelphia. This month, I’ll be back at First Financial Federal Credit Union on September 13th to give an hour presentation on all the great networking opportunities that await you on LinkedIn. Recent grads, job seekers, sales professionals, B2B businesses all should be using LinkedIn to its fullest potential. Join me for an hour of learning LinkedIn.
