Upcoming Social Media Breakfast

SMBME 60 – Storytelling and Creating Content with Ann Handley

SMBME is part of the Everybody Writes Book Tour

Your social media plan doesn’t start with Facebook or Twitter. It doesn’t start with how many fans or followers you have. It starts with your story and then how you are going to get that story out to the world.

everybody-writesWe are SOOOOO excited to have Ann Handley coming up to Portland for this very special SMBME. Her new book Everybody Writes is a go-to guide for creating good content that attracts and retains customers. It is getting a great response and is now a WSJ Bestseller.

And yes, a copy of the book is included in your SMBME ticket! HUGE thanks to our sponsors for making that happen.
