Social Media Camp is a participant-driven, low-cost event organized with the intent of helping Small Businesses and Job Seekers to learn how Social Media can help them with their current (or starting up) business, or with their job search.
This will be a traditional open space camp (what is an Open Space Camp?) event where people who work with small businesses, job seekers, and even those people in bigger businesses who do marketing and communications will come together to learn from each other. Everyone who attends is a participant and hopefully a teacher too.
In the morning, we will come together in a big group to plan out the majority of the sessions that will be taught throughout the day. If you have a session you want to lead, or one that you want to see and learn from, the planning session is the place to bring it up.
In addition to the participant lead sessions, Social Media Club is offering a special Social Media for your Small Business ‘track’ that is designed for the small business person who is just beginning to explore social media. We will have some of the leading social media marketers in the world in NYC during Internet Week, and several of them, including Social Media Club co-founders Chris Heuer and Howard Greenstein will be teaching these classes.
The cost for the day is $25, which covers lunch and a t-shirt. We are seeking multiple participating sponsors to offset the costs. We do not yet have our venue, but it will be in Manhattan in an easily accessible location. To register, or if your organziation wishes to sponsor, please see our Social Media Camp NYC Registration Page.
