Social Media Consultation, Management, and Training

Those of you who already know me are probably also connected on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, FourSquare, Instagram, and many other niche social media tools. I’m an explorer of the medium, and got my start on Facebook in 2006, Twitter in 2007 and even remember when MySpace was cool. My wife and I immediately saw the business potential of social media and dove right in with our company, “Doggie Cakes” by making profiles and finding ways to engage our customers, announce our events, and sell our products. We were soon, everywhere in social media – and learned a lot in the process.

Long story short, in early 2011 I was approached by my first social media client for some consultation and management of their online presence. As more referrals started coming in, I discovered and developed my systems for managing, monitoring, communicating, and reporting. I also evaluated a lot of management, scheduling, and evaluation tools in the first year. I must say, I now have my favorites Рwhich you will hear about in upcoming blogs.

While building up my social media business, I continued with my graphic and web design projects, and also started gathering a trusted and talented support team of partners and contractors to help me in that area. Social media is the backbone of my business; however, so I launched a new page on this site that talks about what I do, and the two basic service plans that I operate.

Twas the Night Before Social Fresh EAST

Social Fresh is coming to Tampa tomorrow, February 6-7, 2012 and I’m going courtesy of my wining e-mail to Head of Lettuce Media, who are local marketing partners for this amazing event. Thanks Antony Francis and Amber Osborne (Miss Destructo) for the opportunity to attend.

The event has been using the hashtag #SocialFresh on Twitter, so you can catch the excitement by watching the countless tweets by speakers, organizers, sponsors, and attendees. The format is great, because it has top social media experts from national/international companies, and there are no break-out sessions. Everyone will get a chance to have the same experiences for two full-days.

Scott Monty; Christopher Penn; and Jay Baer are each providing keynote presentations. I’m also looking forward to hearing from Adrian Parker, Radio Shack; Chris Moody, Red Hat; Chuck Hemann, WCG; Eric Boggs, Argyle Social Media; Jane Quigley, Strategy JQ; Jesse Catlin, eMarketer; Kipp Bodnar, HubSpot; Matthew Knell, AOL; Shauna Causey, Nordstrom; and Corey Creed, Hippo Internet Marketing.

Learn more about this event online at and catch me on Twitter at @JasonLongo and follow hashtag #SocialFresh
