Upcoming Classes in Freeport, Worcester and Online!

I’m excited to share three upcoming classes I will be teaching in May and June. While two are in-person classes in the New England area, the third is a free online webinar I will be offering through Sverve. I hope you will join me for at least one of them!

If you like the sound of these classes feel free to drop me a line. I offer private workshops and am available to speak at local and national conferences and events. I’m always open to offering online classes as well. You can view my classes and workshops page for a list of topics I typically cover.



Using Your Social Media Influence for Social Good: Online

I am excited to partner with Sverve once again for a webinar dedicated to those interested in using social media for social good! 

We work hard at building our blogs and growing our social media networks. Most of us strive to provide good content and engage with our readers. We might even earn some cash from time to time from our blogs and social media channels. Why? Because readers, brands and public relations companies understand that our words mean something. That people are listening to what we have to say.

Imagine what kind of change we can make in the world if we used our social media influence for social good. Not only do we empower our readers to become advocates for the causes they care for, we also feel good about giving back.

Marketing Substance Abuse Treatment, Prevention and Recovery Programs: Worcester, MA

This class will be offered at the 45th annual New England School of Addiction Studies and the 14th annual School of Prevention Studies. The program will take place at Worcester State University in Worcester, MA from June 9 – 12, 2014. My class will be offered as part of the Operational Management: Addiction Field Concentration track. Check out the full course list and course descriptions and register.

Most substance abuse treatment, prevention and recovery programs do not have the luxury of big marketing budgets or even a designated staff marketing person. Coupled with the stigma that comes along with substance use disorders, marketing and branding an organization becomes challenging, to say the least. Managers are tasked with promoting programs on shoestring budgets and little education on the intricacies of marketing. This course will examine various concepts and strategies for developing an integrated marketing communications plan – that includes traditional and social media strategies – within your organization.

How Bloggers Can Use Google+ Hangouts On Air

Not too long ago, I wrote a guest post on A Dish of Daily Life, How to Set Up a Google+ Hangout and Why You Should. In the post, I noted that a post on Google+ Hangouts On Air was a “post for another day.”

Well that day is today. And I’m happy to say that my post on the topic of Google+ Hangouts On Air is on the Sverve blog. Sverve connects female social media influencers with brands for paid campaigns and peers for endorsements. If you’re a blogger or social media influencer, you need to be on Sverve!
