Jay Baer is coming to town

3 Sep

The indisputable thing about social media is that the landscape changes every day. Look at how FourSquare is exploding one minute as the location-based platform of choice, then Facebook nips in with a competitive service. It will be something else before the end of the month.

You can’t be complacent and think you know the score unless you keep optimizing your knowledge.

To that end, we are bringing speakers in to Copeland and Tartan regularly to keep us on top of trends, best practices and killer strategies.

Chicago-based rock star social media consultant Jay Baer (his website here) will be with us November 3rd and 4th to shake things up and conduct some workshops around our existing clients.

As with Tim Williams’ seminar last month, we will be joined by a number of Western Canada’s best independent agencies, including Kellett (Yellowknife),  Ragan Creative (Kamloops), Elevator (Vancouver), Zero Gravity (Calgary) and Aasman (Whitehorse) – all members of T-CAAN.

We are also working with Yukari Peerless to organize a Tweetup so Victoria’s Twitter community can meet Jay. That will be on the evening of the 3rd, location to be announced next week.

We’d have brought him out sooner but the guy is booked solid! Always a good sign…

    Looking forward to it! I’m a huge fan of BC, and Victoria in particular.

    For the record, I’m based in Bloomington, Indiana but Chicago is just a 4-hour drive northwest of me.

    Noted, with apologies. But that kind of kills my Chicago Baer’s pun…

    We are pumped for your visit Jay.

    Ooh, that’s cool. I follow Jay on Twitter – he is most excellent. Unfortunately (?) I’ll be in San Diego for the Ace Fitness Conference. One day soon though, I’m gonna take all your excellent advice and like a bat outta hell will burst onto the Social Media Scene.
