Biloxi, MS – May 12, 2016 – Christopher Wick, Founder & Social Media Consultant, SMM International, was invited to speak with Rotary members by Stephen P. Theobald, President, Rotary of Edgewater, on May 11 and Mark W. LaSalle, Ph.D., President, Rotary of Moss Point on May 12, 2016. Rotary International service efforts include promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, helping disadvantaged mothers and children, supporting education, and growing local economies.
Christopher lectured on “How to Grow Your Rotary Membership with Internet Branding and Social Media Secrets.” He exchanged his proactive insight of the benefits and value for social media in the business world, and how to develop and utilize social media skills to market area businesses or not-for-profit charitable organizations in the BIloxi, MS local community.
“We cannot manage what we cannot measure, so social media always comes back to the numbers!” Christopher Wick, Founder & Social Media Consultant, said. “By using analytic data, we’re able to reach our business objectives.”
“Everyone was anxious to hear what Christopher had to say and now we know why,” Stephen P. Theobald, President, Rotary of Edgewater, said. “Most of us are scared to death of even attempting to use social media to market our business or charitable organizations.” “With his presentation, I feel like Christopher took a little of the angst out of our fear and gave us knowledge and confidence with which to proceed. Using these newfound skills, I am sure we will be successful.”
“Christopher has a lot of energy when he presents, which raised the level of enthusiasm in the room considerably and encouraged the audience to respond positively,” Cindy Lamb, member, Rotary of Moss Point, said. He also encourages involvement and interaction during the presentation, which assists in retaining the information. “I learned how to tweet, who to follow, who follows me on Twitter, and why that information is important to promotion. Also, that tweeting can enhance other social media platforms.”
