Speaking on Social Media
As a speaker on social media and on-line marketing, Janet uses plain English to explain social media marketing, networking and online relationship building. Her speaking style is open and honest, humorous and information rich. She customizes each presentation to the audience and their needs and can speak on a variety of topics including:
- Social Media and how it can create new relationships with people you didn’t even know you needed to know. How do you connect with people efficiently and effectively through social media channels? How do you find them? How do you encourage them to communicate with you?
- Boardroom talks. Having trouble explaining to the CXO’s why you need to be participating in social media? Janet can come in with solid case studies, best practices and metrics to show the value, explain how to be effective without using up all your resources, and how to measure return.
- Social Media monitoring How to listen to your market and your competitors to deliver an even better brand, product or service.What tools can you put into place to help you hear conversations both negative and positive and turn them into something valuable to all concerned?
- Do I really HAVE to have a blog, a Twitter account, a Facebook page and YouTube channel to succeed? The quick answer is no. Let Janet explain how to find where to participate and give you some tips to succeed. How do you evaluate the existing and constantly changing tools available and find the right ones to reach your goals?
- Job hunting with social media. How to set yourself up to be highly visible and put your best assets forward, then find people who are looking for your skills. (HR people take heart, Janet can help you too!)
- Twitter, Twitter, Twitter! One of the most popular presentations. Everybody wants to understand now to use Twitter without having to spend all day “Tweeting” and monitoring. Examples of successful implementation, tips and tricks and how to build a network of relationships that works for you.
- Making Facebook ads WORK. Anybody can create a Facebook ad, but to really make those promotions work it needs to be carefully planned and targeted. Janet can show you how.
Of course this is not the end of the list. What do you need? With the experience she’s got under her belt, Janet can come up with a custom presentation that will reach your goals.
Janet has presented on social media at a number of conferences, workshops and summits. Have you got a remote team and you need to get everybody on board? Janet can do an informative session followed by a Q&A period to ramp up quickly.

“I highly recommend Janet as a professional speaker, moderator, keynoter or panelist. Janet provides just the right amount of authoritative and credible presence, while being very warm, funny and approachable at the same time. Having been in the tech industry for a few years and excelling as a true early adopter, she’s extremely knowledgeable about all kinds of technology–better yet, can deliver her practical know-how in easy to understand nuggets of wisdom and actionable information for any audience to understand. Tons of insight and fun to work with – I would consider myself lucky to get her again at any one of my events!” –Alyce Lindquist , President , Social Media Club San Francisco / Silicon Valley Chapter
