We’re the underdog in every single thing that we do … until the day we’re not. We’ve just got to trust the process and understand that even though I’m gearing us up to run 100 mph, the total body of work’s success will be a slow progression.
As far as I’m concerned, we’re waking up every day in last place and our job is to try to get content and tell stories for you in whatever capacity that is — in an email or newsletter or online or social. We’re gonna try to do that for you whether it’s through live streaming via our Magic Mile Media platform or through news via Neuse News.
I’m really excited about the people we’ve got on our team, and also that we’ve got a huge social media summit coming up in October. We have speakers coming from Winston-Salem, Wilmington, Raleigh, Chapel Hill and Greenville. We’ll also have a locals-only panel from Kinston.
The summit is very affordable, too — through the end of August, registration for the summit is only $75.
The whole purpose of the summit is to help small businesses and organizations. Too many businesses and organizations understand there is a free tool called social media (including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter), but they don’t really utilize it. Many times they just post simply because it’s National French Fry Day or whatever and they have no regular social media strategy.
Look, there is very little rhyme or reason to what most organizations use their social media platform for. My goal is to bring some of the best and brightest minds in the state together, so we can learn from each other and network and grow as a community of marketers, business owners and social media managers.

And don’t forget to vote. Too many have perished for you to abstain.
