Social Networking Keynote Presentation

I'm very excited about my keynote presentation at the ASI Dallas Show February 3rd, 2010.  I've attended many social networking / social media presentations and read nearly a dozen books on the subject.  The majority of the presentations and books focus on the subject at a macro level.  But they don't distill it down for the average sales person or small business.

I've taken the best of what I've read, heard and my own personal experience and created a powerful session that will help every salesperson from any industry maximize their sales by utilizing social media to:
  • Improve the cold call closing ratio from 1 in 100 to 1 in 10!
  • Identify key contacts at target companies
  • Creating relationships with people who you don't know
  • Avoiding the mistakes most people make in social media
  • Using social media to improve Google rankings.
 A few of the key tips:
  • A quick and easy way to identify all your customers birthdays and make it special
  • A fun way to connect with clients on a very personal level
  • How to spend only 10 minutes on Twitter each week while creating contacts
  • Using LinkedIn in ways that most people never think of
 I don't pretend to be a social media expert.  There are thousands of them out there.  Instead, I'm a business person who knows how to get things done without the hype and on a low budget.  

If you are in the Dallas area February 3rd, 2010, look me up on twitter (www.twitter.com/daledenham) and I'll send you an invite to the presentation. 

Come with an expectation of actionable information, not hype.

Video 101

I attended a great session by Geiger Becky Blair on Video 101. While I don't do a lot of video, I think people wanting to do some basic personal or professional videos will benefit from some of the tools she mentionend.
