Podcast: Latest in Social Media for Creative Freelancers

CFC 2013 logoAs we count down to the Early Bird Deadline for CFC/HOW Design Live (it’s this Friday, March 15), I’ll be posting a new podcast every day. Here’s #1:

I’m especially excited because this year at CFC some of the wonderful speakers who were with us early on are coming back, including Sarah Durham, Mark O’Brien, June Walker and Colleen Wainwright (a.k.a. The Communicatrix).

Colleen is on the cutting edge of social media and in our recent interview for the CFC 2013 Speaker Podcast Series, she shared with me the latest in what’s working (and not working) for creative professionals and freelancers.

What’s working? When people share what they’re thinking and doing that’s relevant and they do it in a way that’s fun and relaxed.

What’s not working? Anything that involves pushing, trying too hard or yelling, loudness or trying to grab attention.

In this podcast, Colleen also tells me:

  • What’s the newest thing (Vine)
  • Worst thing you can do about your own social media (Panic)
  • What she thinks of my re-tweeting strategy (Spectacular!)

Come see and hear her in person at CFC 2013: The Business Conference for the Creatively Self Employed (June 22-24 in San Francisco). Early bird deadline is March 15. And you can get an extra $50 off with promo code “ILISE”

AND Find her at Communicatrix.com (and on FB a lot and GoodReads.com)
