I’m pleased to announce that, by popular demand, we now have a Solo PR Pro Facebook fan page!
Why a Facebook page? Though social media is what participants make of it (this means you), in my mind I see our Solo PR Pro community breaking out like this:
- Solo PR Pro blog – The home base of our community, the blog features posts on topics of interest to independent PR consultants – and those considering this career path. If you haven’t already subscribed to receive posts by email or RSS, consider signing up – it’s the easiest way to make sure you never miss a post.
- #solopr on Twitter – In addition to the valuable information exchange that takes place using the #solopr hashtag on Twitter at all times, the weekly #solopr chats, held each Wednesday from 1-2 pm Eastern, is way to receive immediate, real-time feedback on your most pressing questions. Send any questions in advance to @KellyeCrane (or confidentially to me via direct message) and then participate in the live discussion. You can also read the transcripts after the fact here on the blog.
- Solo PR Pros LinkedIn Group – In-depth, intellectual discussions on important issues for consultants and the PR profession as a whole. This group allows us to explore questions and answers in a long-form format (well beyond the 140 character limit we have during Twitter chats).
- Facebook Fan Page – A come-as-you-are place to celebrate the Solo PR Pro community. Do you have a picture of independent consultants hob-nobbing at a networking event? Have you recently won a new client? Come across a hilarious viral video we could all appreciate? The Facebook page is our virtual water cooler, and you don’t have to be solo to participate. Become a Fan today and get support from your fellow pros!
Do you agree with how I’ve characterized our community’s social media participation? Is there anything additional you’d like to see, or anything we should be doing differently? Let us know in the comments!
