SocialWyo holds social media conference Oct. 13 at Hynds Building in downtown Cheyenne

From the SocialWyo blog:

Thanks to the generous support of Laramie County Community College and the College of Workforce and Community Development, the third SocialWyo conference will be Oct. 13.

And to celebrate some of the great stuff going on downtown, we're switching it up a bit! Here's the quick and dirty breakdown:

SocialWyo 3.0 will be at the Hynds Building, 1602 Capitol Ave., in downtown Cheyenne on Oct. 13.

Admission is $99 and includes continental breakfast and lunch. Call LCCC's Darlene Kaelin at 778-4381 to register. (Sorry, phone registrations only.) 

Here's the schedule:
8 a.m. Doors Open
8:30 -10 a.m. Facebook for Marketers
10:15 - 11:45 a.m. Twitter for Business
Noon - 1:30 p.m. Lunch and Keynote Speaker Erika Napoletano
1:30 - 2:30 p.m. Roundtable Discussions

You want details? OK!

The Facebook and Twitter classes will start at the ground level, but if you're an experienced marketer, you will get something out of the sessions. We'll cover, quickly, the basic set up of a fan page and Twitter account, introduce you to the Facebook algorithm and basic Twitter operation and help you develop strategies for deploying your new knowledge. If you're trying to figure out how often to tweet or post, much less what you should tweet or post, we'll help you out.

After those sessions, we'll move onto lunch with keynote speaker Erika Napoletano, head redhead at Redhead Writing. She'll discuss personal branding and how not to look like a doofus online -- all of that material will be relevant to your personal and professional brands. And judging from her social media presence, I'm pretty sure you won't want to miss out. I've been following her (and laughing with her!) for about a year now, and I'm increasingly impressed with her commitment to teaching and learning about social and branding. Based in Denver, she blogs regularly, tweets and posts often and writes a column for On any platform, she promises unfiltered content, blunt advice and unpopular thoughts. Follow her. 

After all of that, we'll still want to make sure you've got a plan of action when you return to the office. Roundtable discussions will help you work out some finer points of your content strategy, answer more detailed or even more basic questions about social media and marketing, much less connect directly with professionals whose goals for social are similar to your own.

Ready to learn? OK. Here are the digits: 778-4381. Register. Or else.
