Using Social Media to Build Your "Real Life" Network
“I'd like to add you to my professional network...” Sound familiar? Social media networks are often criticized for fostering weak associations and inauthentic relationships, for keeping people from being “in the moment.” But what if social media tools can actually enhance and amplify your networking and relationship building efforts in real life?
Join us on Friday, August 5th at Gather RVA Downtown to hear one of Richmond's most connected and media savvy consultant talk about how to make the most out of social media, and how it can help you find in-person opportunities to engage.
Whether you are a confident social media user or not, understanding how to leverage platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to connect with other designers, collaborators, clients, or prospects is crucial to building your design business.
