Social Media Day 2020

When: Tuesday, June 30, 2020 from 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Where: Online Webinar

Pricing: SMA Members FREE, Non-Members $10

Mashable’s Eleventh Annual Social Media Day is an annual global celebration that highlights the contributions made by developers and social media enthusiasts alike. Platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram have revolutionized the way we communicate with each another. Not only does social media have the power to keep us in touch with our friends and family, it can also connect us with the world. The goal of this event is to bring together business professionals, innovators, influencers and the general public for an opportunity to connect their online networks offline, in a face-to-face setting, bringing communities closer together.

Social Media Association members are a group of like-minded people who love social media and the power that it has to influence consumers, change behavior and secure buying decisions.

Bring your questions, a drink, and come have some fun with us!

Social media is all about engagement. And if you want someone’s attention, one of the best ways to get it is to tell them a compelling story.

In this presentation, award-winning storyteller Tracey Segarra will help you find and tell the kinds of stories that resonate with the people you’re trying to reach on social media.

Using examples from her own LinkedIn and others’ posts, she’ll show how authenticity and vulnerability in storytelling drives empathy, which leads to engagement.

Find out how you can mine your own personal stories to connect, persuade and influence.

Tracey Segarra is an award-winning storyteller, public speaker and story coach whose true personal stories have been broadcast on The Moth Radio Hour on NPR, and on the Risk and Story Collider podcasts. She also hosts and produces a live storytelling show on Long Island, “Now You’re Talking!”. Find out more about her at traceysegarra.com.
