Social Media Breakfast at the Minnesota State Fair: Saw You There!! September 5, 2010

Shareology packed her tiara and headed for Falcon Heights last Friday.  She probably should packed a parka and Uggs, but Social Media Breakfast Minneapolis St. Paul #29 was held inside a tent and that helped a great deal.   


Food is a key (the key?) offering at the Fair; Social Media Breakfast #29 set a new standard with food from French Meadow Bakery.  Scrambled eggs and bacon sandwiches and morning desert!   Strawberries and cream were involved!  

Ron McCoy hits the French Meadow jackpot!


Bacon AND Strawberries: who knew??


Shareology just got this same brand laptop!!



ooooooh, look what the winners get:  chocolate covered bacon!!  


It was so cold that..........@Quick13 had to tweet with one glove on.....



The United Way Winner is........Just Judy Judy Judy!!!


and that Jason guy on Channel 9 probably had something to do with it!! 

@JustJudyBlog won an iPad for all that United Way tweeting!!




Princess Kay meets...........Princess Kay!


Shareology had waited her whole life for the above photo opp; Princess Kay was a delight and appeared not to be permanently scared by the photo request.   Shareology was on her very best behavior!!

Small Business Gets Social: SMBMSP #28 July 24, 2010

Deluxe Corporation invited Social Media Breakfast Minneapolis St. Paul back to their glorious campus: (that’s what a real lawn looks like folks!) for #28:  Small Business Gets Social!  

Facebook, Twitter, Blogging are the foundation for Social Media tactics.  Metro IBA got mentioned at least twice for the superb work they do with small business.  Shareology also loved the “I Hate Coupons!” cry from retailers on the panel.  Newsletter and email blasts used in conjunction with social media worked well.  Some folks love Twitter, some love Facebook — figure out which works best with your customer base and go with it.  Zack Steven got props for his Twitter classes.  And finally, another illustration of show up where your audience is:  Julie Warner mentioned she’s had success with Craig’s List.  Her audience is there looking for appliance deals and Julie reminds them she has appliance deals!   


Our panel moderator BEFORE the competition intensified....

Ya suppose Rick and Mykl had to mow this before #28?

SMBMSP #27: Sports, Social Media and Shareology! June 19, 2010

In the interest of full disclosure:  Shareology’s idea of a sport is the Triple Crown.  Given that, it was way past time to learn more about sports and social media.  Off Shareology went to Target Center in downtown Minneapolis for Social Media Breakfast Minneapolis St. Paul #27.   

SMBMSP 27:  a great sports panel on how they use social media for their organizations, teams, fans, and more. Here’s the lineup:   

  • Candice Wiggins of the Minnesota Lynx (@CandiceWiggins)
  • Gregg Litman from WCCO (@GRLitman)
  • Matt Teske from the St. Paul Saints (@StPaulSaints)
  • Scott Spiridigliozzi from the Minnesota Timberwolves (@Liozzi)
  • Austin Stair Calhoun from the UM Tucker Center (@austinstair)

Gregg Litman shared this bit of wisdom (that so many politicians have not learned) “Treat all mikes like they’re open…”   

Actually, to pull this wisdom into social media:  Treat all social  media (twitter, blogs, google, everything…) like it is live…….and forever!   




Sarah Smiles!

Social Media Breakfast #26: Gardening at the State Fair (bacon included!) May 26, 2010

 Shareology attended her 12th Social Media Breakfast Minneapolis St. Paul event, and her second at the State Fair grounds.  (Hint:  parking is impossibly lovely in non-August time periods!)   This month’s topic was all things garden related…  

SMBMSP 26 – Urban & Organic Gardening 

Social Media Breakfast met May 21 at the beautiful Progress Center building on the historic Minnesota State Fairgrounds, where the topic was how organic gardeners and farmers use Social Media to promote their goods and grow their businesses. Included were a mini Farmer’s Market and displays from vendors, as well as a knowledgeable panel of professional growers and gardeners. 


Images of the morning: 

Social Media Breakfast returns to the State Fair!
