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!

The Wire…the new age of interactive news & the future of Mobile Marketing. February 19, 2010

Shareology attended the Executive Marketing Guild February 19, where Dan Monfre, New Media Sales Manager at WCCO-TV shared exciting inside scoop of the soon to be launched future of interactive news: The Wire. This new site will primarily focus on local news in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, with a frosting of national  news.  Dan  also took out his crystal ball and shared some of the  exciting future aspects of mobile marketing.    Sierra Bravo worked in conjunction with Channel 4 TV personnel to create this interactive news web and mobile site.  Almost two years in the making, launch date is early March, 2010: you’ve  been warned!!
