Building + Accelerating Your Brand Online

Bestselling author and relationship expert Charles J. Orlando walked away from a traditional publishing deal and chose to leverage his 17 years of marketing experience to self-publish and self-promote. With a limited budget and zero advertising, Charles turned to Social Media and has not only created and maintained a solid brand on Facebook - with over 1.6M "Likes" to-date with a 65% monthly return rate to his page - he's sold thousands of books (with both appearing in the Top 25 on Amazon), is filming TV talk show pilots as host, is tapped regularly by the media as an expert, and his writing has been optioned for a feature film.

From this engaging, fast-paced discussion, you'll walk away knowing:

  • The secrets behind creating, building and maintaining your brand using Social Media on less than $100/month
  • The difference between Marketing Strategy and Social Media Strategy
  • Why failing using Social Media isn't to be avoided
  • How to write compelling content that creates and drives the only thing that matters: ENGAGEMENT

Please note the location change for this month's meeting:
Art Center of Corpus Christi
100 N. Shoreline Blvd.
