Social Media Branding in the Age of Obama (Eric Hamilton)

There are going to be over 50 tremendous workshops at the 32nd annual BDPA Technology Conference in Philadelphia on July 28-31, 2010. One of those workshops is being presented by Involver client services manager Eric Hamilton.  His workshop is entitled Social Media Branding in the Age of Obama.   The workshop is scheduled for Friday, July 30th at 1:30 PM.

Eric Hamilton is an internet and web development veteran with over 20 years of technology work experience.  Currently, Eric works for Involver which is a social media technology company. Involver’s technology powers over 70,000 Facebook fan pages and over 130 million Facebook fan experiences.

Eric is the author of “Social Media Branding in the Age of Obama”. This book is a social media guide which gives social media strategies for small businesses and personal development.

Eric's workshop is inspired by the 2008 presidential campaign when Barack Obama made history by not only becoming the United States' first African American President, but by using social media technology to get elected. Never has a presidential candidate used the internet and social media so effectively. President Barack Obama used social media web sites such as Facebook, LinkedIN, Twitter, Myspace, Blogger, BlogTalk Radio, YouTube and other web sites as a cohesive, collective social juggernaut. Never in the history of human civilization has the common man been able to control his media perception and catapult himself on to the big stage in this manner.

The agenda for Eric's workshop is as follows:

I plan on attending this workshop! How about you? Anyhow, Eric is available to answer any questions you might have in advance of the actual workshop in Philadelphia. What would you like to ask him?
