First, my apologies for the lag in time between updates. My goals for 2011 have changed slightly and thus, I have been concentrating on achieving them. Lisa Sullivan PR continues to exist but at a much less focused capacity.
Lisa Sullivan PR was formed out of a need to continue to hone my skills in the web 2.0 / social media marketing space while providing services to that end for various clients. Upon being laid off in March of 2009 and while looking for the perfect full-time opportunity, I began to serve more clients and I even took on a full-time contract job with Media Two Interactive as well. While I have enjoyed working with individual clients as well as on a contract basis, I quickly realized that I prefer working with just one team of individuals who aspire to be successful with their own web 2.0 marketing efforts. As such, my search continues.
While I continue working with Jean Schnaak, designer of The Loving Heart Collection, and Golf For Geniuses (dot) com on each of their social media strategies, I have spent much of the last six weeks ramping up my job search as a web 2.0 marketing strategist / community relations manager for a company or nonprofit organization in need of my expertise. Between forwarding my resume through various contacts I currently have, networking to meet new ones, meeting with a recruiter, and volunteering my skills for such events as The NHL All Star Game and Ignite Durham, I have focused less on gaining additional clients and more on gainful employment.
In the coming weeks, I will be posting about specific opportunities that I have had / will have to share my expertise with my local community. Recently, I spoke at the Raleigh Entrepreneur’s Organization on the topic of “Community Building One Tweet At a Time” and plan to write a brief recap of that event here. Additionally, in the month of March, I will again be instructing a four-week workshop entitled, “A Hands-On Approach to Social Media” through the Johnston Community College Small Business Center. Also in the works, is a separate workshop detailing best practices on how to use video and images to market your business. More info to come!
My focus is finding gainful employment and while doing so, I plan to continue to provide workshops and/or present in the always changing arena of web 2.0 marketing as requested.
