Last month, Hashtagitude had the honor of hosting four aspiring entrepreneurs through the City and County of Denver’s Office of Economic Development (OED) Program, Operation Perfect Beginnings. During the two weeks with our team, the four high school students gained valuable insights into how to run an effective business, the in’s and out’s of how to pitch a business to gain funding, and how to serve clients with the highest level of customer service. Don’t just take my word for it–here’s what each of the students had to say about their time with us:
I have followed some so-called social media experts for a period of time, hopeful that they would lead me towards more social media proficiency; however, I become disappointed when I watch their social media presences closely and see that they, in fact, do not walk the walk. How can you go around social media, preaching that you care and that you engage with all your followers, when the only people you talk with are your ‘friends’?
About a month or so ago, I came across another frustrated professional in the social media space name Jason “Jay” Vigilione on Twitter, and together, we realized that we have a lot in common when it comes to our frustrations in the social media marketing space. Too many talking heads, we said!
Hence why we decided to launch our podcast, Spotlight: Social Marketing Gone Bad.
As co-hosts, we banter back and forth about current and relevant social media topics, such as other marketers fussing over terminology (instead of focusing on what’s important!) and the hype over certain new platforms.
We launch episodes every Thursday and so far have Episode 0 and 1 out! Hope to have you all tune in on iTunes or Stitcher Radio soon. Subscribe and rate our podcast, too! If you have any suggestions for future topics, be sure to submit via our topic submission form.
