For all my fellow Houstonians and design lovers, I will be speaking on a panel this coming Wednesday, October 16th at 2 pm as part of the Fall Market Afternoon Keynote at the Decorative Center Houston. The panel will be moderated by social media maven, Leslie Carothers, and will focus on how you can harness the power of social media to propel your business. The panel will also feature Sarah Brooks Eilers of Lucas/Eilers Design Associates, Lauren Haskett of Lauren Haskett Fine Design and Material Girls, Meg Lonergan of LeSueur Interiors, and Paloma Contreras of La Dolce Vita blog and Paloma Contreras Design.
Truthfully, I did things backwards and started a blog that eventually led to a business. I know that a lot of people have a business and want to increase their exposure or reach, so they then decide to delve in to social media. Starting a social media presence can seem daunting at first- What platforms should you explore, what type of posts do people respond best to, how often to engage your audience, etc. We will attempt to answer these questions and share what has worked for each of us, at different phases in our careers.
If you live near Houston, I hope you'll come!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
