Should your company have a formal social media training program?

Does your company have a formal training process for employees before they’re allowed to blog, tweet or post other social media content on behalf of the company?

No – 70.66%
Yes – 18.56%
Not applicable – 10.78%

The data from this week’s poll question is at the same time both surprising and unsurprising. Formal training has always been something that some companies embrace and others ignore. And when it comes to social media, that adage appears to hold.

Summer Conference: Kicking Off a New AdFed Year!

Just coming out of what has to be one of the most energizing AdFed Gainesville annual retreats I have ever participated in, we went this weekend to the Fourth District AAF Summer Conference to discover that the excitement is shared all district wide!

The Ocala Advertising Federation, recently renamed the North Central Florida Advertising Federation, put together a dynamic and fun to the hilt summer conference (Kudos to Mara Rodriguez, John Sotomayor and all the Ocala club for a fantastic job!) that was bursting at the seams with enthusiasm and high ambitious plans.
At the Presidents’ Council meeting, the ADDY, Programs and the Memberships workshops, and the Board of Directors Meeting, the District asked for our input (which was eagerly and sometimes rambunctiously given) and filled us in on all the great new initiatives to be rolled out this year to move our Fourth District of the American Advertising Federation forward and upward, and increase the value of your membership.

The Advertising Federation of Gainesville contingent to the conference (Jim and Jeannette Baer and myself) came back with a pile of notes and ideas to hit the ground running. You will soon be hearing of some cool new things we are cooking!
