Book Download — Super Networking at Events and Tradeshows

April 23rd, 2014 COMMENTS

Super-Networking_lowresFair Warning — This is a brazen plug for a free book about trade shows and social media. And a darn good one too.

A couple of months ago, Tim Patterson, otherwise known as The Tradeshow Guy, wrote a 90 page e-book titled, Super Networking at Tradeshows and Events Using Social Media. He had copies printed and gave them away to friends, industry colleagues, and at trade shows. Classic Exhibits was a sponsor for both the book and the printing.

Anyone who follows Tim knows that he researches and blogs relentlessly about Social Media as an effective tool for trade shows and events. You can read his posts at www.tradeshowguyblog.com. He’s my dude whenever I have questions about this topic.

Now you can get your copy for FREE! It’s a click away without any PITA registering or email address harvesting.

Super Networking ebook (Direct PDF link)

Whether you are a beginner, a dabbler, or an expert, Tim’s book is an outstanding introduction to this must have skill set in today’s business climate. You don’t have to be an expert in Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, QR codes, etc. But you do need to understand the basics.

Sample Chapters:

  • Chapter 4:  Creating a Community
  • Chapter 7:  Eye on Video
  • Chapter 10:  Blogging — Your Home Base
  • Chapter 12:  (Almost) Everything Else

Tim is working on an expanded version, complete with fancy schmancy graphics and illustrations. That version will cost you, so don’t wait. Get the low rent version with all information but without the upscale, midtown price.

I would love to hear your thoughts. And Tim would welcome your comments on his blog. Enjoy!

Measuring the Impact of Social Media Marketing: Free Webinar

May 21st, 2013 COMMENTS

Measuring Social Media Webinar

MEASURING SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING

“Social Media Metrics: What To Measure And Why” will be the subject of a free webinar on Wednesday, May 22. It is intended to give business leaders perspective on the differences between social media marketing and traditional advertising approaches, and to provide them with an understanding of what data should be driving their analysis of the success of their efforts.

Tim Patterson, vice-president of Communication Steroids / Communication One Exhibits, says the information is timely and relevant. “We recently offered this presentation to a group of public relations professionals and got great feedback.”

The webinar will focus on the necessity of re-defining the importance of ROI in a socially connected world; and how results of marketing efforts can be quantified.

Roger Pike, a co-presenter also with Communication Steroids/ Communication One Exhibits says hard numbers are out there. “Nobody wants to invest time, money, and resources into a significant social media campaign unless they can get a handle on what that investment returns. There are tools to measure that return; with concrete numbers.”

The webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, May 22 at 10 am Pacific Time. Sign up is free at http://tinyurl.com/socmedanalytics. While the webinar is free, we do ask for some basic contact information to attend.

Be Our Sweetie. Win an iPad Kiosk from Classic Exhibits.

Win a MOD-1314

Win a MOD-1314 iPad Kiosk for Easter

The Easter Bunny told us to create an iPad Kiosk contest. So we did . . . Frankly, no one at Classic had the guts to tell the Easter Bunny, “No.”

We’ll make this easy. Go to the Classic Exhibits Facebook page, do the obligatory “Like” (which tells us you’re sweet on us). Then on the Easter Bunny Contest post, share what is your favorite Easter candy and why. You are not allowed to choose Peeps. Peeps are gross. Any other candy is fine.

On Monday, April 1, the day after Easter, we’ll choose a winner from all the entries. No, this is not an April Fool’s Joke. The calendar just worked out that way.

All the entries will go into a hollow chocolate bunny, and we’ll select a winner for the MOD-1314. If your entry is particularly creative, you “may” get an extra entry. Don’t like those rules? Complain to the Easter Bunny.

For the Classic Facebook Page, CLICK HERE.  And be our sweetie!

The Classic Exhibits Facebook Page

January 30th, 2013 COMMENTS

You’re a regular reader of Classic’s Trade Show Tales blog, and you joined the Classic Distributor Network on LinkedIn. But, you’re still not getting enough “Classic Time.” Well, who can blame you. Tune into Facebook. The Classic Facebook page shows a more relaxed view of Classic Exhibits and Classic Rentals.

On Classic’s Facebook page, you’ll see photos of Classic employees working hard, pictures in our facility, and Kevin sitting around in meetings. Compromising photos of Kevin are a specialty since he doesn’t have a Facebook account so he never sees them. Sweet!

Be a Classic Facebook regular. Heck, you’re on your Facebook page at this very moment. Please like us. It’s embarrassing when we beg.
