I met Jason Keath last year when he tapped me as a speaker and panel moderator at Charlotte WordCamp. I've stayed in touch with him since then, including keeping up with his pioneering career as the Social Media Director for Charlotte-based Heels.com. In this video, Jason shares his insight and tips for anyone looking for a job in the rapidly expanding social media industry. The information he shares is also helpful to any Indie who wishes to launch a new business as an Internet marketing and social media consultant.
Jason will be the guest speaker at the Indie Business Breakfast in Charlotte, North Carolina, on April 11, 2009 at the Earth Fare Natural food Store. For details and to register, click here. You can connect with Jason online at his website and on Twitter.
Question: Do you consider social media to be a bona fide “industry” as Jason indicates? Why or why not?
