Geeky Weekend

Pinterest helped me Geek out Dad’s Day

Retro handset for Smartphone

I hope all the Geeky Dad’s out there enjoyed their day yesterday! We celebrated here quietly since all of our kids are off on an adventure. I purchased this as a gag but when my husband opened it and discovered that it actually works great  he decided it was one of his best gifts ever. Maybe not the best gift but close to it. It really enhances the clarity of the call, allows access to phone features via a button on the inside of the handset and can be used with a tablet when making Skype calls. It is made of silicone so it is quite comfortable to hold. Here is a link to the product sold by Sharpen Image via my pin on Pinterest

It’s in The Cloud 

I’ve been asked where listeners can download the new Social Geek song that we play for our opening and GeekItOut segment. Skyler Fox did a fantastic job putting together a 30 second intro for us and it is becoming popular. I’m sure it will soon be a favorite ring tone for many! Skyler uploaded the song to SoundCloud for easy download and sharing http://bit.ly/JVqz07  SocialCloud is a great site that allows you to capture audio and upload to their site, making it accessible for others to download. You can connect with Skyler on LinkedIn but he is best known as @BeefyFunk on Twitter.

Digital Identity

You may not want to throw away those paper business cards but you should consider setting up your digital profile. AK Stout shared this link on Social Geek Radio months ago but I finally decided to GeekItOut and set up my own profile. Follr.com allows you to set up one address for all your digital profiles. Are you a LinkedIn member, Pin to Pinterest, Tweet and/or have a blog? If so, you can link them all to your own Follr account! There is also a tab allowing documents to be uploaded. My eBook on Social Technology Marketing Strategies for Franchising uploaded in a few short minutes.

Out with the Old in with the New

I designed a new Website this weekend for Deb Evans Consulting. You will find this post on the site. For now I will continue with this blog and I hope you will  visit the new site www.debevansconsulting.com and consider following. As always, I’m open to suggestions to improve the content and sharing!

FranCamp Follow Up

We did it! We held the first FranCamp in Nashville last weekend and it was a success! There are so many things that I learned even as one of the presenters.  I promise to share everything in my book: Franchising Goes Social: Franchise Leadership As A Social Geek!

For now, I have the video below that I recorded this morning on UStream with my key take-aways.

Below are some important links to presentations, tweets, and videos that you missed.

Don’t forget to take the survey (http://fransocialcamp.com/where-is-the-next-francamp/) and vote for the next city that FranCamp travels to.

Sure you can watch the videos from FranCamp. You can view all the presentations and glean lots of great content from the tweets. But in reality you are missing the great discussions and networking from a group of like minded individuals.

Thomas Scott opened the day explaining that the FranCamp committee put the event together so that we could “give the recipe away and provide tactics and strategies that can be used immediately!” A bond was formed and new friendships and business relationships were made.

Please join our circle and register for the next FranCamp, volunteer to be a speaker or sponsor!
