Online Hero "Find Your Social Media Power"

None of us have a lot of time to harmonize our online efforts in self promotion. This Introduction to Social Media is a 2 hour workshop focusing on integrating your online content for smooth and time saving presentations offered to the world.

Whether you're a visual artist or musician or have products or services to sell of any kind, the point of it all is to continually engage your audience and keep them looking your way. We offer up content, whether it's yours or someone else's and eventually they trust you in your area of expertise because you've fully shown them who you are.

From Artist To Social Media Consultant: Who is Sorg?

From Artist To Social Media Consultant: Who is Sorg?

A brief word about my credentials seems appropriate here. I'm an artist but I'm also a marketing fanatic. How did this come about?

As an artist, I quickly learned to build an audience. I've owned a couple art galleries and promoted hundreds of art shows for my own work as well as the work of others. I realized that all the work put in needs to be seen to be appreciated–otherwise, we're wasting our time.

• Co-founded NadaDada Motel. In its 5th year, this art-in-motel-rooms exhibition has been featured in countless articles and blog stories, as well as a feature story in the New York Times and also on the San Francisco Museum of Art's blog.
• Lives in public display windows to blog about it and engage a daily audience
• At one time, managed over 30 fanpages with thousands of fans
• Blogged a live telethon for the SPCA and saw a 300% gain in viewership thru integrated social media promotion
• Created promotional videos and maintained a Facebook fanpage for Voters For Sensible Growth

I've taught art to at-risk youth. I've taught digital photography and editing at the Nevada Museum of Art. I taught Flash animation at Truckee Meadows Community College and I've consulted businesses and private individuals with social media solutions.

Social Media hasn't replace advertising yet but has merged the profession with public relations with a do-it-yourself twist. We must maintain our presence and continue to present relevant and captivating content for our friends and fans. All eyes on us!

The NYT article by Patricia Leigh Brown, with photos Jim Wilson. NadaDada Motel, the art event I co-founded has had over 300 creatives involved so far and was started in June of 2007. It's been quite a job since its inception and I'm proud of all the design and promotional work I've put into it. I curated an exhibition featuring our artists for 2 years in a Las Vegas museum and that's what got the attention of the Times reporter. How could I not be proud?
