Social Media Coaching

CoachesWhat’s It About

A successful component of Social Media Camp is one-on-one coaching. Essentially, we pair social media professionals with novice users to ensure they get the most out of their Social Media Camp experience. Attendees of Social Media Camp sign up on a first-come, first-serve basis. There is no extra charge.

The sign up form is at the bottom of this page.

Each coach develops a unique program, which may include the following elements:

  • Possibly a meeting prior to SMCamp – even a week or two in advance, perhaps in your local area if you are coming from another city.
  • Meeting as a group on Thursday, May 1st, right after the group orientation and registration.
  • On May 2nd and 3rd, meet as needed, in smaller groups or one-on-one (some coaches offer to answer texts or tweets from people in their group)
  • Meet afterwards, back in their local area, for a follow-up.
  • One-on-one follow-ups.

Coaches help with specific questions, assist with signing up and configuring social accounts, help direct people to sessions that they feel will be of particular interest, and otherwise be available as a guide for the event.
