Beast Tamer @

Your Social University

Consulting, Training, Social Media Management

“Tame the social media beast and grow your business, sales and influence. “

My name is Caryn and I’ve been in sales and marketing a long time. I studied at university of Alabama worked retail sales for almost 15 years before moving along to corporate America. I worked in sales for a training and consulting company for almost 10 years ( I started very young. Only 7) before deciding I could do it on my own.

.

My timing was perfect. I started my own business and BAM! .he recession hit. I found myself with more time than money and no advertising budget at all. I started using LinkedIn to drum up business and low and behold…it worked! And even better….it worked for FREE That’s when Caryn got to test Mark Twain’s saying "It's not the size of the dog in the fight. It's the size of the fight in the dog."

“The industry isn’t the same as it used to be. The good old days meant that as a speaker all you needed was a phone and a rolodex. Those days are gone. You can’t just keep up. You have to stay one step ahead. Here’s another of her favorite quotes: “Do or do not. There is no try.” – Yoda . There are some great technological advances, that if embraced can actually save time, energy and money.

Maximizing Facebook for Business

January 19         2:00pm - 4:00pm

Art Town  7611 1st Avenue North 

$30


Probably the biggest bottleneck for artists in business is pricing. There are some very good reasons for this - (1) art falls in the category of want and not need (2) value is perceived and not hard and (3) it's a small market with incredible competition. It would behoove - (there's a pricey word. Rare. When was the last time you saw it used?) - behoove the artist to do a little reading about how to think about money. I recommend Dollars and Sense.

Dan Areily does a nice job explaining how we make decisions about not just spending money but how we spend money and why. This is helpful to know when pricing. He also introduces the concept of relativity in making expenditures. Since spending money on art is very personal and subjective, understanding the intersection and synergy of the details that go through the mind is essential in pricing. It's written in easy English and only about 150 pages. Relatively painless and priced for free at the library or $27.00 in bookstores, this is a sound expenditure.
