Today I have a picture of the whiteboard from Social Media Mastermind Orange County. I also have a rare photo of me. I am usually behind the camera.

This was an informative meet as usual.
Some of the highlights

  • LinkedIn’s new customer relationship management system and how it will be a game changer for sales employees. This will allow people to take their client base with them when they change jobs. It is like Google authorship for sales people and other professionals.
  • Finding influential bloggers with Ecairn and radiant6
  • Tracking twitter followers with Nutshell and Twitter counter as well as getting more twitter followers with Twiends.com

SMMOC, Lunch with John Chow and a New Website Name

Yesterday Saturday the 19th was an interesting day of socializing. I usually don’t have time to go out with friends and just hang out. However, since I did not have any clients to see or dogs staying with me I was free to visit. I was kind of working. I was learning about online media and the internet industry from my friends. I also had many chances to share the specialized knowledge I have about the world of online.

The morning stared with a trip the SMMOC. That stands for Social Media Masterminds Orange County. I left the house after a quicker than usual trip to my online Google plus Dogs community. After approving posts, removing spam and noncomplying posts it was off to see my friends as SMMOC. There are always a lot of interesting people at SMMOC. While at the meeting I had the opportunity to share my adventures on Google+. Do you think I could be a Google+ consultant?

Here are the notes for the Saturday meeting minus my Google Plus info. I have a hard time talking and writing at the same time.

After lunch I managed to get home to take care of the Google community and then attended dinner with a new friend I met at TimeOC meet up and who was also at the SMMOC meeting earlier in the day. The dinner was also a four month puppy reunion of the household puppy with its siblings and cousins.
