Ben Blakesley, Senior Manager of Global Social Media | Reebok

So many people claim to be social media experts, but Lynette is the real deal. Her knowledge and experience goes beyond the social channels and marries marketing principles with social techniques and tools in a way that helps businesses grow. When I was organizing the social media conference Community Manager Recharge, I knew I wanted to have a session on Google+ and I also knew there is no one I’d rather have present on the topic than Lynette. But even beyond the amazing business mind and insightful marketing expert, Lynette is truly a generous and wonderful person.

Sample Talks (5)

The Myth of the Overnight Success: How to Build an Iceberg in 25 Years or Less

NOTE: This is the primary talk that Lynette books. This presentation can be customized to fit a keynote, session talk or workshop. Her seven principles of entrepreneurship - Predicament, Perception, Perseverance, People, Passion, Prosperity and Progress - can be presented in part or as a cohesive session. There is a myth in the online space about lucky people that become an “overnight success” out of nowhere. It’s bunk. Or more specifically, an iceberg. However you look at it, it takes a lot more than showing up to the party to achieve success. Lynette Young has been a technology and marketing professional for 25 years, one of the earliest bloggers and podcasters, and now a huge Google+ fan. Find out how it took her so long to become an “overnight success” – including how to dig deep and find your own version of instant stardom. Through this talk Lynette will share stories and insights from her quarter-decade long career from corporate technology to entrepreneurship – and what you can pull from your own past to create future success.

Google+ for YOUR Business

NOTE: Lynette is no longer taking bookings for this type of talk. Your day is busy. Your time is limited. Your budget is even smaller. Come “Hangout” with Lynette to find real actionable ways to work Google+ into your business. You will discover why Google+ isn’t just a social network, but a vital piece of online digital publishing and marketing to get you noticed FAST.

Embracing the Negative

Learning how to not just contain the damage or ignore it, but actively solicit the conversation-starters into repairing your image. Don’t want to get into the space because you are afraid of negative conversations about your brand? Guess what? It’s happening if you are there or not.

Beyond Text: Bringing Multimedia Immersion to Your Message

While some may say ‘print is dead’, print on the web (or your iPhone) is alive and well. YouTube is one of the world’s most popular web destination for a reason. Learn to reach beyond the the ‘printed word’ and draw your clients into a multimedia experience that will position you as the go-to source in your industry.

Marketing Where The Money Is

Audience identification hinges on not only finding the right people to listen to, but the right people to sell to. By focusing your online efforts in the most profitable places, you can gain fans and customers while minimizing your time and cost.
