It's Embarrassing to Ask, but…

Vote for me. Nope. I’m not Paris Hilton. I mean it.  It’s not about politics, it’s about the panel Social Media Club and I have proposed for SXSW Interactive  next March.
SXSW picks its agenda via an interactive panel picker and my suggestion, "Fire Your PR Firm and Brand it Yourself" made the cut to the panel picker.  But there are 1200 suggestions, and in order to get picked you have to be voted up.

If you have never been to SXSW, it’s a big music, film and interactive conference in Austin. One reason I want to go is I’m on the advisory board for Social Media Club, which has just adopted a new program with four really exciting new projects around critical areas for the ongoing adoption of social media:

1)Media Literacy
2)Social Media Champions
3)Best Practices

The panel I’ve proposed, despite its sexy name, which is a marketing tool, will be about sharing best practices, and will have a PR person and a corporate social media person, in addition to a branding expert. The goal is to help jump start the sharing of best practices around social media. Our panel is for geeks who have built something wonderful and don’t know quite how to get it into the market. The traditional way to do this is through PR, hence my sexy title.

PR itself has changed through social media, and that’s the crux of the best practices.

Anyway, it will only take a minute to vote here and leave a comment.

Do it for Social Media Club if not for me :-)
