Social Media Expert and New York Times Best-Selling Author Chris Brogan Coming to Cape Cod

Written by: Leslie Fishlock // September 30th, 2009 // News

We are so excited to announce that Chris Brogan, social media expert and best-selling author, and all-around nice guy, will be coming to town for an exclusive book signing and social media event! And we could not be more excited! The event is a fundraiser for Geek Girl Camp’s programs for women in need and transition, specifically tied to educational scholarships, computer training, providing laptops and other events and initiatives.

Chris Brogan, co-author of the New York Times best-seller, Trust Agents, will be in Hyannis, Cape Cod, MA on October 27th from 5-7pm to sign his new book as well as interact with local business people, techies and entrepreneurs on how to tap into the growing power of social media networks to build their brand’s influence, reputation and profits.

Brogan is president of New Marketing Labs, a new media marketing agency, and home of the Inbound Marketing Summit conferences and Inbound Marketing Bootcamp educational events. He works with large and mid-sized companies to improve online business communications like marketing and PR through the use of social software, community platforms, and other emerging web and mobile technologies.

In his new book, co-authored with Julien Smith, Brogan says that “social networks and personal connections have far more influence on consumers than your marketing messages ever will – unless your business knows how to harness them. In Trust Agents, we show you how to tap into the power of these networks to build your brand’s influence, reputation and profits.”

Brogan explains that “trust agents aren’t necessarily marketers or salespeople; they’re digitally savvy people who use the Web to humanize businesses using transparency, honesty, and genuine relationships. As a result, they wield enough online influence to build up or bring down a business’s reputation. This book will show you how to build profitable relationships with trust agents, or become one yourself.”

Tickets for the event are $50 and can be purchased online here. Tickets will be available at the event for $60. All purchases include the Trust Agents book and entrance to this exclusive event benefiting programs for Geek Girl Camp such as educational scholarships for women in need and computer training. Contact Leslie at Geek Girl Camp with any questions about tickets, press inquiries or sponsorship for this event.

We thank Venture Hyannis and the Cape Cod Technology Council for their support and sponsorship for this event as well as for support for Geek Girl Camp throughout the year.
