Defining Yourself through your Online Presence

Twitter advertising

Welcome to the New Media Drivers License. Some things to think about this week. Doing participation by commenting on this blog, and sharing two resources. Also, be sure to connect with your teachers on social networks. You can find me at Derek Mehraban on Linkedin. You can also follow my @mehraban Twitter and my company Twitter for Ingenex Digital Marketing.

Slide 2: Big Idea

The big idea of my campaign is that women drink Gatorade too! Within the campaign, my main promotions are using our Gatorade products toward female athletics, healthy work-outs and staying fit. We also want consumers to believe Gatorade has a great effect with the price you are paying for Gatorade. 

Election Day Twitter Coverage: Okay, I am Hooked!

Tuesday, November 7th will go down in my book as one of the most electrifying nights to watch Election Day coverage and comparing activity on social and traditional media.  I don’t consider myself a super engaged political activist.  I have my opinions and usually keep them more private, but I absolutely loved the raw, less censored sentiment of the tweets posted during the night.

Hashtags and Tracking Social Media

HashTags are a great way to see what is up in the social media world. Do you know where the #hashtag came from?

Savvy Social Media

Sitting in class last week, my eyes were opened to all new types of social media. My thoughts changed from knowing about each social media site to actually learning how to use each site affectively. Types are changing and people have an easy way to voice their opinions in these outlets.
