The kickoff starts today with Social Media Week Chicago, and what better way to start off the week than an event at Rockit Bar & Grill in Chicago. Thanks to Billy Dec (CEO of Rockit Ranch Productions) I’m now able to attend the event. I had forgotten to RSVP to the event when I created my Social Media Week calendar, and sent him a tweet to see if I could get in last minute. He quickly responded on whom to email & RSVP to, and I received the email today letting me know I’m on the list for this evening!
This is what Social Media is about people! Businesses need to follow Billy Dec’s lead, and Business owners should have a hand as much as they possibly can in the social media entity of their business. After all, it’s the fact that he responded to my tweet in a timely manner, not even that he got me into the event (that’s a plus). Whether he would have said: it’s impossible because we’re going to be over fire-code, or I’m sorry I just can’t do it (I tell all my clients it’s about responding to your fans, followers, haters, etc, not about what you can do or what they say, but HOW you respond)
