Where Are They Now: Stephanie Nelson, Ignite Charlotte 2
Ignite Charlotte was graced with the presence of Stephanie Nelson during Ignite Charlotte 2, where she gave the ever-pertinent talk, “Personal Branding: Online vs. Offline“. With studies talking about consumer behavior (and professional behavior, for that matter) on social networks and face-to-face interaction, Stephanie informed the crowd by providing the best tips for each environment.
When she spoke at Ignite Charlotte 2, she was doing social media marketing for small businesses at Better Web People. In December 2011, she jumped into the entrepreneur world and started her own practice, SBN Marketing, and plans to continue assisting small businesses in the convoluted worlds of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, for hyperlocal SEO activities.
“My personal brand took off at Ignite Charlotte 2,” Stephanie told us. Truth be told, when Ignite Charlotte 2 finally came around, the day did not start out well for her. She came to the Neighborhood Theatre with a shoe duct-taped together, and to make matters worse, as it sometimes happens at live events, technical issues arose with her presentation.
But-might we add- she finished her entire presentation while barely missing a step. She also got one of the longest applause lines too!
“I’m still recognized around Charlotte and at networking events.” Stephanie added.
We’re are thrilled that Ignite Charlotte 2 helped boost your personal brand, Stephanie. And thank you for adding to the Ignite Charlotte tradition. Good luck with SBN Marketing!
