#Shift is coming to #GreenvilleNC


Shift is a free conference that is coming to Greenville in May of this year. It is designed to give local businesses information on Social Media and how to use it for their businesses. I'm proud to say that I am doing my part by joining with other Eastern, NC businesses to sponsor this event.

You may be asking yourself why a Tupperware Consultant, who has a very small business, would want to sponsor an event like this. Here's why: Social Media Works. The answer is simple. As someone who markets their business on Twitter, Facebook and more recently, Tumblr, I've seen social media and social networking sites work for me.

Through Twitter, I've met people from all over the country, and while I may not ever meet them in person, or go into their homes to do a Tupperware demonstration, I have sold them Tupperware. I've met people at Tweetups that have purchased Tupperware... even hosted their own catalog party. One of my recruited consultants is someone that I met through Twitter. In other words, a little time on the Internet, and a few tweets and Facebook posts have made me money.

I'm excited about the Shift Conference. If you are a local business that wants to learn how you can use Social Media to work for you, Shift is the place to be. May 27 and 28, 2010 at the Greenville Convention Center. Until the event, learn more on the City Shift website, and follow @CityShift on Twitter. You can also become a fan on Facebook.

Come out and learn... and spend my birthday with me :)
