Want to build a stronger social media presence and learn how to better engage your customers to drive more demand?

The Social Media Rally Station™ from Channel Maven Consulting will be back again this year at the OPN Lounge at OPN Central @ OpenWorld, armed with professional photographer and marketing consultants who will give you a comprehensive evaluation of your current social media clout. Using face-to-face stops, Channel Maven advisors will set you up with professional photos and online engagement best practices for your platform profiles. You will also learn how to best-format + utilize the latest social platforms to get your solutions out to a broader market. Reserve your one-on-one fifteen minute free consultation now!


Here’s how it works:

  1. Check in with a Rally Coordinator who will assess your needs and move you to the appropriate station;
  2. Take part in the photo station where you’ll receive a headshot to use on your social media platforms, your business website, or for articles and posts about your company;
  3. Reveal to your Consultant how you’re using social media and he/she will suggest ways to optimize your online presence. For those of you who are more familiar with the social media space, Consultants will dive deeper into YouTube, Vine, vimeo, Pinterest, etc;
  4. That all said, keep in mind this is a custom engagement so ultimately YOU decide how you want to focus your time.
Social Media Rally Station™ will take place in the OPN Lounge at the below times during the week of Oracle OpenWorld. Please wear professional attire from the waist up for your headshot, and bring log-in credentials for your existing social platforms.

What’s up, partners?

You’re not exhausted yet, are you? No way. There’s still half a conference’s worth of content for you to take advantage of. Here’s what’s tickling our fancy for Tuesday...

Partner sessions. There are some money content sessions happening @ Marriott Marquis, including Database 12C, Engineered Systems and Applications User Experience in the Cloud.

Test Fest. Exams for OPN Specialist Certifications are available throughout the week - also @ Marriot Marquis. We’ll be there tomorrow. Come by, say hello, and we’ll see what you’re really made of.

Social Media Rally Station. Can you use a hashtag? Know how to endorse a colleague on LinkedIn? Have any idea what a Pinboard is? If you answer “No,” to any of those, head over to the OPN Lounge tomorrow. The Rally Station pit crew will set you up with everything you need—including a pro headshot for all of your profiles.

Stay strong!
