We work with the best event partners. Not only do we get to represent some incredibly talented people and organizations that are pushing creative, business and social boundaries with fantastic results, but our clients are also very generous in expressing their appreciation for our services.
Below is a testimonial from Peter O.E. Bekker (Director of The New York Press Club) that was published in their newsletter about Served Fresh Media’s coverage of their annual Journalism Conference where we interviewed some of the most talented and respected journalists in news media and provided real-time social media coverage. We look forward to seeing the great programs and events they have coming up in 2011/2012.
NY Press Club Testimonial:
Have Tweets, Will Twavel Travel: Outsourcing Coverage For Social Media
The offer from Served Fresh Media came out of the blue. “We specialize in social media. Let us cover your journalism conference.”
With no social media plans of our own finalized, the go-ahead was given just days before the event. The upshot was a happy riot of text and video reportage on Twitter and YouTube as the Served Fresh Media crew bounded from breakout to breakout, covering the New York Press Club Foundation’s 18th annual Conference on Journalism at NYU.
Served Fresh founder, Charlie Oliver, has identified a niche to help kick-start social media participation by organizations that have not yet formalized their own programs or who are happy to outsource the work.
“We provide social media PR before the event, social media reporting at the event, and social media training for the client and their staff after the event so that they can learn how to maintain and grow their social networks.”
Conceived as a personal link to a global conversation, groups and organizations are now vying for attention in social media, injecting messages of many kinds into the freewheeling digisphere. Journalism is in there somewhere…but these are early days. Who knows how social media will evolve with its intricate interplay of fact and fancy as more and more constituencies pile on.
But opportunities are opportunities and Charlie Oliver has seized upon one in these days of dramatic reordering in the news business. Our thanks for the coverage to Charlie and to her Served Fresh Media crew.
