The next Social Media Breakfast will be held on Friday, April 13, 2012 at 8:30am at Canopy Houston. The speakers will be the fabulous Karen Walrond and Kelsey Ruger:
To get attention and cut through the clutter, you have to become a visual storyteller. Posts that use visual elements like photos, video, and graphics consistently perform better than those that don’t. At the Social Media Breakfast of Houston (#SMBHOU) this month we will be exploring the different facets of visual storytelling. We will hear from some brilliant visual storytellers about how to develop visuals that work across multiple channels and how to develop materials that moves pass the pedestrian to a inspire the people who see it.
We will be sharing several examples of impactful visual media and will ask you to share some of the visuals that have caught YOUR attention.
