I'll be in town this week, meeting with a few clients and prospects, and speaking at a panel at SLU. Drop me a line if you want to chat, but our new business is called Social Media Talent. It's a staffing firm for social media consultants, working in partnership with Craig Fisher of Talent Net Live. Craig is a trainer and recruiting expert with a similar background to my own.
Social Media Talent is a unique staffing firm in that we're providing long-term contractors for corporate clients having difficulty finding and keeping their own social media talent. The gap we saw was between entry-level practitioners and strategists who can provide high-level guidance, but won't work internally with a client to drive the kind of change necessary for long-term success.
Craig and I focus on productivity in Sales, Recruiting, Customer Service, and Marketing, and our personal networks give us access to the best talent in the country. It's an exciting time, and we're glad to be driving real change in the social media world.
