More than a dozen ways to learn from me, all free

October 17, 2011

I give away something every day of the year. Absolutely free.

You may know about a few of these outposts, but if you’re looking to learn something new, or just have an insatiable curiosity about communication, let me guide you to all my freebies.

• Twitter @WadeOnTweets: It’s all happening in real time: links to interesting and entertaining things across the Web. Plus conversation, questions, sass and surprises. It’s getting close to 4,000 followers. And you don’t need to have a Twitter account to follow along.

If you prefer just seeing the tweets in a simple weekly digest, I keep all 27,000-plus on file in my collection of Twitter logs.

  • You can also see them mirrored on my personal Facebook profile. We might not be Facebook friends, but you can subscribe to my updates and still leave comments and questions or lurk to your heart’s content.
  • You can also see a select few mirrored on my LinkedIn profile, but I’m picky about who’s in my network there.

Blog posts: You’re reading one right now. I have thousands more. I’m doing regular posts here, plus some at the new Alabama Social Media Association site, once in a while at Media of Birmingham and some at Magic City Post (though more editing and site management). Not only can you see how I write, but different approaches, techniques, calls to action and other ways to jazz up your own blogging.

(And if you prefer using RSS, each one of those sites has an RSS feed, naturally.)

• Guest blog posts: I was lucky enough to pop up on quite a few blogs this year. Typically, I’ll let you know on Twitter or in the newsletter. Soon, I’ll likely have a roundup post on this site to guide you to the hidden gems out in Internet land.

• Birmingham Blogging Academy newsletter: It’s awesome. This award-winning weekly email guides you to my best stuff, shows where I’ll be speaking next and points out great events, trends and more. Subscribing is easy and free.

Speaking engagements: Whether it’s a college classroom via Skype or the monthly Birmingham Ad Fed luncheon, giving talks on communication, social media, blogging and more is where I really shine. Contact me about booking me for your next corporate event, conference or meeting.

Google+: A work in progress. More than 600 people have added me to their circles in just a few months, so I must be doing something right. Look for me to push harder on blogging, with conversations, Hangouts, networking and sharing in the near future.

Alabama Social Media Association: We work very hard to share as much as possible for free. That includes free monthly social events and five free educational luncheons a year. We’ve had nearly 1,000 attendees total at our events since launching in March, so please join us and meet the ever-growing social media community in town. Sign up for the ALsocme free mailing list.

Free consultations: If your company needs help with communication strategy, training, social media, blogging, media releases, public speaking and more, I can help. I’d be happy to sit down with you to help evaluate your goals and your needs. Contact me today.

We might never work together, but if you find some of my advice helpful, I’ve served my purpose.
