Podcast Alert: Peter Shankman Shares Social Media Insight–What to Do/What NOT to Do!!

Peter Shankman is a well-known person around the net– if you are plugged into advertising, pr, social media or branding. If you are a PR person, you probably know who Peter is. If you are a journalist who has used the Helpareporterout.com site, you definitely know who Peter Shankman is– because that’s his site along with his geekfactory.com business.
Grabbing 411 from his website:
PR Week Magazine has described Peter as “redefining the art of networking,” and Investor’s Business Daily has called him “crazy, but effective.” Peter Shankman is a spectacular example of what happens when you harness the power of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and make it work to your advantage. .
(Peter calls it ADOS: Attention Deficit; Oh Shiny!)

Here’s one of his work centers: at home social media center. Ummm Peter.. “oh shiny” doesn’t begin to touch this!!
Entrepreneur, author, speaker, and ingenious worldwide connector, Peter is recognized nationally and globally for radically new ways of thinking about social media, PR, marketing, advertising, creativity, and just about everything else..
Peter is the founder and CEO of The Geek Factory, Inc., a boutique Marketing and PR Strategy firm located in New York City, with clients worldwide. His blog, which he launched in 2002, (www.shankman.com) both comments on and generates news and conversation.

There’s a great deal about Shankman that I could tell you here– but it would only duplicate what’s in the podcast. Here’s a bit of the stuff from his site that tells you where and how he got started and how many fingers he has in so many pies (makes me wonder if he has 4 hands and not two– besides his trusted assistant Meagan!)

Thank you so much to Peter Shankman for sparing a chunk of time for this podcast and for also getting me into the Newport Beach conference. Check out that short but sweet video with notes on key points–which you can also find on my twitter feed. The post is Tuesday.. about the same time!
