“All business has to play by small town rules now. When every one of your customers can talk to everyone else, it’s like a small town.” Becky McCray
Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) February 06, 2012
Social Media Tulsa, the area's most active social media group, has rapidly become the place for thought leaders and newbies alike to share tech, mobile, and social media’s best practices.
March 15-16, 2012, Social Media Tulsa will host the second annual #SMTULSA Conference at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Tulsa.
“Last year, Becky McCray gave the opening keynote at our very first conference and we’re so excited to have her preview her new book at this year’s conference, said Cheryl Lawson of Party Aficionado, LLC and founder of Social Media Tulsa. Becky’s ability to connect the changes in today’s business world to small towns is phenomenal. When she speaks, you can see the light bulbs going off in the audience as they collectively nod their heads.”
“All business has to play by small town rules now,” said Becky McCray. “When every one of your customers can talk to everyone else, it’s like a small town.”
Becky McCray and co-author Barry Moltz know that small town businesses have learned to thrive with limited resources, build communities, and reach beyond geographic boundaries.
Becky and Barry have discovered seven Small Town Rules that all businesses are having to cope with today, and they have made them the subject of their new book, Small Town Rules: How Big Brands and Small Businesses Can Prosper in a Connected Economy. The book is now available for pre-orders on Amazon.com.
Registration is open for Social Media Tulsa Conference 2012 via Eventbrite.com. Attendees will get a preview of the new book, Small Town Rules during Becky McCray’s keynote on March 16, 2012.
