Rebecca Johnson was selected to organize and run the first ever, Social Media Help Desk at the California State Fair, in Sacramento, in July 2013!
Rebecca reached out to her extended network and with the help of some awesome volunteers, was able to provide social media support to fair goers for nearly 3 weeks!
The volunteers ranged from small business owners, to Social Media Club members, to students from UC Davis and Sacramento State University.
The fair, understanding the growing need to implement social media into the fair experience, wanted a place for fair attendees to gain a deeper understanding of how some of the new features worked. Volunteers answered a variety of questions including: "What are all these bar codes I keep seeing?" "How do I download a QR code scanner?" "How do I post this picture to my Facebook account?"
Fair attendees were very receptive to the idea, since there is currently no place to get "free" social media help or advice!
My Social Media Pro also provided a social media photo kiosk for one of the weeks during the fair.
Keep an eye out , because it looks like we will be back again next year!
In the meantime, here are some pictures! Enjoy!
A new social media marketing company has arrived in Sacramento. Introducing iSnap Social, the creator of the Social Photo Station and accompanying suite of social marketing tools. iSnap Social’s Photo Stationallows users to take a photo at a venue or event and upload it to social networks like Facebook, Foursquare and Twitter. iSnap Social provides an easy way for brands to expand their reach and influence on social media networks. “The holy grail of social media marketing is enticing your customers to market on your behalf and there’s no better way to do that than photo sharing,” says iSnap Social CEO and Co-Founder Alexander Lowe.
iSnap Social users get an easy way to take high quality photos, branded with the featured company’s graphic overlays and share them instantly. Featured brands and businesses get a unique tactic to engage customers, add fans and followers and gain insightful data.

The iSnap Social platform has already proved invaluable for Sacramento and nationally-based businesses alike. Customers that have successfully employed iSnap Social to aid their social media marketing campaigns include CBS Radio, Live Nation and Hyatt Resorts. Explains Doug Link, Theater Director for Imax Esquire Theater, “It is apparent with the reduction of marketing budgets and the proliferance of social media marketing, iSnap was an opportunity we could not afford to miss.”
CEO and Co-Founder Alexander Lowe conceptualized iSnap Social on a napkin in 2010. Since then iSnap Social has grown to become a global network reaching thousands of users every day in venues around the world.

Visual content is everywhere! It's on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Pinterest and now, Instagram (to name a few). Some call it photo journalism, some picture marketing- either way, it goes back to the 'ole adage that "Picture speak 1,000 words".
What if that same picture could be worth "1,000 Likes"?
While pictures DO tell a story, and are now being seen on social media sites more than ANY OTHER type of "post"- you want to make sure that the message being sent, aligns with your brand!
The folks at iSnap! came up with a great idea and came out with this amazing product: The Location Based Social Media Photo Kiosk !
What makes this so "amazing"?
Don't believe me? Just ask, Marissa Hodge, of West Sacramento Zumba! She had our kiosks out at a community event in West Sacramento! She got over 100 likes just by having the kiosk available for a few hours. She keeps the branded pictures recorded from the event, and now has 100 new people to connect with! Not to mention all of those who will "like" her page due to the fun that was seen by others from the posts!
The bottom line: This new technology makes visual content marketing easy!
