If you want to learn how to succeed in social media marketing or digital communications you should probably take some advice from today’s featured Visionary. Whether that advice comes from his Ad Age Power 150 blog, his books Twitter Marketing for Dummies and Branding Yourself, or his constant stream of tweets you are almost guaranteed to learn something new from him every day.
Kyle Lacy has more than a knack for the digital communications world. Not only does he understand the power of social media and the marketing opportunities that come from it, but he also has found ways to teach others how to use it too. Kyle’s blog, Kyle Lacy’s Thoughts on Social Media Productivity, Innovation and Marketing, is a must for those interested in social media marketing and those already involved in it. His Twitter Marketing for Dummies book was so popular that the second edition will be released later this year.
Now might be a good time to point out that all the blogging, tweeting and authoring of books is just something Kyle does on top of his nine to five (prob. plus 10hrs). Kyle is a Principal at MindFrame, a company that combines public relations, digital marketing and advertising/branding to help their clients meet their vision of how to create a better world. Kyle has been invited to share his knowledge at more than 175 speaking engagements across the United States. From college students to CEOs, Kyle has shared his vision of the digital world to tens of thousands of people.
We were fortunate enough to take up the ten minutes of free time Kyle has in a day to fill out our Vision Q&A. Reading his answers, it’s easy to see that Kyle got to where he is because he’s constantly surrounded himself with a large network and people who he believes are better than him. He may not want to answer the “when I grow up” question, but we wouldn’t be surprised if there were some people that want to grow up to be just like him. (click image to enlarge.)
