Social Media Talk with Amanda Vega

by Fred von Graf on October 30, 2009

I’ve started a series of talks with companies and agencies that use Social Media.  These talks cover how they got in to using Social Media, how they use it today, some of the tools they use, the issues they ran in to and some key learnings they had along the way.  I’m doing this to help you learn what others are doing, get an idea of the challenges that others are facing, help you to connect with new people and hopefully get some conversation and innovation happening.

I had the pleasure of talking with Amanda Vega, the President of Amada Vega Consulting about their use of Social Media.  Amanda’s been doing this for some time, from her start as an AOL chat moderator when she was 17, to selling her second company to Ogilby and Mather in 1999, to running her current consultancy with a team of 120 world wide.  She has been helping agencies and companies optimize and integrate the ongoing stream of new technology and marketing options growing in the online space while also more effectively integrating those into their traditional programs.

Amanda is also a published author with her “PR in a Jar” and being a contributor to the best selling book “The Social Media Bible“.  She was one of the first bloggers on the Internet and helped shape many of the “social media” tools we have today – well before they had a name. She’s a pink Porsche owner, Pug lover, and cupcake connoisseur.
