It’s a new day. It’s a new chapter. We’re South Florida and we’re proud of our digital chops. From freelancers to agencies to startups to journalists and investors, we’re an ecosystem to be proud of. Join us to meet the community, to celebrate a decade of growth, and to start new things.
When we created this community nine years ago, social media was all the rage: our media landscape was vastly different, Facebook and Twitter were still startups, and social media was hardly a bonafide profession yet. That is to say, a lot has changed over the past decade.
Fast forward to today and most everyone in this community has become proficient in social media and online marketing. Many of you are marketing, PR, and social media professionals, like me, and most of you have started looking to the future of online media and marketing. If social media has become synonymous with the Internet, then what’s next?
Over the past few years, we have witnessed the emergence of augmented and virtual reality, blockchain, digital currencies, machine learning, artificial intelligence, big data … as well as new marketing techniques, tools, and platforms. We have seen new developments in marketing funnels, buyer’s journeys, measurement and analytics, performance marketing, and more. Our interests cover all of the above and more and we welcome discussion in this group about all of the listed topics and anything else that comes along in terms of media, marketing, journalism, and technology. Everything is related and the more we know, the better professionals we are.
