Social media experts agree that the trucking industry is still lagging behind other industries when it comes to utilizing the tools of social media. Tools which can help professional truck drivers to further their careers or companies and corporations to grow their business, largely remain untouched by the U. S. trucking industry.
With the understanding and know-how of properly implementing social media into your business or profession, the CDL truck driver or smallest of trucking companies can grow above the basic level of posting a Facebook update or a single tweet on Twitter. The power of social media and what it can accomplish for the truck driver and the industry goes far beyond these simple, elementary basics.
Austin Walsh is one of the country’s leading experts in social media. Having designed and created Social Media campaigns for celebrity clients which include Mark Victor Hansen (author of Chicken Soup for The Soul) and Gary Goldstein, (Film Producer of the hit movie, Pretty Woman), Mr. Walsh has agreed to be our special guest speaker for the 1st Annual Truck Driver Social Media Convention.
Studies have shown that many truck drivers and trucking professionals, companies included, have a tendency to dismiss new technology and fail to see their business potential. Within the logistics arena of the trucking industry, this area currently falls far behind other industries in incorporating social media into their business applications.
There is much more to social media than Facebook and Twitter and by dismissing the age of technology and social media tools, truck drivers and trucking companies are losing out on a great deal of business and profitable growth. Fully understanding the tools of social media provides the capability to share your ideas or message to millions within a matter of moments.
Mr. Walsh will share his expertise with professional truck drivers and the trucking industry alike, on how you can reap the benefits of using the power of social media to your advantage.
