To wrap up 2014 was the Hootsuite Ambassador Yearbook:
Hosting HootUp’s are one of the most favourite activities that ambassadors like to take part in and organise. A HootUp is a social or informative event hosted by ambassadors to meet or teach their local community and meet fellow Hootsuite fans.
George Iacovacci was the 1000th ambassador to join the #Hootamb family, I asked him a few questions:
Top 1% Leader, Entrepreneur and Consultant
George has over 20 years experience in senior management having served as Director of Marketing, Vice President and as a Division President in the tech industry and has served as Executive Director of the south's leading health and wellness company. Mr. Iacovacci also co-founded a number of startups and brings success in multiple areas. Corporations, leaders and local businesses look to George when they are seeking creative ways to grow and expand their brand. He has successfully put together multi-million dollar marketing deals and/or strategic partnerships with companies such as Yahoo, Disney, AOL, Microsoft, and many others. Mr. Iacovacci currently resides in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia and enjoys serving on multiple boards and advisory committees including corporate and non-profit.
Why did you decide to become a Hootsuite ambassador? I received an invite from Matt at Hootsuite and thought what an honor- I then messaged HootAmb Adel De Meyer to learn more and after talking with Adel I felt it would be a great decision and opportunity to become a Brand Ambassador 🙂 Being an ambassador now what are you looking forward to the most? I am looking forward to hosting local hootups and introducing Hootsuite to the many entrepreneurs and business owners in and around Metro Atlanta. I am also very interested in meeting and learning from other hoot evangelists. What are your favourite feature/s about Hootsuite? My most used feature is scheduling. I feel Geotargeted Keyword Search for listening can be an extremely valuable tool and I’ve been using this in Hootsuite for a while now. What social media tip can you share with others wanting to use social media to grow their business or customer relationships? My best advice for others is to engage at first on all of the key networks and find the three platforms that best work for you to increase engagement. Once you increase engagement and create raving fans your community will grow and you will increase your business. George was recently listed in the Top 100 Twitter Users-Atlanta and he is currently ranked in the Top 5% Social Media Users – Definately a great ambassador to have onboard.
