Social Media & Charlotte, NC

Charlotte has one of the fastest growing social networks in the US. I’m not sure if it’s because the area is so affluent with b2b technology or if we’re just chatty but it’s always been nice to be a part of the local community.

I’ve had my own twitter account (@ciordia9) for some time now and enjoy the relationships I have built with so many regional people and those far away. Beyond the banal, twitter, or better yet social media in general is a very diverse ecosystem that one can learn quite a lot from.

Grassroots and Social Media

The Secret Chocolatier has benefited from our active region on twitter (@SecretChocolate). We’re a family business that has started with nothing but an idea and some domain expertise. Nurturing that through the local and digital grapevine has been amazing.

We source great ideas, lift up our new offerings, invite all to so many of our events in Charlotte. It’s been a great help that we couldn’t have afforded otherwise.

We heard it through the twitter-vine that #SoFresh was looking for some goodies.

What is Social Fresh?

Social Fresh is your opportunity to learn how to make the social web work for real business. Social networking and online word-of-mouth tools are getting faster and providing more access to the customer every day. To remain competitive, every company needs to discover how to make social media work for their bottom line. —Social Fresh

Orange Chocolate Truffles

If you didn’t already notice Social Fresh is “juicy” and we know how to create some phenomenal citrus truffles. Pink grapefruit, lemon, lime, and our foundation flavor orange.

For SoFresh we packaged up hundreds of orange chocolate truffles for the event sponsors and speakers and hope they enjoy them and their stay in our area. We’re always striving to find a better way to communicate and get participation from our growing community.
