Social Media Success
This Friday, the Democratic Club welcomes Josh Wade. Josh is the creator of NectarWineBlog.com. He is also
the owner of Nectar Tasting Room, Nectar Wine and Beer in Kendall Yards, Nectar Catering and Events,
and Nectar Media Consulting. Josh is a former marketing executive who used social media tools like blogging,
Facebook, and Twitter to successfully launch his brand. Not only did he succeed in creating brand awareness
and a loyal following, he did it before opening the Nectar Tasting Room in January of 2011. In other words, he
built his customer base before investing in the brick and mortar business. More importantly, his exclusively
online approach required no investment in traditional marketing methods. He will share his tips for social
media success this Friday at the Iron Horse Bar and Grill. Come find out how you can take your social
marketing skills to the next level.
