I’m speaking at Social Media Camp in Victoria! And here’s the blurb (*Visit the Conference Website by Clicking on the Graphic Below):
My Topic: Small Towns Big Ideas
Business owners in small communities can greatly benefit from the power of social media in order to:
- remove isolation
- even out the playing field in business
- move to a model of collaboration vs. competition
- increase access to both small town (local) business owners and large city companies
- build relationships with business owners
- make a difference
- have FUN during the business day especially with Twitter!
Brenda will provide at least one example of one small town person gone big, with huge help from social media.
Biography: Since 2002 Brenda Johima has been operating her home based business, JOHIMA Designs, which provides graphic design for print and web. In order to provide clients with a one-stop shop for success, she also jumped into SEO, Internet Marketing, and now Social Media.
Brenda Johima also wears many other arts hats while working in a small town and that may confuse those who look for a “one-niche” market, however success in small towns requires creativity, dreaming big and holding to that vision, and often doing more than one thing.
Brenda’s Twitter profile says it all; a Multi-Talented-Creative-Type, Designer, Visual Artist, Photographer: phoDOGrapher: Creativity Consultant for Business.
Although confusing to some, it’s crystal clear (and funny) to Brenda that in order to be truly be happy, business also means doing what you love (even if there’s a lot of them).
Brenda is also “officially” launching phoDOGraphy this fall of 2010, specializing in Dog Photography and Puppy Photos.

As a Creative, I don’t believe in “one-niche” marketing anymore (actually I never did). I believe we are much bigger, and we are much more complex, especially if you are the creative-type. Also, there is a shift in small business marketing, and I believe in all marketing, where more and more, people are having to, or choosing to, wear more hats, in business and in the workplace. This is a result in part, due to the recent changes in the economy, but also in part, as a choice to be happier in life and in work.
