In addition to producing great product, a successful medical writer is well-known in his/her specialties, and makes the rounds of
relevant industry meetings throughout the year.  But how do you stay in touch with connections and top-of-mind on a continual basis, so you are the obvious candidate for that next great writing assignment or new job opening?

Social media are now in full bloom as ways to stay connected, ways to express opinion and expertise, ways to share what you are working on – all so that people get to know you better.  Because people like doing business with people they know and trust.

In this 1-hour webinar, Cliff Mintz is going to share his experience, insight, and enthusiasm for using social media on a regular basis.

You will learn:

  • The overview of how social media can fit into your activity menu to build connections, trust and credibility
  • The tips and tricks of various social media tools
  • Ways to spend your time productively, and how to avoid unproductive time wasters
  • Examples of successful social media approaches which you can emulate
