It’s my 2016 Christmas Special 

As you can see I was doing more than podcasting last week. I streamed our Christmas Special episode on Facebook Live.

I’ve been using social media for business and personally for nine years and it has now become my No 1 marketing and networking tool. What would you say if I told you that one tweet resulted in me keynoting at a conference in Phoenix, Arizona and selling my books to The Pentagon? Or that my podcast resulted in my being hired by the EPP Group in the EU Parliament?

Or that I win 80% of my business from my social media activities? Would you consider that’s possible for you?

  • I ask my special guests Jenny Brennan & Paul O’Mahony how social media has changed their lives.
  • Why Santa Claus has embraced social media and how it’s changing his life!
  • Shout-outs to three events I have in my diary for the first quarter of 2017.
  • We take viewers questions on how to use social media for business; and
  • JSB Talks Digital, the Vlog – yes I’m going front of screen!

So each week in the show I give shout-outs to people who are remarkable online and worth talking about. However, in this week’s show I wanted to share three events that are in my diary for the first quarter of 2017. 

I’m going to attempt to unleash the warrior in JSB at this two-day business event taking place in Dublin’s Convention Centre on January 11th & 12th. .  Organisers describe it as: “the world’s leading business and self-empowerment summit”.

I attended the event this year for the very first time, and I’m planning to make a return trip. It really is a WOW event with the world’s most talented social media practitioners from content to video, social advertising to tools and so much more. It also provides for fantastic networking opportunities. Did I mention they throw a party for delegates on a US military ship? That’s pretty cool also! So if you are interested log onto

However, check out my blog post on page 1 of Google when you type in Social Media Marketing World, I’ve given you my top 10 highlights of the 2016 event!
