Simplex-IT’s July 2012 Lunchinar is now available for viewing on our YouTube channel. For your convenience, by clicking the thumbnail below you can view it directly in this blog entry.

This was an open panel discussion featuring our own Bob Coppedge, Heather Taylor from the Greater Akron Chamber and Mike Sheehan, Life Insurance professional and Social Media advocate.

Always a hot topic, “Social Media: What Now?” not only drew a large crowd (we almost exceeded the legal limit for our meeting room at Hattie’s Café) it also elicited strong participation from the attendees. Looking beyond the basics of should I or shouldn’t I be involved in Social Media the discussion assumed people and businesses in attendance were already involved, at least to some degree. The question instead was, quite simply, what do we do now?

Topics that were discussed including reviewing your Social Media goals, focusing on your prospect and not on you, finding the value in Social Media, measuring your results and lastly, the new Social Media options. These included Google+, Pinterest, FourSquare, and others.

During the presentation mention was made of a local group, Akron Bloggers Community that meets the last Thursday of the month from 9:30AM to 11:00AM at Mocha Joe’s in Stow. It’s an open group and anyone can attend. Check them out! You can access their LinkedIn page by clicking here.

Enjoy the presentation!

Simplex-IT Summer Picnic

Actors Reenact 2010′s Picnic

Mark your calendars for August 15 from 4:00-8:00pm and join Simplex-IT as we welcome friends, clients, local business owners and fellow Chamber of Commerce members from Hudson, Streetsboro, Cuyahoga Falls and Akron. Once a year in August we forego our regular monthly business-oriented Lunchinar presentation in favor of an open invitation picnic celebration in the back yard of our Worldwide International Headquarters (5225 Darrow Road, Hudson). This year will be no exception.

Simplex-IT will be providing the beverages, hamburgers and hot dogs; you will be providing the essential “special ingredient” and camaraderie for which this annual event is becoming known. In addition to the abundant opportunities to network with your peers we will have assorted back yard games to test your skills. And for those who may be interested, we will also have available demonstrations of many of the information technologies Simplex-IT offers the business community throughout the year.

What should you bring? Your appetite, of course, a general sense of abandon and a lawn chair. That’s it! Plan on arriving early, staying late and having a good time!!

We do have one request. To ensure we have enough food and drink for everyone, we ask that you RSVP to or phone us at 234.380.1277.
