The idea of being an "Internet celebrity" may carry a certain degree of cynicism with you, and that's cool. It's true that memes will come and go, but social media, video podcasting, and other tools have made the Internet an accessible and legitimate platform for individual success and notoriety. A huge stage exists for you to unleash your knowledge and passions to an eager audience.
But how do you get started? It's all about personal branding.
All will be revealed on October 7, when mediabistro.com presents Personal Branding Redefined. The panel features three trailblazers of DIY stardom:
Julia Allison (TimeOut NY, Nonsociety.com): Her immersion in technology and mastery of spectacle got her on the cover of Wired this summer.
Loren Feldman (1938 Media): His unfiltered opinions and comic chops have made him the de facto satirist of Web culture (with help from some puppet friends).
Gary Vaynerchuk (Wine Library TV): His wild personality, scholarly knowledge of wine, and video camera helped create a 45 million-a-year empire.
The panel will be followed by a reception, wine tasting, and book signing with Gary Vaynerchuk!
See you there!
