Were you watching the leaderboards?

IAMCP - Jon Rivers (Marketing Monarchs) - WPC 2015 Leader BoardIf you have been to any of the Microsoft partner events in the past 12 months there is one name that consistently dominates the leaderboards.

It was Jon Rivers of Marketing Monarchs.

He is the king of posting before, during and oftentimes after these big Microsoft events. The Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) in Orlando and the Microsoft Convergence event in Atlanta are great examples.

There is a reason Jon is a Social Ambassador. He understands what it takes to get the word out and does a great job of keeping the people at the event and the people watching from afar informed.

Comically … he was banned by Twitter for a little while during both of these events. Even though he and Microsoft gave Twitter a heads up that he would be posting a lot of content. Such is life!

Making It Easy to Stay Informed

Jon is an expert on the Microsoft Dynamics suite of products. He’s also helping the IAMCP and Microsoft efforts to get the word out using social media and speaking sessions.

WP_20150714_016He’s a speaker too. His session on using LinkedIn at the WPC in Orlando was a standing room only crowd. His content resonated and the questions from the audience showed they were engaged and interested. He might even share the content with you if you ask nicely.

Now he can help you … Jon started a company to help Microsoft (and other) partners get the most out of social media exposure. He’s making it really easy to work with him and based on the work I’ve done with him I can highly recommend him. His ability to understand your message and morph it into a form that can maxmize exposure using Social Media is unparalleled.

Marketing Monarchs is LIVE!
