I am so proud to introduce the new casita for Latinos in Social Media. Not only a brand new look, but also a brand new approach! As you know we have been exploring our souls to better understand who we are and the reason why we exists. We have asked our community and your answers shed light to our mission. LATISM is the largest organization of Latino Professionals engaged in social media.
So what’s the main difference? Before we focused on social media professionals. Now we realize that social media goes across all fields and industries. It plays an intrinsic role in the area of education, health, economic empowerment, advocacy, entrepreneurship, technology, policy and so forth. Today, LATISM aims to bring together all professionals who have embrace Transmedia as an intrinsic tool of communication and engagement.
This is the reason why we are launching this beta site. We will be on beta for at least two months. Why? because if we had given you a perfect piece, there would have been no room for your unique pincelada (brush? not sure how you say that in English, please help me translate it in the comments). So now we are giving all the Latinos in Social Media a canvas with minimal sketches, like a Picasso painting. We’re adding one page on the blog where you can send your suggestions. At the end of February, we will take all your suggestions and have the community vote on the top priorities. Those functionalities will be implemented first. So get ready to help us turn this casita into OUR home where everyone has a valued voice and groups can have their own rooms to connect and empower one another.
If you are a community leader, you may add it as an independent network. You’ll have the opportunity to enable all your social media platforms and give your members an easy and fast way to follow you everywhere in just one click. Our goal is to help you grow and help you lead. Our mission is to give you the social media tools to engage with your community. As a non-profit organization we can offer this free of charge.
If you are an entrepreneur, a small business or a corporation, we are also offering the same services. You may not only build your Latino community on LATISM but you can also grow all your other platforms so your customers find an easy way to engage with you everywhere. We ask corporations to support LATISM through the different membership opportunities. Your contribution will benefit the entire community of Latinos in Social Media through the many learning opportunities we offer throughout the year. These opportunities include Latino2, Webinars, Learning Tweetups, Reasearch, Twitter Parties and all the Scholarships.
LATISM IS CALLING
- We are calling leaders to head the LATISM group in their region. Read the 10 commandments for LATISM Directors and if still interested, kindly contact Elianne at Elianne@Latism.org and we’ll take you from there.
- We are calling sponsors who see the unique opportunity of empowering Latino influencers in their respective areas to use of transmedia as a strategic tool to build awareness, lead their tribes, promote their career/business and engage around common goals to make change happen.
- We are calling experts in the areas of Education, Health, Technology and Economic Development. Experts who have discovered the value of social media in these respective areas and join the Transmedia Committees. Together we will explore how the use of new media and new technology can impact (for the good and the bad) our Latino(a)s in every age, location and socioeconomic background.
- Finally we are calling YOU! The most important piece of this equation. You who discovered the amazing power of social media, the new revolution in the way we communicate and engage. By joining LATISM and listing your blog, areas of expertise, communication platforms, you become an agent of change. You are a leader, a power house, an acknowledged voice. Weather you have joined to influence others on your passion, cause, business, career or dreams, you have come to the right place. LATISM wants to empower your goal and keep our gente together because:
LATINOS UNIDOS JAMAS SERAN VENCIDOS
