    Experts’ advice: Start early on new social networks, reach out to influencers

     

    NEW YORK--You won’t find a meetup that dissects each social network these days but last April 20, AlleyBoost did just that in its talk, “Social Media Done Right” featuring Courtney Spritzer, co-founder and COO of Socialfly; Jeongwoon Eun, founder of Tigerwon; and Pavel Konoplenko, co-founder and CEO of Spoiled Media at Workville near Times Square.

    The panelists came up with several suggestions on how to get the word out there amid the noise in social networks, highlighting the importance of an influencer strategy and why it’s important to be an early adopter in a new social network.
