Old Dogs Learning New Tricks
February 22nd, 2017 by Sherry Grantz
In case you have not heard the San Francisco Region of the SCCA has hired a social media advisor to promote ourselves. I know that in this day and age we are about eight years behind the curve. To make matters worse we are the San Francisco Region, right? Correct me if I am wrong, but didn’t the whole dot.com explosion happen right here? Wouldn’t you think that we would have been tweeting, snapchatting, and Facebooking a long time ago? Especially considering that Twitter lives in downtown San Francisco and Facebook considers Palo Alto home base.
But we have relied on historical relevance way too long. It is time to figure out where we are and where we need to be. It is time to figure out how to use our social media advisor to further the club. It is time to put down the pad and paper and start tweeting, snapchatting, and liking some things on Facebook. It is time for me to introduce James Chartres as our new social media expert.
In case you do not know who James is, he is an SCCA racer. James is our Australian import who drives a red and white SRF with, fittingly enough, a kangaroo painted on it – for Kanga Motorsports. James has been a frequent contributor to THE WHEEL and is very active promoting SCCA and his racing. He was a natural fit for our club and the Board looks forward to working with him.
