Amy Vernon – Prize-winning journalist and Social Media Expert
Amy Vernon was forced into entrepreneurship, like so many of us are. Her newspaper downsized (ever heard that story?) and she was forced to step up to the entrepreneurial plate. Overnight, she made the transformation from old media to new, focusing on social media skills. She has been featured in The New York Times, Forbes and PRNewswire, VentureBeat, Slashdot’s Business Intelligence and Punk Views. And she’s been a guest on several well-known podcasts, including Pulse on Marketing, The Drill Down, Blendover, The Urly Show, Social Blade and Beer Diplomacy. She was inducted to the New Jersey Social Media Hall of Fame and speaks at conferences and events like SXSW Interactive, CROWDFUNDx, Marketing Profs B2B, Columbia University’s Social Media Weekend, SMX, Social Media Week, Internet Week, ROFLCon and Affiliate Summit East. She is also known as the Bacon Queen, running the only bacon news aggregator on the Internet!
