We’re thrilled social media expert and entrepreneur Randi Zuckerberg is the keynote speaker at the ASI Show in NYC Thursday at 8:45 a.m. I’m sure she’ll help everyone in the audience better promote their business by tapping into every new social media tool available.
Long known as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s sister, Randi’s really come into her own since leaving the company and forming her own enterprise, R to Z Media. Zuckerberg also recently signed as an executive producer for a new reality show about Silicon Valley entrepreneurs on Bravo.
Zuckerberg, named No. 45 on the Hollywood Reporter’s list of “Digital Power Players,” will speak on “Social Change Through Social Media: How the Web Changes the Way We Live, Vote, Organize and Work.” I’m most interested in what she has to say about ways today’s politicians are using social media to garner votes.
As you may have heard, Facebook is using its considerable power for good, launching a new initiative to get more organ donors registered in order to help the more than 114,000 people in the US waiting for lifesaving heart, kidney or liver transplants. Click here to see how Facebook is using its site to get out the word.
Here in NY, a Port Jefferson distributor, Hal Kramer, of HDK Enterprises, Inc. (asi/216795), gave us a ton of info on his efforts on behalf of the NY Organ Donor’s Network, the second-largest of the nation’s 58 nonprofit, federally designated organ procurement organizations.
His group is trying to get people to better understand the critical need for donated organs, eyes and tissues. One donor, he says, can save up to eight people, but on average, 18 people die every day for the want of an organ transplant.

Are you an organ donor? Let me know by posting a comment. And if you catch Randi’s keynote, please share the best tip you heard.

We’re getting ready for a major launch of ESP Websites later this month and to celebrate, we’re hosting a launch party at the ASI Show in New York.
If you’re at the show, the free beer starts flowing at 2 p.m. today at the main ASI booth #816. The fun continues with more beer, wine and snacks at the show entrance right after the show ends at 4:30 p.m. Stop by and check out the live demos, giveaways and free upgrades.
Click here for a sneak peek of everything ESP Websites (which is replacing LogoMall) has to offer.
In addition, we’re hosting an ESP Websites webinar on May 23. Click here to register.
And mark your calendar: Around May 18, we’re launching what I believe to be the very best virtual sample tool in the industry. The keywords for this new tool – which will greatly benefit your sales force – are simple and easy.
It works like this:
When an end-buyer’s logo is uploaded, it’s automatically correctly placed and sized on every virtual sample-ready product in ESP Web™, the new version of ESP Online, and in the upcoming ESP Websites™. All of your ESP® users will automatically have the virtual sample tool as soon as it goes live, and your ESP Website will be enabled as soon as you upgrade from LogoMall.
We’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have at the launch party, so please stop by.
And if you’re at the show, let me know what you think so far by emailing me or posting a comment.
