Warren Whitlock's Summary

I consult with corporations and entrepreneurs on strategies needed to take advantage of digital media tools and online opportunities that drive growth and profits.

Perhaps best known for writing the first book about Twitter “Twitter Revolution,” I explained how mobile technologies and social media would revolutionize marketing and business. Nearly everything predicted came true and yet this remains a clear roadmap for the future of business.

Digital business IS business today, but business is still all about connections and collaboration between human beings. Modern tools allow us to be more connected than ever before and still provide an individualized experience to each prospect and customer.

"Profitable Social Media: Business Results Without Playing Games" follows my no-nonsense, business process approach that reaps quick and continuous results from investments.

The latest book is “Billions Rising: Empowering Self-Reliance”, stemming from the non-profit foundation I founded of the same name. The clear message is that it is always better to give a hand up than a hand out. We highlight the success of entrepreneurs and passionate people who have a heart to change the world by doing just that.

► If you’re interested in working with me or discussing your plans to make a positive change in the world, please contact me via free LinkedIn message above or email me at W@MBSBC.com. I look forward to learning more together through our conversations.

Warren Whitlock's Experience

Media Publishing & Content Marketing Strategy | Social Media Marketing Speaker

Carbon Digits

2003Present (11 years)

Media used to be making a good TV show, a good radio program, a great print publication. It used to be creating a campaign that ran as ads or commercials. That old world of “push marketing” still exists, it has just been joined by the “new media” of the internet, mobile devices, social media, and other places people spend their time. It has been enhanced. Today, media can be a real two-way conversation with the marketplace: your prospects and customers.

At Carbon Digits, we mix the new media of marketing on the internet “digital marketing” by publishing websites, blogs, podcasts, hangouts, webinars, seminars, conferences, story-telling… you telling yours or your customer telling yours, is paramount in today’s world.

Everything is content. Content is everything. For a brand to stand out as having an added value to the commodity which they sell, it has to show experience and content. What is your value-add? If you don’t know, we can help.

  • 9/21 Peace On Celebration

    • September 2012 to Present
    Team Members: Warren Whitlock, Ben Mack, Ronda Del Boccio, Shila Fisher, Mark Jamnik, Jay Scott Berry

    Peace Day celebration in Asheville, NC on September 21st seeks to make social media history as the first time #PeaceDay is a trending topic on Twitter.

    Asheville, NC Join us at 11:30 am (EST) on Peace Day 9.21 we will have a live streaming event online via www.PeaceOn.Us covering events in Asheville happening simultaneously at the Asheville Art Museuem, Black Mountain College Museum + Art Center, and Firestorm Café. Home participation is woven throughout the live online streaming event hosted by Mark Jamnik live from the Asheville Art Museum.

    September 21, 2013, will be the 31st anniversary of The U.N.'s Peace Day. The 193 member nations of the U.N. has dedicated 9/21 of each year to world peace, and specifically the absence of war and violence. However, the U.N. has yet to actualize a temporary global ceasefire on 9/21 of any year. Maybe 2013 will be the year we have peace one day.

    Why #PeaceDay? Getting folks to post with a unifying hashtag is key if we want to trend on 9/21/13. Trending is an important tactic for raising awareness 9/21 = Peace Day. Twitter trending topics can be seen around the world. Trends appear in the column on the left side of the page. Trends are immediately popular, rather than topics that have been popular for a while or on a daily basis, and help more people discover the hottest emerging topics of discussion on Twitter. Trends often have pound - # - sign before the word or phrase. This is called a hashtag and is included specifically in Tweets to mark them as relating to a topic, so that people can follow the conversation in search.

    "Making #PeaceDay a trending topic on 9/21 is all about collaboration. If we make this happen, it's like saying the people of the world have voted for peace on 9/21," said Warren Whitlock, a Top 10 Forbes Social Media Influencer who Tweets via @WarrenWhitlock.

    Free admission for folks who come to Asheville Art Museum or Black Mountain College Museum + Art Center to celebrate peace day with us.

  • Billions Rising: Empowering Self-Reliance Around the Globe | Author

    • November 2013 to Present

    Billions Rising is a real-world documentation of the old proverb which tells us if you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day; but if you teach him how to fish, you feed him for a lifetime. Across the globe, there are well-meaning organizations giving handouts to people in need. But the more sustainable solution comes from the projects, non-profits and companies who strive to give people a hand up rather than a handout. While mainstream media buries these inspiring stories, Billions Rising shines the spotlight into the darkness and boldly proclaims what the world tries to ignore: a foundation for self-reliance is the best gift that anybody can receive.

    This book is a project of The Billions Rising Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that documents and highlights efforts of people and organizations around the world that are empowering others to become self-reliant.

    Our mission at the Billions Rising Foundation is to explore anything that is helping to empower self-reliance. We’ve talked to charities that go beyond handouts, focusing on education revolution and new potential in the technologies that connect us. We are finding that collaboration is always at the heart of the best programs. Self-reliant does not mean “living alone” but today is part of the connection to our fellows that allows individuals to take responsibility, collaborate, and make a difference.

    The Billions Rising Foundation is dedicated to the idea that this abundant world has everything we need for each person on the planet to live in prosperity. We believe that poverty will be eliminated through education, action, innovation and collaboration. Each of us can make choices to become self-reliant ourselves and then reach out to help others do the same.

Warren Whitlock's Publications

  • Best Seller: Profitable Social Media

    • Xeno Press
    • November 11, 2011

    Learn how to add social media to your business and gets measurable results.

    “Warren is the reason I am involved in the social media space. When we met, I was beginning to utilize new media to grow my business and he said 'you MUST be in the social networks.' I took his advice and I can attribute my business book deal, my influence increase and at least half a million dollars in business to my effective use of social media per Warren's examples. His advice is valuable, listen closely.”
    ~~Carrie Wilkerson, Author, The Barefoot Executive
    ====================================
    Excerpts from Declan Dunn’s foreword:
    "As someone who has been asked to review many social media books, Profitable Social Media is the first book I've read that spells out in detail that Social media is rapidly growing up from the early years to a new world driven by many smaller, higher quality markets.

    It is also finally the time that social media must prove ROI, which makes the release of this book, Profitable Social Media, timely and more than relevant.
    Beyond the changing tools like Facebook, G+, and Twitter, people are creating new ways of using media and sharing it with friends while unknowingly creating the emerging social world of word of mouth marketing.

    Since at least 33% of all Internet traffic is from Facebook alone and a considerable amount from the other two leaders of social media traffic, YouTube, and Twitter, ignoring your social media strategy will likely doom your business online in the next few years.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    “MINDSHIFT a business owner must make if you want to successfully use social media to grow your business.
    The chapter on Serendipity Selling shares key distinctions and insider information on exactly how to communicate and connect in a way that online master communicators understand, but until now has never been defined and shared in such a step by step manner. The book definitely lives up to its name!"
    ~~Michelle Price, Social Media Capitalistless
