September 03, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Pittsburgh / PA / USA September 3, 2009 - According to April Weitzel, a veteran Internet marketing consultant in Pittsburgh, requests from local businesses to create Pittsburgh G20 Summit focused social media campaigns are on the rise.

With the Pittsburgh G20 Summit less than a month away, local businesses are looking for cutting edge ways to communicate with G20 attendees. Social media networks such as Twitter and Facebook provide direct, real time access to people actively engaged in dialogue about the Pittsburgh G20 Summit. They are tipping the balance once and for all in favor of using thoughtful creative messaging over hard sell advertising. The opportunities to utilize social media networks are endless from G20 protest groups organizing on Facebook to would-be entrepreneurs promoting clever t-shirts and bumper stickers via Twitter. Social media channels provide an excellent way to instantly communicate with G20 Summit attendees and spectators before during and after the event.

According to April, "Since the G20 Summit announced it is going to be in Pittsburgh, I've been working with local clients to develop social media marketing strategies that tie their business offerings to the G20. For obvious reasons, businesses in the legal services and housing industries are gearing up for an increase in business from the G20 attendees and protestors. It's my job to connect my clients with the G20 attendees via social media such as Twitter, Facebook and Youtube."
