How I became a Social Media Swami at Network Solutions.

by Shashi Bellamkonda on September 19, 2008


Everytime I give out cards , I raise eyebrows, For speaking opportunities the organizers call me back just to confirm that I am not playing a prank on them with my title Social Media Swami of Network Solutions.

The story is that I moved from Product Management to setup this listening post in the Social Media for Network Solutions. Now there is no precedence and I pondered on what the title would be.

So the first step we took was to ask our employees , now we didn’t do it in a official email all employees way but started spreading the word through friends and “microwaving lunch” conversations. Here is the entire list of submssions.

      Pretty exhaustive, Shashi!… Having met you in person, I would say that you could add to this list: New Media Czar and Community Conductor. Thanks for making the connections last night at TwinTech! It was great to learn more about your approach to Web 2.0, and to know that Network Solutions is taking its customers seriously – meeting them where they are at. Will stay in touch. And, thanks for leading the way with business blogging!

      I like “Buzzmaster General”, but I’d also get a second title “Director of Social Media Development” for future work ;)

      Director of Social Media Strategy sounds like a really high paid position. Must be loads of fun.
