17 May What is One Aiken?
One Aiken- open collaboration is a local community Grassroots Partnership designed to augment Top Down planning with a Grassroots boost for faster progress! It is a place to network with others that have common goals and to look for opportunities that benefit your personal and business lives.
Everyone has ideas! One Aiken – open collaboration is about sharing our ideas and talents, looking for synergy, and building an energy base for 21st century Aiken CHARM!
We have established a framework to partner homogenous groups of people together to tackle their passions and goals while always looking for opportunities to achieve greater synergy through cross-collaboration with other groups. This will help them to grow their businesses via improved social media skills and cross-promotions.
One Aiken – open collaborations had been a series of experiments for over 2 years. A diverse crowd has been brainstorming and dreaming up some wonderful initiatives they have energy for – whether for their professional or personal benefit. Big ideas and small ideas. A lot of ‘people connections’ have been formed and these folks are ready to increase their circle of influence!
Because the current ideas floating around are so diverse, we have split them up into initial #hashtag categories that we can use to easily communicate among ourselves on Social Media channels. Hashtags will also make it easy for visitors and newcomers to find the ‘tribe’ they want to join, find new resources, find your business, and learn more about how wonderful and charming Aiken really is.
We have started to have Social Hours and classes to help spread knowledge and to teach the skills need to effectively market yourself and your business today. Keep posted on our website and our social media outlets to learn of our upcoming dates and times. Promotions and discounts apply to members!
