Achieve Internet Fame or How to Upgrade Your Personal Brand

nametag02.jpgFormer mediabistro.com intern, Wired cover girl and new puppet Julia Allison is teaming with 1938 Media‘s Loren Feldman and Wine Library TV‘s Gary Vaynerchuk to teach you the secrets of personal branding and Internet fame at mediabistro.com’s one-night seminar.

Sign up here for the October 7th event (with wine tasting to follow) or check out the details after the jump.


The power of the web has created the golden age of the individual. Social Media tools provide us with more opportunities than ever to shine. But these days it takes much more than a website and a business card to get attention. It’s all about creating a strategic plan for the most important brand around: YOU.

How do you want your audience to think about you? Are you going to dive in right in, fly by the seat of your pants, and deal with potential backlash as it comes? Or will you carefully plot out your meteoric rise to stardom? Whichever path you choose, personal branding has two essential requirements: passion and authenticity.

Join us to talk about the art of personal branding with three mavericks of the DIY branding revolution:

  • Julia Allison (TimeOut NY, Nonsociety.com): Her adoption of technology and mastery of spectacle got her on the cover of Wired this summer.
  • Loren Feldman (1938 Media): His unfiltered opinions and comic chops have made him the de facto satirist of web culture (with help from some puppet friends).
  • Gary Vaynerchuk (Wine Library TV): His wild personality, scholarly knowledge of wine, and video camera helped create a 45 million-a-year empire.
  • Suzie Ivelich (moderator) is an expert on brand creation & development, and has worked across a myriad of industries. Some of her clients include GE, Charles Schwab, Suzuki, and The New Museum.
