In The Social Media Marketing Conference, you'll learn...

  • How to make social media “connect” for your business
  • New tools and new ways to grow your business you may not have thought of
  • How to define your strategy and create your plan before taking the plunge into social media
  • The most common mistakes being made—spot them on the horizon and take a detour
  • And much more!

If it seems like nearly every business on the planet is connecting with fans on Facebook®, Tweeting, uploading videos on YouTube™ and getting LinkedIn®—except you—you’re not alone. Many organizations who haven’t gone “social” yet are feeling the same way, scratching their heads and wondering: Are businesses really making money using social media? Can my business still get in on the action—and the profits?

The businesses that are making money set goals and objectives, follow a plan, choose and use the best tools, carefully monitor their results and faithfully measure their ROI. In other words, there are a lot of things you’ll need to get up to speed on to get started with social media and be successful.

Our conference is set up in a convenient 2-track format with 10 exciting sessions to choose from. Attend one track from start to finish, or mix and match the sessions to customize the conference to your own particular needs.
