Social media has grown up in the last three years. Social media is not only your job, it's everybody's life.

It defines how you work, communicate with employees, contact the media, interact with customers and sell your products.

And we're only at the beginning of the Social Media Era.

At this event, you will hear about all the startling new media developments from the leading social media practitioners. You'll walk away with the tools you need to put your organization ahead of the competition.

You will learn how to:

  • Make an unanswerable case for social media to your C-suite 
  • Build a big social media team on a small budget
  • Get out lots of quality content on several social media platforms
  • Do social media assessment that measures goals and fits your budget
  • Spotlight your fans without losing (total) control of your brand
  • Get employees to humanize your brand through Social Customer Service
  • Write your content to increase "findability" by search engines
  • Teach employees your social media policy—don't just lay down the law
  • Engage influencers and customers in your brand
  • Curate your content to lure the right audiences to your communications
