Training Course Syllabus:

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.
