The Social Media Success Summit #SMSS10 continues to deliver powerful information on how you can utilize social media marketing in your business.
“8 Steps to Creating a Winning Social Media Strategy”
@JayBaer wants us to remember that tools change, so, start with a strong strategic plan for your social media efforts. Make sure you have a team at your office to support it. Decide who your audience is and don’t forget to listen to them. The best way to break through is make the company human. Tell stories or your customer’s stories (remember Jared from Subway?). Get beyond the features and benefits and make people feel your passion.
“How Mobile Marketing Can Improve Social Media”
@kimdushinkski wants you to know that even if you don’t think you are mobile, if you are sending email and someone checks it from their phone you are! You should even consider having a web page to your main site that is optimized for mobile so people can easily see how to contact you on their 2 inch phone screen. If you are ready to dip your toe into the mobile marketing waters, both Twitter and Facebook offer SMS test message feeds your fans and followers can subscribe to.
“The Future of Social Media”
@steverubel says that trends develop slowly but are timeless. Remember that people need to hear your message 3 to 5 times from 3 to 5 different sources for it to sink in. Tap into free tools online and become a data junkie to figure out what unmet needs are on the rise that you can provide the solution for and create content that will be passed around. All roads to content lead through Google, so, make friends with Google Insights. You could rise to the top of a search category if you are digitally visible in enough places. Klout.com is a great place to find out “who the world is listening to”.
Ready to get on the social media marketing train but don’t know where to start? There is an awesome online conference you must know about! Social Media Success Summit 2010 is the web’s largest live virtual marketing conference that will empower you to use social media to gain more exposure, better engage customers and grow your business.
Attend webinars from 24 of the world’s leading social media gurus, such as: Guy Kawasaki (author, Art of the Start), Chris Brogan (author, Social Media 101), Darren Rowse (author, ProBlogger), Mari Smith (author, Facebook Marketing), Greg Jarboe (author, YouTube and Video Marketing), Kim Dushinski (author, Mobile Marketing Handbook); experts from Best Buy, Home Depot, Whole Foods, Foursquare and Groupon; Steve Rubel (Edelman), Ann Handley (MarketingProfs), Brian Clark (Copyblogger), Jason Falls (Social Media Explorer), Jay Baer (Convince & Convert) and Ramon De Leon (Chicago Domino’s Pizza)—just to mention a few!
This is the place where the social media thought leaders come together to talk about what’s happening in social media marketing and considering the online world is so dynamic and changes so quickly, you’ll want to know what other business have learned and are doing so you can put your social media marketing strategy in place.
TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO SAVE 50% (Expires at Midnight Pacific on Thursday April 15th)
This virtual, online summit starts Tuesday, May 4 and runs through May 25. It will be spread over many weeks (and recorded for later playback) so, even if you have a schedule conflict, you can still play back any of the webinars at a later date.
“Consider this: 97% of last year’s attendees said they’d recommend the summit to a friend and attend again,” says Michael A. Stelzner, #SMSS10 Event founder. “Studies show that consumers prefer to work with businesses that have a strong social media presence. It’s not too late to get your business engaged with customers via social media. But if you wait, you’ll be giving your competitors a significant advantage that’ll be hard to overcome.”
I attended last year and I can’t wait to find out what this amazing group has to share with us this year! This event is THE SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING EVENT for any business who wants to be successful using social media to generate leads and build strong business partnerships.
