Facebook Success Summit 2010: The Web's Largest Online Facebook Marketing Conference

Dear Fellow Marketer;

Are you using Facebook but not getting the results you hoped for?

Could you use some guidance and fresh ideas?

Yes, the allure of Facebook is strong: Direct connections with customers (and prospects) who were previously unreachable.

This means greater exposure and more business opportunities—all without the enormous costs of traditional marketing.

And given this economy, who doesn't want more business!

But if you're like me, you're looking to choose your Facebook activities wisely, without becoming consumed by all the options. You simply want to know what works best.

Social Media Examiner is happy to announce an online event designed to help marketers and business owners quickly achieve Facebook success—Facebook Success Summit 2010.

Twenty-two of the world's most respected Facebook experts have come together to share their strategies (see the great lineup in the box to the right). They'll reveal all the latest techniques and proven business-building tactics you need to know to immediately benefit with Facebook.

If you (like so many) find yourself confused by all that Facebook has to offer, now's your chance to achieve Facebook marketing success.

This fully online conference starts Tuesday, October 5, and runs through October 26.

It's comfortably spread over many weeks (and recorded for later playback) to accommodate your schedule.

Consider this: 95% of attendees at our last two events said they'd recommend it to a friend and attend again (see their testimonials below). Now we have an all-new slate of dynamic sessions fully focused on Facebook marketing.

Be sure to secure your spot in the only online professional development conference for businesses seeking to master Facebook marketing.

Here's to a bright future together!

Founder, Social Media Examiner

Proof That Facebook Means Business


In this video, Michael Stelzner explains why Facebook is essential for all businesses.

Yes, you've heard about Facebook. But did you know Facebook is the second most trafficked website in the world, just behind Google (according to Alexa)?

Facebook has fully permeated popular culture across the planet. But this is not some flash-in-the-pan phenomenon—and it's not just for kids.

Consider these interesting factoids:
  • Nearly half of Facebook users over age 35: A significant 48% of Facebook users are over age 35 (iStrategyLabs), putting to rest the idea that Facebook is just for college kids.

  • Facebook marketing on the rise: More than 75% of marketers plan on increasing their use of Facebook in 2010, according to the 2010 Social Media Marketing Industry Report. There are more than 3 million active Facebook business pages.

  • Mass consumer adoption of Facebook: 141 million unique U.S. visitors trafficked Facebook in June 2010, up 11 million from the prior month and nearly double from a year ago (ComScore). With more than 500 million users, Facebook reports that more than half use the site daily.

  • Facebook users spend more money: People who spend the most time on Facebook also spend the most money online, according to ComScore.

  • Small businesses are dominant players: Small businesses are cashing in quickly on social media and Facebook. Surprisingly, half of small businesses using social media say lead generation is its top benefit (Small Business Marketing Forecast 2010).

And these recent statistics are just a small sample of the power of Facebook.

So the big question is: What do experienced marketers and business owners know and do with Facebook that makes them so successful?

If you knew that—if you knew step-by-step how the pros create and execute Facebook pages and campaigns to attract high-quality customers and achieve success—you could simply duplicate what they do and achieve similar results.

That's what Facebook Success Summit 2010 is all about. We've brought together the world's most successful Facebook practitioners and asked them to reveal their success secrets to YOU. And it's all live!

And the best part? You don't have to spend a small fortune on travel, meals or a hotel to attend. The conference is completely online. You "attend" from the comfort of your own home or office, using your computer to watch, listen and participate in the presentations and networking.

However, like any conference, there's a limit to how many people can fit in the "room." So if you're interested in connecting with valuable customers and prospects, enhancing your image in your industry and improving sales, secure your spot at this conference today.

Is the Facebook Success Summit 2010 a Fit for You?

First, you don't need to be a techno-geek or twenty-something to use and benefit from Facebook marketing. You might be surprised to learn that most social media marketers are aged 30 to 60 and have only been using social media for just a few months.

If you find yourself in one of the categories below, the Facebook Success Summit 2010 is a fit for you:

  • The Small Business Owner: You're just getting underway with Facebook—likely a consultant, coach, local business owner, writer, blogger, artist or general "gun for hire"—and see the potential of Facebook marketing, but want to speed your path to success with the least effort and the greatest return.

  • The Corporate Marketer: You work for a corporation and have been tasked to manage the company's Facebook initiative. You likely face internal battles to convey how Facebook could help the company, but you know there's real potential.

  • The Experienced Social Media User: You've been using Facebook for a while, but want better results. You're ready to take your business to a whole new level by following the proven tactics of the pros and leveraging new techniques. Better response. Less work. More profitability.

If you find yourself in any of the above categories, Facebook Success Summit 2010 is an event you don't want to miss.


How It Works

Studies frequently show people who attend such professional development events are more successful, reach their business goals faster, enjoy their work more, build better relationships and earn a higher income!

1. Though this summit will take place online, it will be a live event.

The instructors will be presenting their sessions live in real time, right on your computer screen. You can listen and watch their presentations, and speak directly to the experts, asking questions and getting instant answers.

When you register, you'll be given a link and access information for each session. When the date and time arrive, you simply pull up your web browser, go to a web page, type in your log-in information and, voilà, you're "there." It's the virtual equivalent of walking into a room at a live conference and sitting down!

2. You can interact live with the presenters.

That means you can actually speak with the social media superstars.

During each session, you'll hear and see the lessons (so be sure to turn on your computer speakers!). The virtual room also offers interactive capabilities beyond what is possible at live conferences. You can participate in instant polls and download presentation slide decks to print out for note-taking.

Just like regular conferences, most sessions last about an hour, and will offer an opportunity for live questions and answers.

If you want to ask a presenter a question, we'll provide a toll-free number you can dial. A real operator brings you on the line (like a radio talk show) and you speak directly to the experts!

We also provide a private LinkedIn group where you can interact with presenters and fellow attendees. You also get a downloadable video recording of each session and transcripts.

3. Of course, networking is a big part of this event...

Many people who attend our professional development summits report the relationships they establish with fellow attendees are priceless… relationships that often continue to be a source of advice and support for years to come.

Between sessions, you can network with other summit attendees on the exclusive Facebook Success Summit 2010 LinkedIn Group—available ONLY to event registrants (our last event had 1500 people networking in our LinkedIn group).

You also get access to Twitter-based chat rooms where you can interact live with your peers.

We'll provide a certificate of achievement for attendees who successfully complete the summit.

This event was designed by marketers for marketers. That means we built it to accommodate your busy schedule. We've spread the summit out over 4 weeks, with multiple sessions each week.

You don't have to stop working to attend (AND you can begin applying what you'll discover immediately). The audio and video from each session are recorded, and transcripts are included for further study.

"Attend" Any or ALL of the Following Sessions

At traditional summits and conferences, groups of sessions are often held at the same time, so it's impossible to attend them all.

Not this summit.

When you register, you'll be able to take advantage of EVERY business-building opportunity. Even better, after the summit you can download a video recording of each and every session. If you miss a live session, we'll provide you a recording AND transcript for FREE.
