Hi Firstname,

Have you heard the buzz about Small Biz Success Summit 2012–the web’s largest online social media marketing conference just for small businesses? [link title to event]

Before I tell you how this online conference will help your small business gain more exposure and increase your sales, let me share a story with you.

PROOF SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING WORKS:

Two years ago Michael Stelzner started a blog for marketers and small business owners called Social Media Examiner. His mission was to create outstanding content and enable readers to spread the word with social media.

He had practically no budget–just a dream. Now, two years later, Michael has built one of the world’s top business blogs. More than 450,000 people visit monthly and 64,000 active Facebook fans interact on his company’s wall. His business has also generated millions in revenue.

What’s his secret? Smart social media marketing.

Michael’s story is not unique. A significant 61% percent of small businesses are landing new customers through social media activities (Social Media Marketing Industry Report)!

Your current and future customers are using social media every day. Nielson recently found 80% of Americans are using social media at least monthly.

It’s a new marketing frontier because social media bypasses costly middlemen, allowing you to directly engage with your future customers! This presents an enormous opportunity for your small business.

SO WHAT’S THIS ABOUT?

Michael (and his team) have been working for months to bring the best small business social media minds together for a fully online event called Small Biz Success Summit 2012 [link to event and change URL in image].

A significant 3000 marketers and business owners from around the world attended his Success Summit last summer. Businesses were transformed. In fact, 99% of attendees said they’d attend again.

This new summit is all about small business. Its focus is to empower you to implement successful social media tactics, track and measure your social media activities, and see how successful social media campaigns were executed.

Twenty-eight of the world’s leading small business social media pros will be summit instructors–and all of them are small business owners.

Presenters include John Jantsch (author, Duct Tape Marketing), Anita Campbell (founder, Small Business Trends), Michael Stelzner (founder, Social Media Examiner and author, Launch), Mari Smith (co-author, Facebook Marketing), Jesse Stay (author, Google+ for Dummies), Hollis Thomases (author, Twitter Marketing), David Siteman Garland (founder, “The Rise to the Top” and author, Smarter, Faster, Cheaper), Joe Pulizzi (founder, Content Marketing Institute and co-author, Get Content, Get Customers), Brian Clark (founder, Copyblogger Media), Lee Odden (founder, TopRank Online Marketing), Ramon Ray (founder, Small Biz Technology and author, Technology Solutions for Growing Businesses) and Lewis Howes (co-author, LinkedWorking)–just to mention a few.

This is the world’s largest online small business social media event designed to empower you with actionable social media tips, techniques and strategy. And the great news is it’s a live online conference you can attend from your home or office.
