P.S. In case you're wondering, social media marketing involves engaging people with online social networks to generate exposure, increase traffic, improve search rankings, build strong customer advocates, generate quality leads and grow sales.

P.P.S. Can I be blunt? Studies show that people prefer to work with businesses that have a strong social media presence. It's not too late to get your small business engaged with customers and prospects via social media. But if you wait, you'll be giving your competitors a significant advantage that'll be hard to overcome.

P.P.P.S. You don't need to do this alone. If you like the thought of joining a welcoming community of like-minded peers (our summer summit sold out with 3000 attendees) who'll share their experiences and wisdom as you journey together down this road, keep reading...

Proof That Social Media Means Business

Watch video from Michael Stelzner

You're familiar with social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. But do you know the impact social media is having on businesses?

Just consider these interesting factoids:
  • Mass consumer adoption of social media: There are more than 800 million active Facebook users, 80% of all Americans use a social network and Americans spend more time on Facebook than any other U.S. website (Nielson). Your customers are there. These are numbers you just cannot ignore.

  • Small businesses see big results with social media: A significant 61% percent of small businesses are landing new customers through social media activities (Crowdspring). Plus, more than 70% of small businesses using social media see increased traffic and more than 60% improve search rankings (2011 Social Media Marketing Industry Report).

  • Smaller businesses find social media costs very low: Nearly 60% of small- and mid-sized businesses spend less than $100 to market via social media (Marketing in a Digital World, Zoomerang).

And these recent statistics are just a small sampling of the power of social media.

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

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

That's what the Small Biz Success Summit 2012 is all about. We've brought together the most successful small business social media 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, turbo-boosting your lead generation, enhancing your image in your industry and improving sales, secure your spot at this conference today.

Is the Small Biz Success Summit 2012 a Fit for You?

First, you don't need to be a techno-geek or twenty-something to use and benefit from social media. You might be surprised to learn that many social media marketers are aged 30 to 60.

If you find yourself in one of the categories below, the Small Biz Success Summit 2012 is a fit for you:

  • The Small Business Owner: You're the boss—likely a consultant, coach, local business owner, writer, agent, blogger, artist or general "gun for hire"—and understand the value of social media, but want to speed your path to success with the least effort and the greatest return.

  • The Marketer: You work for a small business and have been asked to help with the company's social media activities. People are pinning their hopes on you. You want to implement the best tactics to help your company grow and don't have a moment to waste.

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

If you find yourself in any of the above categories, Small Biz Success Summit 2012 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!

Here's how this event works:

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 pros.

During each session, you'll hear and see the sessions (so be sure to turn on your computer speakers!). The virtual room also offers interactive capabilities beyond what's 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, sessions last 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 live operator brings you on the line (like a radio talk show) and you speak directly to the experts!


During live sessions, you can dial a toll-free number and speak live with presenters.

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 with transcripts!

Session recordings can be streamed online using a computer, iPhone, iPad or other HTML-5 enabled mobile device—or downloaded to your desktop for playback.

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


Our summits have active private LinkedIn groups for discussion and networking.

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" Small Biz Success Summit 2012 LinkedIn group—available ONLY to event registrants (at one of our prior events, more than 1600 people networked in our private group).

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

4. Designed to fit your busy schedule!

This event was designed by small business owners for small business owners. 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 video recordings from each session are provided, and transcripts are included for further study.


Each live session is available for playback and downloading the same day, at no added charge.

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


"Attend" Any or ALL of the Following Sessions

At traditional 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, if you miss a live session, we'll provide you a recording AND transcript for FREE.
