Want to win a free ticket to the largest online social media event of the year?
Social Media Examiner has worked hard to bring you our third-annual Social Media Success Summit. This is our best event ever! And we’ve come up with a fun way to get you involved.
First, what is this event?
Social Media Success Summit 2011 is a large online conference dedicated to help businesses master social media marketing.
More than 1400 businesses have already signed up, including Microsoft, General Mills, Honda, Tyco, IEEE, SAP, Wells Fargo, Warner Music Group, Timex, Junior Achievement, SAP, LexisNexis, Stonyfield Farm, Cisco, Mayo Clinic, Coca-Cola and hundreds of smaller businesses.
As of March 2011, Social Media Examiner has 59,000 email subscribers, 33,000 Facebook fans, over 60 writers and half a million page views per month.
In addition, the site has generated almost $2 million in sales; ranks among the top 12 websites on two Technorati lists – business and small business; and ranks among the top 1,500 websites in the entire United States, according to Alexa.

When setting up the event as an organizer, I highly recommend you leave all the default settings the way they are – that is, allow guests to invite others, upload photos, write on the wall, etc. The reason is that every one of these activities creates news items that go out into the feeds of those individuals and their friends. This is great viral visibility for you and for them. Here is an example of all options you want to check:
