Is This Event Really Worth It?
Not sure if Social Media Marketing World is right for you?
Let’s see what other smart marketers who have attended past Social Media Marketing World conferences have to say:
Here are some words from attendees (your results may vary):
“Unless you've been here, you can't know how incredibly life changing it can be for your business. It is by far, bar none, the best content driven conference I have ever been to,” said Sarah Brodie.
“I got what I was looking for!!! Excellent content, very well organized, great atmosphere. I couldn't ask for more,” said Hayut Yogev.
“Within minutes, I knew I had made a great decision. The speakers and attendees were some of the most distinguished people in social media sharing knowledge gleaned first-hand. The connections I made and the information in the sessions have paid off tenfold for me and my team,” said Noah Stanley.
“If someone asked me if they could only go to one conference a year, where would it be? I would say it has to be Social Media Marketing World. Best self-investment you will ever make,“ said Matthew David Smith.
“The knowledge I gained will make the event pay for itself! I will BEG my boss to send me back next year! Thanks SME!!” said Julie Lowe.
“I've told myself that I could learn whatever I needed to know, virtually. Boy was I ever wrong. It took me 4 years to finally attend SMMW but now I won't miss it. Meeting in ‘real life' is important!” said Jennifer Lehner.
“Outstanding job — this is one of the most well-executed, high class conferences I have attended,” said Lisa McManus.
“I learned more about social media in those 2 days than I have in the past 2 years! It inspired me to do more, and I can't wait to get started!” said Kim Pekin.
“The quality of the content and speakers were a huge draw. They gave practical tips that I can implement in my everyday work — not high level theory,” said Ashley Levesque.
“I loved everything but I was so surprised at how much I got out of things that happened outside the sessions – the networking and amazing people I met were incredible,” said Darnelle O'Brien.
“Getting to put ‘Faces to Twitter Handles' was wonderful. Bringing those friendships from online and into real life deepened the entire experience for me,” said Brad Ouldhouse.
“I thought I would feel like a newbie, but everyone I met seemed to be just like me,” said Kelli Thompson.
“The attention to detail and quality is amazing and I will continue to recommend SMMW as one of a handful of ‘must-attend' events,” said Lee Odden.
“Although it was a lot of info for two days, I didn't feel drained at the end of the day, just motivated! I also liked that it wasn't a sales pitch for each speaker like some conferences I have attended,” said Angela Morris.
“My favorite thing was the format. Some conferences can be boring — not SMMW! I didn't know who many of the speakers were before the event, but I was stunned to learn during and after SMMW how well known and knowledgeable many of them were,” said Dave Woods.
“The location was fantastic, and the content was invaluable. It's amazing to be surrounded by other social managers who are immersed in the same world I am,” said Madison Dennis.
“Loved that the speakers weren't hiding between sessions rather networking and engaging with everyone,” said Brian Fanzo.
“The content and speakers were top-notch. I loved all the actionable take-aways in every presentation. It was worth every penny!” said Katie Lance.
“The mindset, openness and amount of time your experts gave to us was head and shoulders above other conferences. I will bring multiple members of my staff next year,” said Noah Stanley.
“I enjoyed every minute of the conference. Any other conference I attend is going to have major expectations to beat!” said Sarah Hanford.
“I LOVE this conference so much. I'm not a gushy person… but I gush about SMMW. I appreciate the above and beyond effort to connect people. No one feels alone or left out. I made so many friends last year… more this year, and I can't imagine ever missing a SMMW,” said Molly Marshall.
“The sessions provided actual usable knowledge, not a sales pitch or high-level fluff. That's so unusual to find in a conference and extraordinarily valuable,” said Holly Chessman.
“I met people who will be lifelong friends,” said Chris White.
“This is far and away the best run, most value packed event I have ever been to in my life. And the amazing thing is that I've said that exact same thing for the last three years running,” said Mark Mason.
“I really appreciated the focus your team put on networking and making it easier to break the ice,” said Grace Taylor Segal.
“The staff was SO helpful — excellent and fun. This was an awesome conference for someone in a nontraditional industry (accounting) — really looking forward to next year,” said Ashley Levesque.
“More ideas come to mind during these few days than the rest of the year in the office. It's hard to leave the “bubble” of SMMW and go back!” said Tara Luther.
“Some of the best sessions I have ever attended in my entire life and gave me so many ideas for my company,” said Stacey Axler.
“The social media rock star firepower takes it from a “should attend” to a “CANNOT MISS” event,” said Monique Ramsey.
“I loved everything but the chance to meet fellow social media folks was fantastic!” said Rebecca Kowalewicz.
“Not only was the content phenomenal – your entire team was so welcoming and treated each attendee like a special guest in their home,” said Katie Lance.
“I have my ticket for next year and signed up my boss!“ said Pam Kostelecky.
“The conference is expensive, but worth it–very valuable to our business. Already booked three tickets for next year,” said Kellie Nolna.
“I have pages and pages of notes with strong takeaways to put in place from the excellent speakers,” said Alexandra Briggs.
“I personally thought that the table talks were genius. So easy to find people who are invested in the same interests. Networking goldmine!” said Rebecca Moore.
“This was by far one of the best conferences I've ever attended, based on the high level of speakers and sessions. All of the sessions I attended were full of specific, useful content, NOT generic advice or mid-level admins giving their case studies (which I often see),” said Lindsay Nyquist.
