If you’re a community manager, marketer, or consultant who’s struggling to keep up with the ever-changing updates from Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn, Messenger, and beyond, then welcome!
Welcome to a place where you’re not alone, where we feel your pain, and where we strive to help you. With the social media landscape shifting moment-by-moment, we can all use a little extra help.
Are you prepared for the future of social marketing?
Have these changing times forced you to rethink your marketing? With economic uncertainty, customers are reluctant to purchase. Add to this declining organic reach and the rising costs of social ads, now is the time for marketers to diversify. The “tried and true” methods of the past need to be replaced with new strategies.
For you, that could mean platform diversification, trying new media (like video), or exploring brand-new frontiers (like TikTok).
Do you need to do more with YouTube, Instagram, or even LinkedIn?
If your business counts on you to navigate the social media changes while improving exposure, driving more traffic, and developing loyal fans, we know your struggle.

Here’s What Your Peers Say:
“I have been a member of the Society for five years now. The Society is always a great place for me to go and ask my questions. They work really hard to make sure that there is no question that goes unanswered. The biggest impact that it’s had is probably peace of mind.” – Claudia Sheridan
“I joined the Social Media Marketing Society four years ago, and I wanted to gain knowledge. You go there, you ask a question, you get responses like instantly, and that’s where I gained my knowledge. People have very expert-level knowledge on what you need to know.” – Jenna Maloney
“I’m the go-to person everybody comes to with their social media questions, and sometimes I don’t have the answers. The Facebook group alone is worth the cost of membership. You get multiple answers from multiple experts, from different verticals, and that has been the biggest impact for me. Everything else, in my mind, is a total bonus. But the community is outstanding.” – Meg Brunson
“When I became familiar with the Society, it was like all of my prayers had been answered as a consultant. It’s a community of people who have diverse backgrounds of skills and knowledge and experience. [The trainers are] the people you’re seeing at Social Media Marketing World onstage. They know what they’re talking about, they’re vetted, and they have the experience and the knowledge that you can trust, so you don’t have to worry” – Luann Edwards

I look forward to seeing you in the Social Media Marketing Society.
Common questions answered
The live workshops don’t fit my schedule. Can I watch them another time?

Not only can you watch these videos trainings over and over, but we also provide:
- Downloadable slide decks

I’m a social media marketing novice. Will the Society sessions be way over my head?
Everyone’s a novice when everything’s changing.
The old ways don’t work, so in some regards, we’re all restarting the adventure, over and over.
While Society instructors are experts, they work hard to answer your questions. We typically commit at least 30 minutes in each workshop to your questions.
We staff our Facebook group to ensure no question goes unanswered. We also have a very supportive community of members who are glad to answer questions.
So while the Society is ideal for the advanced marketer whose job is heavily focused on social media, even a beginner will find value.
