Become the Social Media Marketing Hero for Your Business
Meet your secret team that makes you look like a social media genius and empowers you to embrace change.
If you’re a community manager, marketer, or consultant who’s struggling to keep up with the ever-changing updates from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Messenger, YouTube, and beyond, then welcome!
Welcome to a place where you’re not alone, where we feel your pain, and where you’ll find the help you need. Welcome to the Social Media Marketing Society.
Are you ready for the coming change?
Facebook has hinted that major changes are coming to their platforms. Stories-based video will begin dominating feeds. Only social activities that result in meaningful interactions will be seen by your fans. Embracing Messenger-based marketing will become more important as Facebook encourages more private communications.
And let’s not overlook the emergence of LinkedIn video and the growing dominance of YouTube.
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.

We’re a genuine community of marketers—people just like you. And we’re here to support you.
Think of us as your career insurance policy. We keep you focused on what matters. We make sure you won’t be left behind as the changes keep coming.

You’ll discover new tactics, get your questions answered, and develop a true competence to tackle change, head on.
“With all the changes that take place on social media platforms every day, I’m grateful for the Society and the support it provides. The Society provides a pool of wisdom that keeps professionals informed and learning,” said member Kellie Moeller.

- Downloadable slide decks

“Finding time to get to the training is difficult for me, but it is really great that they’re recorded so I can go back as I need things. There’s a library for me to access,” said member Kelly Mirabella.
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 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.
What will I receive every month as a member?
When you join the Social Media Marketing Society you’ll have access to three original training workshops every month. You’ll also have access to the recordings of ALL prior training workshops as long as you keep your membership active.
You’ll gain exclusive access to our Facebook group where you can connect with peers and get your social media marketing questions answered.
Society members who attend Social Media Marketing World (our annual conference in San Diego) will enjoy special conference benefits including exclusive meetups.
How do I watch the live workshops?
You simply log in to our member website and follow the instructions we provide. You’ll be able to view the live training workshops on a computer or mobile device. We also stream workshops live into our Facebook group.
I can’t attend all the live training workshops. Will I get a recording?
Yes. For each training workshop we’ll provide a recording you can watch online via your computer, tablet, or mobile device, so you won’t miss a thing.
If you have other commitments (like a day job) or if a workshop occurs at an inconvenient time, no need to worry. Even if you attend a live training workshop, you’ll still get the recording. You’ll have access to recordings for as long as you maintain your membership.
How do I watch the playbacks of training workshops?
You simply log in to our membership website. There you’ll find streaming videos you can play back from a desktop or mobile device. Downloadable transcripts, slide decks and audio files are also provided.
Will there be transcripts?
Yes. We’ll provide transcripts of each workshop as Adobe PDF files. This will allow you to study and scan the content of each training.
How can I ask questions?
Two ways. First, during the live training workshops, you’ll be able to submit questions during the Q&A portion of each workshop. If you are selected we will bring you on live to ask your question. Second, you can post questions in our exclusive Facebook group to get answers from your peers and the experts.
Where is the event located?
At your home or office. Since this is online training, there is no physical venue and no travel expenses. And you’ll get the recordings, so if you miss a live workshop, no worries.
How long are the training workshops?
Each of the workshops is 60 to 90 minutes in duration.
What if I still have questions?
Send an email here and we’ll get back to you right away.
