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.
Twenty-three of the world’s most respected social media experts will share their strategies with you. Hear from Jeremiah Owyang (Altimeter Group), Guy Kawasaki (author, Enchantment), Brian Solis (author, Engage), Frank Eliason (Citigroup), Mari Smith (co-author, Facebook Marketing), Erik Qualman (author, Socialnomics), Michael Stelzner (founder, Social Media Examiner), Dan Zarrella (author, The Social Media Marketing Book), Andy Sernovitz (author, Word of Mouth Marketing), David Meerman Scott (author, Real-Time Marketing & PR), Jay Baer (co-author, The Now Revolution), Hollis Thomases (author, Twitter Marketing), Steve Garfield (author, Get Seen), Mario Sundar (LinkedIn), and Ann Handley (MarketingProfs)—as well as experts from Intel, Cisco, Timex, Boeing and Verizon.
Presentation topics include developing a social media strategy, finding and engaging your target audience, measuring success and customer service (just to mention a few!). Check out all the sessions.
At last year’s summit, 96% of attendees said they’d recommend the event to a friend and attend again.
