Want to win a free membership in the Social Media Marketing Society?
Social Media Examiner has launched an exclusive new membership community designed to keep marketers like you on the leading edge of social media.
And we've come up with two fun ways for you to get involved.
First, what is the Society?
The Social Media Marketing Society is a place where busy marketers and business owners get training to keep up with the latest in social media marketing.
The Society will help you discover new ideas, avoid trial and error, implement the newest social tactics and find what works best with social media marketing.
Watch this video for a quick overview.
The Conference You've Been Waiting For
As a small business marketer, you can probably only pick one or two events to attend each year. Get an unbeatable conference experience and expert training at Social Media Marketing World in sunny San Diego, California—from your friends at Social Media Examiner.

Here’s what's included:
#1: Exclusive Training: As a Society member, you'll receive highly tactical (and live) training on the latest in social media marketing, delivered to you three times every month, no matter where you are.
Here's what Society member Diane Carson had to say, “I have been following Social Media Examiner for many years and have come to trust the high quality information that cuts through all the clutter about social media and provides me with some nuggets that I can put to use to help my clients.”
We’ll show you, step-by-step, how to implement the latest in social media marketing using Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and beyond.
#2: Community of Marketers: The Society is much more than just a place where you’ll receive top-notch marketing training. You’ll also be able to network with fellow marketers just like you.
Connect with your peers in our online forums and live Society Hangouts.
Society member Carol Hartmann said, “I think it is essential to reach out to others online who are outside your professional circle, share content, and create engaging conversations.”
Attention Agency Owners, Brand Marketers, and Consultants

How can you win a one-year membership?
There are two spots up for grabs and two ways to win:
#1: Twitter Entry
Simply click the button on the right or tweet what you see below for a chance to win one ticket:
You can tweet up to two times per day. Each tweet is an entry to win.
All tweets must have the #winSMMS15 hashtag included.
We'll randomly draw one winner who will be awarded a free year of membership in the Society.
#2: Written Entry
Simply write about your biggest social media marketing challenge and why you should win a free Society membership. Post your entry in the comments box below (scroll down).
Our judges will select one winner who will be awarded a free year of membership in the Social Media Marketing Society, PLUS a mention in the Social Media Examiner newsletter (390,000+ subscribers)!
The judges—Phil Mershon (Director of Events & Operations, Social Media Examiner), Leslie Samuel (Senior Manager-Social Media Marketing Society, Social Media Examiner), and Erik Fisher (Community Manager, Social Media Examiner)—will select the winning entry. Their decisions are subjective and final.
What you need to know:
- You can enter to win either or both prizes.

- The entry deadline is Tuesday, June 30, 2015, and the winners will be announced in early July.
- If you've already registered for Society membership, no worries. If you win, we'll give you a full refund. (In fact, we encourage you to join, since enrollment will close before the contest winners are announced and won't open again until 2016).
- No purchase is necessary to win.
We look forward to seeing your written entries and tweets.
