A Social Media Success Summit 2011 is being held - completely online - from May 3 through May 26. You'll want to check this out right away because the 50% off sale ends Thursday, April 14th
On the Web site, it says that 96% of the people who attended the Social Media Success Summit 2010 would recommend it to a friend -- and attend again. Let's take a look at why that might be.
Having the conference spread out over two weeks means that you can sit down and focus on a session when it fits with your schedule. Remember, this conference is all online. That makes sense -- I mean, with social media being digital.
Twenty-four social media experts will offer presentations during this conference. Most have written books, and all are active social media pros. There will be a large corporate B2B and B2C presence as well -- you'll hear from Cisco, Intel, Boeing, Verizon, and Timex (The same Timex that has kept on ticking, like forever?). During the conference, you can communicate live with presenters -- the Summit is not using chat boxes.
A private, exclusive LinkedIn group will be formed of conference attendees. Following the 2010 Summit, about 1600 LinkedIn members who had attended the conference joined the Summit's LinkedIn group.
Here are two conference objectives you might be interested in. Learn how to track and measure your social media research ROI. Explore how to create a successful social media initiative from experts who take you through the steps of successful campaigns.
If you sign up to receive email information about the Social Media Success Summit, you can receive a FREE session from last year's summit. But there's more. Your free sample includes a nifty PowerPoint of the session presentation, the transcript from the session, and a video used in the session. If this is an example of how this group performs, I'm impressed. Thorough. Interesting. Timely.
