As speakers you can spend buckets of money on advertising, clicks, and likes. Then there are the other marketing methods, and association fees, dinners, lunches, conferences to attend, and the advertisers who call us. How can social media help us to make the most of all that, and what does it REALLY cost to get a click, like, or share?
What does it mean to re-purpose content, and can I get away with it? What is a content marketing strategy, and editorial calendar, and do I need one? Can I buy one somewhere and put it to work for me?
This session will provide you with information you need to make the most out of your social media efforts, a handful of tools to help you get the most out of it, and a strategy to maximize your marketing plan.
