Social media connects people around the world, through a post, a video, the sharing of photos and even a comment. Social media connects families and friends and connects businesses and brands to the consumers that want and need their products and services.
Social media is integrated into our lives to the point that checking Facebook and Twitter is more of a constant for some than eating or sleeping. (Really? OK, maybe it’s just me!)
We could not have a Rocks Digital Marketing Conference or Social Media Day celebration without having a Social Media track. This year’s breakouts will take you down a path that includes visual storytelling, using social media to reach local consumers, and how to use metrics to measure what social media marketing efforts are actually working. Intrigued? Keep reading.
The Power of Social and Local Connection to the Bottom Line
Social media is overcrowded, so one of the best ways for a business to reach their customer is by targeting the local market. Instead of shooting blanks and hitting everyone on Facebook, go local and build up a fan base that converts consumers to brand ambassadors, advocates, and sales. Karen Liz Albert is guaranteed to teach you how to better connect locally. Meet Karen.

In this Social Media World, Video is Worth a Million Words
