Our quarterly 2-Day Social Media Boot Camp, which has been consistently top-rated for the past few years that we’ve done it, is coming up once again on October 25th and 26th. It will be from 9am to 5 pm each day, at our training facility in Cincinnati, OH.
By now, most companies realize that social media is one of the most powerful marketing tools they can use, and businesses across the globe are struggling to develop a social media strategy that actually gets results.
We’ve worked with top companies including Macy’s, P&G, and GE, and have helped many corporations establish effective social media strategies by giving them personal corporate training. But we also have plenty of professionals, representing corporations like Verizon and Capital One, that have come to our 2-Day Boot Camp and have been able to implement everything they’ve learned to get better results for their companies.
We believe the same is true of you and your company, so we wanted to share with you 5 reasons why your boss would be making a smart decision by sending you to our exclusive and top-rated 2 Day Social Media Boot Camp.
#1: The Issue Is No Longer If Social Media’s Worth It – It’s What to Do With It
Social media has exploded within the past few years, especially in the past couple of years. The statistics prove that social media and Internet marketing are absolutely necessary if a company wants to get ahead – 92% of people go directly to the Internet to provide them with help when they have to make a purchasing decision. Unless your boss has his or her head buried in the ground, they should know that their job isn’t deciding if social media is worth it – their job is deciding exactly how to take action and get results from the infinite number of marketing opportunities that social media and Internet marking have to offer.
#2: Social Networkers Are Big Spenders!
Your company is basically losing money if you don’t have an excellent and effective social media strategy. And studies have proven it – social media users who receive excellent customer service from brands spend an average of 21% more than non-social savvy customers – no matter what kind of product or service your company sells! Social media sites can really have an effect on your profits – consumers spend an average of 10% more and are 10 % more likely to purchase a product if they saw it on Pinterest… 59% of Pinterest users have purchased an item they saw on the site, and 33% of Facebook users have purcahsed an item they saw on their news feed or a friend’s wall. If your company is ignoring these statistics, you’re losing big time.
#3 Social Savvy Customers Do the Work For You!
Once your company has an effective and well thought-out social media plan, social networkers that purchase your product or service do the rest of the work for you! 55% of online consumers will share their purchases on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and other social networks. It has been psychologically proven that when it comes to advertising, consumers trust 2 things – people they know and people they don’t know. So instead of yelling at your customers via television or a billboard, get your company online and engaging with consumers, and they’ll start singing your praises to Facebookers, Tweeters, and Pinners – oh my!
#4 You Can Network with Other Companies Interested in Social Media
Our quarterly 2-Day Social Media Boot Camp draws in professionals from all over Cincinnati and the United States. You’ll get the chance to make connections with both representatives of huge corporations, as well as small business owners – and you never know who could end up really being a profitable connection. We offer an optional, complimentary happy hour at a popular Cincinnati bar downtown so that you get the chance to swap business cards and ideas with other attendees, as well as with us! …and we’ll admit it – we’re pretty well connected around here 😉
#5 You Leave With an Incredible Amount of Resources
We practically bombard you with all the resources we have to share – a social media guidebook for you to follow along during the course, copies of all the slides so that you can keep up and take notes on the side, templates that help you build a social media plan customized to your company, a copy of Krista Neher’s bestselling book The Social Media Field Guide – and more!
