(A.K.A.) Why small business owners should care about Social Media Day
If you are a small business owner or entrepreneur you probably have some questions about social media. Have you ever wished you could “pick the brain” of a social media consultant – for free?
Maybe you've read some articles online and couldn't figure out how to apply the info to your business. Or perhaps you're just getting started and don't know which social networks you should be on – if any.
Social Media Day is on June 30, 2013 and it is the perfect chance to get your questions asked and answered in a casual setting! It’s a chance to meet face-to-face with social media thought-leaders in Lexington, KY, float ideas by them and possibly even meet your next social media manager or consultant.
Created by Mashable in 2010, these informal gatherings connect people who love to share their ideas on social media with locals looking for answers. If this sounds like fun to you, we'd love to see you at the Lexington, KY gathering for Social Media Day 2013! (Not in Lexington? Find a meetup in your area.)
