Discover the best social media marketing techniques from the world’s top experts
Experience three phenomenal days with the best social marketers, discover the latest tactics, and master social media in 2019.
Join 7,000 fellow marketers and influencers at the mega-conference designed to empower you with business-building ideas—brought to you by Social Media Examiner.
Here’s who this event was designed for:
#1: The social media marketing professional: If your job is to manage social media marketing, but you’re struggling to keep up with the ever-changing nature of social marketing, this event is for you. You’ll be amazed how many people you connect with who are are just like you.
What makes Social Media Marketing World so unique are the attendees. Most either own or work for businesses with fewer than 100 employees. These are people just like you who are success driven, looking to connect with others, and enjoy having fun.
We also attract plenty of marketers from big businesses. For example, in 2018 marketers attended from BASF, Best Buy, Bose, CBS, Caterpillar, Cisco, Colgate Palmolive, Dell, Deloitte, Experian, Facebook, GE, HarperCollins, Hershey Company, Honeywell, Lands’ End, LinkedIn, Lockheed Martin, Microsoft, Nissan, Northrop Grumman, SAP, Snap-on, Southwest Airlines, Sprint, U.S. Bank, and VMware.
This is a great opportunity to connect, share ideas, brainstorm, and amplify your social marketing with your peers, marketing professionals, and experts.
#2: Are you new to social marketing? If you’re relatively new to social media marketing, just know that the industry is in constant flux. This means even the most experienced marketer is often restarting the adventure, over and over. You have an opportunity to embrace the latest techniques at this event. So while this event is ideal for the experienced social marketer, even a beginner will find value.
Here’s why you should attend this conference:
#1: Discover advanced marketing ideas to accelerate your growth: Social Media Marketing World is the place where you’ll find the best insider secrets, the latest developments, tools that will help you grow your business, and where you’ll become a social marketing master.
