January 2013 – CES

Social Media Bootcamp * PMA@CES 2013 – Las Vegas, NV

In this increasingly “social” world, we can all use a little help. Attend the DIMA and PSPA/SPAA Conferences and take part in one segment or all four of the social media bootcamp led by social media marketing maven, Georgia McCabe. A member of the photo industry for years, Georgia is the leading authority on social media strategy and technology for photographers around the world.

You won’t want to miss these sessions on Monday, January 7, 2013

Part I: Why you need social media
There is no escaping that conversations are taking place online. Google and Facebook are the two most popular networks where a business is searched for first. So, you can either let conversations take place without you (and lose big), or you can contribute value and build critical relationships by participating.

Part II: Strategies for finding (and keeping) superfans
The days of simply collecting “likes” are gone. The mantra for 2013 is all about quality vs. quantity. Learn how different types of content strategies create different levels of engagement and lead to greater conversations and stronger relationships.

Part III: Developing your tactical social media plan for 2013
Attend this session and learn the top 20 tactics you should have on your plan, ranging from SEO to website review and design, blogging and emailing.

Part IV: Measuring, adjusting and celebrating your success!
How will you know if you’ve reached your destination if you don’t know where you’re going? Just like the mile signs on the highway tell the distance between you and your destination, measurement tools and analysis of your social presence will yield the same important information.
