Get Your Social Presence in Shape at Social Media Marketing Boot Camp



This summer, mediabistro, SocialTimes and AllFacebook are hosting an online conference and workshop geared towards helping organizations and individuals alike optimize their social strategies. Social Media Marketing Bootcamp is an eight-week digital conference that takes place weekly on Thursdays from 2pm Р3:30pm EST. If attendees are busy at that time, sessions will also be archived in an online classroom to be viewed later, making it easy to participate even while balancing a hectic schedule.

With sessions covering everything from how to maintain a thriving lifestyle blog to how to implement audio and video into your social strategy, the conference is perfect for busy journalists already active in social media, but looking to bring their personal brands to the next level. Media bigwigs like Lockhart Steele, Guy Kawasaki and Charlene Li will all share their knowledge of the social sphere with participants through online workshops. Attendees will also go through a social media audit for information on their performance in the arena, as well as learn how to build a detailed and compelling social strategy.

For more information on Social Media Marketing Bootcamp, which runs June 9 РJuly 28, check out the program guide, or you can hurry up and register here; tickets are $399 ($375 for Avantguild members), but will be $499 after May 11th.
