Remarkable organizations get their marketing done for free by the most powerful marketing department on the planet—their committed fans.

More than 15 million businesses are active on social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. Unfortunately, they're all saying the same things to the same people. If you only engage in ordinary online outreach activities, you won't get noticed in an increasingly busy landscape where every brand is vying for attention and sales.

In this PRO seminar, you'll learn what makes up a remarkable campaign and what role word-of-mouth plays in campaign creation and success.


Julie Szabo has run web marketing campaigns for all kinds of clients—from national retailers and tech start-ups to not-for-profits.
