Did You Catch Digital Marketing World?

The first in our new monthly series of free online marketing events took place last Wednesday. Were you there? I hope so, because it really was a great event! (See what participants said on Twitter about it.)


If you couldn't make it, well... catch the next Digital Marketing World, which happens August 4, or watch for others on the first Wednesday of each month (11:30am ET to 4:30pm ET). Drop by for:

* Three new 60-minute presentations from real-world practitioners
* Plenty of live Q&A time with speakers
* Guidance on the latest tools and strategies from leading vendors.
* Ample networking opportunities with your peers
* A full-featured virtual conference environment with networking lounge, exhibit hall, and resource center

The August 4th event focuses on social media, with presentations on metrics, content, and social media strategy for B2B companies. Check out the agenda.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, you really do have to sign up to participate! So please do. See you there!
