Summer Socializing

Have you been socializing with us this summer?

If you have, you've been busy! But if you haven't, or you missed any of our Social Media Summer Series, it's never too late to join the party.


What's the Social Media Summer Series? It's eight online seminars led by eight thought leaders in social media marketing. And all are available on demand after broadcast.

This Thursday, I'm very excited to host my friend Kristina Halvorson as part of the series.

Kristina, author of Content Strategy for the Web, will be giving you the skinny on how to produce and deliver online content that doesn't... well, stink.

As Kristina will tell you: No matter which channels you pick for marketing (SEO, social communities, your website) if your content is awful, you've wasted your money on everything else.

Kristina, by the way, has also been a great sounding board for the book I'm writing on content.

So I know first-hand that she's the real deal when it comes to smart advice!

Thanks for stopping by, as always. See you Thursday?
