Are you in charge of social media marketing at your company? It’s a pretty fun job, right? You get to tweet and retweet, post fun content to Facebook, start interesting discussions on LinkedIn, and more. Or, maybe it’s not so fun anymore because you feel like you’re winging it and don’t have time to find, schedule, and post good content? Not to mention the time required to analyze results (the not-so-fun part) to know if your dedicated, yet Herculean efforts are paying off.

According to an Altimeter Group study, only 17% of the companies surveyed have a ‘mature’ social media marketing strategy in place. That’s not so unusual for small to medium sized businesses who are just getting the hang of things, but for large businesses this statistic is surprising, given the importance of social media to a company’s potential revenues.

If you’re in charge of marketing at your small-to-medium sized company, or own your own business, wouldn’t you want to have a clearly defined social media marketing strategy in place? It’s sort of a no-brainer but we get it, it seems overwhelming and there’s never time. And what the heck does search engine optimization have to do with social media, anyway?

If you’re eager to learn how to get the most out of your social media marketing efforts, then we invite you to watch the replay of this webinar. In an informal and playful webinar, the digital marketing experts at POP! media studio and Boulder SEO Marketing will show you how it’s done. Beth Powell and Chris Raulf presented customer case studies and success stories, shared project templates, and gave solid tips on developing and implementing a strategy that’s clearly aligned with your revenue goals.
