Join the Web’s biggest social media event featuring Guy Kawasaki and some of the world’s thought leaders in the social-media realm…

I recently registered for the Michael Stelzner/SocialMediaExaminer.com Social Media Success Summit 2010 after having participated in an incredible lead-in introduction Webinar for the summit. (Michael is the guy who really did write the book on white papers!) I was blown away by how much information the participating summit experts shared and realized how powerful this online/summit conference is going to be and did not hesitate to enroll. I’ve already discussed this with some of you and was asked to provide more information when I got it as this is bound to be of great interest to many others. This post includes LOTS of info because this is a lot to share plus I’ve included a special link for the special $297 price (a 50% discount!) that is good just through April 15, 2010.

The Michael Stelzner summit I was part of in late 2008 FAR exceeded my expectations, and this one promises to be bigger and better and it’s on a subject that is changing almost daily: social media. It is anticipated to be the world’s biggest online event designed to empower marketers and small business owners to master social media marketing. And the great news is that it’s a live, online conference with these experts that you can attend from your home or office—and even catch up on the Web if you need to miss a session.

This summit offers all of us an ideal opportunity to maximize the benefits from all of the combinations and permutations of the social-media mix (including some elements and tactics that may be entirely new to many of us) whether you are on the agency side or the client side. Even though one of the services I provide is helping clients with social media strategy and execution, I really feel that almost everyone should have the information contained in this summit to help realize the potential and implement their plans.

Michael Stelzner and his team have been working for months to bring the best minds in social media marketing together in an event called Social Media Success Summit that features 24 of the world’s leading social media superstars as summit instructors with the legendary Guy Kawasaki as the keynote speaker.

The summit features Guy Kawasaki (author, Art of the Start), Chris Brogan (author, Social Media 101), Darren Rowse (author, ProBlogger), Mari Smith (author, Facebook Marketing), experts from Best Buy, Home Depot, Whole Foods, FoursquareGroupon; Steve Rubel (Edelman), Ann Handley (MarketingProfs), Brian Clark (Copyblogger), Greg Jarboe (author, YouTube and Video Marketing), Kim Dushinski (author, Mobile Marketing Handbook), Jason Falls (Social Media Explorer), Jay Baer (Convince & Convert), and Ramon De Leon (Chicago Domino’s Pizza)—just to mention some. Together, this team of “who’s who” in social media will help you succeed using practical tactics.

Last year, nearly 1,000 marketers and small business owners from around the world attended the 2009 summit, and it was a smash hit. Businesses were transformed. In fact, 97% of attendees said they’d attend again.

This year’s focus is to empower you to build social media marketing plans, track your social media results and learn from other successful businesses. You’ll also discover how to use Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Foursquare, and Groupon to attract high-caliber customers and grow your business during this economic slump.

PROOF SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING WORKS…

A few months ago, Michael Stelzner founded a site called Social Media Examiner. He relied 100% on social media tactics to drive traffic to his site.

In less than five months, he was declared the #1 small business blog in the world by Technorati, added more than 13,000 email subscribers, brought nearly 100,000 people a month to his site and is ranked as one of the top 4,700 Web sites in all of America by Alexa.

He didn’t advertise, didn’t rely on the press and almost none of his traffic is coming from search engines. Nearly overnight, his site has become a top destination for businesses.

This all took place via social media. He simply leveraged the power of sites like Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn to deliver the kind of results that would’ve cost him a fortune in the past. He didn’t spend a dime on marketing—just his time.

Not only can you gain amazing exposure for your business with social media marketing, you’ll also generate traffic, increase sales, gain qualified leads, and build new partnerships.

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU

First, you don’t need to be a techno-geek or twenty-something to use and benefit from social media. You might be surprised to learn that most social media marketers are aged 30 to 60 and have only been using social media for a few months. In fact, even traditional businesses like Ford Motor Company, Clorox, and State Farm Insurance are heavily focused on social media.

Social Media Success Summit 2010 will help you discover the best ways to market your business using social media. You’ll also learn how successful social media campaigns were executed and how you can achieve similar results using no-cost social media tactics.

One thing I found valuable after I participated in the 2008 Stelzner summit was that participants were able to join an online community of like-minded women and men at no additional cost. Many of them freely shared their sometimes-remarkable experiences and wisdom with each other with a pay-it-forward type of mentality–and there will be a counterpart to that online community for those who participate in this summit.

I am looking forward to this–and I think you will, too, once you’ve had a chance to check out the agenda and the possibilities! All of the sessions, dates, and times are detailed as are the payment options, etc., by clicking through one of the links above.

P.S. As a way of saying “thanks” for checking out the summit, they’ve included a gift just for marketers called “How to Grow and Engage an Audience on Twitter” (valued at $42). It, too, is waiting for you here
