"With today's tight marketing budgets, making effective and efficient use of the social web is more important than ever," said Ernest Nicastro, principal with What's Working NOW. "And when it comes to offering actionable advice on how to use social networking and social media to grow a business few people are as qualified as Scott Allen."
Mr. Allen will also present and discuss several examples and case studies including -
- How a simple LinkedIn profile update helped one businessman earn a $5,000 commission
- Social media tactics and strategies used by a startup t-shirt retailer to build "brand love" with
nearly a million Twitter followers and almost 100,000 Facebook fans
- How a British car insurance comparison site leveraged YouTube and Facebook to increase
search engine traffic by more than 300% in 3 months while generating a 90% increase in
insurance quotes over the same period in the prior year
"People want to know the secret behind social media success," said Allen. But the secret is that there is no secret! All of your real-world skills and strategies can translate to the virtual world. The problem is that it's not always obvious how to do that. Also, there's a lot of junk out there, and there's a strong temptation to imitate what you see others doing - even if you don't know whether or not it's working.
Continued Allen, "In this webinar I'll debunk the junk and hype and offer people proven best practices for using social networking and social media to increase bottom line results. Our attendees will come away from the program with actionable tactics and strategies they can start putting to work right away."
