Nexcess, a leading provider of p erformance-optimized managed hosting, is sponsoring Social Mitten, Michigan’s foremost gathering of social media professionals, thought leaders, and marketing experts.

Gasper Rubino, Marketing Coordinator at Nexcess, will be at Social Mitten to talk about content management systems, the foundation of an effective business website. Gasper’s talk, which takes place at 3 PM, will cover a range of content management systems, including WordPress, Craft CMS, and ExpressionEngine.

Social Mitten takes place on September 22 at the Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center in East Lansing, MI. In its sixth year, Social Mitten brings together some of the nation’s leading social media influencers. Speaker presentations will cover topics from the power of social media to change the way customers and businesses relate to each other, to practical strategies for enhancing brand social media savvy.

In the last decade, social media has radically changed the way web hosting providers interact with their clients and acquire new customers. Nexcess has embraced the power of social media to build communities around brands, and uses its extensive social media presence to engage with clients, contribute to conversations in the web hosting space, and market its industry-leading hosting products.

“As a Michigan-based global tech company, we’re excited to support a conference that brings some of the nation’s most influential social media thinkers to our home state,“ commented Chris Wells, President and CEO of Nexcess. “Social media played a key role in our growth as an international hosting provider, and we’re looking forward to talking social media strategy with other regional brands.”

Among the speakers at Social Mitten will be Jay Baer, business strategist and New York Times best-selling author, who will focus on the way social media has changed the relationship between brands and their customers. Dorian Morin-van Dam will open the conference with Who Is Afraid of the Big Bad Camera?, an examination of the power of video and why it is increasingly important for brands to invest in video content and live streaming.

Social media is vital to modern marketing and customer engagement, but every brand should also have a fast, effective, independent web site or store. Nexcess is a leading provider of performance-optimized eCommerce and CMS hosting capable of supporting websites of any size.
