Social Marketing for Business – Join the Conversation!, based in Centennial, Colorado, is one of the largest social media for business groups in the world with over 1,200 online members and an average attendance of over 60 people per month.
Denver-based marketing agency Webolutions® leads the group, managing the annual content calendar and moderating the discussion. The group shares social media marketing knowledge through Meetup.com, Facebook and Twitter and convenes once a month at the South Metro Denver Chamber.
“The group's mission is to help businesses generate measurable return on their social media marketing investment,” said Webolutions CEO John Vachalek. “It’s thrilling to see the community we’re building.”
For the second year in a row, the December gathering will demonstrate the group’s sense of community. Group organizers offered to organize a gift exchange if group businesses provided the gifts, and membership responded enthusiastically with over $1,500 in giveaways ranging from a round of golf to a year’s free membership to outsourced human resources service.

Conversation at each event focuses on a particular topic.

In December, attendees will share how they will use those concepts to generate ROI from social media marketing in 2013. Additional activities include business networking and “Speed Tips” breakouts where immediately-actionable, tactical knowledge is shared.
Topics for 2013 include Understanding the Mechanics of a Social Media Communications Plan; Developing, Communicating and Understanding Your Brand Experience on Social Media; and Privacy & Copyright Concerns in Social Media Marketing, for which an expert attorney speaker is expected.
