Socialize: Monetizing Social Media by getting Some Social Media SWAG

If I hear another person tell me, "I don't get twitter or I don't have a blog" - I'm gonna scream. Especially in Detroit. (Where unemployment is at almost 50%) - When will folks get the message that the economy has changed. Shifted. Moved to another dimension. The Bible says, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge..."

Yes, true. But in the age of the internet (we call it the information age), those with the most information - and know how to apply it - WIN. Hands down.

So, quit please, if you don't understand something - learn it. If you need help, ask for it. But don't stay P.O.O.R. (Passing Over Opportunities Regularly)

Take advantage of people, events, blogs and even status updates - so you can get your Social Media SWAG on! - GET THERE, or be square. :)

Impact Network wants to build out and have positive programs and productions, “We will include everything from health education all the way to spiritual and general education,” said Impact’s General Manager, Terry Arnold.

According to Jackson, the type of programming varies, and includes talk/reality shows, music videos, news, family programming, films, cooking shows, spiritual programming, comedy and community development.

One of the first shows announced is “Good News with Greg Davis” which will air Monday through Saturday at 5:00 pm EST. the show will include a variety of news, talk, empowerment and more. Davis formerly was host of “Rejoice in the Word” but resigned from that show a few weeks ago. Segments of Davis’ new show will be taped at various conventions and conferences and studios.

Social Media Has Changed: Are You Ready?

When Michael Stelzner started Social Media Examiner
in October 2009, he never dreamed it would become so successful so quickly.

As of March 2011, Social Media Examiner has 59,000 email subscribers, 33,000 Facebook fans, over 60 writers and half a million page views per month.

In addition, the site has generated almost $2 million in sales; ranks among the top 12 websites on two Technorati lists – business and small business; and ranks among the top 1,500 websites in the entire United States, according to Alexa.

“We didn’t do anything unique,” Stelzner said. “We simply employed great content with smart social media marketing and our community did the rest. And any business can achieve great results.”
Listen to Michael share more of the story.

Here’s How Your Business Can Thrive With Social Media

Would you like to learn the tactics of social media from pros like Stelzner—all from the comfort of your home or office? If so, keep reading.

Imagine how much it would cost you to attend a week-long conference with 22 different experts in a faraway city. The conference fee, airfare, hotel room, rental car and restaurants would set you back several thousand dollars.

But you can attend an online conference with 22 different social media pros for a fraction of that cost.
social media success summit
Yes, we’re talking about Social Media Examiner’s upcoming third-annual social media conference, Social Media Success Summit 2011.
You may have been one of the 2,500 attendees at last year’s summit and now you’re wondering if you can skip this one. We don’t recommend it!
LinkedIn and Facebook have gone through many changes just in the last two months,” Stelzner said.

If you’re one of those 59,000 Social Media Examiner subscribers, you already know that, right? Because you’ve read the following stories:
All of these articles were published in the last two months.

Learn What Works in Social Media Marketing

“We have a whole new lineup this year,” Stelzner said. “And the major emphasis in this summit is monitoring and tracking your social media marketing results.”
Nearly all of the presenters have either authored a social media book or manage social media programs for well-known corporations.
You’ll hear from Boeing, Verizon, Intel, Citigroup and Cisco. Here’s a partial list of the 22 presenters:
  • Jeremiah Owyang, Altimeter Group
  • Brian Solis, author of Engage
  • Mari Smith, co-author of Facebook Marketing: An Hour a Day
  • Frank Eliason, Citigroup
  • Mario Sundar, LinkedIn
  • David Meerman Scott, author of Real-Time Marketing and PR

And here’s a sample of what you’ll learn: Facebook news feed optimization, how big B2B brands are using social media, how to use LinkedIn to grow your business, how to attract local customers using Facebook Places and the 6-step process for measuring social media return on investment.
Last year’s attendees included General Mills, American Express, Coca-Cola, Microsoft, 3M, Kellogg’s, General Electric, MetLife, Fox TV, U.S. Army, NCR, Ben & Jerry’s, Xerox, Capital One, Disney and thousands of small businesses.

There are only 2,500 spots and a lot of them have already been taken. Grab yours before it’s gone!
