Casting a wider net in Social Media this year? Get social media fit fast!

Social media is already slated as the online marketing weapon of choice for the new decade by pundits in the industry, are you ready to join the conversation?  Ugh, cliche already, but unfortunately quite fitting.  By social media, it’s important to distinguish between individual platforms or tools and over-arching marketing strategy.  You can’t talk about social media from a platform standpoint by only including Twitter in your tactical planning, you need to recognize all the facets and touch points that contribute to a holistic engagement program.  Start off on the right foot, and enroll in Marketwire’s Social Media SM10x30 fitness program and make good on your social media New Year’s resolution.

Disclosure: I work for Marketwire, but I contributed to this program and think it’s pretty good, honestly.  It’s free, so satisfaction is 100% money-back guaranteed.  What have you got to lose?

The structure of the SM10x30 program is divided into two tracks: Basic and Core Conditioning.  So if you think you’re past the beginner stages of social media participation, sign up for the Core Conditioning track, which is a bit more in-depth.  Or sign up for both and take your lessons a la carte.

After signing up, you’ll receive one email per day for 10 days (hence the 10) which last about 30 minutes a day (hence the 30).  By no means are you required to complete each task every day, and you can revisit any email at a later time.  At the end of the Basic track, you could even continue on and sign up for the Core Conditioning track to build on what you learned.

What’s also nice is that this is a truly interactive program.  Not only are you participating in safe social media spaces that Marketwire has created for you, but someone is also on hand to help you out.  Marketwire’s Social Media expert, Nick Shin, acts as your personal trainer throughout the program.  If you’ve ever had a social media question but were too afraid to ask, he’s the guy to reach out to.

If you do get started in the program, why not stop by and say hi?

As I said before, consider enrolling in Marketwire’s Social Media SM10x30 fitness program to make good on your social media New Year’s resolution, or even find out whether you’re missing out on any valuable tips.
