Last year the folks over at Mashable declared June 30th as Social Media Day. Thousands of meet-ups are taking place around the world to allow social media users to come out from behind their computer screens and connect in person. As far as I’ve heard, no event’s being held here in Hamilton, so I’m really pleased to be presenting on Social Media for Employment Counsellors for the local Employment Assistance Resource Network (EARN) this morning.
But that’s enough about me! In honour of Social Media Day, I’d like to do something for YOU, so I’m offering $5.00 off my Basic Guide for Networking on Twitter, which was launched earlier this year. To take advantage of this special, simply enter the coupon code smday when you place your order. I wouldn’t want you to miss out if you’re taking a tech break over the long weekend, so this offer will remain in effect until midnight on Friday, July 8th.
I’ve also found a couple of up-to-date free downloads for you (no email address required):
- 2011 Social Media Marketing Industry Report: insight into how over 3300 marketers are using social media to grow their businesses
- The 2011 CMO’s Guide To The Social Landscape: a chart to help you determine which social media tools and channels are your best bet in terms of customer communication, brand exposure, traffic, and SEO
