Ok it may be the best Social Media Marketing Training in Australia and New Zealand

I got carried away because, as Big Kev used to say, I’m excited!!!

In less than two weeks, I get to dust off my SuperGirl cape as we will kick off our ‘Become a Social Media Super Hero’ Australian tour, this time with stops in Auckland and Wellington as well!

We know many business owners are in overwhelm mode when it comes to social media right now, all furiously trying to keep up with never ending changes, system updates, apps, tools, releases and spending excessive amounts of time on social networks, without necessarily enjoying the rewards for their efforts.

Others are not even on Social Media networks at all – and if you’re not – you should be. No, as business owners, you HAVE to be (it’s no longer an option if you want to be competitive in the marketplace).

In the past month on Facebook alone there have been several major updates and their “Pages” are changing completely as from Friday. You can see an overview of some of these changes in this video in a previous post.

We know it’s often not realistic for you to keep up with all of these ongoing developments and articulate them into effective marketing strategies and activities.

I’m hearing more and more that you’re just plain stressed by social media!

That’s where I come in and why I have teamed up with:

  • Wendy Moore, the founder of Savvy Web Women and creator of the Savvy List Building Blog who is the ultimate resource on Facebook, and
  • Yvette Adams, CEO of The Creative Collective, who is a LinkedIn Legend and has thousands of contacts on Facebook and Twitter as well,

to deliver ONE POWER PACKED DAY OF SOCIAL MEDIA IMMERSION to help you
Become a “Social Media Super Hero”.

Whether you are new to social media marketing or are already well on your way, this workshop will make you reach your true ‘super hero’ potential.

Topics covered at the full day Social Media Super Hero workshops include:

  • Recent major updates to all three networks and where it’s going into the future
  • How to professionally position your business, and grow and manage lists on Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter
  • How to separate your Business and Personal accounts and why this is so important
  • How to customize your Twitter background, and Facebook Page for professional branding
  • How to obtain your vanity URL on Facebook and why this is so important (it’s more than just a name)
  • What to write about, how to write it and when to post it for maximum results – so it actually gets read
  • Online reputation management including how to handle negative feedback
  • How to know when people are talking ‘about’ you, your company & your products and respond quickly
  • The importance of, and how to design, an effective social media strategy, policies and schedule

and oh so much more!

Yvette Adams will be covering Linkedin, Wendy Moore will cover Facebook and I will share my insider tactics on Twitter that have allowed me to not only build a following in excess of 50,000 people but to connect with key people to create joint ventures, speaking opportunities and (most importantly as business owners) sales!

In fact, this seminar series has been a result of contacts made through Social Media and I originally ‘met’ Yvette when she sought me out for a speaking engagement after finding me on Twitter.

Yes, use Social Media the right way and your best clients and business partners will find you!

We’ll also share our top syndication and scheduling tools to allow you to get the maximum results from social media marketing in the minimum amount of time.

Most importantly all three trainers are business owners that are using Social Media Marketing to effectively grow our own businesses.  While our training has taken place all over the World, we ‘Walk Our Talk’ right here – each and everyday.

We’re not just going to overwhlem you with stats and facts but give you real, actionable steps to take away and immediately apply in your business and we will be drawing on examples from the participants in the room.

We have deliberately kept numbers small for you to get maximum results from the day – so you will need to book quickly before the events sell out!

Did you know what Twitter is attracting 5,000 – 10,000 new accounts every day, the average user tweets 0.97 times per day and 33.44% of all tweets begins with the @ symbol.

Mmm, very interesting, but what does this mean for most Twitter users?

At first glance, not much, but when you dig a little deeper, it’s possible to identify a few things that will make your use of Twitter more productive.  This great post by the Team at Twitter Power System shows you how to use Twitter usuage stats to make your twitter networking most effective and efficient.
