Social Media Marketing Conference in August

Calling all social media novices and experienced users - come to Chicago in August (it really is the best time to visit this fine city) and attend the Chicago Area Social Media Marketing Conference presented by SkillPath Seminars.  I just received the brochure in the mail and this day-long conference is jam packed with interesting sessions that look to provide a lot of practical advice to beginners and experienced social media users in marketing themselves and their business. 
 
The Chicago area seminar starts at 9:00 a.m. and goes until 4:00 p.m. and is offered on 3 separate days (August 5, 6, and 7) and in 3 different locations in the Chicago area (Chicago, Oak Brook, and Schaumburg).  From the website, it looks like the group also presents this conference in other cities, so if you can't make it to Chicago in August (and I don't know why you wouldn't), you should check out SkillPath's website and enter your zipcode to see if the conference is offered near your city.
 
The conference presents two concurrent tracks, each consisting of five sessions:  Track 1, "You've decided to jump into the world of social media - now what?" and Track 2, "Step up your social media presence: Network, promote, share...and profit!" 
 
Here is a preview of some of the sessions:
  • Mistakes rookies make...but you don't have to
  • The art of writing for a social media audience
  • Show me the money: how social media actually pays off
  • The key to social media success: getting off to a good start
You can register for the conference on SkillPath's website.   I'm looking forward to attend this conference because (1) it's in my home town of Chicago and (2) it allows attendees to split their time between the "beginner" and "experienced" sessions so they can customize their conference to fit their interests and needs.  Even experienced social media users should leave the conference having learned something new.
