«Return to Blog List Don’t Miss This Social Media Event
A few months ago, Michael Stelzner (the guy who wrote the book on white papers) approached me about being a contributor to a new site he was founding, Social Media Examiner.
Since then, I’ve had the chance to feature social media case studies on companies like IBM, Domino’s Pizza and Avaya.
But the Social Media Examiner site itself is one of the best case studies I’ve seen in social media.
Michael relied 100% on social media tactics to drive traffic to his site.
In less than 5 months, he was declared the #1 small business blog in the world by Technorati, added more than 13,000 email subscribers, brought nearly 100,000 people a month to his site and is ranked as one of the top 4700 websites in all of America by Alexa.
He didn’t advertise, didn’t rely on the press and almost none of his traffic is coming from search engines.
LEARN FROM THE BEST
The guy who brought us Social Media Examiner is also running the world’s biggest online social media event coming up, called Social Media Success Summit 2010.
Last year, nearly 1000 marketers and small business owners from around the world attended the summit. It was a smash hit. In fact, 97% of attendees said they’d attend again.
Twenty-four of the world’s leading social media superstars will be summit instructors.
Join Guy Kawasaki (author, Art of the Start), Chris Brogan (author, Social Media 101), Darren Rowse (author, ProBlogger), Mari Smith (author, Facebook Marketing), experts from Best Buy, Home Depot, Whole Foods, FoursquareGroupon; Steve Rubel (Edelman), Ann Handley (MarketingProfs), Brian Clark (Copyblogger), Greg Jarboe (author, YouTube and Video Marketing), Kim Dushinski (author, Mobile Marketing Handbook), Jason Falls (Social Media Explorer), Jay Baer (Convince & Convert), and Ramon De Leon (Chicago Domino’s Pizza)—just to mention a few. Together this team of “who’s who” in social media will help you succeed using practical tactics.
And the great news is it’s a live online conference you can attend from your home or office.
WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?
It’s a chance to really figure out HOW to use social media for business. This year’s focus is to empower you to build social media marketing plans, track your social media results and learn from other successful businesses.
Not only can you gain amazing exposure for your business with social media marketing, you’ll also generate traffic, increase sales, gain qualified leads and build new partnerships.

Michael’s also giving away a gift just for marketers called “How to Grow and Engage an Audience on Twitter” (valued at $42) as a way of saying “thanks” for checking out the summit.
