All Summer, our efforts have been focused on producing Social Media University - Milwaukee at the Italian Conference Center tomorrow. When we told you about it in our last newsletter, we had no idea what it was going to become. It was when we ran into one of our speakers at an event the other night and she said: "You guys need to know how much THIS event has raised the bar," that we realized we're about to put on an event that will change the face of business in Milwaukee.
Our goal was simply to educate the market on Social Media. What we've ended up with is arguably the largest, most powerful collaborative Web and business effort in recent memory. We've brought together all of Milwaukee's most talented and knowledgeable Web and Marketing professionals to help us present Social Media knowledge to an audience of over 350 of Wisconsin's most influential business decision makers - From Fortune 500's to small businesses. Manufacturers, Retailers, Health Care organizations, Non-profits. You'd be amazed at the names. I know we are.
Everyone is clamoring to be a part of it. Sponsors include SouthWest Airlines, Best Buy, Time Warner Cable, C2 Graphics Productivity Solutions and a half dozen others.
We have a full day of great information from great speakers, including the CEO of Blinds.com who will tell how he turned an investment of $3000 to start a business in his garage into a $50 million a year Web powerhouse using Web and Social Media best practices. Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn, Media, Marketing and SEO experts will be on hand to teach. A panel of local businesses who are using Social Media to fuel success in a down economy will share their tips and tricks. And the day ends with a networking event, and further opportunity to learn from the speakers.
The Social Media Train is leaving the station tomorrow and headed for success.
