In the age of Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Youtube, a fundamental change in consumer behavior has occurred: people are influenced by their peers to a greater degree than they are by brands and institutions. Search engines and media make up the democratic marketplace, using real consumer metrics to understand the trends shaping this still-largely untapped sector.

So how do you make the leap into social media marketing and leverage this change, but do so with a clear plan, benchmarks and informed awareness of the space in which you and/or your business are entering?  Join this MITX Training event to understand the rapidly changing social media orbit and hear practical step-by-step examples of how to design and execute progressive multi-channel marketing campaigns.

This presentation is geared towards marketers getting a grasp on social media with special focus on students and entry-level employees who want to prove to their managers that they know what it takes to execute successful social media campaigns.
