Still not sure what you can do with social media for your business?
Attend a conference in the Midwest – and hear what people have to say who are already using it for business. There’s two coming up in September. Choose one.
http://smalltown2011.140conf.com/ Hutchinson Kansas is having their second Small Town 140 Character Conference. A day filled with folks talking 10 minutes at time – and sharing how they’ve used social media and what it means for their business. Plan a short vacation — visit the Salt Mines and the Cosmosphere. Hutch is a great family kind of town – and you’ll never regret going. September 20 is the date.
http://uppermidwestsmcon.org/ One week later in Mason City Iowa is the Upper Midwest Social Media Conference. This is the first year for this conference and Mason City has affordable hotels, great food and lots of history. There are sessions in this conference and you can choose which ones to attend. The speakers will be announced this week. September 26th at the Clarion Hotel.
Both conferences are under $100 to attend, and a great way to see if social media is a marketing avenue you want to pursue.
