SMC-DC February Event: Leveraging Online Relationships
Valentine’s Day may be history, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a good time to discuss relationships! Social media is all about relationship building, and this month, SMC-DC has asked some great speakers to join us in discussing how they leverage their online relationships to meet their goals—whether your goals involve marketing, political advocacy, or issue awareness, your online relationships may be more valuable than you think.
Join Social Media Club DC and our terrific hosts at Microsoft for this panel discussion and Q&A. Food and refreshments will be served, and of course there will be plenty of networking and relationship building—and, most importantly, fun!
