#SocialBrew Kicks Off Jan 6!
#SocialBrew is an informational, networking series on small business development and marketing that is sponsored by RockIt Lab and The Mack House.
The purpose of this series is to provide no-strings-attached, totally FREE information to small businesses and startups so that they can make themselves into more competitive, agile forces in their respective industries.
Hosted at a local nanobrewery that makes its own beers on location, this event is a unique opportunity to learn from industry experts without the pressure of having to buy a product or hire an agency -- and have some fantastic brews, some of which cannot be sampled anywhere else.
Winter Edition: Metrics & Analytics
This Winter Edition is the first installment of the #SocialBrew series and will focus on Social Metrics & Analytics.
Our speakers and panelists will answer questions like:
--How can you tell that your Facebook page is actually worth the money you're investing in it?
--Which numbers should you pay attention to in your Facebook Insights and other social media metrics?
--CPM, ROI, CTR, KPI: what do all of these damn acronyms stand for and which ones matter?
--What strategies will convert your current FANS, FRIENDS, and FOLLOWERS into actual customers?
The event will be hosted by Alex Wall, Managing Director and Founder of RockIt Lab, and the panel will be moderated by Grant Stern.
John Saunders, Herman Advertising
Being a Digital Marketer in South Florida, I am a HUGE advocate for digital marketing expansion. My passion stems from the use of my skills in social media marketing, Google Analytics, website design and creation, and copywriting to create and promote clients' digital content to the masses. What began as a marketing hobby in 2005 on "The Facebook", was quickly molded into a lucrative career in the digital space.
Working with clients nationwide to promote their online presence, developing detailed marketing plans for online expansion and providing analytics and metrics that track their progress has been rewarding. Combining my digital expertise with the prowess of local businesses has created a powerhouse team prepared to take over the world…one click at a time.
