In December, Carmen Scheidel (@Scheidel), Director of Education, Events and Multimedia Content at mediabistro (@mediabistro), came to me with an idea – the hybrid between a conference and the kind of online courses I teach for them (@mediabistroedu).
The concept would be 8 weeks long, with a conference keynote, question and answers as well as how-to session every Wednesday. Alongside the conference would be coursework that would allow students to come up with social media strategy they can implement by – or before – the end of the course.
It’s the Social Media Marketing Boot Camp, presented by mediabistro.com, SocialTimes, and AllFacebook, and I could not be more thrilled by the names we’ve been able to attract as well as the curriculum to assist anyone to come away with high-level exposure and understanding, as well as a valuable business commodity.
Today is the last day to take advantage of not only early bird pricing, but also an additional $50 off by using promo code JN50.
Carmen and I discuss what you can expect from the March 23 – May 11, 2011 event in our preview here:
