You can learn a lot about social media without ever leaving your desk. There are a number of great blogs out there that can help you learn. Some companies have webinars that are pretty useful as well. Much of that content is free, even. Every now and then, however, a virtual event comes along that is so good and full of content you don’t have to go hunting for that it’s worth the investment.

How would you like to spend an hour each with the likes of Guy Kawasaki, Steve Rubel, Chris Brogan, Ann Handley, Darren Rowse, Mari Smith, Jay Baer, Brian Clark and even little ole me? Oh, and to boot you get an hour each with Ramon de Leon (Dominoes Pizza Chicago), Greg Jarboe and social media frolks from Best Buy, Whole Foods, Home Depot, Foursquare and more. And you can get all that without leaving your desk? Really?

Yep. Really.

Social Media Success Summit 2010The Social Media Success Summit 2010 has just that lineup. Michael Stelzner of Social Media Examiner puts it on and the virtual event (live events throughout the month of May that are archived and available to attendees after) is probably one of the best buys in the social media marketing space for those interested in learning more. Michael put the first Social Media Success Summit on last year and it was a huge success. I heard from several people who attended and never heard a frustration or complaint at all.

This event is perfect for small business owners, brand managers, marketing managers, public relations professionals and anyone interested in leveraging social media for their business. I highly recommend you consider attending. If you click through on any of the links on this page, I get credit for an affiliate sale. If you’d like to purchase without me profiting, you’re welcome to do so through the various links on Social Media Examiner.

I’m excited to be a part of this event and hope you will join me and the other speakers above. Think of it like getting a graduate level course in social media marketing in just a month, all without leaving your desk. See you at the Summit!

    Droool. No seriously, I would LOVE to come. I would also love to bring a few of my clients a long with me.

      Well, we'd love to have you and your clients. And you can “come” with no
      expenses, too. All virtual … kinda rocks. Thanks, Lyndit.

        I will create a meeting invite and see if I can get a couple of clients to carve out time to join in and listen. Thanks for the post.

    In addition to online summits, there are other great online resources when it comes to social media. If you do a simple Google search for “how to use social media” you will find a long list of results related to social media. Take a look around YouTube, there are several videos that outline social media and how to use it effectively.

    I like the idea of online events, especially since it is a social media summit. And the chance of actually ..somehow interacting with the greatest social media gurus. It says a lot about the evolution of social media itself. However, when it comes to events, I still believe there is nothing like face to face interaction! It is quite a different experience to get to know someone online as compared to..traditional interaction.

      No doubt, the in-person events offer great networking and connection
      opportunities. But these are tight times. Spending thousands traveling to
      expensive conferences is unnecessary when you have events like this that
      offer the same, or even better, content and save you money from having to
      worry with flights, hotels, food, etc.

      I go to face-to-face events a lot. And I love them. This is just a smart
      alternative if you can't. Hope to “see” you there.

    Yeah, I've been to one webinar seminar once. While I don't think it can replace face-to-face interaction, the speaker was able to clearly discuss important points and address concerns of everyone who attended that webinar at that time–all in a short span of time. It's perfect for those with busy schedules, and those who cannot travel miles just to attend a conference.
    Also, there are numerous articles over the internet where you can learn about social media (like this site) and the best part about these articles is they are free.

    It would be great to hear the the thoughts of such esteemed people who have great knowledge about Social Media. I am actually following Guy Kawasaki on Twitter and his tweets are loaded with information pertaining to social media and marketing.
