Most folks know how to post their content on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn now. Our presentation focuses on some of the more advanced topics in social media marketing available to us today, including 1) influencers, 2) social media integration with search, and 3) #hashtags and how your company can put them to work to help maximize your social media outreach . Our focus is LGBT, but the strategies remain the same for almost any type of niche marketing today.

We will touch on Interpersonal Marketing, discussing in more detail how marketing outreach in today's environment merges PR, advertising and social media. In today's world, user-generated content [photos, status updates and reviews about your business] are becoming more and more relevant... we'll be discussing some of these trends, including how your business can best utilize Instagram, Vine [new 6-second video service offered by Twitter] and more.
