Is Your Organization Taking Full Advantage of Social Media?

Target Marketing and Grow Socially are partnering for full-day master class that will help media professionals optimize their social media efforts.

We all know that social media is important — it’s where news breaks, content goes viral and social change is spurred. But is your entire media organization taking advantage of these influential platforms? Is your staff working strategically about boosting your brands and driving reader engagement through social? Do you even have a social media strategy?

Many marketers still struggle to capitalize on social media because they lack a clear strategy, fail to set measurable goals and overlook the need for cross-functional collaboration. Which is why Target Marketing is launching the Social Media & Inbound Marketing Master Class in partnership with Grow Socially. Hosted at the New York City Union League on October 16, this interactive seminar will instruct media, marketing and audience development specialists on effective social media practices that will grow audience and revenue.

This Social Media & Inbound Marketing Master Class is ideal for editors, marketers, audience development professionals and brand managers. Through a combination of lessons, discussions and hands-on exercises, attendees will learn:

  1. How to use social media to engage new markets and appeal to the next generation of consumers. The importance of social for mobile.

Leading the master class is John Foley, CEO and CMO of the social media marketing company Grow Socially. Foley will guide attendees through each session and explore social strategies most effective for the marketing sector. Foley, who was ranked #15 on Forbes’ “50 Most Influential CMOs on Social Media” in 2014, brings years of experience to this event and will provide real-world examples of what has worked on social media, why it has worked and how marketers can implement similar strategies in their own social marketing efforts.
