Thanks to everyone who came out this week for social media management panel with Kevin S. Ryan and Craig Yaris.
We had a lively discussion of social marketing for business, with a focus on the tools needed to efficiently and effectively manage and track your social marketing efforts –from the development of an editorial calendar to the use of Hootsuite and Bit.ly to execute and monitor results.
Thanks to Craig and Kevin for sharing their knowledge and experience, and for making it entertaining as well as informative. For those who want to connect, we’ll repeat their bios and contact information below.
