Wanted: Session Ideas For SMX Social Media Marketing
We’re pleased to announce that we’re launching a new conference: SMX Social Media Marketing, debuting in Scottsdale, AZ on December 5-6, 2011. SMX Social Media Marketing is a two-day, tactic-rich conference that covers all key issues for getting the most out of social media networks, whether you’re tasked with driving organic traffic, managing paid campaigns, or stewarding your company’s brand with online reputation management and customer service.
Do you have a topic you’d like to see covered in a session at SMX Social Media Marketing? Something you’d like to see covered in depth, or a discussion of advanced strategies and tactics for getting the most out your social media marketing campaigns? If so, we’d like to hear from you.
Anyone can submit a session idea for an SMX conference, even if you’re not interested in actually speaking at the show. Just tell us the name of a suggested session, a description of what you’d like the session to cover and your contact information, if you like. Contact details aren’t required, but they help in case we have follow-up questions.
Interested in speaking on a session you suggest? You can indicate this by ticking the “I’d Like To Speak” box to let us know. However, in most cases, you’ll need to put in a formal pitch after the final agenda is posted using our separate speaking pitch form. This form will only be active once an agenda has been finalized.
Remember that all sessions at SMX usually feature 3-4 speakers with 10-15 minutes each of speaking time, so please make sure your idea will accommodate that format. We’re not interested in any ideas for sessions where a single individual would speak for an entire session. And also please remember, no product or service pitches.
Key milestones for SMX Social Media Marketing
Again, the “suggestion box” is for session ideas only. We will open up a separate pitch form for people to apply to speak on specific panels once the agenda is posted.
- The session “suggestion box” is currently open; closes September 19
- Agenda posted & speaking pitch form opens week of September 29
- Speaking pitches close October 21
