The SMB Social Media Makeover Forum is coming to Denver (www.listeninteractive.com/registration-Denver)
on Sept. 20. It will feature two local small businesses who will receive valuable social media advice from some of the Denver area's biggest and most successful brands. The Forum will take place before a live audience of small businesses and marketing, PR and sales professionals.
The SMB Social Media Makeover Forum was previously held in Atlanta and Charlotte. It is a unique opportunity for small business owners and marketing professionals to join top digital strategists from major corporations in a candid, open conversation about improving the impact of social media on lead generation and sales.
"Denver's businesses are looking for an added boost to attract new customers. The Denver Social Media Makeover Forum is a unique way for small businesses to gain valuable social media insights from some of the area's leading brands," said Forum organizer Dan Greenfield, president of LISTEN Interactive (www.listeninteractive.com), a social media consultancy. "We won't rely on formal presentations; our venue is highly interactive, and the takeaways are actionable. We want participants to gain social media AHA! moments that can be directly used to avoid common pitfalls and maximize their performance."
Panels of experts from leading brands including the Denver Broncos, Chipotle, Comcast, Frontier Airlines, RE/MAX, Infusionsoft and others will help two small and mid-sized businesses revamp their social media strategy. In addition, two special "Makeover Counter" workshops will offer guidance on lead generation and Web strategies to take your engagement to the next level.
