The Practice and Pitfalls of Running Social Media Promotions: Do You Know the Rules for Success?

Contests, promotions and games of chance are big on Twitter, Facebook and other social media channels. All of us have probably seen - or taken part in - a "Tweet this and win" contest, or Liked a Page for the opportunity to win big. Even I've won something on Twitter - GA Aquarium silly bands for my daughter.

We know promotions can work, but many of us are not 100% clear on the rules. So we're bringing in an expert to answer all of your questions. Join SMC Atlanta later this month as we host our first educational event of 2011: The Practice and Pitfalls of Running Social Media Promotions & Games of Chance.

Ben Ryder, manager of emerging technologies with the interactive promotions agency ePrize and member of Social Media Club Detroit, will share his expertise and insight; Brian Rudolph will moderate.
