Nearly 90% of companies believe that social media will be an important part of their marketing mix with most using it to increase brand awareness and communicate. And statistics say those who are using it to increase brand awareness are benefiting greatly. A recently completed study found that 23.1 million people discover new brands through social media. But the challenge comes in moving from a generic understanding that “social marketing is good” to the specific, “so here’s what I’m going to do about it.” We scoured the virtual highways and networking byways to uncover our top picks for really effective social marketing tactics that have produced positive, tangible results. Travis Brock, EMG's Director of Social Media and Stephen Biernacki, New Media Specialist, are the expert faculty members for this KnowledgeBuilder.

This KnowledgeBuilder is designed to teach you:
* important guidelines for social networking
* hugely effective social marketing tactics
* examples for each of the top social marketing tactics
