Social Media Marketing is obviously not a marketing fad, yet a viable marketing medium that each company and organization should learn to embrace. I've been working with the United States Tennis Association over the course of the past 2 years in trying to develop some type of grass roots effort to embrace the ideologies of social media marketing. Recently I was asked to present my ideas at the USTA Annual Meeting in Dallas this past month. This is the PowerPoint presentation of that meeting.
