Is social media really the future of marketing? In this webinar Mike discusses how much the marketing power of social media is exaggerated. Social media is not magic, and fundamental marketing strategies shouldn't be thrown out the window and replaced by new social media techniques.

Social media is a powerful tool, but it is still just one of the many gears that you need to make up your marketing machine.

Join Mike's webinar to learn how to integrate social media tools with your current marketing strategy in order to fully capture its benefits. There are many ways to create value and get noticed, and although social media may help, it is by no means the reason to stop doing marketing.

  • There are lots of enterprise marketing tools for multinational corporations. But these tools are overly complex, expensive and difficult to use. And you need a number of different tools to do marketing the way you should do it. HubSpot makes this all a lot easier, since we have built a powerful, but integrated suite of marketing tools that allows you to do all the different parts of marketing with one system. Easy and integrated.
