Strength Conference Coming in April!
Strength, a new kind of conference on Social Media, is coming to Birmingham starting next week. On each of the five Monday nights in April, MJM Media is bringing together Social Media experts to lead and guide businesses through the complex and changing field of Social Media.

"The Strength conference has been designed specifically around the greatest online needs of small businesses owners and professionals: social networking, understanding website metrics, and online productivity,"  explains Mitzi Eaker, the conference's founder. "We have brought together experts in the Birmingham area to guide participants weekly, and I will spend a month walking with them and investing in them through the process."

"Strength isn't just a conference that people come to and leave not really knowing what to do when they get back home. I'm looking at this as a month long investment of teaching, guiding, coaching and helping small business owners and professionals build relationships of support with one another so they can take what they learn and implement it and have an online community that will amplify it." 

Mitzi has a big heart for seeing small businesses thrive by sharing their stories, values, and products through online marketing. Just as every business is different, every online marketing strategy should be personalized to reflect your unique brand and connect with your target customers. 

Conference topics will step through both the basic and advanced subjects of social media, including:
  • Basics of Social Media Tools
  • Creating a Social Media Strategy 
  • Creating Content Your Customers Want
  • SEO and ROI
  • Partnering with Social Media Experts
  • Maximizing your Online Productivity  

The speakers include Karla Archer of Archer Creative; Julie Brannon, President of TELP Media and Contributing Editor of The Social Media Monthly; Teri Lynne Underwood, Author, Speaker, and Social Media Coach;
Jerry Brown, Digital Strategist at Infomedia; Emily Lowrey, Founder and Owner of Magic City Post; and myself.

Tickets can be purchased for each night individually ($39.99) or for the entire conference ($129.99.)

The Strength Conference will be beneficial to small business owners, social media managers or marketing executives, and to bloggers who are thinking about starting or already have their own business.
