Want to Go to Social Media Marketing Bootcamp?

(Shameless pitch alert…)

Are you lost in Social Media hell? Mediabistro has a Social Media Marketing Boot Camp just for you. For the unitiated, it’s an online conference and hands-on workshop running September 13 – November 1 (the early bird discount expires August 23). There will be a slew of speakers including Gretchen Rubin (The Happiness Project), David Meerman Scott (Real-Time Marketing & PR), and Justin Smith (Inside Network). SEO writer McLean Robbins, based out of D.C., will also be in the mix.

Robbins is a luxury lifestyle writer and blogger for leading magazines and websites, including Washingtonian, Robb Report, and AOL’s travel blogs Luxist and Gadling and AOLTravel. She’ll discuss tools she uses when optimizing writing for strong search results. She’ll also clue you in on how to achieve maximum searchability on your website, blog, and social media pages.

Don’t think you can just coast. There’s homework, lectures and peer interaction. And no, the buff guy with the whistle above will not be among your teachers.

The cost by Aug. 23: $399 or $375 for AG members. Groups may also register for a deeper discount. After two people from the same organization register at full price, all additional registrants from that organization pay only $299. Still interested? Visit here for more information.
