CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 20, 2012) - The Calgary Social Media Breakfast (SMBYYC) is pleased to announce Jaime Stein as this month's guest speaker.
The topic for the August SMBYYC is:
Are you ready for a post-social marketing world?
Lay of the marketing land is changing. "Social media" and its derivative terms have long flooded the Internet, business meetings, traditional media and everyday marketing conversations. Not that long ago, it may have provided a competitive advantage for the forward thinkers, but the current state of affairs raises some serious questions about its application, ROI and effectiveness.
Join us for a discussion about "Where do we go from here?" with Ernest Barbaric, a veteran digital marketing strategist. He will share his observations and predictions about what's next for the marketing industry and how best to prepare for a post-social marketing world.
Ernest Barbaric will then answer your questions in an interactive Q&A.
Seating is limited. Please RSVP at http://www.amiando.com/smbyyc31
