Introduction to Social Media Marketing

Have you ever gone to a networking group and listened to a speaker who told you nothing of value except a bunch of statistics and definitions? I went to one of these recently. The networking was good, the group was good, the speaker was knowledgeable, but he really needed an updated presentation with something more useful than a list of definitions and statistics on social media.

Here’s my thoughts on what an introductory presentation might cover. I would love to hear your comments on what would be valuable to you.
