Social Media is a burgeoning field and growing every year. With such a large number of actors, participants, and vehicles, that it can be difficult to sort through all the little pieces to put together a cohesive plan. If you are new to social media and don’t know where to begin, or are experienced in marketing your business, brand or identity online, the Central Wisconsin Social Media Conference, Tuesday March 5, 2013 will not want be missed.

This year, the Central Wisconsin Social Media Conference moves down to the UWSP campus in Stevens Point. Presented by the UWSP Continuing Education Department, the new venue opens the conference up to new participants and ideas. But the short drive down to Point will be worth it as this year’s conference has items for both novice and experienced social media users.

Social media is here to stay. Businesses constantly communicate with customers and other businesses using social media. At this conference, active social media practitioners will conduct peer-to-peer breakout sessions to provide insight on how to energize your social media efforts to PROMOTE, GROW, and EXPAND your business.
