Social Media is a strange beast. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google+ — they’re always evolving, and sometimes it feels impossible to keep up. To learn what’s new. To find what’s best for your business. And to develop an internet marketing strategy. The good news is, help is here, in the form of a day-long Digital Marketing Forum right here in Birmingham on April 3. For the business that’s overwhelmed by all the possibilities and new developments, this conference could be the perfect antidote.

Just looking through the agenda might help put your mind at ease: the day includes classes on understanding what metrics and analytics really mean, reinvigorating your social strategy when it feels stagnant, adding video to your plan without breaking your budget, and dealing with online critics.

And the speakers? They’re top-notch. Katie Richman, ESPN’s Director of Social Media Strategy and Social Products for espnW and the Global X Games, will share how her team shapes digital strategies (and her talk will include a Q&A, so you’ll be able to get direct feedback). David Griner is Social Editor for AdWeek and is a former VP/Director of Digital Content for Luckie & Company. And Jeff Vreeland, a founding member of the Alabama Social Media Association, also served as VP of Digital Strategy for some awesome-sounding company called Infomedia.

Convinced? The day of content is $200 — but you can save $50 by using promo code bhambiz at checkout. Tickets for the April 3 event are available here. Get your social media started, growing or back on track with what promises to be an excellent event.

Her skills were forged in the newsroom at The Birmingham Post-Herald and she’s a huge book nerd (she moonlights as Southern Living’s book reviewer), but a love of paper and ink hasn’t stopped her from mastering the digital world as well: She’s had a blog pretty much since they existed, and she’s run social media for companies big and small. Carrie’s always ready to take on a new communication challenge, lecture us about the proper use of semicolons, or defend the fact that her Instagram account is filled with selfies.
