Web Advertising, Marketing and SEO are Very Measurable

Web Advertising, Marketing and SEO are Very Measurable

Yesterday I spoke to the Mid-Maine Chamber about Social Media for Business and I am putting the finishing touches on my Measuring Social Media presentation for Social Media FTW. Needless to say, I have been thinking a lot about measuring social media, web marketing and even SEO.

Before working at Hall, I worked for a large radio station group. Before the radio station, I worked for a small magazine. In those years of experience I don’t remember clients or advertisers asking for the ROI of their ad. It was just something they did.

‘People Remembering & Helping People’ was the theme for the Tenth Anniversary 9/11 tribute by Maine’s credit unions to the five Red Cross Chapters of Maine.  At the ceremony, Maine’s credit unions honored and remembered the victims of 9/11 and their families.  Also receiving recognition were the organizations that work each day to protect the health and safety of Maine people, as checks were also presented to the Emergency Food Relief Fund of each Red Cross Chapter.  In addition, as part of the continued effort of Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger, a donation was made to a food pantry located in each chapter.  Since 2001, through the Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger, Maine’s credit unions have contributed over $64,110 the Emergency Food Relief Funds of Maine’s Red Cross Chapters in memory of 9/11.

Social Media Breakfast Maine - Afternoon Birthday Party - How Local Breweries are Using Social Media

Social Media Breakfast Maine - Afternoon Birthday Party - How Local Breweries are Using Social Media

Social Media Breakfast Maine will be having a special afternoon birthday party this month and will be partaking in social media case studies with some of Maine's favorite breweries.

Maine is well known for lots of things and one is for all the amazing (and delicious) micro-breweries we have in the state. This month we are going to have a little birthday party and hear from three local brewers on how they are using new marketing tools to promote themselves.

We have a stellar lineup of brewers and I called in the big guns to help me co-host the event – Mr. Chris Brogan was kind enough to say he would join me to help us facilitate this event. Chris is a man who knows a thing or two about marketing businesses and about good beer, so I knew just who to go to for help!

We will be back at the Eastland Park Hotel for this special Happy Hour SMBME.
