Put the Social in Social Media with Online and In-Person Events

Digital ad agency and small business social media pros looking to update their knowledge of the ever-changing field of digital media can do just that via a Vocus Webinar on Thursday, February 27, 2014. Starting at 2 pm ET (3 pm CT), the one-hour, online seminar will address the State of the Media Report 2014.

In the past year, the media landscape has changed dramatically: newspapers have used images caught by iPhone more than photographs taken by professionals; reporters are accessing Twitter for quotes; paywalls increased revenues; and The Washington Post is now run by American Internet entrepreneur Jeff Bezos.

Leading the webinar is Gini Dietrich, founder and CEO of Arment Dietrich, an integrated marketing communications firm. As the author of Marketing In the Round and the upcoming Spin Sucks, Dietrich is well-equipped to offer tips on how to adapt PR strategies via social networks to fit today’s media climate as defined in the State of the Media Report by Vocus.
