Last chance to participate in our free social media fitness program (#sm10x30)

[1]At the end of this month, we will be retiring our Social Media Fitness Program [2].  Otherwise known as SM 10X30, the premise of the program is to help communication professionals, new and experienced, better utilize social media to complement their business strategies.  The program provides useful tools and actionable insights in a condensed 10-day, 30-minutes-a-day format to help you understand and maximize the power of social media.  The program is email-based and can be done at your leisure — you will always have the option of going back to a workout later. 

Our social media fitness program (#sm10x30) was launched in January 2010 and it is hard to believe that we are almost at the end of what has turned out to be an incredibly successful program.  Our goal was to sign up 700 participants within the first three months of its launch (about eight new users a day).  By early April, we doubled that estimate and extended the program because of its popularity and the positive feedback we received. Now, nearly 12 months later, we are approaching 5,000 participants (almost double the amount of new users a day). 

Needless to say, we are blown away by how many people have signed up but more importantly, we are extremely grateful to all of you who took the next step to learn more about social media and enhance your experience within it.

Today, Thursday, December 9, the #smmeasure Twitter [3] chat community and I will be discussing what we learned about social media in 2010.  Be sure to join the conversation at 9 am PST / 12 pm EST!

Whether you are a professional just beginning to explore the world of social media or a user that has years of experience, our free “fitness” program will help you step your way through social media by providing valuable instruction and insightful tips. It’s also a great opportunity to teach others the value of social media through the activities provided in the workouts.
