#SocialBrum: Strategic Growth Through Social Media Seminar – The Review!

On Thursday 9th October, Birmingham got social! After forming an alliance with the Mockingbird Theatre in the Custard Factory, we hosted a free seminar based on 'Strategic Growth through Social Media' in partnership with the great 200 leaders, which turned out to be a great success. From having experience in hosting events of this nature, a thoroughly planned session was delivered, with our attendees interacting and engaging with each other, online and off. This resulted in all of the attendees leaving with a smile on their face, as well as a wealth of knowledge about social media in relation to creating organic growth.

During the seminar we decided to run a experiment, using the hashtag #SocialBrum. In turn this provided an effective visual representation, demonstrating how powerful social media can be in terms of generating exposure and leveraging online commercial opportunities. As such, the results were staggering and most importantly, impressive! Over the course of the morning and early into the afternoon we were able to identify that we achieved 1,000,000+ (update: 2,000,000+) impressions through the use of keyhole.co - and that number is still rising!

Over the course of the seminar, there were many lessons to be learnt however, here are some of the top tweets posted by our attendees, which you can learn from:
