*** Sponsors needed:

Ned,

The opportunity to do a three month (or longer) embed to Afghanistan and Iraq has come up, and I am looking for sponsors. Sponsors will get links on every story; logo and links where possible; push on Twitter, Facebook, and other social media; and credit/feature on videos done during the embed. As a final point of consideration, the sponsorship can go to Cooking with the Troops (http://cwtt.org), a 501(c)(3) public charity, as this comes under our Front Line Support effort, so that sponsors get not only the advertising benefits but the tax benefits of a donation as well. The stories will be posted to both Blackfive (http://www.blackfive.net the most read milblog in the world) and to Andrew Brietbart's Big Peace (http://bigpeace.com).

In addition, video is planned to be posted on YouTube and/or distributed by SOGmedia (http://sogmedia.net/). We are also looking to raise money to do a Cooking with the Troops food event as close to the front as we can. Sole sponsorship of that event is available as well. Anyone interested can contact me at ceo@cwtt.org and note embed sponsorship in the subject line.

Thanks,

Blake

B2B marketers are no different than everyone else: companies throughout the world are struggling to figure out what to do with Social Media Marketing. Can you leverage the power of social networks to sell widgets? Is it possible to use video to create more engagement with your clients? Should you start thinking about using location-based networks?

And what about the Sales Team, the CMO, the CEO? Do they need to get Social?

Time to learn from the team at Area 224 – veteran webinar host and Social Media Marketer Dave Van de Walle will lead you through the questions all companies are asking, and give you 18 steps, including…

•What happens when you get the right “sponsor” internally for your social time

•Why “strategy” needs to come after the more important questions

•How to laser-focus your social media time

•The one trick that can help you navigate through the “Social Media Policy” question

•What part of the organization is best-equipped to “own” social – and what happens when you make the wrong decision

•Why Twitter is NOT all about the numbers – and what to do about it

•How to avoid making a perilous decision with location-based networks

And a ton, ton more — including a complete “18 Steps” guide as the “leave-behind” for your webinar attendance.

Get ready to feel the satisfaction of knowing where this all fits — and how to help make Social Media Marketing work for your company.
