How many social media marketing events can you possibly attend in one year? Trust me, you could probably find one a day.
It depends on your goal…quantity or quality? Considering we sleep within arms reach of our mobile phone, spend almost two (or 12?) hours a day on social media and like the idea of eating and exercising using social media wearables – it’s fair to say social media marketing events and conferences could be feeding an addiction.

First think about eliminating those excess social media calories and attend the conferences that will strengthen your business skills. Next, check out my helpful list of social media conference faves.
