Business Analytics and Optimization, IBM and Social Marketing

IBM Business Partners - Join me this Thursday to learn how to use Social Marketing to grow your business in 2009

As I alluded to in my previous post, I'm going to be speaking with IBM Business Partners on an Information Management "Think Thursday" call this week.  (And if you're an IBM Business Partner, please do join us.  You can find more details and register for the event through the events finder on PartnerWorld.)

Using Social Marketing to Grow Your Business

Abstract: Blogs and other Social Marketing tools are a great way to show your expertise, raise awareness for your company and solutions, and give something back to the community.  Adam Gartenberg, team lead for Social Marketing for IBM's Data Management products, will help demystify the Web 2.0 buzzwords you may have been hearing, and will show how easy it is to jump in and start participating with Social Marketing (and, oh yeah, grow your business, too).

I've uploaded a slight variant on the slide deck I'll be using to SlideShare.  Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be pulling in my speaker notes (as you can guess, a lot of the key points from the presentation will be spoken, not on the slides), but if you download the deck you should be able to read all the additional details.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on the presentation (now or afterwards, if you attend).

And as a reminder, this month's "Blogging 201" presentation is being moved to Friday to accommodate the above call.  More details here.
