Social Media Day – A Special Day For Social Media Marketing Professionals
The capital city of British Columbia Canada, Victoria, proclaimed that June 30 was officially Social Media Day. Social Media Day was officially proclaimed by the City’s Mayor. The owner of local company Idea Wave approached the a city councillor, Chris Coleman and initiated what later became the proclamation of this first type of officially named event in the world. The story was picked up by Mashable, a popular social media online magazine, on which it made front page news and sparked numerous reader comments.
In honor of the special day, a gathering was held at a classy restaurant and lounge inside the iconic Fairmont Empress Hotel. Approximately 80 people accumulated at the Bengal Room to mingle and discuss social media. A large number of these attendees were active in the local “Twitter” community, and this event gave the opportunity for those who often interact solely on Twitter to meet face to face.
Stikky Media, a Victoria local search engine optimization and social media marketing company, decided to contribute to Social Media Day by encouraging others to acknowledge the power of these social mediums. They organized a Facebook contest, encouraging others to “like” the fan page (http://www.facebook.com/stikkymedia) and post on the wall how social media has positively impacted their lives. At the end of the contest, July 22, 2010, all participants will have their names entered in a draw for a chance to win an iPad.
At the time of writing, three days into the contest, several entries have been made to the draw. Each entry reflects on the personal experiences of that particular person and what amazing things social media has done for them. For example, several entrants shared stories reflecting on how social media, Facebook in particular, has allowed them to reconnect and share pictures with family members and friends who live far away.
Stikky Media, whose name refers to its ability and goal to make ideas “stik”, is a popular social media marketing company, offering social media marketing set up packages, social media marketing monthly maintenance packages and social media marketing consulting. Do not hesitate to contact them if you could use some social media marketing guidance, or want to win an iPad!
