As of March 2011, Social Media Examiner has 59,000 email subscribers, 33,000 Facebook fans, over 60 writers and half a million page views per month.
In addition, the site has generated almost $2 million in sales; ranks among the top 12 websites on two Technorati lists – business and small business; and ranks among the top 1,500 websites in the entire United States, according to Alexa.
Imagine how much it would cost you to attend a week-long conference with 24 different experts in a faraway city. The conference fee, airfare, hotel room, rental car and restaurants would set you back several thousand dollars.
But you can attend an online conference with 24 different social media pros like Stelzner for a fraction of that cost at the upcoming third-annual social media conference, Social Media Success Summit 2011.
“LinkedIn and Facebook have gone through many changes just in the last two months,” Stelzner said.
