You may have noticed a new badge (below and down on the right column). This isn’t your average badge…this is a badge that is an outward sign of the growing social marketing movement, and I invite you to join.
You can get the badge, and a whole lot of social marketing resources (and new friends) as part of the Global Social Marketing Network (http://socialmarketers.net). Recently launched, it is free to join, open to all, and brings together social marketing minds from across the world–from the UK, to Australia, to Asia and other areas. There is even a map that communicates visually just how global social marketing is—and how much it is widely researched, studied and applied.
*I want to make clear that I have no financial gain if you join or not. I don’t “push,” “promote” or “sell” here (see my disclosure policy for more info). I just generally believe in the power of social marketing to transform how we work, how we think and how we make things better. I’m not alone in this belief–some of the greatest social marketing minds are members of the community including Nancy Lee (who wrote just a few of our trusted social marketing textbooks), Jeff French, Walter Wymer, Joe Starinchak, Craig Lefebvre, Mike Newton-Ward and many others.
If you join the network, feel free to stop by and say hello. I’d love to hear how you are helping change our world.
