Austin, Texas (PressExposure) September 30, 2011 -- Social Media in 7 Minutes (SMI7M), the revolutionary online training program designed to not only educate small business owners on how to apply social media into their marketing plan, but also to provide a practical tool which will allow them to implement their plan in just 7 minutes a day, is being released to the public on Saturday, October 1, at http://SocialMediaIn7Minutes.com.
SMI7M was developed by Black Box Social Media, LLC (BBSM). BBSM is a social media marketing for business consulting group who works with higher end clients, such as former Reality TV Stars, Professional Sports Teams, International Motivation Speakers, Gurus, Infomercial products, etc... The goal of creating SMI7M was to provide small businesses with the opportunity to understand, create, and implement an affordable social media marketing plan that works in today's tough economic climate.
SMI7M is unique in the fact that the video trainings are constantly being updated to adapt to the ever evolving dynamic nature of the social media industry. So when Facebook makes a change to it's processes, SMI7M updates it videos accordingly.
"Since BBSM is an active social media marketing company that provides these services for its customers, we're always on the cutting edge of this technology," says BBSM Co-Founder Curt Maly. "Since we're constantly performing these services for our clients, we know when changes occur and we understand how to adapt our processes accordingly. With SMI7M, we're able to share this knowledge with you as well."
The second unique factor is that this training comes with the opportunity to utilize the 7 Minute Dashboard, which is an all in one social media tool that allows you to engage, post, and communicate with all of your social networking sites from one easy to use location. This rare combination of training plus the tools to provide practical application of knowledge make Social Media in 7 Minutes a must have for small business owners.
"Having the knowledge is one thing, but being able to quickly and easily put that knowledge into practical application is the key to a successful marketing plan," says BBSM Co-Founder Nick Bridges. "The 7 Minute Dashboard allows the user to manage and engage with all of their accounts from one location. You can update all of your social media sites, blogs, answer emails, create text message blasts, email blasts, set up Twitter auto responders, etc... without having to log into 40 different sites. The simplicity of the execution leads to consistent utilization and will yield long-term profitable results."
Currently, SMI7M offers over 30 video step by step 'how-to' trainings with workbooks revolving around the business utilization of social sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, and Foursquare. The first part of the video series, it's 'foundation' part, details how to set up and design each social site; which is perfect for beginners. The remaining trainings gradually increase in it's degree of difficulty as the creators slowly reveal their ninja tricks that will allow you to unlock the unlimited potential of this great marketing tool. The trainings also have manuals on how to set up online directories, such as Google Places, Yelp, BingLocal, YahooLocal, etc... to further boost your SEO and social interaction.
As new technologies emerge, such as Google+, SMI7M will create new how-to videos to show users exactly how to set up and utilize these latest technologies.
"I love writing on the subject of social media, but the problem is that 15 minutes after I publish an article, the information is already outdated and obsolete," says BBSM CEO Tom Bukacek. "With SMI7M, if something changes, we change the video. We're performing these very same tasks for our clients, so we know what's happening in the industry. When we see a process change, we record it and put it online for others to see."
No other social media product combines the ever evolving social media 'how-to' video training with a do it yourself tool. Plus, each month, you will also be able to attend their special update webinars, which will detail some of the biggest changes in social media for a given month and have access to their informative forums designed to answer questions that new users will have regarding social media.
