Accessible SEO Conferences, Working with Social Media Interns, & Helping Your Community Share the Love...This Is THE LATEST!
Hi friends! 👋 Me, again. I'm Stephanie, the Director of Audience Engagement and Community at IMPACT, and I'm taking over today's edition of THE LATEST while Liz is off in her happy place: the intersection of beer and marketing.
It wouldn't be my style to do this without a video and as you can see from the thumbnail, I had fun with this one:
As I mentioned in my video, my happy place is my community. Which community that is depends on the day as I'm part of many great communities. I shared in my guide to online community management how being part of the LGBTQ+ community has provided me with guidance and support. Since June is Pride Month, this community is extra special to me at the moment.
Everyone needs a community. Humans have a desire to be part of something. To belong. From tech user groups and networking events to online learning communities, there's something for every professional. What do you love about your community? Reply and let me know. 😀
And to you, my community of smart inbound professionals looking for relevant and actionable marketing insights, I've got you covered:

Google is making expert advice about SEO much more accessible. The new, 100% free Google Webmaster Conferences aim to take the exclusivity out of SEO conferences.

Say hello to your new, local SEO community! This initiative is a step in the right direction to level the playing field and make actionable SEO insights more accessible to everyone.
✍️ The Good, Bad, & Ugly Approaches to Working With a Social Media Intern
Like many marketing professionals my age, my first job was as a social media intern. Because, well, I'm a millennial.
