Free Workshop on Using Social Media For Research set for May 23rd at Harrisburg University

Amy Marshall, Partner and Chief Operating Officer of Webbed Marketing, will lead a workshop “Using Social Media for Research” to help attendees understand how to harness the massive amounts of real-time data are available via social media.

 
PRLog - Jan. 18, 2012 - From pharmaceutical companies taking a new drug to market, to legislators advocating new public policy, understanding your audience is a key part of any communication strategy. Traditional focus groups are time consuming, expense and subject to the observer effect. However, social media research processes can analyze thousands of tweets, blog posts and other social media content and determine key themes, sentiments, velocity, influencers and more. This process can analyze larger sampling sets, without the observer effect, with fewer resources than traditional focus groups.

As part of the free 2012 Social Media Summit set for May 23 at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology, Amy Marshall, Partner and Chief Operating Officer of Webbed Marketing, will lead a workshop “Using Social Media for Research” to help attendees understand how to harness the massive amounts of real-time data are available via social media.

The workshop is set for 11 am. to noon., on May 23, 2012.  It is part of the free 2012 Social Media Summit taking place at the University.  To register for the free workshop or the free 2012 Social Media Summit, go online to www.HarrisburgU.edu/SMS2012

Marshall joined Webbed Marketing as a partner in 2007, where she serves as an expert in social media marketing, social media best practices, social media guidelines and online marketing and social media policies. In August, Webbed Marketing expanded its capabilities even broader with its acquisition by Cleveland-based Fathom Online Marketing, one of the top 25 SEO firms in the nation. Marshall has extensive experience with SEO, allowing her to excel at integrating online marketing campaigns for clients. Additionally, she has worked in-depth with healthcare and membership organizations in regard to online marketing and is deeply involved in analyzing social media and data for clients. Her client focus has been working with healthcare organizations and systems such as OhioHealth in Columbus, Ohio; NHS Human Services in Philadelphia, PA; and TriHealth in Cincinnati, Ohio.
