Jan. 30, 2012 - PRLog -- Social Media Week ( announced today that Constant Contact will serve as the Small Business Sponsor of the next edition of the conference this February 13-17, 2012. A unique, weeklong global conference, Social Media Week connects people from around the world to conversations about emerging trends in social and mobile media. Powering small businesses, Constant Contact’s role as global supporting sponsor will greatly enhance the Social Media Week experience for small businesses and non-profit organizations.

Social Media Week is one of the world’s most unique global conversation platforms. Taking place in 12 cities simultaneously, its February conference will offer a series of interconnected activities and events addressing the global impact of social media and its role effecting economic, cultural, political and social change.

To celebrate the launch of Social Campaigns, Constant Contact’s newest online marketing tool that helps small businesses quickly and easily run results-oriented social media marketing campaigns on Facebook®, Constant Contact will be giving away $2,000 each day in February in a daily drawing as part of the company’s “Fanbruary” campaign.  During this time, any new or existing Constant Contact customer that signs up for Social Campaigns will be entered to win; winners will also receive a free year subscription to the product and a custom campaign designed by Constant Contact.

Throughout Social Media Week, Constant Contact will participate in seven live events in New York, Miami, Washington D.C., San Francisco and London, in addition to a teleseminar and an online series.

“Social media provides a great opportunity for small businesses to level the playing field.  In many ways, small businesses have an advantage over larger companies because they are already masters at providing an excellent customer experience and naturally building lasting relationships,” said Mark Schmulen, general manager, social media, at Constant Contact. “Social Media Week is a great event. We are looking forward to connecting with small businesses all around the world and helping to educate them on how they can turn social media into a real, measurable marketing channel that supercharges their word of mouth and helps grow their business”

Unlike other conferences, Social Media Week goes beyond just providing content and engages with top brands and companies. Through these partnerships and with the help of advisors and boards, Social Media Week cultivates top quality content, free and open to anyone who wants to participate. Those who are unable to attend in person can follow the action and join the conversation online.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer a coordinated effort during Social Media Week to support the small business sector. As a free global conference that connects individuals from all experience levels and professional backgrounds, we have been aware of the need to make our small business focused content more accessible. With Constant Contact’s support, Social Media Week is able to empower small businesses to leverage social and mobile media to reach and engage their customers in new and innovative ways.” said Brady Hahn, Director of Sales & Business Development of Social Media Week.  

Last year’s Social Media Weeks drew more than 55,000 registered attendees and 288,000 more following the events via livestream. The upcoming conference will be the biggest to date and is expected to draw thousands of participants from across the globe.
