SMC St. Louis Nabs Digital Crossroads Discount For Members

By Jason Falls

I’ll bet you never thought being a member of a sister organization in Louisville, Kentucky

would mean much to you, right? Well, allow me to try and dispel that notion.

Social Media Club of St. Louis has partnered with the Louisville Digital Association to

essentially make you a member of the LDA for a couple of days in October. Why is that

significant? Because it scores you a $50 discount — the member rate — for Digital

Crossroads, the LDA’s big, fall shin-dig complete with bourbon and blackjack!

Erik Qualman (Socialnomics, The Digital Leader), Jay Baer (Youtility, Hug Your Haters),

Tara Hunt (The Whuffle Factor) and Rick Wion (McDonald’s, The Kellogg Company)

headline a two-day digital marketing learning experience that is already becoming one of

the must-attend conferences in the region. Digital Crossroads takes place Thursday and

Friday, Oct. 20-21, 2016 at Horseshoe Southern Indiana Hotel & Casino, just across the

river from Louisville, Ky., and just a four-hour drive from St. Louis.


Hey? I’ve made the drive about once a month for two years working for Elasticity. Trust

me: It’s doable.


Here’s the kicker: Every ticket you buy for Digital Crossroads, benefits SMC St. Louis!

That’s right! You can help your organization just by attending a killer, two-day event. More

highlights of Digital Crossroads:

• The event will be co-hosted by award-winning broadcaster Jack Speer of NPR

• Thursday’s workshop sessions feature talks on data analysis and applications,

multimedia tips and tricks, how to achieve 4300% ROI on email marketing,

storytelling via snapchat, the rules of influencer marketing, local digital marketing

and social advertising

• Friday’s full-day conference also includes talks from Oracle’s David Hibbs, lead-gen

expert Nicole Hudson, cause marketing and PR rockstar Shonali Burke and

Michael Smith from Hearst Publications
