Welcome to the Social Media Club- St. Louis’ (SMCSTL) new website. We are thrilled to serve the St. Louis community with informative and education events, speaking engagements and supporting other like-minded organizations. Over the years the landscape of social media has evolved quickly from catchy hashtags, video capabilities to integrated digital marketing automation tools.

“Many organizations don’t know where to start and feel overwhelmed by the many social networks out there,” said Erin Moloney, President of SMCSTL and Director of Digital and Social Media Marketing at St. Louis-based technology consulting firm, Perficient, Inc. “We see a lot of compelling things being done by community organizations using social media. We wanted to bring those people together to tell their stories and offer tips and guidance to St. Louis non-profit marketers and leaders.”

At the half-day conference, local leaders will present their experiences and discuss how non-profit organizations can most effectively harness the power of social media in their marketing efforts.
