About the FREE webcast
Communicators are continually being asked to accomplish more with less in these challenging economic times. Budgets for communications and marketing are meeting increased scrutiny, with increasingly insistent demands from leadership to justify spending and prove significant return on investment.

Why not use budget-friendly social media? Take it from a social media guru who has taken on the social media space with YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and a well-known blog in the health care community.

Mayo Clinic's social media leader Lee Aase will show you how you can:

  • Create a multimedia online newsroom for less than the cost of a weekly trip to Starbucks
  • Make social media a core competency for your communications and marketing staff, not a separate organizational silo
  • Engage your customers and employees as ambassadors for your brand
  • Prove the value of social media tools for employee communications before you ask for any funding
  • Think creatively to find innovative practical business applications for free or extremely low-cost Web tools
