Julie Perry Talks Social Media Marketing at Superyacht Summit

U.S. Superyacht Association's Superyacht Summit West Palm Beach, March 18 and 19, 2014.The U.S. Superyacht Association’s first annual Superyacht Summit is upon us! Happening March 18th & 19th in West Palm Beach, Florida, this two-day event will offer education, networking, and action for superyacht industry professionals worldwide — all of it leading up to the kickoff of the 29th Annual Palm Beach International Boat Show on March 20th.

Not only will I be attending both events, but I am honored to have been asked to speak on the topic of Social Media Marketing during the Superyacht Summit’s morning breakout session on Wednesday, March 19th. While I always wear my “yacht-stewardess book author” hat at every yachting event, my presentation will actually draw upon my 13 years of Internet marketing experience, predominantly in the digital media space, as I don my “digital-marketing executive” hat. (That’s my day job.)

More Details of Julie Perry’s Social Media Presentation

When asked to speak, I was given the name of the session, which was “Do Your Tweets Seem More Like Quacks?”. While I definitely think that’s a fun and catchy title, I have a feeling none of the attendees want to sit through an hour of content all centered around Twitter. (And if anyone is focusing their social marketing strategy on the Twitter platform, then they are definitely missing the boat superyacht.)

So instead, my talk will include an all-encompassing look at the role of social media marketing. I will first discuss how social media fits into a more integrated marketing strategy, which includes both traditional marketing tactics as well as both inbound and outbound digital opportunities, and then I will take a deeper dive into specific platforms (yes, including Twitter) and give some of my best tips for attacking each. More details below…


Stop Wasting Time, Money and Effort on Social Media:
Strategies for Social Marketing Success


Social media has been touted as the magic bullet of online marketing for years now, but are you still waiting for results? In this fast-paced seminar, agency pro Julie Perry will address social- and digital-media marketing trends, giving you experienced insight into what businesses should consider when implementing a social media strategy and how to leverage social media’s power for real business value. This seminar will answer:

  • Where along the sales funnel does social media have an impact?
  • What social platforms are worth your time and how can they integrate with more traditional marketing efforts?
  • What KPIs should you be considering?
  • How is social media now the “secret SEO sauce” to earn valuable organic search results and how do you take advantage of it?
  • What are some surefire tactics to consider when delving into Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Google+, and LinkedIn? And for goodness sake, is Pinterest even worth the effort?

Julie will discuss social media in terms of how it works into traditional marketing efforts and how you can effectively integrate your outbound and inbound campaigns. We will break out specific tactics for specific platforms—Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn, and Google+ among them—while also discussing the latest trends in content marketing and social media advertising.
