Final Thoughts

Social medita is becoming an even larger forum for getting information to those who want it – and who want it quickly. We use our own blog which you can access from the Home Page (or any other page) from our website. We blog about lots of items which do not make it into the newsletter.

Did you know that you can post our blog posts on your Twitter account, facebook page, LinkedIn page, Google+, etc? You also have the ability to “rate” our blog posts by clicking on the number of stars you feel it deserves at the end of our post.

We want the message to get out and we encourage our readers to RT (re-tweet) out tweets that we run through Twitter. Our account is #SMUsteel and we are currently tweeting a lot about our #SteelSummitConference and we encourage you to do the same.

In LinkedIn I have my own personal page as well as a company page and a LinkedIn Group. Our group name is cleverly called: Steel Market Update. If you enjoy something we are posting please “Like” it so the search engines can see that the post is driving traffic and people like what is being provided.

Our new “App” which will be rolled out in early August for our Steel Summit Conference will allow those at the conference to post on social media directly from the app. This will be something we will talk about in more detail to those who have registered in the coming weeks.

Speaking of registration we are already pushing close to the total number of registrations that we had for last year’s conference. We are expecting a record setting crowd with the vast majority of attendees being manufacturing or distribution companies (but not all). We have a large number of new attending companies coming this year – both large and small. We have posted the names of the companies registered through the end of this past week on our website in the Steel Summit Conference section. If you would like to register and take advantage of our early bird rates you can do so by clicking here or calling our office at: 800-432-3475 (706-216-5440).

If you enjoy Steel Market Update please don’t hesitate to tell the social media world about us.

As always your business is truly appreciated by all of us here at Steel Market Update.
