The Social Media Council is free and open to all ‘client-side’ practitioners of Social Media or those that wish to further their learning of the discipline. Vendors or Consultants are not allowed to join as we want to create a secured place, where brands can share their experiences and learn from people with the same challenges, restrictions and requirements.

We see a need for a ‘brands-only’ community dedicated to Social Media as most of the numerous open platforms and groups are dominated by consultants and vendors to gain attention and generate leads. What you won’t get out there is the been-there, done-that experience from peers. This is the chance to connect with people like you that give you unbiased answers and don’t want to sell you anything.

We want to give you a platform to reach out to other ‘client-side´ members to broaden your network, share your learnings and challenges and get fast and unbiased answers to your questions. We also seek to use our resources to showcase great European work, understand metrics, effectiveness and ROI and help further the understanding and advancement of social media for the purposes of deeper consumer engagement, loyalty, affinity, retention and sales. In the future the SMCE will publish white-papers, weekly newsletters, host events to ensure members are up to date on market movements and best practice standards.
