How We Rode the Social Media Wave:
Lessons Learned from a Technology Marketing Effort
You know that social media is the new business as usual. You know you should incorporate social media into your marketing tool box, posting content not only on your Web site but also on YouTube™, SlideShare, and other services—not to mention in blogs and through Twitter®, LinkedIn®, and maybe even Facebook® sites. But no one talks about exactly how to get out past the breakers and truly ride the social media wave and get results… until now.
This 90-minute webinar-based case study gives you an insider’s peek at a real-world technology marketing campaign. Implemented in 2010, that campaign strategically and proactively used social media along with traditional marketing tools.

More about using social media in tech transfer
As discussed extensively in Fuentek’s blog and throughout the industry, social media tools represent a powerful yet cost-effective tool for marketing technology transfer—both specific opportunities and your organization’s program more generally.
The term “social media” simply refers to Web-based tools that allow people to communicate with each other. The popularity and rapid adoption of social media tools such as Twitter, blogs, Facebook, and LinkedIn has been tremendous.
For technology transfer offices (TTOs), social media is the new version of an e-mail newsletter. Information that previously would have appeared in a periodic e-mail newsletter now appears in a variety of social media outlets, such as a blog or Twitter. TTOs have much to gain from incorporating social media into their communications toolbox.
