Welcome Newest Additions to Social Media Club Editorial Team


In December of 2010, we launched our first ever Social Media Club Editorial Team.  This was a small milestone for us, as we had never previously had a solid group of contributors to help share knowledge and resources with our SMC community. 

Over the last year, we’ve learned what our readers love and where their struggles are, which is why we’ve selected some excellent professionals as the newest additions of our editorial team.  

These ten new contributors have great professional experience that really helps round out the content provided each day on Social Media Clubhouse blog including a few with backgrounds in SEO, small business, higher ed and content strategy. 

Please help us welcome our newest contributors,
