Social Media Club Newsletter (9/15)



If you missed it, we introduced an expansion of our editorial team by hosting themed editorial content focusing on social good and nonprofit causes usage of social media. 

We hosted blogs from AJ Leon, “Geeking Out on Shakespeare: What Nonprofits Can Learn from The Bard,” which included a case study from the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust; a guest blog from David Neff, Author of Future of Nonprofits on “What does the mobile market look like for Nonprofits?“; and Sam Davidson, Founder of Cool People Care, who highlight why “More Nonprofits CEO’s Need to Tweet.

As we all know, social media touches all verticals so we want to make an effort the first week of each month to highlight on how specific industries are using social. 

Future months include healthcare, automotive, hospitality and many more…have an industry you want to see included? Email Jessica[at]socialmediaclub[dot]org. 


In May, we launched a Social Media Wine Club, in an effort to expand our membership benefits. We’ve partnered with the folks at VineCrowd, to bring you exclusive discounts to small wine producers throughout California. 

Over the last few months we’ve featured specials from Waxwing, K.furtado and Hirsch Vineyards, with more exciting Wine Club deals to come as the holiday season nears. The specials we’re extending our Social Media Club Open and Professional members often come with heavily reduced shipping costs, so consider it a great opportunity to expose yourself to smaller wine producers that you would never find at your neighborhood wine shop. With shipping available to 39 out of the 50 U.S. States, we hope you’ll consider taking advantage of a future Wine Club deal and let us know what you think by using #SMCWines hashtag. 



Performance Driven Marketing  comes to you with 12 years of experience in the marketing field ranging from yellow page and direct-mail marketing to outdoor and internet advertising.  We started the company in 2009 with the intent to deliver a track able and cost effective product in a niche that has been overpriced and under managed.  Performance Driven Marketing delivers measurable results at a digestible cost, with the comfort of actually seeing a person on a monthly basis to go over your account and any necessary changes or opportunities.  We still believe that business should be done with a handshake!
