The national winner receives $10,000 for the charity of their choice. esd and associates has chosen Morgan’s Wonderland as their charity.
“We wanted to host this Tweetup for a few reasons,” said Michelle Julazadeh, Social Media Strategist for esd and associates. “First of all, we wanted to create a space for the most vocal San Antonio business professionals to come together and share ways to grow online and become even stronger thought leaders. But more importantly, we want to create conversation, share strategies and put San Antonio on the social media map.”
These sentiments are echoed by Firstmark Credit Union, esd’s event co-sponsor.
“We couldn’t have come this far in the Social Madness contest without the support of other San Antonio businesses and fans,” said Firstmark Marketing Promotions Manager, Kelley Farwell. “This event will be a great way to say thank you and rally the best and brightest online local networker to help the San Antonio winners get to the top of the national competition.”
