The Connect Now Network’s upcoming Summer Social Media Summit has been generating tremendous excitement among Fraser Valley business owners since organizers announced that Steve Dotto, ‘Canada’s High-Tech Spokesman’, would deliver its keynote address.

Dotto will join ‘Marketing Motivator’ Jennifer Henzcel, Google+ expert Emily Chow, and Instagram expert Nate Henzcel to deliver a unique seminar designed to get business owners up to speed on the latest Internet marketing and social media opportunities.

Over 60% of small Canadian businesses are operating without a website, despite the fact that Canadians are the heaviest Internet users in the world. When the Harvard Business Review surveyed 2,100 companies about their social media use, only 12% felt they were using it effectively. The Summer Social Media Summit is an attempt to address the gap between consumer trends and business practice that is concerning many observers of the Canadian economy.

Steve Dotto brings tremendous value to the programme as the former host and producer of Dotto Tech, a technology-based television show that entertained and educated an audience of 20 million viewers per year. Dotto is slated to share what he has learned about utilizing the power of Youtube for promoting business. His current mission to build a Youtube channel of 100,000 subscribers by the end of the year should be of particular interest to Canadian entrepreneurs.

Per capita, Canadians are the Number 1 consumers of Youtube in the world, prompting Chris O’Neill, Canada’s country director for Google, to recently comment to The Canadian Press that “it’s just absolutely crazy […] how passionate Canadians are about YouTube.”

Summer Social Media Summit will be held at the Sandman Hotel at 32720 Simon Ave, in Abbotsford, from 1-6 pm. A 6-8 pm ‘Mix and Mingle’ at the neighbouring Moxie’s restaurant will follow.
