Social Media Day – A Special Day For Social Media Marketing Professionals

By Quinn Hartley

British Columbia’s Capital city, Victoria, officially dubbed June 30 to be Social Media Day. This was even proclaimed by the city’s Mayor, Dean Forntin. The owner of local company Idea Wave approached city Councillor Chris Coleman, which got the ball rolling on this monumental day. Mashable, a popular online social media magazine picked up the story, generating massive interest worldwide. The magazine noted that Victoria was the first city worldwide to officially proclaim a Social Media Day.

To celebrate the day, a gathering was held at the Bengal Room in the famous Fairmont Empress hotel, an icon in Victoria’s inner harbour. Approximately 80 people attended, largely from the city’s “Twitter” community. It was a fantastic opportunity to meet and mingle with other influential social media users.

To further celebrate Social Media Day and acknowledge the power of social media, local Victoria BC company Stikky Media, experts in search engine optimization and social media marketing, started a contest. To enter, participants must like the Facebook fan page at, and post on the wall how social media has positively impacted their lives. All participants will have their names entered in a draw to win an iPad, held on July 22, 2010.

Three days into the contest, there have been several entries, all of which tell an interesting story reflecting on people’s personal experiences with social media. The most popular type of entry consists of participants sharing how social media has allowed them to connect with long lost friends and contacts, and stay in touch and share pictures with loved ones who reside far away.

Stikky Media, whose name refers to its ability and goal to make ideas “stik”, is a popular social media marketing company, offering social media marketing set up packages, social media marketing monthly maintenance packages and social media marketing consulting. Do not hesitate to contact them if you could use some social media marketing guidance, or want to win an iPad!
