"Learn How to Use Social Media In 
A Regulated Environment to
Grow Your Business"
Featuring: Lael Sturm, Managing Partner, LPSS Digital Marketing
Lael Sturm founded LPSS Digital Marketing to deliver effective growth strategies and tactics to profitable businesses of all sizes.  Using social, search, content marketing (blogs and newsletters) and other digital tools is essential but many businesses lack the expertise, time or inclination to maximize these channels. Regulated industries like banking, mortgage and law present unique challenges and LPSS has experience navigating those regulatory environments. The LPSS team advises businesses on how to get the most from digital marketing and can also take the work off their plate altogether and do everything for them.  Lael has been in online marketing for 25 years (since the earliest days of the web), has worked with large and small companies including MTV, Nokia, Microsoft and CNET/CBS Interactive and earned his MBA in Finance at Columbia Business School.  He is a San Francisco native and still lives in the city with his wife and two children.
