IASMP is an industry standard for Social Media professionals.

Join our growing tribe of hundreds Social Media professionals for ongoing training, support and mentoring. Join us on regular meetups, networking events and grab yourself a bargain with many free or heavily discounted tools and products.

We offer everything every other standard association offers, but with several added benefits:

Live Workshops, Meetups and Events

Come in, meet the team and spend some time with your peers working ‘on’ as opposed to ‘in’ your business. We are committed to teaching you all of the common sense (but not always common practice) social media strategies and techniques in a productive and fun environment! We often offer huge discounts on many events organised by our partners and free entry (and often complementary drinks & nibbles) to all meetups organised by us.

Digital Resources

Solid and proven training resources (video and audio courses complete with written guidance and workbooks) from some of the leading experts in our industry, helping you gain more attention, recognition and ultimately revenue as a Social Media Professional. We’re working with many recognised experts and have exclusive access to their courses and programmes (or ability to offer them to our members for half price or less). In addition to that, if you developed a course, wrote a book or created any digital resources yourself, we will be happy to feature them or even help you in sales.


IASMP members are listed on our Online Directory of Approved Social Media Professionals. This is viewed daily by prospective clients and will increases your online visibility and enquiry rate. You can link to your own website and Social Media accounts and showcase your work to colleagues and potential employers or customers.

Discount Card

We’re launching a a special Social Media Pro Discount Card which will give you from -10% to -50% on many useful tools and courses. Our discount card is a win – win situation for everyone, saving you money on recurring payments for social media management/ social listening/ analysis tools and promoting less known, but equally brilliant indie studios and software developers.
