The Social Media Marketing & Advertising conference was buzzing by 8:30 this morning as the speakers and attendees arrived at Miami Beach.
Breakfast and refreshments were a huge hit – talk about value and great service! The Ronald W Shane Centre is a wonderful venue – perfect for the number of attendees, (120 approximately) well appointed and the view is a definite bonus with a lovely balcony to enjoy the activity on the waterway. All this and the conference hasn’t even begun!
Murray Newlands organized a great team of volunteers to welcome the attendees, registering them quickly, answering questions and keeping everyone on track with timing. Sze Liu Janie Coffee and Maude Eaton.
We heard from Mark Schmulan from Constant Contact as he shared insights into small businesses using social media marketing to great advantage. How can you generate $4,000,000 in 72 hours? Like bacon? Chocolate covered bacon?
The quality and expertise of the speakers was awesome. Jay Berkowitz, Murray Izenwasser, Craig Agranoff, John Chow, Greg Rollett, Pierre Zarokian and Jeff Sass entertained and shared valuable insights, and slide share presentations into the new world of social media marketing in the morning sessions.
