Special Guest Presenter – James Ball
James is the mind behind http://noteasytoforget.com/ and http://hellonorthgeorgia.com/ to name a couple. James will be presenting his marketing experience, what inspired him and what still inspires him. I know we’re really going to enjoy everything James brings to us so make sure you don’t miss this event!
Topics for open discussion will include:
Foursquare – using it for longtail search marketing and community advocacy. Also the fear(s) – both real and imagined – about using geolocation services to interact with social media.
Blogging – is it dead? Dying? If so can that trend be reversed and does it need to be? Ken Cook has published over 3000 blog posts just in the last decade but also uses open engagement as a mainstay in community building.
BRING YOUR FRIENDS!
