I found this meeting to be very informational. I was especially curious about Twitter as I was not a user. I started to work my way around the site yesterday and now I'm captivated. Thank you panelist, you all did a great job!
Great presenters, great recommendations that you can take and apply to your own business.
Dividing the speakers up by social network (LinkedIn, Twitter, FB) worked. The three presentations were well organized and real practical information was delivered.
The presenters were good- but I need a more advanced panel
Very useful information on the top three social media outlets. They provided practical tips that I can use right away.
The organizer and panel was very organized and remained on track with the meeting agenda while also attempting to answer some slightly off topic questions.
This was an excellent presentation. The three principal speakers knew their stuff and presented organized steps to maximize the social media platforms. Andrew moderated well and added his expertise. Well worth the time and $.
