When you get to spend your day chatting with the likes of Amy Porterfield, Mari Smith, and Stacy Zapar, you know you have to write about it! This is not something that happens every day – at least not to me! But beyond this amazing story, there was a lot to learn and a lot to take away from Social Media Day San Diego 2013.
Sunday, June 30th was Social Media Day. A day recognized around the world by those who love all things social media. Fortunately for us San Diegans, we have a serious hub of social media leaders, adopters, and influencers. It’s kind of unfair when you think about it, but, hey, I’ll take it!
The day started off with 1600 registered participants! That’s a LOT of people coming to one place to learn about social media. To be fair, it is San Diego, and I’m sure not all registered participants showed up. I mean it was a super hot day and I’m sure the beach and the surf steered a few people astray…
But for those of us that participated, we were not disappointed! The educational tracks started off with a Facebook panel with none other than Amy Porterfield and Mari Smith. If you don’t know who these amazing ladies are, I’ve linked their names to their Facebook pages. I highly recommend you follow both of them. They are pretty big deals in the social media world. It was really cute too when one guest totally “fangirled” when she was able to ask these two ladies a question! Read down a little further to find their tips for Facebook marketing success.
The second educational track was focused on LinkedIn, Google+, and Instagram. Stacy Zapar is the most connected person on LinkedIn with 37,000 connections! Lynette Young is a Google+ advocate and Claudia Sandoval is the leader of the San Diego Igers. These three ladies were great and I learned a lot in this session. I actually used to think I knew a lot about LinkedIn but Stacy Zapar taught me so much in a short period of time! Read on to see their tips and advice.
