Because of a death in my family, I didn’t get to go to attend the Bigfoot Social Media Conference. Since I didn’t get to go, hey, let’s hang out with some people who did. Let’s hear what they took from the conference.
This journey takes me to Allyn and to Lennard K’s Boathouse & Restaurant. I attended a Relationship Builder workshop put on by North Mason Chamber of Commerce. It was a great time because again, I’m seeing different businesses and organizations. I get to hear how social networking is helping them. There is a strong difference between the “online” to the “brick and mortar” to the “personal” personality moment. I’m of the thought that there should be no difference to the three and sometimes it really shows. I want to see how others use social networking and the internet to promote what they do. I want to hear how successful they’ve been. Here’s a nice video from David of Hood Canal Adventures
best believe I want to cover a story on his business talking about his online presence.
Wow! He’s talking some impressive numbers and he just told you how he’s getting known. Every word he says is correct. I had no clue his business even existed until he found me on Facebook. Hood Canal is a beautiful place to explore via water.
Listening to others and how their businesses are growing and prospering because of the usage of internet/social networking is great. The same things that I mentioned about Frank Kenny previously others were attesting to as well. It was great to see how others had been motivated by Mr Kenny, it was.
I want to say many, but not all attended Bigfoot. I asked Frank if he could give me demographics of who did attend. However, it just happened and it’s 7 am, how is he going to be able to compile and answer this?
give me credit for not thinking on that go me! Yea. Many were Kitsap/Mason people, but some also attended from further locations than that.
One thing I mentioned was the term “site metrics”. I tend to get nerdy, so for all of you who attended, I’m compiling the “easy” explanation of what I was speaking to, using this very site as example. I want you to understand because like Frank, I want you to succeed too. Kitsap and Mason counties together have beautiful things we need to promote more often. Let’s get that word out there, and you as business owners or non profit people, we want to get that word out.
We were all from different places in life. But we could all sit in the same room and share ideas and thoughts. We all, in the course of one hour learned together by sharing our unique experiences. What a cool idea. Thanks again to the North Mason Chamber of Commerce for giving me the opportunity to attend.
