I had the honor to present a presentation on Pinterest as part of the Business First Social Media Summer Camp at SparkSpace – in Columbus Ohio.
If you haven’t been to SparkSpace – go! It’s one of the greatest meeting places I’ve ever been to. It’s professional and creative. It’s room and the staff is extremely accommodating.
Mark Henson – the “creator & chief imagination officer” of SparkSpace is brilliantly creative and gave us a great presentation on blogging. Mark’s blog Spark New Thinking if brilliant and entertaining.
Charly Bauer from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream gave a great demonstration of how Google+ is working for their business. OK OK! I get it – I’ll spend more time with Google +! 🙂 Charly was a really great speaker, it was awesome hearing from a company USING the Google + instead of someone like, well me who’s telling you to use it! More on Google+ in another blog.
Christina Christian with Yelp.com gave a lively presentation about how Yelp.com connects people with great local businesses. Yelp.com is community of real people who are passionate about sharing their local experiences, and a marketing tool owners are learning to maximize− for free. And it’s not just for restaurants!
