Seeing as I majored in New Media Communications at Oregon State, being invited to attend this year’s BlogWorld & New Media Expo in Los Angeles could be considered a dream come true.
The Expo, which ran from Nov. 3-5, is the first and only industry-wide conference, trade show, and media event dedicated to blogging, podcasting, social media, social networking, online video, music, Internet TV and radio. Conference attendees had the chance to attend cutting-edge educational sessions and network at the New Media Expo, which was packed with online business and marketing resources.
I was fortunate enough to tag along with my friends and directors of Netbiz Social- Rory Kaluza and Guedo Fanony. We secured a booth right next to WordPress at the very entrance of the Expo, which allowed us an ample amount of conference traffic.
Although we were available to speak about our numerous marketing resources, we were most excited to introduce Fan Catcher – which is a free Facebook application brands can use to increase the rate of fan conversion by improving their page with visual branding.
A big ‘thank you’ to the attendees who visited our booth, Netbiz for sending me, and to BlogWorld L.A. for the warm welcome. I look forward to seeing you all again next year!
