Today I got to do something a little different. I was the official photographer for the Frederick Chamber of Commerce!
Back by popular demand, the Frederick Chamber of Commerce held another awesome Social Media Conference Today!
Interactive seminars provided an intensive review of strategies and tools that businesses can use to reach out to customers and grow their bottom line.
The day featuring breakout sessions for beginning, intermediate, and advanced participants on topics such as Twitter, Facebook, email campaigns, blogging, and more. I loved meeting people today with with little or no experience in social media see it all come together and see how important this area can be to your business. I should know- my website, blog, fan page on Facebook, and my Twitter have been HUGE for my business.
I had a really great time today. My inner nerd was in HEAVEN! I learned a lot and finally met some people in *real life* who I only knew in the online world.
Here are a few photos from the day. The rest can be viewed HERE.
