Sunday – Leveraging Social Media

Sam Harrelson, Publisher, CostPerNews

Well done! Learned a great deal!!!!!!

———————————————————————————————————————-
Sam provides great insight and experience on many social media options.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Good session for beginners who don’t know social media sites. I was looking for something at a more advanced level.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Awesome presentation, very informative.

———————————————————————————————————————-
1. No handouts, why not? Outline, urls, etc…
2. No twitter “how to” examples for affiliates. Coupon, theme, personal vs. website, vehicle examples; insurance, loans, games.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Speaker was very knowledgeable but room configuration (large pole in the middle) made the session a little less desirable.

———————————————————————————————————————-
It’s warm in the room. Clearly not enough seats. Need to get more chairs in the room. Speaker talked too vague in terms, seemed to jump around a little hard to follow. Clearly speaker is very knowledgeable. But I didn’t really walk away with any specific concepts, points.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Could have been about 30 min longer to go into more detail

———————————————————————————————————————-
Sam did a great presentation on social media. Learned a lot of good strategies to leverage these tactics in the right way as a marketer.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Great overview of tools, would like more practical examples.

———————————————————————————————————————-
I have not used the social networking channel yet and was unsure how I could. The session provided a better understanding, such as twitter search and trwhil.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Spent too long on one subject. Did emphasize values of twitter-like tools. Entertaining and engaging powerpoint presentation.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Interesting, Sam presents well. However as Sam wrapped up, it was really a presentation on technologies in the social media space.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Very informative! Really enjoyed and got some great ideas and input.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Very good session, he knows what’s happening in terms of new web applications.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Very interesting. Would be interesting to see demos of each social site. I like his encouragement for interaction and questions.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Great!

———————————————————————————————————————-
Great show. Thanks for bringing in seats.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Nice coverage of social media websites, there is a twitter love is you! Wish you had talked about social shopping sites like stylefeeder.com that have built apps on facebook to grow business.

———————————————————————————————————————-
More examples would have been helpful (of how to actually use the apps for Marketing), but good overall nonetheless.

———————————————————————————————————————-
For a general overview, I think there could have been more of a well rounded view of tools. Sound was low in the beginning so hard to hear – but all in all – pretty good, great topic.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Good overview of new/up and coming social companies/tools. Would have liked to hear/learn more on how affiliates/merchants could leverage and integrate otherwise extremely helpful.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Great!

———————————————————————————————————————-
Stats at beginning were boring. Examples not well thought out. Too much time spent on twitter. Not enough examples how merchants or affiliates are using these services successfully. Geared towards how to use for self. *good example is jetblue

———————————————————————————————————————-
The content did not deliver on the description for the session. It was really a “what is twitter” session than a “How to leverage”

———————————————————————————————————————-
Great info didn’t talk into mic enough, could barely hear him at back of room so missed lots of details. Fast paced. Good stuff what I could hear – whew! 

———————————————————————————————————————-Interesting! The guys works best with Q and A.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Very thorough. In spite of twitter preference, still managed to fit a lot of information about many social networks in a short time frame. Also added lots of good tertiary information about each network, such as desktop clients.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Great information, good direction to not waste time, reasons for implementation, great marketing strategy

———————————————————————————————————————-
Excellent presentation and content.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Excellent presentation, good info, engaging speaker, very accessible.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Good session. Very knowledgeable about social media. Would have liked to see one real example of how social media has been used to support affiliate marketing programs.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Information was helpful but not for mass marketing.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Insightful with good focus and recommendations about social media. A lot of ideas to consider.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Good introduction to “What’s Hot” in social networking. Some good tools that aggregate the content.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Lots of interesting information.

———————————————————————————————————————-
Some good information, had to fight sleep though. I came away feeling I learned something but wasn’t fully sure what that was. Hope I can quantity when I get the powerpoint later or look at the video later.

————————————————————————————————————-

I had fun and learned some things myself during the presentation. Glad to see a couple of others did as well.
