Two months ago, I had my commencement ceremony (in FL) and Inbound Marketing Summit scheduled for the same weekend. I knew I wouldn’t be able attend HubSpot’s Inbound Marketing Summit (IMS) because of my commencement ceremony. I was dying to meet one of the guest speakers, Guy Kawaski (Former chief evangelist of Apple, Co-founder of Alltop.com, Author of Enchantment) and learn more information about Inbound Marketing (I’m certified as an¬†Inbound Marketing Certified Specialist through HubSpot). At the end of the day, my husband and I moved to TN (due to an amazing job offer), I couldn’t attend both my commencement and #IMS2011. But, I’m excited to share the top ten takeaways by someone who has attended this, please click here.

Lessons Learned in Agri Marketing

I just came back from TN from the Agchat Foundation Conference called Agvocacy 2.0. It was a Social Media (SM) Training conference catered to Agricultural folks/farmers/ranchers, lessons include Blogging, Advanced Twitter/Facebook Tips, and Creating Impactful Images through Vblogging. Also, most importantly promoting Agvocacy! I really enjoyed meeting such amazing people who are making a difference in Agriculture and how food is brought to my plate.

Here I am brainstorming some ideas for my Blog with the tips learned at ACFC11:

I would like to say that I learned the most from John Blue (& Mace Thornton) from Truffle Media such as how to create better videos for your blog with great insightful tips that are perfect for people like myself who have a great attention to detail. Also, John had great suggestions on advanced twitter tools to keep me following more active users.

I really enjoyed both beginner and advanced blogging suggestions from Janice Person, Katie Pinke, and Ryan Goodman. Overall they mentioned that it is all about telling a story to your fans about your lifestyle: the good and the hectic moments. They also touched upon google analytics and the pro/cons of WordPress and Blogger.

I also learned great apps for my iPad/MacBook Pro from Chuck Zimmerman and we talked about how:¬†It’s Great to Be a Florida Gator!

I wish I had more time to speak with Mindy Jo Montgomery who wanted to chat but was heading out of the conference.

Here is the group picture (with my eyes open!)

Viral Marketing and World Wide Rave

This is an excellent post from one of my favorite authors, David Meermann Scott. He basically inspired me to be passionate social media marketing back in 2009. This PPT has innovative information to help boost your inbound content (ebooks, focus on your different buyer personas, etc). It is worth reading, please do so. You won’t regret it! I don’t want to give too much away this time, because I want you to be impressed with the tips he gives you. Imagine, if you could apply this information to your niche or industry, especially this great industry I cater my blog to, such as the four-legged industry which focuses on pets, horses, and other creatures that we love. I really appreciate those that think outside the box, like what David suggest on this PPT.

Social Media and Building Community

This PPT places emphasis on being humble in your community, focus on being a participant, not just the owner. You have to celebrate your customers and follow steps to strengthen your community. This can be easily applicable to the Equine, Pet, and Agriculture community where folks are educated and need to learn about what they’re giving their pets and/or now want to know where their meal comes from.
