One of the best aspects of social media is how open and responsive experts are in the industry. Last week I was fortunate enough to attend Social Slam 2012 in Knoxville, Tennessee. The one day conference included INCREDIBLE speakers including Mitch Joel, Stanford Smith, Jay Baer, DJ Waldon, Marcus Sheridan, Tom Webster, Stephanie Wonderlin, Jon Moss, Sean McGinnis and many, many more. It was literally one of the most amazing events I ever attended and I’m still blown away by how many kind, generous, extremely talented speakers were there. I got a lot of one-on-one time with many of them and I’ll be sharing the core tips from each.
However, I wanted to kick the review of Social Slam top tips by staring with an interview of Mark W. Schaefer, author of the Tao of Twitter and Return on Influence, was the conference organizer and final keynote. He’s an amazing guy who I’m lucky enough to call a friend. Here’s a brief interview Don did with him at the Social Slam after party.
