Social Media Success Summit – @GaryVee Twitter Summary

Social Media Success Summit


Are you looking to grow your business for 2009 and beyond?

When I first discovered this conference they touted how to “Discover how to use social media to attract high-caliber customers and grow your business during the economic slump!” I felt the best way to attend this virtual conference over the course of the next month would be to follow to conversations via twitter search and my favorite conference/hashtag tracking software: tweetgrid.

Tonight’s Keynote by Gary Vaynerchuck: “How to Create a Mega-Following and Mega-Sales With Social Media Marketing” was no exception. Here are some of my favorite excerpts from the tweet stream during the call, lots of good nuggets to implement. They are for the most part in chronological order – Enjoy!
