You asked for it, so we’re coming back to San Diego.
Social Fresh is different. Less than 400 people attend each Social Fresh conference and we like it that way.
Social Fresh is a single track event. All attendees in the same room, all speakers on the same stage.
And we don't do panels. Each speaker owns the stage while they are up there, meaning they have to bring it. Each speaker has 30 minutes for their session, not an hour, forcing them to focus on specific topics and drop all the fluff.
I'm excited to have such an awesome lineup back in San Diego and hope to see you there. Make sure you check out the testimonials and our speaker info below. And if you have ANY questions, please shoot me a note.

Creating marketing campaigns that utilize blogger content has evolved past the standard ‘say something good about my brand’ norm. Experience based blogger programs are based on content producers weaving your brand into every day routines. Syndication of this content becomes natural and blogging suddenly feels a lot more like native advertising.
Content is often labeled as King but marketers have begun to lose sight on what should be achieved with content creation. At the beginning of each campaign one must ask; what is the goal or conversion metric that should be attained to build awareness, spark action, or convert to a purchase. Metrics are imperative to a strong content marketing strategy. Join us in this session as we go through a case study showing how content helped improve revenue growth and how to prove that compelling content can drive your desired outcome.
Happy customers are more likely to buy from the company multiple times and, just as importantly, recommend them to their peers. And social allows for more 1:1 engagement, that is the good news. The bad news is that, like everything else in business, providing customer support through social media requires a significant investment in resources. During this session, Chuck will discuss how companies are currently handling social customer service programs, how data can be used to optimize those efforts and how the leading companies are demonstrating value back to the business.
Content marketing is the new buzzword. And rightfully so, it works. But most businesses produce content that does little to support real business results. The missing piece is usually talent.
