The Business North West 2009 conference starts today, and I-COM are down there (Stand 5, right by the door) exhibiting our online marketing wares and trying like mad to educate North West businesses about the potential of social media as a means of driving traffic, promoting your brand and responding to customer queries.
We’re encouraging conference-goers to join in by uploading photos and live updates on the various goings on at Manchester Central today and tomorrow to Twitter, Facebook, Flickr and a variety of other Social Media sites via their iPhones, Blackberries, Netbooks and Laptops – and for those people who don’t have a mobile internet device or a Twitter account (god forbid), we’ve even laid on a few extra PCs at our stand which are kept permanently logged in to a specially created Twitter account: BNW09_Feedback.
Social Media is on the rise internet-wise, and with Google desperately trying to figure out a productive way of incorporating it into their search results it’s inevitable that it’s going to become extremely important to business’ online presence the world over. Our attempt to take the Business North West 2009 conference online is an experiment, designed to demonstrate this potential to the blissfully uninitiated.
We’ve set up accounts on the following Social Media sites:
- Wordpress Blog
We’ve also set some of our employees the task of roaming the event taking pictures, short videos and making comments on the various speakers and presentations.
If you’ve got any questions about Social Media and its potential for your business, we encourage you to head over to the I-COM stand (number 5) for a practical demonstration.
