Communicating Socially At #NAMA

NAMA Social Media PresentersOn Friday morning we had a truly awesome session on social media at the NAMA convention. Here’s the panel. Yes, we’re shooting video with a Flip, taking a photo with an iPhone, tweeting via iPhone and pounding on a Mac. I like this picture. Some may ask, “What’s wrong with this picture?” I say nothing. We’re just socializing, interacting and engaging. Included in photo are me on the right and panelists: David Coustan, Vice President, Digital, Edelman Digital, Kyle Flaherty, Director of Marketing and Social Media, BreakingPoint Systems, David Brazeal, General Manager, Learfield Data.

During the session we showed a live feed of all #NAMA tweets via Twitter and there were a bunch. Thanks to everyone who participated. I’m not sure if I have the right number but I think there were at least 165 Twitter posts during the hour of our session this morning using the #NAMA hashtag! Pretty awesome. I’m going to go back through them and do some responding later. We had over 100 people in the session and it’s very possible we had that many more “watching” and participating online. It was a great live example of the impact and how you can use these new tools, especially when promoted ahead of time. I’ve been promoting it along with our panelists and others that I’ve noticed in the online discussion.

Thank you to Brownfield for providing our internet access and to Dave Patterson, John Deere Credit, and the whole planning committee and other session sponsors for helping put this together. I hope we get to do it again.
