Glenwood Springs Speakers for the Social Mobile Media at its Best "Live the Dream"

The “Mobile/Social Media at its Best – Live The Dream” seminar will invite successful local social media experts in each city to speak in order to make the seminar a community event. This seminar is a very interactive, audience-involved workshop. Attendants will have opportunities to network, learn new free tools to make their business successful, interact through text message surveys with real time corresponding graphs and many opportunities for audience questions.

At our Glenwood Springs event we have 2 local experts joining us in the panel discussion. Josh Lewis of Blue Tent Marketing and Anna Gauldin who manages the Glenwood Chamber Social Networking sites.

the Web" by engaging a wide range new media marketing channels from
dynamic websites, search marketing and web analytics, to email marketing
and social media.
