The first blog post I wrote to kick off Socially Aligned was all about Social Media Marketing World 2013 (#SMMW13) and the huge impact it had on me. I was so inspired by the conference in fact, that I came home, created this site, and began working with clients a few weeks later!
Not only was there a world-class lineup of speakers, but I can't imagine a better networking environment. I came home with a long list of new tools, tips and tricks-of-trade, and more importantly, I met some amazing people from around the world. In fact, I'm currently partnering with some of the amazing women that I met in San Diego!
The good news? Social Media Marketing World is returning for a second year and is sure to be better than ever! The even better news? If you sign up by November 15, 2013 to attend #SMMW14 you will save $400!
