SocialFresh East: Stuff That Got Me Thinking

by Lindsay Sanchez, Social Engagement Manager

Last week, I had a chance to attend the SocialFresh East Conference in Orlando, Florida which featured 2-days worth of amazing speakers. Honestly, the lineup at this conference was the best of any I have ever attended. The CEO of SocialFresh, Jason Keath, was right when he warned the audience, “There’s too much awesome to retain.” The following are my picks for the most awesome bits…

1. From Brainstorming:  ”You’re Holding It Wrong” by Jason Keath (@JasonKeath

Why does brainstorming session usually feel like more of a drizzle of ideas rather than a full on hurricane? Because we don’t plan ahead and we’re afraid to be creative.

Next time you want to generate ideas, you’re best bet is to ask for the participants to create a list beforehand, which they submit anonymously.  That way no one is looked at funny for submitting the “bad idea.” Plus, sometimes you need the bad ideas to get to the good ideas. 

2. From The Best Social Tools by Sarah Evans (@PRSarahEvans

This was definitely the most helpful presentation… pretty much ever. Sarah Evans, a PR powerhouse and the energizer bunny of social media, showed us tools that make social media easier for her and discussed how they can be used for different purposes. You want to know what they are? She made published the whole presentation here  What a gal.

3. From Hard Truths by Jay Baer (@JayBaer): 

I wish I could say Social Fresh East ended on a high note, instead it ended with a wake up call.  Jay Baer, best selling author and marketing consultant, told us to pick up a shot gun and put down the rifle… in regards to social media, that is.  The rifle approach to social media is about concentrating efforts on one platform. The shot gun is hitting your audience on social media from all angles - gun blazing.

Yes, it takes more work and more manpower, but you can’t put all you’re eggs in Facebook’s basket anymore.
