  • My name is Eoin Kennedy and this evening I am going to share some of the digital marketing insights from an Unconference I organised at the end of November last year.
  • I am a hypocrite. 100%. Now let me tell you why. For over 5 years I have walked into lecture rooms, shut the door, blasted through 140 slides and spoken for 4 hours non stop. Consider that in a weeks time if you are engaged you will remember 10%Why I am hypocrite – well I know it not a great idea but I still do it.
  • But there is redemption.For a long time I have suspected that this way of passing knowledge is very efficient but probably not the most effective.In November I saw the light.
  • Sponsored eventBlog your way inEveryone equal
  • Email addresses change so often but LinkedIn was constant and they could easily check who you are.Ask for tweets, compos themDid not expect that excellent early posts would create such a problem
  • Share on own assets then promote through LinkedIn groups and google+. Try to get kick start comments and likes.
  • In conference from the first post. Share and @attendeeSocial = 70%; Twitter 56%, Facebook 22.9%, LinkedIn 17%, Google+1.24%, First news site 12th & 19thTop post education focusedSumall, SocialBro, Sprout Social, Topsy
  • Online discussion picked the eventual hashtag
  • Tweets from influentials really work when they mention peoples name. Many people want to seem interested to impress the influencer but wont take action. John Merriman quotes the importance of highly influential individuals to create change/action but Paul Adams in grouped is probably more accurate in that you need to influence smaller groups.
