Social Media Breakfast Toledo staged its first event this morning in neighboring Sylvania.
Thank you all for coming and making this such a success. We had 79 people attend the inaugural event at the Elks Club on Holland-Sylvania Rd. near Wildwood Metropark, and another 67 followed live on Ustream. Toledo’s WTOL provided the bright lights and TV interest that began before dawn on a rainy Friday.
Our panel of Victoria Kamm, Allen Mireles, Dave Rigotti and Damian Rintelmann were led by Michael Temple through a discussion of such topics as attracting new customers with social media, retaining existing customers with social media, and market research to learn what customers want through conversation.
The panel worked through questions on Twitter, LinkedIn, Ning and other social media platforms, citing personal experience on tactics, tools and trends.
There was no way to cover all things social media in the one hour time frame so we look forward to your comments on Twitter, Ning and other platforms to improve for the next event on May 1, also at the Elks.
