hey katie, how's that new job of yours going?
well, thank you for asking!
it's been quite lovely.
but i have no complaints!
i really am very, very content thus far.
they sent me to a social media conference last weekend in tempe
let me tell you a unique feature of such a conference:
the audience is full of people who are likely on more than one techy device at a time, tweeting about the presentation as it's happening.
this is potentially the only venue out there where it's not rude to be actively using your cell phone, etc. during a presentation, yes?
what did i learn?
here's a couple tidbits...
50-60% of people check social media first thing after waking up
94% of buyers [online and in-store] perform an online search about the product before making a purchase
having a properly optimized video on your site makes it 53 times more likely to show up in the first page of a Google search
...pretty fascinating, eh?
are you cats into social media?
you'll find me at @k8ehawkes
