See what a few of the conference attendees had to say about their business, how they are using social media and why Portland, Maine is a great place to be.

‘Marketing: the management process that identifies , anticipates and satisfies customer requirements profitably’
–The Chartered Institute of Marketing

The fundamentals of marketing haven’t changed –  the tools have changed.

And these new tools have turned businesses upside down. Social media promotes a two-way conversation with your prospects and clients, which is no longer an option; it’s the rule. And while you might realize you need to “join the conversation”, you know a successful social media effort is more than a blog here or a Tweet there; it’s more than learning a new technology.

So, what does it take to be successful in social media?
