  16. Bell squad! Loved the first episode! When's #2?

  17. Believe it or not, I found this from Google Plus! 😉

  18. Greetings From Nigeria, honestly this is a great one, one that would eventually be referenced to in terms of solving issues of conversions in the marketing world.

    I am thrillingly interested in the episodes to come and the solutions to come out of it (the ups and down included – as this is inevitable).

    Well thought one to involve Chris Dayley.

    Speaking for Nigerians or Africa at large, who are extremely interested in Digital Marketing as a source of livelihood and passion, we are mostly held back from participating in events like yours due to financial constraints, this is not questioning the affordability of the event it'self (but we all know affordability is relative).

    With this little insight i would suggest you target agencies or agency holding companies in Nigeria and Africa, 'cos they have the financial ability to send in employees as part of their professional training.

    Secondly, in this part of the world certifications is an integral part, create a cult like certifications just as google is doing with its offerings and services – it's psychological for us Nigerians in particular, we can go a long way to achieving that cert (even if it means saving through the nose)

    so think about it, it would be great if Social media examiner comes in mind for every Nigerians and Africans at large when talking about social media marketing and advertising or even digital marketing in general.

    Pardon the long talk

    I just love Social Media Examiner
