Photos from the Marketers Ball 2012 at 1015 Folsom, starring Too Short

After leaving ad:tech at the Moscone Center, I grabbed some dinner then headed over to 1015 Folsom for The Marketers Ball. The concert starred Too Short with a live band and included DJ YT Cracker, the Black Rock City Allstars and MASK featuring Money B. Sponsored by FriendFinder Networks and Infinite Traffic, promoter Darren Blatt’s many years of experience putting on these shows provided a very fun time for anyone that attended.

Photos from Tuesday at Ad Tech 2012 San Francisco

These photos were taken Tuesday at the digital marketing conference and expo, Ad:Tech 2012. Once again, the B2B conference and trade show was held at Moscone Center in San Francisco. I only had a few hours there so I did not get a chance to catch any keynotes to speak of, but it was good running into people that I have known over the years on the trade show circuit; and seeing what is new. While the standard exhibits of SEO/SEM service providers, ad networks and payment processors remain, there is a definite increase of exhibitors providing services in mobile …

Affiliate Summit West 2012 Begins

Internet marketing event, Affiliate Summit West 2012 begins tomorrow, January 8 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, NV. As I went through the photos I took at ASW11 I was reminded at how impressed I was at how much Affiliate Summit had grown since my last visit in 2008. If there is any doubt about the success of this event, consider that this is the 19th consecutive show that they have sold out due to capacity. That is pretty impressive. Unfortunately, I committed to something that fell through, so I was too late to try and get out to Las …

SCORE Small Business Growth Series

These photos are from the SCORE Small Business Growth Series, held at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Culver City. This particular event concentrated on social media marketing, Search Engine Optimization, Google Analytics, finances for small businesses and more. This was a free event for small business owners sponsored by City National Bank, Constant Contact and the Culver City Chamber of Commerce. I have been doing Internet Marketing since 1996 and I learned stuff there, so I have to recommend any upstart small business owner to look to see if there is a SCORE chapter near you.

Day two of APPNation III Conference and Expo

These photos were taken on day two of the B-to-B mobile application trade show, APPNation III. One common denominator I have noticed at every trade show I have attended over the years is that the day after a good party, there will be lower attendance the next morning. This held true on day two of APPNation III, however, that did not slow down the flow of information coming from the various panels and workshops or the enthusiasm of the attendees that came out. This was an informative event and I look forward to attending the next one. Back to Day …

APPNation III After Party at ROE

These photos are of the APPNation After party, sponsored by MobClix and MasterCard. At the end of a long day of seminars, panels, workshops and visiting the various booths on the APPNation III expo floor, it was time to head over to ROE Nightclub for the APPNation After Party for some serious networking. I know I had a good time and judging by the photos I am not alone. Back to After Party Photos Back to After Party Photos

Photos from Thursday at APPNation Conference

These photos are from Thursday at the APPNation Conference. Since I had to ride back to Los Angeles and traffic out of San Francisco is, in a word, horrific, so I decided to cut out a little early. These photos do include the morning keynote and panel sessions as well as some exhibit hall and sponsored workshop sessions. I had a great time at this mobile application marketing event and would like to thank everyone involved in making it an educational show. I hope to return.

Photos from APPNation workshops

These photos are of the various workshops and the press briefing from Wednesday at the APPNation Conference. One thing that no one can argue, APPNation was non-stop. After the keynotes, interviews and panel discussions they broke for lunch. Well, I guess some people broke for lunch. For others, there were several sponsored lunch workshops. There was also a press briefing and then the workshops really started. For the next four hours there were three workshops every half hour or so. Topics were suited for mobile application developers as well as those that wanted to monetize apps in one way or …

APPNation Conference photos – Panel Sessions

These photos were taken at the various panel sessions held Wednesday at the APPNation Conference, SF. It is said that one picture is worth 1,000 words, but as I review these photos I am afraid that is not really the case. The best I can do is provide photos of the people, their names at times and some charts. A video would be required to truly convey the information provided at this mobile application marketing event. The theme of “Show Me the Money” was quite evident with the topics covered. Return To APPNation Panel Photos Return To APPNation Panel Photos

APPNation Conference expo photos

Along with the many workshops and panel sessions, which went on literally all day long, there was an exhibit hall. There were quite a few exhibitors with everything from new mobile applications looking to get discovered, to mobile app developers, to app stores, to Samsung and Yahoo. In my opinion, if you are thinking of getting into monetizing or developing mobile applications, there was something there for you. Back To APPNation Expo Photos Back To APPNation Expo Photos
