Social Media Conference attendance at SASCon 2012 Manchester
The third Search, Analytics and Social Media conference (SAScon) in Manchester promises to be bigger and better than ever. Not only is it offering a great line up of internationally renowned speakers but is also attracting great attendees who will contribute to the networking and debates during what promises to be lively sessions. One of these attendees will be Lisa Dickinson a small business owner in Manchester who wants to learn more about Search and Social Media Marketing for her business.
SASCon takes place on the 17th and 18th May 2012 and it is just one of many reasons why the Manchester Search and Social Media Marketing community is a great asset to the region. The organisers of the conference are also active supporters of the #SSMM course at Salford Business School which is now delivered from the cutting edge MediaCityUK campus of the University of Salford.
The course is delivered in partnership with industry speakers, who share their knowledge of latest practice and offer delegates the chance to show their skills by writing a blog post – the culmination of their learning experience. The blog posts and their presentations have been judged and the coveted prize includes Free Entry to the SASCon conference.
More than just the Queen’s Jubilee year for a Manchester Florist
For the past ten weeks Lisa Dickinson has been attending the Search and Social Media Marketing course at MediaCityUK. During this time Lisa discovered that:
- her www.venusinmanchester.co.uk website had been copied by another business and she has been successful in arranging the deletion of the copy website
- the “Queen of Shops” got it wrong when it comes to eCommerce for small businesses on the high street
- her flowers were presented to the Queen on her 2012 Jubilee visit to Manchester when she opened MediaCityUK
- she had won the best blog post and presentation which entitles her to attend SAScon 2012 conference.
Lisa Dickinson is an inspiration for many Small and Media Sized organisations, who as a Manchester based small business owner is challenging the perceptions of Mary Portas and many others that Social Media and Search Engine Optimisation, rather than helping to bring about the demise of the High Street, can actually be a lifeline for it.
Lisa received the SASCon free entry prize from Richard George – one of a team of great industry speakers who make this Search and Social Media Marketing a unique cutting edge learning experience.
