The Power of Understanding your Business Page

Tammy Hudgin spent the last nine years working her direct sales business (no longer involved with direct sales as the company closed their doors) on Facebook and embraced all the elements that were available to her.  One of the most valuable tools that she learned was that you need to sell yourself before you can sell your business.  She launched her Facebook Social Media business over four years ago and has trained over 600 business owners on how to work Facebook to build a presence and get their business out there.

Tammy helps additional clients by managing their business pages and offering business page creation/revamp, along with consultations.  Tammy has been a regular guest speaker for Rogers TV, spoken at Annual Conferences, Networking Meetings, nominated for 6 business awards, and has been interviewed on 2 radio blogs.  She is currently writing for a variety of online websites/blogs with her thoughts on using Facebook for business.  She embraces everything she learns from those she meets, she continues to be inspired by other business women and looks forward to building more relationships.

Stand Out from The Crowd
“Using the Power of Digital Media to Tell Your Story”

Keynote Speaker: Marc Smith, Social Media Influencer

In 2005, Marc jumped the shark and launched his own business producing events for corporations and charities. His business was on a nice growth trajectory and all things looked to be coming up roses…

Then the housing bubble burst in the US, Canada quickly followed and companies everywhere slashed budgets.
To save his business, the only option available was to market his services more aggressively, but Marc had no money.
Where did he turn? A little bird called Twitter kept tweeting at him and so he thought why not…

It’s been eight years since that fateful decision and in the time covered Marc was able to grow his business back up to pre-2008 levels and launch a travel blog that’s seen him travel all over North America in the past 4 years. The exposure and “celebrity” has landed Marc appearances on Breakfast TV, Global News, the CBC and many newspapers and radio stations across the country.

It all started with one little tweet, but that was just the beginning…

Thanks to this year’s sponsors!
