24 Aug Here’s What You Missed At Social Fresh West 2013 [slideshows, photos, top tweets]
Social Fresh West is one of the bigger social media marketing conferences to hit the West Coast. This is the second year Fandom has partnered to help promote the event and attend. Each year seems to get better and better.
Best described as a combination of “big town speakers” with a “small town feel,” the conference was held at the Doubletree in San Diego August 22nd and 23rd. This year high caliber speakers filled two days of single track sessions on topics ranging from social content marketing to Slideshare domination. We had a few appearances from local leaders like hilarious co-host Stacy Zapar, the most connected woman on LinkedIn. And, national marketing powerhouses such as C.C. Chapman and Neal Schaffer.
Don’t be sad if you missed it. We’ve embedded slideshows from our favorite sessions along with top Twitter snippets. Watch for Social Fresh 2014 by signing up for updates on their website.

We love that Social Fresh doesn’t put their session presentations behind lock and key, and ask for more money to get to them. Get a ton of sessions here on Slideshare. Our favorite picks follow.

#socialfresh twitter tidbits
The best part about a social media conference is the networking we experience using Twitter and the event hashtag. The smartest quotes from speakers will bubble up here. Many of our friends who missed the conference were practically able to virtually attend in realtime following the hashtag. Here’s the best of the West on Twitter in no particular order. With one exception, up first you’ll find the first ever Social Fresh marriage proposal!

Your brand is what people say about you when you’re *not* in the room. The *web* is the room and it’s social. #socialfresh

What people actually want to talk about has nothing to do with your brand. Try to become part of their conversation. #socialfresh
