The Midwest has been dodging tornados, while the central north is getting pounded by one of the wettest springs in years. So when I was told about going to California for our Sacramento office’s grand opening and the Jay Baer social media event, I admit I was excited. I could endure the crippling time change to spend a few days in that wonderful California sun.
But as any farmer can tell you, Mother Nature doesn’t always cooperate. I think she has something against me.
But between unseasonably cool weather, rain, and tornadoes… YES, I said tornados, I learned a great deal and had a great time.
The AdFarm Sarcamento office sits on the 21st floor of a downtown office building, overlooking the local farmers’ market. The view of the skyline with thousands of trees lining the city is amazing.
But our new office space was only half of what was going on. The star of the show was Jay Baer and his talk was about social media and agriculture.
Jay is a great presenter who makes social media easy to understand, no matter what level you’re at or business you’re in. He recently wrote a book called The Now Revolution – 7 Shifts to make your business faster, smarter, and more social. His talk shared some of the book’s key points with an audience consisting of people from the Social Media Club of Sacramento and the writers of influential agriculture blogs. Even people who weren’t sure how to make the social sphere work for their company, but knew they needed to start paying attention were able to take home a lot of ideas from Jay’s talk. To reach as many AdFarmers, clients, and other interested people as possible, we live streamed the event and Jay fielded questions via our Twitter hash tag, #AdFarmLive.
And if you didn’t make it to Sacramento and didn’t catch our live stream of the event, you can watch it in its entirety by clicking here for the true live experience. We haven’t edited the video, what you see is exactly what you would have experienced in our Sacramento office at the Jay Baer social media event – minus the great eats and drinks.
So take a few minutes to sit back and enjoy the show, which includes a panel discussion with a few of AdFarm’s own social media advocates.
If you had taken part, in person or online, what questions would you have asked Jay Baer?
